header image trough header+content

Recommended Posts



I need to center my background image behind the navigation and content. I tried with this code:


#branding .content {
   <span class="searchlite">background</span>-<span class="searchlite">image</span>: url('http://wp.tanzprojekte.ch/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/header_schrift_01.jpg');
   <span class="searchlite">background</span>-position: center;
   <span class="searchlite">background</span>-repeat: no-repeat;
   <span class="searchlite">background</span>-height:600px;
   <span class="searchlite">background</span>-width: 995px;
   <span class="searchlite">background</span>-left: 300px ;

But the image remains cutted of. I use a full width layout and it has to be responsive. I tried also with a z-index position...but it did not work out....

Can you help me?

Thx Corina

Hi Corina,


The CSS you're using is incorrect. It mixes stylesheet CSS with inline CSS, which is not the best way to achieve results.  I'll recommend you study the resources here to learn more about CSS:  http://w3schools.com/css/


You should apply the background to the site using our internal settings, found at Dashboard > PageLines > Site Options > Color Control.  There, you can upload a background image, without CSS, and set the vertical alignment and horizontal alignments correctly, without custom coding.


As for the brand logo, that will require some CSS, but the method of doing that is probably best achieved with a plugin we offer called Sexy Snips, found in Dashboard > PageLines > Store > Plugins > Top Free.  Just install and activate it, and Sexy Snips will provide you with the CSS to center a branding image.

Hi Rob. Thx for your response.

Css is not a problem, i'll correct the code...I tried before the background image option, but i do not liked it at all. Infact, it is not a usual background...more a header background entering in the content area.

when i scroll down the page, the bg-image has to scroll up and to disappear and with this method i did not found out the css selectors of the background...

I will try with the sexy snips and let you know.

      Shouldn't the image PL5 component be using the srcset/picture css directives to pick the correct size for an image? or it does already and I don't know how to use it? Thank you for any advice or enlightenment.

      Please see screenshot. I think it should be self-explanatory.

      Good Evening/Afternoon or Morning, 
      I am running into a problem with CSS styling not applying inside of most browsers (Safari, Firefox) when I am logged in to wordpress, and all browsers that I have tested when I am logged off and the site has been made public (Chrome, Firefox and Safari).
      As a result, I have managed to identify the probable cause. It looks as though these browsers are refusing to render my sites compiled CSS file due to it being a HTTP URL rather than HTTPS.
      I have attempted to change this URL to HTTPS in my browser, however it brings back an ERROR: File not found page - https://www.shortfilmblog.com/wp-content/uploads/pagelines/compiled-css-core-1505847507.css
      What would you suggest in this regard? Would this be resolvable from your end?
      Happy to provide any further details required.

      I know this is not an easy problem. Maybe there is a easy solution.
      I have tryed to uses the existing solution, that I have found in the forum
      I changed the colours of my nav (simple nav) and the hover effect (a. hover).
      I really tryed to highlight the active/used link in the nav but I cant figure it out.
      I want it to be black when active.
      Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

      Hi guys,
      every since Chrome introduce scroll anchoring (see chrome://flags) blog posts on my page start scroll automatically as soon as the user scrolls down a bit. It is super annoying and I don't know exactly what triggers the incompatibility with Chrome's latest feature that is supposed to improve usability.
      Since I don't know what causes it (Pagelines, or a Plugin), I would like to disable the feature using a CSS override that Google describes as follow:
      "Scroll anchoring aims to be the default mode of behavior when launched, so that users benefit from it even on legacy content. A CSS property overflow-anchor can disable scroll anchoring in part or all of a webpage (opt out), or exclude portions of the DOM from the anchor node selection algorithm. This property supports the following values when applied to an element E:
      overflow-anchor: auto (the default value) declares that the DOM subtree rooted at E is eligible to participate in the anchor node selection algorithm for any scrolling box created by E or an ancestor of E. overflow-anchor: none declares that the DOM subtree rooted at E is not eligible to participate in the anchor node selection algorithm for any scrolling box created by E or an ancestor of E." Do you guys happen to know how to use that property with the ROOT element so it applies to the whole page?
