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.

      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?

      I'm basically a designer and understand a little on how to change CSS, etc., so please excuse my ignorance...  I recently upgraded to the newest platform from the DMS and my old DMS theme no longer functions.  I'm trying to replace the image slider that my Horizon Photography Theme (Nick Haskins) had created.  The Impulse image slider seemed the closest to what I need, but there are problems.
      It seems the the Impulse section for sliding images defaults to the image width, no the height.  I can change the Impulse stage height and width, but this does nothing to the internal content.  For instance, if I change the height to 200 pixels, the image remains the full width and only shows a cropped section.  I would like the ability to change the Impulse height, and have the image height fit space. 
      I've put this custom CSS in, but again, this only controls the stage height of Impulse:
      .pl-sn-impulse .pl-impulse-cell .cell-wrap, .pl-impulse-container, .owl-stage-outer {
        width: 100%;
      Any suggestions welcome.  Thanks

      I have just realized that CSS (Less plugin) , is not working..... I have disable all plugins (except PL CUSTOM LESS and PL5) , and ... it's not working ... 
      It's not the first time. Usually I had trouble with a plugin name Autoptimize , but it's Desactivate now , all memory have been purge, and it's still not working! :-/ So it's not from this plugin. 
      NB : When I am logged on my website, if i go on the black wordpress dashboard bar, go on the PL icon, clic on </> LESS/CSS => then the page suddenly apply the CSS .... But As soon that i reload the page, nothing. I think the problem is that the plugin LESS/CSS does not load properly (if I can say that with my simples words).
      I order to keep the site "good looking" I have temporally copy/paste all my LESS code in a plugin : Script n Styles that apply the LESS/CSS code... but it's not a solution for long time.
      Can someone help me ? Did I do something wrong ? Is it an update ?

      Feel free to delete this post if its not helpful or its just plain wrong.
      I though it might be useful to share how I customize the size of the builder. (reduce my eyestrain )
      1 - install stylerbot extension in chrome (stylerbot keeps this css every time you access the url)
      2- add this css to stylerbot for the site you are working on
      .CodeMirror {
          font-size: 14px;
          height: 600px;
      .pl-workarea.pl-has-sidebar .pl-workarea-sidebar-container {
          right: 0px;
          width: 500px;
      .pl-workarea.pl-has-sidebar .iframe-container {
          right: 500px ;
      change sizes to suit.

      I can't seem to get the Teamwork section to accept custom css. I am trying to change the padding from 7em to 1em on the splash part
      I have tried
        .pl-sn-teamwork .pl-tw-splash {
          padding-top: 1em;
          padding-bottom: 1em;
      This works in chrome inspect but when added to custom css nothing happens.
      I have also tried most of the classes I can see accoiated with this section but again nothng seems to happen.
      Any ideas?
