pagelines-compiled-css won't cache

Recommended Posts

mtaus

I just setup W3 Total Cache on this site and it appears that all the assets have are working on the CDN (Amazon S3), except for this file: /wp-content/themes/pagelines/pagelines-compiled-css-X_XXXXXXXXXX

 

While most of the site's CSS seems to be working, the CSS will not load for the /blog/ section of the site. Any ideas?

 

Thanks in advance.

Ok first things 1st.

 

Clear the cache and disable the plugin.

 

The reason the file is not pushed to the CDN is that is not a real file.

This is because for whatever reason the Framework could not write a real css file so it falls back to this dynamic fake css file, works fine for browsers but not so with cdns.

 

So enable debug under advanced settings and we might be able to help more.

Thanks, Simon. I've enabled debug. What now?

Might be enabled for you but all we see is a cached page.

 

We cant do anything at all until we see live pages, sorry.

Oops... I thought I had disabled it. Can you try now?

PHP User : Posix functions are disabled on this host!
So your gonna have to force it.
 
Install the free pagelines-customize plugin. You'll see it in the store.
Activate it.
Open wp-contents/plugins/pagelines-customize/functions.php
Add the following:

Thanks, Simon. I've added the above to the end of functions.php. However, the pagelines compiled css is still not working. This may have something to do with the fact that I'm using a child theme. Thoughts?

Simon, I see that now. Thanks for the help... However, the custom LESS code is no longer working.

What custom less code?

I have some custom LESS code in the Pagelines panel to change NavBar and some other items. Since, I've activated the Customization Plugin the styles are slightly off in some places. For example, to set the logo size in nav I added the following: 

 

.plbrand{

...

img{max-height: 59px;} 

}

 

This is correctly setting the logo size, but it is also forcing other images on the site to a max height of 59px, for example here http://www.crowdstreet.com/real-estate/future-of-real-estate-crowdfunding/ and  http://www.crowdstreet.com/about/

Simon, I figured this out. I apparently had a duplicate style sheet in place which was causing an error. Sorry to trouble you and thanks for your help. 

 

Feeling bleary-eyed after several hours of mindless troubleshooting. So, I'm going to try to get this CDN in place after a few beers and a good night sleep!

 

Many thanks!

I've continued to have problems with the way that my caching plugin (W3 Total Cache) works with Pagelines' CSS compiler, specifically because the compiled css file gets a new filename whenever changes are made. I found a workaround that I wanted to share, just in case anyone else runs in to this issue.

 

I was able to solve this problem, but adding the following to the CDN > Custom File list in W3TC: wp-content/uploads/pagelines/compiled-css-*.css ... By including an asterisk (*) instead of the generated number, W3TC will load and serve any new variation of the compiled CSS file.

 

Hope this helps! :)

I have a new site that is running DMS. Wondering if this solution from Simon_P (below) works with DMS, too. I can't seem to figure out how to install the customize plugin.

You can put it in a child theme functions file too.

      Hi guys!
      I have noticed that my primary sidebar becomes intermittently invisible when browsing through various blog articles on michaelkummer.com/blog.
      See:
      https://www.dropbox.com/s/z646sgoa3mfjl1j/Screenshot 2018-07-12 15.57.46.jpg?dl=0 and https://www.dropbox.com/s/vdledzzgginvwgv/Screenshot 2018-07-12 15.57.57.jpg?dl=0
      Upon refresh, the sidebar appears. I have been using the following CSS code to hide the sidebar on mobile without any issues. 
      @media only screen and (max-width: 993px) {
      /* hide sidebars */
           .plsb {
              display: none !important;
          }
      }
      I tried to add the following CSS to force the sidebar to show on screens that are wider than 994 pixels but to no avail. Any clue what could be causing this issue?

      Hi guys!
      I am using the LESS/CSS Pagelines extension and tried to add the following code to make use of FontAwesome:
      a.c2a:before {
          content: "\f07a\00a0";
          font-family: "Font Awesome 5 Pro";
          Font-weight: 900;
          font-style: normal;
          font-weight: normal;
          text-decoration: inherit;
          padding-left: 4px;
      }
       
      The issue is that as soon as I have the CSS via the Custom Styling text box, Pagelines (or the extension) strips out the backslashes (\). As a result, I had to abandon the CSS/LESS extension and instead add all my CSS code to a separate .css file.
      Is there a fix or workaround for this?
      Thanks

      Hello, I am having a problem similar to that experienced by Michael Kummer here. We have pages that show this automatic scrolling issue (examples here and here) and it is sufficiently annoying that we have seen customers bounce while trying to convert. Strangely, it only happens at specific resolutions, so it can be difficult to reproduce. In general we can only consistently reproduce it on a 4k resolution with a browser width between 1517 and 1536px. 
      Thanks to Michael Kummer's help we were able to set the overflow-anchor property to none in the entire body, which fixed the issue as far as we can tell, but also obviously disabled scroll anchoring for the whole site. I tried applying it to the specific element that looked like it was being reloaded, which was the PL Meganav extension, but that was unsuccessful. 
      Can anyone help us figure out which element or ID we can apply this property to, so that we can fix the scrolling issue but not disable scroll anchoring for the entire site?
      Thank you -

      Hello,
      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.

      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.
