Problems with Custom CSS Styling on Mobile/Ipad

Recommended Posts


Hi. I have the same theme on all 5 of my sites and styled them quite the same (same plugins, colors etc).


I entered my my custom css styling in my childtheme. Now it seems to work only on Google Chrome on my Desktop.

If I open my site in IE on the desktop, Google Chrome or Safari on my Ipad and Iphone it goes crazy.


Some of the css styling works but the header + logo size, sidebar-background, tabs (widget) - color and spacing, optin bars spill over widgets and fixed navbar - font color etc.


It varies from site to site but that is the basic problems. Is there a way to fix this?

I see your sites on Firefox on a Windows 7 machine without any problem.

Is example the tabs you see black or are they orange?


If black then the css does not work.

Did you edit the following, for example:

#rum_sst_tab {
    background-color: rgb(0, 0, 0);
    border-bottom-left-radius: 10px;
    border-bottom-right-radius: 10px;
    border-style: solid;
    border-width: 0;
    color: rgb(255, 255, 255);
    font-family: Arial,sans-serif;
    top: 350px;

There is an option for the NavBar to be orange in Dashboard > PageLines > Site Options > NavBar

I have now tried everything. I have one site that work and compared it to the others - disabled all plugins etc that was not the same.

I cannot understand why it doesn't work. I changed the font color and size on the navbar, I want the navbar black. I know that some

of the css styling work on the mobile and ipad example the black borders around the sidebars. So why don't the other styling work?

Hi there,


I see your site like this - http://screencast.com/t/t9WTfAdZn


You have a cache plugin installed on your site, these can mask the caches on your site. Dump the cache file inside the plugin settings then disable the plugin, if you just disable without clearing the cache it won't work and you'll still see a previously saved version of your site.


If that doesn't work I would say backtrack through your css, adding a couple of lines at a time to see if the changes take effect up until a point and then change, it could be something in the code affecting it.

Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

      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 -

      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.

      Not sure exactly what is causing the issue. For some reason, why you view my site on mobile, the menu does not show up. It will pop up, but it is black. You can check it out here: http://dev.caryfbc.org. I'm also attaching a screenshot where I shrunk my browser down. Any suggestions?
