Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

I'm using two sets of boxes on the home page of this site: http://ewiconnect.com.166-70-198-2.plesk02.xmission.com/wordpress/

 

I'd like to customize the text and header etc of the upper set of boxes separately from the lower set of boxes. I want top set to be the same. And the bottom set to be the same. But the two sets to be different. 

 

I did assign a custom class to the individual boxes in the upper set. Just not sure how to call out the selector in css using the new class.

Hello Bonnysteele 

 

what names did you give to the boxes? 


The answer to many issues can be found by searching in the forum before posting as someone else  may very well have had the same problem before you have.  Also, reading the documentation can help you gain a good understanding of how everything works.

The top set is named "threecs"

 

The bottom set is named "foot"

Hi, presently, in looking at your site, it appears the installation is corrupted.

 

I'm not sure what you're using the second set of boxes for, but you might be able to replace that or even both with our Grid System, found at demo.pagelines.me/tools

 

The Grid System can help you by making fully customizable, responsive boxes.  Think of it as a shortcode to making a table.

 

Since it's shortcode, you can place it almost anywhere, use it several times on the page or post, and put most any content into its 'cells'.   Each part can have its own customization, by simply adding a div with a unique class or ID with corresponding CSS.  So, backgrounds, text, color, alignment, etc, are all no problem, compared to the difficulties of Boxes.

 

Just a thought.

Can you just confirm you set the boxes custom class here http://d.pr/i/Vjrh in each box itself.

Yes. I just double checked. In the set of three upper boxes, each box has been given custom class "threecs"  and the lower set of 4 has been given the name "foot"

Thanks Rob. I can totally try this. And I'll likely use this grid on other pages of the site too. Awesome.

Hi there,

 

If you're looking to call a box set on a particular class to make css adjustments you can use the class you set to apply the changes to. They would need to be entered like in martins screenshot, then for example on the classes that you've set you'd use the below css format to make the changes.  The code can be pasted directly into Pagelines>site options>custom code to take affect.

 

.threecs {your css;}

 

.foot {your css;}

 

If you've not used css within the framework prior, check out the overview at - http://support.pagelines.me/docs/customization/custom-css/ which will give an example on the css structure and using web developer tools like firebug and chrome dev tools to see the css  changes live in the browser prior to pasting them back into the main css code to take affect on the site.

Thanks James.

 

I did assign those class names like Martin was asking but it seems they aren't working. I tried adding custom css and it didn't work and when I inspect with Firebug the class names seem to still be the same. 

 

I can edit .fboxtitle and .fboxtext classes but they change all boxes and sets. I'd like to edit the title and text for each set separately.

Hi,

 

If you use Firebug or Chrome's Inspection Tool, you'll see that there is a unique box identifier.  You will see something like fbox_1090 (each number is unique).  It falls under fbox class.

 

So, you can assign custom CSS to the individual box by prefixing with the class and the ID, such as .fbox fbox_1090 then followed by the rest of your CSS.

 

As I pointed out, in the grid system, you can apply a div like <div class="myboxes1">your heading content</div> then edit anything you place within the div by adding CSS.

      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?
      Thanks
      Michael

      Hello,
       
      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

      Hello. 
      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.
       
      Cheers.

      Hi.
      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?
