Css codes for pagelines sections

Recommended Posts


So why can't we have a list of the css codes that apply to each pagelines section to make the styling classes and custom css easier? For example:


Hero Section


.pl-hero-wrap .pl-hero h1 > Changes the style of the title of the hero section


iBox Section



What I've noticed is that every time someone asks a question about css and styling classes, the default answer is go to Chrome developer tools / firefox / etc. and find the css. I understand that for the more savvy people, that may be the easiest way. But for me (a newbie), that's only useful if you know what you're looking for (i.e.. that .pl-hero-wrap .pl-hero h1) equals  title areas of the Hero section. Eg. I'd like to change the colour of the icon-font in my ibox section, but for the life of me, I can't work out which are the right codes to use (I've been trying with Google Chrome).


Obviously, I am not a coder and am very ignorant around all this stuff. I can't help thinking that a list would be pretty useful. Thanks anyway.

Hi ppotent


I give you an example, you add this

Custome Code

.pl-hero-wrap .pl-hero h1 {

    font-size: 40px;}

And you change the size of the hero title


My exemplary code is not necessarily applicable as written, to your site, so please adjust accordingly.


See the image:




You can see more information at



You should be using Firebug for Firefox to inspect the site and find the appropriate code, then transferring/editing it into Custom Code via Chrome in the Visual Editor's Custom Code area.


You can see this for Firebug



If you need more CSS help, make sure you've downloaded Firebug for Firefox

and check out W3 Schools for more info. 



Please, you try to learn it slowly, you make examples, this is very easy, I'm a newbie too.

I learn searching at forum.

Thanks for the info - I have been using Firebug and after a while identifying the correct classes and making CSS changes starts to make sense. But I'm really struggling to do the same with Chrome since I had to switch for DMS. Since developer tools are built in to Chrome it should have the same function but I can't identify anything!

Hi nfp1900


The same thing happens with Chrome, is more friendly Firefox to me.
I should practice more with "this Chrome"

      Hi, even though I just got a SSL certificate, I can't get the green padlock to appear due to the following error:
      :A file with an insecure url of "http://yemoonyah.com/wp-content/plugins/pl-section-boxes/check.svg" was loaded via the javascript file: https://yemoonyah.com/wp-includes/js/jquery/jquery.js?ver=1.12.4 on line 3. The insecure URL may not be directly contained in the script file and may exist elsewhere."
      I figured if I delete and re-install the plugin it might fix the problem but will my boxes on the website still be there? Or do I have to redesign everything all over again if I delete the plugin and then re-install it?

      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.

      I need some help!  I am trying to add a Square booking script.  When I add it to a embed section it crashes the page editor and I am unable to save the page version.  I have tried using different browsers with the same result.
       I can add the script on the backend in the word press content area and get it to show and work, but it look terrible.  A page with in a page.  http://www.zoeanastacia.com/booking/.
      I need help getting the page editor to work properly or to make the wp content section to not look like an 90's iframe.
