Pagelines Utility Classes

Recommended Posts


Are the pagelines utility classes still applicable? For instance, does this documentation still apply to pagelines? 


For example, let's say I am editing the mediabox section of my site. Within the section options of the DMS live editing, there is a place to fill in "styling classes" (labeled as "Standard Options"). If I were to put the ".hidden-phone" utility class in the LOCAL (or GLOBAL) section options, would this media-box be "hidden" when viewed from a mobile device? 


If no, then I guess these classes cannot be applied in this way. Please clarify if not and I can ask my subsequent questions accordingly.


On another note, should i write my OWN media query for my mobile customizations? or do you all have any suggestions for mobile theme and DMS? thanks.

All the documentation for DMS is located at http://docs.pagelines.com.  You're viewing something old, as far as know, with that link you provided.


The Standard Options > Styling Classes field is intended to let you add a new class or more than one, you wish to apply to the Media Box.  You'd add the word for each class only. NOT the applicable code. As far as I know, you'd not even put in .hidden-phone but something like hidden-phone (no preceding period). 


To explain more about the Styling Classes field, please see: http://docs.pagelines.com/tutorials/section-area-styling


If you're expecting the Media Box to be hidden by CSS on mobile devices, you should simply apply the correct CSS to display none (as you suggest) to the Custom Code area, but, you must , where the CSS includes browser specific CSS.  I'm saying this because I do not believe that @media refers to the Media Box, but to media, such as videos, images, etc.  See http://docs.pagelines.com/tutorials/browser-specific-css

      How can I get support on pagelines DMS? The product isn't that old and my skeleton themes aren't working and I can't get support in the same way?

      I have a number of legacy websites that are running on the above version of Pagelines DMS, where the template has stopped working. I am using a skeleton theme to all of them. What do I need to do to rectify this.

      I am hoping to figure out how I can get my PageLines Full Nav to display layered in front of a sticky footer element on my website - 3keymedia.com
      I would like the Full Nav to overlay the entire screen when opening the menu as you will see when opening on a desktop the footer of nav content is cropped by the sticky footer.

      Hi everyone, since Instagram had allowed to publish in different ratio formats (instead of only square ratio) the grams stripe has different heights. Can you tell me if i can fix it easily with some CSS?

      Hi guys!
      I have noticed that my primary sidebar becomes intermittently invisible when browsing through various blog articles on michaelkummer.com/blog.
      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?
