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

      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 am having an issue with DMS editor not loading.  Just keeps spinning and spinning.
      Have tried several things - Logged in and out, cleared cache, deactivated all plugins, but the issue persists.
      I even had our host restore from a backup a few weeks ago, when I know it WAS working, as I edited a text box on the homepage.  The restore from backup didn't help either.
      Also, the front end of the site shows that the site is framed, or boxed now (whatever you call it), instead of full width as it was previously (last week).
      Dev console shows that there are php errors in Google maps - file is attached.
      Can someone please help?  Not sure what else I can do here...
      Thanks in advance.
