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

      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?

      Hi guys!
      I am using the LESS/CSS Pagelines extension and tried to add the following code to make use of FontAwesome:
      a.c2a:before {
          content: "\f07a\00a0";
          font-family: "Font Awesome 5 Pro";
          Font-weight: 900;
          font-style: normal;
          font-weight: normal;
          text-decoration: inherit;
          padding-left: 4px;
      The issue is that as soon as I have the CSS via the Custom Styling text box, Pagelines (or the extension) strips out the backslashes (\). As a result, I had to abandon the CSS/LESS extension and instead add all my CSS code to a separate .css file.
      Is there a fix or workaround for this?

      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 -
