Make Masthead 100% of screen width?

Recommended Posts


Hi, just switched to DMS, loving it .. have tried adding a class and some right click, inspect etc to set the css to make a masthead go full width of the screen so I can set it to have a particular background color and font color for that area but I can't seem to get it


Can anyone help me with the css required please?


Any help greatly appreciated!


This is the site I'm working on..

Add a new Full Width Section and add your Masthead into this new section.  In the section area settings -- standard options box, add a new class (don't include the dot. before the class name...just the word like-  specialclass not-  .specialclass, then in the Custom Code (LESS/CSS) box add the new class (with the dot this time) .specialclass and give it a value for background color like this;    .specialclass {background:red;}, publish it, and refresh browser, the entire (full screen width) section containing your masthead should now be red.

Thanks for such a quick reply!


I tried dragging in a full width section but it will only go above or below the page in general?


I cannot get it to sit in between other sections like the mastheads that I have a placed a few of underneath my post loop. I can get it to sit on top of the footer, or below the footer, or above the page under the header but not in between?


Will try experimenting further with css for the div the mashead creates and giving the masthead a class and see if I can find the right selectors and css, am guessing something to do with position: relative; width: 100% !important; z-index perhaps ??


Any suggestions welcomed!


Thanks again

If I understand correctly, you want to have the Masthead that currently has the following text.


We take care of all your development needs


To have the blue background go full width is this correct, if that is so. I have created a doc page that has instructions on how to achieve this look.




So from the instructions on the doc above, create some custom CSS using your light blue color.


.my-light-blue {

background-color: #68b4e0;



Then once you have added the the Full Width section and inserted the Masthead into it, click on the Edit icon for the Full Width section and in the Standard Options > Styling Classes, add the following:




Then click publish and refresh, your Masthead area should now appear full width :D

      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 -

      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.
