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 guys,
      every since Chrome introduce scroll anchoring (see chrome://flags) blog posts on my page start scroll automatically as soon as the user scrolls down a bit. It is super annoying and I don't know exactly what triggers the incompatibility with Chrome's latest feature that is supposed to improve usability.
      Since I don't know what causes it (Pagelines, or a Plugin), I would like to disable the feature using a CSS override that Google describes as follow:
      "Scroll anchoring aims to be the default mode of behavior when launched, so that users benefit from it even on legacy content. A CSS property overflow-anchor can disable scroll anchoring in part or all of a webpage (opt out), or exclude portions of the DOM from the anchor node selection algorithm. This property supports the following values when applied to an element E:
      overflow-anchor: auto (the default value) declares that the DOM subtree rooted at E is eligible to participate in the anchor node selection algorithm for any scrolling box created by E or an ancestor of E. overflow-anchor: none declares that the DOM subtree rooted at E is not eligible to participate in the anchor node selection algorithm for any scrolling box created by E or an ancestor of E." Do you guys happen to know how to use that property with the ROOT element so it applies to the whole page?

      Good morning,
      I have set up my homepage using the Elements sections, a Masthead at the top and then a selection of Heroes lower down.
      I only just realised that the Heroes set a H1, as does the Masthead.
      Is there an easy way I can change the Heroes to an H2/H3 etc so as to improve the structure of my headers, whilst keeping the Masthead as H1?
      I really don't know much at all about CSS, which is why I use Pagelines because it's just so easy to create good looking pages without too much confusion.

      I'm basically a designer and understand a little on how to change CSS, etc., so please excuse my ignorance...  I recently upgraded to the newest platform from the DMS and my old DMS theme no longer functions.  I'm trying to replace the image slider that my Horizon Photography Theme (Nick Haskins) had created.  The Impulse image slider seemed the closest to what I need, but there are problems.
      It seems the the Impulse section for sliding images defaults to the image width, no the height.  I can change the Impulse stage height and width, but this does nothing to the internal content.  For instance, if I change the height to 200 pixels, the image remains the full width and only shows a cropped section.  I would like the ability to change the Impulse height, and have the image height fit space. 
      I've put this custom CSS in, but again, this only controls the stage height of Impulse:
      .pl-sn-impulse .pl-impulse-cell .cell-wrap, .pl-impulse-container, .owl-stage-outer {
        width: 100%;
      Any suggestions welcome.  Thanks

      I have just realized that CSS (Less plugin) , is not working..... I have disable all plugins (except PL CUSTOM LESS and PL5) , and ... it's not working ... 
      It's not the first time. Usually I had trouble with a plugin name Autoptimize , but it's Desactivate now , all memory have been purge, and it's still not working! :-/ So it's not from this plugin. 
      NB : When I am logged on my website, if i go on the black wordpress dashboard bar, go on the PL icon, clic on </> LESS/CSS => then the page suddenly apply the CSS .... But As soon that i reload the page, nothing. I think the problem is that the plugin LESS/CSS does not load properly (if I can say that with my simples words).
      I order to keep the site "good looking" I have temporally copy/paste all my LESS code in a plugin : Script n Styles that apply the LESS/CSS code... but it's not a solution for long time.
      Can someone help me ? Did I do something wrong ? Is it an update ?

      Feel free to delete this post if its not helpful or its just plain wrong.
      I though it might be useful to share how I customize the size of the builder. (reduce my eyestrain )
      1 - install stylerbot extension in chrome (stylerbot keeps this css every time you access the url)
      2- add this css to stylerbot for the site you are working on
      .CodeMirror {
          font-size: 14px;
          height: 600px;
      .pl-workarea.pl-has-sidebar .pl-workarea-sidebar-container {
          right: 0px;
          width: 500px;
      .pl-workarea.pl-has-sidebar .iframe-container {
          right: 500px ;
      change sizes to suit.
