Messed up css since update from 0.9.7 to 1.0.1+

Recommended Posts

Sergey

Hello.

When I installed and adopted DMS 0.9.7, my website http://qsme.ru became clean and readable, which was great.

Then eventually DMS 1.0.1 came up (and 1.0.2 yesterday), and since then much of that beauty gone away. To be specific:

  • Lists (ul, ol) font is now with font-size: 90% (.hentry ul, .hentry ol { font-size: 90%; } ). Why 90% is for? All lists became so small and unreadable!
  • Tables now have solid borders by default (instead of no border) but without top border for the first row ( tr:first-child td { border-top: 0; } ) ! Moreover, applying any borders to table makes them look ugly (e.g. bootstrap's "table" class gives additional 1px border causing 2px border total)
  • Giant margins for headers ( .hentry h1, .hentry h2, .hentry h3, .hentry h4, .hentry h5, .hentry h6 { margin: 1em 0; } ), big margins for paragraps ( margin: 1.55em 0; ) together they gives just enormous spacing.

All this issues strikes immediately simply by looking at website homepage.

I understand that you guys are trying to make default style clean and beautiful, so my questions are

  1. Are there any chances that you will fix issues mentioned above?
  2. If no, could you please provide link to DMS 0.9.7 archive? I did not find it on your GitHub repo.

Thanks.

 

PS: I did not do any css / less customizations yet and, to be honest, i don't want to, because i don't think that trying to "fight back" default theme css is a good idea, especially if that css could change so unpredictably.

Оверрайд через опции стилей вроде #h1 [...] и т.п. наше всё!

 

Более того, я б рекомендовал поставить дочернюю тему, типа nick base theme чтобы внесённые настройки темы не сносились при обновлении самого ДМС.


Sorry for my english. Grammar for me is a big trouble :)

Hi Sergey - I think your best bet is to upload a child theme, tweak the CSS a little bit to get it back to where you like it, and then from that point on you won't have to worry about updates changing the look you've put together. Information on child themes is available at http://docs.pagelines.com/customize/base-child-theme, and a base theme is available at https://www.dropbox.com/s/g0tgq9ug1h1km98/dms-template-theme.zip.


Have you searched the forums yet or checked out the DMS user docs?

Thanks Jake.

I'm sure this could help me right now, but how long will it last? I mean, ok, I will tweak some rules here and there to get it back and then new DMS update will arrive with even more changes so styles will need even more "hacking". I understand that nobody is guaranteed that stock DMS look'n'feel won't change and that's ok, but I said "hacking" because e.g. font-size:90% for lists was sooo unpredictable, that (imho) writing rules like font-size:100% where they aren't expected (naturally) seems like hacking. the same holds for the very strange table borders rules, I'm even considering it as a some kind of bug actually.

 

ps: btw, doc you pointed at states that base child theme "available free from the PageLines Store", but actually its not. there are only 5 paid themes and thats all. anyway, thanks for the direct link.

 

pps: still, i would appreciate if you could provide me a link to DMS 0.9.7

Sergey - I completely understand your perspective and have passed your concerns along to our developers. Since the DMS release is so recent, the updates are coming out fast and furious as folks are bringing tweaks and enhancement requests to our attention. Thank you for your patience. And you are correct, our base theme for DMS is also forthcoming.

 

Though we don't normally recommend it and upgrading will most likely be something you'll want/have to do at some point in the future, if you still have your original download from when you purchased DMS you could FTP it up and be back to the previous version. We only go back a couple of versions on Github at https://github.com/pagelines/DMS/releases but perhaps 1.0.0 will give you what you're looking for.

 

I hope that helps.

Ok, I'll revert to it for now and will be waiting until base theme will be available through the store and (at least some of) issues will be resolved.

Thanks Jake, thanks to the developer.

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

      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 -

      Hello,
      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.
