Editing Type Style in RevSlider

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to change the type style for the headlines in the Revslider?

I would like to remove the box around the type and just go with dark grey type.

Hi novsun - You could create a custom styling class and add that into the section area or you could modify the CSS that controls that text:

 

.revslider-container .slider-content h2 .slider-text

 

You'll want to remove the background and box shadow and change the color to your liking as well.

Jake,

 

Thanks for the reply.

 

I'm not very skilled with adding new css classes. is that difficult?

 

Im more familiar with editing an existing css class, should be fine, I'm not sure where else it would matter to have box shadow for contrast.

 

Thanks,

Andy

Hey Andy - Adding new classes is very easy actually, check out this how-to and you'll see what I mean. http://docs.pagelines.com/tutorials/section-area-styling.

 

That said, altering the class I suggested will only change the box shadow, etc on the revslider so don't worry about figuring out if you'd like those elements to remain on other parts of your site.

Great, thank you!

 

Where do I find the file I am editing? is it style.less inside the rev folder? via ftp or is there something within the editor?

 

Normally the css is edited by editing the theme but obviously that takes me into the dms...

Hey Andy - If you're not using a child theme (which I don't believe you are) your CSS changes and additions would go into the Custom Code section in the DMS visual editor http://d.pr/i/CVtI.

That's right. The easiest way to identify the correct code that needs modification is to use the developer tools in Chrome or an extension like Firebug (see http://docs.pagelines.com/customize/overriding-default-css for a little bit explanation).

 

So for your original example, where you're looking to change the revslider text styling - when I inspect that element in developer tools in Chrome, I see http://d.pr/i/Moyn which shows me that  .revslider-container .slider-content h2 .slider-text is what is controlling that particular font styling. It's the background, the box-shadow and the font color that would need to be changed in order to achieve your look of just having a dark grey type. So this is what you'll want to put in your custom code area:

 

.revslider-container .slider-content h2 .slider-text {background: none; box-shadow: none; color: #333333;}

 

There's a lot more you can do with CSS of course! This is the best place to get going - http://www.w3schools.com/css/default.asp.

      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?
      Thanks
      Michael

      Hello,
       
      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

      Hello. 
      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.
       
      Cheers.

      Hi.
      I can't seem to get the Teamwork section to accept custom css. I am trying to change the padding from 7em to 1em on the splash part
      I have tried
        .pl-sn-teamwork .pl-tw-splash {
          padding-top: 1em;
          padding-bottom: 1em;
        }
       
      This works in chrome inspect but when added to custom css nothing happens.
      I have also tried most of the classes I can see accoiated with this section but again nothng seems to happen.
      Any ideas?
