Editing Type Style in RevSlider

Recommended Posts

novsun

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.

      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.

      I know this is not an easy problem. Maybe there is a easy solution.
      I have tryed to uses the existing solution, that I have found in the forum
      I changed the colours of my nav (simple nav) and the hover effect (a. hover).
      I really tryed to highlight the active/used link in the nav but I cant figure it out.
      I want it to be black when active.
      Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

      Hi Pagelines team and wider community,
      I am looking to develop a single post page for my blog. I have read over an old article on the subject, however the link provided on achieving this goal was giving me security warnings. Is there any way I can get round this?
      Secondly, I have had a root around the .zip file provided on my sites backup, however was unable to locate any file in there with the name of Single.php. Does this file exist in the Pagelines theme?
      By the way, this is the unsafe article: http://support.pagelines.me/docs/customization/create-a-custom-page-template/ (Click at your peril).

      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
