Exclude one category from CSS changes & Add secondary navigation to category

Recommended Posts

Goal: I would like to add a category for “Press Releases” so my press releases can be posts in their own category, but this category will be formatted differently than the other existing categories.

 

What I have...

I have my current categories acting as "Service Areas" and our agency's Programs are posts under the Service Area categories. These Service Area categories are formatted to have an image and description at the top and to show the entire content of each Program (post).

 

What I want...

I want my Press Releases category to have a secondary navigation bar and show a set number or preview characters from the Press Release (post), along with the post date.

 

THE BREAKDOWN...

 

1. I would like my post date to show in the Press Releases category (and posts), but not my service area categories (and posts).

Service area category -> http://highlandscsb....ory/outpatient/

I just don’t know how to adapt the CSS to exclude one category.

 

2. I would like the content box section to be hidden in the Press Releases category.

What do I need to put in the CSS so that the "content box" section is shown in all categories EXCEPT the Press Releases category?

 

3. I would like my Press Releases category to have a secondary navigation just like the other pages in my Newsroom. Is this possible?

Current Press Releases page with secondary nav -> http://highlandscsb.org/pressreleases/

What do I need to put in the CSS so that the "simple nav" and "banners" sections are visible in the Press Releases category and hidden in the others?

 

 

Please advise if this is possible. Will email moderator if necessary.

I'm sorry...this is a CMS Pagelines Framework topic, not a DMS topic. Can you direct me to someone who can help?

Hi there,

 

I've adjusted the category for you so this relates to Framework and not DMS. Unfortuantely we can't provide the direct css code to achieve this as that's classed as designing the site which outside of out support spectrum. 

 

However, you can achieve each of the above using css, depending on your setup.

 

1. I would like my post date to show in the Press Releases category (and posts), but not my service area categories (and posts).

You can add the date/meta to both pages in the PageLines>site options>blogs and posts and then use css to hide on the page where it's not required using page specific css.

 

For example something like .my category .post-meta .metabar {display:none;}

 

2. I would like the content box section to be hidden in the Press Releases category.

What do I need to put in the CSS so that the "content box" section is shown in all categories EXCEPT the Press Releases category?

 

.category-name .content-box {display:none;}

 

3. I would like my Press Releases category to have a secondary navigation just like the other pages in my Newsroom. Is this possible?

Current Press Releases page with secondary nav -> http://highlandscsb.org/pressreleases/

What do I need to put in the CSS so that the "simple nav" and "banners" sections are visible in the Press Releases category and hidden in the others?

 

.page-id-xxxx .secondnav {display:none;}  replacing the page id with the id from your site.

 

Hope this helps


Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

      Hello,
      We are working on a 2 languages site (https://liguecardioliga.be) with wpml, and lately the call of a category in the loops section (and all the sections requiring a category to select posts) doesn't work in the translated language. It worked well until recently so I wonder if it's because of a recent update (wordpress, wpml, pagelines, a plugin?). Anyone has the same problem? a solution?
      TIA

      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.
