Hi Simon

 

The issue we have is that a css file is not being generated so its not being cached.

 

Is there a way to use a static css file?

it WILL use a static file, if it can. If the file permissions are right etc.

So can you tell me what folders and what files and what permissions?
 
I cannot seem to get this to work despite having looked at all the threads on the forum

your wp-content/uploads folder.

Hi

 

That folder is fully writable - it seems that the css file is not being written to it

 

Does a specific user need to own the folder? At the moment Daemon owns it

Well thats the issue then, unless your username is Daemon of course, anything is possible.

 

add to your child theme functions.php

 

add_filter( 'render_css_posix_', '__return_true' );

Hi

 

We are using the base theme not a child theme.

 

Is there a work around - we are looking to launch tomorrow and this has just come up as an issue.

 

 

is there any where else I can add the filter?

Sorry to be a pain but could you tell me which folder and file this filter needs to be added to?

you said you have the base child theme, add to the functions.php in that folder.

that would be wp-content/themes/pagelines/functions.php?

 

Sorry I'm not a developer

and everything has been working well except this.

Hi there, no thats thats the core file.

 

You'll need to install the base theme (which is like a blank child theme) and make that the active theme. You can download the base theme from here - https://github.com/bearded-avenger/nicks-base-theme

 

Then place that filter Simon provided within the functions.php of the base theme.


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.

Will this team work with Pagelines Framework? - it looks like its for DMS?

 

Should I install the Pagelines Base Theme (Starter Theme)?

 

Will I lose anything by activating either?

Will I lose my custom code or pageline settings by activating?

 

Can I switch back to the core theme without losing anything?

As long as you have not edited any files... no you wont lose any settings.

 

Wordpress however DOES store a couple of settings on a theme basis, widgets and menus, so you might have to move them back.

      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.
