Complied CSS Publishing Issues

Recommended Posts

experticity

Every time I publish a page on my site the "compiled-css-1383069739.css" get a 404 for a period of time (varies) and then after a while eventually works.  I'm unsure why this is happening but I can't have a broken looking site every time I publish. 

 

I don't see any information about this in your docs. 

 

I'm currently building my site right now at www.experticity.com. You won't see the new stuff unless you add this (66.175.213.137  www.experticity.com) to your host file.

 

I'm using the base theme customization. 

 

I thought I might be able to work around it by not using styles.less and just use styles.css but the problem seems to still be happening. 

 

Thoughts?

Looks like wp engine?

 

They have a staging area, and also very aggressive caching on the production site. You are using production to develop.

 

The staging area has no caching at all, thats why you should be using it for developing.

Thank you for letting us know :) 


The answer to many issues can be found by searching in the forum before posting as someone else  may very well have had the same problem before you have.  Also, reading the documentation can help you gain a good understanding of how everything works.

This issue still seems to be providing an issue for me.  Although I can work around it in staging its not an ideal workflow for a team to use to make updates to the site. 

 

After extensive discussion with my host it appears that the DMS removes the old css file when it compiles the new one causing the issue of my site looking broken when I publish a page from the DMS. 

 

WP Engine has done something on their end for www.experticity.com to work for the time being but as I try to set up separate themes for our other sites I'm running into the same issue. I don't want to have to call WP Engine every time I set up a new site to disable something on their end to get it to work.  Is there something I can do within the DMS that will solve this issue?

 

I've set up sites for:

66.175.213.137  www.3point5.com   
66.175.213.137  www.promotive.com 
 
Please let me know. Thanks.

Updated other thread.


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, 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.

      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.

      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
