Changes to CSS custom style sheet not showing on site

Recommended Posts

Hello,
 
I am using a custom stylesheet for my pagelines (framework) child theme. Some changes take effect immediately, and some never do. Why is this happening. Is there something overriding my css? Shouldn't the css in the custom sheet override everything else?
 
For example, I am trying to restyle the hero box on this page. Via firebug I found the code and the changes worked within firebug. When I add it to my stylesheet, the changes don't appear. I've cleared my cache, tried it in other browsers, etc, to no effect.
 
When I go back and look at firebug, I see that the style is duplicated: the first is I suppose my style, but it comes in empty between the brackets. Then it repeats the original style in full (see attached screenshot).
 
This is the code I want to substitute:
 

.pl-hero-wrap .pl-hero h1 {
    color: #1F2B7B;
    font-size: 24px;
    letter-spacing: -1px;
    line-height: 1;
}

.pl-hero-wrap .pl-hero p {
    color: #555555;
    font-size: 16px;
    font-weight: 200;
    line-height: 1.5em;
    margin: 5.25px 0 21px;
}

.pl-hero-wrap {
    -moz-box-sizing: border-box;
    background-color: #F5F5F5;
    border: 1px solid #FFFFFF;
    border-radius: 0px;
    box-shadow: 0 0 6px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.2) inset;
    padding: 5%;
}

This has happened several times, randomly, so can't find a consistent pattern to troubleshoot. Any direction would be appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Antonella

Hello,

 

I tried using both #page and #site, but it's still not working. Now it's giving me an empty value with the override. For example:

#site .pl-hero-wrap .pl-hero h1 {
}
.pl-hero-wrap .pl-hero h1 {
    color: #10163E;
    font-size: 60px;
    letter-spacing: -1px;
    line-height: 1;
}

Am I doing the override correctly?

I have just looked at your stylesheet and you have the following:

This means you have something causing that format, you will need to correct it. Then your CSS will load correctly.

      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

      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?
