Today, my custom CSS is not holding upon refresh. Flushed Cache. Checked topics here on forum...and found no answers.

 

Here is the css that I need to apply: Shows upon save.. and disappears.

_____________________________

.pl-content {
background: rgba(250, 250, 250, 0.8);
}
#header .pl-content {
background: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0);
}
#navbar .pl-content {
background: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0);
}
#footer .pl-content {
background: rgba(250, 250, 250, 0.8);
}

 

____________

Suggestions welcomed.

 

 

Thanks.

HI alisamski

 

If you could create an admin level account for your site and send the credentials to hello @ pagelines dot com - along with a link to this forum topic in the email i will jump on and take a look for you. 


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.

Hi there 

The CSS you entered is still there on your site in the Custom CSS area http://d.pr/i/L6FG - however - it doesn't look as though you have pressed save. Are you making sure the light is green on the DMS visual editor before you refresh . 

 

You may have to click out of the CSS area and then click back into this area again to make sure the entries you made take effect. This is a known bug for the moment that will hopefully be resolved in the next iteration of DMS.

 

i made sure the light was green and changes to Custom CSS stuck this time

I've saved in every configuration possible... and the custom css is still not working... or at least I'm not seeing it..

 

if you go to the inside pages.. not the fron tpage... each area has a transparent white behind the content..

this only shows when your are logged in and accessing the visual editor. it is not present otherwise - i.e. not present to non-admin visitors

 

does this make sense?

No I do not mean  activating the area...

so the css does not work

the css saves and then it does not hold. So the content area has a transparent white background around it.

Hi there,

 

Ok something is definitely off there. Logged into your site to test, no css seemed to be sticking at all, so in testing removed all your css and tried a basic change, didn't take affect still showed all the stuff I'd just removed. Kept on going, a little while later, change took affect. Set back with original css and again nothing took. This leads me to think that the host could be caching? I'd check with them to see if they cache any files their end.

 

For the time being, as the original css wouldn't go back in (leaving your site unstyled) I have added the code in to the base themes style.css which override whats in the css editor. So now it's showing.

 

I will speak to our developer to see what could be causing this, but I'd def say check with the host as well in the interim.

Just to update we've had another case where something similar is happening and they are also on godaddy, so be interesting to see what they say. If we hear back on the other case I'll post the comments in this thread too. Core team are aware.

Waiting to hear what type of servers they have this on... if we have to go to GoDaddy for a client, we usually get at least a Deluxe Host Acct. Linux  with CPanel..

This client has a very old website on these servers... so we'll see and will post..

 

Thanks

To confirm, I've had this problem to. Using the LESS Save Button on the front end of the Pagelines Interface made it stick, but that sort of negates the point of having the custom box in the DMS editor.

The Css/Less fallback in the Pagelines tab in the wp admin area is a fix for if the dms editor isn't working correctly. When saving your code in the css/less panel in the editor, make sure you click elsewhere in the panel to see the saving icon spin in the top right hand corner of the editor, once it's finished saving, publish and check if the css has saved. If it hasn't and the panel is clear but saving in the fall back area, it could be a plugin conflict (the dms editor is jquery based so some plugins can break it) try disabling the plugins on your site and reattempting the css changes to see if this is the cause.

OK, as James mentioned above, there is currently an issue in 1.4 where some users encounter an error in saving there changes, this related to custom CSS/LESS, settings and section setting changes.

 

The issue has been fixed in an upcoming patch, in the meantime, what you can do is this:

 

1. When you add custom CSS/LESS or make a change to a setting.

2. Before clicking the publish button, do the following:

A ) For CSS/LESS, move your mouse cursor to outside of the DMS editor and then click.

B ) For Settings and Section Settings, move your mouse cursor to a different option field and click inside of it.

3. This should now trigger the Saving Progression, which you can confirm by looking next to the Publish button.

4. *Once this Saving has completed, click publish and your settings and custom CSS/LESS should now take effect.

 

* If your custom CSS/LESS doesn't take effect after this, then you either have one of the following issues.

 

1. Your custom CSS isn't correct i.e. is either invalid or isn't targeting the element correctly.

2. You have a cache or other plugin causing a conflict.

3. Your host is using a cache system which is preventing your CSS/LESS to take effect.

      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?
