Custom CSS not working unexpectedly

Recommended Posts

mogulskier9

Hello,

 

The Custom CSS for our site, 59secondpitch.com was working no problem and then it isn't picking it up anymore for some reason.  I tried deactivating all plugins, clearing the custom CSS in the editor and the fallback (saving,publishing,refreshing inbetween) and reloading, and still no luck.  

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks!

 

Matt

Hi Matt

 

Looking in the source code for your site it's showing that there isn't any css in the css/LESS box. Is that where you add your css? Have you checked to see if you can add it in the fallback area in the wp admin > PageLines > css/LESS fallback? Check your code to make sure there isn't any errors, one error can sometimes stop the code from being read.


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.

I'm having the same issue as well and I have checked to see if the code is under Pagelinges - DMS Fallback and it is there. Not sure what has happened but my site does not look the way it should without the CSS. My site is located at http://thebrasseffect.com

 

Thanks in advance for any help on this matter.

Hey James,

 

Yes it is in the fallback area as well.  It worked fine before and didn't make any changes to the code, so I'm not seeing any bugs that would affect it.  Can you take a look and advise?

 

Thanks,

 

Matt

Hi Matt

 

Just checked again in the source code and nothings showing... whats the code in the css box?

 

If you want me to take a look inside the site please email hello @ pagelines.com with a link to this forum thread so we can tie the two together and an admin level login :-)

Hello Matt 

 

If you copy your CSS and paste into the validator here http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/ using the direct input tab you will see a number of errors. once you correct these your CSS  should work again. 

 

the validator returned 15 errors - i have pasted them for you here http://forum.pagelines.com/pst/p/5-wnqxkk/

Not sure exactly what happened to my site but I removed one bit of css (wasn't really using it) and removed a space here and there and sites backup to looking a winner again :D

:phew:

If thats the case, it could well be that the code you used had an error, which was preventing the CSS below it from loading. Removing it resolved your issue.

Hi @matt 

 

Did the errors turn out to be the problem?

      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.
