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?

      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

      Hello - I'm a registered Pagelines user. I tried to load my website today (toolshed.biz) in the DMS editor and received a message that the page was having trouble loading. I rarely make changes to my website so this was unexpected. I followed your support suggestions and checked for javascript errors using Chrome - when trying to load the page, it showed the following
      jquery-migrate.min.js:2 JQMIGRATE: Migrate is installed, version 1.4.1

      I deactivated all my plug-ins prior to doing this except for:
      Pagelines Platform 5 v5.0.126
      Pagelines updater v. 1.2.9
      I'm not an expert coder or web developer, not really sure what this all means. Not sure what JQMIGRATE is (a plug-in? I don't see that in my plug-in list). Can you point me in the right direction?
      Thanks,
      Dick Huey
