CSS Handling

Recommended Posts

Hi Iam a newbie to DMS.

Everything is fine except the handling of CSS (Colors) that must write CSS code for every element in every section (Maybe I'am wrong).

I think that the handling must be visual just like anything else...

That is the purpose - I think - for the DMS project!

Any suggestion please?

HI,

 

I apologise but I am not entirely sure what it is you're suggesting. Can you go into greater detail please.

The way for example to change the Header's Area background color.

How can I select a color that I like?

I can select a background image but I can not selecting my prefer color!

I can set it only via Custom LESS/CSS with CSS code. Am I right?

Yes you would use your own Custom CSS to override the default styling of the sections if you desired style is beyond the scope of the available options. 


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.

Ok that's why I'am suggesting you the selection to be with "click and point" mode like other frameworks and

not with CSS code. This project advertised that everything can be done with "Zero" 0 coding ...

Unfortunately to change a color you must know CSS coding!!!

Hi there, there's options to choose a 'area theme' which assigns a contrast color based on the site background color and some other options, but nothing to select a set color. This has been done on purpose to make site design as easy as possible by restricting the amount of options/fields you have to fill in per section, so selecting the options 'contrast color' from the area theme drop down will pick a color for you using less based on the color you selected for the background.

 

I agree though its a good idea to add an additional option for the color field, feel free to suggest this as an enhancement on the tracker - https://github.com/pagelines/DMS/issues


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.

This has come up quite a few times, the problem is that we had similar color pickers in our old theme PlatformPro. When developer PageLines Framework, we went through all user feedback and generally, users found all these color pickers confusing. That is why we removed them in PageLines Framework and didn't include such option(s) in DMS.

 

Basically, it would mean adding a color picker to all other options minus image uploaders. This would mean for example, the Masthead section, there would be a color picker for the Title field, another for the sub title field and so forth.

 

Ideally, this is something that a third party store developer should probably build, that way only users who want this functionality will install it and not become confused with all the added options.

Ok suppose that t I'am agree with you...

What happened when someone does not know CSS code?

Why in the first page of pagelines.com advertised that DMS

is a Zero coding platform?

And finally is this platform for a designer or for a developer?

You can adding a check box in DMS General Settings if 

someone want this functionality or not...

If a third party solution appearing in the store then the advertisement

of Zero coding it will be a lie !!!
