Textbox > Font size trouble

Recommended Posts


Hi guys,


Is not being able to edit the font size also a known bug?


See the footer on my website homepage: http://betercv.nl


Here you can see that the textbox on the bottom left corner has a logo and some text in it. Even though I've set the text size (in the text box) to 14px, it keeps staying on 22px.


I tried some css but I'm not so great in that.


What I did was:


Set the styling class of the textbox to: ".footertb"


And then I put the folowing line in to the editor:

.footertb {
  font-size: 14px;
But it didn't work. Any idea what I'm doing wrong and what I can do to fix it?

Hi there, I can see in the code that you've set the font size for the text in general but as the text is inside a <p> tag there's another rule which is applying to it, that's set at 20pt - http://screencast.com/t/XN3WkQ9Wf


I can't see that custom class in the code you've mentioned above, but if you've set that for the textbox then you can just add the p after the class.


.footertb p {
  font-size: 14px;
Otherwise you can use the id for that text box as it only appears once of the page.
#textboxu8raat p {
    font-size: 14px;

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.

Thank you so much. Adding the P did the trick.


And thanks for the tip on the textbox id. That way I don't have to set a class every time. I really need to learn more about css soon.

Thanks again.

      Hey all, hope I worded the topic correctly!
      I just need to know if either 1) I'm making a mistake or 2) this could be set as a new feature?
      Using the global settings typography parameters, I have a global paragraph font type (set using googlefonts) and have set the style to align:justify. When laying out <p> text inside a simple TEXT module, the <p> text adheres to both the font type and justification. Perfect.
      Now, when I set <p> text inside the PARAGRAPH TEXT field within an ELEMENT module, the <p> text adheres to the font type, but not the justification. It's rather annoying as I like to fully justify para text across the board and tend to use Element modules instead of text boxes for various reasons. It also seems silly that some PARAGRAPH TEXT fields adopt global settings, whilst other don't.
      Or I'm doing it wrong :S
      Any help or advice is much appreciated!

      I have a problem with the typography settings. I set the H1 class with "font-weight: 300;" (Very thin weight), and "font-size: 50px;" (To have considerable evidence of my problem). Unfortunately, as you can see on the screenshots, those setting don't have any incidence on the site, Infact in the home page editor there is a trial title called "Text test", bold, and 26 px approximatly sized.
      Why the typography settings are not transposed on the site? Where I wrong?

      Hi there,
      I'm a big fan of Pagelines, and have been for years.
      I'm trying to control the size of video embeds and having some difficulty. I see that I can just paste the Vimeo video URL into the post and an embed widget will automatically appear, which is great. But the embed box created is much taller that the video (689 x 1000 pixels) so the content sits in the middle of a tall black box, which looks awkward.
      I tried using the full iFrame embed code from Vimeo, which solved the disproportionate embed frame size (or aspect ratio) issue, but despite specifying the dimensions I want (690 x 388), the videos displayed on the post are sized at 300 x 150 pixels.
      I can't work out how to change either.
      I'm using the latest version of Pagelines Framework (Pro) with the Agency them.
      Any help or advice very much appreciated.
