Need Some CSS Guidance Please

Recommended Posts


Hello everyone

I am working on a site redesign which can be found here:  http://studio7080.com.  I need to make it look like the current site found here: http://www.mwhglobal.com.


I am current stuck with some alignment, margin, padding etc issues in the header.  If you look at the 2 sites you will see the menu item "International Sites" sitting right below the google search box on the current site (www.mwhglobal.com). But on my site redesign (www.studio7080.com), you can see the menu item "International Sites" sitting much further down.


I use Firebug in FF bug just can't get the CSS to make them the same.  I'm sure one of you CSS ninja's will see my issue straight away and point me in the right direction.


Thank you all in advance

Hi Eric


When using the editor in chrome or firebug if you scroll through the html you'll see the places where margins/paddings are applied as they're highlighted in blue/yellow/orange (colors depend on whether you're using chrome or firebug). Looking into the css for that div where the highlight was showing you'll be able to track down the css and make the edits in the browser to copy/paste back into the css panel.


For items which show .pl-section-pad you'll need to add the section class in front of that code, as that class is used multiple times inside the DMS layout. Adding the section class in front ensures that only the padding in the section pad inside that area is affected.


.section-ubermenu-megamenu-adapter .pl-section-pad {
    padding: 2px 0;


Please see a screencast I made to help here - http://screencast.com/t/tsotbxtBnb6u

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 am hoping to figure out how I can get my PageLines Full Nav to display layered in front of a sticky footer element on my website - 3keymedia.com
      I would like the Full Nav to overlay the entire screen when opening the menu as you will see when opening on a desktop the footer of nav content is cropped by the sticky footer.

      Hi everyone, since Instagram had allowed to publish in different ratio formats (instead of only square ratio) the grams stripe has different heights. Can you tell me if i can fix it easily with some CSS?

      Hi guys!
      I have noticed that my primary sidebar becomes intermittently invisible when browsing through various blog articles on michaelkummer.com/blog.
      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?

      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 -
