Feature request: Font options in DMS editor

Recommended Posts

I think it would be particularly handy if you could adjust the fonts (size, color, hover color, font face, line-height) in everything from the WP Content/Loop to the sliders, sidebars and nav bars from inside the DMS editor without manual CSS.

 

This was actually one of the features I was most surprised to find missing when I started using DMS.  Most premium Wordpress themes give you options like this, so it's particularly odd to find them missing from the module option sections throughout the DMS system.  

 

Pie-in-the-sky ideally I'd like to be able to adjust the height/width of things like navbars in a similar fashion, but I understand that that would be more difficult than adding font options, and I can definitely stick to manual CSS hacking for that in the foreseeable future anyways.

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.

I'd vote no on this one.  Writing the custom code for those areas is easy and it seems that just might complicate the sections and I'm not a developer but maybe the code.

The code would be as simple as the CSS it would just allow people to edit it more quickly and particularly help those who are less code-savvy out (one of the big draws of DMS' interface).

I suppose.  I just think having all those choices in each feature would complicate a fairly clean interface and a little CSS goes a long way in DMS.  It seems like it would be creating a lot of check boxes or drop downs in those areas.  With DMS2 I think there is a good combination of choices not to the point where they are a burden, clean design and being able to add custom or inline CSS is great.  I get what you are saying but I personally don't want the sections/components having too many options.  

 

Although DMS is good for the less code-savvy it's a fantastic tool for Designers with some code knowledge and Devs that can really expand on its base.  

 

Although maybe this is a feature that could be added with a check box in Pro Tools to turn it off if you don't want it.

It wouldn't need to even be in the main options for the sections, it could have its own tab somewhere too.

This has come up a lot actually. However, we had a large number of options just for colors i.e. link color, hover state color, active state color and so forth in Platform Pro. The general feedback from this was that users were for the most part completely confused as to what they did and how to use them.

Therefore, when developing PageLines Framework we made the decision to not overly complicate the product with so many options, as it leads to confusing the users and a bloated product. In my honest opinion, although something like this sounds good in theory, in practice its not. For a simple Wordpress theme, then I can see the benefit, but for something as robust as DMS, taking into consideration all the sections and options currently available per section, implementing something like you suggest would bloat the product and without a shadow of a doubt, confuse the majority of users.

 

However, that said, we are always looking for cool ideas and with Martin moving your topic to the ideas and feedback forum, our developers will have likely seen your topic.

      Hi 
      I have a map here http://www.iloveoffset.com/maps/
      I want to add several pointer locations to the map, but when I do they do not appear.
      On this map there are 2 pointer locations and as you can there is only one visible.
      Earlier today I added 7 and could only see 4 so there is something odd going on.
      My theme is up to date

      I've been having trouble unlocking the template section for past couple of weeks. When I try clicking nothing happens.

      Akismet
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      WooCommerce
      It was working fine before i have no idea what's going on with it.

      My DMS 2 site http://www.heart-stone.com/ will not save any new custom css... I can still edit templates and publish those but any custom css that I enter never saves.
      All WP files, themes, and plugins are up to date. 
      Any thought about what might be causing this?

      Is there a way to edit the custom CSS via FTP? I know I can edit the custom code in the Chrome editor but is there a file path I can use to find and edit the CSS directly from our FTP?
      Thanks in advance for the help!
