Hi guys,

 

I'm creating a brand new site for a client and I'm using DMS.

I've updated the theme to the last version 2.0.1 but while I'm working on it I've noticed a strange thing:

 

the site displays diffently when I'm logged in an when I'm not.

 

Searching through with chrome dev tools I've noticed that when I'm logged out the site il loading the file

 

compiled-css-core-1396458836.css

 

but when I'm logged in the style are set in

 

http://mysite.com/?pagedraft=1

 

I have tried to flush caches and even empty chrome cache but it doesn't work.

Do you have any suggestion?

 

Thanks in advance

Best regards

Carlo

Yea thats exactly whats its sypposed to do. the daft css is for just when the editor is active. When you are logged out you see the public changes and the proper css files.

Ok I understand it's working right but there's still somenthing not good.

 

Actually I set "Asap" as heading font and "Open Sans" as body font.

Once set those options I click the "Publish" button and reload.

 

While I'm logged in everything is ok just as I set up.

I if I log out and refresh I get body text displayed with "Asap" font. 

Check tha css and it says the font-family is set in the body rule... login back and boom: the body rule set the font-family to "Open sans" font...

 

What I have to do to update the compiled css?!

The hidden support url in your profile is does not seem to be DMS, can you provide the moderators a url

Unfortunately I think this issue is caused by the child theme since when I switch to DMS everything works fine.

 

There is something I have to add to my functions.php or to my style.css?

 

Since it's a client site I prefer not to post the url. May I send it to you with a pm?

Or you could add it to the private site field in your profile, as only the support team can see that, and that is what its for.

Hi there, who are you hosted with? It could be that your host has some form of additional caching.

 

Try using the alternate css urls method in site settings > advanced to see if this helps - http://screencast.com/t/jTmDbL1y


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 hosted with Thirdeye Consulting (http://www.thirdeye.it/) but I think if it was an hosting related issue it should behave the same way - and report the same issue - even with the DMS without child theme.

Am I right?

 

I'll try with alternative css urls.

Thanks

No way.

 

I try to empty my child theme less file since I use some variables like @baseFontFamily to retrieve the font as set in the theme settings but it still doesn't work.

 

I think it's something related to the extended google font feature because if now I change the font family while I log out I still not able to see those changes.

 

Is there someone to send admin credentials?

Thanks

      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

      Hello,
       
      I'm basically a designer and understand a little on how to change CSS, etc., so please excuse my ignorance...  I recently upgraded to the newest platform from the DMS and my old DMS theme no longer functions.  I'm trying to replace the image slider that my Horizon Photography Theme (Nick Haskins) had created.  The Impulse image slider seemed the closest to what I need, but there are problems.
      It seems the the Impulse section for sliding images defaults to the image width, no the height.  I can change the Impulse stage height and width, but this does nothing to the internal content.  For instance, if I change the height to 200 pixels, the image remains the full width and only shows a cropped section.  I would like the ability to change the Impulse height, and have the image height fit space. 
      I've put this custom CSS in, but again, this only controls the stage height of Impulse:
      .pl-sn-impulse .pl-impulse-cell .cell-wrap, .pl-impulse-container, .owl-stage-outer {
        width: 100%;
      }
       
      Any suggestions welcome.  Thanks

      Hello. 
      I have just realized that CSS (Less plugin) , is not working..... I have disable all plugins (except PL CUSTOM LESS and PL5) , and ... it's not working ... 
      It's not the first time. Usually I had trouble with a plugin name Autoptimize , but it's Desactivate now , all memory have been purge, and it's still not working! :-/ So it's not from this plugin. 
      NB : When I am logged on my website, if i go on the black wordpress dashboard bar, go on the PL icon, clic on </> LESS/CSS => then the page suddenly apply the CSS .... But As soon that i reload the page, nothing. I think the problem is that the plugin LESS/CSS does not load properly (if I can say that with my simples words).
      I order to keep the site "good looking" I have temporally copy/paste all my LESS code in a plugin : Script n Styles that apply the LESS/CSS code... but it's not a solution for long time.
      Can someone help me ? Did I do something wrong ? Is it an update ?

      Feel free to delete this post if its not helpful or its just plain wrong.
       
      I though it might be useful to share how I customize the size of the builder. (reduce my eyestrain )
      1 - install stylerbot extension in chrome (stylerbot keeps this css every time you access the url)
       
      2- add this css to stylerbot for the site you are working on
      .CodeMirror {
          font-size: 14px;
          height: 600px;
      }
      .pl-workarea.pl-has-sidebar .pl-workarea-sidebar-container {
          right: 0px;
          width: 500px;
      }
      .pl-workarea.pl-has-sidebar .iframe-container {
          right: 500px ;
      }
       
      change sizes to suit.
       
      Cheers.

      Hi.
      I can't seem to get the Teamwork section to accept custom css. I am trying to change the padding from 7em to 1em on the splash part
      I have tried
        .pl-sn-teamwork .pl-tw-splash {
          padding-top: 1em;
          padding-bottom: 1em;
        }
       
      This works in chrome inspect but when added to custom css nothing happens.
      I have also tried most of the classes I can see accoiated with this section but again nothng seems to happen.
      Any ideas?
