LESS/CSS not compiling correctly

Recommended Posts

carletto0282

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?

If you want to keep it secret the email it to the support desk, and they will look into it for you hello at pagelines dot com

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

      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 -

      Hello,
      Shouldn't the image PL5 component be using the srcset/picture css directives to pick the correct size for an image? or it does already and I don't know how to use it? Thank you for any advice or enlightenment.
