Browser Detection jQuery method adding classes to HTML tag, not Body

Recommended Posts


Hi. I saw the added jQuery choice for adding Body classes. It's ideal for me on WPEngine, except it's adding the classes to the HTML tag, not Body. I see it by using the Inspect Element tools, not View Source.


Also note that it doesn't seem to be adding the Device class. For example, Firefox on my PC displays added classes to the HTML tag of "win firefox firefox2 gecko gecko2", but doesn't add "desktop".


Consequently, some stuff isn't displaying quite right in IE8. Does all conditional CSS need to be re-written for this change to using the HTML tag? I'm a bit loathe to change the JS file in a plug-in.

DMS 2.0.4

Pro Tools 1.5.4


Thanks for any insights and tips how to better use this new feature.

Yea, the js plugin adds it to the html tag, same thing, still works ;)


No it does not check for devices, would need a lot more logic added to do that, its very basic at the moment.

Got it. I'd thought that the Device-type class was being used by DMS.


Thanks, Simon.

      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. 
      I've deleted my custom css and removed plugins. Im down to having only the following plugins:
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      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!
