DMS 2 Live Preview with Child Theme

Recommended Posts

bloom1creative

Hey

 

Does Live Preview work with a Child theme?  It's a real shame if it doesn't, I don't seem to be having much joy as I think it writes to the parent LESS file and not the child one?  Even if its just temporary so I can copy out to the child theme after the LESS is correct, that would be great.

 

Many thanks

Hi,

 

When you say Live Preview are you referring to the WordPress preview ?

No sorry perhaps I wasn't clear enough, the LESS preview through the DMS when you press cmd/cntrl + enter to see LESS changes.  This made my life 100 times easier, but since using a child theme I have been having to go back and fourth from the chrome inspector and save/empty cache/refresh which takes so much longer ha.  Thanks


Many thanks

What code are you using ?

As I have just added the following:

 

.masthead-title { color: red; }

 

Then previewed that code working correctly in both DMS 2.x and my child theme Skeleton, so if you provide the code you're using, we can take a closer look.

      Hi,
      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.
       
      Thanks

      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.
      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
      Michael
