Inline CSS in Canvas

Recommended Posts

I've added the following inline css:

 

background-image: -webkit-linear-gradient(to right, rgba(12, 12, 12, 0.9), rgba(80, 80, 80, 0.6));   background-image: -webkit-linear-gradient(to right, rgba(12, 12, 12, 0.9), rgba(80, 80, 80, 0.6));   background-image: -moz-linear-gradient(to right, rgba(12, 12, 12, 0.9), rgba(80, 80, 80, 0.6));   background-image: -o-linear-gradient(to right, rgba(12, 12, 12, 0.9), rgba(80, 80, 80, 0.6));   background-image: linear-gradient(to right, rgba(12, 12, 12, 0.9), rgba(80, 80, 80, 0.6));

 

...to a canvas section here:

 

http://list.abodo.com.php53-12.ord1-1.websitetestlink.com/

 

The canvas contains a background image and this css is supposed to add a transparent gradient over the image. But instead the canvas section is entirely black.

 

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Here's what the code should be doing: http://codepen.io/anon/pen/vbzBK

Hello @mtaus 

Rather than add all this inline, (inline style should be used sparingly) 

 

Try this: 

 

In your custom styling Class field in your Canvas section add a unique class, for example mtausbox

 

In your Custom field add the styling class and then the CSS

.mtausbox { YOUR STYLE HERE}

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.

Martin Davies thanks for the suggestion.... I've added the canvas-gradient class to the canvas section and the following css to the custom section: 

 

.canvas-gradient {background-image: -webkit-linear-gradient(to right, rgba(12, 12, 12, 0.9), rgba(80, 80, 80, 0.6)); background-image: -webkit-linear-gradient(to right, rgba(12, 12, 12, 0.9), rgba(80, 80, 80, 0.6));   background-image: -moz-linear-gradient(to right, rgba(12, 12, 12, 0.9), rgba(80, 80, 80, 0.6));   background-image: -o-linear-gradient(to right, rgba(12, 12, 12, 0.9), rgba(80, 80, 80, 0.6)); background-image: linear-gradient(to right, rgba(12, 12, 12, 0.9), rgba(80, 80, 80, 0.6));}
 
Now the image is appearing but the gradient is not.

Did you remove the inline style?

mtaus Not sure this helps, but I tested both the CSS above and with your div id="box" and CSS from CodePen. Latter works fine in PLNextBox (content and Full Width) , textbox and MediaBox. AS a Custom Styling Class works fine, with the exception of adding a background image and using with a Canvas section. Appears momentarily and then disappears

Now the image is appearing but the gradient is not.
 

 

 

 

Try 

 

.canvas-gradient {
background-image: url(IMAGE_URL); /* this is the fallback in case browser does not support gradients below*/
background-image: url(IMAGE_URL), background-image: -webkit-linear-gradient(to right, rgba(12, 12, 12, 0.9), rgba(80, 80, 80, 0.6));
background-image: url(IMAGE_URL), background-image: -webkit-linear-gradient(to right, rgba(12, 12, 12, 0.9), rgba(80, 80, 80, 0.6));  
background-image: url(IMAGE_URL), background-image: -moz-linear-gradient(to right, rgba(12, 12, 12, 0.9), rgba(80, 80, 80, 0.6));  
background-image: url(IMAGE_URL), background-image: -o-linear-gradient(to right, rgba(12, 12, 12, 0.9), rgba(80, 80, 80, 0.6));
background-image: url(IMAGE_URL), background-image: linear-gradient(to right, rgba(12, 12, 12, 0.9), rgba(80, 80, 80, 0.6));
}

Martin Davies that did not work either... when I remove the background image, I can see the gradient. But it seems that the image is overlaying the gradient.

Do not use inline styling for complex CSS like that, inline styling shouldn't really be used. I have this working and all I did was add the following to the Canvas section style classes field.

 

grad-bg

 

Then I go to my custom CSS and add the following:

 

.grad-bg {

background-image: -webkit-linear-gradient(to right, rgba(12, 12, 12, 0.9), rgba(80, 80, 80, 0.6)), url("http://list.abodo.com.php53-12.ord1-1.websitetestlink.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/marketing-hero-background.jpg");
  background-image: -webkit-linear-gradient(to right, rgba(12, 12, 12, 0.9), rgba(80, 80, 80, 0.6)), url("http://list.abodo.com.php53-12.ord1-1.websitetestlink.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/marketing-hero-background.jpg");
  background-image: -moz-linear-gradient(to right, rgba(12, 12, 12, 0.9), rgba(80, 80, 80, 0.6)), url("http://list.abodo.com.php53-12.ord1-1.websitetestlink.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/marketing-hero-background.jpg");
  background-image: -o-linear-gradient(to right, rgba(12, 12, 12, 0.9), rgba(80, 80, 80, 0.6)), url("http://list.abodo.com.php53-12.ord1-1.websitetestlink.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/marketing-hero-background.jpg");
  background-image: linear-gradient(to right, rgba(12, 12, 12, 0.9), rgba(80, 80, 80, 0.6)), url("http://list.abodo.com.php53-12.ord1-1.websitetestlink.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/marketing-hero-background.jpg");
}
 
That worked for me - https://cloudup.com/c26-s3maFak

Danny thanks for this... but it's still not working. I've added the class to the background canvas section and the custom code you provided, but no gradient appears. Did you add a z-axis element? Am I missing something else?

mtaus Danny's code works exactly as you wish it to. 

 

Saying that. I think site image looks better without, (on your site)

mtaus - Not sure why its not working for you, the steps I mentioned above are the only steps I taken to have that code working, no other code was needed or required.

 

If this isn't working then you will likely have a plugin or maybe other CSS causing an issue.

      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?
