DMS2 CSS for pagelines divs?

Recommended Posts


Hi, have started using DMS2 this last week .. very cool


I'm using the pl-nextbox plugin from the pagelines site to add in php to activate a menu plugin I am using, 'Main Mega Menu' for wordrpess


I have made the menu sticky and put it in the header section with a dms drag and drop block/element


All works ok except now there is a big whitespace gap at the top of each page, approx 130px


When I add the pl-nextbox drag and dorp element in, it creates a blank space at the top of the page even though the menu displays above it


So I used css to position the #page-main div upwards by 140px and added some blank content rows using the 'Visual Composer' for wordpress plugin so the Title of pages was not quite so close to the menu/header in pages


But of course now I have noticed problems with changing the width of the page template/elements when you enable the layout view in dms and some buttons at the top of the page do not respond properly because they are overlapped by another div


For example ..




On this page you can only hover the mouse over the very bottom of the buttons to click / select them because the div overlapping it. I know I could fix this by adding txt above the area like I have on this site with the same issue if it's useful




Also if you read individual posts it chops the title etc off the top



Any advice greatly appreciated on this ..


Can I just set an overlap in the css so that the page div sits on top of the pl-nextbox element or will that mess up the sticky function of the menu and if so what?


Or do I need to be clever with css to minimise the containing bit for the pl-nextbox causing the issue


Kind thanks

      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.

      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.
      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?

      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 -
