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

      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.

      Good Evening/Afternoon or Morning, 
      I am running into a problem with CSS styling not applying inside of most browsers (Safari, Firefox) when I am logged in to wordpress, and all browsers that I have tested when I am logged off and the site has been made public (Chrome, Firefox and Safari).
      As a result, I have managed to identify the probable cause. It looks as though these browsers are refusing to render my sites compiled CSS file due to it being a HTTP URL rather than HTTPS.
      I have attempted to change this URL to HTTPS in my browser, however it brings back an ERROR: File not found page - https://www.shortfilmblog.com/wp-content/uploads/pagelines/compiled-css-core-1505847507.css
      What would you suggest in this regard? Would this be resolvable from your end?
      Happy to provide any further details required.

      I know this is not an easy problem. Maybe there is a easy solution.
      I have tryed to uses the existing solution, that I have found in the forum
      I changed the colours of my nav (simple nav) and the hover effect (a. hover).
      I really tryed to highlight the active/used link in the nav but I cant figure it out.
      I want it to be black when active.
      Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

      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?

      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
