Customize PageHeader, CanvasArea and Images

Recommended Posts



I'm wondering if there is a simple way to customize all PageHeaders, CanvasAreas and Images in my website changing only the CSS.



  • Set a background image and reduce the height.



  • Change de background color and reduce the height.



  • Put a yellow border in them.

Please follow the forum policy of only have one question per topic in the future.


1. You can set a background using the background image option. Why do you want to reduce it's height ?


2. This can be achieved using the background color option.


3. You will need to use custom CSS. I recommend adding a class to your images, such as yellow-border then use the following CSS.


.yellow-border { border: 1px solid yellow; }


Your HTML would look something like this:


<img class="yellow-border" src="">

Sure, I will do that next time.

The problem is that I already have created all pages. I want change the CSS to all elements instead have to change them in every single page.

If you could tell me the name of the elements, I will try to change them in the CSS to define a background-image, a background-color and the Height (is too tall, occupies a big percentage of the page).

You can use Firebug or your browsers inspection tools to pinpoint the classes you need to add your CSS to. 

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.

      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 -

      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.

      Hi, I have a few pages with individual "page-headers" for each.  For each page they also have at the bottom the blog mosaic and or a column. I have the irrelevant page-headers for other pages hidden so they do not appear where they are not supposed to. It works fine at first glance, however, when I click on the bottom section blog/mosaic or column, it displays all of other (irrelevant) page-headers. How do I fix it?
