Margin being added to div in the textbox

Recommended Posts

dgsarnow

I need to be able to change the margin-bottom setting .pl-section-pad for a textbox inside a two-column section.

 

I created a custom class for the column named "callus".

 

In the custom CSS area I created the following:

 

.callus div.pl-section-pad {margin-bottom: 0; padding:0;}

 

When I inspect the section using Chrome, I still have margin-bottom:1em and padding:8px.

 

I do not want to have .pl-section-pad changed globally just for the one area.

 

You can see the site at http://harqen-david.pagelines.net/

 

Thanks,

 

Dave

It looks like this is being overwritten by this line from the Pagelines core css. Any idea how to override this for just this section?

 

body .pl-area .pl-section .pl-section > .pl-section-pad

Hi Dave,

 

If you're referring to the red bar at the top of your site, you seem to have resolved your issue. However, you shouldn't use the !important declaration as it is bad practice and can potentially cause issues in the future with other css you may add.

 

So what you will want to do is add a custom class like you have added to the textbox. So remove the callus class from the canvas and add it to the textbox itself. Then use some CSS like this:

 

#site .callus .pl-section-pad {
  margin-bottom: 0;
  padding: 0;
}

Please search our forums, before posting!

Danny,

 

Thanks so much! Can you tell me when I should use the !important and when I should not? I am also unclear where to put the cutsom class. Should I always put it at the item itself or the canvas container?

 

Thank you again!

The only time you should use it is if something has inline styling or you can't override a default style. In regards to the custom class, add it to both your textbox sections styling classes field.

      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 -

      Hello,
      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?
      Thanks
      Michael
