Custom CSS no longer working

Recommended Posts

kristarobyn

Hey guys,

 

My client informed me that her website's color theme has magically disappeared. The last time I looked at the site was two weeks ago and it was working fine. I am unaware of when the issue actually happened.

 

Website URL:http://thetherapeuticfoodie.com
Framework Version: I'm using DMS latest and WordPress latest with Sophistique theme.

Plugins in Use:All In One SEO PackAkismetBackUpWordPressContact FormDMS Professional ToolsFacebook Share StatisticsGoogle XML SitemapsJetpack by WordPress.comJetpack Popular Posts

Multiple SidebarsPageLines Updater

Pagelines CustomizeStop Spammer Registrations Plugin
Server/Host: 123ehost.com
 

All of the custom css is no longer controlling the color scheme. The background is a transparent green and there are many more customizations that were made. I tried throwing the CSS into the CSS LESS in the Sophistique theme and disabling all plugins. None of those worked.

Hi,

 

I have viewed your site and I am unable to see any issue, your CSS is loading as far as I can tell.

Is this now resolved ?

 

Also, you may wish to look into changing your hosting, as you're currently using cheap web hosting called shared hosting. There are currently over 200 websites on the same server as your website and this isn't an ideal environment for websites running a dynamic CMS such as WordPress - https://cloudup.com/cFaQDI9B7Xo

Nope. That is not how the site should appear at all. There is a color scheme that is not appearing. The site was untouched before all of this happened. I am seeing this error message on the WP dash: 

 

DMS Less System encountered an error
/* LESS PARSE ERROR in your Custom CSS: parse error: unclosed block */

 

I've attached a screenshot below to show what is now happening when I log into DMS to edit. The editor does not show and the site is stripped of code.

 

I've been using 123ehost since 1999 and have hosted many sites with  no issues. My client asked for a very inexpensive host and this is what they wanted. They've always had nice customer service. I dunno.

I just looked at my other 123ehost , DMS website and it doesn't look right either. I was hoping it was my browser? - kristadior.com

 

I just emailed 123host, who is very responsive, so hopefully they'll have an answer.

123ehost says that both of my sites are on different servers and he doesn't see any problems. Let's continue to see what is happening to both of my sites. Thank you!

When you see this error:

 

DMS Less System encountered an error
/* LESS PARSE ERROR in your Custom CSS: parse error: unclosed block */

 

It means that you have an error in your CSS, which is causing a parse error. Therefore, to resolve your issue, you're going to need to review your custom CSS for errors like the errors suggests.

 

You also, have a minify plugin enabled. This too could also be related to your problems.

Your response doesn't explain why this happened to two different websites on the same day that were untouched. I have no idea what a minify plug in is, and which plug in that I listed is classified as such? I've already removed CSS , tried pushing again and I can't even get DMS to load. Come on, please give me a detailed report. I've used Pagelines for a very long time and have always had detailed responses.

It is not possible for DMS to stop working for no reason or out of the blue. If both websites have stopped working then it is likely related to your web host provider who may have updated or changed something related to your server.

 

However, if you're receiving a LESS Parse error, then you haven't removed all custom CSS/LESS if you had then the error would no longer be there.

To resolve your issue, you're going to need to send me a PM with the following info.

1. A link to this topic, so I know what the PM is regarding

2. A link to both sites

3. Admin username/password for both sites

4. Make sure all custom code is removed, this includes all CSS/LESS, scripts and hooks if used.

5. Make sure all plugins are disabled.

      Hi guys!
      I have noticed that my primary sidebar becomes intermittently invisible when browsing through various blog articles on michaelkummer.com/blog.
      See:
      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?
      Thanks
      Michael

      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.
