Grandstand section images not resizing

Recommended Posts

werdnags

Hi Folks,

 

I made my site on a temp URL and move it.  All looks great except the Grandstand sections I have on a few pages are not looking in line and the images and not resizing themselves.

 

Before I moved it the images were lined up great.

 

Anyone any ideas?  Thanks.

Hi,

 

Why do you have this in your child themes style.css file:

 

@import url("..dms/style.css");

There should be no need to import the DMS stylesheet. So that can be removed. When that is removed, see if this resolves your issue. If you want a child theme you can use the PL Starter theme here - http://answers.pagelines.com/how-to-install-a-child-theme

I have spoken to the main developer of GrandStand and he has informed of the following:

 

"GrandStand image sizes are based off the regular size image, if there isn't a regular size image then it has no height/width to double. Tall images are 2x high same width as a regular image. Where as wide images are 2x wide same height as a regular image."

 

Therefore, if your images are not large enough or in the right proportion such as you can not use a landscaped image via the tall image option, as it will be stretched and the same goes for wide images when the regular image is in portrait proportion.

OK, great, that makes sense.  Although everything was fine with the image sizes until I moved the site to it's permanent domain.

 

Is there a standard size images should be?

 

I will play around and see what I come up with.

 

Thanks Danny!

There isn't a standard size per se. However, the larger the images the better, but not too large. Also, remember what I said about proportions. If you stick to that guideline and have quite large images. Then there should be no issue.

      Hi Everyone,
      I am looking to make a customization to Grandstand. I want to have it set so it displays (the grandstand panel image) an image other than the set panel image when a section is clicked. I can see a bit but I am not sure (for example) how each panel is defined when it is clicked and displayed...any input will be greatly appreciated. the site in question is http://hithere.ink/
      <section id="pl-grandstanduyax5kp" data-object="PL_GrandStand" data-sid="pl-grandstand" data-clone="uyax5kp" class="pl-section span12 offset0    pl-bg-cover section-pl-grandstand pl-sortable level1 sortable-first cant-offset sortable-last" style="  ">        <div class="pl-section-controls fix">
       
      Thanks!

      At one point developing my site I added some test text. It says: "Testing a title." and "Testing a text block." I believe that I then deleted the section or the text. It no longer appears in my  Chrome browser, but it still is appearing below every post in Safari and Firefox. Since I cannot see it anywhere in Chrome, I cannot delete this text or section. 
      Here is a sample post url:

      Hi everyone,
      When you click an image on grandstand it opens the image at the top with a small close icon. The image does not fit as well as I had hoped. I think it will require quite a bit of CSS to make it look as I wanted. Therefore, I think the easier approach for me is to disable it from do this. Is there a way to disable this when clicking on an image in grandstand so that nothing happens?
      Kind regards,
      James

      I thought I would check out the new sections from pagelines today. I installed the Grand Stand pagelines section. However, on loading the home page the images flash up for a second and then they disappear.
       
      I tried re-installing the plugin but this didn't help. I have also disabled all plugins and scripts.
       
      I also tried both the full width and content width sections. Both will not display at all.
       
      Thanks

      Hi, I recently updated wordpress and plugins and now changes simply do not register at all in the DMS interface. At first I can type in a textbox field, but I don't see that affecting the type on my page. Then I publish, see no effect. After that I can no longer even type in a text box interface field. 
       
      Wordpress interface works normally, it's just the DMS that isn't functioning.
       
      I'm setting up a dev site to troubleshoot this by disabling plugins, or reverting to a saved backup, etc. But I thought before I go to all the trouble someone might have a tip for me.
       
      Thanks in advance!
