best way to refresh w/out loosing section just places

Recommended Posts

For quite a while I have worked around a refresh issue but it seems quite convoluted and near impossible to explain to clients. According to a lesson in PagelinesAcademy, it is because of javascript but there must be a more elegant way to deal with this. Here are 2 scenarios:

1) Custom CSS: I add a css style to custom css, then have to select Edit in a component, then click in 2 text boxes to get the Refresh icon in the tools pallet to show. I click Publish a couple times then Refresh and hope that the new CSS code is still there - half the time it is not, so I have to redo a couple times till the system keeps it. Your "Tip: Hit [Cmd⌘+Return] or [Ctrl+Return] to Preview Live" at top of CSS window does nothing on my Macbook Pro.

2) Home page at: http://199.119.180.102/~harmhill/newsite/ has 2 columns for main template area. In larger right column, I need to add a 3 column above the WPloop and below the image, which are both in that right column. I can drag the 3col section to the right place and it says "Section Added! Refresh page to view." Have tried several ways to get the section to stay and refresh but nothing works! Using cmd-r (refresh) in Mac Chrome, not my trick above... can't get the 3col section to stay on refresh, so no way to add the 3 text boxes required next.

So 2 questions:  1) what is best way to refresh a page and preserve CSS and sections added and 2) can you put a 3-col inside 1col of a 2-col?

thanks

HI,

1. If your CSS isn't remaining or saving when you refresh or click publish. You either have a LESS Parse Error i.e. invalid CSS, a plugin causing a conflict (usually a cache plugin) or your web hosting environment is setup oddly. If you're using Shared Hosting, this is very likely the cause. However, I have ran a reverse IP check on the IP you have posted above and there are only 8 other sites on the server. Therefore, you're not using shared hosting. 

2. Can you record your issue using an app such as Jing, QuickCast or RecordIt. So we can see exactly what is happening.

DMS should remain your CSS without any issue, unless you have one of the following issues which I mention above.

      Hi, I am trying to figure out how to create columns where the text flows into the next column, like the attached, and am flummoxed. Does anyone have any ideas?

      Hello,
      So the desktop version of PageLines sections looks fantastic! Now for the mobile view.. errr.. ok, don't know what 's going on with that. I have jetpack, tried a couple of "mobile view" plugins. It's a no go. The PageLines sections ONLY are all out of proportion. The title area HUGE on home page, slider- barely visible- almost disappeared, and section below that with two images that should be side by side are now staggered - not even aligned one on top of the other. The letters in this section- also enormous.. 
      Every page title HUGE.
      Share buttons on blog page- ALL OVAL with no icon inside- just an "X" in its place
      Additionally, you guys sent me some code to remove all of that, suddenly they're showing up again also on the desktop version- also with "x's" in the colored circles.  
      Any advice on how to fix all of this?

      Hi to all,
      I always have this problem and I'm unhappy with the fix I usually apply for aligning columns at the bottom (see attached).
      For example: I use two text boxes side by side. Both text columns have a background colour. Text column 1 has 200 words and text column 2 has 300 words.
      How do I easily get them to align at the bottom without using a min-height declaration? I want to get text column 1 with 200 words to fit the height of text column 2 if that makes sense?
      Thanks for any help on this!
      Cheers,
      James

      Hi, I'd like to know if there is way to put the Hero box right under the column above it. The way it is now (see attached picture) has a lot of blank space. I can't seem to move it up a bit fo fill in this empty space.
