Hi lovely Pagelines Forum Helpers!

I am new to Pagelines as well as coding in general so sorry if this is stooopid. 

I am reimaging my site www.theunimpossibles.com and I am trying to do a few seemingly simple things using paleness and modifying the lynette theme.

  1. How do I put a fine key line on the bottom of the dropdown nav? e.g. <hr style="height:1px;border-width:0;color:#e4e4e4;background-color:#e4e4e4”>
  2. I want a second nav in grey to site above it but I can't get the grey to go all the way to the top and full width. Is it possible to put social icons in the nav too? How can I make these two nav global but underneath the slider as per below only on the homepage?
  3. Is it possible to embed the royal slider onto the homepage? e.g putting the shortcode [new_royalslider id="4"] in the embed area generates the error: [RoyalSlider Error] Incorrect RoyalSlider ID or problem with query.
  4. Is it possible to make the slider, the instagram feed and the hero image on the blog posts full bleed?
  5. On the category page e.g http://theunimpossibles.com/category/recipes I would like to change "Posts  Currently viewing the category: "OM NOMS"" to be bigger, centred, and with more padding and only show the words "TOPIC: OM NOMS". Is it possible to remove the extract and put the date underneath similar to:  http://grittypretty.com/category/makeup/?
  6. Is it possible to make the post images on the blog posts wider and the text smaller? http://theunimpossibles.com/2015/06/30/amazingly-delicious-paleo-orange-blueberry-almond-meal-scones-with-earl-grey-cashew-cream/?pl_edit=on e.g the blog posts similar to http://grittypretty.com/makeup/the-top-6-office-beauty-must-haves/

Obviously keeping everything responsive!

I have been trying to Google all of this but alas I am very very stuck and would appreciate any help!

Kindest,

Catalina

Hey there Cat, 

Please try and keep your questions concise and have one topic per thread. 

That said, 

  1. How do I put a fine key line on the bottom of the dropdown nav? e.g. <hr style="height:1px;border-width:0;color:#e4e4e4;background-color:#e4e4e4”>
    This is best done with custom css instead of an html element.
  2. I want a second nav in grey to site above it but I can't get the grey to go all the way to the top and full width. Is it possible to put social icons in the nav too? How can I make these two nav global but underneath the slider as per below only on the homepage?
    Extra color enhancements and fixing issues are typically done with simple custom CSS. As for icons etc, the easiest way would be to get a section that is close and again customize it to your liking. There are a bunch of simple sections in different formats coming from a variety of devs... ask about this in the facebook group.
  3. Is it possible to embed the royal slider onto the homepage? e.g putting the shortcode [new_royalslider id="4"] in the embed area generates the error: [RoyalSlider Error] Incorrect RoyalSlider ID or problem with query.
    Yes, just use the shortcode in an area such as the content area that supports it.
  4. Is it possible to make the slider, the instagram feed and the hero image on the blog posts full bleed?
    yes
  5. On the category page e.g http://theunimpossibles.com/category/recipes I would like to change "Posts  Currently viewing the category: "OM NOMS"" to be bigger, centred, and with more padding and only show the words "TOPIC: OM NOMS". Is it possible to remove the extract and put the date underneath similar to: http://grittypretty.com/category/makeup/?
    This is a complicated and technical question, probably better for wordpress.org
  6. Is it possible to make the post images on the blog posts wider and the text smaller? http://theunimpossibles.com/2015/06/30/amazingly-delicious-paleo-orange-blueberry-almond-meal-scones-with-earl-grey-cashew-cream/?pl_edit=on e.g the blog posts similar to http://grittypretty.com/makeup/the-top-6-office-beauty-must-haves/?
    Depends on a lot of things, the section or theme you're using, etc..

Hey Andrew,

First of all I wanna say I love your work and thanks for taking the time to respond. Apologies for putting it all in one thread, as mentioned I am new to all of this.

I have gotten the site pretty much how I want it but still at a loss on 1 and 5..

Where would I put it in the css? The Mega Nav extension is not customisable in my backend css section?

The text is drawing from the 'magazine' extension so it isn't a Wordpress question.

Also.. whenever I try to change the background colour on any element using your amazing page editor, it refuses to save. What gives? how do I fix this without reinstalling and losing all my settings?

Thanks!!!!!!

      http://731.34b.myftpupload.com/ this website is using the NavPro navigation in Platform 5. It has a lot of menu items, so it breaks to two lines when the window is sized down. What is the media query to make the navigation either a) switch to "mobile mode" at a higher width, or b ) expand the nav into two lines. Thanks

      It would be nice to have an option in the impuls section to only view hamburger menu.  That or let nav pro have that option ad also transparent background. Impuls is a great section. Love it.

      Guys,
       When I add a Magazine layout it only shows text based comments and does not render my configured Disqus plugin.
      Can we add the same "comment panel" support to Magazine as "content" uses or am I missing something?

      I use the Plug in Yet Another Related Posts Plugin, it appears at the bottom of the Magazines Posts.
      The problem is that Font are too much Big. I don't want to reduce the font size of magazine, only the Font size of Posts generated by the plug in.
      I don't have this issue with the wordpress content, only with magazine...
      An idea ?
