  • in reply to: How to Change Background Color of Main Menu at Mouseover #91678

    Thanks! I finally went with a different main accent color to resolve the problem. But it’s good to know how to change this. Since the menu closes up again if you try to inspect with it open, it’s difficult to find out.

    Thanks. Since it worked once, I guess I was lucky. So now I know when I get around to wanting a slider I’ll need to implement the landing page.

    Thanks for your reply. Zed. Yes, the “favicon,” which is called “Site Icon” in the customize section. The problem resolved itself; you were right about the cache. I didn’t wait long enough.

    Zed, works fine and is simpler, too. Thanks!

    Problem solved. In a child theme, in includes > loop.php, line 35, add /#primary, like this:

    Thank you for replying, Keymaster. The problem that remained after I solved initial stuff by adding /#primary was with category pages, where you don’t set the Read More link manually. So every time the user selects one of these (for example at http://settingForth.pub > Help Me Write > Self-Help > category page display) the page reloads, goes to the top, and all that displays is the image.

    I have found a workaround that I’m implementing now. It’s a plugin called Collapse-o-Matic that initially loads the entirety of each page/post, but with a specified portion hiddne. The user then clicks to display the hidden portion, and no reload takes place. This may cause a category page to load less quickly, so I’ll need to specify that fewer posts load, but that’s easy.

    If there is a solution to this problem that I can make work on a category page, this will save me the trouble of having to open almost 100 posts and manually specify the portion of each that is to be hidden.

    I would think that the solution to this should be included in an upgrade to Kahuna; it does seem an obvious need.

    Thanks.

    Second update to this: The plugin was too complex for me to understand and for my needs seemed slow, though other users were praising it highly. However, through experimenting, I discovered that “/#primary” (without the quotation marks) appended to a page/post permalink works, triggering scrolling down to the page/post. So everything specified in the menu as a custom link ending in /#primary works, presumably because there is some coding associated with menus that preserves # as # instead of replacing it with %23. But when a post on a category page is accessed by clicking a Read More link on the excerpt, the # in the link is changed to %23. I can’t find a way to get around this. Nothing in Settings > Permalinks helps (# gets stripped out); I can’t find a plug-in that will do it. So, does somebody know enough to tell a newbie what to put in a function that would work to preserve # as #?

    I found a plugin that seems to be working, but it is slow so far–or perhaps I should say I’ve not found a way to speed it up yet. The plugin is “Page scroll to id.” It requires that every menu item be set as a custom link. If anyone on this forum knows how to speed it up, please let me know, and thanks.

    I found the solution. Custome CSS: #content .category-archive-meta { visibility: inline; }

    Oh dear! I did as you directed but category descriptions still did not display. I’ve since backed that out and then spent about four hours inserting and replacing code as directed by the WordPress Codex and as suggested by everyone I could find by searching for how to display category descriptions, and nothing has worked. I’ve worked with both the archive.php and the category.php pages. What should I do now?

    Parabola is a beautiful theme and I appreciate Appearance > Parabola Settings instead of the customizer, but I just gotta have category descriptions display.

    I never found out how to change margins in Parabola, but I did find out how to change margins on a Woocommerce Shop page to match the Parabola margins. Here’s the custom CSS to enter into Appearance > Parbola Settings > Miscellaneous Settings > Custom CSS:

    .woocommerce #mainwoo {
    padding-left: 41px;
    padding-top: 15px;
    }

    I’ve moved to a new hosting provider and the site is again up in development. So here’s the problem again: I’m using Parabola and Woocommerce, and the left margins in the content area are different. See these pages:

    http://biz229.inmotionhosting.com/~kathar17/artcards.gallery/about-art-cards-gallery/ for Parabola
    http://biz229.inmotionhosting.com/~kathar17/artcards.gallery/shop/ for Woocommerce

    How can I change the left margin of the content area in Parabola css using custom CSS in Appearance > Parabola Settings > Miscellaneous Settings?

    Thanks.

    Thanks for your answer. I found a solution to enter into functions.php:

    add_filter( ‘woocommerce_get_breadcrumb’, ‘__return_false’ );

    Sorry, working too fast with too many distractions. The Shop page is http://artcards.gallery/shop/. If you look at the left margin for the text and images in the main text area (not the sidebar), you see a fairly narrow left margin. Then, if you click either the Stores or the About button in the menu at the top, you see a wider left margin. What I want to do is make that wider margin as narrow as the margin is on the Shop page.
