After upgrading to 2.3, I found that there's an unwanted background colour being applied to a feature section using a fade transition.

I've tried a few other transitions and have noticed the same problem.

The only one transition that seems to be "immune" is scroll (all scroll transitions seem to be okay).

Hello dawsonbarber, the picture you are talking about is this:

Note:

Posted Image
Many apologies for not resize the image. :(


I am also having problems with "Features Section." I use mode "Full width Background Image - No text" and when the site is loading, the images get a little "messy". Well, the "Features" seems to be with a bug?

Any idea what is causing the problem?

I use "Features Section" in static mode: 380px of height, and the images were cut to length 380px. But the width of each image is 1280px;
being that the layout of my site is in "Responsive - Percent Width".

I'm using Pagelines 2.3.

I appreciate the contact.

I'm still trying to figure it out, but some new CSS elements have been added to the slider. One of them includes a dark-grey background image in CSS, which lays under the "background image" you set in feature settings. When there's a transparent image used as that user added background image, the dark grey image shows right through. Some CSS code related to the slide may also bring the CSS background forward, causing it to overlay the image you added.

I am bringing this to the attention of our developers.

On behalf of PageLines, apologies. We'll try to get this fixed.

We added the background because we thought it produced more professional results. You can easily remove it with a custom css rule if you'd like:

something like this:

Transparent is transparent so why make it untransparent ?

It was just a silly remark on arpowers comment. If I create a picture that has a transparent background. Then why add code to insert a black background in the framework. It messed up a few of my sites until i figured out I could add the code to have it removed...again.. For example I have an ellipse form in one of my features. Suddenly it was square with a background covering the back of the ellipse..

Well Andrew has already gave his reasons for adding the background "we thought it produced more professional results".
