Question

Posted · Report post

I upgraded to the new version of Pagelines and started getting the black background on the Features images on the following 2 pages:

Home

Customer Service

Can't seem to find a solution for this!?

Thanks,

David

I am getting a black background in my features-area also and I tried over writing in the custom css to no availa.

Site - http://www.xava.ie

First feature is set to a no background but I still get a black background. Dont know where it is picking up the following code from:

#feature_slider #feature-area {

display: block;

position: relative;

width: 100%;

background: url(http://www.xava.ie/wp-content/themes/pagelines/sections/features/images/black-linen.png);

box-shadow: 0 2px 5px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.3),inset 0 0 15px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.5);

overflow: visible;

}

I have tried changing this in my custom css but it doe not take effect. This happens in all options in the Fetaure section on backgrounds. I just upgraded to 2.3.5 and it broke :(

I am running Pagelines 2.3.5 on Wordpress 3.4.2

Please try deactivating all active plugins and see if the background problem persists.

Hi,

Where are you adding your custom CSS, to the base child theme, the PageLines customisation plugin or the CSS / LESS editor in Custom Code ?

If you can provide this information, we will be able to investigate the issue further.

In the mean time, try the following:


#site .section-features fset_height {
background: transparent;
}
[/CODE]

The pageless compiled css is over riding my child theme css? That shouldnt have anything to do with plugins should it? Plus it only started happening after I upgraded to Pagelines 2.3.5 today!!

If you're trying to remove the black background, replace:


background: url(http://www.xava.ie/w...black-linen.png);

with

background: transparent;

Took the Feature off the page because it looked pretty bad. Also, now, finding that all my images are not showing up in the media area. I get squares in place of the images but the images are not "visible".

Also, can't upload images using "Custom Logo" upload area.

Any ideas what's causing these?

Thanks!

David

I finally fixed my issue by actually editing the style.less file for the features section and adding that as a section in the child theme. If you don't manage it, send me a message and I will send you my edited section that gets rid of that issue

You edited a core file. On the next update, you'll see those changes wiped out. This is why we repeatedly say "Don't edit core files."

I tried that but the compiled css over rides the custom css as this screen shot of Chrome Debugging environment shows. I have also attached a screenshot of the feature settings meta panel.

I added a new section in the child theme so the next time Pagelines is updated, my edits will not be overwritten:)
