2.3 Feature slider styles not working


Question

Posted · Report post

I've just upgraded my site to 2.3 - and the style that I had set for my feature slider on the homepage has changed from black text no background to the white version - which is not what I want. Please help. I saw that someone else has had this same problem and haven't seen a solution posted for this. Can someone help before I downgrade back to the previous version of Pagelines please? I'm a designer - can't have my site looking silly! Thanks.

I have tried disabling plugins as well but that does not change anything, so I popped this code into my styles.css:

#feature_slider .fcontainer .fcontent h1,


#feature_slider .fcontainer .fcontent h2,


#feature_slider .fcontainer .fcontent h3,


#feature_slider .fcontainer .fcontent h4,


#feature_slider .fcontainer .fcontent h5,


#feature_slider .fcontent,


#feature_slider .fcontent a {


    text-shadow: none; color: #000000;}

Which seems to have done the trick...

@reidwalley Please deactivate all active plugins and see if the problem persists.

Hi Debbie,

I'm not sure whats happened there, but if you go into your wp dash>features you'll see the four slides. If you go into edit each slide you should see in the 'meta settings' underneath the options available for the text/background. If you set each one back to black with no bg, then this should reset your site back to the way it was.

Hi all, are you all using the latest version of the framework. 2.3.1? A minor update went out last week correcting some of the minor bugs in the initial 2.3 release.

I've tried this several times over the last three days hoping it would reset it - to no avail! Anyone else having this same problem? Do i need to override the code?

Hi Debbie,

So are you saying that you're going to your Features and changing the style to the style you had before the update and it is not working ?

Can you try disabling all non-PageLines plugins and see if this resolves your issue please.

I've spent time today redesigning my site to deal with the problem because none of these suggestions have worked. I have spent time learning how to customize CSS when i've wanted something outside of what pagelines would give as standard - but in this case I shouldn't have to! One of the standard styles that I designed my original site around stopped working - that simple...

Anyway - I look forward to seeing if this does get resolved - but cannot have my site looking silly in the meantime as potential clients would think I was a dingus. Thanks for trying people.

Folks, a note on proper netiquette.

Even if you have a similar topic, opening a new post in someone else's topic is inappropriate behavior. We are supposed to hide your topics and you're supposed to open a new topic of your own.

Please cooperate and do not seek assistance on someone else's issue. It's very confusing to our team and rude to the person posting.

Thanks.

Is this problem resolved? Because it wasn't resolved for me... and I really can't understand why if someone has the same problem as me, they can't post on the same subject thread? I did the same thing and was shut down earlier - I thought that's what forums were for... hmmm. Anyway - what was the solution? I changed my site www.debbiewood.com.au so that I didn't have to worry about it, but I prefer the way it looked before, when black text was black text, and would change it back if someone could resolve the problem.

Debbie, have reopened this topic and apologize for the confusion. Unfortunately, people do not realize this is a moderated support forum where we endeavor to give individual attention to each client's needs. When others post similar problems, it only serves to confuse the subject. What may appear to be the same will always have different variables, thus it's really important that we help people one-on-one.

It's quite possible to have the same error caused by several different causes. If the solution we provide to one person doesn't work for another, soon the work on the client end to fix it is multiple times the volume needed. We are happy to examine each case and even if we have to repeat things, it's much better than having clients delayed in their solutions.

Yes Danny, i've gone in and changed it to something else and changed back, and the style that i've designed my slides around, which is black with no background is the only one that just doesn't work. I don't get it.

I have submitted a bug report and requested that an additional option be created for white text without overlay, and correction of the current coding.

Hi

You can try add in

PageLines > Site Options > Custom Code > CSS Rules

#site #feature_slider #feature-area {background: transparent;}

It is advisable to learn how to do this on your own too.

I'm having the same problem with the Feature Design Style. I'm using PageLines Framework v2.3.3.

I have Feature Design Style set to: "Black Text - No Feature Background - No Overlay"

But it displays as: white text with a black drop shadow.

This is a built-in PageLines Framework feature. What's the fix?

There was no code - it wasn't a custom style. My site has a feature slider on the front page. It had a faded to off-white background on the right and i had the text set to black text no background no overlay... but when i upgraded the pagelines theme to 2.3 it all of a sudden went to white text with a drop shadow on it - which looked ridiculous with the design of the slides. I've used code to change other things like quick sliders etc. I shouldn't need to use custom CSS when there is a style that had already been set in page lines - but that style stopped working.
