Can't remove grey background & images in a slideshow's thumbnails since 2.3 upgrade


Question

Posted · Report post

Hi, After updating to 2.3, I have been unable to remove some background images, colors and borders on a page of thumbnails I want to use for a portfolio page. Here's a link to what I'm talking about: http://www.maripfeif...olio-slideshow/

I used the Firefox Firebug to find the CSS and change it; it worked live, then I put it in my Custom CSS box, saved the changes and refreshed the page. The thumbnails still had a grey background and when I hovered over a thumbnail, a grey background would appear.

I'm using the Framework 2.3, the latest version of Wordpress and the slideshow plugin I'm using is the Slideshow Pro plugin from Raygun. I did use the NextGen gallery before but didn't like it.

I disabled plugins to see if there was some kind of a conflict; none that I could find.

Here's the interesting thing: I switched themes for a moment to the default twentyeleven them and there were no grey backgrounds or grey hover in the backgrounds. So, I think it's a Pagelines thing. See the attached screenshot.

Could you please help me? I like PL a lot, and I really don't want to change themes at this point.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Try:


.pager a, .pager span {

    display: inline-block;

   padding: 0 5px 14px;

}

I have no idea if this will work. There's still a hover action I can't seem to narrow down either. What's creating this selection of products? A plugin?

Hi Rob, Yes, it's a plugin, the Slideshow Pro from made by Raygun. I didn't like the NextGen plugin - to me, it was messy and didn't give the result I was looking for. This slideshow pro plugin can do a lot of things, and that's why I am using it.

I'll try your code, see if it works; i'm having someone from Raygun help, too.

I hate to say this but I do think it's a Pagelines issue. I'm wondering if this has anything to do with the PL pagination? I'm just thinking out loud here...the plugin works beautifully on other themes (grr).

One other thing I noticed was that when I changed the CSS to "display: none;" for example, to get rid of the grey stuff, I found another line of CSS code that had the same information. So, I think there's a duplicate CSS rule going on there...

Well, I'll try a few more things. Please don't mark this resolved yet...

Well, topics remain open till you say the issue is fixed.

It very well could be a conflict with the plugin and PL 2.3. We changed several CSS selectors and switched to LESS, completely. That could have caused an issue with the plugin if it's not prepared for it.

I found the code below works, but there's an empty

<span>
tag with a closing one inside the grey box with rounded corners. When I use Firebug and remove the opening and closing span tags, I can successfully apply the code below and get a borderless image.

.pager a, .pager span {

background-color: #F3F3F3;

background-image: -moz-linear-gradient(center top , #F6F6F6, #EFEFEF);

background-repeat: repeat-x;

border: 1px solid #DDDDDD;

border-radius: 15px 15px 15px 15px;

display: inline-block;

padding: 0;

}

[/code]

Please show them the attached snapshots. You'll see a tiny oval within the rounded box. That oval is the span tags.

In the second image, I've removed the span tags and changed the padding to 0 (zero) and the images line up perfectly.
