Can I remove the play button that appears on canvas area background images on mobile?
I am using the Canvas Area section at the top of my site. I have a video playing in the background, which works really well on desktop. But on mobile video doesn't play without user interaction, so I have a static image in place as an alternate image. However when viewed on a mobile device there is now a play button over the static image that does nothing. This didn't use to happen so I imaging it is due to an upgrade. But this is really bad UX. Is there a way to remove it?
Here is the site:
Thanks in advance.
Make page background fill whole screen
Have a couple clients who are having background image issues. This should be a basic question so hope fix is easy. How do you get a specified image to auto resize so it fills the browser screen? Client has portrait-format image that's 1000x1000 and the left and right are displaying the background color (white) on my 1440 wide Macbook pro, as it is on client's computer. She has tried clicking "Fit image to page" and repeat background - neither is getting what she expects. I suggested trying a landscape-format image.
But the larger question is this - how does one plan a proper background image that will fill the whole screen - left to right - in the browser image and have it scale appropriately? Should one always have landscape background images? What about scrolling vs not scrolling BG? How plan your BG image so it will fill the screen on laptops, ipads, iphones... both in landscape and portrait format? Is it true that you can't do it? that either the left-right or top-bottom are cut off depending on the device and orientation?
2 sites where this needs resolution:
Elements Update 5.0.3
Mobile layout much better in 5.0.3. There appears to be an issue that it 'super-sizes' the background image?
BG Tile Size Setting Missing from Pagelines > Settings
Under PageLines > Settings, it looks like the actual setting for the background image tile size is missing.
Themes Requiring Updates
Please Note: Recent software such as DMS is not affected by this security advisory. Three days ago we were alerted by Securi via email that there were a couple of problems with two of our legacy themes, namely PlatformPro and PageLines Framework.
We take security seriously, so we wasted no time updating the free versions of these themes on the WordPress Repo and updating the pro versions over here at pagelines.com
The following versions of the two themes have been patched and are available from your account area right now.
PlatformPro 1.6.2 [download]
PageLines Framework 2.4.6 [download]
If you are using the free versions of the two themes available on wordpress.org, those files have also been patched.
PageLines 1.4.6 [download]
Platform 1.4.4 [download]
In all cases you should see an update available in your WordPress admin area and should update right away.
In the event that you cannot update the theme we took the time to create a small plugin that will protect your site.
The plugin will work with all versions of both themes, just install and activate it for immediate protection.
