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

4 posts in this topic

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.

.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

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;



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.

    • IssueM plugin
      By JudithKlinger+
      IssueM is a magazine plugin. It uses 'articles' instead of posts.
      I'm in the process of converting posts to articles.  
      In Edit Article mode, if you click on "View Article" it's perfect. No problems. 
      If you click Preview, it's trying to pull the post where it was copied from. If I delete the post, I get a Page Not Found error. 
      Preview is trying to pull a Post instead of an Article. 
      Not a big deal in the scheme of things, but thought you show know. 
    • WPML plugin
      By Jackey+
      @Andrew @Simon 
      After some extensive web building with WPML I experienced that I needed to do numerous workarounds to prevent my page data to get lost, and really could not dot the i's. I would therefore like to request PageLines to build a WPML plugin for PL5 that will enable all text fields in the PL5 editor to be handled with the string translator in WPML.
      I think that would give PL5 an edge on the international playing field.

      Hey Guys, i have been having some fun with PL5, on my test site, still learning and trying to master 3 sections a day, am happy the launch has been postponed its for the best lets master it as much as possible.
      But we still gat to eat with DMS for now, so my issue has been on how to reduce my pin pad size in pinspro, right now it display 3 in a row, like the default theme, but i want it to display 4 in a row, if i reduce my screen resolution to 90% it becomes 4 in a row, that is the perfect size, i cant see any css on the forum be able to reduce the size,  so guys please, please this is very important, i need the css to adjust the size, of all the css @Danny has provided on the forum i cant see anyone that focus on the size reduction except on hiding the bottom meta area, mine is just to reduce the size, checkout the images below, the image with 4 rows is the perfect size i crave to have, while the pinpad with 3 rows is what i currently need to change.
      Thanks Guys for your support all this while.
    • CSS Hero question
      By janpeeters+
      Hi all,
      I was totally excited to find out about 'CSS Hero' ( I read about it in the compatible plugins section of the PL5 docs ( For me it's a great way to more easily customize my sites because I'm not a CSS pro.
      I'm wondering about one thing though… Does anyone know if using this will result in a heavy penalty on page loading speeds? Would love to start using it but only if it doesn't cost too much in terms of speed.
      Thanks, Jan
