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

Recommended Posts

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...


Have an okay day.

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.

      Hi guys,
      every since Chrome introduce scroll anchoring (see chrome://flags) blog posts on my page start scroll automatically as soon as the user scrolls down a bit. It is super annoying and I don't know exactly what triggers the incompatibility with Chrome's latest feature that is supposed to improve usability.
      Since I don't know what causes it (Pagelines, or a Plugin), I would like to disable the feature using a CSS override that Google describes as follow:
      "Scroll anchoring aims to be the default mode of behavior when launched, so that users benefit from it even on legacy content. A CSS property overflow-anchor can disable scroll anchoring in part or all of a webpage (opt out), or exclude portions of the DOM from the anchor node selection algorithm. This property supports the following values when applied to an element E:
      overflow-anchor: auto (the default value) declares that the DOM subtree rooted at E is eligible to participate in the anchor node selection algorithm for any scrolling box created by E or an ancestor of E. overflow-anchor: none declares that the DOM subtree rooted at E is not eligible to participate in the anchor node selection algorithm for any scrolling box created by E or an ancestor of E." Do you guys happen to know how to use that property with the ROOT element so it applies to the whole page?
      Thanks
      Michael

      Hello,
       
      I'm basically a designer and understand a little on how to change CSS, etc., so please excuse my ignorance...  I recently upgraded to the newest platform from the DMS and my old DMS theme no longer functions.  I'm trying to replace the image slider that my Horizon Photography Theme (Nick Haskins) had created.  The Impulse image slider seemed the closest to what I need, but there are problems.
      It seems the the Impulse section for sliding images defaults to the image width, no the height.  I can change the Impulse stage height and width, but this does nothing to the internal content.  For instance, if I change the height to 200 pixels, the image remains the full width and only shows a cropped section.  I would like the ability to change the Impulse height, and have the image height fit space. 
      I've put this custom CSS in, but again, this only controls the stage height of Impulse:
      .pl-sn-impulse .pl-impulse-cell .cell-wrap, .pl-impulse-container, .owl-stage-outer {
        width: 100%;
      }
       
      Any suggestions welcome.  Thanks

      Hello. 
      I have just realized that CSS (Less plugin) , is not working..... I have disable all plugins (except PL CUSTOM LESS and PL5) , and ... it's not working ... 
      It's not the first time. Usually I had trouble with a plugin name Autoptimize , but it's Desactivate now , all memory have been purge, and it's still not working! :-/ So it's not from this plugin. 
      NB : When I am logged on my website, if i go on the black wordpress dashboard bar, go on the PL icon, clic on </> LESS/CSS => then the page suddenly apply the CSS .... But As soon that i reload the page, nothing. I think the problem is that the plugin LESS/CSS does not load properly (if I can say that with my simples words).
      I order to keep the site "good looking" I have temporally copy/paste all my LESS code in a plugin : Script n Styles that apply the LESS/CSS code... but it's not a solution for long time.
      Can someone help me ? Did I do something wrong ? Is it an update ?

      Any chance of a pagelines table plug-in coming? I know that the use of short codes and bootstrap can achieve this, but I can't seem to find any easy/visual editor way of doing this. There are table plug-ins around for wordpress, but honestly, they are pretty clunky. I'd pay for a tables plug-in, given how much I would use tables if I could.
