Feature Option Broken - black text - no feature background-no overlay

Recommended Posts

mattsimpson

On my website - http://kungfuinsights.com

After upgrading today, I am having a problem with black background on features.

This is the same / similar problem posted here - http://www.pagelines.com/forum/topic/22005-feature-background-black-with-framework-23-upgrade-using-iblog/

The features all have "black text - no feature background-no overlay" selected. However, the text is white. And the background is black.

Custom CSS is only

body {}

I tried Batman's first recommendation (see link above), and CSS was:

body {}

#site #feature_slider #feature-area {

background: transparent;

}

This resulted in a white background, a shaded border, and strange outline white font.

So, I tried adding Batman's second recommendation above to this, making the CSS this:

body {}

#site #feature_slider #feature-area {

background: transparent;

}

#feature_slider .fcontent h1, #feature_slider .fcontent h2, #feature_slider .fcontent h3, #feature_slider .fcontent h4, #feature_slider .fcontent h5, #feature_slider .fcontent a { color: black;}

#feature_slider .fcontent { color: black;}

This resulted in a strange super-saturated black grainy font.

Can someone help? Is there any way I can make the "black text - no feature background-no overlay" function work again?

If the primary function is broken, I'm happy to hack it all up with CSS to make it work. But can someone help? I just want the font to look normal, and not a super-saturated strange black font.

(I also want the border to go away. But I can address that in a different thread... First thing is first.)

Hi there, to get rid of the shadow add this to your custom code box in Pagelines>Site Options>Custom Code

#feature_slider #feature-area {box-shadow: 0;}

Have you managed to resolve the text issue? Seems to be displaying fine at the moment? Let me know, if you could take a screen shot of the problem that would be great. I'm passing your comments regarding the settings not working on to the team. Have you tired re-saving the slides to see if that corrects the settings?


Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

Hi mattsimpson:

{ color: black;} is only an example

You can go

http://www.w3schools.com/cssref/css_colornames.asp

or

http://html-color-codes.info/

and select the color as you like

You may also use color codes there, such as #C00000 or rgb(100,100,100), if you wish to use more specific colors.

Sorry if I don´t give you a correct response, I'm only a newbie

hi Batman,

I like the color black. In fact, I think all the font on the website outside of features is black. I'm just trying to make the black font inside the features match the black font outside of the features.

I'm a noob too. Any ideas how to do that?

Thanks for your reply.

Hi James B, Thanks. I tried it. It didn't work. The box is still there around the feature. The CSS is:

body {}

#site #feature_slider #feature-area {

background: transparent;

}

#feature_slider .fcontent h1, #feature_slider .fcontent h2, #feature_slider .fcontent h3, #feature_slider .fcontent h4, #feature_slider .fcontent h5, #feature_slider .fcontent a { color: black;}

#feature_slider .fcontent { color: black;}

#feature_slider #feature-area {box-shadow: 0;}

Hi Batman, that worked! Thanks!

Now I have to figure out how get the font back into the condition it was before. I like the black font. But I don't want it to be so strong, bold & grainy.

I've tried several changes.... Lots of improvement. Yet nothing seems to get the font right. http://kungfuinsights.com/

Fundamentally, the font inside the features is broken. I don't want to do any customizations, but I'm doing it because I have to. IF the feature, if it was working as designed, it would respect the setting:

"black text - no feature background-no overlay"

But it doesn't. It presents a black background with white font inside a shadow box.

To get around this, I currently have my custom CSS as this (per this thread above). However, the font is still wrong. It doesn't look like the font on the rest of the site.

body {}

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

#feature_slider .fcontent h1, #feature_slider .fcontent h2, #feature_slider .fcontent h3, #feature_slider .fcontent h4, #feature_slider .fcontent h5, #feature_slider .fcontent a { color: black;}

#feature_slider .fcontent { color: black;}

#feature_slider #feature-area {box-shadow: none;}

I've tried using other font colors. But it seems that the font is a different font... or, it's forced into a heavy font setting of some kind. It's heavy & grainy. I just want the font to look like the font on the rest of the web site.

Can someone help? (Thanks for all prior help above)

The heavy text is there because of the text shadow. To get rid of that effect, you'll need this .fcontent CSS:

#feature_slider .fcontent {color: black; text-shadow: none;}[/CODE]

      Over the last month I had extensive communications with the developer of the (premium) Anything Boxes section (in Pagelines store) (Adam Munns) and the developer of the WP Polylang Multilingual plugin (Frederic Demarle).
       
      This was because the following problem occurred:
      Anything Boxes showed all posts of two languages (Dutch and English) on the respective static frontpages for each language. It should of course have filtered posts for Dutch language on the Dutch frontpage and English on the English frontpage.
       
      The solution to this problem was simple in the end. When duplicating a page for use in another language the settings for Anything Boxes were not copied to the new page and I should have set these settings manually again on the new page. I wasn't aware of this, but it makes sense. Because of this the pages didn't know how to differentiate between posts from different languages.
       
      The dev of Polylang told me that Polylang is currently smart enough to synchronize metas like Featured images and page templates but it does not work out of the box with metas created by plugins and themes but (according to Frederic) it is rather easy to add them in the list using the filter 'pll_copy_post_metas'.
      He mentions that he is not sure that these 'PageLines Meta Settings' are stored in post meta but that would make sense according to him. He asks if the Pagelines dev team will be interested to support this feature in the future.
       
      I'm also wondering if you will consider adding Polylang translation support for manually editable strings like the 'Read more…' strings in Pagelines Settings.
       
      Well that's of course up to you but I thought to let you know to be able to take this into consideration. I also post this for other users in case they experience the same kind of trouble and are looking for an answer.

      Hi!

      I am using the shortcodes for tabs, as described in the documentation.

      When I insert the following code:


      [pl_tabs][pl_tabtitlesection type="tabs"] [pl_tabtitle number="1"]Title 1[/pl_tabtitle] [pl_tabtitle number="2"]Title 2[/pl_tabtitle] [/pl_tabtitlesection] [pl_tabcontentsection] [pl_tabcontent active="yes" number="1"] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit [/pl_tabcontent] [pl_tabcontent number="2"] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit [/pl_tabcontent] [/pl_tabcontentsection] [/pl_tabs]

      I get a strange output (in the attachment).

      Any ideas?

      Thanks in advance!
