Black background in iOS

Recommended Posts


FIrst, thanks for the help in the past. I have my blog the way I like it now, and i"m using the latest Pagelines framework 2.3.2:


But when I look at it through an iPhone or an iPad (and turn off the mobile versions of it), then it doesn't render the page correctly. When the website first boots up, it looks right. But when you zoom out, a lot of the page's background is submerged in black.

The weird thing is that when I use an iPad or iPhone emulator, it looks fine:


But it doesn't work when using the real devices. Is there a way to fix this?

P.S. I had also installed the Browser Specific CSS plugin at one point, but didn't really know how to change the CSS to help with the iOS devices. So naturally, nothing was fixed.

Hi James,

You can actually see the issue when you also resize your browser window. Therefore, can you provide us with settings you have used on both Layout Editor and Color Control please. So we can try to recreate the issue.

Actually, your asking these questions helped me figure some things out. I changed the format to Fixed Width, and then changed the body background color to #FFFFFF. That fixed most of it. Now, I'll work on the Fixed NavBar, but it's working fine now. Thanks!

      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.
      Best regards,

      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!
