Child Base/black Square

Recommended Posts

I recently started noticing when I go to my site (http://tinyurl.com/afpg4cr) that a black square appears right before the full background screen picture shows up. This started happening after I activated the pagelines framework child theme that I downloaded from the pageline store and later activated. This did not happen when the pageline framework theme was activated.

My understanding was that it was better to work on the child theme to avoid losing certain important codes/etc in the event of a pageline framework/updates/upgrades, etc.

So my questions are:

1) What is the reason for the black square?

2) Would you recommend to continue working on the child theme or go back to the other one?

Thanks for your help.

Simon,

I think the problem comes from the Supersize function of our Background settings.

Try unchecking that option in Dashboard > PageLines > Site Options > Website Setup.

Once it's unchecked, see if the black box vanishes.

If it does not, and it appears on top of the image, use Firebug to identify the specific element then give it display:none; or background-color: transparent;

Should that make it disappear, try reactivating Supersize to see if that fixes the problem.

If turning off Supersize does work, then we'll find some CSS for you to use a stylesheet method of supersizing.

unchecking the supersize option removes the black square.

checked firebug but I do not know how to use it. it seems there is nothing to display and background is transparent.

Now I dont want to sound blunt but I honestly though there was going to be less of the behind scenes with framework. Now, it appears a simple supersize background pic have to be handled via CSS? And I havent even started to do anything with this site.

Regarding your second question: You can try going back to the other child theme (I assume you're referring to base theme) to see if that works better for you.


Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.

I tried both. It did not get rid of the the black square. So what would be the css code this guy above referring to?

Will there be a fix for this supersize issue?

Hi Simon, the black box is the loader for the supersize background, the reason it appears is to show you that its loading/looking for the image prior to it displaying on the page. If you want to remove it using Css you can use the below, just paste in to Pagelines>site options>custom code


#supersized-loader {

    display: none;

}

      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,

      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!
