Recommended Posts

"This problem is the direct result of bad coding added on your end, not ours." What are you talking about Rob. Specifically what coding. I removed all custom CSS and header scripts.

A test site of mine, latest version of Wordpress, PageLines and iBlogPro, browsers are also up to date.

Chrome, no flashing text when navigating the QuickSlider - http://screencast.com/t/NIRkYxF2mz

The same thing for Safari, no flashing text.

This is not a bug, as I am unable to recreate it, disable all active plugins, remove those icons from your menu, remove any custom scripts you may have added. This should resolve the issue.

Sir,

As I have stated several times the problem is with the SLIDING TRANSITION not with the fading transition.

So, on your test page,

  1. go to the pagelines meta settings
  2. quickslider options
  3. Slider Transition Type
  4. choose USE SLIDE/HORIZONTAL TRANSITION

I am not the only one with this problem in the forum. You will see this text shadowing error in Safari and Chrome during the sliding animation, as I have shown in my video. This is an option that does not display properly on half of the browsers out there. I am praying that you understand me this time, because this is getting old. Report the Bug, stop accusing me of using bad code and script and address this problem.

(PS, I have stripped all my custom code, removed the beautiful {less} icons from my navbar, disabled all plugins and removed the script I had in the custom code>header scripts section.)

Thank you Simon. I feel it will finally be in capable hands. The issue also occurs in framework. See it here www.mypeds.net

Possible fix, im no css guru but this appears to work:

open sections/navbar/style.less and change the navbar section so it looks like this:


.navbar{
.box-shadow(~"inset 0 1px 0 rgba(255,255,255,.1), 0 1px 3px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.25)");
color:rgba(255,255,255,.7);
-webkit-font-smoothing:antialiased;
&.navbar-content-width{
.border-radius( 4px );
}
[/CODE]

Then reload the css.

Thanks. Can't be added in custom css I take it?

for my record:

old code

.navbar{

.box-shadow(~"inset 0 1px 0 rgba(255,255,255,.1), 0 1px 3px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.25)");

color:rgba(255,255,255,.7);

&.navbar-content-width{

.border-radius( 4px );

}

That is a good temp fix. Thank you. The navbar is not flashing. Footer flashes (it seems all non black text actually flashes with this bug). Thank you.

AH! My bad, I add this automatically to all sites, as without it text in chrome hurts my eyes, so no wonder why I couldn't see the issue. I apologise!

Anyway, instead of adding it where simon said and editing the file, add this below, it should effect all text and fix the issue.


body {
-webkit-font-smoothing: antialiased;
}[/CODE]

the resulting text is a little dull, but this appears to be a good temporary fix. do you know how to make the text appear as it did before this custom styling?

Hi there, you could use css to try and change the weight of the font to bold. This might bring it out a bit more.


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.

      I think I may have installed pagelines pro incorrectly, and then used features incorrectly. I installed first platforms framework theme and then the child, thinking I could do setup for child later. I tried to set up a background image, and tried custom css feature in pagelines dashboard. I had mistakes in my css, and just thought that if I deleted the info in the css custom feature in pagelines dashboard that the new information would overwrite the old info. The background image didn't respond at all, probably because I didn't have the child directory renamed. I then tried to use the LSS plugin to create css and added more css, possibly, somewhere -sigh-. I never did change the background image and get it placed properly. I used a workaround and in nested containers I placed a background image which worked well enough, so I moved on to try to create my nav bar/ menu bar. When I go to the Menus panel, there is NO area where I can place a menu on a page. I have read and reread and re- re- reread the instructions for placing a menu. I've used the pagelines editor to place a menu, however only HOME shows up. I've been at this for many hours. I've since uninstalled all of my pagelines items and reinstalled, thinking that it would restore all my changes to default, but no, it is still all there, with all my unresolved issues. I am completely at a loss as to what to do next.

      http://731.34b.myftpupload.com/ this website is using the NavPro navigation in Platform 5. It has a lot of menu items, so it breaks to two lines when the window is sized down. What is the media query to make the navigation either a) switch to "mobile mode" at a higher width, or b ) expand the nav into two lines. Thanks

      I just installed and added the Flipper section to my home page and it makes my navigation/menu bar items disappear.
      They do show up again when scrolling down and everything seems normal on the other pages.

      I have the WHP6 theme (not sure if I needed it). But heres my question....I want to change the font in the navigation bar and it doesn't give me that option. I also want to change the size of the nav bar (height).

      Scratch this topic: the usual way does work. I think I need sleep.
       
      (Couldn't prefix the topic with iblogpro6 because it's not in the topic prefix dropdown).
       
      Anyway, I've tried the usual way, with Danny's Skeleton theme, but it's not working.
       
      Could someone let me know what I need to do?
       
      Thanks
