Feature Text Unreadable In Ie

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I use Pagelines Framework.

I have a feature on my homepage. The feature has photo background and white text. In chrome and firefox the text is readable because it has transparant support color. In Internet Explorer that support color is absent and the text is not readable. Where and how can I fix this? Second, how can i change the style for the text in that feature?

Thanks,

Kind regards,

Floris

Floris,

I have checked the site on Firefox and IE9, and the two look almost exactly the same. I agree that there's some small blending of the white text with the background image, but it's not a problem with the Slider.

Two factors come into play here. In Firefox, the text shadow used in the excerpt/title area of sliders works perfectly, but IE doesn't recognize text shadow, thus the white text is directly upon the black opacity-controlled background. Since that background shows an image which has numerous bits of white, there are a few distinct places where the image and text appear to meet.

Since we cannot fix IE, the solution is to fix the image. You can replace it with something a bit more solid in the area under the text or you can totally eliminate the image under the text, leaving it as an empty black space in the image. As the image isn't displaying something contextual to the message, such as a person, a building or landscape scene, you should be able to do this. It wouldn't affect, but might enhance the message.

Technically, it's possible to darken the opacity of the text area background, but that would have the exact same effect of changing the image, which in fact, is much easier to change.

      Please Note: Recent software such as DMS is not affected by this security advisory.   Three days ago we were alerted by Securi via email that there were a couple of problems with two of our legacy themes, namely PlatformPro and PageLines Framework.
       
      We take security seriously, so we wasted no time updating the free versions of these themes on the WordPress Repo and updating the pro versions over here at pagelines.com
       
      The following versions of the two themes have been patched and are available from your account area right now.
       
      PlatformPro 1.6.2 [download]
      PageLines Framework 2.4.6 [download]
       
      If you are using the free versions of the two themes available on wordpress.org, those files have also been patched.
       
      PageLines 1.4.6 [download]
      Platform 1.4.4 [download]
       
      In all cases you should see an update available in your WordPress admin area and should update right away.
      In the event that you cannot update the theme we took the time to create a small plugin that will protect your site.
      The plugin will work with all versions of both themes, just install and activate it for immediate protection.

      Will I be able to keep my Pagelines Framework website live and uninterrupted while building my new iBlogPro6 site?
      Is there a online help guide of specifics instructions how to get this process started once I download iBlogPro6?

      Hi,
      My site (fernandosouza.org) currently runs Pagelines Framework. A while ago when DMS was released I had a problem when installing it. Every time I tried I got a blank page whenever I activated it and I couldn't even go back to my adm backend. I always got stuck on a blank page loop. I remember reporting it here back then, but no solution was found.
       
      Anyway, I decided to give it another try now with DMS2. For my surprise, the same thing happened. I activated the theme and got stuck on a blank screen. The only way out to it is to manually delete the theme using a FTP client.
       
      I really would like to have my site running DMS2. Maybe the only way to install it is to manually delete Pageline Frameorks before? (just a guess here)
       
      Anybody knows a solution to this?
       
      By the way, I'm using wordpress 4.0

      Ok, I'm having problems with my custom post types showing on my front blog page along with my regular blog post, here is a link to the custom post type (sample post) ==> http://www.definitiondjs.com/musiclibrary/this-is-a-post-title-test/ ..... my custom fields doesn't show, Why?
       
      Also, when I edit the custom post, all the fields change to blank (the previous text that was in the field is somehow deleted), why?
       
      Wordpress: 4.0
      Pageline Frameworks: 2.4.5
      cpt plugin is: WCK, here is a link to the site ==> http://www.cozmoslabs.com/docs/wordpress-creation-kit-documentation/
       
      I linked snapshots of the custom fields area, which doesnt show after publishing or after clicking edit this post:

      Summary, I would like my custom post to display on my front page, along with my blog post.
       
      Also I would like to have an option to hide post from showing on front page, but I would like for all posts to show in search, archieved and category, even if hidden from the front page.
       
      Thanks in advance!
