When utilizing the Design Style settings for the feature appearance, The setting "Black Text - No Background Image - No Overlay" remains in a gray patterned background with white text. Is this a bug or I'm I missing some other more global settings?

Hi,

 

When I create a new feature slide and use the following options:

 

Text Aligned Left

Black Text - No Feature Background - No Overlay

 

It does work for me although the text color is white not black so I have reported this.

 

Can you reply here and provide the options you have used for your feature slide please, so we can try to recreate your issue.


Please search our forums, before posting!

thanks for the prompt respond.

I had the feature working prior to updating to display just left justified over the entire width of the feature slider using viewer | Html above the settings which where:

 

 

Feature Text Position:
- Select - (so default)
 
Feature Design Style:
Black Text - No Feature Background - No Overlay

 

Now after update the settings did not change though I tried to fix it on one of the sliders toggling all options. Not only did the set Feature Design Style not work properly,

it also seems that I no longer have the option to utilize the entire width of the feature slider for the content. As soon as I select "Text On Left" the text blocks to the left as a strip. Does this all have to be edited via CSS or is it indeed not working properly... since it was before the update?

Hi,

 

You've customized it quite a bit as each slide now scrolls up more like a marquee than a slider.

 

You can of course, change the color of the font and background of the overlay and remove the default grey image which is the container's background with CSS. This requires minimal skill and tools like Chrome's Inspection Tool or Firebug for Firefox.   Either of these will guide you to the correct element, which you may test in the CSS sandbox on the right.

 

This should allow you to apply all the customization you'd like. It did for me.

Thanks for the recommendations.

 

I still find it a bit odd that it was working the way I liked it and after an update things go to a point where it creates a lot of more work again... plus if one of the Design Settings clearly states "Black Text - No Feature Background - No Overlay" and it is simply white text on dark background then something is messed up...

 

Thanks though I still love the Pageline theme, will work through the issues and keep using it.

I think the update you mention may have added the grey background for the section, so when you see "No Overlay", it's really transparent and you're seeing that background, not the overlay. The font color should be as described. I concur there.  But easily changed.

 

Thanks for your patience.

      Hello,
       
      After updating the site below to Framework 2.4.6, the main feature slider has changed appearance, now looking pixellated. Before it looked perfect.

      Please can you advise what I should do to make the slider look correct (should be 250px high). See attached for an indication of what is happening.

      Several other the sites we have created use PageLines Framework and I am wary of updating them to 2.4.6 if it will cause all Feature Sliders to break in this way.
       
      Many thanks,

      Hello,
       
      The feature slider images are stacking vertically upon the page load on all browsers.  I found a forum topic that used the following css coding but this is not working for me.  
       
      #page #feature-area {
                   overflow: hidden;
           }
        I can't take the screen capture fast enough to give a shot of it.   I'm using the newest version of WP and the url is modelalliance.org.  Any help would be appreciated!   Best,   Kelli

      Regarding the feature sliders at this url:

      I need to be able to credit the artist for the images directly at the images on my website.  It seems like the cleanest way to do this is to add hover text to the images with the name of the artist.  I can't seem to figure out though how to add the hover text to the image.  Images displayed in posts and on pages use the title as hover text so that is workable.  Please advise on showing hover text for feature slider images.  Thanks!

      I've tried disabling all plugins and erasing the custom code and this problem persists as you can see in the attached image ( the max. size per file is way too small by the way ).
      Please help.

      Ever since the last update my feature slider doesn't load correctly and the images run the length of the page. Not sure how to really trouble shoot since the problem is intermittent.
