Background not showing up in Simplicate

Recommended Posts


There is an option under Site Options to select a few standard patterns for your background when using the simplicate theme. The option is under Color Control and has about six different patterns to chose from.  I have selected one of these options but it is not showing up on my site.  I do not have any colors selected under the color control option and have cleared my cache.  I actually see the background for a split second before as the site loads.  I am wondering if there is a compatibility issue with the crack bar or another plugin on my site.

Hi there, i'm moving this post to the simplicate area in the store products for you. The developer will be able to advise further for you. Also please take a look at the theme authors support forum here - http://tmeister.net/2012/10/new-look-better-support-system/

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.

This was answered via HelpDesk pbut i will post the response here:



Actually there is no issue on your site, is more about configuration.

Pagelines offers two types of layouts,

1.- Boxed 
2.- Full Width

When Simplicitate use the Boxed one, there is a space ( outside the box) to show the background.

When Simplicitate use the Full Width layout, the content take all the space and in this way the backgound color for the box, cover all the space on the browser, So if you can see the demo page ( http://pagelines.tmeister.net/simplicitate/ ) click on the config icon left top click on layour and change it to "Full" you will see exactly what you see on your site.

So, if you want to show a background image you need to use the boxed layout.

      It is with much sorrow that I have to say goodbye to a product that had such great potential.
      There has been no acknowledgement from anybody as to whether or not Pagelines will continue
      or even if they are going to hand it over to someone that would keep the project going. I can't
      keep shelling out money every month to a company that either no longer exists or has chosen to 
      abandoned their customer base. Well it has been a nice 5 years.

      Hello Pagelines,   I no longer use pagelines services. I have deactivated the automatic annual payment. But it already charged to my credit card. Since I cancelled my contract before the end, Can I request to refund?

      I am wanting to know what the status of the Pagelines Platform.
      I have noticed that there has been absolutely no updates on Platform 5 for over 8 months.
      Please tell me you haven't gone off on another tangent and going to build the next great solution
      and then leave all of us to have to completely rebuild our sites like we did for
      Pagelines, then DMS, then Pagelines Platform.
      I like what you build, but what you need to do is build one product and then make it better, rather than 
      abandoning it and building something else.
      You haven't done anything for so long that even WordPress is providing a warning.
      "Warning: This plugin has not been tested with your current version of WordPress."
      So what is the Status. I mean if I am going to pay a monthly fee for a product, I don't want to pay for one
      that is no longer being supported. You have a great product, I'm not bashing it, I'm just wondering what 
      your next move is because I have business decisions to make for myself, and whether of not this is something
      I should stick with.

      Please be kind enough to respond.

      Thank You,
