Full page background while keeping the content box

Recommended Posts


Hey Guys and Gals -


How is everybody? 


I have a new question for you. I am pretty sure it is simple and I am just missing it. On my site tcihotels.com, I have a full page background picture of the ocean; its the first page you see when you got to the site. I can add content but you cant read because the background is overwhelming the text.


I want to be able to have the full page background pic, while also having the normal content box, For example: http://atlantisvacations.com/  This site has a full page background as well as the the content box where all the content is readable.


How can I accomplish this using pagelines? I would like to have full page caribbean themes on my pages


Thank you

Hi there, if you're looking to put a color behind the content area of your page, then you'll need to make sure the site is set to 'fixed width mode' first in the layout edit.


Then you can go to Pagelines>site options>color control and set the color for the content area. This will color the page canvas area behind the content in front of the background image.

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.

      We just upgraded to DMS v1.0.3 and the Content Box section (which we used extensively) is no longer available.  What happened?

      I've searched around, but still cannot find an answer to this missing argument error for content box. 
      Recently installed DMS. - was using Framework prior.
      Any help would be appreciated. Using Revo theme - but error occurs in basic DMS, too.
      "Warning: Missing argument 1 for PageLinesContentBox::section_template(), called in .... "
      please see attached screen shot.  
      I don't know anything about code - which is why I like this idea of drag and drop - but when something goes wrong.... I rock back and forth and sob. 
      Thanks in advance...

      Hi, i have several problems to select elements like the content box etc with css and style them....
      I have this content-box clone in the footer area and it's not reacting at all...
      the selectors are:
      (A List)
      I tried to desactivate all plugins but there is no change....Is there maybe a permission problem?

      Is there a way to have different content boxes?
      I cloned mine hoping to be able to have a different content in the new one, but it simply copied the original one.

      How do I modify the content of the content-box I have placed in my footer?
      Right now my site has 3 content-boxes in the CONTENT section of my homepage: content-box1, content-box2,  content-box3.
      I added another content-box to the FOOTER, and by default, it is showing the content of content-box1 I want to add new information to the footer content-box, making it content-box4 but don't know how to access and change it. Please help, thanks.
