Completely hide background image - mobile

Recommended Posts


Hi there,


I'm currently trying to figure out how to hide a fixed background image for mobile (just iphone initially...)?


In the custom css area i've added (as per the documentation on the browser-specific CSS plugin):


body.iphone { background-image: none;


However, that doesn't seem to be working for me.


I've then had a look in Firebug and I noticed that the image has the style-id 'pagelines-page-bg', so I tried:


body.iphone.pagelines-page.bg {background-image:none;}


but still no luck.


Any clues? I'm kinda stuck until I figure this out...


Cheers and thanks

The background image is assigned to the body tag, therefore thats the reason why your code isn't work. If you inspect your website using Firebug or your browsers web dev tools, you will see that the image is assigned to the page-canvas div.


Therefore, you need to adjust your code to include .page-canvas.


For example:

body.iphone #page .page-canvas { 
background: none;

      Not sure exactly what is causing the issue. For some reason, why you view my site on mobile, the menu does not show up. It will pop up, but it is black. You can check it out here: http://dev.caryfbc.org. I'm also attaching a screenshot where I shrunk my browser down. Any suggestions?

      I have been using DMS and pagelines.
      I am facing to a huge trouble with the appearance of one of my page on mobile (smart phones) built with pagelines.
      However I haven’t come to any solutions to organise either edit the appearance of mobile view to look neat or deactivate the responsive function. 
      Now it looks totally messy on the phone...
      1. Is there any way to edit the appearance of the mobile version (responsive theme)?
      2. Is there any way to deactivate responsive function?
      If I could receive support from you to go thorough this process I would be happy to be a pro member. 
      Looking forward to hearing from you.

      This just happened to a site I'm working on. When I decrease width of browser to check for responsiveness...the pagelines content section is not responding???

      While building my website, I set a padding of 5%, 25%, 5%, 25% so the text on the pages is not too wide.
      However, it looks crappy on mobile.
      How do I get the same effect and still have it look good on mobile?

      Hi guys,
      can I limit the overall of MegaNav on mobile? When I look at michaelkummer.com on a mobile device, the menu takes up more than a third of the screen space. Using CSS to limit max-height doesn't seem to work. Is there another/better way to reduce the overall height to maybe 10% of the screen available?
