HI all, For several months I have cringed at the background image on my blog's home page -- http://covvha.net/agent-orange-gmo-monsanto-dioxin/


The silver mess is an old background for site wide settings with no repeat.  Obviously it has been removed from all of my other pages and individual blog article pages, replaced by the watermark of our logo.  I have looked thru all image files to remove it, edited meta, and of course and most obvious, set the background image time and time again in the page via edit page background.  The image will upload and follow directions for settings.  Upon saving and reloading, the image is gone, setting are gone, and still the silver crap on the page with the specific page background settings empty once again.  The silver background is literally a ghost that is haunting me!.. Please help me get it off of my site!


Thank you in advance!

Hi Kelly,


The background is fixed in your CSS and can be overwritten by editing that or by replacing it.


Here's the code:

.full_width #page .page-canvas, body.fixed_width {
    background-attachment: fixed;
    background-image: url("http://covvha.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/000G12.jpg");
    background-position: 15% 0;
    background-repeat: repeat;

I think that CSS is in an unusual stylesheet or location.  I don't think it's in one of the typical locales.  Perhaps a child theme?

      Hi I can't seem to get the background image for the Tour Guide section to be clear. It is always blurry. Any idea why that is? I am using a high res image. Is it a sizing issue? Thanks

      sorry. i got a problem on my site i can not fix myself, would be nice somebody can help.
      I use:
      - Platform 5 (latest) Pro
      - Pagelines Framework (latest for Platform 5)
      - keycdn (cdn enabler, cache enabler und optimus WebP)
      - my site:  example
      The background image i use in the Impulse Section is not beeing replaced automatically if i specify a CDN Url. I need to put in the cdn url to the image manually. Why?
      If you look in the button of the the side you see post grid section, where i have no problems. You also see there WebP Images working.
      Now i can not really use the direct cdn url for the impulse background image, cause i want to benefit there from WebP Image also in the background as it works in post grid section.
      How does it works with Impulse? The webP image for the background is ready to use.
      Thank you.

      Hi Everyone,
      I am having issues with being able to post to my blog with platform 5. Currently when i click publish, it just shows the homepage of MoonBodySoul.com. That is until i open the page editor and change the scope from "All of type: Posts" to "Current Page Only". Then I have to re-insert the menu header as well. This seems like a really dumb process. In past versions of pagelines, I could just post a blog and the menu would be there and there would be no formatting issues. What can I do to fix this?

      How do you move the thumbnail on a blog post?  I need the thumbnails for the blogroll page, but they show up at the top of the actual post page.  Normally, this would be fine, but I've been requested to put it under the blog title.  Any suggestions?

      My client is asking for a new blog layout similar to the one found here:  http://blog.perkinswill.com/pokemon-augmented-reality-and-the-future-of-urban-design/ 
      They have a splashy full-width background image overlaid with part of the blog and one sidebar.  The navigation arrows send you to the next post.
      Does anyone know if this is even possible using Framework 5?  If so, can you send me some advice on how to get here?
      Totally stuck!
