Page Background Color Control does not work/color not showing up

Recommended Posts


My page background color is translucent for some reason. It was working perfectly until today when I started to work from a defferent computer. I can change the color of the page background back to white and it will work until I open the pagelines dashboard again. If I save any settings change in the pagelines dashboard my page background will become translucent again.


This happened after I chose to hide the watermark if that helps at all.


I had installed the css lite plugin earlier and the color selection on that also stopped working. I tried to delete the plugin and reinstall and that didn't help anything. After that I deleted it entirely and that also did not help.


I tried to fix this from my original computer just to see if that would help...but it didn't.


I have done some custimization with the pagelines customize plugin but none of it seems to be something that would effect the page background.


I attached an image of it working and not working and of my color settings page, custom code page, and installed plugins page.


I found that there was a difference in the codes and added this to my custom css box. It works, but the css lite still doesn't and my color control still doesn't without it.

body #page .page-canvas {
    background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);}


Let me know if this is something you have seen before.

I just realized I posted different pages for my screenshots but it is a site wide issue not just between pages.

Hi there,


I've not seen that happen before, currently i see - http://screencast.com/t/I5wb8Vl5 but I'm assuming thats since you've put the css in.


If it only happening in one particular browser?


Ok some things to try, remove the css code, disable all non pagelines plugins. Do that have any effect on the color options? If it doesn't, let us know when the css is removed and the plugins are inactive and we'll take a look into the source code to see if we can see anything.

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.

      Hi ,
      I just noticed that the color picker has stopped showing up on my PL5 site ( please see attached image ) 
      Any idea what could be causing the problem?

      Shouldn't the image PL5 component be using the srcset/picture css directives to pick the correct size for an image? or it does already and I don't know how to use it? Thank you for any advice or enlightenment.

      Good Evening/Afternoon or Morning, 
      I am running into a problem with CSS styling not applying inside of most browsers (Safari, Firefox) when I am logged in to wordpress, and all browsers that I have tested when I am logged off and the site has been made public (Chrome, Firefox and Safari).
      As a result, I have managed to identify the probable cause. It looks as though these browsers are refusing to render my sites compiled CSS file due to it being a HTTP URL rather than HTTPS.
      I have attempted to change this URL to HTTPS in my browser, however it brings back an ERROR: File not found page - https://www.shortfilmblog.com/wp-content/uploads/pagelines/compiled-css-core-1505847507.css
      What would you suggest in this regard? Would this be resolvable from your end?
      Happy to provide any further details required.

      I know this is not an easy problem. Maybe there is a easy solution.
      I have tryed to uses the existing solution, that I have found in the forum
      I changed the colours of my nav (simple nav) and the hover effect (a. hover).
      I really tryed to highlight the active/used link in the nav but I cant figure it out.
      I want it to be black when active.
      Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
