  • In reply to: Flashing between pages


    I’ve now done a fresh install of WP and Graphene and still have the flashing. No plugins (other than Akismet) are installed/activated.

    My background image is down to 230kb which is pretty small, but even without the bg image it still flashes really badly in Chrome and IE.

    I dunno what to do anymore but to look for another theme which is a shame as I have been using this for a long time.

    I hope someone can figure this out for the future.

    I now have no background image and no plugins activated – it still flashes between menus.

    Not ‘too’ noticeable in Firefox, more so in Chrome and really bad in IE.

    Going to try a fresh install, if it persists, I guess i need to move on. 🙁

    Deactivated all plugins and site seems to run normal with ‘maybe’ a little flash.

    However, as I activate more plugins, the flashing takes longer.

    Not sure if it is the way Graphene is loading plugins, whether it’s WP’s fault or what, but I haven’t had this issue with other templates so I’m leaning towards Graphene being the problem.

    I’ve used Graphene for a lot of websites and I can’t tell clients now to disable plugins until they are happy with the amount of flashing between pages.

    I’d hate to have to move to another template system as this one is so flexible and easy for clients to work with.

    I’ll keep researching but I’m not an expert on the underlying code so hopefully one of the developers can help.

    Something that might help figure this out.

    Using Firefox, I disabled scripts on the site via No Script and the screen does not flash from menu to menu.

    I don’t know enough about this, but will do more research.

    Maybe someone has an idea for me to try?

    The only reason the titles were showing up in white was that I changed them in Graphene’s color options in order to keep the client quiet for the time being. If I cleared the value there as you suggested, Graphene kept going back to the original dark blue color and ignored my ‘color’ code in the style sheet.

    Now that I know that the Graphene colors are loaded after the ‘style.css’ it makes more sense. That and the ‘!important” addition made the difference and now the style sheet controls the color.

    Thanks! That’s what I needed to know!

    Yes, but the color is being controlled by the ‘Graphene template options’, not the ‘style.css’.

    The ‘color’ code I have in the above list of codes does not do anything.

    If I change the color in the ‘style.css’, it is always overridden by the ‘Graphene template options’ whereas all the other options in the ‘style.css’ override the ‘Graphene template options .

    Unless there is something specifically different in my installation, try changing the color of your ‘post-title’ via the ‘style.css’ and you’ll see what I mean. You can change everything else about it but the color.

    In theory, the settings you add to the ‘style.css’ should override the settings in ‘Graphene template options’, correct?

    And it does, all except for the ‘.post-title’ color element.

    That’s why I’m thinking that there is a ‘small’ bug in the template that is not recognizing this particular element.

    If you can get it to change via the ‘style.css’, then I obviously have a different problem.

    Thanks for your time.

    So here is what I have found.

    Using Firebuug, I could change the color of the text title inline live and it worked fine.

    When I copied the code to the style.css (I’m using a child theme), it would not work.

    Everything else within the title can be changed (font, size, text shadow color, etc.) using the style.css except the color.

    I can change the ‘Title Text’ color using the Graphene Options->Colours->Content Text, but you cannot do it from within the style.css.

    The reason I want it in the style.css is to be able to copy it to other websites once complete.

    This seems to be the only attribute that can’t be changed in the style.css, is this intentional or is this a bug in the theme?

    Well, I got the background to work, but I just can’t get the text to change color. This is what I’ve added to get everything to match so far:

    .post-title {
    background-image:linear-gradient(#8E918D, #2B2B2B);
    background-position: initial initial;
    background-repeat:initial initial;
    margin:-17px 0 5px -12px;
    text-shadow:#333333 0 -1px 0;
    padding:7px 12px;
    width: 100%;

    .post-title, .post-title a, .post-title a:hover, .post-title a:visited {
    color: #ffffff;
    font-family:'Pontano Sans', arial, sans-serif;

    I had to use the two different entries or it wouldn’t work correctly.

    I’ve tried using entry-title, h1, h2 (h1 is used for the front page anf h2 is used for full pages) and just can’t get it to work.

    And yes, I’ve been using firebug to try and figure it out.

    Hello? Any chance on getting some help with this?

    I just need to be pointed in the right direction as to which div/class I would need to change. I ‘think’ I can figure out how to do the gradient bar in the back.
