[Resolved] Background Color

    Hi there,

    LOVE this widget – and was able to get this working in no time!

    However, I am having a problem with the background color on the front page of my site. I read the post Widget background color (Twenty Thirteen theme) and tried your suggestions – my theme is made in Artisteer though. But still no luck.

    I have limited the widget to only appear on the front page – which is a static Page.

    I can tell you that the background color worked on all the other pages and posts – just not the front page for some reason.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you!

    Colleen

    Hi Colleen,

    It seems the necessary style of the plugin is not loaded.

    How did you insert the widget box, by the shortcode, the auto-insert, or the PHP function?

    Auto insert –

    When I was working to get it just on the home page I was ticking things one by one to see what worked and didn’t work. The background color worked on all of the pages / posts except for the front page.

    You can take a first hand look if you would like – I can email you access info?

    There are a few things we can try before that.

    1. Set the auto-insert settings as follows:

    Enable Auto-insert: On
    Areas( hook ) : check – Post / Page Content ( the_content )
    Position: Below
    Limit Auto-Insert to Checked Page Types: check – Home /Front Page
    Limit Auto-Insert to Checked Post Types: check – Post, Page

    Uncheck other options in the Auto-insert section.

    2. If the above method does not work, try the shortcode.
    Disable the Auto-insert option and place [responsive_column_widgets] in the editor of the front page and save.

    Let’s see if the style gets loaded.

    1. I followed your settings – mine were set to match (but I had additional settings Disable Auto Insert – but I unchecked them)

    Now the background is showing on the Blog Page – as I mentioned earlier I knew it was working because this is where I saw it working – on the pages I didn’t want to see it lol. But still no luck on the Front Page.

    When I checked the Disable Auto Insert on Posts etc… it turns it off on all the pages except the front page.

    I am going to try option 2 now….

    Thank you!

    2. IS THE WINNER!

    Whew! Thank you for your awesome support and help on this!! You Rock!!

    Never thought of trying the shortcode since the rest of it was so easy – I figured I was doing something wrong.

    Thank you so much!!
    And thank you for the great widget!!
