Support » Plugin: Genesis Dambuster » Dambuster stripped out many elements on Homepage

  • Hello there, I activated dambuster and it did not do anything until I enabled tweaks! Well when i did I lost most of the formating for my home page and I unable to regain it until i disable tweaks. Once I do that everything is fine! I tried to uninstall the plugin and when i added it back the settings were still saved. Is there a way i can remove all data involved with the plugin and reinstall it fresh. It seems there is not a way to remove the check boxes on
    Header
    Above Content
    Below Content
    Footer
    Background
    and resave it. Once I did it by accident it is done!
    I should have deselected all the boxes except what I needed and set it up in the admin also.

    The idea is that you will typically want to use the plugin on landing pages. This is where you want to break out from the restrictions of your WordPress theme and display the content full width. The idea is that you “Enable tweaks” on these special pages.

    The plugin has settings in TWO places

    1. Default settings – under Genesis >> Dambuster
    2. Page specific settings – these appear in the Post/Page editor – this is where you can override the default settings and then click the Enable Tweaks checkbox to enable the plugin to do it thing on that specific page

    The home page is a special case in that if you do NOT have a static page as the home page that there is no place to set Genesis Dambuster settings for just the home page; the default settings are applied to the Home Page. In the next release, v1.6 I will add a section that allows the Dambuster settings to be configured for the Home page which is different from the default settings.

    Hey Russell, I updated the plugin and it stripped out my background image on my whole website. This just happened a few minutes ago! Now it is white with no image present and i can not figure out why it would do this. Any ideas?

    Genesis Dambuster only removes the elements that you ask it to. There is no facility to affect the “whole website”. It can only affect individual pages and only when you “Enable Tweaks” on that page.

    Have you clicked the checkbox “Remove Background” on the “Background” tab?

    There is a cuastomized version of Dambuster out there that does affect every page however it is not supported by me. Maybe you ar eusing this version? Or maybe you have used some of Dambuster Hooks to switch on Dambuster on more pages than intended?

    I do plan to add improved support for site-wide settings, home page settings and internationalization in the next major release v1.6 later this month

    @hightechbranding – please post a URL of your site and we can look at it and Russell or I will look at it and tell you what is wrong.

    Yes it removed the background image from all the pages that I have tweaks enabled on. It is white now rather than the texture repeat i have. The backgound will be shown behind the header as well in the content area. http://www.outdoorvacationguide.com This happened as soon i updated the plugin last night. Thanks Johnny

    Hi Johnny,

    Thanks for the clarification.

    I can see what is happening now.

    Genesis Dambuster is not stripping out the background image – it is overriding the background as usually when doing a Beaver Builder landing page you would want clear out the theme defaults.

    The “Remove Background” feature in Dambuster works with the usual WordPress method of theme customization to add a custom background which is using the Theme Customizr.

    However Dambuster does not cater for hard coding of background images from the Media library in the style.css as this is a non-standard way of adding a background image.

    As the theme is non-standard, you need to tweak your theme’s style.css as follows and the background grid image should re-appear

    So please change your style.css from

    .site-container {
    	margin: 0 auto;
    	max-width: 1350px;
    	background-color: #fff;
    	background: url(http://www.outdoorvacationguide.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/grid.png) repeat;
    }

    To

    .site-container {
    	margin: 0 auto;
    	max-width: 1350px;
    	background-color: #fff;
    	background: url(http://www.outdoorvacationguide.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/grid.png) repeat!important;
    }

    Thanks for figuring that out, yeah most of the time i use background from my image folder, but instead of loading an image twice, it is easier to load into media library to use in beaver also if need be! Sometimes i have cases where I will use it in beaver from the library;) then i only have it loaded once for page speed!
    Thanks again you rock,
    Johnny
