Support » Fixing WordPress » Strange veil over my page – can you see it too?

  • Hello people,

    A strange thing has occurred. I just restarted my browser (Firefox) and a strange veil now covers half of my site ( When I refresh the page, the veil lifts for a few seconds, and then is back again. Am a bit baffled. Anyone have any idea what could cause this? Other internet sites look just fine.

  • Heh, water-skiing squirrels eh.

    Errr, sorry, no, I don’t see it. Can you post a screen shot?

    Looks fine for me in FF 3.5.3 on OS X.

    um….I’ve taken 2 screen hots, but I don’t know how to upload them to here?

    Try uploading it to a site like and pasting the link you get here.

    Your site validates both html and css. It looks fine in IE8 and FF3 so whatever issue you are seeing, no one else is.

    Nope, I don’t see anything. Sorry.

    Can only think it’s CTRL+A type highlighting, but I don’t see why it’d still occur after a page refresh.

    Uploaded images as directed, to imageshack, where I registered as ‘bolke’.

    Thank you for your troubles, alism, and you, mkissinger, for validating the code.

    I suppose it isn’t much of a problem if no one but me can see it. Though it still is sort of…disturbing.


    (I know it’s kmessinger. Just a very silly, dull jokelette.)

    Can you post the actual links to the images?

    Ha, oh. I didn’t do that very well, did I….

    Here’s the link to one image:

    And here to the second one:

    Second one’s a bit clearer, because there you can see where the veil stops and the rest of the page looks normal.

    Well, thanks for your interest in my silly page and my silly veil.


    Well, looks like I’ve found the answer, with a little help from Firebug. It appears to be a known issue. Found this on the web:

    The “ga_shade div tag” is an overlay to shade the website screen and is used by Google Analytics … However this brings out a problem, after disabling the overlay the shaded part of the website is still shaded and nothing can be clicked nor selected.

    There’s a way to remove it, too. Had to clear cookies from my site. Will probably have forgotten all needed passwords, but oh well, I Can See Clearly Now, the veil as gone.

    HAS gone. Geez.
