Web site issue - exposedvisions.com

Hello, finally got my site up and running but I'm running into a weird issue where the site will resize with noting showing but the site logo and a blank page as shown here: http://exposedvisions.com/galleries/pro … id=1&pid=1 Anyone know what's happening?

Also can someone check my custom CSS code for cleanliness, and/or that it's correctly written....

html,
  
/*Home page settings
====================================*/
 
body {
	background-image:url('../images/lgrey064.jpg');
	background-position:inherit
	 }

	
/*Drops down menu opacity
==============================================*/
.sub-menu {
	background-color:rgba(255, 255, 255, 0);
	}

.menu-item-has-children ul.sub-menu li {
    background-color:rgba(33, 33, 33, 0.6);
	}

main

/*Slideshow styling
======================*/
#slideshow img {
	border:1px solid black;
	box-shadow:4px 4px 8px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.5);
	}
	
	
	/*Photosweep image area settings
====================================*/	
		
	img.pswp__img {
	background: #ffffff;
	border:30px solid #ffffff;
    box-shadow:8px 8px 16px rgba(0,0,0,0.8);
    }
    
    
/*Photosweep large page background
====================================*/	 
  	.pswp__bg {
	background-image:url('../images/lgrey064.jpg');
	background-position:inherit
    }
 
/*Center caption under large image
================================================*/
.pswp__caption__center {
	text-align:center;
    font-size:1.2em;
    font-style:italic;
  }

It all seems to be working fine. Well everything seems to be working fine except for my odd issue. BTW this issue was popping up even before the custom CSS code, so....

Thanks

Re: Web site issue - exposedvisions.com

It's impossible to tell without actually seeing it happen. Can you link to a page that has this problem rather than just a screen shot of the problem?

By the way, you can include screen shots in forum posts. Just put the URL to the image between img tags:

[img]url to image[/img]

Re: Web site issue - exposedvisions.com

Your CSS is a little messy. the selectors "home" and "main" are separated from their children by comments. I don't think it effects functionality, but it makes it hard to read and therefore to troubleshoot if needed.

As I said it's the whole site. That's what the image was. It is not a "specific page"

And it happens randomly. It also clears when clicking another link, or leaving the site; thus sending you a link when it happens will clear the issue. 

I would suggest you check it yourself by clicking through the various links to see if it happens on your end. The issue usually happens when you run through all the top level links - from Home to Search. Once you hit search, hit Galleries, and the issue usually occurs then.  Again, the image you saw was that result.

Thanks.

Edit: Here's the image ev-issue.PNG

Here's the direct link: http://www.exposedvisions.com/Links/ev-issue.PNG Notice the address ends with Galleries.

Re: Web site issue - exposedvisions.com

the site looks fine. Are you referring to the width of the content? If so, change that in the page template under Page Layout

Re: Web site issue - exposedvisions.com

I checked all the top level links and some of the galleries. All pages look the same to me in Firefox. I'll check Chrome next

Well since my coding is a little rusty, can you clarify? - "home" and "main" are separated from their children by comments.

Do I remove the comments? Do I combine things? Should everything be in main, body?

It's why I asked my code to be examined.

Re: Web site issue - exposedvisions.com

Looks consistent in Chrome too. Have you tried all the usual things: clear browser cache, clear template cache?

html, body {
	background-image:url('../images/lgrey064.jpg');
	background-position:inherit
	 }

with the comments above the code

I'm not trying to be funny, but I don't think your reading my post. The Galleries page should look like this....

Galleries%20page.PNG

Not this...
ev-issue.PNG

This issue is the site randomly resorts to the above issue when running through the gambit of links. NOTICE the text is gone, as well as the thumbnail images. Also notice the site has "resized". That's the issue!

It doesn't happen all the time, but IT DOES randomly happen.  So yeah, it's not surprising you wouldn't see it running through the site once.

Hope I'm clearer.

Thanks.

Re: Web site issue - exposedvisions.com

I can confirm every time I hit the "Search" link and move to another link the issue occurs. Works like clockwork here. This under IE11, Windows 10.  It only happens with the "search" link.

Re: Web site issue - exposedvisions.com

I did read your post. I looked at all your top level pages and some galleries. Multiple times. I'm not seeing what you're seeing. But I'm not using IE11.
Works fine in Edge, Opera, Chrome, and Firefox

I tried going to search, entering a word, and then navigating away. No problems.

Sounds like it's an IE11 issue

Re: Web site issue - exposedvisions.com

my laptop still has IE11 and I checked there. I see the problem getting triggered. A page refresh cleared it.

Re: Web site issue - exposedvisions.com

Well it's definitely a confirmable issue under IE11 here. I can repeat the issue time and time again.  But NO, the issue does NOT happen in Edge at my end as well.

The issue also happens on my laptop as well, so we're talking two different machines. At any rate I'm just pointing out an issue between Search and IE11.

How to cause it:

Click Search, then scroll to Galleries without clicking anything, and the resize will occur.

Peace smile

Re: Web site issue - exposedvisions.com

I was only able to get it to happen that one time. Since then I can search and then navigate without problems. Tried closing and reopening IE11 but can't get it to happen again.

Thank you!

Yes, that is the issue; and though a page refresh clears it, it's still a repeatable issue.  Just something to be aware of.  And while you and I now know about it, it could be an issue for visitors to the site.

Thanks.
