I don't know what happened, but today everything looks slightly different on our guildportal page.  I'm using a 'grey-leather' type background for all the content boxes.  It has generally been a very nice background.  Today, it shows up in most places, but not all.

It used to show up as the default background for Free form content, Categorized Links, Members Online, and Forum Activity (as well as everything else) - today, the ones I just mentioned are not getting the grey leather background.  Everything else on the page is, however.

I've gone in and cleared, saved, and re-entered the background into 'Content Containers Style' with no luck.  The file is hosted on guildportal (axiomfiles), so I know that's not the problem.

http://8thsin.guildportal.com if you want to look and see what I'm talking about.

Did they add a 'feature' that i'm missing?

Thanks for any help you can give.

Interesting.. I usually use Firefox, so I thought maybe I should check the page in IE.  The background is there a little bit more, but there are still 'spots' where black boxes are showing up.   It's wierd.

I had a similar issue when I was changing settings to test something out.

Under Styles and Colors, Page Styles, under Body Content, clear the Color box if there is anything in it. That fixed my issue, anyway. See if it helps.

Also, make sure there is nothing in the Color box in your Content Container Styles where you have your background image.

Thank you Ever so Much, Everdark.

That was indeed the problem.  I'm not sure why it started behaving badly just today/yesterday, as I'm sure I had a value in there before..  Maybe something to do with the gradient thing (that looks new).

Cleared out that field on the two with backgrounds, and it's working perfect!

Thanks Again.

You're very welcome.

Like you, I had values in there for a long time. Back to when I added the background image for the first time, I left them in incase I wanted to revert back. When I went to test a new background yesterday, I noticed it.

I agree, it is probably related to the new code that was added recently.

Looks like some of the new stylsheet-generating code isn't leaving out the background color attribute when a background image is present, which mebbe needs to be fixed with the next couple code pushes.  Have one going out today that will clean up the inbox/mail content type, but it's in build right now, so I can't add anything to that push at the moment.
