Color Bands on Right/Left Side of the Slider

I’m perplexed as to why on a widescreen of a computer, there are violet vertical bands of color on the right and left sides of the slider. I don’t have a background color set, and I can’t find anywhere where this violet color is coming from. I am using the Unite theme by Colorlib.

    Hi Chicago,

    Do you have a public URL where we can take a look at what’s going on?

    Hi Chicago,

    That’s odd. Hm. Would it be possible for you to send me an export for this widget? To do this please open up the linked page in the editor and click the Layout button in the Page Builder toolbar. Then click import/export and then click download. Please upload the export to a 3rd party file hosting site such as teknik.io.

    Regardless, please add the following CSS to WP AdminAppearanceCustom CSS, you’ll get our custom CSS editor. Add the following CSS:

    .sow-slider-image-wrapper {
    	max-width: none !important;
    }
    

    You might also need to install the SiteOrigin CSS Editor.

    Thank you. The CSS worked.

    I’d be happy to send what you requested, but I really don’t understand the directions.

    What does this mean: “open up the linked page in the editor?’

    If you mean just open to the page on the back end, I did not see anything on the layout bar that said import/export. If you have some screenshots, that would help.

    Yes.

    The import buttons aren’t directly on the toolbar. Please click the Layout button:

    Hi,

    Oddly, this issue isn’t occurring for me with the provided layout. Regardless, I would give the previously provided CSS a try as it should allow for the slider to work without issue. If it doesn’t, can you try disabling all non-SiteOrigin plugins and see if this fixes the issue? You’ll need to clear all your caches after disabling your plugins.

    If it does fix the issue, then try re-enabling your plugins one by one until the issue comes back. This procedure will help diagnose which plugin is causing the issue.

    Once we know that, we’ll be able to look at what might be causing the conflict and either solve the problem or help you find an alternative plugin.

    If you aren’t using a SiteOrigin theme, then you can also try temporarily switching to one of the default WordPress themes to see if the issue is theme related.

    Hi Alex,

    You must have missed where I said that the CSS worked. We are grateful.

    As for disabling plugins, I’ve often seen that mentioned as a solution for things. When you disable a plugin, even temporarily, that is supporting page or post development, doesn’t that break the page/post?

    Hi,

    Ah. Sorry, I somehow missed that. Great to hear that helped mate!

    As for disabling plugins, I’ve often seen that mentioned as a solution for things. When you disable a plugin, even temporarily, that is supporting page or post development, doesn’t that break the page/post?

    For the vast majority of plugins/themes, it’s perfectly safe to temporarily disable the plugin or change theme as developers understand there are legitimate reasons for temporarily disabling plugins or changing themes. Sometimes a plugin or theme is poorly made and can’t handle this but that’s an issue with the specific plugin/theme itself – if they rely on a third party plugin or theme, they should be running checks to ensure that dependency is present.

    As always though, your best bet would be to create a backup before running a plugin conflict test (or doing any updates or major changes). That way even if something does go wrong, you can use restore the backup.
