Home Page is blank until user scrolls
I'm experiencing a bug in which the home page is blank when it first load. Content only appears when the user scrolls down.
See my staging site at
It seems to only be an issue for the page designated as the "front page"
Hoping to get this fixed ASAP! Thanks.
Just to provide some further information: It seems to be related to the "intro" options to some degree. I had never made any changes to this section, but while trying to work out this issue I am realizing that altering options in this menu alters how this bug occurs.
I was hopeful that the "Hide after waiting" option set to zero would fix things, but it does not.
I did find that setting the Opacity to zero does solve the blank screen at first issue. But it presents another one: I am not able to click on the elements on the menu at the top.
Thanks for any insight into ironing this out!
One final note: I am leaving the setting at opacity 0% for now. So when you go to the page, you will NOT see the blank screen as I reported in the initial bug. But you will see that the bug I mentioned in my last post (that the menus are not clickable). I figured this would be a better state to leave it in for any troubleshooting.
Sorry for the multiple posts. Looking forward to any insight you can offer. Thanks!
After a lot of work on this, I think I've worked things out.
The later bug I described occurs when transition is set to zero. If it is set to one or higher links are clickable after the intro dissapears.
A usability suggestion: You could also consider making the "set to zero to turn off" note more clear as to what it does. I assumed it would turn off the entire intro feature. The confusion in part comes because the toggle for turning off the feature is found in an entirely different section/menu.
One item that still seems to be a bug (though it's not nearly as critical) is that if an intro text is entered, but an image is not, the "hide after waiting" element does not seem to work at all.
thank you for letting us know.
You are right. There seems to be a problem with the text overlay.
Thank you for pointing that out.
thanks for the heads up, i will need to fix this.
amazing content on your website!
Thanks @arminunruh . Still a big work in progress (and lots of learning about Wordpress), but I'm loving the options I have with your theme!
