Reproducing the Issue

  1. Theme Manager
  2. Fine Tune
  3. Background Image
  4. Upload an image
  5. Save

The Image is not reflected on the Home Page


Opacity of the background (100%) is causing the image to appear invisible.


Follow these steps to reveal the image in your home page:

  1. Theme Manager
  2. Fine Tune
  3. Placemat > Background Opacity
  4. Lower to whatever percentage you like and it will make the background more transparent, revealing the image behind.

In case the steps above don't turn the background image visible on Home Page, please follow the steps below:

  1. Go to Theme Manager and open the Default theme.
  2. Open Fine Tune > Landing page theme and Select a theme for landing pages as "Use this theme".
  3. Save the current theme.

For this theme option, the following explanation will show up if hovering cursor on it.

"Select a different theme to use for landing pages such as the Home page. If you prefer not to use a second theme, select "Use this theme" from the drop down menu."
