Styles changed after EventON 2.5 upgrade?

We recently tried to upgrade to EventON v2.5 (from v2.4.10) and all the EventOn related styles change, instead of dark background, they went went and similar.  We insure that the styles were identical in the MyEventON–> Styles, including to re-submitting the contents.

We haven’t made any changes to our theme styles.css and the only change was the upgrade to 2.5, as a result we had to downgrade back to 2.4.10, which resolved the issues.

Were there significant changes to the CSS, if so, could you provide any details that I could pass along to my style dev?

Thank you.

      Any thoughts as to why the upgraded version (v2.5) is overwriting my CSS that works well with v.2.4.10?

      Sorry for the delay.

      Yes, there has been some style changes on latest update.

      However, I am not sure where you are experiencing this issue particularly.

      Can you be specific and let us what changes you want to make please?

      Also, if you can attach screenshots, it will be very helpful.

      Just by upgrading to EventON v2.5, my theme colors were changed notably. As a result, I returned to v2.4.10 to make time for more testing and of course post a help desk inquiry.

      Recently I started testing more and upgraded to v2.5 (with v2.5.1 patches) and selected the
      option ‘Write dynamic styles to header’ to YES, doing such returned my theme colors/style to a
      similar display as presented in v2.4.10, although my event background image is now displaying a white background despite the image using transparency.

      What I found weird is that I started taking screen shots, first was with EventON v2.4.10 with ‘Write dynamic styles to header’ set to NO, then I upgraded to v2.5 (or v2.5.1) with ‘Write dynamic styles to header’ set to YES, see the attached screen shots, you’ll see the subtle differences, beyond just the font, which as I understand, can be changed back to the original styling.

      That said, when I attempted to switch ‘Write dynamic styles to header’ to NO and show how radically the first time I upgraded to v2.5 had changed my CSS/styling, it didn’t revert to the display presented when I initially upgraded to v2.5, so I cleared browser cache, purged SG Cache, purged my hosting cache and oddly enough the ‘Write dynamic styles to header’ has no impact at all now. That seemed weird, I may just set it to YES as a precaution.

      The first screen shot is EventON v2.4.10 with ‘Write dynamic styles to header’ to NO.

      The second screen shot is EventON v2.5 (2.5.1 patched) with ‘Write dynamic styles to header’ to YES.

      To resolve the white background, the following had to be added:

      .evo_metarow_directimg, .evcal_evdata_row {
      background-color: #282828 !important;

      Although I have no idea why the ‘Write dynamic styles to header’ seems to have no effect now.  Originally if it was set to NO, my entire color/CSS layout was changed, then I set it to ‘YES’ and it resolved the majority of the problem, however in setting it back to NO, the original problem never returned.

      Umm you are using the slider addon in this page which is not one of our plugins you need to talk to the author about that. They probably haevnt made that addon compatible with eventon.

      But it seems to me like all the colors are back to normal for you https://www.pacifictracktime.com/ajde-test/

      We actually use EventON Calendar/Tickets in our primary page without the SliderAddon as well and it was impacted by the upgrade. it just happens that I sent screen shots of the event being called via ‘Lightbox’ from that plugin.  In any event, I had my CSS dev. make the necessary changes to our CSS, so yes, it should appear similar (or the same) as the v2.4.10 version.  One of those changes I posted above and I’ll post further information as to what else required modification.   The initial resolve was that of setting ‘Write dynamic styles to header‘ to YES, followed by tweaks in the CSS.

      Thanks for the follow-up!

      I m really sorry dont really get your point in your message. But please share screenshots pin pointing to styles changes in eventon 2.5 that had issues for you. Because your previous screenshots doesnt say much. SOrry may be its just me but please send comparative screenshots.

      And we have not modified write styles to header function at all in new version.

      Hi Ashan,

      Unfortunately I can’t recreate the issue and subsequenly post screenshots without undoing the corrective work that was performed, especially with a live site. That said, no worries, the primary fix was setting ‘Write dynamic styles to header‘ to YES and then making a change to our CSS, one of those changes needed was:

      .evo_metarow_directimg, .evcal_evdata_row {
      background-color: #282828 !important;

      I’ll ask my CSS dev. for the additional changes that were needed and will post accordingly.

      Thank you.
