Hi everybody !

Yesterday there has been an unannounced update on the Instagram team, which caused the Essential Grid’s Instagram Feed plugin to stop working.

We bring you our most sincere apologies for this situation! We totally understand how inconvenient this is, and we totally relate to any frustration and disappointment it might cause. Our development team is in contact with the Essential Grid and Instagram developpers to find a fix that we’re going to implement shortly. We will do our best to release a fix within the next 24hours but once again, we’re dependent from the Instagram team for now.

Stay tuned.


How to change the background color or background image

Our theme has many ways to change background images or colours.

Changing the overall background:

To change the overall background image or colour go to the Theme options dashboard > Look and Feel. You can set the overall background by either uploading a background image or only change the background colour.



Changing a background on a specific page:

We can also select an individual background on a specific page. When we edit a page, we can select a background in the 'page setting' panel. 

  1. Upload your image in the "Background Image" or change the main background color.
  2. If you want to use a background image, make sure to set a main background color as well. It's very important. Also make sure that the 'Main Background Transparency' has the value to 0.



Changing a background on a specific row in a page:

So you want to change a background image to put your own image. Let say you want to change this image which is part of the homepage only:

Edit your page. then seek for the row where your background image should be contained. Click the little pen in the top right corner of the row, then click design tab. See screencast:

If you want to edit the height of the image, basically you will have to edit the height of the row's space. So click the little pen of the row to edit it. go to the design tab, and adjust the top and bottom padding according to your needs.
