    Romik — I backed up my current Prod site last nite, loaded it onto my dev site and only had to tweak a few options to get it close to looking the same. The only thing I can’t get to work properly is the Post Slider on the Homepage. It does scroll the latest posts of the category that I chose to display, but it does not show the post’s thumbnail image. It just shows two gray boxes.

    Also, I think there is a little cosmetic glitch with the dashboard that shows up when I use the latest version of Firefox 63.0.3 on my MacBook Pro. When I go to Customize->Posts Slider, about 1/4″-1/2″ of the box on the left under “Customizing Posts Slider” is scrolled off the page to the left – even at full screen. It does not do this with Safari or Chrome.

    Lastly, I had some Additional CSS to give the homepage sliders a nice blue gradient but that does not seem to be working anymore either. Other than those items, I think all is good. I looked around the new section “CUSTOM FRONT PAGE BUILDER” but don’t see anything there that might get rid of the black background or show the post thumbnail image on the Posts Sliders. Maybe the code in this Additional CSS I mentioned above is no longer applicable to the Post Slider:

    font-family: ‘Roboto’, arial, sans-serif;
    color: #51545c;
    font-size: 20px;
    line-height: 20px;
    font-weight: bold;
    letter-spacing: 0px;
    }

    .menu-back {
    background-color: #03e1bf;
    background: -webkit-gradient(radial, center center, 0, center center, 460, from(#03e1bf), to(#0367bf));
    background: -webkit-radial-gradient(circle, #03e1bf, #0367bf);
    background: -moz-radial-gradient(circle, #03e1bf, #0367bf);
    background: -o-radial-gradient(circle, #03e1bf, #0367bf);
    background: -ms-radial-gradient(circle, #03e1bf, #0367bf);
    }

    If you need admin access on my dev site, let me know and I’ll turn on your UserID there.

    Roman,
    Also notice the difference in the Menu between my current prod site and the dev site running 2.9.alpha. I don’t see anywhere to change the background highlight color of the menu items as you hover over them. And also, I don’t see the smooth scroll option for menu items anywhere. When you scroll scroll up/down the dropdown menus, they jitter and jump instead of scrolling smoothly like on my prod site.

    And for some reason the NEWS page, which has the Posts, now shows the Posts Slider above all the posts even though I have it set to only display on the HOME page. I can’t find where to turn that off on the NEWS page. I think that I’ve looked at every menu item under Customize at least 2-3 times now but I can’t find it anywhere!

    Thanks again,
    -chuck

    It does scroll the latest posts of the category that I chose to display, but it does not show the post’s thumbnail image. It just shows two gray boxes.

    You need to have set a featured image in the post in order to display it in the post slider. I set one for you as an example.

    When I go to Customize->Posts Slider, about 1/4″-1/2″ of the box on the left under “Customizing Posts Slider” is scrolled off the page to the left – even at full screen. It does not do this with Safari or Chrome.

    is this issue in customizer or front end view too? Can you provide screenshot for this issue please?

    Lastly, I had some Additional CSS to give the homepage sliders a nice blue gradient but that does not seem to be working anymore either. Other than those items, I think all is good. I looked around the new section “CUSTOM FRONT PAGE BUILDER” but don’t see anything there that might get rid of the black background or show the post thumbnail image on the Posts Sliders.

    This you can set under Customize -> Styling -> Header Block -> Color Scheme of The Header Block Area

    Also notice the difference in the Menu between my current prod site and the dev site running 2.9.alpha. I don’t see anywhere to change the background highlight color of the menu items as you hover over them. And also, I don’t see the smooth scroll option for menu items anywhere. When you scroll scroll up/down the dropdown menus, they jitter and jump instead of scrolling smoothly like on my prod site.

    These options are available under Customize -> Styling -> Menu -> Menu Hover Font Color and Customize -> Header -> Menu -> Menu Item Hover Effect

    And for some reason the NEWS page, which has the Posts, now shows the Posts Slider above all the posts even though I have it set to only display on the HOME page. I can’t find where to turn that off on the NEWS page.

    It’s because the News page is set as the home of the blog. I corrected it for you by Additional CSS 😉

    the featured image size by default is 400x300px for the posts slider. The theme will auto crop and resize them if you upload images with higher resolutions.

    For the menu hover background color please use something like in Additional CSS:

    .navbar-nav li:hover {
        background: red;
    }

    about the customize issue, it’s quite hard to determine the problem, as on my Win 10 and Firefox it shows just fine. Have no chance to test on an Apple device :(. Isn’t that a cache issue?
