Bug Description

I could work around if you tell me the name of the images used by default to replace it.


I'm not sure what you mean. Text and RSS regions effectively don't have background images. The whole layout does.

In more detail, Internet Explorer is used to render those two media types - and it's impossible to have Internet Explorer give us a transparent background, so part of the layout background is used to give the appearance of the back of the page being transparent. There's no image file you can modify to change that.

I am including a print screen of my layout. The background I am referring is the violet dots and paterns in the RSS feed region and text region.

Thanks for your response.


Hi Omar

This is a known issue - detailed in the release notes. Background images with transparency or the capacity for transparency (ie PNG, GIF) aren't rendered correctly. If you convert your background to a JPEG (jpg) image it will work fine.

Please tell your development team that increase the priority to this issues. I hope to keep the Xibo software in my digital signage project. This the unique concern about the application. I found it very simple and friendly to use.

Thanks for your support.


Hi Omar

This bug is of low priority because there is a reasonable work around - that is to use a JPEG image for the background. You loose nothing by having that image in a JPEG format. As such, this won't be addressed as part of the 1.0 series of releases.

It may be addressed in future versions of the Windows client, and has already been addressed in the cross-platform python client.
