We have corrected the issue with not being able to adjust the text-color within a page builder region on content pages. There was a theme style overriding the page builder setting.

We have corrected the footer widget areas where colors could not be set within the widget. The footer text colors appear to be working within the theme editor, but there was a style rule that was overriding the widget font color settings.

Banners font-colors should now adjust to Theme Editor settings found here: Marketing Banners > BAnner Font Color.

The column layout within the Main Nav dropdown should now adjust according to Theme Editor settings found here: Main Navigation > Main Sub Nav > Main SubNav Column Count.

Magnifying glass icon color within Searchbar should now adjust according to Theme Editor settings found here: Header > Search Bar Icon color

Disabling the “Show Focus Outline” within theme editor should now disable the focus element globally both color and border thickness, which should prevent items from shifting.

Changing the theme editor setting Main Navigation > Navigation Alignment from left to center should now function properly.

The theme editor, “hover to open” main navigation setting appears to be functioning properly after testing. Note: you do need to click the “Preview” tab vs. “Design” when viewing within the Theme Editor in order for hover actions to fuction.

Functionality Revisions:

We have corrected the duplicate content within the last 3 footer widgets. This was a matter of simply uniquely naming the global regions there.

Compare Page: corrected font-size in product card sku & brand

We have developed a fix for the incorrect image displaying within the main image area in quickView modal after clicking “quickview” on the product page.

Compare Checkbox + Comparte Text Click-ability. “Compare” text & checkboxes should now be clickable in both list & grid views, with list by default, and grid by default.

{ search_query } code displaying on store after searching has been resolved: This is a new issue that popped up on the BigCommerce side, and they reached out and provided a solution by removing the single quotes around the search_query within the en.json file.

The View details button is higher than than the other. We have set the element .card-text.no-price to height: auto. This should correct the issue of the call for pricing element being overlapped by the button.

News & Information not showing on search results: This has been corrected and should now display content on search results pages when clicking the “News & Information” link.

We have updated the Checkout Page Shipping Address font within the checkout dropdown to be the body font-color. This should resolve the font not being visible.

Top menu does not update to show the user is now logged in: We have eliminated the account login/logout feature within the topMenu on the checkout page ONLY.

Checkout page flex grid seems to be causing an issue with the promotion input box. Checkout page – Promo input field should now be half the width of the element shared with the “apply” button.

Mobile checkout modal form opens off screen and can not be closed. This should now appear centered within the screen.

Navigation on mobile it redirects you to the main homepage. The mobile menu button will now toggle the dropdown on the checkout page just like all other pages.

Issue with varying body-widths not floating the right-hand sidebar on the product pages properly should now be resolved.
