Clear as mud. I’m with spash99 on this. I just purchased, and the documentation is incomplete, and the inability to easily control the background color is just poor.
While I appreciate the fact that this is a VC plugin, it’s really missing the mark.
If you are using specifically in VC on a page (not sitewide), sitewide controls have no affect on anything. Additionally, there is no ability in the VC plugin options to control colors at all.
The fact that you need to use your own css to do this is a major oversight on your part.
