In the last 24 hours I’ve noticed that of my recent GP site builds the logos (which are SVGs) and the many of the default SVG icons within GeneratePress/GenerateBlocks are all looking very poor, with no smoothing in Chrome and Edge browsers (Firefox though seems fine) on PC.
Is it possible that GeneratePress needs some base CSS tweaks in the future to help render these SVGs so they’re smoother? These are my poor assumptions, not being aware what’s changed with how the browsers are displaying SVGs and aware it may not be directly an issue with GP.
Can happily feedback further info if helps to debug things.
Thanks in advance.December 3, 2021 at 5:59 am #2037065DavidStaffCustomer Support
Not something i have noticed, although Chromium browsers are the worst when it comes to SVG rendering. There aren’t many CSS properties that can be applied to an inline SVG ( which GB icons use ). Got any examples i can see ?December 3, 2021 at 6:16 am #2037090CarlDecember 3, 2021 at 6:26 am #2037101DavidStaffCustomer SupportDecember 3, 2021 at 7:12 am #2037145Carl
Thanks. It works fine for me on iOS devices and Firefox but this change has thrown me.
I don’t know enough about browser updates but assume it’s related to Chromium. Curious if they’ve changed the rendering model. Working out if it’s then a browser bug or it can be altered somehow, as to me it looks really poor.
I appreciate this may not be a direct GP issue.December 3, 2021 at 8:07 am #2037339DavidStaffCustomer SupportDecember 3, 2021 at 8:15 am #2037352Carl
Perfect. Look forward to hearing how it looks for them too.
If you previously looked at my Emedias.co.uk site, that isn’t built on GeneratePress (though now I’m converted I’m sure it’s only a matter of time) but has the issue too.December 3, 2021 at 8:30 am #2037368DavidStaffCustomer SupportDecember 3, 2021 at 11:17 am #2037541December 4, 2021 at 2:33 pm #2038526Carl
Thanks Ying. When I get back in the office I’m going to boot up another couple of PCs to check if there’s any further clues if browser or OS related.December 4, 2021 at 3:29 pm #2038561YingStaffCustomer Support
Keep us updated Carl 🙂December 5, 2021 at 4:17 am #2038843Carl
I’ve found the fix and it’s software/GPU related.
I tested on another PC which worked and did a little further testing. Basically some tweaks I had made to the NVIDIA control panel (for my graphics card) related to performance (to aid gaming) then affected those two browsers for how they display SVG graphics!
I had changed the setting from quality to performance BUT on changing it back, on loading up the browsers they then showed the SVGs as they should be!
Apologies for taking up your time. Hopefully this may help the rare person who experiences the same issue!December 5, 2021 at 12:08 pm #2039292YingStaffCustomer Support
No worries, it’s good for us to know as well 🙂
I’m sure it’ll be useful for somebody.
