HowTo: Get rid of the spinner on the startpage

When you have created a Custom Startpage from your Silver Essence Portal, you might run into the situation that the spinning loading animation doesn't go away. Here's what to do about that.

Get rid of the spinner on the startpage

This happens because we add the spinning loading animation in the background. So if you have created a Custom Startpage that takes some time to load, the user will know the application is still busy.

Your page will be shown on top of our background. And by default, a webpage has a transparent background. Therefor, you will see the spinning loading animation in the background. 

So to get rid of it, give a background-color to your Custom Startpage. You can do that in your CSS code in the body class.

body { background-color: #FFFFFF; }

Or you could do this in the Body element:

<body style="background-color: #FFFFFF;"/>
