Hi,

This issue are present, which result looking different in all the browsers including:

  • Firefox 3.5.8
  • IE 7.0.5
  • Opera 10.10
  • Safari 4.0.4

The 2 issues are:

  • The image that shows the tab is missing or shows an outline only, depending on the browser
  • Depending on the browser, there is "text" or an image of a "?" behind the text I can assign in the back-end Template parameters, "Drop-down Tab Text"

The URL where I am developing the site is:

http://www.billythecomputerman.biz/

This way you can see the variance between browsers.

Just my 2 cents...... I believe the image for the tab didn't upload correctly and might be the problem. I would have done some troubleshooting, but I am not sure what the name of the image file is.

Thank you!

Billy

Hello, it calls the following file:

http://www.billythecomputerman.biz/templates/bliss_styles_1_21/images/style1/button.png

I am not sure why this isn't showing on your site, I just checked the download and it's included. You can grab the file from the template's zip file and upload it to that location on your server. The ?'s may appear because the image is missing.

Hi Mike!

Thank you for showing me the path. I downloaded a fresh copy of the template (in case the original download got corrupted). Then I deleted the old file via my FTP (in case it was corrupt when I uploaded it) and I replaced it with a fresh file and it still shows the same. 

So I took it one step further to troubleshoot. I changed from style 1 to style 21 and the Same Thing occurs. Then I changed to style 4, Same Thing again. I have it on Style 4 right now if you want to see.

It seems like it isn't the button.png graphic but something else.

I will tell you what, for simplicity on all our parts........ I don't need the compartment to move up and down. I can "Leave it open" all the time so it is visible. Can I edit code within the templates/bliss/index.php file to make it stay open all the time?

Thanks!

Billy

Hello, the drop down is open by default so you can just hide the tab by adding the following to the bottom of the template_css.css file:

#s5_button, #s5_overlay {
display:none;
}

#s5_user4 {
margin-top:50px;
}

Mike,

I did that & the issue is solved. I also added a remark in case I or anyone need to edit the code again. Good coding and notes result in great web sites.  Smiley

It is a great feature but not needed in my application to have the tab available to be pulled up and down.

Thank you, have a great day!
