Hi

I am a new club member. Currently developing a site using the Oasis Template.  Great features

Two Issues:
1) The Tab1/2 modules shows images on local host but not when live. Have checked image file and modules in both administration modes and laa the same.
2) The floating menu allows for sub-menu drop-downs on front page, but on other pages it seems to run behind object and not clickable.

Site on http://www.randalstewart.com  (Admin privileges active). 

Attached find snip of Tab1/2 on local host

Hello,

1. The tab show modules are just custom html modules that pull images from wherever you have set them in the backend of the module. Your first image is being called relatively:

<img alt="" src="/images/tab9.jpg">

Try calling the full url, not relative.

2. This template is not designed for the floating menu because of the header configuration needing to be a specific size for the tab show and image and content fader to work properly. The floating menu feature is not designed to work with all templates.

Thanks for the answers.  Pity, I liked the floating menus.
On point one, when you say full url, do you mean:-

http://www.randalstewart.com/public_html/images/tab9.jpg
or must I use the server home folder www8.flk.host_h.net/public_html/images/tab9.jpg

Also, is there a way to give the menu more body with rounded corners?

Hello,

1) A full URL path is the path that you would enter in a browser bar to load the image. If you enter the URL in the browser bar and it doesn't load the image that means the path is incorrect.

2) You can add rounded corners by adding this to the custom.css file

#s5_nav li  {
border-radius: 15px !important;}

Hi Mike

Thanks for the response.  Your service is really great.

Tried the absolute reference (href' "), but it did not work.  Then I inserted the images on the live site, gave the same relative reference, but showed the photos.  I read that you only use the absolute reference when referencing another web url.  Anyway, it works.

The rounded corners work as well.
