I get quite a lot of requests for people to be able to PT others directly from a post.
Well as we all know the function is already there in the form of a whisper button.
However many of my users are on smart phones and tablets and the mouse over function does not work at all - so it is very difficult to see those buttons.

Can someone point me in the right direction as to where the CSS (I assume it is a CSS setting) code is that responds to the mouse over, so that I can make the buttons permanently visible.

Yes. We fixed this already in the default theme.


.post_buttons:hover a, body.touch_enabled .post_buttons a {
   {$BETA_CSS_PROPERTY,opacity: 1.0;} display: inline-block;/*Needed for IE8*/
Would have previously only used the .post_buttons:hover a selector.

touch_enabled is set in JAVASCRIPT.tpl:


function script_load_stuff()
   if (typeof window.TouchEvent!='undefined') document.body.className+=' touch_enabled';

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
