Fan in action

It appears on the initial loading of the home page, the active poll in the sidebar is truncated/scrolling.

However, upon clicking a link (full poll shows) then returning to the home page, everything appears fine. There is plenty of room in the sidebar to show the entire poll.

Is this a setting?

Think you're visiting www.<domain> when your base url is just <domain>. That means the JS will be running off a different domain name to what the URL is, activating JS browser security and blocking the auto-sizer for the poll frame.

You need to set up a .htaccess redirect, if you Google about redirects you should find more.

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.
