Some observations about the Shoutbox display. The image says it all, but if more info is required I can provide the detail …


Take my advice. I'm not using it!

Hi,

I'd guess at least some of this is themeing. If you try with &keep_theme=default, do all the problems happen?

wide_button is in BLOCK_SIDE_SHOUTBOX.

No problems in the default theme.

So it is certainly a themeing issue - not intuitive - especially since all the other blocks from the default theme display faultlessly in the new theme.

I'll keep hacking away, probably compromising and dropping the shoutbox from the display, but that isn't going to be an acceptable solution.

Take my advice. I'm not using it!

Still no further forward with this one. Had hoped that 5.0.0 would have addressed the issue. Can't understand why the iframe refuses to be constrained by the width of the panel.

Any ideas?

Thanks for the 'heads-up' Alex.

I'll have a look at that route ….

Alex,

I need some help with this one.

I've tried CSS (specifically on .expandable_iframe) and tried to introduce in-line CSS (type="margin: 0, auto;) into BLOCK_SIDE_SHOUTBOX_IFRAME.tpl without any success.

Any suggestions would be welcome …

Take my advice. I'm not using it!

Update:

Alex has been having a look at my issue and, through the exchange of several PT's, has nailed the problem. Not fixed - just nailed it.

Problem: I built the fixed-width template by entering the width parameter in the .re_body CSS property, and now other things are being affected, not least of all iframes, which is the case for the Shoutbox.

I now need to re-build the template by calling the fixed width in the ID body_inner ---- if only I could find it.

Pointer, somebody ...

Take my advice. I'm not using it!

Hi,

Glad you found the route cause.

It's not in the CSS by default, but easy to add.

Code

#body_inner {
}

I'm going to add a [RESOLVED] to this thread, not due in small part to Alex (and Chris for persevering), AND the 'fixed-width-tute' which I should have read in the first place.

Take heed, 'themers' and 'modders'!

Here is the proof …



 :thumbs:

P.S.
I gifted Alex a few points for his invaluable advice and encouragement, but didn't give Chris any. If I gifted Chris points each time he came up with the solution I would be bankrupt by now. So, there!

Take my advice. I'm not using it!
