Somebody asked in another thread about how to remove a twitter feed. That had me hunting for the ones on my site. Fruitless minutes later it seems that I don't actually have the feeds displayed. I would like them back, so any advice will be welcome.

Of course, if I knew how they disappeared, it would go partially towards answering his question as well.



All offers welcome … !!

 :o




Update:
I do try to help myself, but sometimes I can't see the wood for the trees. Not necessarily this case. I've found where the 'screen_actions' call is made in BLOCK_MAIN_SCREE_ACTIONS.tpl, but cannot understand why all the ones prior to 'google_plusone' are being ignored. To clarify - no overrides in place!

Not only do you help yourself but you go to great lengths to help others as well. You are one of the most helpful, valued members here.

Maybe I misunderstood the other thread, I thought he was asking about removing a block.

Wish I had an answer for you on this one…

My memory is a little bit hazy, but I remember for some reason we changed how this works in the CSS a while back, possibly it landed in v8. This is the latest CSS for this stuff:

Code


#screen_actions_outer {
   margin: 20px 0;
}

#screen_actions {
   overflow: hidden;
   width: 100%;
}

#screen_actions div {
   margin-{!en_right}: 20px;
   background-repeat: no-repeat;
   float: {!en_left};
}

#screen_actions div a {
   padding-{!en_left}: 20px;
   height: 1.7em;
   display: inline-block;
}

I'd particular look to see if:

Code

   display: inline-block;
is there.

Thanks for that. I looked, particularly, for the 'div' reference and found that the whole '#screen_actions div a' property was missing!

I now have them all back, but I need to do a bit more work to identify 'why' and find find out 'how' to edit the display so that they all behave in the same way as the 'google_plusone' item. I think the attachment is self-explanatory if you focus on the cursor:




thanks

The Google +1 one is pretty much autonomous, we're not doing that in ocP.

OK.

I've played around with introducing social media links into their own containers when building my 'themes', so I might have another look to see whether it is possible to shoehorn those links into that area so that they behave like Google+.

But I won't be spending a LOT of time banging my head against the proverbial brick wall. If anybody is waiting for Fletch to have an epiphany, don't hold your breath!
