This only happens in Contemporary V1 theme. under resources, only the first link in the category is displayed. Is there anyway I can fix that?

Thanks

Thank you so much machinari. You seem to know quite a bit about this particular topic, so I would reallyt appreciate if u could explain a little further.

I'm also using Contemporary V1. You mentioned the topicoption.thtml and topicoption_off.thtml. Could I tweek the 2 files and get it to work on IE?

Thanks

the very spectacular contemporary theme was designed by Wooge... he will know much more about it than I if you want to try and contact him.

anyway, contemporary_v1's topicoption_off.thtml file looks something like this:
Text Formatted Code
                <div class="boption-off">{option_label} {option_count}</div>
        <!-- {topic_image} --!>

 

You need to get rid of the exclamation point that is meant to close the commented section of this code. make it look like this:
Text Formatted Code
                <div class="boption-off">{option_label} {option_count}</div>
        <!-- {topic_image} -->

 

let me know if that helps at all. If it does, you may want to let Wooge no of this bug.
Your other option would be to use the standard template files or a variation of them just as knuff suggested in the other thread.

Thanks for your help. I tried removing the exclamation mark but that didn't work. I also replaced topicoption_off.thtml from Contemporary by the same file from professional but that didn't help either. Any other suggestions will be greatly appreciated. I aked the same question on the theme's offiicial site but nobody responded. Any idea how I can reach him?

thank you,

try removing the "onclick" from topicoption.thtml.
I cant see anything else in the code that might be causing this problem...
removing the '!' worked for me.

sorry I couldn't be more help

Hi,

Try replacing both files.

topicoption.thtml and topicoption_off.thtml

This did the trick for me.
Since it's an active link that is dropped and not the one currently in use, maybe just topicoption.thtml might work, but replacing the two, does the trick.

Thank you Boris. I'm glad it worked for you. I replaced both files by the same ones from Professional, but nothing happened. I even deleted both files and nothing happened...The links page was exactely the same. What's their purpose then?
I'm also thinking that it might be the css file, since I had to paste the forum css in it. Maybe I screwed it up in the process. Is that possible?

Thanks

Okie, it seems we have some confusion here Mr. Green

Both Machinari and me were talking about the "resource" aka "topics" block you normally find on the top left side of your main page.

From your last comment, I guess you have a problem with the links / web resources file - links.php ? Correct ?

Ifso it´s most probably a different template issue.
Do you have a link to explain your example ?

Best Regards,
Boris

You are right. My issue is with the web resources page (links.php). Here's axonz's resources page http://www.axonz.com/links.php

They have the same problem. The links show up perfectly on Firefox, but not on IE.

Thank you for being so helpful.

OK,

This is the original axonz linkdetails.thtml

Text Formatted Code
<li>
  <span class="normal"><strong><a href="{link_url}">{link_name}</a></strong> ({link_hits}) {link_edit}</span><br>
  <span class="normal-small">{link_description}</span>
</li>

<!-- {link_actual_url}  --!>

 


I replaced that one with (from the standard professional one)

Text Formatted Code
<li>
  <strong><a href="{link_url}" title="{link_actual_url}">{link_name}</a></strong> ({link_hits}) {link_edit}<br>
  {link_description}
</li>

 


I guess just dropping the last ! will also do the trick.

Text Formatted Code
<!-- {link_actual_url}  --!>

Yuppz.

Did a quick search on the clean theme and there are 3 of them.

Text Formatted Code
----------------------------------------
Find '--!>' in '..\web\layout\Contemporary\topicoption_off.thtml' :
<!-- {topic_image} --!>
----------------------------------------
Find '--!>' in '..\web\layout\Contemporary\calendar\eventdetails.thtml' :
<!-- {event_state_name} {event_state_only}   {event_state_name_only} {event_edit} {event_edit} {event_edit} {event_type} --!>
----------------------------------------
Find '--!>' in '..\web\layout\Contemporary\links\linkdetails.thtml' :
<!-- {link_actual_url}  --!>
 


So check the calendar if you are using it as it will most probably also break under IE.

Greetz,
Boris
