Anyone else getting some weird results with Firefox 3 and some 1.41 and 1.5 themes? Specifically, mutliflex3 is having problems with the left blocks on the main index.php in 1.41 and Colors 1.5 has problems with the menu-elements buttons in the header.

In IE7, Multiflex3 is OK, but the logo won't show up in Colors in IE7.

In FF2, everything is fine. I've tried different installations on different servers, so it doesn't look like it's a server or PHP issue.

Anyone? Buehler? Buehler?

I'm running FF3 and looked at the colors theme on the demo, everything appeared to be working okay with the menus. Can you be more specific?

Here's what I mean about the Colors theme in IE7 vs FF3: In IE7, the menu elements buttons in the header line up nicely: http://deliciousironing.com/files/Colors-IE7.png In FF3, they "break" down into the main content area: http://www.deliciousironing.com/files/Colors-FF3.png (I've set these up as URLs since it looks like the [img] tag is turned off.

I see what you mean now. You may want to contact Ben (Cordiste) over at http://www.geeklog.fr and explain it to him, since he was the one who originally made the theme. See what he has to say if he can fix it.

Michael

PS If he cannot, then let us know and perhaps someone can figure this out and put out an update.

How to run Firefox 2 & Firefox 3 at the same time

Step 1. Create a new profile for your Firefox 3 installation.
Go to the profile manager of firefox (type “/path/to/firefox.exe -profilemanager -no-remote” on the command prompt) and create a new profile called FF3.

Step 2. Download Firefox 3. And install it.

Step 3. Right click on the Firefox 2 icon and go to Properties. Add the following to the end of your target “-P default -no-remote”. This will make sure that whenever you run firefox 2, it opens in your default profile.

Step 4. Right click on the Firefox 3 icon and go to Properties. Add the
following to the end of your target “-P FF3 -no-remote”. This will
make sure that whenever you run firefox 3, it opens in your newly created, FF3
profile.

I'm not seeing any issues with Multiflex3 and FF3. Here's a screenshot of what I see. Can you provide more info about your specific problem?

Thx!

For theme colors it was a css issue with FF3

To fixe it I use
PHP Formatted Code

.clearfix {
    overflow:auto;
}


Seems to work fine now. Update Ver: 1.5.0.2 is available on Geeklog.fr with some others bug fixes.

Sorry. It turns out one of my users had made some alterations to the theme that were the source of the problem - used tables instead of divs.

Hello Michael,

Try to replace the 3 classes in the style.css by

PHP Formatted Code

.main-navigation {
 width:200px;
 background: url(images/leftblock-bg.png) top left repeat-y;
 border-bottom: solid 1px #BEBEBE;
padding: 0 0 10px 0;
 vertical-align:top;
}

.main-content {
 margin:0 0 0 10px;
}

.main-subcontent {
 width:185px;
 margin:0 15px 0 0;
 vertical-align:top;
}



How do you do to show images in the forum?

Thank you very much for the fast reply! I did as you said and it works. I am grateful. However, the left menu is in the correct position, but the formatting of the page has disappeared now. here is what i see: Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us what do you suggest? as far as posting images is concerned, it is simple: just upload your image to a public uploading site, for example imageshack.us, and then use the first option ("display thumbnail for websites"). Of course, you may remove the additional promo code. thanks again, michael

Did you changer only the 3 classes near line 1002 in the style.css? If do the same on a geeklog 1.4.1 and Multiflex3 theme everythink is ok on IE, FF and Safari. About picture, I was looking for [img] tag but with html seems to be ok Smile ::Ben
