Feature page transitions and Firefox

8 posts in this topic

Hi, this is more an observation rather than a question, but I was wondering if you're aware of the fact that the feature page transition effects in StationPro don't work very well in Firefox (or Opera either)? Most of them look fine in IE, but in FF they get kinda jerky, there are extended white screens or the transition just generally doesn't work as it should. It's a pity as FF is by far the most popular browser in Finland, and it makes the choice of transition effects rather limited.

Apparently the same is true for Safari too...

Also the feature page seems to load funny in Opera - in the other browsers the page looks ok when a link to the page is clicked, but in Opera it looks like this feature.JPG and requires refreshing the page to appear normal. Here is a link to the actual page in question (just up for test purposes at the moment).

Might be an issue or conflict with a plugin, or your content. Have you tried deactivating plugins? If this is duplicated in the demo, then its probably an issue with the theme we should fix :)

Yeah, I think this is just one of the many differences in browsers and how they handle things. IE is almost always different that other browsers, mostly for the worse, sometimes for the better. Thanks, Bryan

Andrew, deactivating plugins doesn't seem to have any effect on the transitions or the way the page loads in Opera. However the custom code I've used to remove the sidebar on the highlight page seems to have an effect on how the page is loaded in Opera - if I remove the code, the page loads OK. I would want to remove the sidebar, so should I use a different code? At the moment it's

.page-template-page-feature-page-php #sidebar{display:none}
	
	.page-template-page-feature-page-php #highlight{background:none}
	
	.page-template-page-feature-page-php #maincontent{width:958px}

Bryan, I personally never use IE, but unfortunately most people do. In this case however IE is the browser where the transitions look the best.

Yeah, instead of the code you'll want to use the on page options as I described before to hide what you want. Thanks, Bryan

Sorry, but I don't see any such description? I am able to hide the sidebar, that's not the problem, the problem is that when I have it hidden the page loads as illustrated above. So what I was asking was if I should change the code somehow. I haven't been able to hide the sidebar in any other way than using a code...
