Recommended Posts

Hello All

I have had some user feedback that the menu dropdowns are appearing 'behind' the quickslider on my homepage - http://shackletonepic2013.com

I have asked them to clarify the browser they are using etc as mine appear fine. But whilst I wait for this I wondered if anybody has experienced a similar issue and found an easy fix to ensure it works across the board?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Kris,

Apologies for the delay replying. We've just launched this new forum system and we're just getting accustomed to it.

I checked your site in IE9, Chrome, Safari and Firefox and the menu appears correctly in all. The only thing I can possibly think of is the possibility that they're looking in IE7 or IE8. Because those browsers don't use CSS3 or HTML5, it may be that the menus don't work in front of the slider. We've had no complaints about this, so I'm rather confused by their claims.

Unfortunately, there's no solution available since it's technically not broken.

Thanks for the reply Rob, it appears that several people are having the same issue and they are using IE8, which is still a very popular browser.

I don't want to have to use a work around and change the design of the site, as its been well received in general!

Is there any way to address CSS3 limitations with this browser by using a difference menu setup? Any suggestions would be great...

Cheers

Kris

PS I have applied the following advanced CSS, but this wouldn't be an issue right?

.navbar .navline > li > a { font-weight: bold;}

Hi,

Basically the NavBar utilises CSS3 and HTML5, something which Internet Explorer 8 doesn't really like. Therefore, you can try adding the custom CSS below and see if that resolves your case or use the Nav Classic menu.


.dropdown-menu {
position: absolute;
z-index: 9999 !important;
{
[/CODE]

      I think I may have installed pagelines pro incorrectly, and then used features incorrectly. I installed first platforms framework theme and then the child, thinking I could do setup for child later. I tried to set up a background image, and tried custom css feature in pagelines dashboard. I had mistakes in my css, and just thought that if I deleted the info in the css custom feature in pagelines dashboard that the new information would overwrite the old info. The background image didn't respond at all, probably because I didn't have the child directory renamed. I then tried to use the LSS plugin to create css and added more css, possibly, somewhere -sigh-. I never did change the background image and get it placed properly. I used a workaround and in nested containers I placed a background image which worked well enough, so I moved on to try to create my nav bar/ menu bar. When I go to the Menus panel, there is NO area where I can place a menu on a page. I have read and reread and re- re- reread the instructions for placing a menu. I've used the pagelines editor to place a menu, however only HOME shows up. I've been at this for many hours. I've since uninstalled all of my pagelines items and reinstalled, thinking that it would restore all my changes to default, but no, it is still all there, with all my unresolved issues. I am completely at a loss as to what to do next.

      How to make the Impulse menu sticky?
      Here is a site that seems like it is doing just that: http://www.manhattanperiodontist.com/
      Here is the site I am working on: http://boeriu.digitalvector.com/ 
      I have no problem showing the menu at the bottom, but when scrolling up it does not stick.  I tried to add Nav Pro menu but when I do that, it just shows on top and no matter what I try is not working as I want it to.
      Any suggestions?

      1) Toggle menu on mobile devices does not work properly, combination Chrome 56.0.2924.87 with Android 6.0.1

      2) Mobile / Default Menu > Set the primary/default navigation for your site. This will be used in the pop out mobile menu and as the default in navigation sections. Does not work.

      We are building a long-page scrolling site with Pagelines 5. Our menu is made with # links that go to a container's unique ID, e.g. container_ux7al6g
      This works, but it doesn't look great in the menu. Is it possible to assign a 'nice' # link, e.g. /#solutions ? 
      We used to do this in the DMS2 platform through a workaround, but that doesn't seem to be possible now. 
      Any suggestions?
