Theme Cutting Off Facebook "like" Box Comment Drop-Down

Recommended Posts

Hello, when I install a like button in the content itself (for example in the first paragraph of this post: http://www.danoah.com/2011/11/im-christian-unless-youre-gay.html) the drop-down is cut off and doesn't display properly after a user clicks like.

Google searches lead me to believe that there is a problem with the CSS somewhere. Any idea how I can fix that?

Thanks, Dan

Dan, I'm not sure why it's doing that. Very weird, I dare say. I'm looking into it and should have some answers by Monday or so. Unfortunately, I'm a hurricane evacuee at the moment, so if I don't answer this again, please bump it to one of my colleagues.

Hi there, the buttons seem to be using inline css which specify the width and height. I'd imagine these settings are built into the widget/plugin somewhere. At the moment it's showing a height: 86px & width: 49px.

I can't any css fixes for this other than the inline options. I'd say email the plugin author and see if he has a fix for the css or a container he can suggest we target.


Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

Thanks for the reply. I don't use a plugin or inline CSS for these with the exception of float:right and padding (this problem happens when I eliminate the inline). I simply copy the code from Facebook's developer site.

I've also tried setting the width higher in the plugin itself.

I'm being told this is definitely theme/css related so any help would be really appreciated.

Hi,

I don't use Facebook, so can you take a screenshot of the issue please. Also, where abouts on Facebook did you find the code, can you link it please and where/how did you add it to your site.

One last thing, please do not Bump topics.

Hi. 

I have the same issue with the Facebook like button. I tried using the button with two different plugins, and the behaviour was the same. One of them is the Facebook plugin for wordpress, the other is called Facebook Button Plugin. The guys at the facebook developer forum claim this problem originates in the theme style.

here's a screen shot:

I'd appreciate a "custom code" solution...
I have no real knowledge of css coding. 

thanks a lot.

Looking at your site I am not seeing a Like button in the middle of the paragraph and when I tested all the Like's and Sends for Facebook they seemed to work for me (I'm in fireFox). Would it be possible to include a screenshot so we can troubleshoot, please?

Thanks.

My like buttons are before and after a post/page's content. I checked it both on latest chrome and safari on mac. The likes and sends are working, but the comment box is cut.  here's a full screenshot:

Please visit PageLines -> Site Options -> Custom Code -> Custom CSS/LESS and add the following to the box:

 

body .entry_content iframe {
    max-width: 617%;
}

Hope that helps!

Thanks Jenny. 
Well, it moves the whole comment box to the left and shows it completely. Which is good and functional.
Stil - Isn't there a "cleaner" solution? like making it appear where it should be? I'm no expert on css, but clearly something is overlapping the comment box.

Hi,

 

I think the solution Jenny provided is the best for the present.  You're able to test other CSS options using Firebug for Firefox or Chrome's Inspection Tool.

      Hi guys,
      every since Chrome introduce scroll anchoring (see chrome://flags) blog posts on my page start scroll automatically as soon as the user scrolls down a bit. It is super annoying and I don't know exactly what triggers the incompatibility with Chrome's latest feature that is supposed to improve usability.
      Since I don't know what causes it (Pagelines, or a Plugin), I would like to disable the feature using a CSS override that Google describes as follow:
      "Scroll anchoring aims to be the default mode of behavior when launched, so that users benefit from it even on legacy content. A CSS property overflow-anchor can disable scroll anchoring in part or all of a webpage (opt out), or exclude portions of the DOM from the anchor node selection algorithm. This property supports the following values when applied to an element E:
      overflow-anchor: auto (the default value) declares that the DOM subtree rooted at E is eligible to participate in the anchor node selection algorithm for any scrolling box created by E or an ancestor of E. overflow-anchor: none declares that the DOM subtree rooted at E is not eligible to participate in the anchor node selection algorithm for any scrolling box created by E or an ancestor of E." Do you guys happen to know how to use that property with the ROOT element so it applies to the whole page?
      Thanks
      Michael

      Regarding the 'global option' mentioned by Simon in this previous post (to turn off the facebook opengraph data if you are using another plugin that provides it) ...where is this option? I don't seem to be able to find it.
      Many thanks in advance.

      Hello,
       
      I'm basically a designer and understand a little on how to change CSS, etc., so please excuse my ignorance...  I recently upgraded to the newest platform from the DMS and my old DMS theme no longer functions.  I'm trying to replace the image slider that my Horizon Photography Theme (Nick Haskins) had created.  The Impulse image slider seemed the closest to what I need, but there are problems.
      It seems the the Impulse section for sliding images defaults to the image width, no the height.  I can change the Impulse stage height and width, but this does nothing to the internal content.  For instance, if I change the height to 200 pixels, the image remains the full width and only shows a cropped section.  I would like the ability to change the Impulse height, and have the image height fit space. 
      I've put this custom CSS in, but again, this only controls the stage height of Impulse:
      .pl-sn-impulse .pl-impulse-cell .cell-wrap, .pl-impulse-container, .owl-stage-outer {
        width: 100%;
      }
       
      Any suggestions welcome.  Thanks

      Hello. 
      I have just realized that CSS (Less plugin) , is not working..... I have disable all plugins (except PL CUSTOM LESS and PL5) , and ... it's not working ... 
      It's not the first time. Usually I had trouble with a plugin name Autoptimize , but it's Desactivate now , all memory have been purge, and it's still not working! :-/ So it's not from this plugin. 
      NB : When I am logged on my website, if i go on the black wordpress dashboard bar, go on the PL icon, clic on </> LESS/CSS => then the page suddenly apply the CSS .... But As soon that i reload the page, nothing. I think the problem is that the plugin LESS/CSS does not load properly (if I can say that with my simples words).
      I order to keep the site "good looking" I have temporally copy/paste all my LESS code in a plugin : Script n Styles that apply the LESS/CSS code... but it's not a solution for long time.
      Can someone help me ? Did I do something wrong ? Is it an update ?

      I'm sure this is just user fatigue...but where is the setting to delete the Facebook button in the Splash section of Teamwork? You'd think it would be in the Splash area, but it seems
      to be hiding elsewhere!  You can barely see it... I didn't even notice it until I changed the image.
