Recommended Posts

Hi i have noticed an annoyance with my drop down menu and I can't figure out why its happening. If you hover over one of my nav bar menu button (with a drop down), and then slowly move the pointer arrow towards the drop down menu, the drop down menu jiggles and shifts.

Can anyone see the same issue? know whats causing it and how to fix?

Hi,

You have added your own styling to your Navigation (Nav Classic). This issue is most likely related to your custom CSS, I have just tested the functionality of a drop down menu on a fresh PageLines install and the Nav Classic, has no such issue.

Remove your custom CSS, should resolve the issue.

thats not really an option. Can you see what part of the custom CSS is causing an issue?

Well, Danny's positively correct that the error comes from custom CSS and no, we cannot see what CSS is causing it.

However, as an example under Listings, the first menu item 'jiggles'. The jiggle is simply an inconsistency in your CSS.

Check the CSS you created and make sure the numbers are all the same, ensuring the consistency of height, borders, font-sizes, etc. That's the solution.

Danny was also quite correct in asking you to remove custom CSS. He did not say to delete it permanently. His reason for doing so was to see if the removal of the custom css would yield any persistent problem. You could have copied it to a text file, removed it for testing and replaced it later, which would be the effective method of testing.

Ultimately, this is, as I mentioned before, just an error in your CSS code.

I removed all custom css from my site to see if the menu still has an issue, and it does. Any ideas what could be going on?

In order to remove the issue, i added the following code:


.submenu {

margin-top:-2px;

}



It seems that there was a space between the main nav button and submenu, and when the cursor would cross over that gap, the submenu would jiggle.

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.

      Over the last month I had extensive communications with the developer of the (premium) Anything Boxes section (in Pagelines store) (Adam Munns) and the developer of the WP Polylang Multilingual plugin (Frederic Demarle).
       
      This was because the following problem occurred:
      Anything Boxes showed all posts of two languages (Dutch and English) on the respective static frontpages for each language. It should of course have filtered posts for Dutch language on the Dutch frontpage and English on the English frontpage.
       
      The solution to this problem was simple in the end. When duplicating a page for use in another language the settings for Anything Boxes were not copied to the new page and I should have set these settings manually again on the new page. I wasn't aware of this, but it makes sense. Because of this the pages didn't know how to differentiate between posts from different languages.
       
      The dev of Polylang told me that Polylang is currently smart enough to synchronize metas like Featured images and page templates but it does not work out of the box with metas created by plugins and themes but (according to Frederic) it is rather easy to add them in the list using the filter 'pll_copy_post_metas'.
      He mentions that he is not sure that these 'PageLines Meta Settings' are stored in post meta but that would make sense according to him. He asks if the Pagelines dev team will be interested to support this feature in the future.
       
      I'm also wondering if you will consider adding Polylang translation support for manually editable strings like the 'Read more…' strings in Pagelines Settings.
       
      Well that's of course up to you but I thought to let you know to be able to take this into consideration. I also post this for other users in case they experience the same kind of trouble and are looking for an answer.

      Hi!

      I am using the shortcodes for tabs, as described in the documentation.

      When I insert the following code:


      [pl_tabs][pl_tabtitlesection type="tabs"] [pl_tabtitle number="1"]Title 1[/pl_tabtitle] [pl_tabtitle number="2"]Title 2[/pl_tabtitle] [/pl_tabtitlesection] [pl_tabcontentsection] [pl_tabcontent active="yes" number="1"] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit [/pl_tabcontent] [pl_tabcontent number="2"] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit [/pl_tabcontent] [/pl_tabcontentsection] [/pl_tabs]

      I get a strange output (in the attachment).

      Any ideas?

      Thanks in advance!
