chrome jitter in featured boxes

Recommended Posts

hi. I'm close to pulling the trigger on Featured Picture Boxes but as I look at the demo site in chrome I see the images jitter and move a pixel or two when I hover over.

 

this looks about perfect otherwise but I  know I'd be hearing it from the client if they noticed the movements.

 

is this a known issue? if its cleared up I'm in.

 

thanks,

Hi i believe i have fixed this. it was a webkit bug in which the type of rendering changes for a hover effect. Can you verify this is fixed on the demo?

hi. its still doing it on mine. I cleared my cashe. I'm on Version 27.0.1438.7 m and it says I'm up to date.

 

its like a 1 pixel left or right shift on the main big ones, but the text stays put.

 

the little ones on the right though, the image stays fine but the text moves down a couple pixels on mouseover.

OK it looks like a combination of 2 bugs, the one i fixed was very minor and it works perfectly on my mac now but on windows it is quite a noticeable jitter!

 

Again ill look at this in depth soon. Thanks

What I really like and appreciate is how easy you made it to use. Having a drop down box for the categories is so much nicer than making the user go hunt and peck for ID's.

 

really happy with this.

Thanks, i think the jitter only happens in the standard mode where the opacity changes and even then it seems variable. Glad you like it! - i had it almost complete for nearly 8 months before i got round to finishing and releasing so im happy its been well received but annoyed i didn't do it sooner.

 

Thats a very nice implementation of it aswell - it works well with the pictures and your site style, can i use it as a screenshot? And maybe when its live link to it from my site as a featured boxes 'in the wild'?

hi. I have another question.

 

She has nine pages that I want to use as the 9 home boxes, and then have them link to that page.

 

can I pull pages into here?

 

my only other idea is to make posts for each page and then use that post and on click have the post redirect to the page I want.

 

but that is inelegant.

You can use boxes, but if i understand you just want to pull page titles and featured images in like posts?

 

This was on the roadmap as a feature along with custom post types, pages should be super easy to implement, customs post types are a little harder. I will try and add this for you tomorrow.

 

 

hm. I am getting some jitter for sure. right now I have a bunch of boxes that don't have a hover and when they are hovered over, things start moving.

Yeah i see it (but only on windows with chrome), its the standard mode that has the issue, i think its a webkit bug which hopefully i can find a solution for on my end. I'll look at this tomorrow to.

Hey, to keep you updated i am working on the post feature tomorrow along with this jitter fix. I might not release the Post feature straight away as i may end up changing the pannel to support even more post types at the same time so if you email me at ryanjvarley@gmail.com i can send you a copy that supports it before its fully released.

 

The jitter fix will hopefully be solved at the same time but since im not 100% about the cause or fix i can't be certain. Thanks!

      Hi, I installed your Featured Picture Box section, found the config area in the 'page Options', but I can't see how I apply this to boxes, there doesn't appear to be anything in the boxes area, and there is no WP menu item for Featured Picture Boxes. How do I do this? Urgent advice appreciated as I have to get some boxes running with a hover tonight!

      Hi there - first of all I guess I should ask how / where I should post my question as there doesn't seem to be a 'place' for it.  It concerns adjusting the size for the Featured Picture Box section which I just purchased. I contacted the developer Ryan Varley who suggested I should go to (http://www.pagelines.com/forum/forum/68-store-products/) to post my question so that it can help other people. However there is no option to place a question for Ryan Varley sections and under the Pagelines section there is no option for Featured Picture Boxes. 
       
      I would like to resize the boxes as my understanding is that they change dynamically depending on the size of the container they are in. So for example if i have 3 boxes they will be much larger than having 4 boxes in a row. Ryan said to change the padding via css but after looking at the page with the developer tools in Chrome I have no idea how to do this. I have selected and changed padding values for everything I can find relating to the boxes on the page but only seem to be able to chop off the top/bottom of the box or change the navigation menu placement ! I have temporarily solved the problem by just placing 4 boxes on the row but I would like to have only 3 so any help would of course be greatly appreciated.
       
      Thanks and regards,
      Richard

      Hi Ryan,
       
      Currently, the images floats and occupy almost entire width of the sidebar. How can I add padding? Also, is there any way to show thumbmail images in smaller size of my choice apart from adding to Boxes? Suppose I want to show 150x150 image into 120x120. Is it possible? If not, can you add the feature pls.
       
      Also, I want to add widget title for the section i added to the sidebar. You can check my site, the section is live. how can I add it?
