Solved Navigation buttons disappear unless hovered

Post by HogwartsAcademy on August 5th 2012, 5:36 am

I am currently running Phpbb2 with a theme taken directly from the following link: "http://en.hitskin.com/search-a-skin/amazin-hq-red-189251.htm"

However, this happened a few times before, the buttons on my Navigation bar at the top of my forums disappeared. If I hover my mouse of where the buttons were, they appear again. Before it's only happened with one or two of the buttons, now it's about 4 of them and only 3 remain viewable. If you can tell me why this happened or if I need to reinstall the theme which I don't want to because I'm afraid all my work will be gone, then please help out.

My forum url is: http://hogwartsheights.canadian-forum.com

No, they're not. None of them, not even the ones that are all ready visible.

I guess you will have to hover over the menu images, take their url and put them back in the pics management. Be sure you do NOT have the Hide checkbox checked. It must be unchecked.

Hide checkbox? Where can I find this? If it isn't checked how do I get the link for the picture again?

The links for all the pictures in the picture management for the NAV bar is just: http://illiweb.com/fa/empty.gif

So, the images are not there. You will need to add image URL's there.

But these images are the default ones that come from the theme that I used directly - http://en.hitskin.com/search-a-skin/amazin-hq-red-189251.htm

The skins css is messed up probably, I suggest you to install another skin.

What data are you speaking? all the display changes will be gone.

Okay, can you post a screenshot of Display>pics management
advanced mode.

Does it show all the images of the navigation bar?

I think i have found the problem. For example,
Your css consists of this.
Code:
#i_icon_mini_index {
    background-image: url("http://i.imm.io/tiAp.png");
    height: 29px;
    width: 128px;
}
That image url itself has expired, so you don't see the images.
Firstly, you will have to get those images. Then replace the expired image url's with active image url's.

Do you understand?

Yeah I got you so far but where can I find the active image's url?

EDIT: I went on to the same theme that I have's display website, and their buttons are experiencing the same thing - http://demo.nicetheme.com/forum?theme_id=189251

Oh well, you will need to make a graphic request for the ones that are missing. Since, the images are deleted from source & hence not available even on hitskin.com
