Flouting items and missing panels

In progress Flouting items and missing panels

Post by Kami-sama on January 14th 2015, 9:02 pm

Hello!

So, recently I had some problems and I do not know if it's only Forumotion making changes, or it was my bad somewhere in the code. Problems occurs sometimes and then all is right again. Other users said, they had no problems.

Problem 1: One object in announcement field with flout style sometimes ignores my set margins and just floats in the top of the page.
Problem 2: There are no editing buttons (set color, font, ..) when writing a post in quick reply and regular reply
Problem 3: Looks like as if administration panel style was turned of or smth.

If this problem already has a topic, sorry for starting it again!
Thanks in advance Wink

So you are the only one having this issue?

Which browser are you using?  Is this happening on mobile devices or/and desktop computers?

Hello! Yes it appears I'm the only one. I checked to see if that happens when I connect with a simple user account - the same.

So now that you mentioned, it probably is my browser/computer problem. 
On the phone so far it looked okey, but I do not check it very often.

Yet, if it is a desktop problem, I wonder what that could be? 
(I'm using google chrome) Next time It happens, I'll check it in other browsers.

Problem 1 : I'm not sure, unless you're using absolute and the parent container is not relatively, absolutely, or fix positioned. scratch

Problem 2 : This can sometimes occur due to errors in javascript. If it persists, I'd recommend disabling javascript management temporarily to see if that's the problem.

Problem 3 : You cannot modify that with javascripts or CSS so it might be your browser or something server-side. What's it look like ?

Problem 1, please post code for positioning you using.

Problem 2: Try change language, theme or turn off javascript. One of that making that bug.

Problem 3: Have you clicked at Toggle admin interface? If so, you have same button at top right at admin panel, but only with text " Toggle admin interface".

 1. Yes, I am using absolute. So with that the problem would be with the parent container?
EDIT: I've noticed I have another item in the same announcement with "absolute" tag, yet, I never had problems with it's position.
EDIT2: Okey, ;D I've added the relativity tad to teh parent container. My bad for missing that. Now we shall see if that does the trick Wink

But what puzzles me, that usually all is fine, but all the problems occur at once. So maybe there is the problem with java... I will try turning it off next time these shenanigans happen Very Happy

Second but (pun not intended) - I've accidentally noticed, that when these problems occur they occur for me in all forums (I rarely go to other forums, but other day, when I was writing this problem here, I could not see the text editing buttons here and in the other forum)

So I come to conclusion, that it might be my browser after all. 
Next time it happens (probably sometime today) I will do some print screens and check how it works in other browsers.

1. Here are my outer container and the inner one, witch floats in the top ignoring ONLY the "top" parameter. "left" parameter however stays. That's whats interesting about it.

Code:
<div style="width: 445px; height: 320px; float: left; margin-top:40px;">
        <div style="height: 70px; width: 555px; top: 5px; left: 180px; position: absolute;">

2. Language shouldn't be the problem. I've had the forum for many years in that language and no problems yet. I'm thinking about Javascript or, my custom portal widget item, however logically it shouldn't be the problem (the portal I mean). 

3. Oh no. What I mean , by "admin panel interface style" that imagine you would have a text on a blank page with no style at all! I will do print screens next time it happens.

If it is ok now than I belive that was php problem and we can't fix it. Maybe your computer lagged or something and stopped connection with server so php can't sent all informations...

The problem is, that it happens all the time. Once or twice a day (if I'm hanging around in the forum all day).

So far, problems haven't occurred again, so I guess floating item problem solved others too Wink Anywho, for now let's mark this SOLVED.

Hey I apologize for the late response, things have been crazy for me. lol!

In regards to #1, when you want certain elements to be at the absolute corner of your parent element, always make sure the parent has a position other than static. ( Static is default ) Relative is the best choice if you want it to stay relative to its current position. Like this :

If you have devtools(F12) open the DOM inspector to check the style attributes of the table and its cells. If you remove relative from the parent, you'll notice that the absolute child cell goes outside to the left of the screen. Wink
I'm absolute !I'm static, but my parent is relative !

For #2 I'd like to ask this before we close the topic. Do you use wifi while you're out, like at a business or school ? If so, they may have a filter which blocks certain websites. If you notice the buttons disappear, try to access http://illiweb.com/ if you can't it may be blocked. This is were most of the scripts for the editor, toolbar, etc are hosted. So, if it's blocked, that will explain why you cannot certain features.

Thank you for all your help!

About the second problem. I always use wifi. At home we had some problems with it, so I'm not surprised that the connection it self messes things up (doesn't load everything properly). P.S. I can access your link Wink no problem with that.
