Solved How do I get rid of empty.gif?

Post by Deathspawn on April 27th 2011, 12:07 am

I am trying to get the nav links to not have any image by them. If I go edit them via Display > Homepage > Headers & Navigation, I can edit everything to have no image except the PM one. And they all show up as having no image.

Here is where the problem starts... when I go to try to edit the PM images in Pics management (Simple), if I leave the image blank, it gets magically replaced with http://illiweb.com/fa/empty.gif. I DON'T WANT THAT AT ALL! Hiding the image does nothing but make http://illiweb.com/fa/empty.gif show up again. If I do this in advanced, EVERYTHING gets the http://illiweb.com/fa/empty.gif put on it, so I have to go back and re-edit everything.

Why do I care? Because the empty.gif makes an unnecessary space before the word, and it looks especially ugly when you hover over a link and see a big __ at the beginning... (e.g. __Home).

Is there some way to prevent everything empty from getting replaced by http://illiweb.com/fa/empty.gif?

(Also, I am trying, for the life of me, to figure out what messed up code is making a bigger image show up. I edit the image in gimp and find it is only 1x1 pixels, so it shouldn't be even seen... but it looks like an invisible square is there...)

i never had a problem with it?

can you post a screen shot of what you mean by the space thing your talking about.

all you can do is remove the images from pic's management there is no way to get rid of the empty image link thing?

however, i am sure there is way to fix what you mean by css or in your navigation options, but i will need to see a screen shot or link to your forum so i can see what you mean.

Hover over the nav links and you should see it, I left the image on FAQ, but not the rest. (I'm on Firefox 4 btw.)

Edit: CSS has nothing to do with it. I tried editing that and searching for the image and only 3 lines had it but they weren't affecting the nav links. It is something in the coding Forumotion is using because it auto replaces every blank thing you leave in the image management with the empty.gif, except for the nav link editor.

Hi, the support forum also has empty.gif in their navigation buttons. If you highlight them, you should also see a gap before the name. As for your problem, the reason why it doesn't look nice is because there is an underline when you highlight your menu link.

I can remove it for you if you wish. Smile

I guess what would really be nice is if there was an option in like Display > Headers & Navigation to not display images in the navbar.

Oh wait, there already is "Display only images in the navbar :"... but it doesn't work correctly.

Would look better if the whole thing was like...

Navbar images: () On () Beside text () Off.

Then you wouldn't have to edit the CSS to remove the underline which is really not the source of the problem at all, and underlining helps define links better.

Also, by doing that, you can just leave whatever code makes the empty.gif in case someone actually wants that, and it won't screw stuff up.

Okay, so do you want the CSS code to remove underlines or is this problem solved?

It's not really solved... And no, I don't want the CSS to remove underlines. I guess I'll just post a suggestion to change the navbar thing to:

Navbar images: () On () Beside text () Off.

Unless one of the admins see it here.

I guess lock it if you want and I will post the suggestion in the suggestion area. But it isn't solved.

Here's a CSS rule that will get rid of the empty GIF images:

Code:
img[src*="empty.gif"] {display:none;}
