Style bug..?

About  

Previous Entry Style bug..? Jan. 19th, 2005 @ 10:47 pm Next Entry
Style : Vestibule
Theme : Killcrank
Browser : IE6 ( No problem with Firefox, but being that IE is my, and the rest of the worlds defult browser.. )
Problem : ( Click Me )

As you can see, the Text is disjointed from the Bullet.. I have no problem with any of the other bullets for sub galleries, so I haven't a clue.. Any ideas ?




While I'm posting, I minus well ask a few other things..
-Now with my LJ Style, I was lucky enough to find a community that basically had "Mods for dummies", enough that I was able to get my journal looking the way I wanted it to.. However I haven't found any of that for Scrapbook, and nothing I learned from my LJ style seems to carry over.. So is there any stuff on basically doing a theme from start to finish up anywhere ? Or is it even possible ?
-Is is possible to edit the text used in my style ? That is, say I wanted to change all the text like login (/manage) to use Capital letters, same with gallery storing, and stuff like that ? Lower case words/titles bug me to no end..
-Lastly, is there now, or are there any plans, to allow for the use of HTML or LJLinks in descriptions ? I'd have things like my DLM Mood Theme, that I want to credit to another LJ user, with the typical link, but it doesn't work..

You used 'a herf' instead of 'href.' That's all I have to say.

But by far, it is of the majority.. And I wanna make sure it looks right in IE and Firefox.. It's gotta always look right :)

I agree! "Most of the rest of the world" would be an accurate statement.

So just because "everyone does it" makes it acceptable?

I'm just ragging on you. But think about the security risks you're introducing by continuing to use Micro$oft Internet Exploiter. Even the US Government is recommending against using IE.

See http://browsehappy.com/why/ for more.

I use IE for the comfort factor, rather than the Security.. Untill they make a layout for Firefox/Opera that is the same as my layout for IE, I'll stick with it..

Besides, I don't mind is something goes bad, I'll just format, start over .. I do on a regular basis anyway ;)

Meh, its just your imagination you know. My mate once heard a story about an admin who migrated everyone to firefox and kept getting complaints that the users didn't like using this 'wierd new software'. So (s)he changed shortcut to firefox so that it looked like internet explorers "e", and then people stopped complaining.

With me it isn't.. I started off with Netscape, and was die hard for it till IE4.. NN4 never came close to having an interface that could match it.. I started using Opera long ago, and Firefox not so long ago.. It's not that they are not powerful enough, but the way I have my File, Address, Google, Tool, and Links bars are set up in the way I like..

Besides, if I was worries about security, I wouldn't be using Windows..

Yes.. I am one of the few well informed users who simply made the choice to stick with MS on many things.. ( But not OE.. as nice as it is, Thunderbird is soo much better with built in RSS.. )

When's the last time you used Firefox? To me, there was no transition from IE to Firefox. For me, it's pretty close, and there are all sorts of extra nifty features, too, like live bookmarks (RSS/Atom feed headlines updated dynamically in your Bookmarks menu) and a cool context search.

Did you give Firefox a real chance, or did you snub your nose at it simply because it wasn't IE? Just curious...

I use both Opera and Firefox once or twice a week.. Whenver I update them to the point that there is a noticeable change, I spent a few days using it as my main browser.. But it's just not the way I like to surf..

For things like RSS I use Thunderbird, not too far away..

Nope, I give them a chance, but if after a week I can't get into the interface, then I just won't make the switch.. It took all of an afternoon to make me switch from NN to IE4.. So if it doesn't wow me...

Maybe one day I'll move to soemthing else, but not today :p

So, maybe she has a Micro$oft voice recognition program :-)

I actually like 'minus well'. It's cute and not as imposing as 'Might'.

And thankyou, it is, infact something I does outside of proper grammar, Donno why.. I know it's wrong, but it's the way I say it, so it's the way I type it :)

Bah :p

I'm normally strict on Grammar also, but that is one of the cases where I choose style over all else.. It's the way I say it, and it be the way I type it :) ( Unless it's for a report or something, in which case Follow the rules of Grammar, I do.. Yes.. )

Browser bugs are really hard to diagnose just from a screen shot - A link to the offending page is almost always required. (Of course, the best is a minimal test case that triggers the rendering error).

I went to look at your album, and it appears to just be a problem when you only have one section inside the larger section. Maybe try creating 2 sections inside your Dead Like Me one? See if that helps? (hey, someone has to try to help!)

I can't be sure if that will fix it, but I am sure it is not the cause, one of my other galleries has just a single sub gallery without problem..

The only things I've been able to think of as a cuase is too much text in the name, or in the parent gallery description..
