Change to ljextras.css?

  • Sep. 7th, 2006 at 9:00 PM
Hi all..

It looks like earlier today there was a change to voxhtml's ljextras.css stylesheet which, in combination with a bit of custom CSS I've been using, rendered my journal horribly broken on IE. Now, I've figured out how to work around this, but what I'd like to know is if anybody can tell me why the change was implemented, and what the ramifications are if I override some of it myself.

Specifically, the bit that was interacting poorly with my own code is:

* html .asset-inner, .widget-inner {
   overflow-x: auto !important;
   overflow-y: hidden !important;
   width: 100% !important;
   padding-bottom: 10px;

Can anybody tell me what this added bit of CSS is intended to do? I'm assuming it's supposed to fix some problem of some sort, but what is the problem it's addressing?

Thanks for any assistance..

I believe that bit of code was intended to fix a problem some people have been complaining of: that large images are cut off by the edge of the entry and cannot display fully. Ideally, the new code should produce a scrollbar at the bottom of individual entries that have overflowing content. As you've noticed, that isn't working with all browsers and layouts.

If you were happy with the way your code was displaying before, just paste

html .asset-inner, .widget-inner {
overflow: hidden !important;

* html .asset-inner, .widget-inner {
overflow-x: hidden !important;
overflow-y: hidden !important;
width: 100% !important;
padding-bottom: 10px;

Into your style sheet or Custom Css box to set things back the way they were. *smiles* Or, for that matter, wing it with whatever override works best with your layout.

Thank you! I didn't even notice that ugly scrollbar at the bottom of my page until I read this and went to look. Thankya!

Will that mess it up in FireFox. I don't use IE, but I know some of my "friends" do. Should I add the code for their sake?

This bug is a bit unpredictable. It seems to be affecting some IE and some Firefox, but not all. I'd say that, if your flist usually reads your journal through their own fpages, you can just leave things as they are. If people come to your own journal a lot and read using your own layout, you might want to ask whether anyone's having trouble with it.

Ah, thanks a lot.. now I know what to test on my own version to make sure my overrides don't break things for those cases.

In particular, it appears to be the "width: 100%" that's interacting with my stuff to produce a rather bizarre IE bug. It looks like that's the only bit I need to override, and I'll check large images to see what effect that has on them.
