This will "light up" the containers which gives all the elements a background.</p> <p>Example,<br /> <pre><code>div { background: rgba(100, 100, 100, 0.2); } ul { background: rgba(100, 100, 100, 0.2); } li { background: rgba(100, 100, 100, 0.2); } span { background: rgba(100, 100, 100, 0.2); }</code></pre> <p>Try one at a time and see if something is overlapping, but you won't receive much help here because it is almost impossible to troubleshoot this kind of stuff without an example. </p> stormy on "Links not working at top of #content" Wed, 12 Oct 2011 22:36:05 +0000 stormy 23443@ <p>I have reduce the size of the header and now there is a 'dead' area at the top of #content where links don't work. I have checked the css #branding, #heading, #access and #main to make sure the area isn't hidden by another div. I did add a menu widget there temporarily which is now removed.

I've made the addition you suggested and the links still operate.</p> <p>However, I carried out the changes of theme mentioned above before I made your addition, so I'm still at a loss to explain why the theme changes fixed the problem. I understand your point about the "cover up" but both the problem links and some of the others seemed to be opposite the menu. With the addition you've suggested, I guess the problem won't recur.</p> <p>I'm relatively new to WordPress and am not yet really secure with the structures - as you can tell. None of Firebug, WebDeveloper, View Source revealed the problem by the way.</p> <p>Many thanks for your timely help. </p> helgatheviking on "some links put into pages do not work" Wed, 10 Aug 2011 14:42:57 +0000 helgatheviking 22597@ <p>if you were hovering over them and the links didn't change it was b/c the menu in the sidebar had a width of 940px and was "covering up" the regular content. see my above post for the fix. </p> lachlan39 on "some links put into pages do not work" Wed, 10 Aug 2011 06:41:25 +0000 lachlan39 22594@ <p>Now resolved.

This also occurred with the 2011 theme and the basic thematic theme.</p> <p>So I activated my custom theme again - and now the links worked properly!</p> <p>So now I can go ahead and work on my theme again! </p> lachlan39 on "some links put into pages do not work" Wed, 10 Aug 2011 05:03:59 +0000 lachlan39 22593@ <p>Thanks. I should have been more explicit. Although the links are underlined, the cursor doesn't change shape when hovered over them, and nothing happens on click. Have a look on the Members page and also the (temporarily unrestricted) Restricted page. As you move down the page they start to "work" and then continue to do so. A lot of the html is cut and pasted which I though could be a problem, but also see the new page Ztemp made completely in WordPress.</p> <p>You're right about the aut site but the one before it certainly loads from a browser.</p> <p>Styling is far from complete but I'm not sure what your comment about weirdness refers to. </p> helgatheviking on "some links put into pages do not work" Wed, 10 Aug 2011 04:37:27 +0000 helgatheviking 22592@ <p>what do you mean by "most don't work"? what is happening instead?</p> <p><a href="" rel="nofollow"></a></p> <p>is a broken link. it returns a 404 not-found page. it's not that it doesn't work, it is that your link is incorrect or points to a location that no longer exists.</p> <p>as an aside, you've got weirdness coming from your widget menu</p> <p>i'd add</p> <pre><code>.widget_nav_menu .menu { width: auto; }</code></pre> <p>to override the default .menu width that applies to the menu in #access </p> lachlan39 on "some links put into pages do not work" Wed, 10 Aug 2011 02:49:25 +0000 lachlan39 22588@ <p>I am using a child theme derived from the thematic sample one with WordPress 3.2. Some of the pages have links (both external and internal) on them. Most don't work. The code seems to be the same for adjoining operational and non-operational links.

The link to topic on the search bar would be the way to go. Currently there is a link underline in between your two icons. There is a space between the coding for your two icons in functions. Put space between the two icons with:<br /> style="margin-right:10px;" after twitter.png.</p> <p>If you stay with what you have you could (I think) limit the width of #access to say 650px (if you have a width on #wrapper of 960px and center it with margin: 0 auto). That way you will not run up against the z-index issue that is covering the top part of your icons from being active as a links. </p> helgatheviking on "adding icons to menu" Tue, 02 Aug 2011 19:42:07 +0000 helgatheviking 22513@ <p>it's a combo of positioning and the fact that #access has a high z-index. the more i think about it the more i think you might be better served by adding your links into the access function</p> <p>see this link:<br /> <a href="" rel="nofollow"></a></p> <p>instead of the search form you'd just use the markup from your my_div_socmedia function </p> cookieandkate on "adding icons to menu" Tue, 02 Aug 2011 18:45:35 +0000 cookieandkate 22512@ <p>Hooray! It works!</p> <p>You're right, helgatheviking, the code you mentioned first is unnecessary. I didn't have to edit sowingseeds' code to move the icons above the header, though. All I did was change the image source code and add links. I also fiddled with the CSS until the icons showed up in the right spot.</p> <p>Here's the code I'm using, in case it's helpful to anyone:<br /> // Remove the standard Thematic menu<br /> function remove_menu() {<br /> remove_action('thematic_header','thematic_access',9);<br /> }<br /> add_action('init', 'remove_menu');</p> <p>// Moving the thematic menu above the header<br /> add_action('thematic_aboveheader','thematic_access');</p> <p>// add icons icons to menu above header<br /> function my_div_socmedia(){<br /> echo '&lt;div id="socmedia"&gt;&lt;div class="icons_social"&gt;<a href="!/cookieandkate">&lt;img width="18" height="18" alt="Follow me on twitter" src="" /&gt;</a><a rel="alternate" href=""><br /> &lt;img width="18" height="18" style="margin-left:2px;" alt="Subscribe via RSS" src=""&gt;<br /> </a>&lt;/div&gt;&lt;/div&gt;';<br /> }<br /> add_action('thematic_aboveheader','my_div_socmedia');</p> <p>ONE little issue remains, though. When I hover my mouse over either of the icons, I don't see that I can click on the icon until my mouse is at the bottom edge of the icon. The icons are small, yes, but I should be able to click on them when I'm hovering directly over them.

How about adding a new division into thematic_aboveheader (I assume your menu is already in that hook)? Maybe then if you put the social media icons inside a class division styling would be not too difficult.</p> <p>So for example:<br /> function my_div_socmedia(){<br /> echo '&lt;div id="socmedia"&gt;&lt;div class="icons_social"&gt;&lt;img src="path_to_icon1" /&gt;&lt;img src="http://path_to_icon2" /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;/div&gt;';<br /> }<br /> add_action('thematic_aboveheader','my_div_socmedia');</p> <p>Then in css:<br /> #socmedia { margin-left:50%; width: 480px; margin-top:-25px; } /*adjust margin-top to move icons up*/<br /> .icons_social { margin-left:200px; } /*adjust margin-left to move icons as far right as you wish*/</p> <p>Don't think you will need any 'clear:left' or equivalent. </p> cookieandkate on "adding icons to menu" Tue, 02 Aug 2011 05:00:08 +0000 cookieandkate 22501@ <p>Hi,</p> <p>I have read through the Thematic menus demystified post and read about Wordpress menu styling, but I'm still stumped.
