CBB forum problem

I'm having a problem with my cbb forum in that guests can see the drop down box next to a posters name but dont have access rights but registered people cant see the peoples names (or the drop down box to click).

Has anyone seen this problem before?

example is here http://www.aussienymeetup.net/modules ... c.php?topic_id=17&forum=4

humpf :(

I've just realised it's only me that cant see the drop down boxes.

I logged in as a regular user and their boxes work fine.

I changed my ranking to user but that didn't change what I could and couldn't see.

Any thoughts where a missed setting might be?

Not understand your problem very well but guess you are talking about the hover menu.

Try to add CSS definition for menu backgroud.

/* color -- dropdown menu for Forum */
div.dropdown adiv.dropdown .menubar a{
    
color:#FFF;
}

div.dropdown .menudiv.dropdown .menubardiv.dropdown .itemdiv.dropdown .separator{
    
background-color#436792; /* same color set as in your theme/style.ss .th{} is recommended */
    
color:#FFF;
}

div.dropdown .separator{
    
border1px inset #e0e0e0;
}

div.dropdown .menu a:hoverdiv.dropdown .userbar a:hover{
    
color#333;
}
/* color - end */

Re: CBB forum problem

yep it is the hover menu but I've tried both click and hover and doesn't solve the problem.

is this a known problem? also where exactly do i put this code?

why is it viewable for the guest and registered viewers but not viewable for the webmaster?

Add the scripts to your theme/style.css
You could find guide in newbb/changelog.txt, will move the guide to readme.txt for next release.



There are three modes: select box, hover, click
The "select box", which is set by default, does not need background color. That's why it looks working fine for guests, they are using selectbox.

Re: CBB forum problem

hi thanks for that yes the names are now highlighted but what I still cant use the drop down box.

I've tried to change from hover to click and back again but this hasn't fixed my problem.

the registered users are still able to access it no problems but webmaster still cant use the drop down box so I think it's a bigger problem than just style etc.

Hi dean, i have same problem with you before.

The drop-down menu can't view because menumode active or default setting not "SELECT" mode (menumode = 0).

For simple solve this;

1. Set on newbb module preference "Default Menu Mode" to "SELECT" mode.

2. For keep it always "SELECT Mode" you can modif on the header.php file like this:

// MENU handler
Quote:

$valid_menumodes = array(
0 => _MD_MENU_SELECT,
1 => _MD_MENU_CLICK,
2 => _MD_MENU_HOVER
);


change with:
Quote:

$valid_menumodes = array(0 => _MD_MENU_SELECT);


This is my way, i hope you understand.

Thank's.

Re: CBB forum problem

ok this has fixed the problem in that I can now pm look at profiles etc but it's a drop down box for guests and users but not for webmasters??

I'd like to have all of the same look, where is this option controlled from and how do I change it back so they are all the same.

I noticed in the next line of code there is a reference to cookies, can I delete a cookie to revert somehow?


TIA,
Dean
