Chrome/Safari & Portal Issues

Post by Benny Blades » Sat Jan 07, 2012 10:28 am

Hope I can get some help on the following two issues:

1. When viewing my portal using Chrome, the right side margin of my portal margin is not lining up. The portal looks fine using Firefox.

2. When viewing the portal in Safari, my pictorial does not show at all, see screen shot. It's been doing this for months.

Thanks in advance!

ok, here's what i've found....

issue 1...
the alignment issue is caused by the twitter block coding. first pic is with the twitter block code as it is on your site and the second pic is with the twitter block code removed

what is causing this is the twitter block is using the forabg container like the center portal blocks are. firefox automatically corrects it with the column setting in the ACP and chrome sees it as it is and it throws the column out.

as for issue #2, it seems that the image tool that you are using is not compatible with safari. i don't know if there is a fix for it or not.

yes, i know the twitter block is there. i removed that block using chrome's built in firebug utility and that fixed the column. the twitter block just simply needs to be recoded to stop it from breaking the layout.

Update: the Twitter block has been recoded and looks good now. The latest issue is the Twitter feed/block doesn't always work. Sometimes the feed is there, sometimes not. Any ideas what is going on guys?? It used to work 24/7.

Some of my members using the same browsers as I ( Firefox, Chrome) are reporting it works for some but not for others. On my end, the Twitter feed/block is working with Safari but not Firefox or Chrome. Every once in a while it's there but majority of the time it's not. I tried everything, clear cache, history, ran clear forum cache in ACP, unplugged my wifi, etc...no luck.

Any help?

i don't know what to say bud. here's screens from safari, chrome, and firefox from my end and all i did was refresh my browser.

firefox.png
you also have to keep in mind that the browser war has had all the major browsers updating in the last few months.

Firefox is at 9.0.1
Safari is at 5.1.2
Chrome is at 16.0.912.75 m

ask the members that are having issues to check what version their browser is and get them to clear their cache. other than that, i have no idea what to try as it's all working on my end except for the images in Safari.
