I have a very unusual problem and I also have a css problem with IE ( lol)
anyway.. the only way to get around a bug/corrupt problem we are having was to create a menu module and with CSS get it close to the other menu items - everything is fine except in IE of course. When the page loads... the menu item (CHARRETTE) starts lower than the other menu items then jumps to where it needs to be - I am blaming the CSS for it of course - my boss hates that it jumps like this but this is the only way to get this done - so I need to fix the jumping thing..

Joomla - is am using the CSS as a suffix to the module

CSS:

#blogcharrette  {
 
	color: #666666 !important;
 
	}
 
#blogcharrette a {
 
display:block;
	font-size: 12px;
	font-family: framd;
	color: #666666;
	padding: 0px 0px 0px 0px;
	text-decoration: none;
	float:right;
	margin: -25px 142px 0px 0px ;
	z-index: 1;
	}
 
#blogcharrette a:hover{
 
display:block;
	font-size: 12px;
	font-family: framd;
	padding: 0px 0px 0px 0px;
	text-decoration: none;
	float:right;
	margin: -25px 142px 0px 0px ;
	color:#03A9E1;
	z-index: 1;
 
}

Thanks
Rob

fouc?

Wow! I haven't seen that in ages; if that's what I'm seeing. It looks very much like fouc (flash of unstyled content). See Google for more info. I wouldn't bet the ranch on it, but that is my impression. I thought IE had fixed that, and maybe they have and the issue is something else.

So, I have to ask: why is charrette a single list item in its own ul rather than in the main list? I don't see any way that makes sense. Of course all general purpose CMS platforms have bits of silliness that must be overcome.

cheers,

gary

If your web page is as clever as you can make it, it's probably too clever for you to debug or maintain.

wow - thanks charrette is

wow - thanks
charrette is its own weird menu module because I cannot create a new menu /menu type=External URL - something is corrupted and doing an external link produces an alias that is a 404 error - I tried to edit it in the databse and it just defaulted back to the alias - and I had to get this menu item up somehow

thanks
