I'm not sure if this is the best place to post this, rather than the modules forums. I have just updated my site to 2.4.2. I notice that now the forum icons that appear above the text box when posting a message are arranged vertically rather than horizontally. This is unattractive and a waste of screen space. This seems to be a consequence of the upgrade. Is there a way to either rearrange or eliminate those icons? There must be a way to rearrange them because I notice they are horizontal above this window.
[Edit] OK, it just occurred to me that this might be a theme problem, and it is. If I use a different theme the icons are horizontal. I'll have to look closely at the theme I use as the default (zen-ocean). Of course, if any of you CSS experts out there can quickly see the problem, I'd appreciate your advice.
What theme are you using? As I said above, I am using a slightly modified version of Kris's zen-ocean. You can see the effect by looking at www.aka.org. Just start a post and you'll see it but you'd have to register to do so.
Here is an image showing the effect
I am still trying to figure out why this is happening. Obviously a line feed is being inserted after every radio button and message icon and it must be a problem with the theme CSS. However, so far I haven't been able to find identifiers in the theme corresponding to these elements.
Again, if anyone can point to where the problem might lie, I'd truly appreciate it.
Also, the required caption marker is being inserted for every element in the form. Ghia posted some code recently related to this problem on the XOOPS site. However, I was not sure where to place that code in my theme. Ghia, if you see this?
indeed I did. I could see in the page source the label tags but didn't know about the change in 2.4 that caused this effect. I chose your second option, adding the code below the existing label selector and it works fine now. Once again, I am in your debt.
Incidentally, you probably saw my question about the * caption marker appearing for every element in the form. As I said, I saw your post some days ago about this on the XOOPS site. Can you make any comment about it relevant to these forms in bbedit, etc? Where in the CSS would the code you suggested be placed?
Actually, I had to add some selectors in the CSS for the checkboxes that are at the bottom of the form (use html, etc). So, I added multiple selectors, as below. I am putting these in full as there is at least one other person with the same issue.
At first I had a space between label and [name="xolb_icon]. That does not work. There can be no space there, although there can be between the commas and the next iteration of name. I also added a left margin of 0.5em, as you suggested.
