position of email address hint in themed ecard form
« on: June 11, 2005, 01:24:17 pm »

Hi

When I start to type in an email address in the ecard form, my browser (IE6) prompts me with an email address I've used before, so that I can arrow down to select it rather than re-typing it.

When I use the classic theme, the email address hint pops up in a box directly underneath the email address field - which is where it should be.

But when I use my own theme, which I created by modifying project_vii, then the email address hint pops up much lower down the screen.

Does anyone know what controls the position of this pop up email hint? Maybe I've broken something by editing the theme?

Thanks

link to your page (and non-admin test user account if needed for sending ecards). This is not an ecard issue, but a custom theme issue though, therefor moving this thread accordingly.

Hi,

Whilst posting the links to my site for you, I remembered that I'm using a frame to display the gallery within another page. When I try the framed version I get the problem, but when I go dierctly to the gallery then everything is ok.
I'd like to keep it as a frame if possible, so I'd be grateful if you know of a way to fix this without putting all the stuff from my surrounding page into template.html.

Here's a link to my site ... {removed},
or to go direct to the gallery without frames, use this link ... {removed}

You don't need a user account to send ecards at the moment

Cheers

well, that's a general drawback of using frames, that's why most designers try to avoid them whenever possible.

Sorry GauGau, I'm quite new to building web sites. Do you know of a way to fix this?

you could come up with some php code or JavaScript gimmicks that pull coppermine into the correct frame, but this code is not related to coppermine - it's more a general web design technique that has been discussed very often already on webdesign forums all over the internet. As the code is not trivial I can not simply pist something ready for copy'n paste, so you'll have to find out on your own. However, I suggest you get rid of frames altogether, imo they just s**k as a means of page design.

I thought you might be interested in a solution I found on another site. Apparently there's an "autocomplete=off" option on the form tag, so while it doesn't fix the problem it does effectively remove it. Anyway, autocomplete's no big loss, and it's certainly easier than getting cpg to running in my site outside of a frame! :)
