The Scandinavia bug. Can anyone help me fix? (5 posts)

    I've been using the excellent Scandinavia theme for a couple of month's now, but there is a bug in it that I just can't get rid of.

    If you have enough posts during a month, the calendar will brake due to the link-in/link-out graphics displayed next to all links.

    The solution would be to turn those images off for all links in the calendar.

    I've been reading about CSS in W3Cschool and asked Google several times. I've even dug into the WP-source, but I can not beat it into submission.

    You can check the source of my site for all my futile attempts. ;-)

    Does anyone know how to solve this?

    Thanks in advance for your time and effort.

    Have you contacted the Theme author/designer? They are the best suited to help you solve this problem.

    Do you want to get rid of the images? They are probably set by the style.css file as background images, so you just remove the style reference to the calendar images and they are gone. Make a backup of your style.css file before you do this, just in case it's more complicated that that and you have to start over.

    I took a look and things are more boogered than you realize. First of all, validate your page and clean up your list problems. That will give you more control of some of what you see.

    Second, when you have a link within your document, it's a link. People know it as a link and you need to show the box+arrow to show that the link is intra-site. Showing that a link is external is fine, but this also borks up your external links on your sidebar when the link text is replaced by graphics.

    I'd get rid of all of your internal link graphics and that would clean up the problem with the calendar. So the problem isn't with the calendar but your linking system.

    And then I'd change the external links to not work on your sidebar to clean up the link graphic there. Here's an example on that part:

    #menu a:link {background:transparent; padding:0; ......}
    #menu a:active {background:transparent; padding:0; ......}
    #menu a:hover {background:transparent; padding:0; ......}

    And leave the external link reference, which includes background graphic and padding to allow for the graphic to show, on the rest of your links.

    I hope that helps.

    I didn't know there was an issue with my lists; I'll look into it. Thanks for the info.

    I don't really want to get rid of the graphics at all, I can see a use for them. But if it is the only solution to fix the calendar-bug, I'll just have to. Atleast for the internal links.

    Thank you for help!

    btw. I have contacted the theme creator, but he is a busy man indeed. :)

    You won't be getting rid of them all the way around, just eliminating them from your calendar if they bork things up. Or your sidebar completely but not from your text.

    In general, the standard usage for these is on external links. Internal is kind of a waste of time.

    Let us know if we can help.

    Thank you for your help. I got rid of them all together. Makes my life easier anyway. ;)
