Support » Fixing WordPress » “Previous Entries” link not clickable in Opera?

  • Resolved hjo3



    I’m using the latest version of Opera (9.01) and I just recently noticed that the “Previous Entries” link at the bottom of my main page (and at the bottom of archived post pages) isn’t working. (Though it does work in IE.) When I move the cursor over it, it doesn’t change to a finger pointer like with other links and I can’t highlight the text if I try.

    Here’s my site:

    Can anyone help me with this? I’m using the Kubrick theme with only a few minor tweaks. If you’d like to see any theme-PHP files, let me know and I’ll post their contents here.

    If anyone can help me fix this I’d really appreciate it! I’ve looked through the relevant settings and files and can’t figure this one out. (But I’m kind of a wordpress novice still, so.)

  • It appears that the stuff below your “navigation” class div element is pushing the link up so far that it’s not visible to Opera (probably a bug in Opera).

    To fix this, delete the “margin-bottom: 60px;” setting from the CSS settings for .navigation in your style.css file.

    Hmm, just looked at my blog with opera and I have the same issue.

    filosofo, can you clarify “it’s not visible to Opera” a bit? The text for the link is visible on the page, it just doesn’t “act” like a link.

    Yeah, sorry for the imprecision. I meant the link itself (as opposed to the text) seems not to be visible. I think the link is being pushed up behind something else or outside of the navigation div, so that while you can see the text, it’s as though it were hiding behind a clear wall.

    There’s probably a technical term for this, but I don’t know what it is. I do know that removing the margin-bottom setting makes the problem go away.

    Another option seems to be to add padding: 1px; to the .navigation CSS. Anything to keep that .navigation class div from being squeezed shut (again, sorry for the lack of a correct technical term).

    Man, just when I start to get comfortable with CSS…

    but yeah, in my case I had
    margin-bottom: 30px;
    in .navigation. Commented out and Opera “sees” the link now. Still checking with various browsers, but doesn’t seem to have broken anything.

    Hopefully that helped the OP too. Thanks!

    Ah, yep, deleting the margin-bottom property in .navigation fixed it for me. Thanks a lot, guys!
