Support » Plugin: Black Studio TinyMCE Widget » side bar content length – missing links

  • Resolved MRTMRTMRT

    (@mrtmrtmrt)


    Hi,

    I am currently using your widget. I noticed however that my links (example: pinky image circle, Info & boekingen / Gedicht van de maand – mama) are no longer displayed in case the sidebar length content is shorter than my page contents. And also, only valid in case I use an alinea format i your widget. If not, no links will be displayed at all.

    Examples:

    OK
    http://woordaccent.be/contact/
    Example: Menu – Contact

    NOK
    http://woordaccent.be/wie-ben-ik/
    Example: Menu – Wie ben ik

    I have a need to enter a lot of alinea info’s to make sure my links are displayed.
    If not, it will only be text.

    Any suggestions? Thanks for your help.

    Additionally I would like to mention the following too.

    As you will notice on my site, the list of Menu Berichten is longer than the side bar length.

    Result: no links are present

    Hi there,
    please note this is not related to our plugin. It looks like a theme bug, and by the way it’s dependent on browser (occurring in Chrome but non in Firefox).

    Please check the following threads that are probably related:

    https://wordpress.org/support/topic/sidebar-drops-underneath-page-content/

    A quick and dirty trick could be to change the styling in your child theme’s style.css,

    from:

    #primary {
        float: left;
        margin: 0 -26.4% 0 0;
        width: 100%;
    }

    to

    #primary {
        float: left;
        margin: 0 -26.4% 0 0;
        width: 99%;
    }

    Hi,

    thank you for your reply, and help / suggestions.

    [1] I tried copying the dirty trick code into the style.css file. Alas, that did not foresee my links in the side bar when using the Chrome browser.

    [2] In one of the links you provided above, I noticed below code too. Hence no positive results.

    .left-sidebar #primary {
    margin-left:0;
    width: 72%;
    }
    .singular .entry-content {
    width:100%
    }

    [3]
    And indeed, it depends on the browser utilized. Yesterday I noticed that the Safari browser does not have the link problem either.

    BTW: when using an Internet Explorer as your browser, the website layout suffers even more…

    [4] I reported my problem on the Twenty Eleven Child theme forum in the past, hence I did not receive a reply from them. Eventually I thought adding new pages would solve the problem, perhaps a kind of refreshment issue, but off course that was not true 🙁

    Conclusion: perhaps I have a need to change the theme indeed. But I am afraid changing the theme will be influencing all my current / existing implementations …

    Hi there,
    the code change I proposed in my last message works for me with Chrome on Windows 10.
    Are you sure you implemented it correctly?

    Thanks for this answer. In my case, I am using a very simple theme I created with _S. Using the built in WordPress widgets for Categories, Archives, Recent Posts, etc. the links were not working in Safari, but were working as expected in Chrome and Firefox. I changed the width in the #primary.content-area to 99% as you suggested and it fixed the problem.

    It appears this is not a problem with any particular theme. I really don’t understand why this works, but after hours of trying to debug my CSS, I’m not going to question it! 🙂
