  • I really like the plugin so far 😉

    But why does the ribbon need to be in it’s own link-tag?
    I guess this is what makes the ribbon flicker when hovering over the product image (with link) and the ribbon link.

    Thanks for your comment (and for your support to other bugs), i have not seen any flickering so far, but i’ll check it


    Okay I found the problem and got it fixed!
    I lower the opacity of products in lists on a:hover and since the ribbon is also an <a> tag, the same rule applied there and caused the flickering when hovering between the two links.

    Now I simply changed to a:not(:first-child):hover, since the ribbon comes first and the problem is solved.

    And now it also makes sense to me, why the ribbon has a link: because otherwise the product wouldn’t be clickable in the area of the ribbon.

    You’re right, and i have to find a more elegant solution for this… maybe i should draw the ribbon with canvas, avoiding the ‘rectangle’ containing the ribbon.

    I’ll check it for next release

    Doing it with canvas sounds good, probably simpler with the correct positioning since the small :before and :after caps are not that size independent (I changed the font-settings and -size a little to test).

    But anyways, thanks @starblank
