  • It seems that when viewing a support topic in Safari with Mac OS 10.4, there is a problem with the dark gray sidebar. Members’ names are not clickable as they are in Firefox.

    Anybody else have this problem?

    Yeah, I’ve noticed it too. I’m not sure if it’s a Safari bug or a BBPress bug though. I noticed the problem right after one of the WP Support Forum upgrade, so it probably is a BBPress problem, but it hasn’t bothered me enough to report it yet. I just use Firefox if I need to click on any names.

    not just tiger – also 10.3.7 too


    what changed lately?



    ah, i’m so glad someone else noticed this, it’s been bugging me loads. (it’s the same in shiira, and firefox is achingly slow on mac)… so i usualy browse by safari, then switch to firefox to get author links (!)

    i’m safari 2.0 on Tiger.

    i found this:


    I’m not sure exactly which versions of Safari this effects, but the padding-bottom has a ghost effect that, though the columns are painted correctly, links and form elements that follow the columns and that by rights should be above it, are unclickable.

    This problem can be overcome by setting position: relative on any of the necessary elements. However, An unintended side-effect is that it cause such elements to vanish in IE Wins, 5.01 and 5.5, so we need to prevent those browsers seeing the position: relative.”

    Also using Z-index might fix it.

    z-index: value
    Defines the stacking order for elements. An element with a higher z-index value will be displayed on top of one with a lower z-index value.

    I tried pulling in the source of this page, and fixing it, but i can’t seem to get it to work,

    any CSS gurus out there?
