  • Hi ,
    I came across a problem with the manager. As my list of documents expands, the scroll bar stops working from time to time. Is it a known issue?
    Thanks
    • Never came across this... a bit more information will be required to help, like which browser do you use and which OS ?

        Are you using Firefox2? IIRC, there’s a bug where 1/2 of the scrollbar works, while 1/2 of it is selectable, but does nothing.

        • Yes, I get the same thing in FF/Mac, even the newest nightly build of "minefield" (3.03b-pre) and in Safari as well.

          • I must say I have never been as annoyed as I am with FF... ever since I upgraded to 2.0.0.11 it’s downright buggy sad !

            • Ok thanks I’ll stay away from FF from now on.... It is the same for Navigator 9 too under Win 2000.
              • I also find scrolling with the browser window in FF/WinXP just doesn’t work. The only time it’s not a problem is if you use the wheel on your mouse while your cursor is hovering the folder.
                • Netscape has been Firefox since version 7 so any anomalies you would find in FF is the same as you would find in NS. The only difference between the browsers is the visual layout (colours and skin).

                  As far as the scroll bar not working on FF it does work but the way the frames are laid out code is written it is obscured by the frame improperly marked up <div> next to it. You have to actually just catch the far left side of the scrollbar and it should work. If you hover your pointer over the scroll handle you should see the handle change colors.

                  The problem is that the element that is used to enable resizing of the tree (div.#treeSplitter) is overlapping the scrollbar. This can be fixed by changing a line in /manager/media/style/template_you_are_using/style.css at line 527 (depending on which manager template you are using) to make the right position to -10px insead of 0. It should read as follows:

                  #treeSplitter {
                  	width:10px;
                  	height:100%;
                  	position:absolute;
                  	right:-10px;
                  }
                  


                  This should not interfere with any other elements as the manager main pane has no elements within the 10px space that this moves the treeSplitter to.

                  If anyone wants to test this out and get back to me here on how it works in various browsers/OSs so that I can submit a patch for 0.9.6.x.

                  I certainly hope that you are not thinking of switching to using IE for your development and management as is has more holes than a sponge. Firefox is not the problem, the problem is invalid code the treeSplitter is not in a valid element the empty div is marked up as <div /> and not as <div></div> as it should be. Firefox just doesn’t know how to style an element that doesn’t actually exist so it can’t do it correctly.

                  Hope this all makes sense.

                  • Beautiful! Works perfectly in FF 3.0b3pre (minefield) and Safari.

                    • Woot great fix smashingred :thumbsup:

                      Certainly not thinking about switching to IE (yuck), since I am a Mac user (so is Susan).

                      Work case scenario, switching to Safari (which I do sometimes to work in the manager) or Opera (but it was not working all that well with the manager last time I checked).
