RC1 admin bar sub-menus act weird

  • arghagain


    How to fix the RC1 admin bar? Because you cannot go to sub-menus as those disappeared real fast even though your mouse pointer was not even moving out of the sub-menus.

    It’s a bug in the css. Andy just committed a huge amount of bug fixes. Lemme go check them out to see if this is one of them.

    EDIT: Nope, but another forums user has a fix for this. See the ticket for details:

    I don’t know how Andy would fix it but this works ok for me.



    I try the two little snippet fix for admin-bar.css in css in bp-core, and it’s not working.

    It’s not working for me! Maybe because I’m testing firefox on Linux. I need to test that on firefox on Windows. Though IE7 experiences flickering!

    I even tried to copy the whole css that the guy who said he had it fix, but it’s not working!



    the fix solve the 1 pixel gap (as you can see on, but not the IE flickering



    Hmm… maybe we are talking about two different behaviors that admin_bar of buddypress is rendering. I’m talking about on firefox, you cannot move your mouse down fast enough to submenu of the admin_bar, because it will disappeared. This mean let say you try to go to option Wire under My Account menu option, the menu will disappeared as if you have not opened it yet. This problem can be reproduce under My Account menu of admin bar of buddypress, but other menu options work fine. You can test on my website .

    sgrunt, your fix did not work for me. On my localhost I tried changing the css for the two elements, but the menu second-level lists still randomly vanish when the mouse hovers over them. I even created a user account on (nice site design btw) and experienced the problem on that site as well.

    If I move the mouse very slowly down the menu, then the menu has a greater chance of remaining visible.

    Within the code, I disabled the third-level lists from appearing, but this had no effect on the vanishing second-level lists.

    I am using Firefox 3.0.6 on Windows Vista. The menu does not disappear when I tested with IE7 (although the third-level menus are prone to flickering).

    Also, to fix a validation error that appears when a user is logged in, replace “alt” to “title” on line 507 of bp-core-templatetags.php

    Besides the menu problem, Buddypress works awesomely, thanks Andy and BuddyPress community! :-)



    anyone knows how to solve this one yet?
