As you look at http://forums.hiphop...ange.php?id=259 and my resolution is 1920 x 1080 on this computer with browser maximized and you see a more button with just one more feature to shoutbox. Why should there be a more button to only one section?

Hmm I don't see that anymore because maybe it resolve itself because I reported this. You still can tell by switching to http://forums.hiphop...ange.php?id=223

On further consideration, I'm going to ask that you submit this feedback directly to IPS, as this is functionality of the board itself. If you don't have any luck with them, we'll look at this request again.

Why are you posting here ? and what's your problem ? people don't want to waste time reading your messages from other sites... As your using a 3rd party menu addon.. I can't see them telling you to use IPB for support.

Does that ring the bell?

You don't want to read it because you might be scared to go on a different site even maybe you couldn't see it because you might not be a customer there? and the conversation with them is pasted here at the first place after submitting this feedback?

Yes it is a 3rd party add on to IPB software but more button? See http://community.inv...on=file&id=3613

The 'more' button is part of IPB itself.

It is only displayed if there is not room to fully display all of the normal links without wrapping. If there's only one in the 'more' menu, it's because that one will not fit otherwise. If that's not actually true, it may be a problem with your skin.

Looking at your site, I suspect the 'more' button itself may be factored into the width calculation. That would account for the ~70px gap that's required. The same seems to be true here. Borderline-bug, minimal impact, probably not worth the effort to fix.

Thank you for understanding.

Post it as a bug report in the tracker. Then IPS can investigate it to determine if it's a bug causing it or if there are times when it should do that even if it's only one item.


It is filed in now at http://community.inv...tton-bug-r38514

Sorry i wasn't trying to sound or be rude.. I didn't read that, but as a old customer i recall gettnig flammed for posting / looking for support here for 3rd party support.. I currently have not purchased the fusion menu so I can not take a look at it for you.

Regards, Darren

EDIT:

You could try using "em" for your font-size rather than a fixed size: 13px... After looking at your site on a much lesser resolution you have about 6-7 links in the "More" menu.. if you don't want the "More" menu at all i suggest you look at adding a secondary menu below your main nav.

Your Very Top Menu has a lot of issues on the Drop-Down links (No BG)..

I stand corrected, but that is incredibly minor, the more menu was added for the user that installs many applications and then their bar is messed up. Also agreeing with Ryan H..

Hint, don't put in a bug report linking to a custom skin and not expect some :unsure:
In no way hostilely, the first thing I saw at that link was either a fusionmenu or a promenu on a custom skin... shoot me for coming to the conclusion the wacked display I am presented with visiting the link was part of the bug report.

Maybe to disable more button is not a good idea because what if other people uses a different resolution but i still think it is a bug if there was just one button in more button.

I have a fixed width style and just commented out the offending line in the template, which seemed to work for me.

I'm sure there is a better/smarter way, but it worked so I left it.

globalTemplate


	  </if>

	  <!-- <li id='nav_other_apps' style='display: none'>

	   <a href='#' class='ipbmenu' id='more_apps'>{$this->lang->words['more_apps']} <img src='{$this->settings['img_url']}/useropts_arrow.png' /></a>

	  </li> -->

	 </ul>
