    Announcements

    As of January 31st we will be performing major upgrades to our core Web Server. This upgrade consists of moving from our current webserver which is a Dual Core Xeon with 2GB Ram to a Quad Core Xeon with 4GB Ram.

    This will affect customers utilising the following services:

    * Shared Website Hosting
    * Reseller Website Hosting
    * Email Hosting

    When we perform upgrades such as this, there should be no noticeable downtime. However, if you have personalised your name servers as a reseller please get in touch with us for the new IP's, should anyone else's service not be running correctly please log a support ticket.
    Maybe it started early...

    Sorry guys I was a BETT and therefore couldnt do very much in terms of contacting the host.

    The host has been very good to me and provides it all to me for free, so i dont like to make to much of a fuss!

    The outbound links were going a 404 error because the site it links to is also hosted on the same server!

    All up and ready now though!

    Bug in IE7?

    Hi

    Have been playing with the Prettysimple theme (mostly in Firefox), and was almost ready to go live on our site ... when I suddenly noticed a problem in IE7.

    The dropdown menu drops down OK but stays down when you navigate away from the menu.

    Tested on IE7 in Vista and XP ... same result. Same result on my test site (here) and on the Edumoodle demo.

    Maybe too many of us use Firefox by default that issues in IE take time to be spotted!

    Bug Fix!

    I have been trying various themes with dropdown menus .... all seem to have bugs.

    The Newbury College theme LOOKS great but when I tried to add a resource 'link to file or website', I was unable to get the file upload screen.

    So I had another look at 'Prettysimple' and remembered a similar bug in IE7 with another CMS used at my school - and the same fix works:

    In Edumoodle.css, at the bottom are these lines:

    #topmenu ul li li a:hover{
    background-image: none;
    border-bottom: 1px solid #f59231;
    }

    #topmenu ul li ul {
    left: -999em;
    }

    #topmenu ul li:hover ul ul, #topmenu ul li:hover ul ul ul {
    left: -999em;
    }

    #topmenu ul li:hover ul, #topmenu ul li li:hover ul, #topmenu ul li li li:hover ul {
    left: auto;
    }

    If you replace with:

    #topmenu ul li li a:hover{
    background-image: none;
    border-bottom: 1px solid #f59231;
    min-height:0;
    }

    #topmenu ul li ul {
    left: -999em;
    }

    #topmenu ul li:hover ul ul, #topmenu ul li:hover ul ul ul {
    left: -999em;
    min-height:0;
    }

    #topmenu ul li:hover ul, #topmenu ul li li:hover ul, #topmenu ul li li li:hover ul {
    left: auto;
    min-height:0;
    }


    The 'min-height:0;' line seems to fix the bug (apparently quite common) in IE7!

  10. Thanks to raylec from:

    Does anyone know what the default size of the gif images should be for the entire image to be displayed correctly in the flash banner section?

    Leaving the 3x gif images currently in the slideshow folder causes no issues and allows them to be displayed correctly in the Moodle theme, but when I go in and insert a different image over the same canvas (working in Fireworks) the image displays in Moodle quite distorted. Also, if I move an image to the centre of the canvas it appears strangely on the Moodle theme - sometimes the start of the image appears at the right hand side of the banner and ends at the left hand side as if it's been wrapped around somehow!

    I'm sure that's not the most eloquent explanation I could have written, but I hope someone understands and can help!

    I fixed the gif image issue by just admitting defeat and filling the entire canvas with a graphic. Odd, but works fine.

    Next problem is that IE8 needs to be in compatability mode for the navigation / where are you bit aligns properly at the top of the page.
    (Without Comp View on you have "MoodleHome > Course > Forum" in the middle/right of the heading instead of left aligned. Also does some similar stuff in other modules)

    Anyone know of a fix?

    Hi

    We have downloaded the Edugeek moodle theme and like is a lot! The only problem we are having is that the SCORM package is a problem. The window for each part of a SCORM displays too small to see. This dosn't seem to happen with any of the other themes we have been looking at. Is this a known problem? Any clues?

    Cheers

    Andy
