There is no Account pulldown menu visible when using Opera v10.11. Reported by TWiki:Main/KeithEdmunds at TWiki:Support.SID-00903.

-- TWiki:Main/PeterThoeny - 2010-07-16

There are CSS validation errors on http://twiki.org, which may or may not be the cause of the problem, but should be resolved.

Do you see the account menu on this page in Opera? The bug tracker TWiki does not have the social media share buttons.

-- TWiki:Main.PeterThoeny - 2010-07-20

No. Screenshot attached.

-- TWiki:Main.KeithEdmunds - 2010-07-21

I can't upload images using either Opera or Firefox (just hangs with "Waiting for develop.twiki.org..."). I've put it temporarily at twiki.png

-- TWiki:Main.KeithEdmunds - 2010-07-21

I noticed this intermittent issue myself on develop.twiki.net, attach may hang.

And now attached to this topic:


OK, so that means it is not a ShareMePlugin issue. Issue is with TopMenuSkin using Opera.

Here is the HTML of the top bar:

<table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%">
<tr style="background-image: url(/~twiki4/pub/TWiki/TopMenuSkin/menu-gray-bg.png); background-repeat: repeat-x;">
<td width="40"><img src="/~twiki4/pub/TWiki/TopMenuSkin/spacer.gif" width="40" height="1" alt="" /></td>
<td width="99%">
<div class="twTopMenuTab">
(unordered list of menus: Home, Bugs web, ..., Istanbul)
<div class="twTopMenuTab">
(unordered list of menu: Account)
<td width="40"><img src="/~twiki4/pub/TWiki/TopMenuSkin/spacer.gif" width="40" height="1" alt="" /></td>

May be there is an issue with table cell width? For testing, try to reduce the 99% to 80% and add 20% to the <td> of the Account cell.

I have noticed this CSS issue in IE7 as well. I submitted a question on it SID-00934: IE7 Browser/CSS Issue. It works in IE6, IE8, Firefox.

-- TWiki:Main.MalcolmNeumeyer - 2010-08-10

I have fixed this issue in IE7. There is still a bug in the positioning in IE, but it renders the Account menu correctly. The following file needs to be updated:


original section:

  height: 22px;
  width: auto;
  color: #111111;
  background-image: url(&#37;PUBURLPATH&#37;/&#37;SYSTEMWEB&#37;/TopMenuSkin/menu-gray-bg.png);
  background-repeat: repeat-x;
  overflow: hidden;
  white-space: nowrap;
Changed to:
  height: 22px;
  width: auto;
  color: #111111;
  background-image: url(&#37;PUBURLPATH&#37;/&#37;SYSTEMWEB&#37;/TopMenuSkin/menu-gray-bg.png);
  background-repeat: repeat-x;
  overflow: hidden;
  white-space: nowrap;
  position: relative;
  z-index: 10000;
I added:
  position: relative;
  z-index: 10000;
In IE7 - the positioning is still off (it overhangs the core page body).

-- TWiki:Main.MalcolmNeumeyer - 2010-08-11

This fixes the Account menu option from being hidden, but breaks the menu items from being visible.

-- TWiki:Main.MalcolmNeumeyer - 2010-08-11

This has fixed the issue, and not created any additional issues:

The file /twiki/data/TWiki/TopMenuSkinTopBar.txt needs to be modified. I have updated the following line: Original value: <td width="99%"> New value: <td width="80%">

I did not have to add any additional spacing/length to the account <td>.

-- TWiki:Main.MalcolmNeumeyer - 2010-08-11

Good, thanks for confirming. I added also a style="float:right" to the account cell so that it shows properly right aligned when the browser window width is wide. This is now in SVN trunk and 5.0 branch; TWiki:Plugins.TopMenuSkin is updated as well.

Could someone verify if this fixes the issue on Opera? I leave this bug open until confirmed by Opera.

-- TWiki:Main.PeterThoeny - 2010-08-22

No feedback. Closing this item, assuming it is fixed.

-- TWiki:Main.PeterThoeny - 2010-08-31

I can confirm this is fixed with Opera.
