    I've installed this tonight with no problem. Looks like an easy plugin. Otherwise, is there any way to extend the max chars? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Once again it's IE causing pain (spelled AAIIIIIEEE!)

    Thanks Kuroi a very useful contribution - I'm having trouble getting CSS to apply to the box however...

    the edit you provided in the readme did remove the bullets, but I added text-align left and it worked in FF, but IE is keeping it centered.

    The text style is also applying a:visited { from the stylesheet

    I can't seem to figure out how to create a class to override anything else that is trying to apply to it --- I don't understand enough CSS such as <ul> <li> and <a class=>

    Thanks for the help

    this appears to be due to padding (it is left justified but offset rather than centered).

    I can't seem to track down the source of the pad or margin though.

    My apologies. I forgot about that old IE habit of adding lots of margin to UL tags. Silly of me, given the number of times I've explained this in the forums. Add the highlighted line to the CSS in the readme and take your text-align:left out.
    #manufacturerslistContent ul {
    list-style:none;
    padding:0;
    margin:0;
    }
    and let me know how that goes.

    Default Re: Simple manufacturer list to replace scrolling list - add-on now available

    I added a little bit of left padding and now things align nicely and look the same in both FF - IE... just to take up forum space I've included a snip from my stylesheet -- I want to make the text in the box smaller but it is getting ignored and reverting to a:visited from line 29 of the stylesheet
    How do we create a class for the <a class level that will supersede other CSS?

    I know there is extra code in what I have but it might give clues to those intrested:
    }
    #manufacturerslistContent ul {
    list-style: none;
    list-style-type: none;
    font-size: 10px;
    background-color: #999966;
    margin: 0em;
    padding-left: .25em;
    }
    #manufacturerslistContent ul li{
    padding-left: .25em
    }
    #manufacturerslistContent.sideBoxContent {
    font-size:10px;
    }
    #manufacturerslistHeading {
    background-image: url(../images/navbarbackground1.jpg);
    }
    THANKS

    You're heading in the right direction, but with a twist against which i would strongly advise.

    I recommend using ems for font sizes and pixels for horizontal widths especially, margins, padding and borders.

    Why?

    On the font sizes: most in Zen Cart are already expressed in ems and will scale in all browsers if a user who is getting on a bit (like me) and has dodgy eyes (like me) needs to increase the font size using browser settings (it's only a matter of time ). All browsers will do the same for font sizes expressed in pixels too ... except for your favourite browser, Internet Explorer. That will stick resolutely to pixel size given, even when all text around it is expanding nicely.

    For horizontal widths: there are some nice sites around that expand nicely as the font size is increased due to well-judged use of ems for all dimensions. The Apple Zen template is a good example. But you really have to know what you're doing otherwise the results can be catastrophic. Here's what goes wrong. In Zen Cart the side columns are usually a fixed width defined in pixels (not always, but usually). If the text size is increased, it needs more space, but if padding is expressed in ems that expands too, leaving the text not more space, but less. The only place it can go is into a very tall, sometimes very thin, often illegible and always unsightly column.

    Hope this helps.

    oh aged yet wise...

    I read somewhere long ago about where/how to set the starting em but it has been lost to me. Reason I went with px is because I was so frustrated changing CSS without really knowing what the starting em was... In lieu of searching maybe I can impose upon you to offer us tutelage yet again. You really have enlightened me (and others I am sure) on CSS -- I can see Zen from here....not there yet...but ever so much closer

    Thanks

    Default Re: Simple manufacturer list to replace scrolling list - add-on now available

    the box header has become possessed with a link...

    the header links to product info pages that seem to be whatever the previously visited product was - but not presenting as the manufacturer's list - just to the product - and then if you keep clicking scrolls through the list (I only have a few test products so all characteristics not known) -

    this is an issue because of font decorations visited/links etc -- and navigation confusion...

    I tried looking at the tpl_manufacturers_list.php and manufacturers_list.php to see if I could disable any links and I actually saw this:


    $title = BOX_HEADING_MANUFACTURERS;
    $title_link = false;
    any ideas?

    THANKS
