Installed it into 1.3.7 and it only scrolls successfully in Firefox.
Both IE 6 & IE 7 show scrolling text and the images are displayed static. All the images are displayed further down the page, in a vertical column, all are static.
I have Image Handler 2 installed. That might be the cause.
The scrolling on the demo page displays fine in both my IE 6 & IE7. So it's something that is different about my site.
Will have a bit more of a look at it a bit later when I get some time.
Actually this is going to be a CSS problem isn't it.
No it's Image Handler 2 that causes the scrolling problem with IE 6 & IE7.
I've reproduced the problem on another Zen Cart install using default classic template.
On default classic template, if you install Image Handler 2, then the scrolling breaks. Uninstall IH2 and scrolling works again.
IH2 also breaks Scrolling What's New Sidebox V1.0.
Yeah, thanks Misty. Nothing wrong with what you have done.
A big thanks for doing it actually.
I have found the source of the scrolling problems in sideboxes with IE 6 & IE 7.
It's the fact that IH2 does a " style="position:relative" " on the images in those sideboxes. Remove this CSS style and the problem is fixed.
Have a look in includes/classes/bmz_image_handler.class.php, right at the end of the file.
You will see:
return $parameters . 'style="position:relative" onmouseover="showtrail(' . "'$products_image_zoom'...
Just remove the offending style so you end up with:
return $parameters . 'onmouseover="showtrail(' . "'$products_image_zoom'...
And scrolling in sideboxes will work again.
But this breaks image hover functionality offered with Image Handler for the entire site. We need some way of testing for whether you are actually in a sidebox or not. Or even specially if we are in Featured sidebox.
I've also posted this info in the IH2 thread.
Misty, thank you for this scrolling box.
I just have one issue that I'm trying to work out. When the scroll reaches the end of the list, the first 5 products on the list reload and the 1st on the list only shows for a slit second (not long enough to click on).
I know that there is a solution out there, but I can't seem to figure it out. I've tried changing the behavior from scroll to slide and that didn't do the trick. Any ideas?
Here's a link
Results! Why, man, I have gotten a lot of results.
I know several thousand things that won't work.
Designed to include product images, your site config does not appear to include images..OR
Try slowing down scrolling rate...
We now have a fix to the scrolling issues thanks to RedrikShuhart. It's very simple.
It still has a little position quirk in IE6, but good enough for me. IE7 & Firefox work perfectly.
Thanks again Misty for a great contrib.
