News Fader bug with IE

(1/2) > >>

I haven't been able to test this on any other browsers, but it seems IE doesn't like short color codes when it comes to the SMF fader javascript function.

Reference Topic:

I don't know enough about javascript to suggest a fix, but wanted to post for others to verify/test.

It's not only short codes, but named colours too that have this issue.

* IncognitoMuse already fixed it in his own code, mostly by rewriting the fader to use jQuery and do it with opacity rather than fudging the colour values.

I'm not sure this is a bug in SMF. The function should be more robust though in the future.

Well, it's not a bug, in that the core software isn't afflicted by it. But it is a problem that it intentionally hinders themer creativity by explicitly requiring to find a background colour in the newsfader area when instead it could just use opacity to hide and not require a colour (which would mean patterned backgrounds aren't affected, while they are now)

"Intentionally" is not accurate.

But yes, it's not as themers-friendly as it should be.
