Widget popup off center

Postby aliciastaz » Wed Feb 29, 2012 5:29 pm

I have an auction in a front page widget. When you click the auction to bid, it opens it off center and to the bottom of the screen. Please help. : )

Hi,

There's multiple things wrong with your theme. It looks like the theme has a hardcoded version of jQuery, which you can see if you view the source on your theme:

Code: Select all
<script src="http://www.earthsrocks.com/wp-content/themes/mazine/js/jquery-1.5.js"></script>

Plus, it's loading another version of jQuery a little bit further down:

Code: Select all
<script type='text/javascript' src='http://www.earthsrocks.com/wp-includes/js/jquery/jquery.js?ver=1.7.1'></script>

So I would tell the theme author to fix those things first as they might cause you potential problems later down the line. Not too mention, it's a royal mess of calling everything jQuery under the sun. Themeforest themes are really not coded well, sorry to say that to you.

But I think the main problem is WP E-commerce and their use of a custom Thickbox.js here:

Code: Select all
<script type='text/javascript' src='http://www.earthsrocks.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-e-commerce/wpsc-core/js/thickbox.js?ver=Instinct_e-commerce'></script>

I have no idea why they ship their own version when it's available in WordPress and we call it locally from the core folders of WordPress for our popup. Plus, there's another version of a fancy box loading with your theme here:

Code: Select all
<script src="http://www.earthsrocks.com/wp-content/themes/mazine/js/fancybox/jquery.fancybox-1.3.4.pack.js"></script>

This could cause a problem because if fancybox is called in the same way as thickbox, then jquery won't know which to use. Again, a theme issue.

So I wish I could help you more, but it's really not WP Auctions fault here. If you find that the popup does not work for you, I would suggest embedding the auctions in a Post/Page.

You can still use the sidebar widget and it will link to the Post/Page, as long as you form a relationship between the auctions and a Post/Page in the "Show auction in AJAX Popup?:" setting.

Hope that helps.

Yikes! I will take a look at all those things. Thank you for your input even though it is not really a WP Auctions issue. I sincerely appreciate it!
