    Em 7 Rem Confusion

    and setting that in px would allow the tools to manipulate the base font size?

    That would explain why that wasn't working then.

    Em 7 Rem Confusion

    Ok Ingolme, I think I understand. What I had been doing was the following, in the hope that by increasing the body font size would lead to all the values increasing proportionately (that is the point of rem and em, right?). But it wasn''t working... body{font-size: 16px;} button{font-size: 0.825rem; padding: 1em 1.2em;} What would I need to do to achieve this? Thanks

    Em 7 Rem Confusion

    Hi there, I just need something clearing up: I thought giving a font a rem made it relative to the font size set on the body. Then, giving that text's container an em would make it resize based on the contained text's size. However the text only appears to resize when the body font size is adjusted when set with an em. Am I doing this the wrong way round, or worse missing the point of em's and rem's altogether? Help appreciated here :)
  5. Thanks for your help with this dsoneuk. At this point in time it is the only option. It makes sense what you are saying, and can see how this is a less-than ideal scenario. I will continue to explore options...
  6. Hi there, I have a scenario where I have no option but to absolute position some elements within a div. So I set the parent to position relative, the children absolute, job done. But if I float the parent container to the right, it jumps outside its wrapper. Is there a way to stop this happening? .wrapper{} .parent{position: relative; float: right;} .child{position:absolute;} <div class="wrapper"> <div class="parent"> <div class="child"></div> <div class="child"></div> <div class="child"></div> </div> </div> Thanks

    Can Input field fill remaining width?

    Thank you, this is well considered! help is much appreciated
  8. Hi, I am attempting to create a form control with an input field in the centre, and plus/minus buttons either side. The buttons have an absolute position set so they remain at either edge of the parent container, with the input (ideally) adjusting in with to make up the remaining width. Only in practice it doesn't. I can't really set a width to the input as it needs to adjust the width to for different screen widths. The code: .responsive-container{position: relative; width: 100%;} .minus-button{position: absolute; left: 0; width: 40px;} input{position: absolute; left: 40px; right: 40px; width: auto;} .plus-button{position: absolute; right: 0; width: 40px;} <div class="responsive-container"> <a class="minus-button">-</a> <input> <a class="plus-button">+</a> </div> Hopefully you can see what I am trying to achieve here. If I set the input to 100% width, it goes beyond the container because it has been budged by 40px. Setting it's width to auto doesn't seem to fill the space correctly. Any pointers here appreciated!

    Fixed sidebar issue

    Ah good shout, Thanks for your help on this.

    Fixed sidebar issue

    Hi there, I am trying to build an expanding sidebar menu that is absolute positioned to the left of the screen and spans top to bottom. I don't want to be using fixed position, as the sidebar would have elements that would be hidden beneath the fold on mobile landscape that wouldn't be accessible. So it needs to scroll with the page content. However when using absolute positioning, the container finishes wherever the bottom of the browser is, and is simply cut off there, which looks bad if the rest of the screen content requires scrolling. What I am using: .expanded-menu, .collapsed-menu { position: absolute; overflow: hidden; background-color:$dark-blue; top: 0px; left: 0px; bottom: 0px; z-index: 5; @include transition (all 0.5s ease-in-out); } .collapsed-menu { width: 50px; } .expanded-menu { width: 170px; } Am not sure if this is asking the impossible, or whether the answer is staring me in the face and I've looked too long at it. Help appreciated here Thanks

    Hide/Show if elements are checked in forms

    Ah great, I can see this now thanks dsonesuk for your help!
  12. Hi there, I am trying to only allow a 'next' button to show if a form element is selected. For some reason I am only succeeding to hide the button, and not reveal when the radio button is selected. I am sure it should be relatively simple... The code: .ampwizard .button {opacity: 0;} input[type="radio"]:checked .ampwizard .button{opacity: 1;} <div class="ampwizard"><input type="submit" class="button" name="install-next" value="Next" /></div> Help appreciated with thanks!

    Rule being ignored

    Hi there, My htaccess is ignoring one of the rules I have put in! I don't imagine I am blameless here, so am hoping someone can point out what I have done wrong and how to fix it. The lines in bold (forwarding the non www request to the address with the www) seems to be failing. I tried re-ordering the rules, but no joy as yet. If someone could help me as to what needs amending here I would be really appreciative. Thanks! <IfModule mod_rewrite.c> RewriteEngine on RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^oldsite.co.uk$ [OR] RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www.oldsite.co.uk$ RewriteRule (.*)$ http://www.newsite.co.uk/$1 [R=301] RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f RewriteRule ^([^\.]+)$ $1.php [NC] RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^newsite.co.uk$ RewriteRule (.*) http://www.newsite.co.uk/$1 [R=301] Redirect 301 /oldpage http://www.newsite.co.uk

    htaccess rule not working

    Thank you justsomeguy. I am assuming it is the ',L' that needs removing from each of the brackets? That is the danger of taking different snippets from different tutorials I suppose. Thanks for the help

    htaccess rule not working

    Hi there, I am using a few of re-write rules, the last of which is not working. I assume it clashes with the others in some way? <IfModule mod_rewrite.c> RewriteEngine on RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^oldurl.co.uk$ [OR] RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www.oldurl.co.uk$ RewriteRule (.*)$ http://www.newurl.co.uk/$1 [R=301,L] RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f RewriteRule ^([^\.]+)$ $1.php [NC,L] RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^newurl.co.uk$ RewriteRule (.*) http://www.newurl.co.uk/$1 [R=301,L] </IfModule> Any pointers here would be greatly appreciated!
