Using Mootools rounded corners and slide-in divs - can't click links

Posted on 2008-10-21

I'm using Mootools to create a sliding div effect overlaying an image, this can be viewed here -

I'm also using a rounded corners script again using Mootools.

The problem I'm having is I'm using these buttons to link to different pages and in Firefox it's simply not working at all, whereas in IE it's fine?

I've tried making the image the link, but once the div has overlayed it, it doesn't work?

Any ideas?

The rounded corners divs are overlaying your content div, covering it.
IE doesn't actually work properly, if you look closely at the rounded corner.

It seems ok at this end in IE7? Any idea of how to fix it?

var image1 = new RoundedCorners('.prod_img', {overlay: true, radius: 20, cls: 'image'});
change overlay: true to overlay: false

The above will make the rounded corners stop working.
If you are ok with making the entire thing a link, not just when the text pops up:

Put overlay: true back.
Make the link enclose the entire prod_img
        <div class="prod_item">
		<a href="product-list.asp?id=3">
          <div class="prod_img"> <img src="/images/designer-wall-icon.jpg" alt="" width="202" height="102" />
            <div class="prod_desc">
              <p><a><span>Urban Inspirations</span>Velit esse cillum dolore ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat.</a></p>

Is that good practice though, putting a <div> in an <a>?

No, it won't validate, which from your well-formed source seems important to you.

I was able to quickly reproduce rounded corners that won't overlay the entire box, so it's possible, but the rounded corners script you are using would need to be rewritten (most of it at least).

z-index: 3 needs to be removed from the main rounded corner div.
The corner divs would each need to be given absolute positioning in the right positions, instead of stacking them, and z-index: 3 to each.
.imageBottomRight {
position: absolute; top: 82px; left: 182px; width: 20; height: 20; z-index: 3

This seems to be a common problem in all of the implementations of rounded corners.
