Hi,

I've been looking at this problem for a day or two now and I really can't  get to the bottom of the issue!

Go To:

http://www.hotelresevationsystem.com/index.php?option=com_reservations&task=destinations&Itemid=1

And view the country icons they are all unordered and not sitting correctly on the page, can anyone give me an idea how to correct this?

Thanks in advance.

Lee

Hello,

add float:left; to

div.reserv50 img, img.resimg {reservations.css (line 86)
}

and div.resdestbox {reservations.css (line 85)
}

you will also need to change .clear to

.clear {standard.css (line 48)
clear:both;
}

I have done as you say but the section that contains the flags drops to the bottom of the page plus the flags have no space between them, I guess I should have been a little more descriptive in the question so sorry for that!

How can I fix this though?

It was the mod to standard.css that made the box extend, I've removed this edit for now.

Hmmm, ok a different approach:

.resdestbox {
min-height:54px;
height:auto !important;
height:54px;
position:relative
}
.resdestbox img {
left:2px;
position:absolute;
top:2px
}

Then the information next to each image needs to go in its own container div:

<div class="resdestboxInfo">

<span class="restitle"><a class="restitle" title="England" href="index.php?option=com_reservations&amp;task=location&amp;lid=4&amp;Itemid=1">England</a></span><br/>1 Hotel<br/><a style="font-size: 0.9em;" class="reservlink" title="England" onclick="window.open('http://www.hotelresevationsystem.com/index2.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=53&Itemid=1', 'LocationDetails', 'status=no,toolbar=no,scrollbars=yes,titlebar=no,menubar=no,resizable=yes,width=700,height=500,directories=no,location=no');" href="javascript:void(null);">Area information</a>

</div>

and css:

.resdestboxInfo {
margin-left:56px
}


Hope this helps

How do I add the code below?

i.e. Which file needs to be edited?


<div class="resdestboxInfo">
 
<span class="restitle"><a class="restitle" title="England" href="index.php?option=com_reservations&amp;task=location&amp;lid=4&amp;Itemid=1">England</a></span><br/>1 Hotel<br/><a style="font-size: 0.9em;" class="reservlink" title="England" onclick="window.open('http://www.hotelresevationsystem.com/index2.php?option=com_content&amp;task=view&amp;id=53&amp;Itemid=1', 'LocationDetails', 'status=no,toolbar=no,scrollbars=yes,titlebar=no,menubar=no,resizable=yes,width=700,height=500,directories=no,location=no');" href="javascript:void(null);">Area information</a>
 
</div>

Ok, dont worry about. You can do this:

.resdestbox {
min-height:54px;
height:auto !important;
height:54px;
padding-left:55px;
position:relative;
}


Notice the padding-left entry
