I am makeing a site on http:/new.uffnorge.org

I am using Artister 3.0 to make the template
I am using a Slide show in TOP1 and a green menu on TOP3
Somehow the green menu fills 50% of the with, but I was expecting it to fill only 34%.
See attached picture

Index.php shows:
<?php echo $view->positions(array('top1' => 33, 'top2' => 33, 'top3' => 34), 'art-block'); ?>

In firebug i can see that table is set to 50%
I change this in firebug to 34% and it looks right then

Question:
Where do I edit to change the 50%?
I cant find it in Index.php or Template.css so it must be elsewhere?

hai,

There are two things that you need to concentrate

1) Look that below classes from your joomla template CSS

art-vmenublock
art-vmenublock-body
art-vmenublockcontent
art-vmenublockcontent-body
art-vmenu

class="t"

2) Make view source and see the page,where there is menu problem

a bulk of "span" tags are created having the following classes

<span class="l"></span>
<span class="r"></span>
<span class="t"></span>

look at these too

Hi
Thanks for reply
I have looked and I cant find anything saying "50%"

If I do a text search in my template.css, should I not be able to find 50% as thats what it says in the html window or am I wrong?

I was thinking as I can not see the 50% anywhere it cant be in the template.css where I have to look for the solution. Is that wrong?


Regards
Morten

I remember having this problem in Artiseer.
You need to be looking in the functions.php file.

I had something like this

function artxPositions(&$document, $positions, $style)
      {
            ob_start();
            if (count($positions) == 4) {
                  if (artxCountModules($document, $positions[0])
                        && artxCountModules($document, $positions[1])
                        && artxCountModules($document, $positions[2])
                  && artxCountModules($document, $positions[3]))
                  {
                        ?>
<table class="position" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0">
<tr valign="top">
  <td width="25%"><?php echo artxModules($document, $positions[0], $style); ?></td>
  <td width="25%"><?php echo artxModules($document, $positions[1], $style); ?></td>
  <td width="25%"><?php echo artxModules($document, $positions[2], $style); ?></td>
  <td width="25%"><?php echo artxModules($document, $positions[3], $style); ?></td>
</tr>
</table>


and changed the percentages there..

Hi. Thanks for your reply
I got it fixed but in the index.php file
As artister has top1,top2 and top3 and I only used Top1 and top3, top 2 collapsed
I therefore removed the top2 from index.php and sat top1 to 74% and top3 to 26%
That worked
Your idea above led me to the right place
Thanks
