I have tried to get the "Orbit box" to work on my site, but i'm not able to get it to work correctly.

The interesting thing is that it works to "two thirds", please se attached image of the box

The problem I face is that the "select" box do not show.

Missin select box

 

In my fault finding have i done this without any luck.

  • Fault find my own code of "box.php"
  • Downloaded and used the "box.php" file from "lesson_5_responsive_blue_masters" download for the class.
  • Tested with both IE9 and Google Chrome but the problem persist.
  • Did have Metor slides activated , but have deactivated it to not get any conflicts.
When I do look at the  rendered page code do i also don't get any markup for the box exept the "ID" and "Class" - eg the part about that's the plugin is missing or short code do not apply.
I do run Thesis on a Swedish version of WP3.5 and Thesis 2.0.3.1
Any suggestions what can be the problem to this two problems might be?
Best regards

Gerth based on your image, it looks to me like there is a failure in your options method.  My suggestion would be to email your box code so I can look at it.  It's probably just a typo.

Hi Rick

 

I have a hard time to think that's a typo as the code for the box is the one provided by you together with the lesson.

As i couldn't get my own written code to work - even after I compared it to your code in NotePad++ compare mode, so did I copy paste your code into my site. And it was after this I took my screen dump. 

The only thing that's been altered is a reference to the language file.

 

But - can you believe it - Problem solved ?!

Before I thought about posting my code did I logon to my site once more - and hey it works !

The only thing thats happend between my first post and this one - I've restarted my computer yell

So I have to add that to my fault finding list - Has computer been rebooted embarassed

I have actually during the last days just hibernated my computer so I would stay on your site and the lesson I was working on, so that must have screwed something up in the browsers that didn't go away with a restart or cleaning the browser history.

 

Thanks for your help.
