Author & tag pages not loading

Hi Pete,

So sorry for the delay.

Ive just checked on my local copy actually and the content it displaying for me.

Could you perhaps create a ticket with J login and Ftp details so I can look further at your situation? Not sure why it would show on Rasa2 but it sounds possibly like a config issue.

Sorry its taken so long to look at this for you.

Hi Pete,

Just responding here if it helps others.

It's a menu item id issue. So basically there is no menu item for those pages and so it's displaying the front page. Because you have the main content hidden on the front page the theme is hiding the content.

www.joomlabamboo.com/blog/how-to-joomla/implementing-a-fix-for-menu-item-ids-in-joomla

Ive enabled the main content area for the moment so you can see the content display.
Thanks!

OK I suppose the next question is how to make every author & tag page have an itemid without creating a separate menu item for each one...?

Or am i approaching this the wrong way?

Yeah thats a good point actually. You normally handle this by targetting the parent category. Can you select multiple authors in the menu creation? That might be a solution. Otherwise it's likely you have to do one each.
Thanks

it looks like k2 authors have to be done individually, which isn't such a big deal for me.

But k2 tags... no idea what I can do here.... I guess i won't be suppressing anything on the homepage after all.

I just spotted another tag-related (but almost certainly unrelated to the topic at hand) problem -

When I enable tags in 'Item view options in category listings' the tag 'button' gets stretched horizontally, with two fontawesome icons displayed side by side. I think the positioning of the <span class="icon-tag"></span> is off but i can't find where to fix it. Not a showstopper by any means, but I'd like to be able to show tags on those pages.

oops forgot about this small thing too

i've tried it with (i think) them all and it's the same for every one, which probably means it's something i've changed in my custom.css file so i'll go check that now

edit: nope, renamed custom.css and the problem is still there

oh hang on...

on the K2 item pages the html for each tag is

<ul class="itemTags">
<li>
<a href="/index.php?option=com_k2&view=itemlist&task=tag&tag=MYTAG&Itemid=666">
<span>My K2 Item</span>
</a>
</li>
....

and so on

but on the category pages where it's messed up the html for each tag is

<ul class="tags">
<li>
<a href="/index.php?option=com_k2&view=itemlist&task=tag&tag=MYTAG&Itemid=666">
<span class="icon-tag"></span>
MY K2 Item
</a>
</li>
... and so on

If I open up Firebug and delete the <span class="icon-tag"></span> and change <ul class="tags"> to <ul class="itemTags">, the tag renders correctly.

So... where can i change this in the Zenkit templates?

Hi

Can you try adding this to the custom.css file

#zenkit .catItemView ul.tags .icon-tag:before {display:none;}
#zenkit .catItemView ul.tags span {padding:0 margin:0;}

I can't so this via the ticket as you need to renamed the custom.css first

Cheers

better, but still too wide. i'll have a play with it now you've pointed me in the right CSS direction.

is modifying the HTML to match (see previous post) not an option?

Not really

It should remove the padding and margin from the tags - is there still extra space?

yeah there's still a <span class="icon-tag"></span> in there that's knocking it out of whack. A display:none should do it i think

sorry it should have been

#zenkit .catItemView ul.tags .icon-tag:before {display:none;}
#zenkit .catItemView ul.tags span {padding:0; margin:0;}

missing colon on second line
