Votes covering post

edited March 2013 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8

I just recently installed the votes plugin and the vote up/down graphic is covering the posts. My forum is embedded into Media Wiki, which could possibly be what complicates things. Could I in some way fix this?

    The .Votes element is positioned absolutely and therefore only "works" out-of-the-box with the default theme. What you could do, is position it statically and then float it like this:

    ul.MessageList div.Meta span.Votes {
        position: static; /* Reset the position attribute to default */
        float: left;
        margin-right: 15px; /* Just to add some distance to the post meta  */
    }
    

    This would look like this:

    deleted - I didn't see kasper's post (it wasn't there when I started this message.).

    kasper had a better solution.

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

    }
    

    This didn't really change anything, unless I didn't do it right. I replaced the existing code for ul.MessageList div.Meta span.Votes with yours and nothing at all happened. But thanks for the response!

    I added it to embed friendly's custom.css, it still changes nothing though.

    EDIT: It works now, thanks a lot. It just had to take a little time.
