Help required with setting correct nugget setting.

Hi guys,

Recently I made a little code whereby a small drop down menu is placed and when one of the items in it is selected it puts in data into the comments field.

I'm trying to use nuggets to get the drop down to appear in the correct position but I'm failing to get it precisely correct. Either it ends up appearing at different positions or the css messes up.


I've tried various weights (-10 - -5) and neither seems to make it go in the correct position. Are there any ideas as to how I can get it there?

Kind regards,


  • PS: the code is: <script type="text/javascript"> function htmlData(selectValue,targetTextArea) { // alert("select box changed to : '" + selectValue + "'"); var txtNode=document.createTextNode(selectValue); var textArea=document.getElementById(targetTextArea); textArea.appendChild(txtNode); } </script> <form method="post"> <select name="colour" id="selbox" onchange="htmlData(this.value,'CommentBox')" /> <option value="#">-Colours-</option> <option value="<font color='pink'></font>">Pink</option> <option value="<font color='green'></font>">Green</option> <option value="<font color='blue'></font>">Blue</option> </select>
  • Have you had a look at the code that puts that spell checker where it is? I would use that as a starting point.

    Had a look, took a shot but isnt really happening seeing that I suck at coding :P

    Attempted a little test though:
    if (in_array($Context->SelfUrl, array("comments.php", "post.php"))) { class CommentForm_AddColourPop extends Control { function Render() { echo"Hello"; } } $CommentForm_AddColourPop = $Context->ObjectFactory->NewContextObject($Context, "CommentForm_AddSpellColourPop"); $Page->AddControl("Page_Render", $CommentForm_AddSpellColourPop, $Configuration["CONTROL_POSITION_FOOT"]); } A fatal, non-recoverable error has occurred Technical information (for support personel): Error Message The "CommentForm_AddSpellColourPop" class referenced by "CommentForm_AddSpellColourPop" does not appear to exist. Affected Elements ObjectFactory.NewObject();

    .. fatality comes my way when I attempt these things lol.
