http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=72279 - Original hack for 3.0.x

What is this?
This will display an information bar across the top of the browser window that appears to be like the Information Bar that is from Windows XP SP2. When the user clicks it they will be sent to the registration page for your forums. This is not a popup.

If the user is logged in then this will not display at all. This only appears on the page for people who are not logged in.

Thanks - nice script, however I have found a few problems with it. In firefox there is a horizontal scroll bar, let me tell you why this is.

You have set the links to be 100% in width and ALSO gave them padding. The box model example shows that the total width = Width + margin + padding + border. Therefore firefox sees the width as 100% + PADDING which is why there is a horizontal scrollbar.

I tried adding another element inside the div to handle the padding with no luck I am just explaining to you what the problem is exactly.

Ya, I had noticed the same thing too ... I just never ended up trying to fix it. I've been really busy. I'll try to look into the problem some more. Thanks for reminding me...I probably would have forgotten for good.

Ok, I am pretty sure I fixed it, there was also a Safari issue by not using hex colours for the background. New code below, maybe add it into the main release once your happy with it?

infobar.css

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Add the following code in your header (no sound):

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Note also that there was no need for a table at the top of the site, it can be done fully in CSS, this has been fixed.

Thanks,
Michael

when i get a quick chance i will. but to try and explain what i was seeing was a tiny bar in firefox. it wasn't even tall enough for the font, or just barely tall enough. it defintely had no padding around the text at all.

but i'll grab a screenshot for you when i can.

*nod* the <p> has padding around it so when I did it without the padding there was nothing and it showed up really small.

Thanks for the hint ... I'll update the code.

Exactly - Make sure also to remove the table that you had at the top - there was no need for it..

1.05 Release

I've made the changes to the files that Bytecon has suggested to fix the problem in Firefox where a horizontal scroll bar would show up.
