drupal – problem with quicktabs – Education Career Blog

I have quite a strange problem using quicktabs. I used the framework theme to develop a custom look for my site. I used quicktabs in the center content area to create a tabbed look for placing links within the body. Everything is working fine. However, when I view the site in IE8 at a resolution if 1024*768, I have trouble with a few links. It seems that sometimes the first link under my buttons are difficult to click. The link is there – I can actually click it, but it is very difficult to locate – it only appears at the very beginning of the link text – it is not the first letter, it seems to be only the first pixel.

I looked at the source and everything seems to be correct – I can’t figure out what could be wrong.
Has anyone seen any similar behavior that might be able to point me in the right direction for a fix for this?

Thanks for any thoughts.

Edit – I looked further into it and I think it has something to do with my CSS. I disabled css in ie8, and every link is clickable, even the ones that were difficult to locate earlier. I guess there must be an overlapping of containers or something, so I will have to start messing around with those files.


It sounds like a CSS thing, have you inspected the elements in question using the developer tools (press F12) to see whats going on?


I found the solution. In the style.css file for my theme, the .block had position: relative; applied to it. removing that bit of themeing appears to have fixed the link issue.
