Q: Why is my Most Popular / Most Commented list empty?
A: Your Most Popular element refreshes its content every night around midnight. It will be empty until a user clicks on one of your articles. The Most Commented list is refreshed once a week. After the weekly refresh, the list will be empty until a user comments on one of your articles.
Q: How do I make a Teaser show with a large photo?
A: The teaser element will automatically pull in a photo from your article page and display it at 75x75 pixels. To make the photo display in a larger format, check the "Top Story" box in the Teaser element.
Q: Why are the links in my horizontal navigation / tab box dropping to a second line?
A: There is a finite amount of horizontal space on your site. It is important to manage your links so they do not drop down to a second line. For your horizontal navigation, try using parent sections such as "Options" to hold your Sub Pages like About Us, Advertising, etc. If this still does not work for you, please contact our Support Team to discuss other design options for your navigation. This will create a drop down in your navigation and free up some horizontal space. For your tab box - keep the tab titles short, or use numbers for the tab names.
Q: Why are elements from my front page showing up on section pages?
A: The content slots from your front page (Upper Left, Lower Left, Upper Right, Lower Right) automatically populate the content from your front page into any Sub Page you create. If you would like to clear out that space on a Sub Page, you can place an empty HTML element in any of those content slots.
Q: Why are the link colors / navigation colors / masthead image different on one of my sections?
A: Your link colors, navigation colors and masthead image are set in the Customize Layout tab. Each section has its own Customize Layout tab where your front page settings can be overwritten. If you would like to clear out those styles, go into your section's Customize Layout tab and delete any custom values that have been inserted.
