    (Sorry, new thread as I couldn’t find existing)

    I had 3 other Mac users try my Royals site and they have the same display “problem”. The menu icons are underneath the name bar using Colours (when logged in). Underneath the HTML block when not. Same too in Xenea. All are using Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan and latest Safari. The attached is but 1 example

    The only vaguely possible way I could address this would be if you provide the same image from each theme. If one of them does NOT show this effect I might be able to compare the code and suggest a correction to colors. You could also try the colors theme at a webtrees site to see if that has the problem.

    Or, get your MAC technical guru to tell you / me what needs changing.

    Alternatively I may need to add a warning to the downloads page that kiwitrees may not be suitable for use on MACs.

    (ps – I deleted the previous discussion as it was unhelpful and confusing to others, wandered off into vague and irrelevant discussion about ipods/ipads etc, and never adequately addressed my requests for tests).

    I’ve snapped the other themes shown below. Went to webtrees demo and set that to Colours and snapped. I trust you never have to exclude Macs. There’s a lot of Apple smartphones out there that would be affected too. Am I really the only Mac user you have?

    First is your webtrees theme.
    theme-webtrees

    Next was your Xenea theme.
    theme-Xenea

    Now your kiwitrees theme.
    theme-kiwitrees

    And as requested, went over to the webtrees site and used their demo file set to Colours. Will upload in part 2 as I think I’ve max’d out

    Thanks. I’ll see what can be done either in the next release, or the one after. The webtrees comparison is useful. It points to a couple of features we have that they don’t which might be involved here.

    Am I really the only Mac user you have?

    Either that or the first to report this issue.

    Just for interest – have you tried it on any other web browser than Safari, on your same computer?

    The site works in Firefox. But with default set at Verdana 18, it’s still small for me to use regularly for my sites.

    The site works in Firefox.

    I thought that might be the case.

    I think you have a custome css file in your colors theme (mystyle.css). Add the following lines to it, then clear your browser cache and refresh the page.
    This ‘might’ help in Safari, but may also break Firefox. If so I can find a better solution at next release.

    /* flex adjustments */
    body {
    	height: initial;
    	min-height: initial;
    	display: block;
    
    }
    #content {
    	flex: none;
    	ms-flex: none;
    	-webkit-flex: none;
    }

    I added the code to mystypes.css . There one already there is for PLAC, that you gave me. It works fine now in Colours; not in webtrees; not in Xenea; okay in kiwitrees.

    In Firefox, all themes work.

    OK. I should be able to add that in a way that doesn’t break other themes with the next release.

    Meanwhile I’ll leave it up to you whether you retain that modification for now or not.
