Description Roy Kimbrell 2006-03-20 21:43:42 UTC
As illustrated by the URL above, the links in the Mediawiki site navigation box
become "inactive."  That is, they do not appear as links and can't be clicked.  
When cliking on them or mousing over them they appear as text except you cannot 
select the text to copy it.  The top three links (Main Page, News Updates, and 
Recent Changes) are affected.  In addition the box title "site navigation" 
cannot be selected to be copied (the other titles can be).  You can click on the
banner and get to the main page.  This was a problem even before we installed the

The occurs in Linux and Windows XP versions of Firefox 1.5.  It does not occur
in IE 6.0.  This occurs in all instances of MediaWiki we've installed.

Reproducible: Always

If you visit the site above, you'll see the login page.  If you would like a
valid user ID and password please ask - I'd be happy to oblige.  However,
the site navigation links behave on this page as they do on all (of course).

This is almost certainly due to some property of your custom skin's layout, 
markup, or stylesheet.

Note that it doesn't pass the W3C HTML validator, you might check that.
Comment 2 Roy Kimbrell 2006-03-20 22:16:17 UTC
Hmm.  Okay.  I'll try the validator.  Thanks.
Comment 3 Roy Kimbrell 2006-03-20 23:28:41 UTC
Eliminated the "hover" area where the original logo was.  Works fine now.  Thanks.
