Hi!
I'm using joomla 2.5 and cloudbase 2.0 template.
I'm trying to use an imagelink as a HOME-buttom instead of a textlink but I can't seem to get rid of
the textlink as it is appearing on the right hand side of the my imagelink.
How do I hide/remove the textlink and use the imagelink only?

Here is a link to how my menubar looks like:

(the text that says "test" next to the image is the one I am trying to get rid of)
Thanks for your help!

Without the site's URL, it is hard to suggest anything. Probably this could be accomplished using some css attributes.


Generally, in these situations you could use the tool FireBug to inspect elements and view the css entries.

The tool FireBug that is available in browsers such as FireFox and Chrome could be used for this purpose. With FireBug you can inspect an element in a web page and find out its css entries and in which file the entries are located. You could even change the css entries to see how it affects the look and feel of your site. Once you are satisfied you could incorporate the changes in the actual file.

Review the document http://docs.joomla.org/Tutorial:Using_Firebug_With_Your_Joomla_Website for more information about how to use FireBug.

I manage it on localhost so I don't know if this link will make any difference?

http://localhost:8888/Joomla_2/

Unfortunately, the URL would not help if it is a localhost. Experiment with FireBug.

Hi!
I downloaded firebug and also css-x-fire plugin in order to be able to save my changes on firebug, but the problem is that my css-x-fire doesnt detect incoming changes i make on firebug, is there anyway to do it "manually?"
I was using IntelliJ family IDE ->RubyMine to install the plugin because it was required?
I am really new with this and have no idea how to make it start working properly.

Through FireBug if you know what to change and in what file the change has to appear, you could edit that file manually using a text editor outside of Joomla! and incorporate the changes.

Note: Make sure to take a copy of the file before editing it.

I can see where the link "test" is on firebug but I have no idea where to find it.

Expand the list item (li) item461. As for as the file in which these css elements reside could be found on the right panel. If needed, you could right click in the file names and open them.

Hi!
I downloaded sIFR module and got a css code which I was instructed to paste at the end of my CSS template before the closing body tag. The only template I found with a < / body > tag was my main template and so I pasted the code but once I saved it my joomla localhost was disabled and I recieved this error message: hTTP- 500 (Internal Server Error)
I really don't know how to access either the backend of my joomla nor find the css main template on my computer.
Please help me!
(the code I pasted on the template ->
<script type="text/javascript">if(typeof sIFR == "function"){sIFR.replaceElement(".contentheading, .componentheading", named({sFlashSrc: "plugins/system/bot_sifr/tradegothic.swf", sColor: "#c64934", sWmode: "transparent"}));}</script>
