Hi there, i need to apologize because i have a lot to do right now and i can't provide so much support as i would like. So please be patient with me I will try to get back to you asap.

ja-purity css problem

Some people encountert some css problems using the ja-purity template. To fix these problems with "Horizon Slim" 0.2.6_RC3 add the following code to your css file:

#ja-header ul.neHS li.neHS,  
#ja-mainnav ul.neHS li.neHS, 
#ja-content ul.neHS li.neHS, 
#ja-topsl ul.neHS li.neHS { 
   margin: 0; 
   overflow: hidden; 
   padding: 0; 
   position: relative;

& (ampersand) in urls problem

if you encounter an error like:

Warning: DOMDocument::loadHTML() [domdocument.loadhtml]: 
htmlParseEntityRef: expecting ';' in Entity

it is normaly caused by the & (ampersands) in urls like:

<a href="index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=someID"></a>

this needs to be

<a href="index.php?option=com_content&amp;view=article&amp;id=someID"></a>

normally the tidy support takes care of this issue. But on some servers you do not have tidy support - so you have to do this by hand.

Problem with url not loading until auto play complete's first cycle
Hi there, i am developing a Joomla site and would really like to use the "Horizon Slim" Joomla module as the main menu in the site.
I am developing the site locally on my iMac so not able to let you see it live on the web.

I think the module you guys have developed is fantastic and very customisable.

The problem i am having is with slides collapsing while cursor is still over them.
The module loads perfectly and looks exactly as i wish, the slides open when rolled over but collapse soon after.
The url links only become active after each slide has completed auto play, not straight way as needed for a menu.
The auto play works just fine though.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Text-Align CSS Center Quirk (Repost - Posted in Incorrect Forum)
[Edit: I apologize for previously posting this in the incorrect forum. I do not know if this issue applies to the "Presentation Slider Slim" since I am using the "Horizon Slim" module]

In horizon.css, I changed the ul.neHS text-align from "left" to "center". Interestingly, this results in *only* the titles with more than one word being centered. One word titles remain left justified. Any thoughts?


Thanks for your help and patience!!

Bug in Autoplay?
Hi, I'm using these settings:
Start Slide = 1
Auto Play = "yes"
Force Collapse = "yes"

This will NOT open the first slide on load. I'll have to wait for a full circle (set in the "Auto Play Speed" option).

Horizon Slim problems in Google Chrome and Safari
Hi, I have sorted out the IE7 issue using the Beez template html folder as suggested in this forum - an excellent workaround. However, the module does not work properly in Chrome and Safari (Mac and PC versions). The problem is that the first image appears fine and the slider works on mouseclick, partially covering the first image, but the remaining images do not display. Does anyone have any ideas on this please? Cheers David

Problem with Internet Explorer
The problem is that horizon doesn't show up inside of table-tags (html). Test it with the joomla-template "beez"! To overwrite that what joomla gives out (table or div) simply copy the "html"-directory of the beez template into your template and add one line to the file "templateDetails.xml" of your template.

First - congratulations on a super module, and thanks!

Is there any possibility of adding a feature that permits a random selection of slides on each load? It would be great to be able to constantly vary the images being displayed on a site that I have built. I envisage that 2 options would control this feature:

1. A toggle - random on or off
2. An option box - number of images to randomly add to a set

Perhaps an additional set of options that allow all horizonslim data articles assigned to a special category to be used for the randomised selection? This would be a great way to have a front page slider that randomly selects images from other parts of a website.

Would love to see this feature!

Re: Problem with last item missing
I had the same problem as kreiach and saw it was something to do with the calculated widths of the tags. By reducing one of them by 1px the last image is displayed.
The way round it (for me at least) was to set the total width (in the advanced parameter section) to 1px less than the width of the containing div. Hope this helps.

Problem with last item missing
Thanks for the great control. Everything looks like exactly what I'm looking for, except for one problem. The last item always comes out blank (white).

I've tried different images, switching the order of the images, resiving the markup, trying different browsers, adding more items... no mater what I do, the last item is alway blank.

I'm using ja-purity, and I've even included the CSS snippit above.

IE and Tables
Just download Horizon slim and it's pretty impressive on FF.
On IE, i does not display when i nest the slider inside a table.
This is some examples:
- With no tables, it works in FF and IE:
With the div nested in a tble it does not work:

I tried to remove the overflow:hidden for ul.neHS li.neHS in the css but then i get JavaScript error.

The problem is i need to nest the slider into a table...
Any advices or suggestions? I really would like to use this extension when it will work with IE.

Another Demo5 Problem
Hi Jan,

I've been using the article teaser 1 for some time and I love it. Now I wanted to try the demo5, however, the css overrides aren't working? Specifically demo5right isn't showing up as a white box and the text alignment is off. Inspection of element shows that it is not pulling the demo5 class at all, even though it is specified in the module parameters...any suggestions?

Any idea of what is going wrong?

Error in IE
Hi Jan,

first of all Thanks a lot even from me for this great extension!!!
I installed your extension in Joomla 1.5 and it worked out very well, there are only two things...

1. The colours of handles doesnt work. I can change whatever I want but, inset the right colors but handles remain white. Do you have any idea for this?

2. the far more important problem is that viewing the site with IE the handles show me an error.

For a better idea how the problem looks like, see the site:

Banners & Fluid Width Templates Follow up
If in the module parameters, “force collapse” = No, then the slides which fit on the page remain. The accordion spacing re-adjusts too wide, though, so I am always losing my last slide. I only have 3 up, so I cannot tell if coverage will improve with adding more slides. But you mention issues with fluid layouts resizing the HorizonSlim widths - Rifky had this same issue I think? Is there anything I can do?

Thank you!

Hello, I have succesfully gotten Horizon Slim configured and perfect - very nice job on this extension, by the way - but now I want to use a fluid width template and the Horizin Slim does not function properly.

Incompatibility with IE7
Hi Jan
I'm using your awesome extension Horizon Slim but I'm having a little problem with IE7, I'm testing a page and it doesn't show any of the slides, just a black box. I've tried by disabling the other modules if it would be a bug between modules and everything stays the same. It is possible to fix this or it is better to quit and redesign the web in other way?

Divs Links and Stuck Slider
Hi Jan,
Love your module. I have had success using it with just images and descriptions, and read this helpful forum to solve the JoomFish and other issues already, and it looks great! But when I rewrite the code with divs, it displays a portion of each of my 4 slides side by side and doesn't move, like it is stuck. I confess, I do not know how to code, though, and i would also like to add links in my divs. Here is what I am trying:

I don't know how to write code for a link, but even with this to load properly and slide.

My website is, but it is not published right now. If you need to see the page, let me know! Thanks!

Articles not displaying
I installed the extension and pointed it to the article section I had set up specifically for it. Whilst it picks up that there are articles there (the "bar" menu headings show up with the names) there are 2 major problems.
1. NO article text appears at all. It's not a color thing - I've used it straight out of the box, and altered colors. I use JCE in Joomla for my articles (which do display when used normally).
2. Only menu "bar" #1 shows (at the left in my case). #s 2 and 3 appear briefly when the extension first loads but then slide off to the right and disappear off the page.

Looks a great extension but I really need these 2 things sorted for it to be usable.

Re: none {p} tags not rendering...
Well, I managed to fix this by changing the code in the helper.php to look for {h1} rather than {p}. It works but I cannot mix tags still. Its a workaround for now!

However, although my implementation looks great on safari, firefox and chrome, I'm having some issues with speed that the slides play. That's both the sliding and transition (fade) effect on IE 8. It is so much slower than the other browsers.

I don't mind hacking the code but can you describe to me if it's possible to "tune" the speed and where in the code I should be looking? (I'm not a php or js expert!)

Thanks Jan.

Any ideas?


100 Sunday, 25 July 2010 23:13
Hi Vlad,

i am not really sure what the problem is you encounter.
One guess would be: Did you enter a valid value for the "start slide" parameter of my module. It should be a Value between 1 and the number of Slides you use or "null" if you do not want any slide to be active.

I would be great if you could send me a link where i could take a look at the problem.
If that is not possible you could send me a saved version of the page in question.

Also the exact error message could help me to figure out your problem.
greetings Jan
99 Friday, 23 July 2010 14:00
Hi Philippe,

I think your problem can be solved by adding z-index css values to the main container of my module and the container holding your menu. The z-index Value for the menu should be grater than the value for my Module. Then it should work fine.

Hi mwprojects, the feature you are asking for would require a decent ammount of modification on my Javascript portion of "Horizon Slim". I am pretty buissy right now and it is a new feature i will considere it for some future update of my module but it will take some time because i have a lot of more important stuff to update first. However it should be possible to create such an effect by setting my module to "always show description" and integrationg some javascript which shows the content of the Slide when the parent li tag of my module has reached the given Slide width from my module parameters. This will require some scripting but should not be to hard to do. greetings Jan

97 Friday, 23 July 2010 13:49
Hi Martin,

i think there is a problem with my javascript and li tags in the content.
I had the same Issue with my "Presentation Slider Slim" Module where i already fixed the problem.
I am pretty buissy at the moment so it will take me some time to make a new update for "Horizon Slim" - I think i will release a new version in early August where this problem is fixed.

Hi Rifky,

i am glad you like my module so much :)
The problem you describe seems to happen when you use a liquid layout and use my module in the liquid column of the Layout.
It normally only happens when there is some html element that in the dom structure comes behind my module and changes the width my module may occupy for some reason.
I would like to take a look at your specific case. Is it possible for you to send me an url where i can take a look or maybeyou could send me safed version of the site containing the problem.

maybe i will be able to help.

greetings Jan
85 Tuesday, 13 July 2010 11:36
Hi Chris,

you can replace the following line in the /your/joomla_installation_path/modules/horizonSlim/horizonSli.xml file:

<param name="article_id" type="sql" default="" label="LABEL ARTICLE_ID" description="DESC ARTICLE_ID" query="SELECT id, alias FROM #__content" key_field="id" value_field="alias" />

with this one

<param name="article_id" type="text" default="0" label="LABEL ARTICLE_ID" description="DESC ARTICLE_ID" />

This will allow you to insert the article Id in a textfield.
Hope that helps

Last Slide doesn't show up
Hi Jan,
First of ALL, i don't actually like your extension, I LOVE IT!
best simple exptension for Joomla IMHO.
But I am having slight problem, the same as Valerio had.
The HorizonSlim I used doesnt properly shows the last slide, only shows when I define total width in the advanced parameter, but in doing so, the banner doesn't look nice in browsers with different width (i.e.widescreen).

Is there anyway so that the last slide can be shown properly?

Article ID not showing up.
Hi there, I am forced to use Joomla 1.5.0 and I am using the Horizon Slim module, the problem is the Article ID is not displaying the names of the article. Is there any way to fix this problem? I am forced to use the old version of Joomla since it is the latest version that will work on my client's web host and not give me a 500 error. I can't upgrade to a newer version because of the issues with the web host, they are running PHP/MySQL 5. I know that the issue came up before, but I have set up a section and category for the slide show article.

Any advice will be helpful. Thanks in advance.

Hi Dosboy,

at the moment i think it is not possible to use "Horizon Slim" with Jumi because my module does not execute content plugins.
When i wrote "Horizon Slim" i did not have in mind to include this functionality.
I will try to implement this but it will take some time.

greetings Jan

Hi Zak,

i am not sure if i am really getting your problem.

Jumi (Embedded PHP)
I've been trying to use Horizon Slim in combination with Jumi, which allows you to drop PHP right into your articles. This way I'd be able to dynamically generate the content for Horizon Slim. However, the two don't seem to get along at all. It seems as though Horizon Slim just clobbers any {jumi}...{/jumi} tags in the article or doesn't allow them to be processed in some way. Any idea if what I'm attempting is possible?

I do not think you have the same problem as Lucy because she had the Problem that her Server did not support dom and without php Dom Support my module will not work at all.
What you descripe seems to be a Joomfish problem. at first I would suggest that you enabled the Joomfish System Plugin which i think is essential for joomfish to work at all.

I know that you can encounter problems if you have Articles for wich there is no translation because Joomfish will put a warning message at the top of those Articles - but i think you can turn that off somewhere in the Joomfish settings. I already implemented a function to remove the joomfish error messages inside Horizon Slim and this will be included in the next update.

Blank Page when module is activated - 2
One more element I've just found.
When I unpublish the following joomfish plugin: "System - Jfdatabase" my site is back again, with Horizon Slim working, but no access to any joomfish functionnalities... I have a wraning : "Joomfish System Plugin not enabled" on the language selector module position!

Fresh install
PHP 5.2.8
MySQL 4.1.22
Joomla 1.5.18
Joomfish 2.0.4

Thanks for your help :)

Blank Page when module is activated
Hello Jan

I've got the same problem as Lucy.
It seems, in my case, that there is a conflict between Joomfish and Horizon Slim.
It happens on a brand new site, blank or with default contents.
When I activate Horizon Slim I get only a blank screen. If I uninstall Joomfish, I see my site back again. Or if I unpublish the horizon module it's ok again.
Do you have any idea please ?

Hi Scott,

I know of that problem - and will be fixed soon - sorry for the inconvinience.

To get it running just add an non empty alt tag to every Image like alt="my description text" and it should work fine.

Frozen like johnlewisdesign
Hi Jan,

Reading through the issues, I think I have a similar issue to johnlewisdesign. On both IE and firefox, it throws an error: t.parentNode is undefined
http:///modules/mod_horizon/js/horizon.slim.0.2.js line 16

seems like it send one every time it tries to go to the next slide. System is:
PHP 5.3.2
Web Server: Apache/2.2.15 (Fedora)
Joomla: 1.5.15 stable
browser: Mozilla/5.0

For the example, I took your demo 1 exactly and even used your slides.

Thanks for any help,

73 Thursday, 08 July 2010 00:23
Hi Lucy,

thats an odd problem. I never got feedback from John so i do not know what caused the problem for him.
Do your two Sites run on different Servers or on the same ?

Could you please check your error logs for some hint what went wrong.

On a System with PHP 5+ i do not know how my module could cause a blank page without any error message.

greetings Jan

Blank Page when module is activated
Hi Jan,

Firstly I'd like to say thank you for a great module. It works a treat on one of my sites.

My problem is similar to John's where when I activate it on one of my other sites it produces a blank page. I've checked that the settings and parameters I have used for both sites and they are the same so I don't know why it's working on one site and not the other.

The problem site
PHP Built on: Linux
PHP Version: 5.1.6
Web server: apache2.2.3
Joomla! Version: Joomla!1.5.15 Stable

I hope you can help, thanks :)

Hi Hans,

when you copied the Article did you turn of your wysiwmyg Editor or used the sourcecode option as stated in my Documentation page ?

If you did so and it is not working i will need some more Information to help you like:

1. What system are your working on windows/Linux/Mac local or server ?
2. What php version do you have installed.
3. Are there any error messages.

You could also try to turn on the "php debug" option under advanced in my modules module settings - the resulting output could give me some insight of the problem at hand.

i hope i will be able to help you with your problem

Demo 2 Bannerslide
Hi Jan,

What a great module;) thnx for that,

My question is, i've installed it already, but i can't see a slide on my page..

Is there something i can do? I've copied the html code in an article, nd set the parameters to the same article, without any results..

69 Tuesday, 06 July 2010 15:48
add this to your .htacces file in the main directory of ur ftp,

AddHandler x-httpd-php5 .php

put this at the end of the file, and it will allow you to use php5

68 Tuesday, 06 July 2010 15:44

Hi Jake, adding links to the Slides works exactly the same way for demo 2 as they are applied in demo 3 and 4

just add a link like:

<a href="/negetics-Horizon-Slim/horizon-slim-demo-gallery-slideshow.html">link title text</a>

somewhere in the main div of the Slide

greetings Jan,

67 Tuesday, 06 July 2010 15:15
Hi Jan

I had to change to Demo 2 as the powers that be liked the look of it beter, is there any way i can make the slides into links aswell?
66 Tuesday, 06 July 2010 15:07
Hi Jake,

it seems you have changed the demo since you made your comment. It looks more like Demo 2 now.
But I can imagine what your problem was - when you want an effekt like in demo 4 it is best to have a setup where the total width my module may occupy is a multiple of the width the single Slides. In my example the total width is 980px and the Single Slides have a width of 196px times 5 this makes exactly my 980px.
In your case the total width is 988 say you use 6 Slides that would make 164.66 which is not optimal but you could try to set the width for the expanded Slide to 165 in my modules parameters. I think this will make the Single Slides to jump a little when they get active but it should work.

When you put the demo back to what it was i can take a closer look at your problem.

greetings Jan

Thanks again for a totally wonderful module

Hi Henk,

is it possible that your online host runs php 4.x ?

This would be the only explanation i could think of for this to happen.
My module needs php 5.x to function and since php 4 is no longer supported as of August 2008 i would strongly recommend to update to php 5.x for security's sake.

online problems
Hi Jan,
After working fine on localhost I try to bring the site online. The site won't load. This is the error message I get:
Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION or T_FUNCTION or T_VAR or '}' in /var/www/vhosts/ on line 10

Do you know how I can fix that? Hope so.

Hi subrealms,

what version of IE are you using.
The speed difference is because i made it so. I have IE 5.5 6 and 7 parallel installed and on my client pc the firefox version was always much faster than the IE or Opera or Safari so i slowed the script down on firefox. So it is pretty much possible that on a fast pc the other browsers work with the proper speed they should wich they do not on an pc with 2.8 ghz.

So it would be interesting on what frequence your pc is running :)

I will try to fix this in the next update and make it optional to slow mozilla down or something like that.

greetings Jan

Speed difference between browsers.
Hi. your extension is awesome yet I'm having an annoying problem. Slides always play slower in firefox than they do in Chrome or IE which play at equally high speeds.

Modifying the "Slide Speed" parameter changes the speed in all browsers but it's always relatively slower in firefox (or too fast in other browsers if you want to call it that way). The difference is too great to ignore frame rate is pretty much halved. Any opinions?

Slim freezes on Firefox. Problem solved!
Hi Jan. I interpretted your question/remark wrong! I replaced the "0" (zero)for "null" (the word) and kaboem: Horizon Slim works on Firefox too! Thanks for your reactions.

Hi Henk,
i am not at home at the moment so i cant get to my emails but from the error message, plese check if you have entered a valid entry in the "start slide" field in the setup. It hase to be a value > 0 or 'null' if you do not want any slide to be active. I will check your eMail on sunday.

Slim freezes on Firefox
Ok Jan, 1. Your demo works fine on Firefox. 2. The website is on localhost so I've sent the sourcecode as an attachment to your email adress. 3. This error message shows on Firefox:
Fout: uncaught exception: [Exception... "Index or size is negative or greater than the allowed amount" code: "1" nsresult: "0x80530001 (NS_ERROR_DOM_INDEX_SIZE_ERR)" location: "http://localhost/achzoja//modules/mod_horizonSlim/js/horizon.beta.0.1.js Line: 6"].
I hope this will do.
56 Saturday, 26 June 2010 10:48
Hi Henk,

i am glad you apreciate my module :)
To help you it would be good to know.
1. Do my demos work in your firefox ?
2. could you send me a link to your page so i can take a look at the problem?
if that is not possible you could just send me the sourcecode of the the site where "Horizon Slim" does not work proper.
3. if you get any javascript error messages those would be of interest too.
To get the javascript console in firefox press str+shft+j

I hope i can help you with your broblem.

Slides freezes in Firefox
Hi Jan,
Congrats with the succes of your extentions. Rightly so! I love them! I buy you a hamburger, ok?
The Horizon Slim ads much dynamic to my website. But in the Firefox browser (3.6.4) the first two slides shows full and dimmed.
The app is frozen. No movement. In IE8, Opera, Chrome and Safari
the slideshow works excellent. Any idea how I can it let work also in Firefox? Thanks in advance.

Hi Ryan,

it seems your server configuration has set the php error repoerting "E_ALL" wich is a very unusual setteng in a joomla environment.
Try this in the file "mod_horizonSlim.php"

insert after this line:

defined('_JEXEC') or die('Direct Access to this location is not allowed.');

this line:

error_reporting(E_ALL ^ E_NOTICE);

this should turn off the E_NOTICE warnings.

I hope this helps you.

Hi Rana,

looks like there is some eeror with the Article sourcecode you use to generate the Slides.
Make sure you edit the used Article without a WYSIWYMG editor.
I can See from the error message that my module was not able to find an image within the div's.
If you send me the source code of the Article you use i can take a look at the problem.

I hope i will be able to help you with your problem.

JS control
This is a great module! I have a quick question I was hoping you could help me with. When you set up two photos for the same slide area, where in the JS script can you control the speed it goes from the first slide to the second? I'd like to slow it down, but I don't speak javascript. I'm using horizon.beta.0.1.1.js

Thanks for your great module. I'm gonna buy you a coffee.

demo 2 problem
Jan, you have an amazing module here, I love it.

Thank you for all the support you have been providing, I have been able to answer a lot of questions just by reading over this page.

However, I have a problem when I try to reproduce the demo 2: specifically, the first opens automatically and when I move to another pic, the description from the first does not go away. All the other pics and descriptions move and are color overlayed correctly except for the first one. In fact, it seems as if the first div is not following the custom css override at all.

All other settings are exactly the same (to my knowledge).

Any suggestions?

45 Tuesday, 15 June 2010 03:07
Ahmed Mujovic
Hi Tom,

i have to apologize for the inconvenience with the css override.
I updated the stylesheet of my module with the last update so that the css won't break so easy anymore.
So the css overrides have changed but i did not have the time to correct the demos yet.

the override for demo 4 should work like that now:

ul.physicists li.neHS div.neHSc div.neHSf {
background:#b84212; opacity: 0.8;
ul.physicists li.neHS div.neHSc div.neHSb div.neHSbb {

I hope that solves the problem otherwise just contact me again.

demo 4 css override
Hi, I love the demo 4 configuration. I've been trying for hours to get the colored opacity with your css override, but I can't figure out where to paste the override code into or if I'm doing it correctly.

I added "physicists" to the module class and the provided code into "templates/rt_dominion_j15/html/mod_horizonSlim/default.php"
but no matter where I put it, the override doesn't take effect and I have everything configured the same as the demo 4 settings.

Thank you!

Hi johnlewisdesign,

could you please give me some specifics about the error you encounter like what browser did you use - very good would be the source code of the site you encountert the error.

I know about a problem with the Internet Explorer that could lead to such an error message. But this only happens in sites with a broken dom structure and IE.

If you send me some more information i will look into your problem.

Hi hafedh,

i just tested my module with Joomfish and it will work fine as long you have translations for the Articles used with horizon or you have the fallback activated for Articles without translations.
If you do not have a translation for an "Horizon Slim" Article and fallback is not defined Joomfish adds a message Div at the front of the Article and that causes an error with my module.

So just try to activate the fallback - you can find this setting under components > Joom!Fish > Language Manager.

I will build in a Joomfish check to prevent this error in the next update of my module.

Hope I could help you.

First of all thanks for the great job,

I've installed the module, it works perfect in the french version, when i tried to move to the english version -using joomfish 2.0.4- the following error appears :

Fatal error: Call to a member function getAttribute() on a non-object in C:\Program Files\wamp\www\virtuemart\modules\mod_horizonSlim\helper.php on line 333

I saw the same error from Adam, but i think no solution yet?

Hello Valerio,

i figured out the problem.
You have a huge table in your Layout. The horizon script is called while the table is still being set up by the browser so I get a 0 value in an offsetWidth check for my ul wich causes the error.

I send you a version of Horizon Slim with a fix for that.
Try to install the "Horizon Slim" package i attached to the email.
This should fix your problem.

Problem with IE
Hello Jan,
thanks for your answer. I see that i have the error "x is null" in the horizon.slim.0.2.js at row 16. Maybe this is not a major issue in most of browsers but it is in IE. Probably i have some conflict with another js but i am not such an expert with java..
Any suggestion about how to solve this?

35 Friday, 04 June 2010 13:09
Hello Tom,

i am happy you like my little module.
To solve your problem there are two possibilities:
I guess you are using a version of "Horizon Slim" s if you use a Version ollowing style:
#ja-topsl .negeticsHorizon li (
padding: 0;

I hope this fixes your problem.

greetings Jan
34 Friday, 04 June 2010 11:38
Hello Valerio,

to solve the problem with the Slides not showing try to add a Total Width in the Settings of my module you find this setting under:
advanced parameters > Total Width
I think in your case something about 740 should be ok

That should solve the Issue of the not shown slides.
The problem with the IE seems to be some kind of broken script inside your side - so i can't help you with that sorry.

First, the extension is great and with the future...
I have the same problem as Mathieu Braekeveld and in accordance with the suggestion put . NegeticsHorizon li (padding: 0;) to template.css but the problem still is, something like Firebug shows:

#ja-topsl li;, # ja-botsl li (
background-image: url ("../ images/bullet2.gif ");
background-position: 1px 8px;
padding-left: 10px;
template.css (line 1218)
#ja-topsl li, # ja-botsl li. NegeticsHorizon li (
padding-left: 0;
What am I doing wrong? I add that I have to stay with the #ja-topsl li, # ja-botsl li (line 1236) it to me makes all the lists. When I delete this everything is fine.

RE: Warning: DOMDocument....
If you encounter an error like:
Warning: DOMDocument::loadHTML() [domdocument.loadhtml]: htmlParseEntityRef: expecting ';' in Entity....
This usually means that you use url's containing one or more & (Ampersands).
You need to replace them with the proper html-entity &amp; and all will work fine.

I will try to fix this problem in one of the next updates but i am not sure how to fix this right now but i will find some way ;)

When you create a link in the article you must use the following format:

The warning message only shows up when i have links in the module. I saw your suggestion about charset and tidy, but i don't understand where that is accessed. Can you be more clear about the navigation to those settings?

Site with error message here.

Otherwise great module. Donation coming soon.
20 Tuesday, 01 June 2010 17:09
Hi tgouh,

what charset does your site use ?
try entering the correct charset in the module settings under:

Advanced Parameters > HTML Charset

and turn the tidy support off:
Advanced Parameters > Tidy support: no

if that does not help please send me the contents of the article you use as Data for "Horizon Slim" and if possible a link to your test site so I can take a look.

@Mathieu Braekeveld
Hi Mathieu,

I know about the list bullet problem, this happens when in an existing stylesheets the padding for li elements is clobally set.

you have to add the following line somewhere in your stylesheet and it will be fine:

.negeticsHorizon li {padding:0;}

For the containerFirst thing - I also know about that. It is something I forgot to fix with the last update. And the reason that it doesnt apear on my site that way is because here I already use a newer version.

Ther is a delay with the next update because I added some image resizing capabilities - which I have to remove again before I release the next update. Otherwise I would get kicked from the JED for using a php script licensed under MIT-License.

But I will release the next update within the next 12 hours. Wich will fix a Javascript bug. The list css issues and the containerFirst problem.

So check back and look for the update.

Hi Robert,

i haven't tried my module under a php4 environment yet so it is possible that it doesn't works there. I am not using any fancy php5 only function in my Module though.

If anybody has "Horizon Slim" running under php4 please contact me.
If you send me an URL I willtake a look at the problem.

I haven't tried my Module with other Charsets besides utf8 because I personally prefer this charset over all athers because it works with every Language.
If you need to use Latin2 as charset you can try to replace all special chars with the proper Html entities then it shoul be fine with horizon Slim.

I am working on a new Version of horizon Slim with included php-tidy support to cleanup the provided sourceCode that could also take care of your problem but for that to happen you will have to wait a few days.

Unordered list bullet displayed?

My website with the banner:

I'm looking for hours now but can't find out why there is always a bullet displyed on the left of my images. Also not all my images are displayed (but this i think is because the bullets are shown).

My article containts only images as you can see (i did'n use an WYSIWYG-editor so this is the source code):

What i find very strange is that when i look at the generated html all images are stored in a seperate and the div's always have the name "container first". When i look at other pages with examples this is not the case...

Can anyone help me please?

You need to set the Height in the settings!
Basic Parameters -> total height: 200 or whatever your desired height is.

Code generated by not appearing
The code appears to be generated but nothing's appearing in the module position. Is there something I need to do to my template to make it appear?

It's installed here:

I took a lok at your site. This happens because of your stylesheet settings for unordered Lists.
Try adding the following code to your stylesheet:

#content ul.negeticsHorizon {

That shoud fix the Problem.

Module off-center in Firefox
Loving this module, perfect for my client's site.

I'm having a problem in Firefox where the module sits off-center to the right, actually going outside the main body. Any ideas why this is happening?

See site here.

Hi Patrick,
thanks for your suggestion.
I added a form to submit sites using "Horizon Slim" and will put the submissions on my site soon ;)

More Live Sites Using Horizon Slim

Just a quick suggestion. Could you add a section for users to post links to Horizon Slim in use on other sites? If I understand Horizon Slim correctly, the possibilities are impressive, and it would be easier to demonstrate that potential with more examples.

Thanks for posting the solution of the "No Article Id" problem. I wrote this in an E-mail to sanjay but forgot to put it in the questions Area. Hope you like my little module. A new Version is on the way I rewrote the complete php portion so it is good oop code and easier to maintain and customize. Will add the possibility to parse div's instead of paragraphs inside the main div's so there will be more flexibility in the custom HTML code. Cheers Jan

No coude output - solved
The article used in the module needs to be in a section and category to work. Don't put the article in 'uncategorized'.

I have the same problem. No HTML code output in source visible.

Installed and activated but no results. I could not see article id in the admin area. Very small drop down list not showing anything.
