Cursor

Hi
I've noticed that -in the thumbs page -the cursor is the 'right' finger pointer on the first thumbs. Then when scrolling down it suddenly changes to the standard windows arrow for the last thumbs.
Also in lightbox only that arrow shows.
I find this confusing.. Great if you guys had a look at it.

Thanks

Confirmed, and I can see why it's happening, though I can fix it only by doing a CSS hack. Better that Laza fix it in the skin code.

In short, the initial thumbnails are all coded like this:
<a class="thumb" href data-name="The title" data-href="slide/img01.jpg" etc.
The lower thumbnails, however, are coded like this:
<a class="thumb" data-name="The title" data-href="slide/img01.jpg" etc.
The href attribute isn't actually needed, but it does tell the browser to use the "fiinger" cursor instead of the "arrow" cursor.

BTW, the kludge to force the issue is to head for Photoblogger > Advanced > Custom code > CSS and enter:
.thumb {cursor: pointer;}

This is a little different. I would prefer to see a cursor change when mouse-hovering on the "next" arrow, but strictly speaking, you're not navigating to a new page when you click on that arrow, so the "pointer" cursor isn't required.

ETA: The CSS kludge is similar:
.lightbox-btn {cursor: pointer;}

This is technically true for the thumbnails, as well! You're never leaving the index.html page, so the "pointer" cursor is not strictly required. But yes, I'd want to see it in both places.

First -Thanks! for the CSS fix. It did the trick.

I see your point about not leaving the index page -BUT as long as half of the thumbs show a different courser then the rest... -visitors might think 'hey -all your thumbs are not working!'...
Confusing and not good. So I'm glad you agree after all :-)

A ?: If / when Laza fix this -will I have to remove any CSS codes (yours) I put in ??

I will fix this ASAP. It's odd I have never noticed this before.

It won't be necessary any longer. Leaving it in there won't hurt anything, but you might as well remove it.

And it's a cursor, not a courser. If you spell it wrong, CSS will ignore it! ;)
