    Hi!

    I get this error every so often, and just about
    then the N Scale list gets very slow to scroll:

    Warning: Expected color but found '#'. Error in parsing value for property 'background'. Declaration dropped.
    Source File: http://www.trainboard.com/grapevine/forumdisplay.php?f=170
    Line: 260


    indeed, there is an error at that line:

    .vbmenu_option a:link, .vbmenu_option_alink
    {
    background: #;
    color: #CCCCCC;
    text-decoration: none;

    Any ideas?

    No, I've never see that either. That would be a question for the VB developers because that is their standard CSS. I can try to check...

    It's not a VB error.. it's a style/css error. The style definition is definately there, I just did view source and I see it:

    Code:
    .vbmenu_option a:link, .vbmenu_option_alink
    {
    	[B]background: #;  <== invalid [/B]
    	color: #CCCCCC;
    	text-decoration: none;
    }
    background definition is invalid, but for some reason your browser is telling you about the error. I'm using firefox as I write this, and I don't see the error in a message dialog, BUT it's in the Error console: menu: Tools/Error console.

    The forum code has templates for the site correct? My guess is that somewhere that variable for background is bad, missing, or incorrect..

    If it were me, that's where I'd start looking :)

    I can't find the problem on the other end. The standard CSS is part of VB and I can't see that on the other side.

    btw: if you go to http://www.vbulletin.org/forum and use their forums, you'll see the same error all over the place ;)

    they've apparently done most of their testing with IE, since their css is sloppy. LOL
