Select styling being ignored
# March 12, 2013 at 9:51 am
I am in the process of making one of my older websites responsive.
If you follow this link: http://www.leedsrag.org.uk/?theme=RAG2013 and reduce the browser width down to mobile size you will see the dropdown menu appear. Whatever CSS I apply to it seems to be ignored – in Webkit browsers at least.
On iOS it seems to have a green to white gradient background as well?
Any ideas?# March 12, 2013 at 10:10 am
It looks like it’s working for me (Chrome for Windows). The only styling I see applied is style.css line 1078 which only sets the font, font size and min-height and only when the screen width is < 480px. You mentioned “in Webkit browsers at least”… does that you are seeing the green to white gradient background in both Chrome and Safari? Or maybe you have an extension/addon that is interfering?# March 12, 2013 at 10:32 am

I have applied Gill Sans as a font which it seems to be ignoring as well as a height. Any font size larger than 18px is also ignored. If it was an extension interfering, surely wouldn’t that show up in Chrome inspector?# March 12, 2013 at 11:52 am
Hmm, well I can change the font, size and height from the developer tools window. I set the font size to `40px` and ended up needing to add a `max-width:100%` to the select. But everything seems to work for me.
And yes, you’d think it would show up in the inspector =/# March 12, 2013 at 1:25 pm
@jshjohnson: ah sorry, I posted while eating and had a brain fart.
All I can give for now is that I can also confirm everything to work just fine on various browsers. I guess the only glitch I can see is how Firefox doesn’t allow line-height for the select element and thus Home text is always at top of the box.
