Anyone having that issue where the latest version of the android market 3.1.3 will force close within a minute or so of opening it?

Here is the fix.. it’s holding for now.

  1. Settings
  2. Language and Keyboard
  3. Language
  4. pick your language (even if its already selected.. just re-select it – or switch between English Canada and English US)
That fixed it for me!

Fix WordPress Shailan Dropdown Menu Widget for IE

You might have noticed that the Shailan Dropdown Menu Widget does not display the dropdown menus properly in older versions of Internet Explorer. The dropdowns actually show behind the other content on the page.

Here is how you can fix it.

Start By Using the Blue Gradient Theme/Skin

To start we recommend trying the fix with the Blue Gradient theme/skin for the menu – once you see how it works here you can easily fix it wherever you need. To select this skin, go to the Drop Down Menu section (under Settings) in your admin panel. Select the Blue Gradient Skin at the top, and click Save changes.

Now you have to modify that skin’s css file

Use your favorite ftp tool (fileZilla, coda, cPanel for hosting, fetch, ssh + vi, etc) to go the plugin’s directory on your server/hosting. The location will be your_domain/your_wordpress_install/wp-content/plugins/dropdown-menu-widget/themes.
Now edit the simple-blue.css file.
You just need to change one line (about the 8th line of the file):
    • Change the line from this:
  • ul.dropdown{ padding:0px 0px 0px 20px;}
    • To this:
  • ul.dropdown{ padding:0px 0px 0px 20px; z-index: 9999;}
(you’ve just added the text “z-index: 9999;”)
Save your file. (Make sure you are saving back to the server/hosting)
That’s it!
If you are using a different skin than Blue Gradient, you will just have to make this change the your skin’s corresponding css file. Blue gradient uses simple-blue.css, you can easily figure out what the others use.

Honda Civic Gauge Lights and Tail Lights not Working | Fix it Guide

This guide explains how to fix your tail lights and gauge lights on your Honda Civic in the event that they have somehow stopped working – usually as a result of a short during the installation of a new stereo head unit. This was done on a 2001 Civic, it will likely work the same on all 2001 to 2005 civics and probably be very similar on older a newer models as well. All instructions are taken at your own risk, be careful – you might want to disconnect the battery while replacing fuses. That said, the is an extremely easy fix that anyone can do themselves, we do not advise you to take your car in for service – that would be a complete waste of money.

It is likely that you are experiencing all of the following problems:

  • Gauge lights behind speedometer and other gauges not working
  • Tail lights not working
  • Main ceiling light does not come on when you open the doors (even in ‘door’ mode)
  • Car does not beep when you leave the headlights on and remove the key
  • Car does not beep when you leave the key in and open the driver door
  • Power locks to not work unless the ignition is turned
  • No constant power to the stereo head unit – the stereo will not store its presets and will not remember the time

The Solution

This problem is very easy to fix – You simply have to replace two fuses in the fuse box under the hood, both of which can be replaced with spare fuses already in your car (so no need to buy anything new.)

The 2 fuses are very poorly named, you would probably never even think to check them to correct the problem at hand. They are the 15A FI ECU Fuse – No. 2 in the chart below, and the 10A Back Up Fuse – No. 9 in the chart below. As you pop them out, have a look at them – you should see that the metal that runs through the plastic is broken (this indicated that the fuse is blown.)

As the chart shows, fuses in slots 21 to 25 are all spares – you will be able to find the 2 replacement fuses you need here (you will have to replace them with fuses of the same amperage, 15A for the FI ECU and 10A for the Back Up.

We would recommend having a look at your Accessory, Radio fuse as well – this fuse is in the fuse box under the steering wheel – post a comment if you would like to see a diagram of this fuse panel and we will put one up.

That’s it! You should be back in business. Let us know if you have any questions.
