Popup working, but very oddly - pops to vertical center of long page

Hi;

I'm building a website located here: http://beltconceal.com. I have what appear to be working buttons, and the popup pops onto the page, but the shopping cart window is appearing in the vertical center of the entire web page, not the center of the browser window.

This results in the page appearing as if it has turned dark, until one scrolls up or down to finally find the shopping cart.

HELP?

Also (though not terribly much an issue on a single-item website,) additional clicks of "add to cart" do not appear to add additional items.

Thanks in advance for helping me understand what is going on here.

Dex

That seems to be an issue of your site's CSS which we won't be able to diagnose :(

That's how E-junkie cart works, clicking the "add to cart" on the same item does not increase the quantity. To increase the quantity, you specifically need to change the quantity in the cart.

Hi Dex, did you fix this? I have the exact same issue.

Hi Brandon:

No, I didn't get anywhere with fixing it. What host is your site on? There ought to be a list of e-junkie-hostile web hosts that do odd things with it. Mine was on MS's officelive.com

By default on officelive, it seems that the CSS structure will let you put the module pretty much anywhere you want - but it will either pop the pop up to the middle of the vertical page, or it will pop it into a module frame - but which only displays as much of the cart as you've sized the frame for (which can be a single word in size)

The only workaround that I was able to come up with on officelive.com was to place the module into which I'd put the cart code at the bottom of the screen, size the module to fit around the cart and let the cart appear in a section that otherwise looked blank (because obviously anywhere else on the page except the bottom looks silly with a blank spot.)

You can see an example here http://mygunpurses.com/7036.aspx. It's a little kuldgey, but it works. Note that we also have a stupid "shopping cart" page in the tabs at the top, which takes one to a page with nothing on it but the "view cart button.

I'd have been relatively happy if someone could have told me how to just make the cart appear when that "shopping cart" page was loaded without pressing the button - but I didn't get any traction there either.

Nonetheless the site is making sales, so I guess customers don't find this arrangement too inexplicable.

Hi Dex,

I figure it must be a CSS issue with a Joomla template I am using. So I opted to go ahead and make my HTML page from scratch outside of the template and outside of Joomla...

Works greatly now!

Your product looks great!

But what in the CSS would cause the cart to pop up vertically centered? If someone can point me in the right direction I'm sure I can find it.
