-no more details sorry. If I only could expand the text -under mobile screens- to something say 10-15 chars...
Perhaps an "on hover" for the buttons would be better so as to avoid too wide buttons. (or, not sure if it's feasible: alternative text for mobile).
Spelling is freeware, which means you can use it for free.
On the other hand, it is not open source, which means you cannot change it or publish it in a modified form.

There is an 'On Hover' in the extension already

nice extension, only minus :
text of links is too restrictive under mobile browsers , truncated to 7-8 chars under a "links" button.

I m running a forum and the most of users don't know the shit about technology
-no more details sorry. If I only could expand the text -under mobile screens- to something say 10-15 chars...

thx
To change the width of the buttons on Mobile devices, download and unzip the attached and upload it to the prosilver directory of this extension overwriting the two existing files, then purge your BROWSERS cache.

To change the button width:-

OPEN

headerlink_responsive.css and headerlink_header.css

FIND

Code: Select all

		max-width:200px;
CHANGE 200 to the required width

SAVE> UPLOAD> PURGE BROWSER CACHE

Its the way I have coded the files so that the buttons didn't take up al of the smaller devices screen space.

You could of course totally remove the 'Links' link and leave all of the buttons displayed no matter what size screen, but with a lot of buttons that could become very annoying to the user.

Implementing an idea before I even thought of it. I wish I could do that ;)

what about having the links pop into a quick links dropdown for mobile? that way it won't matter how long they are.
