This is probably not directly a J! problem so if you vote for closing, I'll remove the question.

Joomla 3.3.6 Offline page – there is a login form displayed, but it is not editable, although its HTML looks fine. Even cursor remains in arrow shape over input boxes, it is not changed into I. Nothing can be typed into text boxes and blue button doesn't respond. I thought it is a browser issue but I can see the same in multiple browsers.


enter image description here


Found the issue. It's being caused by the overlapping background being applied to the parent element:

.rt-footer-surround-pattern:before {
    background: url("../images/patterns/noise.png") repeat;
    content: "";
    height: 100%;
    position: absolute;
    width: 100%;

Update with solution:

Add the following CSS:

#rt-subscription-form {
    background: #12374d url("../images/patterns/noise.png") repeat;
#rt-authorized-form {
    background: #35363a url("../images/patterns/noise.png") repeat;

and remove the CSS code I showed that was causing the problem at the top of my question.

Hope this helps

  • @miroxlav - See my update. I can fix it by removing the background but am trying to fix it so that you get to keep this background overlay – Lodder Oct 30 '14 at 0:06
  • @miroxlav - Updated my answer again with a working solution ;) – Lodder Oct 30 '14 at 0:16
  • wow. thanks. Now I understand the overlapping layer issue. I can't understand very well that such an easy-to-spot bug leaked into a commercial template. – miroxlav Oct 30 '14 at 0:19
  • True, quite surprising they didn't notice it. If you still have your subscription on Rockettheme, I would highly suggest telling them just in case it's an issue with other templates ;) – Lodder Oct 30 '14 at 0:21
  • Finally this problem was addressed by template upgrade which I did not notice. My bad. Sorry for keeping you busy. See the second answer for solution. – miroxlav Oct 30 '14 at 3:20

Template upgrade helped
without need of manually changing any code:

After some research I found the problem was named in template change log. You can see it in the change log for version 1.2 (scroll down the page). Then reset of Gantry cache needs to be performed and problem gets corrected.
