Colin, first allow me to apologize for my previous post. I was frustrated and should not have posted it. I am prepping my site for the 3.x upgrade and was researching a bunch of my components to make sure I was good to go with compatibility. Upon reading the site and seeing that this version was the one to use if you were starting a site today, I installed it. Needless to say, I was expecting one thing and that was unrealistic. I appreciate all of the hard work that is put into this and every other component that I use.
In the previous version, my buttons displayed perfectly, which is why I reported it as a bug. While I am very techy, I do not know much about the inner workings of Joomla, et al. I have learned by trial and error.
For PHP, i just updated to 5.6.2 to be in compliance with corporate security. I don't know where to find the version of CSS. I am using the JSN EpicPro template which I have been using since the day the site went live.
I will PM you information
