Do you mean that when you add CSS codes it is not saving it?

To add/change CSS you have to add it to your CSS stylesheet and press the submit button.

I can't add it or it screw up my entire page like it did before! It was all over the place before I re-installed a backup! I can't add that whole CSS since it says it too long -_-

What then do you mean by this? If you want to change something with CSS, you have to add the code (not the whole CSS, just the code that you are working on) to the blank stylesheet and press the submit button.

The css won't appear there. If you want to make changes to the default css, you will need to add the css that can over ride the default css.

My Other Thread telling me to add things to my blank CSS: http://help.forumotion.com/t121707-removing-the-qoutes-from-html-tag

Theres no changes to be made. Geez, man.

Again, that BLANK BOx showed CSS when I used PHPBB2. Now it shows nothing the moment I go to look at my CSS. I can't save it, submit or whatever it is you're trying to get me to do here. I flat out cannot edit it without it throwing my icons, images, and entire forum into disarray. Apparently, in my other thread, I have to ADD something to the CCS, which I cannot do because I don't know how to get my CSS to appear and if I add to it, that'll be the only damn thing shown!


Look at the picture! Thats what it looks like as soon as I enter the CSS Stylesheet tab. There's nothing there but a blank box with a '1' in it! I don't know why we're going around my original question, but we are and its irritating me.


I CANT add to the CSS when its blank since when I saved it before, my forum got destroyed and I luckily found my backup on my computer. I can LOOK at the basic CSS all day, but I can't do anything with it! What are you two talking about?! I can't copy and paste the basic CSS because its too long!


Am I losing my patience? Yes. This entire conversation has been avoiding what I'm saying like its unreasonable. Feel free to access the Admin Panel and check yourselves since this is ridiculous. I'm either not explaining this correctly somehow, or I'm flat-out not being heard.

Some themes from Hitskins will not have any CSS codes in the CSS stylesheet. If a theme does have some there, it just means that it is overriding the basic CSS. All forums have basic CSS.

Maybe this will help explain it better - http://help.forumotion.com/t42099-learning-the-basic-css .

Yes I just read it telling me to put the CSS into the thing

Again, its not letting me put it in due to it being 'too long' or something

I don't think you're understanding how the CSS feature works.

Say you have this CSS by default:

Code:
#wrap {
  background-color: #FFF;
}

You are thinking that is supposed to appear in the CSS box along with all your site's CSS. That's not how it works. To change the colour of the #wrap you don't have to look for it and edit it in the CSS somewhere. Just add this to the CSS:

Code:
#wrap {
  background-color: #000 !important;
}

That will overwrite what you have in the default CSS.

Well I don't imagine anyone will be willing to help you with your crap attitude.

You've asked a question that can't be answered as you don't understand how editing the CSS works on forumotion.

The reason you do not see any css there is because you do not have any for what ever skin you are using.Like said above not all skins will come with css.

and if you are trying to use a css script that is too big and will not fit, then it is probably one you do not want to use anyway. i have seen some css scripts go on forever and half of the stuff in them you don't even need, or not even working as you think it is.

i would say get a skin you like with css, then just modify and change things to your liking that way.

But if your using a script that will not fit, then there is no much you can do about that. you have to find a script that will fit and also work.

or just add what you need as you go along, know what it is you want changed and only use the css for it if you have to. a lot of things can be changed right through forum settings as far as colors and images and don't even need css for it. But it also depends on what you want to change.

So narrow down exactly what it is you want to do and take it from there.

Also click on See your forum's basic CSS at the top of the css sheet.
you can copy that and add what you want to modify it.

info added

Hey what are you using phpbb2
You know if the css is not fitting , see if it will fit on a html page.
If so you might be able to import it with style tags, added to your forums over all header template

But not sure i have never tried it, and if it did work it be take a lot of adjusting it from your html page until you get it right? i will try a couple test to see if t is even possible to do it this way, technically it should, bu that don't necessarily mean it will.. LOL

if using phpbb3 or invison still might work a couple other ways. but dunno seems like it may be more work then it is worth. plus i can all most bet that css script is not going to do all thats in it. but would have to see it and know it is compatible with what ever version you are using

There is not supposed to be CSS in that box unless you add it.

So If you haven't added any... Then quit your screaming.
Sort of like this post... It wouldn't be here unless I post it. your custom CSS won't be there unless you add it.

We've moved forums, but its the same theme and issue anyway. Sorry I've been busy trying ti get it ready.
http://blazingeternity.forumotion.com

"Have you recently added your theme? " Yes and no.

Okay so is there a way to grab a CSS of this theme? I have the long one that I cannot add in, so I'm lost on what to do now.

I think I might let this question go. We're not getting anywhere when none of this even makes sense to me. bwi

I have my answer and thank you Kirk. This is indeed more trouble than its worth at this point. Dammit. It seems like there will be alot of issues for just one thing, so its worth it at this point. Thank you Sanket, SLGray, Sir Chivas.

To clarify, if I add any CSS, it deletes the entire theme, thus why I've refused too. -sigh- Thank you all anyway.
