CSS Does Not Work

In progress CSS Does Not Work

Post by Hydreigon205 on May 17th 2014, 5:30 am

Hello, I need help with my CSS.

My Forum (Click)

I use phpBB2.

As you may see, some things such as the link hover, mouse, and chatbox details are from CSS, but that was from the skin I have installed. No matter what code I put in my CSS, nothing happens. Only the codes given automatically by the skin I installed worked. I could edit the image links inside the codes, but that was it. Adding codes did not work, whether what type of version it was, phpBB2 doesn't work, phpBB3 doesn't work, PunBB doesn't work, no format for the CSS stylesheet works. Could I please get some help on this so I can add codes and make my forum look cooler?

Thanks in advance!            salut

Hi Very Happy

Can you list them all specifically (The CSS code you need right now)? I'll try to see if I can work something out.

Well, one of them is I'm trying to get the Navbar to be able to not just show that it's being hovered over. I want it to look half transparent when hovering the mouse over it. I saw a code that APE wanted that does the same thing. I copied and pasted it. Nothing happened. I also tried other codes. I want to be able to freely put codes into my CSS to make my forum cooler. I tried many different codes, from other things that does the same thing. Nothing works. If you give me a code for what I want currently, it probably will not work. I need my CSS fixed :/

Well, by installing a skin a default CSS may be added. Probably there are already some codes that are used for the changes you want to make and that's why you cannot change them.
For example, for the mainmenu (menu nav bar) there is already a code in it.
search this
Code:
a.mainmenu:hover
and in the code there is a field that says
Code:
opacity:1;
Change that and make it
Code:
opacity:0.5;

Tell us the changes you want to make and we can give you the codes you want.

Well you have to change them one by one. If you want you can ask here patiently for the codes and the changes you want to make!

You can not edit the basic CSS.  You have to add your codes to the CSS stylesheet which will override the basic CSS.

Hi Very Happy

If you deactivate basic CSS, the basic format will be nulled completely. Also, by override, you should add !important to those codes which cannot cancel the ones in the basic CSS. Ex:

Code:
.bodyline {
  background: url(IMG LINK) no-repeat !important;
}

Can I have codes that changes links that the buttons on the Navbar lead to? (I'm pretty sure the link would be in the code, so you don't need to ask what links they lead to, just give me each code for each button on the navbar, then I can manually put in the links)

Thx Very Happy

Are you exactly wanting to change the names or the links?

If your navigation menu has images, you can create new images and replaces the old ones.

Hi Very Happy

For that to happen, you actually have to stop using the default navigation bar Smile. But if my interpretation is wrong and you just want to change the text of it, you should do something like:

Code:
a.mainmenu[href="/"] {
  font-size: 0px !important;
}
a.mainmenu[href="/"]:after {
 font-size: 12px !important;
 content: "My Home";
}

Your navbar is already coded up to glow up if im right you can not have the 2 of them at the same time thats why it;s crashing and not working.

if you give me an account by pm i will look over your codes in CSS and tell you the codes give you the ones you need to change but if you want it to glow light blue and fade in and out like the codes i use then it will not work


EDIT:
This is the thread Hydreigon205 is looking at about the codes i wanted Wink

The codes you need to change that are already in the navbar is the following one's

Code:
img#i_icon_mini_portal, img#i_icon_mini_index, img#i_icon_mini_faq, img#i_icon_mini_members, img#i_icon_mini_groups, img#i_icon_mini_register, img#i_icon_mini_loging, img#i_icon_mini_logout

you have to remove them and put the new codes in there place to get it to work

I said links. Not changing their image or their transparency. I know how to change that stuff. I just need the codes to change the links they lead to.

Why would you want to change where they lead?

So I can make links in the Navbar such as:

"[Home][Forums][Staff][Help]. etc...

So I can make my forum look more professional, and not just a regular forum.

Yes, I will keep whatever links you wish to keep
(FAQ, Profile, etc.)

I just want to make my forum look better instead of all the forums just being on one page. I could make more portal pages and link the Navbar links to those portals that are certain information about my server and forum (Forum created for my Minecraft server)

Oh, and I would also like to know how to make a shoutbox to post on the front page as a widget (Not a chatbox, like a shoutbox where people can post something in that widget if they have enough posts) and their post will show up in the chatbox. I believe this requires a CSS code as well.

You can create new buttons, and hide the ones you do not want.

Administration Panel > Display > Homepage > Headers & Navgiation

You can get the links from your browser when you visit the pages.
