Solved Reputation button customization

Post by Louve on January 2nd 2015, 6:16 pm

Hello all!

First, thank you for providing this service. The forum features and functions are second to none and we're finding that everything is very easy to navigate and understand.

Having said that...

As others before, I want to dress up the +/- reputation buttons within the topics. I've tried all available relevant code that I could find here, but I continue to have issues. Trust me, I tried to make this work on my own before asking for help Embarassed


This appeared to be the most referred to post:

http://help.forumotion.com/t48922-change-the-reputation-bar

But, when I get to the part where I paste the copied txt into the CSS tab, I get an error when I submit it. It says that the code is too long. Any suggestions?

I've tried other scripts I found, but all I've managed to do so far is make the +/- disappear lol.

Thank you for all the help I've already received as a lurker Smile

Ηello and Happy New Year,

The easiest way is to change them through the templates. Now that you have template access its easier to do it that way.
Go to viewtopic_body template and find:
Code:
<!-- BEGIN switch_vote -->
and change the + and the - of the two codes it will find with the images you want:
Code:
<img src="IMAGE URL" />
Save template and publish with Add and you are done! Wink

Happy New Year to you! And thank you for taking the time to reply.

I feel bad, I should mention that now, I'm not even sure what form of script I have. I thought all along it was phpbb3, but I thought I better verify before asking for further help. At the bottom right of the index page, it has a link to punbb Shocked

It must be as I don't have access to templates.

Now that I know this, I'll try a bit different code. Either way, you helped me tremendously...thank you!

Wow, I am embarrassed! I created a 2nd username and gave myself Admin rights. Turns out, he's not allowed access to Templates!

All is good, thank you! Even though it was all me, your reply, once again, got me headed in the right direction!

Pleas mark this as Solved...and a lesson learned lol.

Hello again,

You can see your forum version if you go to Admin Panel > Display > Skins > Choose a theme
and to the Version tab the dot selected is your forum version.

The templates, only the founder of the forum (the one who created it) can access them. All Admins have Administration Panel rights but not to the templates. And with the new updates to the versions, now all versions have template editing!

Glad i helped by any way!
So long,
Luffy
