Halloween Font Added To The Font Drop Down Menu In The Forum?

Technical Details


Forum version : #phpBB2
Position : Member
Concerned browser(s) : Google Chrome
Who the problem concerns : Yourself
When the problem appeared : Since September
Forum link : http://Catwoman=^..^=

Description of problem

I don't really have a problem. I just didn't know how to catigorize it. It would be so great if you added a Halloween font to the drop down menu during the Halloween season. Many sites add the font: Chiller. That seems to be a popular font for a lot of websites! Maybe you could add it the last week of September????
Thank you so much!
Purrs,

Hi @Catwoman=^..^=,

To add more fonts, go to Modules > JavaScript codes management > Create a new script

Placement : In all the pages
Paste the following code :
Code:
$(function(){
  if ($.sceditor) {
    $.sceditor.defaultOptions.fonts = 'Arial,Arial Black,Comic Sans MS,Courier New,Georgia,Impact,Sans-serif,Serif,Times New Roman,Trebuchet MS,Verdana,Papyrus,FontAwesome,Chiller';
  }
});

To add / remove fonts, simply edit the font string in the script. Make sure to separate each font name by a comma.
Code:
'Arial,Arial Black,Comic Sans MS,Courier New,Georgia,Impact,Sans-serif,Serif,Times New Roman,Trebuchet MS,Verdana,Papyrus,FontAwesome,Chiller'

If any questions let me know. Smile


P.S.
Try not to use all bold in your messages. Wink

I'm talking about the drop down menu in the chat thread of my group.
My main concern about adding a font is the fact that since the other members of my group do not have the Chiller font added to their systems they will not 'see' the font as I see the font. So, what would be the point in doing that? Not much
Also, I'm only moderately computer literate. Could someone explain to me how I get to Modules >
JavaScript codes management > Create a new script? Thank so much!

Please don't use bold or color and keep to the default text. This is reserved for the staff for moderation.

Are you just wanting it for the editor, or are you wanting it for the whole forum?

You can get to the path I mention via the "Administration Panel" link at the bottom of the forum. From there you click the "Modules" tab and scroll to the very bottom where the HTML & JAVASCRIPT category can be found.

As for the font, you're true, if the member has not installed the font on their computer it wont render for them. In that case it falls back to another font in the font family declaration. A way to import fonts into your forum would be to use a CSS @font-face rule, however, you'll need to have the font file hosted another server that allows Cross origin resource sharing.

However, a site which serves free web fonts is google fonts. You can try to find a font similar to that if you want. When you do, just click on "quick use" and choose a method of installation.

If you have any questions or need any help let me know. Smile

Thank you for your response, but, I think we may have a misunderstanding. I'm not administration. I'm a member of a group. Does that change all the advise you've given me or what? LOL!

...actually it does. lol!

In that case, if you want, you can suggest this change to an administrator of your forum. Otherwise, I'm not sure if Forumotion will be modifying the content of their editor anytime soon. What a Face
