Post by Gary on December 22nd 2010, 5:32 am

I want to replace "Who Is Online" icon...........

.............with a "Picture Of The Day".

Example http://cafenikon.twilight-newmoon.org/forum


I have done that OK.

Now, how do I change the information bar from reading "Who Is Online ?" to "Picture Of The Day"?

Thanks so much for your help!

You would want to go and find an icon. You can always use Google to find these icons. Then, you will go into the ACP and change the picture.

ACP > Display > Pics and Colors > Pics management > Who is Online ?

Replace the current URL with the one of your new picture.

That should do it!

EDIT: You can also make your won one in a photo editing software and then upload it to a website like TinyPic and then copy the link.

I have done that, thanks.

I have switched the icon with a photograph.

Now how do I change the wording

Who Is On Line

to

Picture Of The Week.

I am sorry, but I think you would need coding. Which I don't know about. So I could be of no help. I am sorry

I do not believe, and I could be wrong that you can change the wording. Now what you could do, is in the modules section in the control panel, choose forum widget managment. You can create your own widget and it will show either to the right or left side. Give it the title picture of the week, then upload the picture to a hosting site. Then copy the html code and place that for the widget code. Make sure that you size the picture to the size of the widget.

Might not be what you are wanting, however, it might get you to where you can have a picture of the week and have it titled as well...

A good way to change a default link / title
such as who is online is with transparent font
and a text image added to the background.

Example: (who is in town background image)


The image should remain approximately 111 x 15
*White "Picture of the day" for black background.

Try adding the code below to your Css sheet...
Admin PanelDisplayPictures and ColorsColorsCSS Stylesheet
Code:
a[href="/viewonline"] {
   color: transparent;
   background-image: url('http://i56.tinypic.com/fuaruq.png');
   background-repeat: no-repeat;
   background-position: left middle;
   }

a:hover[href="/viewonline"] {
   color: transparent;
   background-image: url('http://i56.tinypic.com/fuaruq.png');
   background-repeat: no-repeat;
   background-position: left middle; 
   filter:alpha(opacity=70);
   -moz-opacity: 0.65;
   opacity: 0.65;
   }
This will also add a color change effect (dimming)
by changing the opacity on mouseover/hover.

I like where we are going with this.

How about the CSS code to push the "Who Is On Line ?" to the far right, but otherwise leave it alone?

Something like:

a[href="/viewonline"] {
text-align: right;

}

But THIS DOES NOT WORK.

HELP! lol

Use this to move who is online to the right
Code:
a[href="/viewonline"] { margin-left:86%; }

Is there a code I could use to automatically reduce the size of the picture of the day / week widget to say 160 x 200 wide?
