In progress How do I make my message backgrounds white??? New to forumotion, please help...

Post by PatriciaD on October 4th 2011, 12:30 am


I am new to forumotion and totally lost. I am thinking of relocating my group from yuku due to the many problems I've had as of late with posting and even accessing my yuku group. I'm a whiz with the yuku admin panel and customization panel but totally lost here. How do I change the post/message backgrounds to white without changing anything else in the skin?

Go to your AP > Display > Templates > General > viewtopic_body template and find this

Code:
      <td class="{postrow.displayed.ROW_CLASS}"{postrow.displayed.THANK_BGCOLOR} valign="top" width="100%" height="28" colspan="2">
         <table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
            <tr>
               <td><span class="postdetails"><img src="{postrow.displayed.MINI_POST_IMG}"

Replace it with this

Code:
   <td class="novo"{postrow.displayed.THANK_BGCOLOR} valign="top" width="100%" height="28" colspan="2">
         <table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
            <tr>
               <td><span class="postdetails"><img src="{postrow.displayed.MINI_POST_IMG}"

Save and publish your template on the green cross Add

Than add this to AP > Display > Colors > CSS

Code:
.novo {
    background: white;
}

Example:

You can change only the part behind the letters by only adding this to CSS

Code:
.postbody {
    background: white;
}

But that wont look nice.

I'm sorry, I wasn't trying to insinuate that the solution you gave me was no good. I only meant to say it didn't work for me but I appreciated the help all the same. I didn't realize that the green plus sign had to be clicked in addition to saving....sorry. Once I figured out where the green plus sign was located and clicked, it did work. Now I have light text on a white background which is hard to read. How do I change the text color in that area?

------------------------

I am editing this message because I have no idea what you mean by ""double/triple posts"" and ""not tolerated"" and I am afraid that by posting I may be breaking your rules... although I did read your forum rules and saw nothing about duplcate posts or 24 hour periods.

I did post one message a second time because after posting I didn't see it there so figured it didn't work. My computer is dying a slow death so iI thought it was my computer acting up and reposted. Anyway, thats the only thing I can figure might have happened if indeed I did post the same message twice, and if I did, I do apologize for the error.

If that wasn't the problem I find myself asking ...How am I supposed to ask for help, let you know if something worked, or say ty if it did if I am not supposed to post more than once within 24 hours??? I'm feeling very confused and out of place here at the moment. Confused

May I remind you that double/triple posting isn't tolerated unless separated by 24 hours (Use the edit button) Wink

Did you publish the template since all I see is the CSS in your codes?

Publishing as in after saving it pressed the green cross Add

That picture is taken on a phpBB2 when I did it.

Nothing is wrong with the solution.

I share my artwork in yuku with the psp community and because yuku was being such a pita and I couldn't get in for weeks I thought it might be a good idea to set up somewhere else so I could continue to share my tubes with those that enjoy using them. If I don't have a group to post them in I have no way to share my tubes.

I just wanted to let you know that I no longer will be asking for help as I deleted my forum so I won't be posting too many times in a 24 hour period any longer. I guess this must be God's way of telling me it's time to quit drawing and sharing and move on. I found that even making the simplest changes in my forum was a complicated venture and I don't feel I am allowed to post enough to get the help I require. Yuku is more user friendly but not accessible to me with all the technical difficulties they have had since their recent change in owners.

I'm sure this post will be deleted but I wanted be considerate and at least let you to know that I have left so you can shut this topic down now that it is no longer needed. Take care.

Hugs, Patricia

Patricia, you can ask help as much as you want but by following the rules. There are some members who abuse this & hence such rules are in place. So the rules are equal for everyone. You should retrieve back your forum & work on it. We didn't intend to upset you in anyway.
