Forum Upgrades
« on: August 17, 2006, 09:25:59 pm »
Hello, SMF For Free.

I just took a look at the available SMF For Free forum upgrades hoping I'd find what might suit my purpose, but, unhappily, no luck.

What I was looking for was an upgrade that would give me access to the forum code and the style sheet for the Mercury theme which my forum (Classical Music & Opera Forum) uses so that I could make a few minor display alterations. (I need the code part only for the main title display as, oddly, it appears that its display is not controlled by the style sheet alone, but is coded in a <span> statement in the forum code .)

Any chance of working something out along that line?

Thanks for your attention to this.

ACD (A.C. Douglas)

I could see doing the stylesheet. I could see maybe adding a class selector or id to the title for which you can then edit the style though the stylesheet.

That would work, SMF.

How much for the upgrade?

I am going to check out if I can do when I come home from work in about an hour. I would do that for free.

Huh?  Do what for free?  Give me access to the Mercury style sheet with the added title class included?

That's more than generous, SMF.  I insist on paying some token amount at least.

Please.

Ok. Think I got it working.
Added id="maintitle" to the title

Added the mercury.css to your style editor. The stylename must be called mercury in order to work.

Many thanks, SMF.  You've done me and the forum a most gracious service.

The added id= works just fine.  However, that lovely background image under the main title has mysteriously disappeared even when I remove my new Style Sheet entry from the Style Sheet (i.e., thereby leaving the Style Sheet unchanged) to take advantage of your newly added <span id="maintitle"> to the forum code .

Can we get that important background image back as before?

Brought it back. The image had a different location since we moved the style sheet.

A thousand thanks, SMF.

I'm going to get to work now making all the little tweaks I need to make to the Style Sheet.

You've been more than generous concerning all this business, SMF, and most gracious into the bargain.  I cannot begin to thank you enough.

SMF:

Beginning just a few seconds ago, I'm getting a "Cannot find server or DNS Error" when I try to access my forum

(http://musicandopera.smfforfree.com/index.php).

Is this a problem having to do with the change in location of the Mercury Style Sheet, or is it a global problem with the forums?

SMF:

Forum is up now, and seems to be running as it should.

Thanks.

(P.S. What was the problem?)

Might have been too many emails that caused a fault.
