Forum Theme/Style Alterations

Postby cprice12 » Mon Apr 09, 2012 10:53 am

I'm just messing with some stuff. No need for alarm...the site isn't broken or messing up on your end.

It's complicated, but I'm incorporating a header into the forum...I took it off a while back during maintenance and it's really lame not having a header in the forum.
I had to screw with the style sheets to get it to display...and they are kind of a mess...but I wanted to get the header up there before the announcement of the playoff contest.

I'll get it cleaned up and have separate styles for the header... hopefully sooner rather than later.

I'd be happy if I didn't have to log in 12 times a day on five different devices... but I may have OCD :)

I feel like I'm using my parent's computer with the new giant LGB font.

Yeah, the forum needed a header...otherwise, there are no links to the home page or other pages of the site...plus there wasn't a site name up there. We've always had a header, but after we switched to the CMS for the site, it didn't match the main page header. After a while, I wanted it to match, so I took the old one down.

Usually, copying a header from an html page to a phpbb forum header is as simple as copying the html from the home page and putting it in the overall header of the forum, but we use a CMS for the site, and there are style sheets with that so copying the html and style sheet reference links screws with the look of the forum since it supersedes some of the forum style sheets references. So I completely removed the header for a while, while I did some research on how some other folks handled that issue. But I wanted to get it back up there for the playoffs...so there it is for now.

I just need to go in and create a separate style sheet for the forum header...which isn't a big deal, I just need to find time to do it.

It took me a moment to figure out what it was, but I agree. I hope it doesn't jinx us!

I could have done it that way. Either-or...doesn't really matter.
The cup is part of the 16th bluenote.

This font is driving me crazy. It's given the board a real cheesy feel.

I'm just mad about the game tonight, but seriously...the font does kind of suck.

So, I was tinkering with the forum and I inadvertently f'd up the home page. :lol:

I need to reload the original style sheets, which are at home. I'll have it fixed tonight.
