Hi,

I'm a webmaster of an existing Geeklog website, but now installing a new Geeklog myself.
Hopefully this will be a simple question Big Grin

I want to change the max width of te Professional theme to 980px. I did so in the stylesheet
and it seems to work fine:
PHP Formatted Code
}
body {
  width:980px;
  background:#FFFFFF;
 color:#000000;
 font:0.8em arial,verdana,tahoma,helvetica,sans-serif;
  padding:0px;
  margin:0px auto;
  border:1px solid #E7E7E7;
 padding-left:1px;
  padding-right:1px;
}
 


Next I want the background-colour to be blue, #006699. I tried several things, like:

PHP Formatted Code

/* SEMANTICS ******************************************************************/

a {
  background-colour:#006699;
}
 

But now the body of the website turns blue as well... :shock:

Anyone who can help me out on this one?

Thank you Ivy, but I was not looking for another theme, I just want the background
to turn blue (and it did!) without the body (storyblock/articleblock?) to turn blue as
well.
Must be simple, I think? :pray:

All of these theme is based on ProfessionalCSS.

So you can make new theme by adding custom.css and images/custom/* and header, footer, functions.php to ProfessionalCSS_en.

If you want to change theme, please change only custom.css.

aloys,
The above is several color variation of custum.css files for theme professionalCSS.
Hope you check the difference with the original custom.css and find how to customize in your needs.

Thanks both of you, for your help! :shakehands:

I have FTP-copied the entire map Professional_CSS in the Layout-map, where als the map
Professional resides.

After starting Geeklog and logging on, I have changed the configuration/theme to Professional_CSS.
I have also copied the color variations of custom.css files to the map Professional_CSS.

Then I renamed the file custom.css to custom.css-bu (backup) and I've copied the file custom.css_red
to custom.css.

Now I expected some changes, and some red... Bu I don't see any difference compared to the original
Professional-theme! :shock:

(I've checked configuration/theme and it reads "Professional_CSS", so it is installed!)
My test-installation can be found on www.vakkenhulp.nl

Looks red to me ...

Stylesheets are often cached - try a forced reload in your browser.

You can also attach a version number to the URL for your stylesheet and increase it every time you make a change - this ensures that the browser notices the changes. For example, here on geeklog.net (view the HTML source of the site), we're up to style.css?v=18

bye, Dirk

Yes, thanks Dirk!
I still can't get Firefox to do a complete reload, but Chrome and Explorer show a red Geeklog!

Experimenting goes on... Big Grin

I've been boinking around with this issue "my BBCode bold" doesn't work for two days. After reading this post, I went back to my test message and typed in the lines:

this is bold
this is bold

Then I highlighted the 2nd "this is bold" and used the bbcode Bold button to get the bold tags around it. Hit the preview, and behold, then I could see the bold effect. It was way too subtle in that Lucida font.

I'm using a modified "Contemporary" template, so I went in to edit my "root/layout/Contemporary/style.css" and changed all references from the default "Lucida Grande" font to "trebuchet ms" and voila. The difference with the bold is dramatic, and the font is close enough that it doesn't alter spacing too dramatically. It's a heavier font, too, so a little easier on the eyes.

This is the kind of thing that drives handicap accessible aware webmaster bonkers. :blahblah:
