Halloween skin


Hey all!
First of all I'd like to give kudos to Skokey for designing this superb skin and pull my hat off to Lesigner girl for codding it! LOVE IT!

I have one miner problem with it though: upon trying to post a reply I noticed that a lot of the smilies are out of the smiley box. I expect I need to resize the smiley box but this is where I need your help, where and how do I do that? emoticon


Thank you!

Re: Halloween skin


I'm guessing it's somewhere in there: ???


[sign in to see URL] { border: 0; }
.msgform_clickable_smiley_box_h { border: 0; border-collapse: collapse; }
.smileyhead {
  background: url([sign in to see URL]) left top repeat-x;
  color: #b2b2b4; line-height: 16px; vertical-align: middle;
  border: solid #000; border-width: 2px 2px 0 2px; }
.msgform_clickable_smiley_box_b td {
  border: 1px solid #000; }
.msgform_clickable_smiley_box_b {
   width: 100%; border: 1px solid #000; }

Hey Fwench emoticon

It sounds like you could use a ]scrolling smiley box, and a narrower subject line and message box. Follow that link for the first part, then adjust the width here in your CSS for the 2nd part:

/* POSTING AREA */
.ak_msgform_subject_right_td input, .ak_msgform_message_right_td textarea{
    width: 475px; border: 1px solid #000; background: #b2b2b4;
}


Edit: Sorry, I'm half asleep. Thank you for the compliment, and I'll be sure to let Skokey how much you love his design. emoticon

Re: Halloween skin


I have a question if one of you guys wouldn't mind...

I have inserted a smiley scrollbar and it's working perfectly for the "Reply" part. The problem I'm running into is in the "Post New Message" box.

Can you direct me how to change the Post New screen dimensions to match those of the Reply to a message screen? The New Message area is smaller and my smilies are still outside the margins. I hope that makes sense.

I can add an admin to take a look to see what I mean...

Re: Halloween skin


Hi Shirl,

The "Submit" button is causing that difference. On the reply screen, it says "Submit reply," and on the new topic screen, it says "Submit new topic," which makes that column wider on the new topic screen.

The solution is to define a width for that column that is wide enough to accommodate the "Submit new topic" button. Since there is nothing defined for that column now, you'll need to add it to your CSS.

Where it says this:

/* POSTING AREA */
.ak_msgform_subject_right_td input, .ak_msgform_message_right_td textarea{
    width:300px; border: 1px solid #000; background: #b2b2b4;
}


Add the part in bold:

/* POSTING AREA */
.ak_msgform_subject_left_td, .ak_msgform_message_left_td {
  width: 100px;
}

.ak_msgform_subject_right_td input, .ak_msgform_message_right_td textarea{
    width:300px; border: 1px solid #000; background: #b2b2b4;
}


I didn't test the width on that, so you may need to change it until you find a good width.

In addition to that, you may want to define a smaller width for the input and textarea, by editing the last "width" where it says 300px in the CSS posted above.

and/or...

You can also define a narrower width for the smiley scrollbox, by editing the width for .smileyhead and .smileytable in your CSS.

Re: Halloween skin


That helped somewhat, thank you! Can you tell me where I would change the background color for the Post New smiley box? I'd like to make it lighter. Some of my smilies are breaking up on the dark background.

I played around with some of the codes before asking, but I kept changing the colors of other things. lol
