Possessed Board


My test board 2 is possessed!emoticon

The Possessed Board

I have no idea where where my Who's Online box went.

The text on the Topic List Table stayed black. (the #'s and date)

The Message Table turned transparent instead of white, and the buttons stayed white instead of the color I changed them to.

The New Topic & Add Reply changed them selves.

The Clickable Smilies jumped in little boxes..which weren't there before.
??
Thanks for helping in advance! emoticon

Re: Possessed Board


HI JEWEL....I can't see your board, no access. But one thing I can tell you I used to do when my test board went all wonky...
I'd copy all the css, html into one note or word doc from my test board and do another set from my REAL working board, put them side by side on my screen and go through the coding line by line till I saw a problem.
Might help you....don't know, if not Lesa or someone will be along shortly. emoticon

Re: Possessed Board


Hi Jewel,

Upon reading that, my first thought was "errors in your CSS." So, I ran your CSS through this validator, and it told me you have 21 errors. Here are the first two errors it shows:

quote:

25 .sidebox Value Error : background Lexical error at line 25, column 35. Encountered: ";" (59), after : "#" :;
28 .sidebox li Value Error : background Parse Error [:15px;font-weight: bold;font-family:tahoma;text-align:center;border:2px solid #000000;} .sidebox ul]



The error messages given by the validator don't always make sense, but if you go to line 25 in your CSS, you'll see this:

quote:

.sidebox {width:150px;background:#;



If you don't want to define a background color for .sidebox, then you need to take that whole part in red out. You can't just leave partial code there, because an error like that will prevent other (valid) code that comes after it from working.

Fixing line 25 will also take care of the error message at line 26 at the same time. The reason it says there's an error on line 26 is because the error on line 25 confused it, just as it will confuse browsers when viewing the page.

The next 7 error messages say:

quote:

47 #header img Value Error : border Lexical error at line 47, column 22. Encountered: ";" (59), after : "#" ;
47 Value Error : border Lexical error at line 47, column 42. Encountered: ";" (59), after : "#" :;
48 Unknown pseudo-element or pseudo-class :px
48 width Value Error : border Parse Error px;
49 Unknown pseudo-element or pseudo-class :px
49 height Value Error : border Parse Error px;
50 height Value Error : border Parse Error }



Looking at lines 47-50 in your CSS, I see this:

quote:

border:0px solid #; background-color:#;
   width:px;
   height:px;



All of that is invalid. If you don't want to define a border color, background color, width, or height for an <img> inside a div with the id of "header", then you can remove this whole chunk of CSS:

quote:

/* DEFINE BORDER, WIDTH, AND HEIGHT ON THE BANNER IMAGE (IMG) */
#header img {
   border:0px solid #; background-color:#;
   width:px;
   height:px;
}



Although the validator says there's a problem with lines 66 and 67, those are actually fine. The validator always complains when Internet Explorer-specific code is used, but it won't hurt anything.

The next errors showing are at lines 75 and 76:

quote:

75 .forum_list_header_newtext_td, .forum_list_header_forum_td, .forum_list_header_topics_td, .forum_list_header_posts_td, .forum_list_header_lastpost_td, .topic_list_header_modbox_td Value Error : background-color Lexical error at line 75, column 200. Encountered: ";" (59), after : "#" :;
76 Value Error : background-color Parse Error [: 20px; padding-top: 1px; padding-bottom: 2px;} .forumlist_separator_td]



Here are line 75 and 76 of your CSS:

quote:

.forum_list_header_newtext_td, .forum_list_header_forum_td, .forum_list_header_topics_td, .forum_list_header_posts_td, .forum_list_header_lastpost_td, .topic_list_header_modbox_td{ background-color:#; height: 20px; padding-top: 1px; padding-bottom: 2px;}
.forumlist_separator_td {height:21px;text-indent:-10000px;background:url(); repeat-x; padding-top: 1px; padding-bottom: 2px;}


Again, you either need to define a background color or remove the part in red.

The part I've highlighted in blue won't technically hurt anything, but it isn't necessary to have it there unless you're actually going to put a background image there.

Line 80, same problem:

quote:

.forumlistboardstatstable {width: 740px; border: 1px solid #000000; background-color:#;}



You can remove line 84 completely since url() without an image url between ( and ) doesn't do anything. But the part in red below is a major error:
quote:

#ak_forum_2 {background:url{();}



Line 110:

quote:

.topic_list_header_modbox_td, .topic_list_header_newtext_td, .topic_list_header_posticon_td, .topic_list_header_topic_td, .topic_list_header_startedby_td, .topic_list_header_replies_td, .topic_list_header_views_td, .topic_list_header_lastpost_td {padding: 5px;background-color:#;height: 20px; padding-top: 1px; padding-bottom: 2px;}


Removing the part in red should also take care of the error at line 111 at the same time, unless my eyes missed something in the code itself.

The error message for line 141 says:

quote:

Parse Error repeat-x



That would be this:

quote:

.ak_msg_seememberlist_head_user_td, .ak_msg_seememberlist_head_date_td, .ak_msg_seememberlist_head_im_td, .ak_msg_seememberlist_head_pm_td, .ak_msg_seememberlist_head_email_td {font: 700 11px verdana, tahoma, arial; color: #000000; height: 20px; background-color:#A3D4F5; repeat-x; padding-top: 1px; padding-bottom: 2px;}



Since there is no background image defined there, you can remove the part in red. If you did define a background image and needed it to repeat horizontally, you would need to add to it so it reads:

background-repeat: repeat-x;

The last error is at line 216:

quote:

background-color:#3300f;



Color codes can only be 6 or 3 characters. That one has 5.

You're welcome, Jewel. emoticon

Don't feel too embarrassed. Microsoft has a lot more errors than that on their website. emoticon

You still had 2 errors in your CSS, so I removed the code that was causing them. Good job fixing the rest of them. emoticon

This post was plagiarized, in a feeble attempt to make it look legitimate and sneak a spam link in.
Too bad for me, I don't even know what I'm posting!

And the above two posts, my friends, are examples of the absolute quickest way to get yourself banned from all of Runboard. emoticon
