Ha, ha! I was just working on that for you, but I will have to come back to it. Hopefully, Pastor Rick will get it done before I come back.

Images can be controlled through CSS, HTML, Edit Colors, and even the Custom Language Set.

Let me check...

On the Buttons skin, the majority of the images are in the CSS (There is one in the Edit Colors: the tabletop plaid background and one in the Custom Language Set: the new post button). I'll go look to see what you want to do and reply there so you don't have to worry about missing the answer over here.

Are you referring to the fact that all times on your board are in GMT? This setting is the first option in your board's miscellaneous settings. Just keep in mind that people will be seeing whatever time zone you set, which will not necessarily agree with some of your members' time zones.

Do you mean in the "Board statistics" box on the main page, or within the post/comment itself?

IIRC, the first has never listed the last thread/comment made there. (Or hasn't for a very long time.)[I don't know if there is CSS/HTML to put it there, but if there is, I'm sure Lesa or Pastor Rick can help you with it.]

And the second does have the timestamp there. Look beneath the member's info box to the left of the comment/post. Beneath the:

I will repeat: CSS is the acronym for Cascading Style Sheets. CSS does not, and will not ever, add content of any kind. All CSS can do is style what is already there.

HTML is for adding content, but it can not access information.

Not everything on the web is built with HTML and CSS. If you want to collect information and display it where it isn't already displayed, you will need to use a programming language to scrape that information from either the page itself or the RSS feed, then use that programming language to display it elsewhere on the page.

Since it is impossible for you to use a programming language (Javascript, PHP, Perl, etc) on your own board, you would need to put the programming code somewhere else, then display it through an iframe. This is how I created the quick reply and the 'jump to page'. All you can see is the HTML and CSS if you look at the source code, but what you can't see is the PHP that generates the HTML.

Re: Adding image to....


What about the web code (wiki?) embed thingy that could be added to websites? I never used it, so I can't remember exactly how it worked ... or even if Runboard still has it ... I can't seem to find it anyways.

I think it had the board stats, but can't remember if it also listed the latest thread/post.


[Edit]

Widget! I did a Google search and found what I was looking for:

[sign in to see URL]

[Edit]

D'oh! It was right beneath the "Delete this board" button.

You could use the widget, but you would have to put it on your own PHP-enabled website and display it through an iframe on your board, just like you would have to do with any other script. It would display redundant information (link to board, number of members/topics/posts) unless you use CSS to hide that redundant information.
