Style won't change
« on: January 02, 2006, 01:28:05 am »

I have another problem. It's similar to this one - http://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/index.php?topic=25817.0 - but not only do the scrollbar colours not change, but nothing I edit in the style.css file shows up when I've saved it. The changes also do not show up when I edit template.html without having a custom header/footer.

You might have to try a forced refresh with control+F5. If that doesn't help, make sure that the file is referring to the correct css file. If that all fails, please provide a link. Also, describe what you have changed and what it's supposed to look like.

http://www.nkidman.com/images2323/gallery2/index.php

I've added my scrollbar colours into the style.css file like this -

body {
        font-family : Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
        font-size: 10px;
        color : #AEAEAE;
        margin: 0px;
        background-color:#FFFFFF;
        background-image:url(/layoutgfx/bg2.gif);
        background-repeat:repeat;
        scrollbar-face-color: #DBDBDB;
        scrollbar-shadow-color: #FFFFFF;
        scrollbar-highlight-color: #FFFFFF;
        scrollbar-3dlight-color: #FFFFFF;
        scrollbar-darkshadow-color: #FFFFFF;
        scrollbar-track-color: #DBDBDB;
        scrollbar-arrow-color: #CB6597;
}

The scrollbar should be like http://www.nkidman.com/

My other problem is with another theme I've created but I'm going to have another look at that and then post the details about that.

Of course nothing works correctly - you have multiple <body> delcarations, etc.  You need to read up on how to write HTML.

Well, with all do respect, http://www.nkidman.com/ is a mess! It's a suprise that it still look good!!

You did your website using PSP, bad idea! (same goes for photoshop) So take for exemple:

Code: [Select]
<BODY>

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.makepovertyhistory.org/whiteband_small_right.js"></script>

<body background="/layoutgfx/bg2.gif" valign="center">
<body bgcolor="#DBDBDB">

You can have only one "body" declaration on a page. This is correct:

Code: [Select]
<body style="background-image: url(/layoutgfx/bg2.gif); background-color: #DBDBDB;" valign="middle">

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.makepovertyhistory.org/whiteband_small_right.js"></script>

And also the meta information is wrong, this is correct:

Code: [Select]

}
</script>
<link rel="STYLESHEET" href="/layoutgfx/style.css" type="text/css">

And that's not the only thing that needs correction, take the time to correct youre code. It would be a good thing for your nice website.

i appreciate your reply Bacchus, but I wasn't asking for your opinion on my website. It looks fine to me and I've had no complaints that it looks messed up or anything so far. I'm not interested in learning the very latest version of xhtml or whatever it is. I just want to run a simple website.

Back to the original point, is the reason the colours I've specified for the scrollbar are not wokring because I have "multiple body declarations"?!
