Customising my new theme - Pt1
« on: December 09, 2010, 10:09:37 pm »

Hi

I'm trying to match a phpBB3 theme by altering the curve theme a little (OK, a lot) I've just run into a few problems and I was wonding if anyone could help please? I am currently working on trying to make the overhead menu in Coppermine match the one in phpBB3.

Coppermine here - http://www.brummiesfans.com/coppermine/index.php?cat=2
phpBB3 here - http://www.brummiesfans.com/main/

Firstly, why when hovering over Home in the overhead menu, does it try to invoke a drop-down menu when there are no child menu items hanging off "Home"?

Secondly, and this is the main part of this post, what controls the text decoration of the menu items?

The style.css file wording follows, which hopefully will be of help.

Firstly, why when hovering over Home in the overhead menu, does it try to invoke a drop-down menu when there are no child menu items hanging off "Home"?

I should just point out that this is perculiar to logged out / unregistered users only. Once logged in, there are drop-down menu items and it does make more sense.

Thanks

Has been fixed in cpg1.5.10.


Secondly, and this is the main part of this post, what controls the text decoration of the menu items?
http://documentation.coppermine-gallery.net/en/dev_tools.htm#dev_tools_web_development - I recommend Firebug to find out such things.

Thanks, that's good news. I look forward to upgrading once my style/theme is finished

I've got some of those diagnostic tools installed. In addition I've also got X-Ray and Inspect Element installed too. They tell me that the CSS styles that control the menu are "dropmenu" and "firstlevel". I have just gone through all instances of these classes, and where text-decoration or font-weight is mentioned, I've added "strong", but to no effect.

STYLE.CSS (relevant parts)

.topmenu a {

Well I've been through it again and I'm still stuck.

All the tools that I have point to the "firstlevel" element in style.css being what controls the appearance of the overhead menu. I've added font-weight and text-decoration attributes (see below) all over the place where I thought that it may make a difference...and it hasn't.

Code: [Select]
.dropmenu li a.firstlevel {
    margin-right: 8px;
    text-decoration: bold;
    font-weight: strong;   
}

.dropmenu li a.firstlevel span.firstlevel {
    display: block;
    position: relative;
    left: -5px;
    padding-left: 5px;
    height: 22px;
    line-height: 19px;
    text-decoration: bold;
    font-weight: strong;
}

.dropmenu li a.active span.firstlevel {
    background: #ffff00 no-repeat 0 0;
    text-decoration: bold;
    font-weight: strong;
}

/* the hover effects */
.dropmenu li a.firstlevel:hover {
    background: #ffff00 no-repeat 100% -30px;
    color: #d00000;
    cursor: pointer;
    text-decoration: bold;
    font-weight: strong;
}

.dropmenu li a.firstlevel:hover span.firstlevel {
    background: #ffff00 no-repeat 0 -30px;
    text-decoration: bold;
    font-weight: strong;
}

I'd be happy to hear from anyone who knows what is blocking this menu from getting bold text, and how to get around the block. My style is based on the Curve style, so I would expect that there may be some others who would appreciate knowing how to do this little edit.

Thanks in advance.

try
Code: [Select]
.dropmenu li a.firstlevel {
font-weight: bold;
}

what you have
Code: [Select]
.dropmenu li a.firstlevel {
    margin-right: 8px;
    text-decoration: bold;
    font-weight: strong;   
}
is not the correct css attributes
strong is an html tag like
Code: [Select]
<strong>home</strong>text-decoration is for things like underlines

This is a helpful site for css if your willing to learn it

Thanks for your help again Jeff. I've made it my aim to get to grips with CSS much more once that this project is over and I've got some "learning time" rather than "doing time" that my diary is full of at the moment. I'll have a look at that link for sure.

And yes, that advice has certainly cured the problem. I can now go to work on a Monday morning through thick snow in a much better mood for that. Merry Christmas to you!

Cheers

Hi Jeff

Sorry, forgot to ask, do you have any ideas on how this problem may be solved?

Has been fixed in cpg1.5.10.

It looks like it's back in cpg 1.5.12 - I've just upgraded here - www.brummiesfans.com/photos  and when logged out, the menu problem is still there for logged-out users. See attachment.

You have to upgrade your custom theme, too. It works as expected with the curve theme.
