style inheritance flickering

Post by Sajaki » Wed Dec 13, 2017 8:56 pm

hi,

Has anyone seen a 3.2 style inherited from prosilver shortly show prosilver colors for a microsecond before finally applying the css of the child style ?
In case of 3 levels of inheritance i even get all 2 previous ones to flicker through. this is on localhost with recompile stale = true.

My 3.2 custom style inherits from prosilver but only some of prosilver's templates.
It loads all of it's own css files so I get no flicker from it loading prosilver's css files first.

The only time I've seen that flicker you talk about is when I have an extra css file change some css values.
Like with style switcher ext added. Or with a color changer ext. Never with the style.

Hi Andreas,

Interesting. When a style uses 'inheritance', only the template files are inherited. The CSS is loaded from whichever style you're using.

So it sounds like a problem with CSS overrides taking too long to kick in. If you're able to upload your forum to a test server, we'll be able to have a look :)

hi ;)
I had this issue with the pbWoW3 Heroes style for 3.2.1 (see here http://www.avathar.be/bbdkp/viewforum.php?f=26), but on a live server it doesn't seem so bad.
