Issues with Forum Folders.

Post by Mudjosh » Thu Mar 19, 2009 4:12 am

I have an issue getting the forum folders to show:
http://revolutionforums.org/Designs/

I have tried to re-apply them in the acp. I have made sure they were being called for correctly in forumlist_body.html

I'm not sure where else to look.. firebug is no help.. At least to me..

Anyone have any ideas?

I'm having this same problem on my test board. I noticed that the images show up in IE but not FireFox.

Yup you are correct. The images are viewable in IE..

What style are you using by chance?

I designed Olive Branch off of Prosilver SE..

Hi,

Don't use style/theme/template names with spaces in them and for simplicity use lower case; "olive_branch" not "Olive Branch".

That did it..

Thanks Daz!

I'll have to remember that from now on..

Off-topic, what did you think of the style?

Hi,

It looks promising, the antialiasing on the rounded corners could do with looking at methinks and the offset of the content from the top is a little too much for me.

Hi,

You also have an issue with a colour in one of the CSS files '#fffff' instead of '#ffffff' (or #fff).

I found the #fffff.. Fixed..

And I will look into the antialiasing as soon as I get my gimp out.

Thanks for looking into it!

BTW, do you know a site that you can get your design tested to make sure it is compliant to all the standards? I know I saw one before but I forgot where I saw it at.

Hi,

As there are many different views of the various pages to phpBB testing compliance isn't going to be easy. Any automated tester would need to be identified as a bot, unregistered, logged in as a normal user, admin and maybe moderator. It is early days for me with phpBB 3, but I have given a fair bit of consideration to writing a script specifically for this purpose. If you want to take out some of the steps in doing it manually install the Web Developer add on for Firefox and use the "Validate local HTML" and CSS features. There are also get an add ons that let you view the source in an external application and so if you are using such as Dreamweaver you can use it to directly check the generated pages. I did have another method for phpBB 2 but the "better" features in phpBB 3 stopped it working.

There are a number of online validators the W3C one being the official one and therefore considered (by many) the only one to use.

Wow.. By W3C standards I am perfect!

Which is weird because I do not know xhtml. I mean.. I don't know what has been depreciated.. lol..

The only error I had was I used the old <center> tag to center a bit of adverts on the designs forum.. :oops:

All well.. It was a quick fix anywho.. I hate that they depreciated that tag.. typing out the css takes too long lol..

Anyway..

Thanks! I will look into those plugins.
