sub-forums highlighted when new posts are made

Post by TheButcher2 »

Hi would it be possible for the sub-forum title on the index page to highlight so it's easier for viewers to see where there are new posts, please see attached image, say for example "Affiliate programs" to turn red when there are new posts there.

Thanks

Dave

Hi, please test this:

Code: Select all

ul.topiclist li.row dt a.subforum.unread {
	border-left: 1px solid #AA0000;
	font-style: italic;
	padding-left: 2px;
	color: #AA0000;
}

That's CSS based on Prosilver -> Only just CSS.
Example -> Add it at the end of the colour.css (Prosilver) or add this e.g. in your "custom.css" (namely an example). Your design may use different style directories, which defies my information.

Clean up all caches, even after pageview in the browser (CTRL / F5) and *test the results with an other User ... ==>
*Own contributions (posts) are not unread ... ;)
Here it works fine ...

Thanks again.

If I may ask a follow up question, if I want to make a forum the same way, one that does not have sub forums, how would I do it.

I tried this, but I guess I am off it did not work. I guess my code skills are not that good.

Code: Select all

ul.topiclist li.row dt a.forum.unread {
	border-left: 1px solid #AA0000;
	font-style: italic;
	padding-left: 2px;
	color: #AA0000;
}
Thanks



Peace

Hello, perhaps supplement the CSS: My own simple ideas ...

Code: Select all

.forum_unread a.forumtitle {color: #AA0000; font-style: italic; }

Code: Select all

.topic_unread a.topictitle {color: #AA0000; font-style: italic; }
and please test it also.

BTW: Normally the big icon changes from read to unread. It signals "Unread´s" and so you can jump directly (if you click this icon).

Thanks, the forum title becomes italic when there are unread treads, but not red, I can't get the red to work, but thanks for the help

phpBB-3.2.5

Strange, prosilver and *)all styles react here on my site conform (see pictures) and when I have read everything, the display switches correctly to read (phpBB-3.2.5-standard).

*)Because I added the CSS into the colours.css (prosilver(!). If I want to act differently in some colors, I edit the CSS into the respective design.

Some results:

If you want to cover all the types of topic like hot locked etc you need something like this

Code: Select all

.topic_unread a.topictitle, .topic_unread_mine a.topictitle, .topic_unread_hot a.topictitle, .topic_unread_hot_mine a.topictitle, .topic_unread_locked a.topictitle, .topic_unread_locked_mine a.topictitle {color: #AA0000; font-style: italic; }
EDIT
to cover all unreads

Code: Select all

.forum_unread a.forumtitle, .forum_unread_locked a.forumtitle, .forum_unread_subforum a.forumtitle, .global_unread a.topictitle, .global_unread_mine a.topictitle, .global_unread_locked a.topictitle, .global_unread_locked_mine a.topictitle, .announce_unread a.topictitle, .announce_unread_mine a.topictitle, .announce_unread_locked a.topictitle, .announce_unread_locked_mine a.topictitle, .sticky_unread a.topictitle, .sticky_unread_mine a.topictitle, .sticky_unread_locked a.topictitle, .sticky_unread_locked_mine a.topictitle, .topic_unread a.topictitle, .topic_unread_mine a.topictitle, .topic_unread_hot a.topictitle, .topic_unread_hot_mine a.topictitle, .topic_unread_locked a.topictitle, .topic_unread_locked_mine a.topictitle {color: #AA0000; font-style: italic; }

Right, but the ext/alex75/redtitlenewpost wrote some colors looks like --> color: #000c22
So I think -> may there be a different result?

If extension is overwriting it adding !important after color code should fix it :)
