  1. Good Day, First, I hate cboxes, but the site owner wants one so there we go 😉 I have the cbox installed and have played with its width and height. I have the blocks layout set-up how we want them, but the cbox makes a mess on mobile devices. Below is the code I am using to set the blocks layout. Is there a better way to do it so that everything still works with mobile devices? Note: #block_12 is the cbox. Site URL: https://mpiw-rpg.com #block_6, #block_7, #block_9 { max-height: 250px; overflow: auto;} #block_3, #block_10, #block_12 { flex: 1 1 100%; }

    Image Removal ?

    Good Day, I have a gallery album set up in my World Building coterie. There are several images that now show blank with a title of Recovered Download. To get this removed, do I just report each image? Thanks lots!
  3. Hello There! This is a minor thing I found in our custom theme on Aereth (Dragonheart). The Move button does not work (at least on my computer and I confess, I did not check it in other browsers). I needed to move some posts to new forums and when I clicked it, nothing happened at all. So, I switched to Eros and it worked just fine there. Again, this is not a major issue since there is a work-around and we don't move posts alot. Thanks and Hugs ~ StormMom
  4. @Arceus I have installed Gaia successfully with not even a hiccup! I am so excited! I do have a question though... How do I do what I need to do to move the URL to https: instead of http: ?? I know! Very basic Village Idiot question, but it's not something I've ever had to do. Current URL = http://aereth.com/ Thanks much!
  5. Hi and Happy Holidays! Yes, I broke it somehow - again. I was cleaning up a forum in preparation for Aereth's soft launch in 2 weeks. Go Me! I was deleting old, no longer needed posts and have one that won't go away although it seems like it might be semi-deleted. The forum is the Dew Drop In under the Welcome Center section at the top of the site. The topic that won't go away is Progress Updates (see screenshot). Is there anyway that it can be removed? I am having the same issues with removing a User Group (it is currently named Not Used). I have decided to just go with Vesta's built-in user groups for now. I don't see that more are needed. Thanks!
  6. Heya! First, if you want support questions put into the main coding and support forum, please let me know. I can't keep what goes where as far as Vesta help questions go. When editing or creating a post, links that are added into the editing window show as a very dark purple. I cannot see them at all to verify spelling, etc. Is there a way to change the editor window link color? I tried firebugging it and got nowhere. Any lighter color that's distinct from the rest of the normal text would work! Thanks!
  7. Good Day! Help me! LOL (This topic might wind up moved to a different forum. I couldn't decide on a home for it.) So, I may have mentioned once or a hundred times that I am working on the revival of my sword and sorcery RPG. It ran for many years and then we ran into a wall with plots. Nothing horrible, just had vital peeps have to leave and whatnot. The core group is still together and still planning on being together for the re-opening. I have engaged (begged, pleaded, whined, and wheedled) someone to do a custom theme for us. This means I need to give them some design ideas. The site's timeline is somewhere between medieval and Renaissance in *feel*. It's not Earth so exacts do not apply. There are intelligent dragons, an Elvish sort of people, humans, and other things. We're limiting weapons to pre-gun tech (swords, bows, crossbows, war-hammers, what-have-you). Now - I am kind of hidebound. I like dark sites. Part of that is because my eyes just can't see shades of gray on white anymore. The glare is also painful when the background is stark white. I also have members that have issues reading text on any kind of a light site. We'll offer a light variant, but the default will be dark. Here's where I need the input, help, some ideas.... While keeping the overall dark backgrounds, I would like to get input on how to get a really great Medieval/Renaissance Magical feel.
  8. Good Day! Question: Is it possible to make the reactions list collapse like the ones here on IPS? Thanks!
  9. URL: https://aereth.com/ I am having a bit of an issue with getting my header image to fit and display properly on all devices. Amongst my many tech failings, I am barely at apprentice level when it comes to site graphics. LOL Consider me the tech Village Idiot. I promise I won't be offended. Details: I created a header based on the one that ships with Gaia. In fact, I named my file the same. Per the dimensions of the default header image, I made mine 1630 x 252. My main computer is a 15" MacBook Pro, my secondary device is an iPad Air. On my laptop, the image starts to repeat, on my iPad, it is cut-off. I use Chrome on both devices. When I set the image for no-repeat, it will not display at all. Other Changes: Reset the wrapper width to 90%. I can upload a zip of the PSD or the finished png if you need it. What am I doing wrong? Any and all help is much appreciated.
  10. Looking for some opinions on the subject. My website is currently based in SMF but I'm perhaps looking towards switching to MyBB... What are the pros and cons of both?
  11. This is a bit of a strange one. I have been working on skin edits on a test site, before using the finished version on the site I'm going to be using it on. But curiosity got the better of me and I installed it on the other site, to start tinkering with the final touches etc and to just see it on there really. But when I imported the xml file, for some reason there is now no sidebar at all. It is just gone completely. Any help on why this is happening and how to fix it would be so appreciated. I'm lost. Again . -weeps-
  12. Hey, Initiative! I need help trying to make easy-to-use post templates using MyCode. I would like to offer some simple and easy post templates for my upcoming rp but I don't want to deal with having to walk members through using DoHTML on MyBB, which can be tricky and overcrowded. So I was wondering whether MyCode could be used in the same vein of Jcink's custom BBCode feature. These are the two code's I've made that I would like to make into BBCode post templates: <div class="post1a"><div class="post1b">look, a post template!</div></div> <div class="genre"><table style="margin: 60px auto 30px auto; cellpadding: 0px; cellspacing: 0px;"><tr><td valign="top"><div class="post2a"><div class="post2b"> look! another post template! </div></div></td><td valign="top"> <div class="post2c"><div class="post2d" style="background-image: url(IMAGEHERE);"> </div></div></td></tr></table></div>
  13. Hey guys! So i've got a roleplay forum and i used a postbit code from here but its not showing relative fields. Postbit code: <div class="pbhover" style="background:{$post['fid14']};"> <img src="{$post['fid12']}" style="padding:3px; border:1px solid {$post['fid15']};"><br> <div class="pbusertitle" style="color:{$usergroup['gid']};">{$post['usertitle']}</div> <div class="pbb" style="border-bottom:1px solid {$post['fid15']};"></div> <div class="pbcontent" style="color:{$post['fid17']};"> <b>Irkı:</b> {$post['fid19']}<br> <b>Tarafı:</b> {$post['fid13']}<br> <b>Krallığı</b> {$post['fid20']}<br> <b>Yaşı:</b> {$post['fid11']}<br> <b>Partneri:</b> {$post['fid23']}<br> </div> <div class="pbb" style="border-bottom:1px solid {$post['fid15']};"></div> <div class="pbcontent" style="color:{$post['fid17']};"> <b>Karakter Sahibi:</b> {$post['fid21']}<br> <b>Renk Kodu:</b> {$post['fid11']}<br> </div> <div class="pbb" style="border-bottom:1px solid {$post['fid15']};"></div> <table width="160"> <tr> <td valign="top"> <div class="pbposts" style="background:{$post['fid15']};color:{$post['fid14']};"><br>Lethal Love</div> </td> <td valign="top"> <div class="pbquote" style="color:{$post['fid17']};"> {$post['fid18']}<span style="font-family:serif;font-size:50px;float:right;padding-top:15px;">&rdquo;</span> </div> </td> </tr> </table> </div>
  14. My board is here. So, I'm looking to make my site's skin more accessible, and part of this includes a new tab system. What I'm attempting to do (following this tutorial) and have mostly succeeded with is allowing people to tab through the tabs (hah) and use enter key to switch to a tab. I'm also looking to let the user use their arrow keys to automatically switch through the tabs as well. Tab/enter key works fine, but the second I try to use the arrow key method is where the code is going haywire. If I use the arrow keys, it appears as if all the tabs are selected except the one that was navigated away from. The "focused" tab then becomes the last tab in the list, and the displayed content becomes the first tab. Needless to say it's not doing what it's supposed to, and I'm unsure of how to fix it. On the tutorial linked above, you can see that using the arrow keys automatically switches between the tabs as intended (or seems to, there's only two tabs there, compared to my 5-6) Here's the js I'm using: <script> $(document).ready(function(){ $("#sidebar li[role='tab']").click(function(){ $("#sidebar li[role='tab']:not(this)").attr("aria-selected","false"); //$("#sidebar li[role='tab']").attr("tabindex","-1"); $(this).attr("aria-selected","true"); //$(this).attr("tabindex","0"); var tabpanid= $(this).attr("aria-controls"); var tabpan = $("#"+tabpanid); $("#sidebar div[role='tabpanel']:not(tabpan)").attr("aria-hidden","true"); $("#sidebar div[role='tabpanel']:not(tabpan)").addClass("hidden"); tabpan.removeClass("hidden"); //tabpan.className = "panel"; tabpan.attr("aria-hidden","false"); }); //This adds keyboard accessibility by adding the enter key to the basic click event. $("#sidebar li[role='tab']").keydown(function(ev) { if (ev.which ==13) { $(this).click(); } }); //This adds keyboard function that pressing an arrow left or arrow right from the tabs toggel the tabs. $("#sidebar li[role='tab']").keydown(function(ev) { if ((ev.which ==39)||(ev.which ==37)) { var selected= $(this).attr("aria-selected"); if (selected =="true"){ $("#sidebar li[aria-selected='false']").attr("aria-selected","true").focus() ; $(this).attr("aria-selected","false"); var tabpanid= $("#sidebar li[aria-selected='true']").attr("aria-controls"); var tabpan = $("#"+tabpanid); $("#sidebar div[role='tabpanel']:not(tabpan)").attr("aria-hidden","true"); $("#sidebar div[role='tabpanel']:not(tabpan)").addClass("hidden"); tabpan.attr("aria-hidden","false"); tabpan.removeClass("hidden"); //tabpan.className = "panel"; } } }); }); </script> My tab css: ul.controlList { list-style-type: none; } li[aria-selected='true'] {} .panel[aria-hidden='true'] { display: none; } .panel[aria-hidden='false'] { display:block; } .hidden {display:none;} .tablist { list-style: none outside none; margin: 0px; padding: 0px; display: block; background-color: #080808; border-bottom: 2px solid #1e2733; border-top: 3px solid #252d34; text-align: center; } .tabs { background-color: transparent; padding: 5px; } .tab { display: inline; border-bottom: none; cursor: pointer; padding: 0 4px; font-family: georgia, times, serif; text-transform: uppercase; color: #5b656d; } .tab:focus, .tab:active, .tab[aria-selected='true'] { color: #374C5D; cursor:default; } .panel { background-color: #121212; padding: 5px; clear:both; } and the tab html: <aside id="sidebar" role="complementary"> <ul class="tablist" role="tablist"> <li id="tab1" class="tab" aria-controls="panel1" role="tab" aria-selected="true" tabindex="0">Welcome</li> <li id="tab2" class="tab" aria-controls="panel2" role="tab" aria-selected="false" tabindex="0">Links</li> <li id="tab3" class="tab" aria-controls="panel3" role="tab" aria-selected="false" tabindex="0">Chat</li> <li id="tab4" class="tab" aria-controls="panel4" role="tab" aria-selected="false" tabindex="0">Staff</li> <li id="tab5" class="tab" aria-controls="panel5" role="tab" aria-selected="false" tabindex="0">©</li> </ul> <div class="tabs"> <div id="panel1" class="panel" aria-labelledby="tab1" role="tabpanel" aria-hidden="false"><% WELCOME %></div> <div id="panel2" class="panel" aria-labelledby="tab2" role="tabpanel" aria-hidden="true"><div class="sidelink"><% LINKS %></div></div> <div id="panel3" class="panel" aria-labelledby="tab3" role="tabpanel" aria-hidden="true"><% CHAT %></div> <div id="panel4" class="panel" aria-labelledby="tab4" role="tabpanel" aria-hidden="true"><% STAFF %></div> <div id="panel5" class="panel" aria-labelledby="tab5" role="tabpanel" aria-hidden="true"><% CREDITS %></div> </div> </aside> Any help with this would be appreciated!
  15. I may be putting this topic in the wrong place. If so, am sure Morrigan will tell me to move it. Here's a little background: In the past, as a Game Manager/Admin, I have had nightmare players slip through the chinks in my character applications/bios. By that, I mean suddenly adding all kinds of things not accounted for in the bio (powers, skills, abilities, etc). When taken to task over it and told to rewrite, there is an all-out fight because the bio/app did not ask for that information. As a result, I have gone the paranoid Admin route and tried to cover everything in my bio forms. I am upgrading my three RPG sites and want to revamp my character applications/bios to be as minimalist as possible without shorting the information needed and without leaving us open to truly major issues. Each site is different: American Wild West (1870s), Modern Cinematic Real Life Action Adventure/Mystery, Swords and Sorcery Fantasy (I know I will have to keep some info on magical powers in the bios). Please provide suggestions and feedback. I really need help! I know my current bios are too long and involved and out-of-date. However, please, please, give me ideas, suggestions, and feedback without the I hate applications side of things. I know there are players that simply loathe doing apps. I am never going to eliminate them completely. I do sincerely want to make changes though. Help me! Below is what I consider to be a bare minimum, but if I can shave more off it by maybe expanding character rules or something, hit me with it! Here's my rough draft / revisable minimum list of information fields. Basic Stats / Information Relationship Status Appearance stats (height, hair, eyes because the playby might vary slightly from the character). Short fields for job info, etc. Skills, Abilities (fantasy / magic site) Personality: Need most detail here. Background: Relevant family, friends, foes; timeline of major life events. Here is an example of what I have now for the action/adventure: Bio Template (it's similar to the western). Thank you all!
  16. This is not urgent! I have installed the IPS Character Mod on the smaller (newest) of my two IPS sites. I want to get everything working right before I tackle the larger site as it'll require more account conversions and post author changes. The mod installed smoothly and appears to be working perfectly! Here comes the How Do I part. We currently have a beautiful Character Directory with long and rather detailed bios [Link to Example] thanks to the lovely and awesome @Morrigan. However, I do want to take full advantage of the mod. Is there a way to make the profiles look more like our current bios but still keep the simple, easy to fill out forms? Right now, there is alot of copy/paste from a template that has all the fields into the actual character bio. Just an idea of what I'm trying to ask... Also, if there's a better way of integrating it all with our character pages, I'm all for that too. The second question is likely just a case of styling the mini-profiles (author panes/user info)... Here is the user info / mini-profile using the new Character Mod.... Can the layout be adjusted to be more like this (hopefully this is just a case of adding custom CSS).... although, ideally, would like to redo our avatars to portrait style (ex. 250x300 or 200x300). Any and all help for this poor tech-challenged person is appreciated!
  17. Even after adding the custom BBcode for posting youtube videos to this site for some reason, no matter the browser, they do not show up on it. How do I fix this? Also, as certain other things do not show, such as, for example, posts pinned as announcements. I am wondering whether it is actually a glitch or something within the skin itself making this happen? I have no idea what to do to solve this. Can anyone help/advise?
  18. Hi! My members and I have noticed that the back button on both Chrome & Firefox (not sure about other browsers) doesn't work when you're on Nightborn. Anyone have any idea what might be causing this and/or how to fix it? My other question is, is it possible to hide posts from the advertising forum from the "Recent topic activity" that shows up at the bottom of the forum?
  19. Currently using a search customization by Shinka (or Shin) and trying to add in a dateline option for date cut off. Unsure of where to go now as I've tried everything I can think of and still get no where. <form method="post" action="search.php?action=do_search"> <input type="hidden" name="threadprefix[]" value="1" /> <input type="hidden" name="findthreadst" value="2" /> <input type="hidden" name="numreplies" value="3" /> <input type="hidden" name="showresults" value="threads" /> <input type="hidden" name="sortby" value="lastpost" /> <input type="submit" class="button" name="submit" value="Open Threads" /> </form> I am trying to add in <input type="hidden" name="postdate" value="30" /> In reference to this in the search template <select name="postdate"> <option value="0">{$lang->find_anydate}</option> <option value="1">{$lang->find_yesterday}</option> <option value="7">{$lang->find_lastweek}</option> <option value="14">{$lang->find_2weeks}</option> <option value="30">{$lang->find_month}</option> <option value="90">{$lang->find_3months}</option> <option value="180">{$lang->find_6months}</option> <option value="365">{$lang->find_year}</option> </select> Value = 30 being a month back or newer (not older). I'm just... struggling. Help would be lovely. ❤️
  20. @Arceus Help me Obi Wan SMF-Kenobi! And...as the site is not yet live, there is no rush on this. I enabled the Character Mod on Chronicles of Aereth which may have nothing to do with the error I am now receiving! I tried to start a New Topic in the Test Board forum and received the white screen of death. I then disabled the mod to see if that might have caused it somehow since I do not have any characters set up and am still receiving the error. Again, one might have absolutely nothing to do with the other. This is the error I receive... I know this is a generic error, but not sure how to isolate it's source on SMF. The only other thing I did was enable the calendar (prior to enabling the Character Mod). Thank you for any and all help!
  21. The topics in each individual forum are all shoved to one side, lacking any formatting. I'm trying to haphazardly teach myself how to code and because of that, have no idea what I did. Link to site: http://pernunbound.jcink.net/index.php?act=idx Screen shot: Let me know if you need anything else. I'm absolutely clueless.
  22. When I go to use the login pop up box, for some reason, instead of the background dimming and the box appearing in the center of the screen, it scrolls down to the bottom of the board and appears on the left hand side. It's definitely something wonky with my theme (cause I checked it out on the default MyBB theme, and everything's working properly) but I can't figure it out! https://menagerie.rpginit.com/index.php
  23. Hello, lovelies! I need some help getting my new phpbb board off the ground, customizing just the mini-profiles section. What I am trying to do is have two sets of avatars: 120 x 120 on the member list and as the last post icon. 450 x 250 on the member profile, not visible anywhere else. http://blacksunrising.org/forum Has anyone out there done this kind of work on a forum before? Mandie
  24. I know I'm making this about 20 times harder than it needs to be because I didn't originally code this skin with mobile devices in mind. This skin has been... 2? years in the making. Ahah. I always told myself I'd get around to looking into mobile-specific stuff "in a few more days" or "once this piece of code is finished." And now the entire skin is pretty much done... Except for a more mobile-friendly version. lmao Sooo... Where do I even start? I have a basic media query (pointer:coarse because looking at the list of media queries for all the different devices out there scares me, so I figure I'd just target all touch-based devices to start off) and some very, very basic styles for my wrapper and sidebar to get them to span the entire width of the screen. And that's about as far as I've gotten because I am so lost as to what even makes a decent mobile design. (Like I've browsed the initiative a couple of times from my phone and went "o.o how do you do that? That looks so nice!" and that's really it) So, any advice or help with making this somewhat presentable on mobile devices would be loved. You can see my testing board here: https://kjsage.jcink.net/index.php?act=idx Links in the sidebar won't work because they're relative to BOE (which is linked in the welcome tab of the sidebar) I can share my wrappers and other code if needed, as well.
  25. @Kit the Human If this is not the appropriate place to request help / support for this theme, please tell me where to go! Seriously, I looked all over the site where I found this theme and was not sure which of the many forums to post this in. Also, if this is the wrong place to ask for help with this theme on this board, please move it - or if I need to separate out the bits I need help with into different posts, please let me know. I'll copy, paste, and edit as needed. I also want to express my sincere and deep appreciation for any and all assistance. By the way, I am coding clueless - treat me like the JCINK Village Idiot. First and foremost, the theme is amazing. I'm hoping to use it for two JCINK sites (one mine, one for a friend). It offers everything, the code was easy to install and seems to work right out of the box. All I need to do is modify images and colors. And, I so love IPS. Unfortunately, I cannot afford a 3rd IPS site right now. Except - I think I've broken something! Theme Name: Pages [Link] My JCINK Dev Site [Link] I successfully installed the theme with some documentation assistance. Seriously, my learning curve has flatlined. There are two three on my site that I have been unable to resolve. I think I broke something. Sidebar Avatar & Chat I am not sure how it is supposed to display since I cannot login in at the site where the Pages theme is previewed. I have attempted to change the settings in the wrapper and stylesheet which did not work. The only thing that allowed the avatar to display correctly was removing the avatar's sideboard code completely which I'm sure breaks something somewhere else 😉 I am not wedded to having an image there although it would be nice to have. From what I can find by firebugging the Pages theme preview site, the avatars are set at 250 x 400 (which I like). Right now I have a temporary Cbox in the sidebar just like the Preview site. I would love to change that out to a Discord WidgetBot. Any idea if that would work? If not, could JCINK's native (built-in) Shoutbox go here? And how would I do that? Profile Display (screenshots at bottom) This one is hard to explain in words since I am not conversant with the terminology. I am viewing everything using Chrome with page zoom at 100%. Any smaller and I cannot read the text even with glasses. The Pages preview site shows the basic profile information beside the avatar (excellent layout). This was one of the reasons I chose this theme over others. However, my site shows the Message, Tracker, Shipper beneath the avatar. It appears as if somewhere, somehow, my board width may have gotten garbaged. I have not tackled trying to change board width settings or font sizes yet because I am afraid. Next, I would actually like to move things around (see screenshots at the bottom) on the profile. If possible, I'd love to move the tabbed character bio to where the basic profile information is and move the profile info to where the character tabbed bio currently displays. Basically, I'd love to have the profile layout show similar to this link. Note: I will likely have to add a couple of tabs to the bio (I even know how to do that) 😉 Both my site and the one I am trying to modify this theme for uses fairly extensive bios but we do not use plotters, shippers or trackers right now. The below screenshots hopefully give further explanation of my issues with the theme code. I am sure the issues are mine and not the code's. My site showing the profile layout. Note how the layout differs from the original theme's preview site (next screenshot). Preview Site with the changes I would love to get help implementing.
