  • [Forum] StyleVar settings are not showing

    I'm trying to make a new style however when I go to make changes in the Stylevar Variable Editor not all settings are showing up in the style, but they are being saved in the Stylevar Variable Editor. For example navbar_tab_selected_background will not make the change in the style but is saved in the editor. But at the same time I was able to save navbar_tab_background. So it is a random thing.

    I'm looking at the correct style, I know because I was working on this all afternoon and remember I had this same problem back in Aug 2010 with a different site running 4.0.5 at the time,
    http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showt...=1#post2023763

    I'm running vb4.1.11 and looking at the correct style that I'm trying to edit.

    Thanks,
    Tony

    If you navigate away from the Style Manager and back, is the change retained in the StyleVar?

      Hi,

      Yes the change is retained in the stylevar after I navigate away or even a different computer all together.

        I search the forum a little and came across the following threads with the same problem but nothing came of them other then editing the actually css and I'm not about to edit all these templates when we have the stylevars. From the following threads this problem goes back to 4.0.5 or maybe 4.0.2 I forgot now which. Also I have two vb forums and they both have the same problem.

            Can you please tell us the SPECIFIC steps you are taking, what you expect to happen, what does happen, and what should have happened?

            Are you saying when you save, no change actually happens? The browser doesn't update?

              Yes when I hit save the changes are not being made to the style at the forum front. In the stylevar editor I can see the change I have made, so they are being saved, they are not showing the the style, on the forum front. Sorry I wasn't and or not being clear, but I thought I was given the the links I posted.

              Here are some stylevars I'm having trouble with;
              Nav_right_background

              Nav_left_Background
              Blocksubhead_color
              Blocksubhead_background

              As to what I except to happen, If I change the color for stylevar Blocksubhead_color. I except the title/thread starter to change color. Title/thread starter is on the show thread page. With stylevar Blocksubhead_background I except the background color behind title/thread starter to change color.

              Nav_right_background and Nav_left_Background, I used round corners for these, a left and right. They appear fine in the in the little preview in the stylevar editor. But don't show in the style on the forum.

              Again I save the stylevar, changes are saved in the stylevar editor only. No changes are made for the style on the forum front.

              I hope you understand what I'm talking about because I don't know how to put it any other way.

              Thanks

                Do you have CSS set to save as files?

                        What do you mean is that a default stylevar? You know by default this stylevar is blank.

                            That isn't a default vBulletin stylevar. It's most likely from a third party product you've installed.

                            The area circled in red in your screenshot is not controlled by blocksubhead_ stylevars. It is controlled by the threadbithead_ stylevars in the Threadbit stylevar group.

                              StyleVar settings are not showing

                              You solved my problem, I didn't know the style var dictionary in the blog post was out dated. I thought the dictionary was updated as the stylevars changed.

                              Any chance of the dictionary being updated? It's so much easier to pick out the style var then searching through the stylevars.

                              Thank you
