  • Style Guide? Which paramater controls the highlight in the WYSIWYG?

    I purchased vBulletin last night have been setting it up ever since.

    Is there any guide (like a key with pointers to sections) that tells
    you which paramaters in the style manager effect which area?


    Some of them are obvious, but I find myself saving, going to a second
    browser, and refressing a lot to see what I just did. (Or maybe there's
    a faster way to preview your changes?)

    Specifically, I'm stuck trying to find out which paramater controls the text highlight when you are in the WYSIWYG. Currently, The background and highlight are the same color so you can't see when something is highlighted.

    I have just been making changes to the default style (in a new style I
    created as a sub style)... basically just changing the colors so users
    have the default blue choice and a silver/black choice. I'm
    wondering if I did something wrong here, because you always get a
    glimpse of the blue before the forum pages load in thier prober sub
    style... Is that just the nature of making the sub-styles?

    FORUM QUESTION: Since I made this username/password for this
    forum (vBulletin Community) BEFORE I purchased, do I have to create a
    new one that is linked with my customer number? Or is there a way for
    me to do something that lets me post in the actual customer areas?


    Thanks!

    EDIT: Ooops... for future keyword searching, a mod might want to fix my spelling in the Subject Title... Sorry ... And still... every time I edit a post, tons of paragraph breaks are added.

      Thanks! Just got that taken care of...

      I guess we can move this over to the "How do I?" section now.


      P.S. I'm using 3.0.7

        Here is the online documentation for styles and templates:

        http://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/styles_and_templates

        And here are color maps for vB3 in the online manual:

        Hopefully this will be enough to get you started.

          Sheesh! Color maps! I knew they had to be somewhere... lol, I skipped over that thinking it was going to tell me about html #COLOR codes.


          Thanks...

          Oh... Anything on why you see a glimpse of the parent style when you load a page and the default is a sub style?

            OK, still no clue on the highlighting text on the page (and in the WYSYWIG)...

            I searched for highlight in the style manager page, and there is only"Highlight Font" for searched text... and "Pop up menu Highlight"... which works fine on the pop ups... but I still can't figure out what controls the text highlighting (i.e. when you drag you mouse over a group of text to copy/paste).

            I think it is still on the default... this forum has the same gray highlight that I'm trying to get rid of... since it happens to be my background color.

            Any one know the correct field to change this?

            Thanks again.

                This make sense? Maybe I'm not using the right terminology.

                  OK... Problem solved...

                  This is an OS function. My OS X highlights are set to silver. i would imagine that there is no way to force a web page to set this paramater...

                  I was really trying everything there for a while...
