CSS Fader Text 4 YaBB 2.4

This mod makes the fader text controlled by css. This way yor can have correct 'start color' and 'end color' for any template - light or dark.

The mod removes the 'News Fader Text Color' and 'News Fader Background Color' settings from Admin Center.

Apply the mod as usual. Then copy the code from the 'fadeCSS.txt' file and paste it in your .css file(s).

The css selector looks like this:
Code
Select All
/* News fader fore- and background colors */
.newsfader {
	color: #304B58;
	background-color: #FEFEFE;
	font-size: 10px;
	font-weight: normal;
	font-style: normal;
	font-family: Verdana, Sans-Serif;
	text-decoration: none;
} 



You can use any valid format for the 'background-color' and 'color' properties in the '.newsfader' selector.
On top of that you can set the font-size, font-weight, font-style, font-family and text-decoration properties.

I've just given this a quick test. Definitely a better way of doing it, especially for those who use multiple templates.

I have noticed something strange though. The font-size, font-weight, font-style and font-family don't seem to work when using the old 2.1 template. Only the background-color and color work. They work fine with the default template though. I've only tested it with the default and 2.1 templates, so don't know if it is a problem with others.

This is the CSS I tested it with:

Code
Select All
/* News fader fore- and background colors */
.newsfader {
	background-color: #ff0000;
	color: #ffff00;
	font-size: 15px;
	font-weight: bold;
	font-style: italic;
	font-family: Arial;
} 


This is how it looks in the default template:



And like this in the 2.1 template:



Tested with both Safari and FireFox.

Hopefully that will ease your blues for a while. Wink Smiley

There's a markup glitch in 'yabb21.html' - the 'div' with 'fscroller' id is added by js in the 'template subroutine:
Code
Select All
				<div id="fscroller" style="padding-top: 5px; padding-left: 20px; font-size: 12px;"><yabb news></div> 


should be:
Code
Select All
				<div style="padding-top: 5px; padding-left: 20px;"><yabb news></div>

Ah, right. I thought it was weird. It works fine with that removed anyway.

Thanks!

Maybe one suggestion for the future would be to add 'text-decoration' too?

Great. Thanks Carsten!

All seems good my end.

One very minor thing with Safari is that 'overline underline' doesn't work, but that really is no biggy anyway.

Hmm - did'nt see that one coming. Caused by a small oddity in the way Safari handles multiple parameters in css properties in js.

Fixed and new zip attached to first post. Good catch Derek.

Cool! I wasn't expecting that to be fixable.

Works great now. Thank you!
