Collapso styling

Post by a.g.r.c » Fri Mar 07, 2008 8:23 pm

Hi guys,

I have been struggling with customising Collapso. Installation was fine, however I am looking at the collapso5 standard style sheet and styling just isn't taking effect.

The changes I want to make are;

Different colour backgrounds on all hyperlink states. For them to be displayed as a rectangle always. Exactly like the coloured list from the demo on http://www.drillpine.biz/v8collapso5/

Thats the only issue really, any changes i make are not taking effect and the stylesheet seems very unclear as its not commented.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks in advance.

Collapso come with 3 different stylesheets. You select the appropriate one via Settings / Site Options / Layout / Site / Collapso Style.

Have you done this? You should select collapso-5-RolloverBoxes.css and try editing that. I'm not a CSS expert so cannot help too much there.

Hi there again Norman,

Thanks for your reply it helped and led me to run to the demo page of collapso, steal the stylesheet links and modify it to suit. So all that went swimmingly and hope you dont mind.

However I have stumbled into a real pain. The styling is working fine with I.E or just not working with FF whatever way you want to look at it. I have done the usual alternate style sheet fix

Code: Select all

<!--[if IE]>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="collapso-5-RolloverBoxes.css" />
<![endif]--><![if !IE]>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="ffcollapso-5-RolloverBoxes.css" />
<![endif]>
However i dont know if this is an Actinic problem or a collapso one, it just wont select the Firefox one when appropriate. I have the stylesheets in both the root folder and the preview page.

Any ideas on this, the problem is the collapso div is appearing way larger than specified in Firefox than I have told it to.

Thanks

As I said, I'm not a CSS specialist. In fact, I've never used conditional styleshhets so unfortunately cannot help on this.

However you may be seeing an Actinic issue whereby the comment tags are being stripped, thus breaking what you're trying to do.

I'm pretty sure there are posts on the Actinic community re Conditional Comments. Try searching there for these terms and you'll find some workarounds.
