Hey Vodoobanshee,

I've started just putting all of the code into a free form text/HTML content box. It's easier to have all the code together for posting, but if you want you can add the CSS into your custom stylesheet. But the reason I stopped telling people this is because if you don't already have a custom stylesheet and you're using the built in GuildPortal theme selector/editor, adding a custom stylesheet will ignore all your choices through the editor.

When you paste script, CSS or HTML into a free form text/HTML box, make sure you're in edit mode () or you right click and use the "Paste as Html" option.


If you want to paste javascript into a forum post, you must colorize the word "script". I've also recently found that any instances of "" will also be hidden if it's in the script. So basically just colorize it (I'll use blue below to show you what I do)... see the example below:
blah blah blah
document.write (blah);
I hope that helps!

I fixed an error in the searchbox javascript and updated it on my GuildPortal file site. It was causing the built-in GuildPortal tooltips to not work if you had a search box on that page.

There is no need to do anything if you copied the Search Box script as it is in the top post. If you copied the search box script file (searchbox.js) that was referenced in the last line of the script to your own site, then update it with this version.
