Bolitash (Guild Admin) 5/15/2008 4:45 PM EST : CSS content color changes?

I was looking for confirmation on if anyone else had a color change with their site tonight.  The CSS coloring for our content boxes is not working! and now our site is all black (the back ground color.  

Halp?  (and/or put in support ticket)

Yeah, my entire site (epignosis.guildportal.com) seems to be completely non-functional due to some change beyond my doing in the recent past.  All text is illegible and our forums have become completely unusable.  I hate having to always come here to these forums every week or so to report yet another issue, but there is currently no value to the service if it appears as it does and changes with error as frequently.

I will put in a support ticket for this too I suppose.

EDIT: I can't even put a support ticket, as the page takes me to a blank white screen.  Kudos.

Odd, I have two sites, one with a dark background and one with a light background. Both are functioning normally. And with the recent code update, my calendar text is legible on my dark background now.

Using IE7 and Win XP. Using Custom CSS.

Edit: The Calendar itself is using the background color designated in Control Panel, Styles and Colors, Content Boxes, Main Box Body Area, Background Color, regardless of what I have under .ContentBox or .ContentBoxBody . Maybe that is impacting your sites as well?

If no background-color is loaded in the Control panel, it will show up black, regardless of CSS being enabled. If a color is in there, it will go by that color, even if CSS has a different color setting and/or background image.

My forums all show up with the Background Image, unlike the Calendar. If you are not using an image, that setting may be messing with your Forum's background.

It would be nice to have a Class for the Calendar background that is independent of the other boxes, so you could customize it with an image or a slightly different color if you choose. I kind of like how it stands out from the rest of the page by not using the background image, like it displays now. Although I'd rather it have it's own setting. Perhaps they aren't completely finished with updating that section yet.

The recent improvements to the calendar as far as blending the event pages into the rest of the site are very positive, and I for one am glad to see the calendar get some attention.  Looking at the source, I think we can safely say the developers are not done working on the monthly calendar just yet.

I agree with Everdark, it would really REALLY be nice to have classes for everything on the event pages including the calendar elements, similar to the ones we used to have.  Thanks for all the good changes, GP.

I'll check at work on another machine.. Right now. MACOS-X, Safari (yes. i know.. i need to download fire fox)

I updated our CSS to have a white background, so in the meantime it sort of is back to normal (other than the brightness).  We haven't used the GP calendar in quite some time.   It could be interesting tinkering with it again.  Were the code pushes just aesthetic?  We schedule a lot with allies, and found we couldn't use it reliably for that... 


edit: add.. on PC, visibly the same.  going to do only a little bit of digging and see if the tags have changed any w/ the update.

I'm having the same issues here with the CSS on our Background (image is missing) and Content containers (background color is missing & the custom settings for size and padding aren't working). All of these were working last night as of 10pm EST, so I assume it has to do with the tweaking that went in with last night's push.

I've checked on a PC (IE & Firefox) and a Mac (Safari & Firefox) and it seems to be having the exact same issue despite browser and OS. Ms_Ashling, what's your GP site? Maybe comparing our two problems we can figure out what's the cause. Mine is Clan Steinhammer.

I appreciate that Guild Portal is trying to add in features and functionality, but I am tired of having to fix issues ever week or two. If this cycle of fixing and breaking continues I will be taking my business elsewhere, which is a shame since I've always loved the combination of functionality and customization that Guild Portal has offered.

Your Quest Log Is Full

In the sig.  I think the big notice on mine was the background showing through, meaning the css for the left, middle, and right content boxes weren't loading..

I'm currently picking random sites and checking their source to see if I can't find any of the
.content     tags.

I would love it, if any of the guild hosting sites would lay out that list.. so much easier than digging, now that I can read some of it 

I wonder what the one for
.footerarea is.. I can't find one that works...

edit- the css code for background did work for my site.  i was able to change the color which helped with legibility & a lot of the graphics..  for the meantime..

Well, whatever this latest code push was, it has permanently broken my site when using Opera, and I won't use another browser so that it'll work.  I can't log in to it, I can't read anything on it, and it's basically in a state of no use.  If it's something that can't be fixed and I can't get a support ticket through (I still can't), I'll be canceling my subscription to this service, which is continually getting worse.
