Nod.. I'm sitting here grinning like a fool thinking to myself..

I love it when a plan comes together..


After you made the suggestion, I was hellbent on figuring it out.  I think it looks much better  Thanks for the idea.

Thats cool, but here's a question..how do you do it, if you aren'tusing CSS?  we are using our own background, but when I goto whereyou guys say..it's blank in the Custom Stylesheet..any thoughts? lol

What I did, and what I suggest, is to get the page colors, etc, how you want it under the Styles & Colors section of the Control Panel.  From there, go to your webpage and look at the Source Code (under the View menu as Page Source in Firefox).  Copy all of the CSS (not everything that shows up, but just the CSS part.  Paste that code into the Custom CSS section of the control panel and click enable.  This should keep the page exactly how you want it.  From there, you can modify the specific parts you want.  For me to get the tranparent login bar I followed Szleynix's instructions from there.  I first modified the .ContentBoxBody section to show no background (what I wanted for the login bar), like this:

.ContentBoxBody {
BACKGROUND-COLOR: none;
COLOR: #ffffff;
PADDING-LEFT: 5px;
PADDING-RIGHT: 5px;
FONT-SIZE: 9pt;
FONT-FAMILY: Helvetica;
}


Then, I added this section.  The only difference in this code was the background color and the title of the section.  This code made it so all the content boxes other than the login bar had the background I wanted


#ContentTable .ContentBoxBody {
BACKGROUND-COLOR: #ffffff;
COLOR: #000000;
PADDING-LEFT: 5px;
PADDING-RIGHT: 5px;
FONT-SIZE: 9pt;
FONT-FAMILY: Helvetica;
}

I'm not sure if that is what you were asking for specifically.  If not, let me know

Thanks again to Szleynix for the help on figuring this out

okay i think i figured out my problem..cause when I do that, it getsrid of certain things..and i think its because atm, we are using somethings from a "submit theme". So I'm giving up, I don't need to getover frustrated on something that isn't THAT big of a deal..but when Ido want to go back and tackle it, at least I'll have a MUCH better ideahow to do it..thanks.

Yeah, I didn't use a submitted theme.  I didn't even think how that might affect things.

Added that example to the GPwiki -- main page -> Tips & Tricks -> Custom Style Sheet -> Content Box Styles -> ContentBoxBody

NOTE:  If you have the .ContentBox object in your CSS, it will override the background-color attribute in the ContentBoxBody object.
