Becoming Adept!

I have more pages of notes from this site on how to do things... /facedesk

Here is my site: http://www.guildportal.com/Guild.aspx?GuildID=342141&TabID=3012409


I want to make the text of the recruitment box, the content box titles, the nav bar and the "upper nav bar" - Welcome.... bold and for the entire site.


When I hover on any of the recruit box titles, it shows the "needed" message, i.e. Death Knight (Tanks.) From the notes Mottie provided there should be a link to an application page ("http://recruitme.com") but how do I generate that page? I've looked at the widget list to the point my eyes are crossed. Is this the link used for each member to set up their guildportal account (if not, where is that?) Or to a specific page for the guild? I have a list of yes/no or fill in the blank questions I would prefer to use, (use the free text/HTML box and do a basic form? I can do that.) Or if that isn't possible can I link the recruit box to our rules page and add a email link where I am sent a message affirming the applicant has read the rules?

Note: I could never get the box title (recruitTitle) to disappear, no matter what I tried. Leaving it blank generates a title of "undefined" and removing the line of code ruins the whole box.

I much prefer this version: http://coupdeetat.guildportal.com/Guild.aspx?GuildID=330723&TabID=2769429, where can I find the code?

The same person created a divider (http://guildportal.com/Guild.aspx?GuildID=258012&TabID=2168224&ForumID=1233963&TopicID=8626718&Page=1#42550126) and while the CSS is simple, what do I put in the text to get the divider inserted?

Please help or I shall progress from mad to completely insane...

Hi Arahila!

Well, to answer your questions:
  1. Hmm, I thought you could make your widget titles bold from the control panel... I guess not. But don't fear, you can add custom CSS to do it. Add the following to your CSS Additions tab (Control Panel > Custom HTML & Script > Custom CSS > CSS Additions to Standard tab). When done, check the "Enabled" box, then click [ Save Changes]

    .ContentBoxTitle { font-weight: bold }

  2. If you want to use the recruit box I see on your site homepage, I don't think it has a link to your application page... well I added the link to point to a forum post with information about joining. If you want them to actually fill out a form, you could have them join the web site (which has the option to add questions - Control Panel > Member Management > Application Questions) and in this case you could add a link directly to the join the site application form. Replace the "######" in red with your GuildID which can be found in your site URL.

    http://www.guildportal.com/ContentControls/Support/FillApp2.aspx?GuildID=######

  3. If you want to use the other recruitment widget, go to this post and hopefully the instructions are clear enough. Please feel free to post any questions there - it'll help me fix the instructions if any part of it is confusing.

  4. If you want to add that divider to your news section. Add the CSS found in that post into the CSS Additions to Standard area (see answer #1 above on how to get to it).
I hope that helps!

Thanks so much, Mottie! My brain is mush from hunting through all the CSS. I have one more question about the tab bar. The side bar used at this site: http://kwl.guildportal.com/Guild.aspx?GuildID=169873&TabID=1438087

is what I would like to do depending on how the homepage shapes up. I went through all 4? of the tab how-to's and got very confused, I am not sure just what code to copy and use.

Hi Arahila!

Are you talking about the Guild Information box in the side bar? That is actually an "Info Sections" type widget. If you want to move the tab bar into the side bar, then you can change the navigation type in the control panel (Control Panel > Style Tools > Navigation Type) then pick "Content Box - XX Side". It'll do everything automatically.
