Our pop up windows, meaning the new windows that open up when you click the "join guild" at the top and when you click on the "read more" of our news, are a terrible mess.  I cannot find where they are customizable at all.  I've searched the forums and found nothing.  I need to put our banner on there (for some reason it is not there, unlike every other page on our site) and also move the boxes or windows or whatever they are over to be centered and below our banner.  Right now they are at the very top of the page and to the left.  We had to turn our transparancies off because of this...with tranparancies on it was unreadable in the pop up windows because of the black background.  I don't understand why these pop up windows are not following the same rules as our other pages.  I am pretty frustrated.

Hi Margalo!

Which site are you talking about? I looked and couldn't find the popup window you are referring to... do you mean the info section popup? I have a post here on how to add styling to those popups. As for the banner on your application page, it's not there and there isn't an option to add it I don't think. All I can suggest is to submit a feature request.

Thanks Mottie!!  The website is wearetheguild.guildportal.com

Thanks so much for taking the time to read my post.  I will see if what you posted helps.  I am mostly concerned with the positioning of the pop up box, so hopefully I can fix it with the link you sent.  If the words in the banner are not fixable, well...I can live with that.

Okay forgive if I seem a little slow lol.  I don't know ANYTHING about scripts or codes or html, etc. 

So I pasted this into my custom css add additions to standard and I enabled it:

#lbltitle { padding-left: 40px; color: #00b0f0; }
#lblDetails { display: block; padding: 10px 40px; color: #ffffff;}

I changed it to padding-center and messed around with the colors but it didn't work.  Also, is the 10px 40px for the content in the box or the box itself?  In other words, if I change those will it position the top and bottom of the box in relation to the whole page (to move the box down to be under our header/banner)?  

I'm sure I am missing some kind of beginning and ending thing in that code, but I don't know...

Thanks Mottie!!

Hi Margalo!

Honestly, I'm not seeing any popups. When I click on the "Join this guild" link, it opens a new page in the same window. I also clicked on the News Archives and once again it showed the news (when I clicked on "read") in the same window. So, I apologize but I don't know what it is you need help with.

Maybe i am using the wrong word when I say pop ups.  I am talking about the new window that opens up when you click the join guild link at the top.  Before when we had our widgets transparent (which is what we want) when that new window opened up you couldn't read anything because that window is aligned to the left and all the way at the top.  We changed our widgets to opaque so you can read it.  I want to move that new window to centered and down below our header/banner area so the text doesn't get lost in the image and in the black when we have the widgets transparent.  I want the new window to open up and be lined up just like the rest of the content on our website.

Hi Margalo!

Sorry for not getting back to you on this but I did figure it out.
  • Go to Control Panel > Custom HTML & Script > Custom CSS > CSS Additions to Standard tab
  • Add this bit of css:

    #pnlQuestions { margin: 300px auto 0 auto; }
    #Form1, #ctl01 { background: url(http://www.axiomfiles.com/Files/346413/bannertransparent_textonly_sm1.png) center 10px no-repeat; }
    #ctl01 { padding-top: 300px; }

  • Adjust the top margin (in red) as desired, it will show the top part of the page. The margin and padding in red should be the same number.
  • The #Form1 bit of css adds your banner image back, just adjust the number in red to adjust how far down the image moves as needed - but I think I got it right 
Edit: Never mind, you can add your banner back using the css I added above!
Edit (2/19/2011): Added css to also fix the new user registration page.

Thanks Mottie!!  That totally worked for the banner and moving the window down below the banner!  Thanks so much...I am so almost where I want to be with this.  One more thing...how would I move the window a little more to the right?

Hi Margalo!

Sorry for taking so long, I've been busy. But I've updated the CSS in my last post to take care of your new user page as well
