How to change color and close the question?

This discussion is related to the Q&A addon.

I am using Q&A version 1.2.1 and I want that if the questioner or the moderator or administrator accept a answer as right answer then the background color of that accepted answer should change to something we specified like green and also the question get closed automatically, so that no new answer can be provided to that question.
Anyone knows please help !!

  • change the color with css and class probably. use your web inspector.

    the counter probably needs to be incremented by 1 in the plugin.

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

  • I incremented as mentioned in a post from -1 to 0 and it worked but after this if I click vote up or down then it result in blank browser with only writted TRUE

  • what post are you referring to, or should we guess.

  • Sorry I got confused

    it happens.

    so is your question about voting plugin, if so, start a new discussion under the voting plugin.

  • Okay, I will start new topic in voting module. But please answer this question how to change color and close the question automatically if a answer to a question is accepted..

  • do you know how to use your web-developer tools, if not see the tutorials on the web

    also css tutorials.

    .Item.QnA-Item-Accepted {
    bacground-color: green;
    }
    

    you would need to write a plugin to close it automatically, or hire @minion. or @schwiapbot

    it should be background-color

    in the custom.css in your theme.

    there a a few threads on how to hire a developer, also your university has computer engineers, see if you can find one who knows css and php. they might be able to help you with all your customization wishes that you have posting in numerous discussion. short of that read some tutorials, documentation, or hire a developer.

    in custom.css in the theme

    just add the darn thing

     .QnA-Item-Accepted div {
        background-color: green !important;
        }
    

    or

    use any other element you want.

    you will be forever be in the dark.

    • until you begin to read a tutorial on themes.
    • or a learn a thimbleful of information about css and web developer tools.

    hire a developer or make an attempt to learn. take a few days and read,

    nothing is more tiresome then someone who makes no attempt to read documentation about themes and css - when there is so much on the wiki and the forum and the tutorials. specifically related to themes and custom.css.

    forever answering basic questions about the same thing over and over and over again is done by @vrijvlinder‌
    I have no patience for people who can't read the simple documentation or make an effort to spend some time instead of rushing headlong into something they know nothing about because they refuse to read.

    so until you read a few tutorials, I have no more answers for you.

    If people give you resources to help then read them. Otherwise why ask?

    99.99% of CSS problem can be solved with an inspect tool, and peregrine has told you what to do. Nothing more to say.

    grep is your friend.
