CSS help needed for new style

edited July 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
I have been working on this beast of a style ever since the vanilla dev forum was created.

It is almost to the point where I can package it together and put it on the add-ons, but there is one really annoying factor remaining: IE. Notably, the content pane extends to the right of the browser window.

Any CSS gurus are welcome to take a wack at it:

If you want to see it in action, place in your custom style URL field under the change stylesheet option of your account tab.


  • Nice looking, WallPhone. I've been working on a style which put the tabs on the left as well. Although my css skills aren't quite that fantastic, so I ran into troubles with the content-width as well, but for all browsers (as opposed to just IE). I'm guessing you'd need a css hack, so it's only picked up by IE, and do something with the margins/paddings of the content div.
  • Not a bad style dude. Whilst not to my preference I like what you've done with the layout :)

    I haven't invested much in terms of a color scheme yet, but will break the colors out so they are easily changed.

    Tabling the discussion grid and categories was such a pain in the neck that I about resorted to making a theme instead!

    Hey look! threaded search results (at least in FF with my style)
  • It's certainly interesting. What are the search results doing though? I've never understood threaded stuff.

    Not really threaded, just a float error caused by a long category

  • haha, that's quite amusing.
  • I found my fix... as an actual IE feature!right: 0 !important; /* solid right positioning for modern browsers */ width: expression(document.body.clientWidth-258); /* relative right positioning for IE6 */Now to squash these other errors... and add some images.
  • The way to fix that is to clear:left on the comments.
  • I fixed it by giving more room for the category--but its a good idea to do that also.

    Fixes aren't on my server just yet, will be in another two hours or so.
