A few simple!

edited August 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help

Hey! OK….I’ve been an amateur Vanilla user for awhile.  Now, I’m trying to do a simple bloggish thing with my homepage. Anyway…..there are 2 things I want to add/change: 1.) I just want to change the word “Discussions” into “Blog” or “News”

2.) I want to add a background around this area of the page….just not sure where to put the CSS…? It would be a simple vertical fade that descends down the page…

Heres the pic, & my page:

Thanks, Mars

    1- Copy this line:

    $Context->Dictionary['Discussions'] = 'Discussions';

    to your conf/language.php and just change 'Discussions'; to anything you want.

    2- If you want to add a fade between the left panel and the content, look for this "#Content" in vanilla.css file and just add your image to it:
    #Content {
    background: url('yourimage') repeat-y left top;

    If it's a vertical fad you don't want it repeating on the Y axis, but the X axis ;)#Content { background: #xxxxxx url('fade.png') repeat-x left top; }
    The #xxxxxx colour should match the bottom colour of the fade.png file.
