How To: Put the avatars on the left (Firefox only.)

Postby Teknorat » Fri Aug 08, 2008 2:56 pm

Hello fellow OFCC'ers! Want your OFCC threads to have the profile info on the left so you can see whose saying what?

Example:
http://www.teknorat.com/OFCC/example.png

Then just follow these simple instructions!


You will need:
A PC.
Firefox.
The ability to navigate folders on your PC.
1 minutes time.

First download this file:
http://www.teknorat.com/OFCC/userContent.css

Save it to your desktop or somewhere convenient.

Next you will need to navigate to your user settings folder for Firefox.
To do this you will need to make sure that you can see hidden files and folders on your PC.

In my case this was:

C:\Documents and Settings\YOUR-WINDOWS-USER-NAME-HERE\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\d7n4tw0j.default\chrome

The profile folder should be named a bunch of gibberish followed by .default then you just need to go into the chrome folder, drag the provided file in there, restart Firefox and go to OFCC :D

This is a safe and easy fix and can be further tweaked by those so inclined.

Code: Select all
@-moz-document domain(ohioccwforums.org)

{

.postbody {
   padding: 0 ! important;
   line-height: 1.48em;
   color: #333333;
   width: 78% ! important;
   float: right ! important;
   clear: both;
   padding-left: 10px ! important;
   border-left: 1px solid #FFFFFF ! important; 
   }


.postprofile {
   /* Also see tweaks.css */
   padding-left: 17px ! important;
   padding-top: 15px ! important;
   margin: 5px 0 10px 0;
   min-height: 80px;
   color: #666666;
   width: 15% ! important;
   float: left ! important;
   display: inline;
   border-left: 0px solid #000000 ! important;
   }

.online {
   background-image: none;
   background-position: 0 0 ! important;
   background-repeat: no-repeat;
   background-image: url("http://www.teknorat.com/phpBB-3.0.2/phpBB3/styles/prosilver/imageset/en/icon_user_online.gif") ! important;
   }

Thanks Teknorat. Only one problem. The avatars appear on the bottom left now, instead of the top left. Is there a fix for that?

What resolution is your monitor are you running at?

I'm going to work now but I'll tweak it some more when I get home tonight.

This affects the appearance on your PC only of course.

Teknorat should create a self-extracting .msi for the benefit of the technology-challenged users of Windows. :)

Er, no--all avatars will appear on the left, not just yours.

I found this information on how to find my profile folder. I dropped your .css file in there an it doesn't seem to work for me on my vista laptop. :(

You did close and reopen Firefox afterward, right?

How to preset the size of the post text

Postby Scavok » Fri Aug 08, 2008 5:35 pm

To those desirous of having a larger font for the posts, add this line anywhere within .postbody:

Code: Select all
font-size: 1.5em ! important;

(Adjust the value to suit you.)

How to set your very own "ONLINE" image

Postby Scavok » Fri Aug 08, 2008 5:41 pm

This little guy has been substituted for the "ONLINE" banner:

You too can do that with this line in .online:

Code: Select all
background-image: url("http://i31.tinypic.com/155qavl.jpg") ! important;


And here's a video of it:

Good. What is the complete path to the spot where you put the file?

The funny thing is that all avatars now seem to be below the signature line. Or should I say at the bottom left of them. :lol:

Plus now the signature line is greater by the size of the avatar too.
