This is some effect I've found in other forums and like it.

Sample:



1. Upload the two images ( - ) to your 'Themes\default\images' folder.
2. Open 'style.css' and look for :
/* A quote, perhaps from another post. */
.quote
{
color: #000000;
background-color: #C3B8D0;
border: 1px solid #000000;
margin: 1px;
padding: 1px;
font-size: x-small;
}

/* A code block - maybe even PHP ;). */
.code
{
color: #000000;
background-color: #cccccc;
border: 1px solid #000000;
padding: 1px;
font-family: "courier new", helvetica, "times new roman", serif;
font-size: x-small;
width: 99%;
margin: 1px auto 1px auto;
white-space: nowrap;
overflow: auto;
}

/* The "Quote:" and "Code:" header parts... */
.quoteheader, .codeheader
{
color: #000000;
text-decoration: none;
font-style: normal;
font-weight: bold;
font-size: x-small;
}

delete it and replace it with this one:
/* A quote, perhaps from another post. */
.quote
{
border-left: #808080 6px solid;
border-right: #808080 1px solid;
border-bottom: #808080 1px solid;
padding-right: 4px;
padding-left: 4px;
padding-bottom: 4px;
padding-top: 4px;
margin: 0px auto 8px;
color: #465584;
background-color: #ffffff;
font-size: x-small;
}

/* The "Quote:" header parts... */
.quoteheader
{
border-left: #808080 6px solid;
border-right: #808080 1px solid;
border-top: #808080 1px solid;
padding-right: 3px;

.code
{

border-bottom: #c0c0c0 1px solid;
border-top: #e1e1e1 1px solid;

}

Awesome! Saw this on another forum some time ago too (can't remember which it was), and wanted to get it on mine too... but I never got around to trying how to do it... so this is great :).

The quotes on Ben_S's site looks like they're supposed to in those threads I just checked out (using Firefox) :).

Hmm, odd works fine in firefox for me, not looked in IE but noone has mentioned anything.

Just looked in IE and it looks ok too, although as a side note I've just noticed it stops the css from validating, will take a look at that tomorrow.

Odd indeed, I tried it on my machine at home and my bro's machine... and still it wasn't putting the link in properly!?

Members probably don't like it cos they don't like change...!

I suggest:

/* A quote, perhaps from another post. */

border-bottom: #808080 1px solid;

/* The "Quote:" header parts... */
.quoteheader
{

font-weight: bold;
font-size: small;

background-position: center right;
background-image: url(images/quoteh.gif);

That should validate, methinks.  Also, it should more reliably show the image in the right place.

Will test it tomorrow. although will reduce the font and graphic size as people seem to hate it and prefair the original way of doing quote. Fancy features eh, who needs em ;).

I hate to be a royal pain in the ass... buuuut, it still doesn't show the links for me, no matter where I look from.

Is it anything to do with the fact that I am viewing as a guest?

Parsing of YSE style quotes doesn't work properly in RC1. Try a newer post with a quote.

Yup... sorry I kept visiting the same page, with that post/quote! It was working the whole time...

oops :-[

Ben Dragon

This is an excellent modification which I have adapted into my system along with some minor tweaks like text colour modification within the quotes.

However, I've found that if there is a quote nested within a quote the text within that nested quote is blue.

Since I have my quote background set to blue this makes it difficult to read.

While finding the line that affects the main quote window text colour has been easy, I cannot find the line that modifies the text colour of the quote nested within a quote.

Can anyone offer some direction?

A.M.A

try changing the red line:
Quote.quote
{
border-left: #808080 6px solid;
border-right: #808080 1px solid;
border-bottom: #808080 1px solid;
padding: 4px;
margin: 0px auto 8px;
color: #465584;
background-color: #ffffff;
font-size: x-small;
}

Ben Dragon

That changes the text colour for the main quote window, but didn't effect the quote within quote window.

:(

In your CSS, do you have:

.quote .quote

Or something?  By default, quotes within quotes should (I think) be the same as any others.

Before going any further with this I have a question;

        Would the "Quote" script pick up the colour of the text from the original post?

        i.e., if someone was quoting this text you are reading, (which is blue), would it come out as blued text in the quoted reply?

If it does, as I'm beginning to suspect, then I think I've found the problem.
