Add a Christmas look and feel to your sites

Hi folks,

Here is your Christmas Present from me. Please accept it as a token of love.

How to implement ?

Note: For some reason this forum is not showing the correct iframe width and height inside the code below. This is supposed to be width size 780 and height size 320. Please correct it before saving your text box. 

For 2 column layout,  just copy and paste the following code into any text box.

<div id="page-content" class="description">
<div class="xg_user_generated"><iframe width="780" height="320" src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/DqaYw0w2aP*-MEM3cFsemQ7i-Sl7Ka8uMJ-p1oyBtr8wLtpaHGJpRP5RrWZZlGn1*QAzuT7CQKsKKyP7hPqlS5VS*cgMLe6a/1059732076.html" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"></iframe></div>

For Three Column Layout, follow the steps below.

Step 1: Add 2 text boxes on the top of left and middle column. 

Step 2: paste the following codes:

CODE 1 THIS CODE GOES TO ADVANCED CSS BOX:

.space {height:300px;margin-top:-20px;} 
.module_text .xg_module_body {overflow:visible;}
#spotlight {margin-left:-247px;width:747px;}
#spotlight img, #spotlight embed, #spotlight object {padding:0; margin:0; max-width:747px;}

 

CODE 2 THIS CODE GOES TO MIDDLE TEXT BOX:

<div id="spotlight" class="space">
<div id="page-content" class="description">
<div class="xg_user_generated"><iframe width="780" height="320" src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/DqaYw0w2aP*-MEM3cFsemQ7i-Sl7Ka8uMJ-p1oyBtr8wLtpaHGJpRP5RrWZZlGn1*QAzuT7CQKsKKyP7hPqlS5VS*cgMLe6a/1059732076.html" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"></iframe></div>
</div>
</div>

 

CODE 3 THIS CODE GOES TO LEFT TEXT BOX:

<div class="space"></div>

    Thanks Joan. I'm glad it worked for you. Right behind the banner of your network there is a gap between 2 modules. To get rid of it, follow the following instruction.

    If you want to remove text box background, simply copy and paste this code into advanced css box: 

    .module_text {
    background: transparent!important;
    border: none!important;
    }

    If you want to add background in specific text box just wrap up the contents with the following code:

    This code goes to text box:

    <div class="text_style">YOUR CONTENT GOES HERE</div>

    This code goes to Advanced CSS box:

    .text_style {
    background: #E1E8FA;
    border-width: 1px;
    border-style: solid;
    border-color: #BDBDBD;
    padding: 5px;
    margin: -5px;
    }

    This code will remove background color of the text box


    .module_text {
    background: transparent!important;
    border: none!important;
    }

    • Any reply on the custom search feature?

    • O thanks Bernard I'll take a look at that. Much appreciated!

  • Nice work Bernard and i hope you to have a fantastic Christmas :)

  • Hi Bernard I've tried this Christmas graphic - cut and pasted the 2 column code but it's not worked! the message is way over to the right ... so we get "Merry Chris"  (I resized the box to 780x320) ??!!

      Hi Joan,

      Thanks for liking it. Well, you got to change the iframe size manually as this forum is not showing the iframe size correctly, it is automatically changing. 

  • NC for Hire

    If you are using Ning 3.0 with 2 column layout, just copy and paste the following code into any wider test box...

    <iframe width="712" height="292" src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/*tHd*uipNJAN1vpx6fKuDAinxTFEEOa1ztaYpIgr6xHNQW2qGi523skhLxMDCfClase2AZVlCS5TnX6nqxMkaxnFtdWx7sg6/1064518628.html" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"></iframe>
