Here's an easy tip to take advantage again of CSS3 capabilities. With the nth-child(n) pseudo selector, you can customize your forum index or topic list by giving it an alternating background color effect.
Add this code to your Design Studio CSS box:
All Forum Index/Discussion List
Home page module forum list
Blog module list (contributed by Jane Noel)
Home page blog module list
Make sure to change the background color values that will match your theme or to any value you like. I have downloaded and applied this style to a local static html copy of this forum for a good sampling and demo/screenshot below. Similar to the 'Top This Week' box and pretty much straightforward on what the code will do.
The code also applies to featured discussions and group discussion list.
Add your own additional styles and enjoy!
Very nice tip...thanks a lot. will this apply to Main page forum module too?
Hey Bernard, you're welcome. Yes, just updated it :-)
BTW, thanks again.
No problem. hey, I just updated the tip with your request-- it should work on the home page.
It works like a charm. Thanks a lot.
Excellent tip Ron!
Will this work in the old appearance editor? (and where's the FAVORITE button so I can keep track of this discussion?? The only ones we can favorite are the ones on the main page...the featured discussions. We need this ability for ALL discussions.)
I'm not sure but I think it will also work.
Great tip Ron. Thanks for sharing :)
You're welcome Fire-Tech. glad you like it.
