Current status of the Ning Platform is always available on the Ning Status Blog.

Here's some little snippets to make active buttons and HTML Editor mode stand out more...was bugging me, so figured I'm not the only one. Add to your CSS.



/*_________Fire-Tech HTML & Buttons____________*/
a.mceButton.mceButtonEnabled.mce_code.mceButtonActive{border: 0px!important; background-image: none!important; margin: 0 0 -.6em -.2em!important;}
.mceButton.mceButtonEnabled.mce_code.mceButtonActive:before {content:"HTML Mode"; border: .15em groove #000; border-radius:.4em; padding:.18em; background:#ff0000; font-weight:bold!important; color: #ffff00; text-shadow: -.15em .15em .2em #000; margin-left: -.2em!important; margin-bottom: -.6em!important;}
a.mceButtonActive{border: .1em solid #000!important; background: #c0c0c0!important;}

  • Great how a few little tweaks make all the difference.  Here's another one to combine with yours (while they're at it).  Change the grey background to whatever you wish.

    .defaultSkin table {background: blue;}


    • Aaaah. I like :)

      We should start a group for NC's with OCD :)

      Here's one for the success message:

      div.notice-successMessage{border:2px groove #fff;border-radius:10px;-moz-box-shadow:0 -1px 6px -1px rgba(0,0,0,1);-webkit-box-shadow:0 -1px 6px -1px rgba(0,0,0,1);box-shadow:0 1px 8px 1px rgba(0,0,0,1);margin-bottom:40px;background-color:#b6dae5}


      • "OCD"  lmao!  Better invite SoaringEagle.  I remember he totally overhauled his but i haven't looked in quite some time.  Here a little tweak the wording, color and font size in the "read more" area of posts using Language Editor.

        1064551853.png?width=721Code used in Language Editor:

        <p><span style="color: #0081C2; font-size: 11px;">Read More, Comment and Share......</span></p>


        Widen the area given for additional "read more" wording by adjusting with CSS

        .blogListPage-readMore {width: 190px;}

        • Yeah, I have been busy with a new network. Haven't checked his out in a while either. Def use the Read More. Thx.

          Here's one for colored scroll bars in Chrome. FF doesn't support yet though...

          /**** SCROLLBARS ****/
          ::-webkit-scrollbar {width:8px; }
          ::-webkit-scrollbar-track {background:transparent; border-radius:6px; box-shadow:0px 0px 10px 1px silver inset; margin:10px!important; padding:50px!important;}
          ::-webkit-scrollbar-thumb {border-radius:8px; box-shadow:0px 0px 3px 1px blue inset; border: solid 1px #000;}
          ::-webkit-scrollbar-thumb:hover {border-radius:8px; box-shadow:0px 0px 2px 1px blue inset;}

          • Nice one!  I've had brain freeze on Language Editor.  I know there's SO much more we can do with it.  I think I'm juggling too many balls in the air.  Need to focus.  ADD my problem.  Focus Laura focus!  lol

            • lol :)

  • Hi Fire Tech

    I would love to add this to our pages. Where do you place your own network name in the code?

    /*_________Fire-Tech HTML & Buttons____________*/ 

    thank you
    • Does your code only work for 3.0? If so, that is my problem because I am still operating off of 2.0.

      • Actually, it looks like it does work on 2.0. They must have kept the CSS classes the same.

        paste in Design Studio / Advanced CSS

      • Rise what's your URL?  We can take a look and see if something is conflicting.

Some interesting articles related to community management, digital marketing etc. could be found in our digest. Don't hesitate to leave a feedback so we would know that we should continue :-)
