NC for Hire

Hi folks,

Probably this tip is very simply but could be effective enough to encourage members to add a discussion quickly. Basically what I'm doing is highlighting the "ADD A DISCUSSION" button  to make it more visible to members. So here we go.....


Simply copy and paste the following code into Advanced CSS. 

Note: If you are looking for a person to customize your site, I'm available for hire. You may want to check my profile or you can directly contact me via my email id

  • Nice tip. Implemented on my Portals.

  • Nice addition to got with my "Read More" button but I may have to pass until I reduce the number of CSS characters in my custom css field...I'm approaching my limit. 

    BTW: Your site looks a lot more polished and professional Bernard. I'm interested in a few aspects but will send a private message if I can't figure out who to do it myself.

      Ohhh sure Troy I will wait for your message. BTW, thanks for liking my tip.

  • Nice one, Bernard.

    • NC for Hire

      Thank you Alison. I feel a little weird because now-a-days I don't have much time to interact with NC folks. 

  • Thanks Bernard,

    I used on my site and it is working fine. You are a GEM dear.

  • Nice ....Thanks
