I need help, please.... ::sigh: ( 04:05:56 ThuMar 28 2002 )

Here's a really dumb question for you... I am moving my forum from Xsorbit and have been trying to set it up for the last couple of days. I've caught on to a lot of the lingo and programming for your boards, but I'm at a loss on this issue. I created the forums with no problem, but when I go into one of the boards it's completely blank except for the background and title image. There is no way to start a thread, go to admin, nothing. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I'm sure it's an easy answer and I'll smack myself when I hear it, but I'm desperate now. Also, When I try to reorder the forums, I get the same blank page. No way to reorder the forums unless I delete and re-enter them. HELP!!! Thanks in advance for your time and patience!!

Let me know the URL to the forum that's doing this, and I'll take a look - it sounds like you're using some HTML in the forum title that's messing it up a bit.. :smile:

LOL I wish it was just one forum, but it appears to be all of them. :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes: Any and all help is greatly appreciated. Thank you so very much for getting back to me so quickly. I'm disgusted and frustrated with my last host, so I know I'm not concentrating like I should. Thanks again!!

The problem appears to be this in your template:

Code:

<style type="text/css">
<!--Body
{scrollbar-face-color:000000;
scrollbar-shadow-color:696969;
scrollbar-highlight-color:D3D3D3;
scrollbar-3dlight-color:FFF8DC;
scrollbar-darkshadow-color:#0E0E0E;
scrollbar-track-color:000000;
scrollbar-arrows-color:C0C0C0;}--
</style>


Change that to:

Code:

<style type="text/css">
<!--
Body
{scrollbar-face-color:000000;
scrollbar-shadow-color:696969;
scrollbar-highlight-color:D3D3D3;
scrollbar-3dlight-color:FFF8DC;
scrollbar-darkshadow-color:#0E0E0E;
scrollbar-track-color:000000;
scrollbar-arrows-color:C0C0C0;}
-->
</style>


(The --> was missing the > )

Or just use the "Scrollbar" controls in Easy Customization, and it'll show up fine :smile:

May I ask another question?? Is it possible to use dynamic fonts in the welcome page html? I use that in 2 websites I host and tried to imput the code, but it won't save. If not, that's fine I'll just do it the "old-fashioned" way. I just prefer the look of the dynamic setup. Thanks again for everything you're doing. Angel

Yup, you should be able to use any HTML you like in the welcome page. It won't save? Is it just not showing up? You seem to have the -- instead of --> problem on the welcome page too, if that's it... :smile:

Oh, I just had another look at your welcome page, and thought that you might have meant BbCodes ([ b] [ u] etc). You can only use HTML in there, BbCodes won't work. :smile:

This is the dynamic code I'm using:

In header:
<LINK REL=FONTDEF SRC="http://www.truedoc.com/pfrs/BakerSignet.pfr">
<FONT FACE="BakerSignet BT">
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript" SRC="http://www.truedoc.com/activex/tdserver.js">
</SCRIPT>

In body:
<FONT FACE="BakerSignet BT" SIZE="3" COLOR="#EEE8AA">

And then my text, of course. I didn't place any Bbcodes in the script, but did have the scrollbar script. I'll try it without the scrollbar script and see if that helps. Thanks for your help. I know you're busy!! :biggrin:

Hmm, the welcome page does appear to have saved - it's showing the changes you made, for me at least... :smile: And the font thing seems to work for me too - I get a box asking if I want to install it... Are you maybe viewing a cached copy? Try a hard refresh on the welcome page, or clearing your cache.. :smile:
