My friends with Macs are about to kill me! ( 15:21:32 WedMay 8 2002 )

Board Plan: Mac



My board is lovely... Exactly what I wanted. However, my pals who are Mac users don't agree. They say it looks like crap because the forum list, thread list, and thread all have black backgrounds. See http://nyip.net/~jkarin/kara/IE.gif and http://nyip.net/~jkarin/kara/NS.gif for examples.

Picky, picky, picky! :wink:

They tried your board and said it looks wonderful. (Here's her snapshot of your page http://nyip.net/~jkarin/kara/IE2.gif.)

So what did you guys do?

I've gone through your stylesheets. I've gone through your HTML. And I still can't figure it out.

We have a transparent threadlist & main page table, it's the table in the header that has a background image there. :smile:

They're not seeing the colour in the actual threadlist itself? The black is the border colour, put in the <table> tag. Are you using Easy customization, or CSS? :smile:

I'm using CSS, but there are some values set in the easy customization form.

Ah, the parts in EC which are done in HTML (like the threadlist background) are added even if you have EC disabled. :smile: You might want to remove everything from EC. It might be that the people with Macs have CSS disabled (or just don't support CSS), so they're only seeing the EC change, not the CSS one. :smile:

OK... I know how I got myself into this mess now!

Some of these tables aren't handled uniformly in your system. Some have table styles that are applied to the whole table, and then another that is applied to rows or cells. Some don't. Some have TH tags for table headers and some don't. Some have the TH tags inside the TBODY tags. And some don't. And in one case, I found that the only way to eliminate the white border around the table cells (the thread nav bar) was to put the color in the EC settings.

I'd be happy to do a detailed write-up of this if you would like.

It seems to me that there should always be one style for the entire table, another for the headers, and another for rows and columns of actual data.

My Mac pals are now happy again.

Thanks for your help!!! Once again, you are the tops! :thumb:
