Error message has a pink box around it
That is something that you must have introduced into your custom theme, it’s not the default styling behavior – but then with some 22 stylesheets it’s going to be difficult to debug.
You will need to use firebug or Opera’s firefly to examine the element and isolate the rulesets that are being applied to that element, sadly a jpg isn’t much help to us in determining what is happening we would need to see the element in action so to speak.
Now with my Moderators hat on: You have been asked now by two moderators at least four times not to bump your posts inside a twenty four hour period. You must now observe this request, otherwise you will find it begins to hurt your rep on the forum and people will tend to shy away from helping.
What do I do with firebug?
Paste some code to pastebin?
Ooooh please never ever tell me to chill it’s rude and disrespectful
No you don’t post any code to pastebin you use firebug to examine the elements it will tell you where that outer pink box is coming from, by showing all the rulesets that apply styles to that element inherited or otherwise.
You’ve been posting to quite a few threads recently attempting to help, in some cases with CSS snippets this tells me that you have sufficient skill levels to cope with this, and it’s not really something we can do for you, at least not from afar so to speak.
@hnla, Sounds like I am ticking you off, and you are trying your best to keep your cool.
The only reason I have been posting stuff to help people is because I dealt with a ton of these problems trying to get buddypress into my custom theme, only from trial and error.
You hint in every single topic I post that you want me to leave your forum, so I guess Merry Christmas.
It is not myself you are ticking off it is a few people this will only be evident by the lack of responses you find to your threads, I am attempting to point this out so you can rectify this, my comments regarding your recent posts is meant just as I wrote above and carries no other connotation than that which you impose on it it. You have the skill level required to sort the issue out that you report in this thread, yes there may be a little bit of a learning curve but you should deal with some of the things I’ve had to get to grips with the last few days, we all have to advance and approach unfamiliar things and learn how to deal with them. This is not meant as unhelpful or as some brush off, but with a fair bit of experience over the years troubleshooting layouts for people on forums I can tell you providing an solution to this can only be achieved with access to the pages and using debugging tools such as firebug, this you are better positioned to do than us here on the forum, but we can guide you if you get stuck in and help you to use some essential techniques.
Latly and to re-iterate I have not hinted at anything, if I need to make a point I will do so in a quite obvious and definite manner, I will not hint at things. I do not require that you leave the forum and this forum is NOT mine it is a community project home and I am but a very minor and irrelevant part of it.
I would strongly urge that you spend 10 minutes and give this technical RFC paper a read it’s the definitive treatise on how to deal with forums and lists and will help:
