Postbit help

I would like to modify how threads are displayed and would very much appreciate some help. I think this is beyond my scope, so I am hoping someone can help me.

Basically on showthread pages I want to separate each post slightly. Please see my example screenshot:



Also, where the red dots are, can I change the color of that bar to be white so it looks as though the post content area flows into it and it is not separated by the white/grey?

If I post some CSS and don't say where it goes, put it in the additional.css template.
I will NOT help via PM (you will be directed to post in the forums for help.)

OK, the postfoot background uses the stylevar "postbit_foot_background"

As for the spacing between posts, that is set in this CSS:

So, either change the padding stylevar (which will effect a lot more than that) or just add this to your additional.css template:

Change xx to the margin you want.

Hi Lynne

Thanks for that works great, Can you also help me change one other bit

If you look at the screenshot: http://i.imgbox.com/abl4GJQQ.png


I would like to make the post head curved. However, see how the first post is attached to the blue bar... Can every post after post #1 be curved?

I suppose the first post on every page needs to stay the same (not curved) but every subsequent posthead can be curved.

--------------- Added 14 Apr 2013 at 22:40 ---------------

Also, is it possible to attach that bottom bar to the last posts postbit_foot

You would need to add several (and go look up radius css because you need to add different stuff for different browsers - this is just for one browser):

Hi Lynne!

Thanks so much that worked great!

There's just two more things which I would love to fix.

http://imgbox.com/acgbtCHv

Can it be made so the first post on each page is not curved.

Here is a URL to that thread http://forums.nrlweekly.com/showthre...the-Masters%29

You probably can't change the first post without either changing the template or using a plugin to change the template to allow a custom class for all postibits but the first of the page.

Why not curve the tool bar bottom and add a small space between it and the first post? That would probably be easier.

That's a good idea Lynne

Would you be able to help me with the code for that?

There's no gap between the task bar and the bar containing the time/date/post number. Looks like it's treating it all as one object.
On mine even the default has a gap between them. Works great on mine.

Thanks Lynne.

I don't know what you want right now. There is supposed to be a gap between the top bar and the postbit. I'd suggest putting it back. If you want to have no gap, I think you will need to write some plugin to do what you want. I don't have the time to look into that, so you would need to look into how to do that.

Then something like you did above to the tcat class:

Since it is a custom style, I have no idea if that will affect other areas and there is no id tag I can use to make it unique to that page. You will need to edit your templates to do that.
