Some formatting questions
I have a few questions that I was not able to find on the FAQ. I would appreciate any help or reference to where I can find the answers. My site is http://www.kleinboys.smugmug.com/ . I'm trying to do some very simple (many would say boring) changes to make this a gray and black site. Here are some things I still need help with:

1. How do I change the link to the gallery (currently white, want black).
2 .I don't want to show the gallery updated date.
3. Page n of x - n comes out in black, the rest green. I want it all in black.
4. Comments: they are coming up white, gray and black. How do I change the color of the person, date, wrote about this, and comment. Also, I don't want to give the option to hide comments, I want them there (here's an example of the comment issue)



1. aug wrote about this gallery on Jan 31st

Nice gallery David. Some really interesting shots/angles.

5. Eliminating the Name/Gallery on all pages . I did get it off the home page and used the following code:
I put:

/* hides your name (including any 's) */
#userName {
display: none;
}
/* hides the word home */
#userHome {
display: none;
}

in my CSS section but still have:

David Klein (Kleinboys) > Snowboarding Season 2006-2007

(or whatever gallery name) show up on all pages under the nav bar (except the home page). Is that the correct code to turn that off?

Thanks for any help. This is a great forum.

David,

For items #1 and #3, please try adding the following to your CSS (liberally "borrowed" from Mike Lane's "Customizing for Dummies" series):
Code:
a:link, /* access all the links on your smugmug site */
.nav a:link,
.albumTitle a:link,
#homepage a:link {
color:#000000; /* change the color to light yellow */
text-decoration:underline; /* set the text decoration to underline */
}

a:visited, /* access all the visited states in the smugmug site */
.nav a:visited,
.albumTitle a:visited,
#homepage a:visited {
color:#000000; /* change the color to light white */
text-decoration:underline; /* set the text to be underlined */
}

a:hover, /* select all the link hover states on the whole site */
.nav a:hover,
#homepage a:hover,
.albumTitle a:hover {
color:#FFFFFF; /* set the color to black */
text-decoration:underline; /* underline them */
}

a:active, /* select all the link active states  when the mouse button is down */
.nav a:active,
.albumTitle a:active,
#homepage a:active {
color:#FFFFFF; /* set the color to black */
text-decoration:underline; /* underline them */
}

/* sets text color to black */
a.title, .title, .imgBorderOn {
     color: black;
}

#pageNavigation_top {
     color:black;
}
For item #2, to hide the date of last update, I believe there's a toggle in the gallery customization to present your galleries "clean." The only drawback is that this also suppresses the gallery description. For item #4, can you please post a direct link to a picture that has comments?

See if any of this helps. Good luck.

Samir

Thanks, Samir. 1,2 and 3 looks good. Here's a link to a gallery with comments: ( issue #4):

Add this to your CSS

#comments .foreground,
#comments span {
color: #333333;
}

BTW, you have this at the bottom of your CSS, remove it.

And for #5 above in your original post (hiding the breadcrumb), put the code from this message near the top of your CSS box.

Thanks.

Samir

How did you know I had this errant text in my CSS? Thanks Al - you really know your stuff. While I've got your ear - how can I turn off the Photo Rank thumbs up/down (I find it annoying) and is there an easy way to make all my gray backgrounds gradient?

Thanks again.

David,

Turn off the "Photorank" setting in your Gallery customization. I think it's in the "Social" box near the bottom.

I viewed your page with Firefox WebDev extension, links in my siggy. With
it you can view any page and make changes and see in real time what they
do. Have to select changes and save in text because it doesn't save.

In each gallery customization you can turn off the ranking thumbs.

You would have to create the gradients, upload to your site and apply
them. There are a few threads here discussing it.
