Problems with the Entry_Date section

Post by Trixtan » Mon May 02, 2005 12:12 pm

Hi all again.
I have a little problem with the section in object. I have tried in all possible manners, but I am not able to put a little corner-image in the bottom - right corner of this section. I have studied the style.css file of a site in which the author have succeded in doing this. I have copied the code, I have done everything, but the image remains invisible, and nothing change.
Do you maybe know why? Maybe someone has found the same problem?
Another thing... please can you tell me where to find the code of the "powered by" plugin? I want to add some html code to show some other images.
THANKS!!!!!

Trixtan: Can you post the URL to your blog so we can see what you did already?

.serendipity_entry_date {
background-image: url('http://example.gif/bg.gif');
}

should really do...

The Code of the "powered by" plugin is inside include/plugins_internal.inc.php :-)

However it would be easier for you to copy the HTML output of that plugin, modify it to suit yur needs and insert it into a HTML nugget plugin. This way you wouldn't have to modify core internal PHP files :)

Hi!!!!
I thank you so much!
I will post the link of my blog once it will be kinda more beautiful than now (now it isn't a blog... lol, it is ... uhm .... under construction very hard!) .
I haven't understand very well how to put an html nugget in that plugin. I haven't understood where to apply it. Haven't i to modify the core plugin? have I to code a new plugin maybe?

Thanks garvin, for your patience and for your work!!

Just go to the Plugin Configuration screen. Then click on the link "Click here to install a new sidebar plugin". In the next list, select the "HTML Nugget" plugin.

You are then forwarded to the configuration screen of the HTML Nugget ,which you can later access by going to plugin configuration and clicking on the title of the HTML Nugget.

Inisde this config screen of the nugget you see a large textarea where you can paste your HTML code. Be sure to check the "Apply Markup transformations" settin below to "NO". So you can enter any HTML markup into that textarea, like:

Code: Select all
