Quote Settings/ Change Login Text

Post by philstar » Wed Nov 23, 2005 3:51 pm

Hi guys,

since i started my blog a few days ago i already learned the "basics" of the css and php thing. i modified an existing theme a little bit, but there are still some unanswered questions.

1.
I´d like to see a 1px frame around my quotes in new messages. i searched the style.css, without any trace of a useful entry. are the quote settings located at the css file ??

2. I am using the blog as a "usual" website. is is possible to change the text over the "login" link ?? right now, "administration of the Blog" is being displayed ( i am using the german version: "zur verwaltung des blogs")
i want to change it to a simple version, i.e. "Login".

in hope of help

philstar.

p.s.
maybe you take a look at my site *bg*

Hi!

Which HTML tag to you use for showing quotes? You can then use CSS to make a "border: 1px solid red" around that element. I.e.:

Code: Select all

blockquote {
  border: 50px solid red;
}


2. I am using the blog as a "usual" website. is is possible to change the text over the "login" link ?? right now, "administration of the Blog" is being displayed ( i am using the german version: "zur verwaltung des blogs")
i want to change it to a simple version, i.e. "Login".


Some of the internal plugins do not allow configuration of the login title. You have several options:

1. Change the text within the "generate_content()" method of the serendipity_superuser_plugin class within the include/plugin_internal.inc.php file. Modify "$title = $this->title" to read "$title = 'Meine Loginbox'".

2. Edit your lang/serendipity_lang_de.inc.php language file and change the wording for the constant "SUPERUSER".

3. Create a custom HTML nugget plugin with the HTML contents you see in the superuser login box, and then change the title of the box.

no problems with the quote edit, but the login problem still exists.

with your help i could change the title of the login, but the link doesnt change. or does step 2 and 3 fix it ??! :?:

stupid question.....my mistake.

my question is "is there an other way to change the title, instead of including a nugget ?!"

Philstar, yes there are other ways to change the title instead of including a nugget:

1. Change the text within the "generate_content()" method of the serendipity_superuser_plugin class within the include/plugin_internal.inc.php file. Modify "$title = $this->title" to read "$title = 'Meine Loginbox'".

2. Edit your lang/serendipity_lang_de.inc.php language file and change the wording for the constant "SUPERUSER".

3. Copy the plugin to a new plugin file, modify it, and then you have your very own plugin.
