CSS file changes

list of changes that have occurred in the template files that have an impact on css files

Finally we have the templates more or less in a usable state and we are now starting to document template changes that affect css classes globally.

ReleaseTwo CSS changes

all changes made in dillinger will be documented with a substitution expression to make upgrading from one version to another as simple as possible. the reason why we have to make changes at all, is because bitweaver is evolving rather quickly and we need to adjust to the demands set by the users. styling should be simple, but should also be flexible. personally, i think we are on the right track to achieving this goal.

all the substitution strings are meant for vim

so, if you are planning on upgrading a theme from ReleaseOne to dillinger, please read the following section carefully.

before you make any changes, please make sure you make a backup copy of your theme.

  • conversion of .navbar to different types of bars
    • tabs --> class="pageactions tabs"
    • tools --> class="pageactions tools"
    • sorting --> class="pageactions sort"

to further differentiate between the different types of pageactions, you can use the .tools .tabs and .sort selectors.

2004-12-28 - xing

  • removed any occurances of target="..." since that attribute isn't allowed in XHTML 1.0 Strict anymore
  • introduced new class="external" for links leaving site. this class can be used to highlight links that leave the site to 'warn' the user (currently style is set in base.css)

2004-12-13 - xing

  • changed div .appmenu and .admenu to .menu
    (it is still possible to access these module individually by using the unique module css class)
  • above change makes it possible to use .head and .item for the menus instead of .menuhead and .menuoption
  • to update your custom css file do the following:
    .menuhead --> .menu .head
    .menuoption --> .menu .item
  • menu structure has also changed somewhat to accomodate for the new css driven dropdown menus. all menus are now unordered lists. this should not concern you though, as the basic styling of the list is taken care of base.css. see ReleaseOneChangelog
