  • Aren't you the founder of this wiki perchance?

  • Someone on CC was saying they couldn't make a post, so I was testing it... I'll bet they're using a bad old browser or something like that.

  • Hi, FishTank. It's nice to meet you. By the way, How do I join the vanguard? It's an invite-only group.

  • Did I not say to not do anything with our templates without expressed approval from the others?

    They have been very clear about not wanting this because there are things they want that the portable infoboxes are incapable of thus we have no use for them.

    • Perhaps that requires some clarification. Upon a click or tap, it's always going to expand to full resolution (the 320+px) inside a lightbox / modal. Inside an infobox, it's going to resample and not lose resolution or be blurry; ergo, it can get smaller without the blurriness. It's when that is re-expanded via CSS that the blurriness occurs. It's like taking orange juice, dehydrating it to concentrate, and re-constituting it. If the infobox isn't expanded via CSS past 300px, regardless of the size or resolution of the image, the image won't blur. Does that make sense?

    • When the infobox width is a typical size, the image is not blurred.

  • Do you know of any place where I could post or track an Insights-Bug?

    Because from what I read on this wiki my issues with Insights do not belong here (which is what I initially thought).

  • So I'm in the process of converting this wiki's infoboxes to portable ones, and everything seems fine except for the horizontal data line. Basically, I want the height of the line to be shorter than it is by default (specifically, 12px), however, by adjusting the height in CSS it prevents the < br /> tag from working because the section cannot expand past 12px. Do you know of any way to fix this?

    Here is my code:

    .portable-infobox h2.pi-item.pi-title {line-height:20px; padding:5px;}
    .portable-infobox { color:transparent; widith:100%!important; padding:0.5px;  border:3px ridge; border-color:#2cd0ff; border-radius:10px; 
    }
    .portable-infobox .pi-item-spacing { text-align:center; padding:0.5px; padding-left:2px!important; }
    .portable-infobox .pi-header, .portable-infobox .pi-title, .portable-infobox .pi-navigation { background-color:#2cd0ff; margin:1px; padding:0; color:white; }
    .pi-background { background-color:transparent; }
     .portable-infobox .pi-image img { width:99%; height:auto; border-bottom:2px #2cd0ff ridge; padding-top:1px;}
    .pi-border-color { border-color:transparent; }
    .pi-title, .pi-data-label, .pi-secondary-background { background-color:#2cd0ff; }
    .pi-title { border-radius:0 0 0 0; text-shadow: 3px 3px 3px black; }
    .pi-header {border-radius:0 0 0 0; font-size:11px;}
    .pi-data-label { background-color:#2cd0ff; border-radius:0 8px 8px 0; text-align:left!important; padding-left:2px!important; font-size:10px!important; height:17px; }
    .pi-data-value { border-bottom:1px #2cd0ff solid; color:black!important; text-align:right!important; padding:2px; font-size:10px!important; height:12px!important; }
    .portable-infobox .pi-title, .portable-infobox .pi-secondary-font { background-color:#2cd0ff; color:white; }
    .pi-data { margin:0!important; font-size:10px;}
    .portable-infobox .pi-horizontal-group  {
        padding:2px!important; font-size:10px;
    }
     
    .portable-infobox .pi-image img { border-top-left-radius: 10px!important; border-top-right-radius:10px!important; }
     
    .pi-horizontal-group .pi-data-label{ background-color:#2cd0ff; padding:2px; border-radius:5px;text-align:center!important; padding:2px!important }
     
    .pi-horizontal-group .pi-data-value {border-bottom:0px #2cd0ff solid; color:black!important; font-size:11px; text-align:center!important;}

    • Another general comment: it feels like your various themes are repeating too many unnecessary CSS rules that are common across all of them. If the different themes only differ in image and color, then theoretically it is possible to only specify the difference.

      See this page for example, where the top portion handles common styling (sizes, shapes, padding etc), and the bottom portion handles custom colors for the different themes.

      I do know about that, but thank you for letting me know. This was done in a rush and it works alright, but for future themes, I'll calm down on the code.

      Thank you for the fix as well!

  • Hello, it's me again. I just wanted to know if non-Vanguard users are allowed to give unofficial responses to Mentoring requests if they think they know how to solve the users' problems. If the answer is yes, is there a particular template to mark the response as unofficial; on CC there is one, but I'm not sure about here. Thanks in advance!

  • Hello. Since I really like to work on Infobox styles, I was wondering if I could develop some example ones and then share them here, using the Themes category. Am I allowed to do that or you select only specific styles to be added to that category? Thanks in advance!

    Can you guys change the wordmark so it can look consistent with the wordmarks of the other official wikis? Of course, you can remove the background of the image, though.

  • There is a large, but mostly empty Wiki that I have Bureaucrat rights on which has Infoboxes half a decade old (so old that when I tried to convert one I damaged it by accident & was unable to rebuild it due to time issues). When making a mentoring request, are Vanguard assigned to help me learn process of converting templates, or does the Vanguard just convert the Infoboxes themselves? I ask because I’m not sure what degree of participation is required on my part, & a realistic estimate would be great because I may need to carve out more time than I usually have available specifically for that Wiki, which would have to be at a later date if that’s the case.

    • Absolutely! But, where are the converted versions located? I don’t see any edits in Wiki Activity & they appear to be the same. Did I miss something?
