Remove the bubbles?

http://sobersa.org is an alcohol and other addictions community recovery information portal. I've been asked to remove the bubbles. I've heard people say it reminds them of champagne and that's not the type of celebration the organization wants to suggest.

I've looked through the CSS and images and can find no bubbles; they seem almost like magic to me.

How can I get rid of those lovely celebratory bubbles?

#art-page-background-glare-image

{ background-image: url('/cms/Data/Sites/30/skins/aa-SoberSA/images/Page-BgGlare.png');

background-repeat: no-repeat;

height: 441px;

width: 362px;

margin: 0; }

Above is the css line which is responsible for the bubbles. Just remove the background-image.

And one more thing ... better change the password (and the machine key in web.config) first :)

Have a nice day

Hi Tomasz;

Account disabled, thanks!.

Will changing the "machine key" effect current main-site or sub-site usage? Please suggest a method of determining a new valid "machine key." Thanks!!

style.css and style.ie6.css both reference Page-BgGlare.png and have been /* */ commented out. A different browser, and the bubbles are still there. Any other ideas?

Thanks,
Dale

Hi,

Go to Administration > Advanced Tools > Design Tools > Cache Tool and click the "reset skin guid" button.

Read this page for the MachineKey information.

HTH,

If you don't have the above opption just edit the web.config file (whatever ... add a space somewhere) and save it. It should reset the cache. The bubbles should disappear.

Hi Joe D;

I don't have "reset skin guid", I'm using

mojoPortal Version 2.3.6.2 MSSQL
Operating System Microsoft Windows NT 5.2.3790 Service Pack 2
ASP.NET Info v4.0.21006 Running in Full Trust
Server Time Zone Central Daylight Time
Server Local Time (GMT -5) 3/19/2012 11:41:57 AM
Greenwich Mean Time (GMT/UTC) 3/19/2012 4:41:57 PM

But I do have Disable and Enable CSS Caching which has no effect, still bubbly.

I'll check out that "machine key" change; thanks!

Web.config touch, lengthy time after refresh... still bubbly.

Re: Remove the bubbles?

You will need to copy the skin to a new folder and set the site to use the new copy.

Joe, the trick with "editing" the web.config, doesn't reset the css cache?

Re: Remove the bubbles?

No, not always. It should clear the cache on the server but the browser will usually need clearing as well. While one could clear their own browser cache, that doesn't mean that the cache for other users will be cleared. Renaming the skin will force all browsers to download the skin again because they will see it as a new set of files. That's why the Skin Version Guid is so nice, we can effectively change the url the css without needing to rename the actual skin directory.

HTH,
Joe D.
