Old Skin - Border

Hello,

I've just updated my website (www.telecomhall.com) from mojoportal-2-3-8-5-mssql-net35 to mojoportal-2-3-9-8-mssql-net35.

About the skins, i still use an very old one, one sample just like first versions of mojo.

I'm not a good designer... actually, I'm not a designer. :(

I'm only an engineer, that sometimes like to read about programming, and that has became a fan of mojoportal.

Unfortunately, my lack of time, and of course knowledge about this subject, make me tired.

So, maybe i'm asking something stupid, but as people always say: 'to ask don't hurt'.

So, after update, and some small fixes Joe helped me, i am finishing some small 'problems'... I would like to use some of the new skins, up to date, and with a lot of improvments, but my visitors already recognize telecomhall by it's design. (note that the design is nice, but it was not designed by me... :)

Ok, the problem now:

I have unwanted 'borders' in all div's. Before, there were no borders.

So, anyone can help me on how can i remove these borders?

I'll try to get some time to read more about new skins, and maybe adjust some new one to look my design right now. But i really have almost no time to that.

Thank You all anyway.

Great job you do here.

Re: Old Skin - Border

From what I can tell, all of those borders are there because of this css:

.ui-widget-content {
    border: 1px solid #AAAAAA;
}

This css can be found in the jquery-ui.css file within your skin. You could open it and find .ui-widgit-content and then just delete the entire border rule, that should fix it.

That will, however, remove the border from legitimate jQuery UI items as well, so you might be better off trying to figure out why the ui-widgit-content class is being added to so many divs. My guess is that this is somewhere in your theme.skin, so you might look in there for it and see.

Hope this helps,
-Isaac

Re: Old Skin - Border

Hello Isaac,

Thanks for your help. Unfortunately, i could not find any 'jquery-ui.css' file under my custom skin folder, so probably i'm missing (other) things. :(

Trying to understand all this process, i visited some pages:

http://www.mojoportal.com/changing-the-jquery-ui-theme 

http://www.mojoportal.com/understanding-the-styleconfig-file.aspx

and a lot of other pages.

But it seems to me that i am spending too much time. And losing my focus. As i said before, i'm not a programmer/developer, just a curious trying to use mojoportal.

I'll let my website for now as it is (currently very "ugly", but working). Maybe i can accept to change my old format, and use some of the standard as everybody. I'll try to download skins, and try to find one that is similar to mine. I don't know.

I'm disappointed, because i really liked my old design. But i understand my limits, and that mojoportal is a great CMS for developers.

Thank you again.

BR,

Leo

Re: Old Skin - Border

Ah, if that file isn't in your skin you must be loading your jQuery UI theme from somewhere else. You can likely find out where in the style.config, or possibly in the layout.master.

Instead of trying to find out where it is, you might consider just over-riding it, as so:

.ui-widget-content {
    border: 0 none !important;
}

Put that in your CSS and it should fix it. As I said though, this will break legitimate ui-widget elements, but that is likely a better option to having the border showing on almost every div.

Hope this helps,
-Isaac

Re: Old Skin - Border

Thank You very much.

Now the borders are gone. My old site is again very clean. :)

And i understand that it affect JQuery. I'll do my best to move to one of the latest provided skins.

Once again, thanx.

BR,

Leo
