new skin settings and edit tags on HTML CONTENT missing

When i create a new skin with Artisteer 4.2 and export it everything seems to be fine except i seem to be unable to see the settings and edit tags that would allow me to change HTML CONTENT text.   Help Please!

Re: new skin settings and edit tags on HTML CONTENT missing

In some cases it can happen that the design results in the links being the same color as the background or close enough that they cannot be seen.

If you look in the stylemojo.css file you can find this for links in the main content:

a{color:inherit}

you may need to change that to a color that works with your design. Or to affect only the module edit links, you may need to specifiy a color in this:

a.ModuleEditLink,
a.ModuleEditLink:link,
a.ModuleEditLink:visited,
a.ModuleEditLink:hover,
a.ModuleEditLink:active { font-size:10px !important; color:yourcolor; }

or to specifically affect the top nav links like sign in you would modify this:

.sitelink,a.sitelink:link,a.sitelink:visited { color:inherit; ...

After making changes to css files, go to Administration > Advanced Tools > Design Tools > Cache Tool

and click the button to reset the skin guid

​Hope that helps,

Joe

Nope that wasn't it... I did figure out what is happening though. It looks like because the font is large and i have enough text to fill two lines that settings and edit get pushed to the third line which happens to not be visiable in that little title above the block.

I just don't know what to do to fix that.

You could change the design to use smaller font, or you could move the edit links outside of the title by editing your theme.skin file.

Look for this:

<portal:ModuleTitleControl runat="server" 
    DetectSideColumn="true"
    UseModuleHeading="false"
    Element="h2"
    SideColumnElement="h3"
    LiteralExtraTopContent="<div class='art-postmetadataheader'>"
    LiteralExtraBottomContent="</div>"
    SideColumnLiteralExtraTopContent="<div class='art-blockheader'>"
    SideColumnLiteralExtraBottomContent="</div>"
    ExtraCssClasses="art-postheader"
    SideColumnExtraCssClasses="t"
    LiteralHeadingTopWrap="<span class='art-postheadericon'>"
    LiteralHeadingBottomWrap="</span>"
    
    /> 

change it like this:

<portal:ModuleTitleControl runat="server" 
    DetectSideColumn="true"
    UseModuleHeading="false"
    Element="h2"
    SideColumnElement="h3"
    LiteralExtraTopContent="<div class='art-postmetadataheader'>"
    LiteralExtraBottomContent="</div>"
    SideColumnLiteralExtraTopContent="<div class='art-blockheader'>"
    SideColumnLiteralExtraBottomContent="</div>"
    ExtraCssClasses="art-postheader"
    SideColumnExtraCssClasses="t"
    LiteralHeadingTopWrap="<span class='art-postheadericon'>"
    LiteralHeadingBottomWrap="</span>"
    RenderEditLinksInsideHeading="false"
    /> 

That will put the edit links in a separate div below the title but may need some css tweaks to make it look good. But only editors will see that anyway.
