Mocha skin - forum post edit link

Just noting this in case i7media are maintaining this...

I've been trying out the Mocha skin, and found it was not possible to edit a forum post. I found this mark-up for the link:

<h3>

<a title="Edit Post" class="postEdit" id="ctl00_mainContent_postList_rptMessages_ctl00_editLink" href="http://xxx.co.uk/Forums/EditPost.aspx?pageid=5&amp;mid=7&amp;postid=1&amp;thread=1&amp;forumid=1&amp;pagenumber=1"></a>

but nothing was visible.

I think the pencil icon was missing because of this rule in style-forum.css (removing this rule made it visible, but I don't yet know what side effects it may have caused elsewhere!):

:empty.threadEdit, .posttopic a:empty {

display: none;
}

Hi,

Thanks for the bug report on the Mocha skin. removing that bit of css shouldn't have any side effects.

Honestly I'm having a hard time remembering why we even did that.

Thanks,
Joe D.

Re: Mocha skin - forum post edit link

Thanks Joe D. All seems fine with that rule commented out.

Another minor query: I love the "On/off edit links" function. However it only seems to work temporarily on the current page. Navigating to any other page or refreshing makes the edit links reappear, even though the setting still thinks they are hidden. Is this as expected?

What's the score with the Mocha skin - does it need to be purchased before use/modification?  We don't actually want to use it "as is", but it's got some really nice features and may provide a good starting point for a new project.

Hi,

No, the on/off edit links should work across pages. It sets a cookie for the state of the links. I just tested our demo site for mocha in IE 11 and it's having some issues. We'll get everything fixed up and issue a new release of it.

The license allows you to use the skin for your own purposes provided you include the attribution in the footer. If you purchase a license from us here, then you can remove the attribution from the footer.

HTH,
Joe D.

Hi Joe

You've probably fixed this already, but another thing I spotted... I was wondering why the skin had no submenu... and then I noticed we were getting the "Unable to get property 'msie' of undefined or null reference" error, and found that the sub-menu appeared after adding IncludeJQueryMigrate="true" to <portal:ScriptLoader in layout.master.

Re: Mocha skin - forum post edit link

Hi Crispin,

We've fixed several issues with the Mocha and SwiftBlue skins (mostly related to jquery version upgrades in mojoPortal). The new releases are available on the html5mojoportal codeplex site.

We're working on substantial updates to the webstore to make it more flexible in the skinning area. We're being very careful to ensure there will be no required changes for anyone's existing skins to support our changes to the webstore. Once finished with those updates, we'll release updates to Mocha and SwiftBlue to support the changes. We also have another skin we'll release at the same time.

If you like our skins, please consider rating the releases on the codeplex site.

Thank you,
Joe D.
