Rate this content overlaps content on page...

Hi,

I noticed that on pages where the user can "Rate This Page" it is mixed in with the page content.  I have Blog pages where the Writers name appears, that is okay, BUT directly under that is the rating section... to NOT have this mixed up with the content I have to put several spaces at the top of the content in the editor...  Very messy!

Is there a way of setting the margin or space surrounding the "Ratings" so this overlap does not occur?

Thanks
Phill

Hi Phill,

Add this to your css:

.ratingcontainer {
    background-color#EAEAEA;
    border1px solid #CCCCCC;
    margin10px 10px 30px 30px;
    padding10px;
}

Hi Phill,

I think if you use of Fire Bug in Fire Fox browser, you can solve many of your problems about skins and CSS.

For this, I recommend you again that use of Fire bug. I sure you interesting it !!

Best.

Sadegh & Joe D.

Thanks, Joe's solution resolved the Ratings issue perfectly.

For all these additions and overrides could I have created another CSS file (i.e. style-NameofSite-overrides.css) and have it included in with the css combiner?

Thanks guys

Phill

PS

Okay as much as I have Firefox I'll look into it!  I was hoping I could use IE's "Developer Tools"!

Hi Phill,

Yes, you can include all of your changes in a different file and then put a reference to that file in the style.config inside of your skin.

You would simply add the following:

<file>style-NameOfSite-overrides.css</file> above the closing </files> tag.

Phill,

I use of "IE's Developer Tools", and sure that fire bug in firefox is better than Developer Tools in IE.

I using Developer Tools only for problems that happened just in IE.

I hope you use fire bug soon!

Best!

I agree with Sadegh. FireBug is a lot better than the IE Developer Tools.

Re: Rate this content overlaps content on page...

Okay... okay... you guys beet me up enough for one day... I'll download it tonight... oh! its Friday and happy hours I  probably will not be worth a damn after that... so I'll download and install it tomorrow... thanks guys really.

 

I like the idea of having this sites style overrides style sheet so if I create another I know which are the most likely settings to change and not have to try and remember where and in which file each one hangs out in.

Thanks guys

Phill
