artisteer 3 Page (sheet) colors not taking?

Hi,

I just upgraded to artisteer 3 and am having a problem with the page (sheet) color setting.

I selected one of there included style sheets (alphamotors) for my test.  I made 2 changes (1) sheet transparency (none 0%) (2) sheet background color (white)...

Saved the changes, exported it to HTML then imported it into a new Skin on the localhost test site.  I used the artesteer-30headermenu as the basic skin.

When I preview it or change the site to the test skin... Eveything is Black?  The sheet color didn't take!

Got any suggestions or thoughts?  Did I use the wrong basic skin to start with?

Hi Phill,

You should use the Firefox FireBug plugin to determine what CSS is actually being applied to the site.

Also, Joe A. created an Artisteer 3 skin based on Alpha Motors and it is in the mojoPortal release package. You should be able to use it as your starting point, and just add .pagebody{ background: #fff none;} to the style-artisteer-overrides.css file.

HTH,
Joe D.

Hi Joe,

(1) Thanks for the tip... Just to make sure I am on the right track I have copied the artisteer-30alphamotors to a test folder "Test1" so I can safely play with it.

(2) I have opened the site using FireFox, as you suggest, and when I use the tools to look to see which CSS file is being used I do not see what I expected?  What I do see is...

<link href="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jqueryui/1.8.11/themes/ui-darkness/jquery.ui.all.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet">

Which does not make sense to me?

Once I know which I can then implement the real CSS stuff I created using artisteer 3 and start debugging it.

Thanks

Hi Phill,

Are you using the Firebug plugin? It will allow you to select individual elements in the site and then see the rules being applied to that element.

You should be able to modify the artisteer-overrides.css file with your desired changes.

HTH,
Joe D.
