Custom Skin - Problem with Create New Content Page

 

I had a designer create a new skin for me but he never really worked on the admin pages which left some of the elements a little scattered. Take for example the page for adding new content to a page. If you check out the jpg in the link you'll see my top pane, left pane, etc., are aligned down the page instead of horizontally. Can someone point me to the right place to attempt to fix this?

Re: Custom Skin - Problem with Create New Content Page

Hi,

You need the following the style.css file of your skin.

   .pagelayout .addcontent{float: left; margin: 0 0 20px; }
   .pagelayout .panelayout { clear: both; margin: 0 0 20px 0; padding: 0;}
   .pagelayout .panelayout h2 {text-align: center; margin: 0 10px 10px 0;}
   .pagelayout .regularpanes{margin: 0 auto; width: 630px; clear: both;}
   .pagelayout .pane{float: left; clear: none;margin: 20px 0 20px 0; position: relative;}
   .pagelayout .layoutcenter{margin: 20px 30px;}
   .pagelayout .layoutalt1,
   .pagelayout .layoutalt2{float: none;clear: both; width: 190px; margin: 0 auto; position: relative;}
   .pagelayout .altlayoutnotice{margin-bottom: 20px;}
   .pagelayout .panelistbox{position: relative; width: 190px;}
   .pagelayout .pane select {width: 170px; margin-right: 10px;}
   .pagelayout .layoutbuttons{right: 0; top: 5px; position: absolute;}
   .pagelayout .layoutbuttons input{display: block; margin-bottom: 10px;}

If there are a lot of things out of whack with your skin, you should ask your designer to fix them because creating a skin for any CMS should account for things like this.

EDIT: Sorry, I need to clarify myself on that last remark. You are more than welcome to ask us for help and we will help you where possible. I just think your designer/skinner should deliver a finished product to you and that you have the right to complain to him if he didn't.

HTH,
Joe D.

Re: Custom Skin - Problem with Create New Content Page

Thanks Joe that did it.

The skin was created a few years ago and I'm not positive if the problems were there before. We haven't done much with the site unfortunately. I've been digging back into Mojo and I was looking for a little learning experience. However i tried to find the right CSS style for about an hour (probably more) but couldn't find it with the Firebug or Web Developer plugins.

Thanks again.

Oh, okay, in that case, it wasn't a problem when the skin was created. Things change with skinning from time to time. If you recently upgraded your site, you check out the "Important Skin Changes" document.  

HTH,
