Author Topic: Adding Colors?  (Read 2345 times)

I found this in a locked thread and I was wondering if this was still possible to do.

Adding color is a 2 part process....the first part is to actually add the color to the style sheets....
Go into newstyle.css AND yarbrough.css...and add the following two lines to the bottom:

.colLtPink  { color: #FFCCFF; }
.colDkPink  { color: #FF80FF; }

After that, you must get the appoencode function to recognize the color....to do this, pick 2 symbols which you would like to use for light and dark pink...

For the purpose of this post I'll use '8' for dark pink and '*' for light pink.....Then go into common.php, line 351...notice the "switch" statement with all of the cases...add the following lines... between the case ')' and the case 'c' code....

case "8":
    if ($nestedtags[font]) $output.="</span>";
    else $nestedtags[font]=true;
    $output.="<span class='colDkPink'>";
case "*":
    if ($nestedtags[font]) $output.="</span>";
    else $nestedtags[font]=true;
    $output.="<span class='colLtPink'>";

Once you do that, you should be able to type `8 or `* in any formatted text and display the text in "pink"...

Apparently from looking in those files, it's not entirely the same process, but I could figure out how to do the first part in the stylesheet pages.  I just can't find the section that links the colors to the characters...

Well now these changes would be made in a couple other areas...

1. lib/output.php
2. lib/commentary.php
3. whatever.css

These areas being changed will look very close to what was originally posted just the functions are seperated now.

I'm guessing there has to be one more place to change, because that didn't do it all...

I added the colors to the keys: 89*(  and the Qq colors don't seem to want to work always either...

//edit - Answering my own question

There's some code in the "sanitize.php" that needs to be slightly altered to allow this as well.  That seems to have done it for me.
