Vanilla Integration and Callouts

Recommended Posts

aethernavale

Okay, so I have an odd glitch appearing on my site. The stuff linked here is just for testing, not the actual site in question, but the callout box is an exact duplicate and the basic environment is the same. https://test01.aethernavale.net/ You can see what it looks like here (the callout is placed in the more footer) It looks the same here on MediaWiki integration: https://test01.aethernavale.net/database But with Vanilla we get this: https://test01.aethernavale.net/feedback I can't see a reason why in Firebug... the code looks the same to me. Any ideas for the difference?

For some reason I can't access the last link since it says it's insecure. Have you encountered this issue?

Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.

It is a test server using a self-signed certificate. Because it is a test environment I'm not going to waste money on a real SSL, that is not the issue. Since the eventual production environment will include SSL, the test environment includes it despite being self signed. I am honestly surprised the other two links did not give you errors as well. It is actually easiest to see the difference with the Chrome browser, the callout on the Vanilla page is centered and the alignment of the image is placed in a different location (as a result?). I do not know why the centering is occurring.

The bottom of the site is identical on all three links.

If its just vanilla affected, the vanilla pages have a 'vanilla' body class so you could fix it with a bit of css.

So, I tinkered around with this more in Firebug; I haven't found any CSS option that will fix this error. What does fix the error is opening up firebug and removing the 'vanilla' class from the body tag. Selecting various CSS parameters and modifying them through Firebug only produces limited results ( I am able to get the text to no longer be centered, but the logo remains skewed ). Is there a way I can just remove the vanilla class instead? I haven't seen functionality inhibited by doing so.

I tinkered on the Vanilla page only and admittedly, only tested it on Firefox. This moved the image down, in line with the text: [code]#callout .callout_image img { padding-top: 33px; width: 100%; }[/code] This also worked to align the callout text left: [code].vanilla p { line-height: 1.6em; margin: 1.6em 0; text-align: left; }[/code] I can't say what these will do in other browsers as Firebug only works in Firefox. Please give them a try if you like and let us know if they worked in other browsers.

I found a different way to fix it. I tried to do what you did there with the callout image, but doing so made the image move on all the other pages so that it didn't line up. I just changed a qualifier in the theme from 'vanilla' to 'Vanilla' and that fixed it. Still not sure if I want to go with Vanilla though... the forum is incredibly light on your ability to manage and use it. I really like having a lot more control than what they offer, but we'll see I guess.
