I can see on your profile page one of your postings: on SCP foundation:
http://www.scp-wiki.net/forum/t-3855474/october-2017-intros-writers#post-3610006

I think, since this date something on your machine/system/browser has changed ( Flash allowed? cookied allowed?)
At this date a login was possible and a post on the SCP forum.

Question: How have you posted here ? with "login" first of course.. and than?

Are you able to go to the readmarker scp wiki?
Or put it new in a complete new browser-window after login! the wikidot stores in cookies your login status and remember. it the next time.
Are your 3.party cookies allowed? http://community.wikidot.com/help:emergency-help/comments/show?from=activities#toc13

I'm worried that this question doesn't belong in this forum but here goes: I don't really plan on making a wikidot, but I've decided to join the scp wikidot, and I've been accepted and everything, but now I've come to another hurdle… logging in. I put in my username and password, but when I get back to the page that I want to be logged in on, nothing changes even if I refresh.
It goes a bit like this:
1. I click "Log in" and a popup tab is brought up.
2. I put in all my details, then click log in, the tab is deleted, and I'm sent to the original tab.
3. Nothing's changed on the original tab so I reload. Again nothing changes.
This is pretty annoying, and I'd like to fix it ASAP.

If you've already put a lot of work into your existing wiki, then it's worthwhile sticking with the theme you're using for now. It can be converted later.

But if you're happy to start over, I would recommend starting with one of the bootstrap templates.

Wikidot recently improved the layout of the new site form (a couple weeks ago), so it is easier to see the distinction between each template now. Here are the bootstrap-compatible ones:

  • Standard Template (located at the very top of the list)
  • Notebook Template (second-last, under "+ Show more")
  • Blog Template (last one, under "+ Show more")

All of the others use an older-style theme, which can be converted to use bootstrap later. But if you're new, I'd recommend starting with bootstrap from the outset.

Just when you think you got things figured out you find another rabbit whole to go down.

Thanks that is exactly what I needed and no I have to start a new with the bootstrap template :)

Re: Modlue ListPages by StebbiStebbi, 17 Oct 2017 23:35

@Rednal: Excellent. Let us know if you have any more questions :)

@Battlesquid: I'm sure I've made sillier mistakes myself :P

Okay, this works (and makes sense) now. XD Thank you both for your help - I really appreciate it!

Re: Editing URL Colors by RednalRednal, 17 Oct 2017 23:20

Yeah, I had just caught that right as you posted! Thanks for pointing that out :)

Re: Editing URL Colors by BattlesquidBattlesquid, 17 Oct 2017 23:15

There is a slight error in your code Battlesquid.

You used the ID selector in the CSS module:

#redtext

But you referenced it as a class name when surrounding the links.

The solution is to modify Battlesquid's CSS module slightly:

FROM THIS:

[[module CSS]]
#redtext a {
    color: #ff0000;
}
#redtext a:hover {
    color: #c40000;
}
[[/module]]

TO THIS:
[[module CSS]]
.redtext a {
    color: #ff0000;
}
.redtext a:hover {
    color: #c40000;
}
[[/module]]

Note that I've changed "#redtext" to ".redtext"

Once you do that, it should take effect on the other change you already made:

[[div class="redtext"]]
link 1
link 2
link 3
[[/div]]

REMEMBER: Refresh without cache to test theme changes, otherwise your browser may not show the change immediately.
Instructions for multiple browsers can be found here.

Again, I don't think modifying the CSS theme will be necessary. We can always use the !important modifier to ensure our CSS module change takes effect, since you only want this change to affect one page and not other pages on your website. Editing the theme (to remove the a tag definitions) will affect other pages, too.

So if the above change (from "#redtext" to ".redtext" in the CSS module) does not have an impact, try this instead:

[[module CSS]]
.redtext a {
    color: #ff0000 !important;
}
.redtext a:hover {
    color: #c40000 !important;
}
[[/module]]

The only change above is adding the !important modifier. However, use this only if the first one above does not work. It is best to use the modifier only when it's explicitly required.

Re: Editing URL Colors by leigerleiger, 17 Oct 2017 23:11

Would you mind letting me join your site so I can check it out? It would help to assess the problem better :)

EDIT: Sorry, I used a "#" instead of a period. The correct code should be:

.redtext a {
color: #ff0000;
}
.redtext a:hover
{
color: #c40000;
}

Using "#" will affect CSS that is part of the site structure, but using a period will create a custom selector. My bad :P

Re: Editing URL Colors by BattlesquidBattlesquid, 17 Oct 2017 20:53

I found the code for my theme, deleted the #a{} section coloring the links, saved and installed it, checked… and still nothing. It appears that I am very bad at adding basic code, missing something that ought to be obvious, or dealing with a system that doesn't like what ought to be simple. XD;

Re: Editing URL Colors by RednalRednal, 17 Oct 2017 20:09

As leigerleiger mentioned, the site CSS shouldn't affect the link CSS (except in some cases), but it may be doing so here. Try saving the theme as a custom CSS style, then remove the #a{} selector (make sure to choose the theme in the "You" tab).

A column layout? A solution for this is to have a parent div that sorts the links in a column layout, then have child divs that style the link colors. Something like this:

[[div style="column-count:2;"]]
[[div class="redtext"]]
//links//
[[/div]]
[[/div]]

Hope this helps, let us know if it doesn't :)

Re: Editing URL Colors by BattlesquidBattlesquid, 17 Oct 2017 19:37

Hmm… the CSS Module doesn't seem to be working. Either that or the way I'm trying to add it to the page is still wrong, though I followed that text exactly.

I've tried both creating a separate div and including it together as part of the column, with the following code:

[[div style="float:left; width: 20%; padding: 0 2%" class="redtext"]]

Neither worked.

Of note, the code also failed to affect the plain black text.

Is it possible something in the main theme is overriding this and stopping it from working? I feel like that shouldn't be the case - I mean, what's the point of a CSS Module to add code if the base stuff just shuts it down? - but I honestly don't know enough about coding to diagnose the exact problem here.

I appreciate you helping me through this, at least, even if it isn't getting solved as easily as any of us would like. XD;

Re: Editing URL Colors by RednalRednal, 17 Oct 2017 17:07

This should work

[[module CSS]]
#redtext a {
color: #ff0000;
}
#redtext a:hover
{
color: #c40000;
}
[[/module]]

And then you would put the group of links in a div like this.

[[div class="redtext"]]
link 1
link 2
link 3
[[/div]]

Don't forget that you can still add your own rules for the links if you'd like :)

Re: Editing URL Colors by BattlesquidBattlesquid, 17 Oct 2017 16:05

I'm planning to keep links of the same color together in large, obvious sections, as in the example image I provided. My main goal here is to provide links to related - but separate - groups of content, and one of my site's users suggested that having differently-colored URLs for each major section would make it easier for people to use (especially with the visual density of the four column format I may end up implementing - different colors would definitely make that easier).

Can you show me an example of Battlesquid's code where it would generate, say, red (ff0000) text? If it needs a name anywhere, let's keep it simple and call it "redtext".

Re: Editing URL Colors by RednalRednal, 17 Oct 2017 15:03

I'm not sure I agree with the need to modify the existing theme. The CSS module should effectively allow us to override anything we need.

But before I suggest any alternatives… Rednal… will the link colours be in the same layout as you've demonstrated in your image, or is it possible to have link colours mixed together?

Example 1

Blue Link 1
Blue Link 2
Red Link A
Blue Link 3
Red Link B
Green Link #

Example 2

Blue Link 1
Blue Link 2
Blue Link 3
Red Link A
Red Link B
Red Link C

If there is a chance that you'll want to place the links anywhere, you might want to add the class directly to the link rather than using a surrounding div, as this would give the greatest flexibility.

But if you're likely to only add them in the same way as your screenshot, grouped together, then Battlesquid's suggestion of surrounding them in a div would be the way to go.

We can provide specific instructions if there is anything you're unsure of. We've all been at that point at some time or another :)
