ocPortal 9

This has probably already been answered somewhere, but my brain refuses to acknowledge it. So if you could calmly give me a good slap against the head, I'd appreciate it!

Anyway, first off, my lovely boxes have disappeared and now my menus blend in with my site background! ACK! So, how do I get those back?



Also, lets talk about shoutboxes. I miss my old shoutbox. Now what I have is a shoutbox that only displays part of messages, has space taking mini boxes inside around each message, and while has a nice hover over effect, that diminishes usability for eye candy that doesn't really fit my site and my users. How do I get the old look of the shoutbox back?

BTW - here is what it looks like right now. Yucky isn't it?

Yes, menus – side_stored_menu caption param is not called title, for consistency with other blocks.

In BLOCK_SIDE_SHOUTBOX_MESSAGE change {$TRUNCATE_LEFT,{MESSAGE},92,1,1} to just {MESSAGE}.

OK, the shoutbox was a good quick fix, thanks! My tired brain appreciates it!

But…

While I think I understand what you are saying here, how do I fix it? I mean, I can't even edit the menus it seems….

Hold on, let me try looking in zone editor for the fix….

Ok, yup. The answer was in Zone Editor. Just had to edit in there to add the titles, and "poof" fixed. Thanks!

Now, I just gotta correct the

ocPortal said

An image code (treenav) was referenced that does not exist

and

ocPortal said

A parameter, TREE, is referenced in the template, OCF_FORUM, but not passed

errors and I'll be set… I think.

Time for breakfast!

Yeah, it was just a matter of finding it, which I did after breakfast!

It is in OCF_FORUM.tpl for those interested.
