Slurp,

I cannot for the life of me get it. I've tried my little html tricks, pulled the code from the page and tried manipulating the tags, I don't know what else to do. I know it can be done. I really don't want to mess with the table size anymore I have it looking sharp at 25. If I could just get the text to valign in the middle for the 3 items I would be one happy camper. Well, I'm happy any way but I would be ecstatic. Please dedicate your every waking moment to my needs. laugh

All right man, I found the way to do it, I think. I found this board that had it centered and here's how they did, check the source if you want.

Look for this line in public_fourm_summary.pl:

FDRboxPad = 0;

Now change that 0 to whatever you want, I would guess about 7 or 8 would be in the middle. Now keep in mind that width of the fader is only 43, so if you have more than two lines of text it's gonna cut off, so you might want to change those instances of height=43 to something else or change the font size here:

FDRfntSiz = "9pt";

It's up to you man, but that should get ya pretty close.

Oh Yes, the Slurp man.

"It's just like an athlon, The knowledge of what trace contacts to connect with pencil lead for the ultimate O/C!"

That was it.
Recap:

For all who are looking, if you are having a hard time getting your text to center or align middle vertical. The place to do it is here. You don't even have to mess with the code nor will it work well if you do.

My fader table size is 25. I set the

FDRboxPad = 6; (Default is 0 or aligns to top)

I missed this altogether. I was trying to tackle this through the code.

Thanks Slurp!

I've installed it now on my UBB - look:

BoardHell

It's a great hack and I like it alot. But unfortunately it seems to work only with IE. The news don't show up with NS6 - is this only for me or has anybody encountered the same problem??? Opposite to previous posts it works perfectly with my IE5.5

PS: Forgot to mention the Board is in German, but I think you don't need to understand German to see that it doesnt work under NS 6 *g*


some questions are better left unasked ...

No Kidding aside, they look great. Your news fader seems to work great with my IE5.5 too. No problems. NetScape 6 sucks anyhow. Don't worry about it. I found so many idiosyncreses with NS6 and IE5.5 that I gave up trying to get everything to work with both. The fact is Netscape was never a Java compatible browser. I have a java chat room called Volano Chat. Netscape won't even work with that. The stats are that 90 percent use IE. The other 10 percent are divided between NS and the other browsers. So 10percent or less cannot view your news fader. No loss. It's not that I'm a huge fan of Microsoft or anything, but NetScape was never in the market. To many script reading probs amoungst other things.

Hmmm haven't tried it, but in public_forums_summary.pl, changing this line:

# this is the table displayed on regular forum pages
my $Top = qq~

to

# this is the table displayed on regular forum pages
my $Top = qq~$newslinefader

See what happens.

As for changing the fader height, look for the two instances of "43" in the public_forums_summary.pl file and change them to whatever width you want.

Slurpee,

Great hack. Got it to work on my forums but for some reason the news doesn't restart after it gets to the last news item. Is this done on purpose or something that I have done wrong? Hope you can help.

I installed this on my test board, and it all seems to be working fine in the control panel, but when you actually look at it, the display is odd.
http://www.3drealms.com/cgi-bin2/ultimatebb.cgi

Shouldn't the news be listed before the columns that say "Forum | Topics | Posts | etc"? It 'works', but is displayed incorrectly. I probably fubared something, but I'll check out my code changes to make sure.

Check this out - it's a screen dump from my implentation of this hack. If you look above my name on the right side of the screen, it appears that some of the code from the fader portion of the screen is bleeding over onto the column for moderators. (Look above Joe3DR). However, it only appears to be happening in Netscape, not in IE.
