First off a posted a reply on your code snippet for hiding free form HTML widgets on my website, for some reason I've having issues with it.. here:

http://guildportal.com/Guild.aspx?GuildID=3780&ForumID=25682&TabID=27537&TopicID=8655930&Page=2


Secondly, Amazing site man, I'm just now beginning to even look at the wealth of information here for making my website look much more top quality than it already is. Happy to have been chosen as a spotlight guild already!

Some of my questions were about some of the nice features you offer on here.. specifically right now in the MMORPGs section such as the Recruitment addon and stuff. Do you plan on making TERA versions of these anytime soon? I know we might be one of the only TERA guilds around here right now but I sure would love to get my hands on some of your work in a TERA format

my website just incase you need it http://www.gravioraguild.com

Hi Socxiety!

I posted a comment in that thread for you

Thanks for the compliment! I've never claimed to be artistic, most of my work here I've chopped up from other people's designs. I really do like your site design and congratulations!

As for making a TERA recruitment box/widget. I'll need to gather more information and some icons. If there is anything you can provide that isn't blantantly obvious information I can gather then please share!

Hmm still having some issues here, maybe to understand exactly that I'm doing this right could you maybe post how the completed code should look to work correctly with your code for the shoutbox added with the code to make the widget hide? Cause I'm pasting it in I take your code for the shoutbox, switch the widget to < > HTML mode and throw it in, then save it, and it works just fine the shoutbox is modified correctly. And Just to make sure I'm doing this part right, I am then supposed to take your code snippet for making it hide and paste it in ... where ? At the end after the other code? is it supposed to be within the code? Before? etc.. just to make sure I'm not mucking anything up here on my end!

Cause when I go into my freeform HTML widget and paste in your code to force it to hide it simply stares back at me defiantly like I didn't do something right, and I thought I knew how to copy and paste lol

Far as the TERA stuff, not really much I can share that you couldn't find yourself easily as you said. Theres like 7 classes and races aren't going to be a huge determining factor in class viability. So really it just comes to class recruiting needs for a widget like that.. and there's no talent specifics either right now to bicker over like in WoW.. so it can be about as basic as possible to accomplish the goals. In future once I know more of TERA PVE progressions and such I can come back and share that with you if you'll want to make Progression addons for TERA and stuff. I know I certainly would love it

Edit:  So I just made an interesting discovery while playing with this trying to find out why it's not working. It appears the box hides, and my shoutbox has a roll over/hover highlight ONLY when I'm NOT logged into my website.. I have no clue why this would be..

Hi Socxiety!

I just added the Tera Recruitment box, I'm not a graphic artist so that's about the best I can do with the icons I found. I'm still not sure why the Archer and Sorcerer have the same class icon, but I'll fix it if you can find a better version. Oh and I found 8 classes o.O... maybe that's why those two icons are the same? LOL

From looking at the code on your home page, everything looks great! The hide this widget code can go anywhere inside the widget, so you did just fine.

As for the mouseover highlighting, I see it as purple now when I am both logged in and not logged in... I'm not sure what you are seeing different, but check it on another browser too.

It seemed you're missing the Archer logo, which I too am having issues finding for some reason! I think this is it though ..

http://mmobook.ru/images/1/18/Tera-archer-logo.jpg


Though it's not the best picture?

Anyways I'm still not seeing it work right in Firefox, or Chrome.. and I just logged into my alternate GP account I use for troubleshooting and it appears it work on that one when I'm logged in because I'm not an accepted Member of the guild.. so only when you're a member of guild does it not display correctly both the widget box and the hovering color.. really odd o.0

Also thanks for your work on the TERA recruitment box

Edit: Ok the Mystery DEEPENS now.. I asked one of my members to look at it and they see it perfectly normal. I then logged onto my alt account, made it a member, and IT sees it normally. But my admin account on the website my main account does NOT see it correctly. Color me CONFUSED!

so I've tracked down the reason I'm having so many troubles with this! It's my script for my Mumble to display our mumble status! Any chance you can look at this and devise any clue why this is Mottie?


Also, on an unrelated note. Is there any chance you have any kind of helpful method to make Quotes work better in these forums? Right now theres no graphic to wrap around the quoted text or nothing it just says Mottie said: blah blah blah and thus it can be hard to distinguish whats a quote and where the next persons response to it begins? This seems very odd to me! any help would be appreciated!

Hi Socxiety!

I think you're going to need to put all of the Mumble code into a new page.
  • Open up a text editor
  • Copy the code below (Ctrl-C)
<html><head>
<title>Mumble Status</title>
</head><body>

<!-- Add Mumble code here -->

</body></html>
  • Paste it (Ctrl-V) into your editor
  • Add your Mumble code
  • Save the page to your desktop with a ".htm" ending
  • Upload this page to your file area
  • Once it is shown in the file manager, right click on the link and choose copy link location
  • Now on your Home page add an Embedded page widget (Control Panel > Pages & Content > Home > Click [Add Widget])
  • Find Embedded Page then click [+] Add to Site
  • Name it, then click [ Save New Widget ]
  • Widget was added, blah blah blah... click [Yes]
  • Paste the Embedded Page URL in the box
  • Pick a page Height... maybe something around 150px;
  • Click [Save]
As for the quotes... I'm not sure what you mean:

While you are editing a forum post... it's not formatted so it may be harder to tell.

Well that looks even better than even our forums its like quoting on the GP forums by default is very messy since it's hard to distinguish the difference between what the quote was the beginning of the persons post.. for example..



Thats what it looks like right now, its just some text kind of hanging there in the post.. what I wish it would look more like for a cleaner presentation is something more like..



This where you can clearly see its a quote and its wrapped in a box that clearly sections it off from the rest of the post. Making a much cleaner and less confusing presentation of quoting in general. Also I find it odd quoting tries to pull that bar from our website making an odd double bar affect o.0 Thanks again Mottie!

And the embedded thingy worked beautifully Mottie, you sir are a genius face! Don't know how I'd get this crap to ever work without you, much appreciated.

Edit: Eep, starting to feel like I'm a pain in the arse but I found another small problem. When I do the embed it works great but for some reason now all the names in my Mumble viewer are in black text and thus you can't see them on the black background. No clue why this change suddenly occured o.0 Going to try to figure it out if I don't hear from you when I get back in few hours. Sorry for being a pain!

Hi Socxiety!

You're not bugging me, pain in the arse maybe, but not bugging me LOL - j/k...

Anyway, in your embedded page, just add this under the <title> and above the </head>:
<style type="text/css">
 body { background: #000; color: #ddd; }
  #mumbleViewer a.mumbleChannel, #mumbleViewer a.mumbleChannel:visited { color: #dddddd; }
</style>
The "!important" flag overrides the default Mumble coloring.

Oh, and sorry... this is the CSS I have for my Help Site Quotes - add it to your Custom CSS (Control Panel > Custom HTML & Script > Custom CSS > CSS Additions to Standard tab)
.MessageBodyCell1 .quoteTitle {
 padding: 10px;
 background: #000 url(http://www.axiomfiles.com/Files/278466/theme-quotes.png) right center no-repeat;
 border: #444 1px solid;
}
.MessageBodyCell1 .quoteContainer {
 background: #2a1011 !important;
 border: #444 1px solid;
 border-top-width: 0;
 margin: 0;
}
.MessageBodyCell1 .quoteBody {
 background: transparent url();
 padding: 20px !important;
}
