[resolved] Player Bio page using iFeature Theme (7 posts)

    Hi Mark
    I'm able to get the Player Bio page to link from my Team Rosters. When I click a players name from the Team Rosters, I indeed get the player Bio I entered, but it spans all the way across the page, not real professional looking. I read in the notes to edit the plugin's stylesheet (mstw-tr-style.css). I'm able to locate this file using the file view in my FTP client, and I'm happy to edit this file, I guess I'm just a little lost as to what tag to make the adjustments so the player bio doesn't bleed all the way across the page.

    my test site is located oceanbeachgirl.com/teams/purple

    Any information would be kindly appreciated.
    Thank you

    Hi b_hoops,
    Looks like you are doing great. Right, you need to adjust the styles to work correctly within your theme. This can be a bit tricky depending on your theme.

    If you edit mstw-tr-style.css as follows:
    header#player-header {
    color: #24448c;
    background-color: #d972d9;
    max-width: 1020px;
    margin: auto;

    }

    I think that will get you closer to what you want.

    Nehaaaaaaa! That was much closer to what I need. I think I can finagle it from here to play a little nicer with my theme. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. Can't we all just get along??!!!

    FWIW: I didn't realize I could edit the .css file within WordPress by going to the Plugins | Team Rosters | Edit. I tried to FTP over a edited version of the mstw-tr-style.css file with the changes you suggested and then selected overwrite-but the changes didn't seem to take this way, so note to all who might need to edit their mstw-tr-style.css file: edit it WITHIN WordPress plug-in editor, do not just FTP over a different version of the .css file.

    Thanks Mark, if I have further stumbling areas I'll be sure to ask more q's.

    Great to hear it. As for your comments about editting the file, I ALWAYS edit the file (Notepad++) and upload it. That way I can ALWAYS keep a copy of the original, so I can back up if I hose it up. Note that I've ever done that. :) So I'm not sure what you are doing with the FTP upload. Did you refresh the browser? Are you running some sort of cool caching plugin?
    Best,

    BTW, do you use the code/CSS inspector in either Chrome or Firefox? They not only let you inspect the css and see what rules are being used in the cascade, but they let you change the CSS 'on the fly' to sort things out.

    I too use a text editor (EditPlus) rather than editing via WordPress; the colors make it easier to read with EditPlus and NotePad++ is much the same way. Like you, I'm perfect and I've never had to use a backup file :) Truly I established an FTP connection, found the .css file I needed to edit, saved/overwrote the file, then tried to refresh the browser afterwards, it didn't seem to take? Hmmmm..no no cool caching plug-in-but if you know of any I'm all ears.

    I used to use FirePlug w/FF to view all browser tags (CSS, HTML, etc.) in the DOM, right now I just hit F12 on IE to see what's what behind the scenes. I employ this strategy a lot for work-so I was aware of finding elements in this fashion. I rarely make changes (workwise) but perhaps I can do so with this site. Thanks for the tip. :)

    Usually when that happens to me, it turns out that I'm uploading something to the wrong place. But I've never been as smart as the computer, it always seems to do exactly that I tell it to, not what I want it to. :)

    yeah, I usually wait for the computer to tell me everything I'm doing wrong too. It must know, right??? (yeah riiiiiiiiiiight...)

    I'll be uploading your plugins to my clients site (still under construction) to see if my client is interested in using it in the future. I think they will want it-and I'll know a bit more about it when crunch-time emerges..because like the computer that is smarter than we are? Short timelines always emerge!!!
