Episode page changes? Yuk!

Those pages had a better visual impact when the episode info box and screen cap were aligned to the right of the page, opposite the contenets box. It now looks awkward and uncoventional and a little amateurish. The original format was superior. If anybody agrees could it be changed back? I wouldn't know how to so I'll leave that to someone else! :-) Jxh487 10:11, 21 August 2006 (CDT)Jxh487

Yeah. I know. Change the the "bsgbook" for now. I am working on it as fast as I can. ;-) --Shane (T - C - E) 10:30, 21 August 2006 (CDT)
Can a MySQL query be done to change everyone on Myskin to BSGbook? --Mercifull (Talk/Contribs) 10:37, 21 August 2006 (CDT)
Nope. :( --Shane (T - C - E) 10:38, 21 August 2006 (CDT)
Well... One can. Just means Joe has to do it. --Mercifull (Talk/Contribs) 10:48, 21 August 2006 (CDT)
No, I have access to the database, execept the way "preferences" are saved it can't be done. --Shane (T - C - E) 14:47, 21 August 2006 (CDT)

Other tidbits!

It was more intuitive when the search bar was below the Navigation panel, as this means you don't have to scroll down to quick search. The first characters of the headers on the panels for Projects and Community, respectively, are not capitalised. Headers should always be capitalised. Also the links bar on the left seems narrower than before, it looks squahed and clunky, the BSG logos before each header could do with a black blackgrnd, and my final nitpick is that these logos push the headers out of their centering, so perhaps a left-handed alignment would tidy it up! -) I'm sorry that I'm moaning rather than actively rectifying these faults, it's just that I havent a clue as to how to change things! Thanks, James. Jxh487 16:34, 21 August 2006 (CDT)jxh487

To sum up the ideas.. move the "search" below the Navigation "box". What links? Are we talking "In other languages"? Some links are just long and they are stuck in those sizes of boxs. The boxes will never resize. I am sure about the little icons. The icons seems to be fine for me without a black background. Are you using I.E. or FireFox or Other? The "upper" case I will get someone to fix. I noticed that also. :) --Shane (T - C - E) 16:39, 21 August 2006 (CDT)
The upper case issue has been fixed. -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate 20:07, 21 August 2006 (CDT)
I'm using the black background and all the icons have a really ugly blue background behind them. Maybe a transparent background? --Talos 20:24, 21 August 2006 (CDT)
What skin are you using? bsgbook? myskin? monobook? --Shane (T - C - E) 20:37, 21 August 2006 (CDT)
Myskin but BSGbook has the same problem. --Talos 21:16, 21 August 2006 (CDT)
IE or FireFox? IE still has a problem rendering png files. That could be the source of the problem. Think you can upload a screenshot of the affected area? --Shane (T - C - E) 21:17, 21 August 2006 (CDT)
IE, I'll upload a screenshot in a few minutes. --Talos 22:00, 21 August 2006 (CDT)
pic of problem

By the way, now there are no boxes on most pages on Myskin, it's really messed up. --Talos 22:08, 21 August 2006 (CDT)

yeah. It's just a skin problem. That skin, what I am calling "bsgorginial" (since it was the first skin on here) I am still coding so those images won't show up. It would show just like it did before. Right now the style sheet that is upload will do that. I suggest switching templates until I can finsh the skin and send them to Joe for an update. --Shane (T - C - E) 22:12, 21 August 2006 (CDT)

class usermessage

Shane, i'm using the bsgbook and noticed that the background for the "new message" box has this yellow-orange background to it. The class is "usermessage". -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate 22:03, 22 August 2006 (CDT)

ya. I got the updated CSS and style sheet. It has been fixed in my version. Been waiting for ya to upload. Find me on Gtalk real quick. --Shane (T - C - E) 22:06, 22 August 2006 (CDT)
Does it work now? -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate 22:40, 22 August 2006 (CDT)

New Message

Is this what you needed? Appears Spence had departed. --FrankieG 18:16, 23 August 2006 (CDT)

Message received. --Spencerian 11:21, 24 August 2006 (CDT)

Thank you Shane

Wow. I don't know how you whizzes do it, but that was amazing what you did with my edit counts and the move. I just really wanted to thank you for that. I n fact, this thanks is so big it didn't seem right to put it on my talk page. I just wanted to thank you A LOT for taking time out of your busy schedule to help me. I realized that you taking the time to do the move must have delayed the Style Update (which is STELLAR, if I do say so myself. Its really given good ol' BSWiki a look all its own and I'm lovin' it) and I wanted to thank you for allowing some time to help me. I feel that you should be recognized, so as a reward I've sent you this police video clip. It's yours to enjoy, so watch it and reap the rewards of helping another user. Cheers! (and no, that is not a new account. That's just me giving my username a spruce up) -- Homeworld - To the Impossible.

Horizontal rules and boxes

Horizontal rules seem to run under boxes, e.g. on Kara Thrace and my userpage. This is only perceptible with the BsgMonoBook theme, as rules and the backgrounds of the boxes are the same color in BsgBook. I suppose the background on BsgMonoBook has been omitted or made transparent. --CalculatinAvatar(C-T) 23:09, 23 August 2006 (CDT)

yep. I sent joe a fix. It's forced to be white when it's uploaded. :) --Shane (T - C - E) 23:12, 23 August 2006 (CDT)
Thank you. --CalculatinAvatar(C-T) 14:33, 24 August 2006 (CDT)

Edit toolbar

I've lost my edit toolbar. Is this related to the changes or have I done something? --FrankieG 13:50, 25 August 2006 (CDT)

Does this help "IE error 'mwEditButtons.length' is null or not an object"? Thanks for any help. --FrankieG 20:24, 25 August 2006 (CDT)
Just by checking.. did you change your skin to either BsgBook or BsgMonoBook? Might have been that .js file under your name. Do a hard refresh. --Shane (T - C - E) 20:27, 25 August 2006 (CDT)
