Hi,

Yup, Voting the poll now works!

Just noticed another thing. In your left side, the Twitter Follower with counts. That image is bothering me like crazy with the jagged white edges. The maker of that clearly exported a PNG graphic file with white edges.



I remember on his website he had the original file.

Give me a few minutes and I will come up with a decent version without the jagged white edges.

that would be awesome, i dont like the image either...

do you know how to get it on an invisible modual? (with out the black and blue around it)

Would I have to create a new kind of module for that? or is there one i could find a way to copy and paste into my template easily?


also, the other twitter (tweet this) button, I would like to make that on an invisible background too, any ideas?

thank you for your continuous help with my site

Emily

OK, created a little personalized "follow me" button, now with proper transparency so you shouldn't see the jagged white edges.

There is a zip file attached called "follow_me.zip". Click on that file to download it. Unpack this on your computer and you should get a file named. "follow_me.png"

Now with FTP, upload this file to the folder: modules/mod_tweetfollower/

When you are asked to overwrite the already existing file, click yes. Refresh your website page and you should see your more personalized and non-jagged edged tweet follower picture.

To make an "invisible" module in 99% percent of the cases the following trick can be used:

In most (unfortunately not all) modules, when you go to that module in the administrator pages, in the module parameters there is a field called "module class suffix".

Some templates come with special suffixes so that you can use that field to have a red/green/orange module. But you can also use it to get rid of the graphics around that module. A trick I often use is to put -none in the module class suffix field.

I know the "tweet this" module has the module class suffix field (see screenshot). I can't remember if the Tweet Follow module has it. But if it has, you can use the trick.

Yes! that graphic looks much better!

Before I forget, when you use the -none trick, also set "Show Title" of that particular module to "No".

That short cut isn't working for disabling the module background

Nope

It looks like artisteer (as far as I can see you created the template with that Artisteer %#$%^@ - Excuse me for my French) has a peculiar way of dealing with modules. No matter what you do, the trick has no influence.

Can you send me the following files?

in the folder: /templates/blue2template/ the file index.php

and in the same folder, the file templateDetails.xml

You can put those 2 in zip file and in this forum attach them by using the "Upload attachment" under the text edit screen in the forum. Choose/browse to the zip file you created and then click on "Add the file"
