GuildWiki:Wintersday/Wiki decorations

From GuildWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Plan: To make the Wiki look more Wintersdayish.

Current ideas[edit source]

  • The GuildWiki icon: Change to Peppermint Shield with Candy Canes behind it (a Candy Cane Staff seems most fitting)
  • Change the favicon to a Birthday Present icon
  • Have icicles hanging off the top of the page
  • Javascript snowball rolls across main page
  • Something with snow (maybe change site background image to snow?)
  • ...(propose on talk)

Current look[edit source]

I'd like this to be a TC, i.e. the whole wiki would be reskinned to use this. Here is a demo (shrunk 50%) to see how it would look like.

Depending on your skin setting, add @import "http://guildwars.wikia.com/index.php?title=User:M.mendel/monobook.css&action=raw&ctype=text/css" to Special:MyPage/monobook.css or @import "http://guildwars.wikia.com/index.php?title=User:M.mendel/monaco.css&action=raw&ctype=text/css" to Special:MyPage/monaco.css (default skin) to be able to always preview the latest tweaks of this skin yourself. --◄mendel► 03:00, 7 December 2008 (UTC)

Various workarounds[edit source]

There are various workarounds posted on this article's talk page, adapting the wintersday theme to work around some bugs that have come up, including browser slowdown, image shear, and black areas on the sidebar when scrolling.

Disabling[edit source]

We hope you enjoy the decorations, but if they are too distracting for you or making your browser perform sluggishly, follow these simple instructions to disable them.

The simplest way to completely remove all the new backgrounds is to change your skin (in your preferences) to something other than Monobook or one of the Monaco skins. Uncheck the "let admins override my skin choice" checkbox.

You must be registered and logged in for this to work. To keep the skin and disable the wintery background images, use this:

  • If you just want to improve your browser's performance, you can get rid of the full-page background (the bluish-white one) with this line.
body { background: #f9f9f9 url(headbg.jpg) 0 0 no-repeat; }
  • If the article background image is making text hard to read, use these lines.
div#content { background: white; }
div#article { background: white; }
  • If the icy boxes now disturb you, remove them with
table#toc, table.stdt, table.qr, table.infobox, table.skillbox, div.thumbinner  { background:white; }

Depending on which skin you are using, you will need to edit a different .css file. Copy the above line(s) to your .css file, save, and follow the instructions at the top of the .css page.

  • Click here if you are using the Monaco skin. (Unless you have changed the skin in your preferences, this is the skin you are using.)
  • Click here if you are using the Monobook skin.
