View Full Version : Question/problem with vB3 style integration
July 6th, 2004, 07:53 PM
The RP integration with the vB3 styles causes problems with the display of the gradient backgrounds that are used for the category strips. It's more obvious when custom images are used. The background images are used for the strips and again for the links. Is there a fix for this?
(PP has the same problem and has for a while)

Well That depends on the stylesheet used. Photopost and Reviewpost have the same templates so and it just looks the same as VB here and every site I have seen
Let's remember most of the problems your talking about are stylesheet related. If someone creates a stylesheet with a gradient that is 10px wide say by 50px high and the column you are filling is 60px high your going to have either an empty space or a repeat of the image. This is all in the style CSS not photopost.
What you are stating is not a bug in our program. You state is has been this way for a while. We just introduced style integration a little over a month ago. We simply match class calls between the products. If the problem is in your stylesheet how is it a photopost problem?

Here is a UBBThreads test site to compare against

Here is a more obvious example. http://www.modernengineuity.com/img/grads.jpg
The problem, to me, seems to be the use of the VB stylesheets being integrated with PP/RP. The gradients are being used again for the inner cells. Looking through PhotoPostDev.Com, and all the integration examples, there don't seem to be any gradients used. So the problem isn't showing there. I could go through and edit all the templates, except for the problem here: http://www.photopost.com/members/forum/showthread.php?t=109041 (which still hasn't been addressed), even though it shouldn't be necessary if the inegration was done correctly.
BTW, I'm still using the same gradient sizes and implimentation as the default vB3 style.

I use gradients on my Photopost
The default VB install uses gradients and looks fine.
The point I am saying though is that depending on the gradients you are trying to use you may need to tweak things. I have gradients throughout my menubar and tdnothumb just like your gradients and mine look good.
I know your issue though ;) Your using horizontal gradients.
I have one tweak that might work for you
Lines 226-229 od categories.tmpl change to this

I have tweaked some templates for you. Let me know if these solve your problem. They should make no difference to a normal display but may help with horizontal gradients.

Thanks for the files. I had already made a few of those changes and the rest worked as well. There are a few mor that will have to me changed as well.
I checked out you last link and even though it's not a vb3 integration you seem to be having the same issue with the "Recent Photos: last day last 7 days last 14 days all images' links.
Any resolution on this issue: http://www.photopost.com/members/forum/showthread.php?t=109041
