# Template talk:Chalkboard

Outset border is cool, thanks Toast. What this really needs, if anybody knows how, is to make it so that links within the chalkboard come out in a different colour (e.g. yellow) since blue links don't look great against the black background & white text.

Didn't the border used to be solid dark brown all around? It looks weird now for some reason... ħuman 20:19, 12 January 2009 (EST)
Is the font suppose to look hand written because it doesn't to me? - User $\scriptstyle h/2\hbar$ 20:21, 12 January 2009 (EST)
Yes, it's comic sans, like my sig. Or at least, I think it is, because that's what it looks like to me. ħuman 20:27, 12 January 2009 (EST)
It doesn't look like that to me. But on the bright side it is about 7 pt font. - User $\scriptstyle h/2\hbar$ 20:45, 12 January 2009 (EST)

The lime colored links looked good. blue or purple on black are awful :( "Grey" was ok. 101010 is almost black, try, I dunno, 404040? ħuman 20:43, 12 January 2009 (EST)

Yeah, but as a blackboard (which is the idea), it still looks way better in either black or v dark grey. WeaseloidMethinks it is a Weasel 20:55, 12 January 2009 (EST)
OK, I made an alternative link colour scheme for black backgrounds. If someone with colour sense wants to swap the colours round, please feel free. --JeevesMkII 21:07, 12 January 2009 (EST)
The colours you've chosen look like they would be OK, but it doesn't seem to be working. It's still showing standard link colours. WeaseloidMethinks it is a Weasel 21:16, 12 January 2009 (EST)
'Cos you changed "class" to "style". Fixed. --JeevesMkII 21:19, 12 January 2009 (EST)

OK, but in Internet Explorer, I still see blue or purple links. I just took a look at it through Firefox & it's showing the new colours (yellow/lime), just not in IE. Any suggestions? WeaseloidMethinks it is a Weasel 21:59, 12 January 2009 (EST)

Don't use IE?  (with butter!) talk to Toast 22:02, 12 January 2009 (EST)
It's OK now. Just needed to relaunch IE or reset with ctrl+F5. WeaseloidMethinks it is a Weasel 22:07, 12 January 2009 (EST)
How can one adapt the template to change the link color? --"ConservapediaUndergroundResistorrecent changes patroller 21:35, 3 February 2009 (EST)
Can't with this one I'm afraid. WeaseloidMethinks it is a Weasel 21:46, 3 February 2009 (EST)
Copy the source and figure it out in a sandbox? ħuman 00:03, 4 February 2009 (EST)
The link colours are created by code in the common.css. - User $\scriptstyle h/2\hbar$ 00:08, 4 February 2009 (EST)
Surely CUR can overcome that trivial obstacle? ħuman 00:25, 4 February 2009 (EST)
He could create cur-color-links or something, and then stick it in as a parameter with secondary-color-links as the default so when he transcludes it he can just set the parameter. However common.css is going to get crowded if everyone did that. - User $\scriptstyle h/2\hbar$ 00:32, 4 February 2009 (EST)
How did the Weasel do it? --"ConservapediaUndergroundResistorrecent changes patroller 14:06, 4 February 2009 (EST)
Weasel didn't do it, somebody else did (Nx I think?). It involves setting up an alternate color scheme in the site data, just for the links here, so it's something that probably shouldn't be done too often. What colour links are you trying to get? WeaseloidMethinks it is a Weasel 14:16, 4 February 2009 (EST)
I want to get rid of the yellow. It's ugly. I was going to replace it with, say, royal blue. --"ConservapediaUndergroundResistorrecent changes patroller 14:19, 4 February 2009 (EST)

## Parameters

Can we do this a bit clever than 2 3 4 5, like title, width, position, height, textsize, etc. ? - User $\scriptstyle h/2\hbar$ 20:52, 14 January 2009 (EST)

If you know how, go right ahead. I don't. I'm not sure how often most of these parameters will get used, so I doubt it's a big issue. Sorry about needing to modify your page after the last change, but I can't anticipate much else needing to be changed with this, so I'll leave it up to others whether to fiddle with it more. WeaseloidMethinks it is a Weasel 20:57, 14 January 2009 (EST)
It is not the page modification it is the inefficiency that bothers me. - User $\scriptstyle h/2\hbar$ 21:02, 14 January 2009 (EST)
Make it so; Mister Pi.  (Toast) and marmalade 14:52, 4 February 2009 (EST)
He(she?) did. Ages ago. WeaseloidMethinks it is a Weasel 15:08, 4 February 2009 (EST)
