Poker1 log of changes and additions: 2010-04

NOTE: Mike Caro made this log public on the home page (along with the to-do list), but it’s primarily used internally at Poker1. That’s why you might get that "TMI" feeling ("Too Much Information").

Changed entries or pages

Fixed some card graphics in entries (actually none discovered today). Early entries with misaligned card graphics or remaining tiny “.gif” files, instead of Unicode text suits, may remain, but none could be immediately found. Remaining card-suit glitches will be fixed as found or reported.

Investigating problem with Firefox browser showing gray fonts on entries where black is expected and showing underlined links where “text-decoration: none” is specified

  • Checked body color for entries in main theme CSS file (style sheet): Correctly set to “color: #000000;” (black)
  • Activated older theme to see if problem persisted: No change in Firefox body color on entries (still gray, instead of intended black). Reactivated current theme (P1 normal — test).
  • Changed CSS color of links in entries to black to test whether Firefox is carrying over the color change to the following text: No change in color, still gray. Reactivated previous CSS (style sheet).
  • Tested adding “color: #000000;” explicitly to art-sheet-body in CSS. No change. Modification removed.
  • Tested adding “color: #000000;” explicitly to all meaningful CSS locations (and overriding gray colors temporarily by commenting the previous ones out, where applicable): art-Sheet (two instances), art-Post (two instances), art-Post-body,  art-PolstHeaderIcon, art-PostHeader a:link (to see if there’s a carryover to the body text), art-PostContent p, art-Footer art-Footer-text, art-page-footer (including art-page-footer a, art-page-footer a:link, art-page-footer a:visited, and art-page-footer a:hover), art-page-footer (standalone instance), and commentform textarea, RESULT: No effect on body text – still gray in Firefox. Reverted to previous CSS.
  • TEMPORARY FIX. Changed the color of the “Here is the entry you selected” notice that appears above posts from gray to black in single.php to see if the color carries over to the body text in Firefox. RESULT: Font correctly changed from gray to black in Chrome, Internet Explorer, Opera, Safari, and Firefox. It may be necessary for users to clear browser caches to see the change immediately.
  • ISSUE RESOLVED FOR FIREFOX FONT COLOR. Reverted to color gray for “Here is the entry you selected” in single php, but added explicit return to black after “Poker1.com.” Previous PHP code was:

         <div class="navigation">
         <div class="alignleft"><?php echo "<font color=\"gray\">&#8595; Here is the entry you selected! &#8595;"; ?></div>
         <div class="alignright"><?php echo "Poker1.com"; ?></div>

    Replacement code is:

        <div class="navigation">
        <div class="alignleft"><?php echo "<font color=\"gray\">&#8595; Here is the entry you selected! &#8595;"; ?></div>
        <div class="alignright"><?php echo "Poker1.com<font color=\"black\">"; ?></div>

    Less important issue with Firefox underlining links that are set to NOT underline in CSS (such as on INDEX menu page in the top box) also resolved (see below).

Changed link format in previous block quote for sub-indexes listed at the top of the INDEX page (top menu). They now show as underlined links and are not inside a block quote. This will make other browsers display the links consistent with Firefox, which is currently underlining them, as specified for h3 headings, despite CSS code that specifies no underlines. It has been decided that underlines are better for consistency with how links are presented in other elements at Poker1, even though they seemed less attractive underlined within the sub-index block quote. Functionality and consistency have been chosen over style in this case, and the visual result has been deemed to be only marginally less attractive. Sub-index links on INDEX page are now set to “paragraph” style (not h3), in bold, and not within a block quote.
