[Stylesheet] gtsoftbox

Postby gtanuel » Wed Oct 26, 2005 2:50 am

gtsoftbox v1.02 for GreatNews v1.0.0.376+
(Last updated: 12 Dec 2006)
  • Always 1 column
  • Channel/feed logo is hidden
  • Transparency (unread items are opaque, read items are translucent)
  • Blue & Silver color
  • Each color has 4 styles:
    Normal, Normal without images, Header-only, Header-only with rounded corner
  • Variable font size (Ctrl + Wheel-scroll) (Not working in IE7)
  • Button style for Paging items (|<, Previous, Page n/n, Next, >|, x10) and Feature links (Label This, +Del.icio.us, etc.)
  • Non-clickable paging items are dimmed
  • Easily modified (using CSS @import), e.g. to change the color
  • Supports Mozilla engine
Installation procedure:
  1. Download the .zip file
  2. Delete existing gtsoftbox_*.* files and gtsoftbox folder inside your GreatNews\Media folder,
    e.g. delete C:\GreatNews\Media\gtsoftbox_*.* and C:\GreatNews\Media\gtsoftbox\ folder
  3. Uncompress/extract the contents inside your GreatNews\Media folder, e.g. later you will have C:\GreatNews\Media\gtsoftbox\*.*

Update (20061212) v1.02 for GreatNews v1.0.0.376+
gtsoftbox v1.02 only supports GreatNews v1.0.0.376 or above.
This is due to the change in applying stylesheet for transparency effect. To work around IE7 issue with ClearType and transparency, it needs the stylesheet class "gn_readitem", new in GreatNews v1.0.0.376

For those who are still using the older version, you can still download gtsoftbox v1.01:
http://www.geocities.com/ganius/gtsoftbox_v1.01.zip


Changes:
20061113 - v1.02 (for GreatNews v1.0.0.376+)
============================================
* Replace gn_unreaditem to gn_readitem due to IE7 transparency 'bug' with ClearType
* Change font-size unit from % to em
* Change font styles to mimic WordPress' Kubrick theme: #444 Lucida Grande
* Add miscellaneous font styles for TD, PRE, and CODE
* Increase side padding in story details
* Fix: gt_softbox_xx_hdr_rnd doesn't apply rounded corner in single/individual item view

For more info, please refer to history.txt inside the zip file.

It doesn't work with Mozilla engine - basic styles from *.txt files in subfolder are not imported and there's Times New Roman everywhere so it doesn't look good.

Glad you like it :D

@yagood, I wasn't aware that GreatNews support Mozilla engine. Only after searching the forum, then I knew. I've updated the stylesheets to support Mozilla engine (Mozilla 1.7.12 ActiveX Control).

Please try & download gtsoftbox_v1.01.zip:
