Head template and MAIN template

Head template and MAIN template

Never mind the title. Wrong issue.

What I wanted to mention was the main template that ships with PS3 - it calls the admin.css file for some reason. It screws up the pages you create with the main template. Just fYI.

Edit: It also has home.css in the head portion as well. I don't understand why. But once you remove those two lines, it's back to normal (similar to the pre-made pages, like tos, and privacy, etc)

Can you elaborate on this a wee bit? You're referring to Main.dwt.php right?

How does it screw up the pages? I'm asking because I'm having problems getting my modifications to stick.

Thanks!

Yes, I'm referring to Main.dwt.php.

It just screws up the formatting of the page. By adding admin.css and home.css files in the head (as it does by default for some strange reason) - those files have tags that override the tags that are in content.css which are made for the main template pages. So once you remove those calls to admin and home css files - your pages will look similar to the pre-made pages (such as privacy_policy.php, and/or termofservice.php). That's assuming that you are creating the new pages similar to those pages (ie. using the div class contentBox).

It's just about the page format (where it places the background image for the main content - it's different when you have home.css in your head portion of the template). At least, it was for me.

Hope that helps.

As far as I can tell, the only call to the admin.css stylesheet from the main template is:

#outerWrapper #contentWrapper #content {
margin-left: 0;
padding-left: 0;
padding-right: 0;
}

That sets zero left & right padding and zero left margin in the content area. What does it do to you page?

I don't really remember.. All I know is once I removed the "<link rel=stylesheet src=css/admin.css />" type line (I realize that's not the exact line but you get what I mean) - the page looked like it should. I didn't research which were the conflicting CSS tags.

It doesn't matter. That's a waste of bandwith anyways. You shouldn't be calling the ADMIN css file when you aren't using the ADMIN template.

Same goes for home.css.

Whether or not it was affecting anything (which is WAS) - doesn't even matter. It was something that was overlooked I assume, and it should be removed from future updates.
