Journal-specific style sheet

Postby drjhf » Tue Apr 25, 2006 2:03 pm

A couple of quick questions about uploading a journal-specific CSS into Section 5.6 Journal-specific Style Sheet:

Should one take the file common.css, modify only those portions requiring it, rename it as journalname.css and upload it? Does the name matter?

Should one just have the modified sections in the file? Or the whole original with any modifications?

If one only wants to change the color of the top and bottom banners, which sections to modify? Only the #header ?

And what is the height of the colored banner? Width appears to be 800 px.

Hi Julian,

Either approach will work -- that is, you can either modify the file and send the whole thing up, or you can only override the styles you change. I'd suggest just including the modified styles.

The maximum width of the logo file is all that matters. The height isn't predefined and you can make it narrower than the maximum if you like.

The filename of the journal stylesheet also doesn't matter.

To change the colours of the header and footer, override the #header and #footer styles.
