This is a snippet from a news article. You can see that I'm trying to add a border around the image. It doesn't work. I've tried adding
Quote:
.itemText img {margin-right: 10px; margin-left: 10px; border: 1; }
into the theme css. Doesn't work.

I noticed that border is disabled in xoops.css, but I can't turn that on because links then have a blue border.

Re: Border around images

That is because the image settings are in the theme's style.css. CSS overrides html code.

Now just a word from experience. If you make the changes in style.css, it is going to effect every image on the page.

A better idea is to edit the template. Add a new css class and then add the class to you style.css file.

HTH.

Another option would be, to create a class you assign with images you place into newsarticles.

Something like this...
img.StyledImage
{
 
your settings...
}


and...
news item bla <a href="link2"><img src="here.jpg" class="StyledImage">....


This should work, as you are no longer using a general rule, but a specific.

HTH

while you may be looking for a site wide way to accomplish this, I find that simply adding whitespace to such images helps. ie:simply add 3px (etc) to the canvas side of the image that is wrapped by text.

Of course it does sound like that is not the solution you are looking for, but if you get frusterated try it.

DOH!
just re-read the post, my solution is stupid. Sorry!

I had noticed that on other sites. I want to keep my options open. I'm still trying to come up with a new theme for the site and I'm always changin my mind. Styles are the way to go. Will give it a try.

Thanks JasonMR
