Fieldset Quotes

Yes, this looks a lot like Balloon-Shaped Frame Quote by hhy89, but uses the html tag "frameset" instead of images.

You will need to SUCCESSFULLY uninstall "Balloon-Shaped Frame Quote", Fieldset Quotes 1.0
or any other mod that alters quotes in your forums and/or personal messages before installing "Fieldset Quotes 1.1".

INTERNET EXPLORER USERS WILL SEE SQUARE CORNERS (another reason to use something else)


Unfortunately, I neglected to test this on Internet Explorer (IE) before releasing version 1.0.
I've been using Firefox for quite a while and I assumed IE would read it properly, but I was wrong.
I did some homework before making changes and releasing version 1.1 and fixed a few things IE was screwing up.
IE users will continue to see square corners. There are ways to do it, but I want to keep this
as simple as possible and I'm not going to bend over backwards for IE. 

To uninstall Fieldset Quotes 1.0:
Use the normal uninstall routine, then
manually remove the Fieldset Quotes section from the style.css at the bottom.
(won't uninstall automatically - sorry) (fixed in version 1.1)
Fieldset Quotes 1.1 will install the section near the top.

This is the section in the "style.css" that you can edit to suit your tastes.
Quote/* These are the settings for the Fieldset Quotes. */
/* Edit to your liking. */
/*At this time Internet Explorer users will ONLY SEE SQUARE CORNERS. */
fieldset {
    position: relative;
    margin-top:5px;
   border-radius: 8px;
    -moz-border-radius: 8px;
   -webkit-border-radius: 8px;
    padding:20px;
   border: 2px solid red;
   background-color: white;
}
/* The background colour in the legend will fill the whole legend */
/* You CAN have a different colour than the fieldset */
legend {
    position:absolute;
    top: -.7em;
    left: .5em;
   border-radius: 8px;
    -moz-border-radius: 8px;
   -webkit-border-radius: 8px;
    background-color: white;
    border: 1px solid red;
   padding-left: 5px;
   padding-right: 5px;
   padding-bottom: 1px;
}
/* End of Fieldset Quotes. */


Blah blah stuff:

I am more of a tweaker than a coder, so it is quite an accomplishment for me to actually submit something other than an avatar pack.

This mod is one way of giving something back to the SMF community for their support.

Thanks and enjoy.
