Comment Button

Someone who's name shall not be mentioned, had said they didn't even realize that there was a comment button on the campaign homepage. Which I can sort of understand since the campaign homepage is usually one of the more visually  striking pages.  So I set about making the comment button a little more obvious. In my case, I enlisted the help of an animated short tempered alien to act as my ambassador to the comment section.

/* Comment Section*/

.small-12.columns.comment-count-column {

background-image: url(https://db4sgowjqfwig.cloudfront.net/campaigns/124016/assets/664042/Comment.gif);

height: 300px;

background-position:center;

background-repeat: no-repeat;

}

.comment-count-wrapper {

    height: 300px;

}

.comment-count-wrapper .count {

    padding-top: 250px;

}

.comment-count-wrapper dd{font-size:100%;}

So feel free to head on over and take a look https://x-com-defiance.obsidianportal.com/ and I'd do as my ambassador says.

They are among us!

    Hey that was me ;)

    And that comments thing is the first thing I'm incorporating when I can afford to upgrade my account again and play with CSS. Thanks a googolplex for figuring it out. I am saving the code!

    So, any way to change the size of the image though? Text seems to be cutting off on mine and figured i'd ask BEFORE I went and redid the gif

    obviously with values that you want.

    It was going to be temporary, but now I anaconda attached to it. Now I am compelled to think up a villain for Salma there to repserpent. In any case, I hope it doesn't invite any venomous criticisms -- or hisssssy fits, after all, she's wearing a garter. People can be such asps. My fangs for the comment!

    I mean... she is fantastic! 

    This thread inspired me some, even if I went a bit different path. I chose some toned down CSS animations instead, a border for the comment and a pulse for the favorite. I'm not sure if I "sold" it okay, but the empty favorite heart gets pretty excited at the thought you might click it.

    Unfortunately, once you do, its a pretty boring filled favorite heart. Maybe I should have the heart continue to pulse after favorited, just not get excited... Thoughts?

    Bortas, it your toned down images look good. I was originally thinking about a more toned down approach but an aliens taking over earth isn't really toned down.
