Sidebar

I am looking for a template or just plaing tips on ccs for the standard OP sidebar. I've scoured the forums but nothing up to date or relavent.

I'd like to change the text to match the rest of my campaign color scheme. Later maybe even set up cool buttons or something.

    It's actually not as easy as it sounds - CSS is designed to change the way existing things look, not recode with different HTML. I believe I stole this from Thorvaldr...

    The code I use, essentially makes the current text size 0, and then adds a small bit of custom stylized text after each item.
    @#campaign-nav .front-page .nav-text {font-size:0;}/* Remove current text and replace it with next line */
    #campaign-nav .front-page a:after {content:"Base Camp"; color:#6d0808 !important; font-family:Gabriela !important; font-size:12pt !important;}
    #campaign-nav .adventure-log .nav-text {font-size:0;}/* Remove current text and replace it with next line */
    #campaign-nav .adventure-log a:after {content:"Journals"; color:#6d0808 !important; font-family:Gabriela !important; font-size:12pt !important;}
    #campaign-nav .wiki .nav-text {font-size:0;}/* Remove current text and replace it with next line */
    #campaign-nav .wiki a:after {content:"Encyclopedia"; color:#6d0808 !important; font-family:Gabriela !important; font-size:12pt !important;}
    #campaign-nav .characters .nav-text {font-size:0;}/* Remove current text and replace it with next line */
    #campaign-nav .characters a:after {content:"Personalities"; color:#6d0808 !important; font-family:Gabriela !important; font-size:12pt !important;}
    #campaign-nav .items .nav-text {font-size:0;}/* Remove current text and replace it with next line */
    #campaign-nav .items a:after {content:"Wonders"; color:#6d0808 !important; font-family:Gabriela !important; font-size:12pt !important;}
    #campaign-nav .maps .nav-text {font-size:0;}/* Remove current text and replace it with next line */
    #campaign-nav .maps a:after {content:"Cartography"; color:#6d0808 !important; font-family:Gabriela !important; font-size:12pt !important;}
    #campaign-nav .settings .nav-text {font-size:0;}/* Remove current text and replace it with next line */
    #campaign-nav .settings a:after {content:"GM Tools"; color:#6d0808 !important; font-family:Gabriela !important; font-size:12pt !important;}@

    That's exactly what I mean: you are wanting to add extra HTML, and CSS doesn't do that, it only changes the appearance of what already exists, it does not add new html things entirely (although it can make existing things disappear).

    The solution is to add HTML, and the only place you can do that is in the main body of a post. Many many many people have chosen to add the html (and the css to style it) to each and every page. I can't bring myself to do it though - if I ever want to make a tiny change, I have to change hundreds of pages.

    Yea exactly.

    I like having my HTML separate from my CSS.

    I smashing as much css onto the advanced custom page as I can.

    I just don't have any real knowledge on how to do it...learning as much HTML and CSS as I can however.

    This is what I use for my campaign.

    I tried to add this in as a block of code but as you can see none of the tags are working for me.


    /* LEFT NAV SIDEBAR MENU */
    /*Change Link Names*/
    /*removes default text*/
    #campaign-nav .nav-text {font-size:0;}

    /*adds customized text*/
    #campaign-nav .dashboard a:after {content:" Dashboard";}
    #campaign-nav .adventure-log a:after {content:" A Lost Journal";}
    #campaign-nav .wiki a:after {content:" A Dusty Tome";}
    #campaign-nav .characters a:after {content:" The Cast";}
    #campaign-nav .forum a:after {content:" The Podium";}
    #campaign-nav .calendar a:after {content:" The Hourglass";}
    #campaign-nav .settings a:after {content:" Settings";}
    #campaign-nav .front-page a:after {content:" The Hearthfire";}
    #campaign-nav .maps a:after {content:" Cartography";}
    #campaign-nav .items a:after {content:" Bits and Baubles";}

    /* Custom Background Image and Size Settings */
    /* sidebar navigation banner background */
    .collapsable-nav-row .front-nav-container {
    width:100%;
    background-image:url(https://db4sgowjqfwig.cloudfront.net/campaigns/62189/assets/388589/SideNavBarBanner.png?1415216645);
    background-repeat:no-repeat;
    top:-1px;
    left:15px;
    width:170px;
    height:400px;}

    I am pretty happy with the standard left side bar. I was looking to change the color, which I have managed to figure out. Thanks though.
