We want to provide more direct assistance & support to local Admins, so if you ever needed any help with managing the Wiki, doing something technical, or just had a question about how best to do something or how your Wiki is doing in search engines, I or Fandom at large can directly help you out or provide such information to you if you need or want it. We want to empower you to keep doing great things on Fandom!

    For the time being, would you be open to me tweaking site CSS to remove transparency from <pre> tags? The current CSS is making pages such as this illegible. Let me know what you think!

    • Heya, it's a pleasure. We definitely could use some help with the coding and stuff. As for your suggestion, I don't see why not, sounds like a necessary tweak. Though I'd like for User:ShonenChicoBoy to also voice his opinion on that before you proceed, as we're both the most active admins at this moment.

    • Completely understood, will happily wait for his input. In the meantime however, I wanted to bring up another thing:
      /* Link to Bleach Answers */
      $('ul.tools li:first-child').after('<li><a href="https://bleach.answers.wikia.com/">Got a question about Bleach?</a></li>');
      This JavaScript creates links to a now-closed Answers Wiki about Bleach. Since the Wiki being linked to is closed, would you be ok with me removing this JS? Pending approval from ShonenChicoBoy as well of course.

    • Hiya Ursuul I'll just respond here.

      First of all, thank you for stepping up to help us out here on BFF. I just read through a bunch of the UPC update blogs to get a sense of where you are coming from.

      Anyway, removing the transparency from the CSS backgrounds sounds great to me. I tried to do that manually on the CSS page but uh, wasn't successful. Not sure what the <pre> tags does exactly besides the backgrounds on the JS code pages, if that's the main thing you wanted to fix. I also removed that bleach answer line but didn't submit for approval. Anyway...

      The current, biggest issue with our CSS is that it happens to be a copy/paste clusterfuck from various different wikis all cobbled together on one page. Somehow it works, but the guy who set it all up is an inactive user. He came back around a year ago and changed a bunch of stuff that I'm unaware of before he left again. One example I do know of, because it's visible, are that subheadings on articles show up as red for some reason, and I don't know how to switch it back to blue. As for the rest of it I have no idea where he put stuff or how he set stuff up. I know a little about CSS but not enough to know where stuff ACTUALLY IS, for example the color code/gradient for our main page module templates.

      At any rate, I understand that you guys are trying to switch everything over to a unified MediaWiki platform. I'm not exactly sure what the difference between our current CSS and that would be, but I am open to a complete overhaul of the CSS in order to get everything up to standard. Just let me know what the biggest changes that need to be made are, and we can start working towards that.

      Looking forward to communicating with you in the future, and thanks again for your help/reaching out to us!

      Awesome, I'll see about fixing that CSS for you after dinner if possible. I can also submit that code update for approval if you like, it was done properly.

      I specialize in CSS, so I can help with this if you want me to. As for where it is located, it is located in the MediaWiki:Common.css & MediaWiki:Wikia.css files, & you can find the exact code affecting a given element via Inspect Element in a browser's developer tools. I can help you use those if you are not familiar.

      Yes, for this reason it may be best to hold off on massive overhauls until the transition is done, then we can rebuild the CSS & skin to look like however you want it to look from scratch. Does that sound good?

      No problem!
