Solved Creating a BBcode toolbar for dark-themed templates

is there another bbcode icon bar more suited to dark templates?
or perhaps a way to style the entire tr? I can see how to style just the icon background but it really should see the entire bar not just the icons themselves if it makes any sense.
I really hope cyprsis supports dark templates well.

Try this one. It looks fine on a dark template.

I realise that this is an ancient subject and there hasn't been any movement on it in ages.

Recently, when I was building a website that uses a Kunena forum, I wanted to experiment with the use of font-based glyphs instead of the images you see in the BBcode toolbar on this site.



As we know, the standard Kunena BBcode toolbar does a bit of fancy CSS fiddling with the image ../components/com_kunena/template/blue_eagle/media/iconsets/editor/default/default.png. If people use a dark-themed template, the "images" may not render as "nicely" as people would like to see them. Also, when a person uses browser zooming, these images become less clear when they're enlarged.

Instead of using image-based glyphs, I experimented with a couple of different fonts - there are a lot of them around (e.g. Glyphicons Halflings, FontAwesome, IcoMoon) - to produce a toolbar like this:



There are three benefits in using font-based gylphs:

(1) the clarity remains consistent if you zoom in or out;
(2) you can customise each tool quite easily (font-size, colour, background, etc.) instead of having to redesign a whole new set of images; and
(3) you do not have to change the Kunena source-code.

The downside is that you can only use a single colour but, if you look at a lot of professionally developed software today - particularly those products developed by Apple (e.g Safari, iTunes) - there's a trend in using monochromatic, font-based glyphs.

I had to make a lot of changes to my Joomla site template CSS. (I can't remember, but it was about 200 lines.)

I can demonstrate the effect but my site is one that you have to pay to join.

The forum at this site is K 3.0.5 using an unmodified Blue Eagle template. I made no changes to the Kunena CSS files. All the changes were made by creating a separate file of CSS modifications that only affect the forum - in other words, they only affect the "#Kunena" elements - and "@include" this file when the site CSS is loaded.

If you're interested you can look at my site but, like I said, I developed this site as a way of generating some extra "pocket money" in return for the thousands of questions that people have asked over the years.

Is there anything else you would like me to tell you about how you can find a solution to your question or can we mark this as "resolved"? :dry:

its certainly not resolved but I don't see anything constructive coming, kunena support has seriously degraded. So mark it closed
