If you haven't got the new activity feed, you still can have the lovely thinking bubbles here for old activity. Now it's time to get excited with the new activity feed and thinking bubbles together!!!! Yahooooooo!!!


Which one do you like?



With shadows? Or without shadows?


And pls ignore the english writing because it's Google's funny translation.

Now put the following CSS code into the advanced CSS field of Design Studio:


.xg_module_activity .feed-story-status .feed-quote {
    display: none;

.xg_module_activity .feed-story-status .feed-endquote {

    display: none;

.xg_module_activity .feed-story-status .status-update {

    padding-left: 0;
    padding: 1em 2em;

    margin: 0 0 5px 15px;
    vertical-align: middle;
    color: #666;

    border: 1px solid #ccc;
    background-color: #fff;
    border-radius: 50px;
    -moz-border-radius: 50px;
    -webkit-border-radius: 50px;
    -webkit-box-shadow: 3px 3px 10px #FFC9CF;
    -moz-box-shadow: 3px 3px 10px #FFC9CF;
    box-shadow: 3px 3px 10px #FFC9CF;

.xg_module_activity .feed-story-status .rich-detail {

    padding: 0 1em 0 0.8em;
    background: #fff url('http://api.ning.com/files/sTKz1f8S0Pfd6ZE5Ayyif7
fEoHiBcsHAUA9XLM05pD1mn/bubble.gif') no-repeat 0 30%;


You may need to change the color or padding, margin. And here is the two little bubbles image you can use. (Right click on it to copy the url path.)


Pls remember the background image url should be in one line non-break. You can draw another two little bubbles image with different color too. I think it's not that hard.


If you don't want shadows, just remove these three lines:

    -webkit-box-shadow: 3px 3px 10px #FFC9CF;
-moz-box-shadow: 3px 3px 10px #FFC9CF;
box-shadow: 3px 3px 10px #FFC9CF;



I think my next plan is to have differences crazy status box backgrounds. :)

How are you? I added this tip; however it's not working on my site. Thank you for your help!
Once I right click and save the 2 little bubbles, upload them and then where do you enter the url for the 2 little bubbles into the code?

Replace the background url between quots:


.xg_module_activity .feed-story-status .rich-detail {

    padding0 1em 0 0.8em;
    background: #fff url('http://api.ning.com:80/........../bubble.gif') no-repeat 0 30%;


Alex - you are awesome!   THANK YOU!   Sorry I didn't realize there were two separate tips for this.  It looks so cool on my site now! 

The shadow color even already matches my site :)

this  (and other things) are not workimg properly in ie

i adapted this code and used it to highlight and frame many things on my site working beautifully ..untill i opened ie

it worked fine on every page but forum discussions where most of my css refused to work properly

i tested with only thios

.xg_module_activity .feed-story-status .status-update{vertical-align:middle;color:#fff;border:1px solid #ccc;background-color:#14135e;border-radius:50px;-moz-border-radius:50px;-webkit-border-radius:50px;-webkit-box-shadow:6px 6px 10px #FFC9CF;-moz-box-shadow:6px 6px 10px #FFC9CF;box-shadow:6px 6px 10px #FFC9CF;margin:0 0 5px 15px;padding:1em 2em;}
.xg_module_activity .feed-story-status .rich-detail{background:#333 url(http://api.ning.com:80/files/X1xpAeybsx1lH41WEeXaG5Nsp06FfuievRMi9V...*CODtd1W59jaEDG5HvbDZeaHqIAgW7xOJE-iTfBG6t/bubbles.png) no-repeat 0 30%;padding:0 1em 0 .8em;}
.xj_status .input-container{border-radius:10px;border:3px solid #aaa!important;-moz-border-radius:10px;-webkit-border-radius:10px;}

Thank you! Looks fabulous!

Just found this.  Brilliant thanks!

Brilliant! Shadows for sure.. Its more now! I've managed to add the bubbles as well as change the color of the shadow. Still have a long way to go but seems i'm in the right place!!
