Feel free to add any tips, no matter how simple or complex. All tips are helpful. Please keep the Group about Tips, and not about promotion. Although, when you add a Discussion/Tip, feel free to include the link to your Social Network.

Hope everyone understands, I'm shutting off comments, so the comment section doesn't start out with questions and promotion, that just gets lost in the thread.


Thanks in advance,

Thank you Jen. I am admittedly worried how they will react to what I have done. I don't think it is improper for me to have the one single nonnegotiable point being that the Logo isn't to be removed. I let my members control everything else about their profiles, groups, blogs etc. What is your thought about it. Is it out of line for me to insist the logo be visible not hidden?

Comment by JenSocial on June 25, 2017 at 11:44am

Good stuff, hope that works well for you!

Comment by The York Paranormals on June 25, 2017 at 11:37am

Thanks Jen. I had it added in my Custom Code section and they were still able to override it. In response, I have added it as a site button which would appear on every page. I gave it the same Top and Left px amount as I had used for my XN logo settings. That sat it in the same position so that it was no longer able to be removed. In order to remove it, they would have to also hide important page attributes. I used Javascript and set the position to absolute so that it scrolls with the page and still gave it the z-index at 1. I had placed it in the css first but when anyone uses their own css theme, it deleted it. that is why I was using the code in my Custome box... Now I will watch and see how it goes with the new Javascript placement I used to place it on all the pages.

The York Paranormals, Try adding that part of the CSS to the Custom Code Box, within a style tag. Don't remove from CSS, just double up and add to Custom Code Box. I think that will override their settings. You might also want to add !important to end of that particular line of CSS.

<style>

your CSS!important;

</style>

I have a serious question. I have added my site logo as xn_bar #xn_bar_menu prepend image. I prefer this not be hidden on any page on my site. a few members are using xn hidden code snippets to hide it on their pages. Is there a way for me to override it and make the logo show anyway? If there is, could someone please tell me how to do it?

 I am back on buddypress, and unlike my time at tmdhosting, I love siteground. I have about 5 wordpress/buddypress communities already including Social Buddies, our main blog and our main Pagan site Forest Home. I will be working more with buddypress in the future. It's good to be back.

Comment by PaganJourneys.Net Hosting on August 29, 2013 at 7:06pm

@Sai Communities I have used buddypress and I liked it. All wordpress.org themes are now useable with buddypress. However I did not like tmdhosting and cancelled my site with them so no more buddypress. However, I will probably be using buddypress again in the future but it is hard to advertise your buddypress site and get followers and everything. Unless you have a mass following already it will be difficult for you to use buddypress.

I have tried buddy press and is an awesome platform  to build good social network and if you want to promote your products then there are many options. for more information have a look at buddypress.org/about/story/

Best social media for small business

Comment by JenSocial on April 27, 2012 at 11:16pm

Writer Chick,

To capture a specific group, would take custom script in the custom code box. However, for a page, you can add your CSS to the Custom Box for the specific page. For example, if you added the following code to a page, by clicking on "Manage Title and Meta Tags Manually...". Then add this code to the box labeled Custom:

<style>

p {font-family:tahoma;}

</style>

Any code you wrap in the <p> content here </p> tag, would take on the font tahoma.

Alternately, you could write an inline style directly in the page Text Box, and wrap your content in a DIV like this:

<div style="font-family:tahoma;">your content within the page</div>

Hope that helps,

Jen
