Attention Template Creators

Posted by Kim on January 3, 2020, 9:00am

Hey there! If you're a character style/template creator, you've probably noticed that the site has some new features. ;)

For most of you, your templates will continue to work with little or no need for adjustment. However, if you have checked the "Do not load the default CSS" box on a character style, you're going to need to add this CSS somewhere near the top of your template:

.row {clear: both; margin-bottom: 2rem;} .row_end {clear:both;} .rows { margin: 0 40px;} ul.widgets {list-style-type: none; padding: 0; margin: 0;} .col-11,.col-10,.col-9,.col-8,.col-7,.col-6,.col-5,.col-4,.col-3,.col-2,.col-1 {float: left; padding-right: 15px; padding-left: 15px; box-sizing: border-box;} .row > div:first-child {padding-left: 0;} .row > div:last-child {padding-right: 0;} .col-1 {flex: 0 0 8.3333333333%; width: 8.3333333333%;} .col-2 {flex: 0 0 16.6666666666%; width: 16.6666666666%;} .col-3 {flex: 0 0 24.9999999999%; width: 24.9999999999%;} .col-4 {flex: 0 0 33.3333333332%; width: 33.3333333332%;} .col-5 {flex: 0 0 41.6666666665%; width: 41.6666666665%;} .col-6 {flex: 0 0 49.9999999998%; width: 49.9999999998%;} .col-7 {flex: 0 0 58.3333333331%; width: 58.3333333331%;} .col-8 {flex: 0 0 66.6666666664%; width: 66.6666666664%;} .col-9 {flex: 0 0 74.9999999997%; width: 74.9999999997%;} .col-10 {flex: 0 0 83.333333333%; width: 83.333333333%;} .col-11 {flex: 0 0 91.6666666663%; width: 91.6666666663%;} .col-12 {width: 100%;}

If you're still having trouble getting your templates to work with the new system, head on over to the Custom Character Template Clinic topic, where I'm helping individual template creators with their code.

There's also a Custom Group Style Clinic, if you're having trouble converting your custom group template. :)

There's no need to fear the update! I and a lot of other users with some CSS savvy are standing by to help you personally.

As a somewhat on topic aside: Going forward, we've also changed the name of Character Templates to Character Styles, and Group Templates will now be called Group Styles. :) I think this more accurately reflects what they do/are.

I'm (very very slowly) fixing up my styles to work with the update. I'd be happy to help people out as well wherever I can! :)

@riaanly -

I'm not really understanding your question. This is about the custom CSS code that epic members were allowed to write for their character templates, to change the way it looked. The colors and things.

i am sorry, and i am afraid i do not understand. :/
