View Full Version : Template Distortion - Please help

Hi Morgan,

I sent you a pm regarding this a few days ago. After changing my skin, GAZ is still showing my old header and footer design. I can not seem to change this no matter what I do in templates.

Could you please help me fix this issue? Thanks.

There are the gaz_html_header, gaz_html_navbar, and gaz_html_footer templates that you can edit for each style as you prefer. Use absolute http:// links, not relative links, do not use JavaScript, use inline CSS, not external CSS files, etcetera, so that you have a better chance that the receiver's email reader does not strip out parts of the HTML email. For reasons discussed here (http://www.thevbgeek.com/geeki/index.php/Styles_and_templates_in_GAZ) you cannot use relative links, JavaScript, external/non-inline CSS. If you try to use exact replicates of your forum templates, it will not look good in an email reader, as many email readers strip out/do not permit the "fancy" stuff you can use on a webpage. There is further explanation about this on this (http://www.thevbgeek.com/geeki/index.php/Styles_and_templates_in_GAZ) page. After you make edits to the GAZ templates, go to the ACP -> GAZ -> Issues -> click the issue -> check the Refresh Layout box -> Save -> do another preview to see the changes. Sorry but I just don't have the time to do customizations.
