This is a proof of concept posting to show how one can modify the format and layout of an Adobe Community web page.

This user tip shows you how to load a user style sheet into FireFox to make the Adobe Community web pages more readable.  Much white space has been eliminated.  Hiroto, an Apple Support Community contributor,  did the initial implementation for the Apple Support Community.  I've done some modifications for the Adobe Community.  More work needs to be done.

These changes are directed at the Firefox web browser.  With the movement of the @-moz-document tag data to a  User Content Manager, the css file should work with Chrome and Safari.

Here is how to let Firefox know about this style sheet.

Stylish supports the the direct importation of css rules.

-- Download and Install: 
  You need to download stylish in Firefox. Firefox will notice the download and ask you if it is
  ok to install.
   https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/stylish/

-- Using Stylish:

  firefox > tools > add-ons

  click on 'User Styles' in the left column < Yes, they changed the name >. 
  This will bring up the stylish stuff in the middle of the page.

  click on "write new style" button

  fill in a name of your user style sheet. I used ASC User styles.

  Crank up TextWrangler.

  Load the download file into TextWrangler

  Highlight all the code you see.  command + a

  Copy everything.  command + c

  Paste in the style sheet into the Stylish input area

  click on preview. Firefox will update displayed pages with new style rules. No need to restart.

  click on save when done. This will permanately add the style rules to Firefox and quit the edit.

Enjoy the new ASC web pages.


( Optional. )
To change a style sheet, I find it easier to change in TextWrangler. I feel it's best to user TextWrangler for these changes.
-- make your changes to the css in TextWrangler.
-- copy text in TextWrangler
-- switch to User Styles
-- highlight all
-- delete all text
-- paste text
-- click on preview to see changes.

Background

CSS effects the presentation of data. It moves data around, hides data, changes colors, changes margins, etc. There is the possibility of inserting data, but this sheet doesn't insert data.

Figuring what to write in a css file is difficult but reading isn't so bad.
example:

/* thread info */ 
    .jive-thread-info {  
        padding: 10px 40px !important; 
        margin: 0px !important; 
    }

With comments.

.jive-thread-info {   -- This is what is to be changed. 
        padding: 10px 40px !important;     -- changes inner space around text
                                                                   --  !important;   This change has the highest priority.
        margin: 0px !important;       --  changes outer space around object.  "Driving outside the lines"
                                                       -- set to 0 so to nullify.

This is a proof of concept posting to show how one can modify the format and layout of an Adobe Community web page.

This user tip shows you how to load a user style sheet into FireFox to make the Adobe Community web pages more readable.  Much white space has been eliminated.  Hiroto, an Apple Support Community contributor,  did the initial implementation for the Apple Support Community.  I've done some modifications for the Adobe Community.  More work needs to be done.

These changes are directed at the Firefox web browser.  With the movement of the @-moz-document tag data to a  User Content Manager, the css file should work with Chrome and Safari.

Here is how to let Firefox know about this style sheet.

Stylish supports the the direct importation of css rules.

-- Download and Install: 
  You need to download stylish in Firefox. Firefox will notice the download and ask you if it is
  ok to install.
   https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/stylish/

-- Using Stylish:

  firefox > tools > add-ons

  click on 'User Styles' in the left column < Yes, they changed the name >. 
  This will bring up the stylish stuff in the middle of the page.

  click on "write new style" button

  fill in a name of your user style sheet. I used ASC User styles.

  Crank up TextWrangler.

  Load the download file into TextWrangler

  Highlight all the code you see.  command + a

  Copy everything.  command + c

  Paste in the style sheet into the Stylish input area

  click on preview. Firefox will update displayed pages with new style rules. No need to restart.

  click on save when done. This will permanately add the style rules to Firefox and quit the edit.

Enjoy the new ASC web pages.


( Optional. )
To change a style sheet, I find it easier to change in TextWrangler. I feel it's best to user TextWrangler for these changes.
-- make your changes to the css in TextWrangler.
-- copy text in TextWrangler
-- switch to User Styles
-- highlight all
-- delete all text
-- paste text
-- click on preview to see changes.

Background

CSS effects the presentation of data. It moves data around, hides data, changes colors, changes margins, etc. There is the possibility of inserting data, but this sheet doesn't insert data.

Figuring what to write in a css file is difficult but reading isn't so bad.
example:

/* thread info */ 
    .jive-thread-info {  
        padding: 10px 40px !important; 
        margin: 0px !important; 
    }

With comments.

.jive-thread-info {   -- This is what is to be changed. 
        padding: 10px 40px !important;     -- changes inner space around text
                                                                   --  !important;   This change has the highest priority.
        margin: 0px !important;       --  changes outer space around object.  "Driving outside the lines"
                                                       -- set to 0 so to nullify.

I'm copyrighting the css style sheet Hiroto and I wrote and posted above.  It's the standard programming copyright.  It's like a program using system Application Program Interfaces.  It similar to what Google does when they scan the web for their search function.

  1. Custom Cascading Style Sheet for Adobe Communities system introduced
  2.     in 2014-05
  3.   
  4.   
  5.     This program is free software


My reading:

Custom Cascading Style Sheet is the subject and what I am talking about.


This program refers to Custom Cascading Style Sheet.  Hence, it is what I am talking about and copyrighting.
