Title: Report modding ongoing
Post by: satchel on October 20, 2008, 07:51:11 AM
I thought I had the reports pretty much customized, but looking at them today, there are several changes missing which I thought I'd made (one being the colors of the links in the menu bar: "BNN Home-NPBL-Scores-Standings" etc). I believe that I might have given Chappy an incomplete set of files, I'll get after it.

Thanks...

I installed the templates you sent me today and the other stuff on last week, so everything you sent should at least be in place.

Yes thanks Chappy. I was doing some modding with the "NPBL test" league that you'd made available, and some with the "real" league, and I never combined everything I was doing into one set.

Satch...

Upon closer examination, it looks like the reports are correct in-game...

I'm wondering if there's something I need to upload to get them to look right on the site.

Are the links on the title bar white in-game (instead of blue like currently on the site)?

You might just need to upload the styles.css file that I sent you. If you put it into your game, it might not have automatically transferred. It belongs in the reports/news/html directory. Some of the modded templates stuff looks like it didn't go through, either. I'll double-check everything tonight.

My reports do not look correct in-game.  I'm guessing that for us to have it work on our computers, we'd need the template files and images, too.

Yes, it's white in-game.  I'm home now so I'll have to wait until morning to upload it.

I'll also post it here so it can look right on your machines.

I thought that the "league file" that the game generates includes all the custom images. You're right about needing the same templates for things to look correct in-game for you, that's something that I haven't realized until now.

Satch,

The style.css file has been re-uploaded, but the main bar is still blue.  When I open the reports from in the game, it is white; however, perhaps it's because the content of the menu bars is slightly different.  One starts with BNN Home, the other ends with Leagues.

The proper template is now in your game, but it wasn't when that report was generated, so the report that the game is now making up on the fly as you play your game is corrected, but we won't have a copy of the right style on the website until the next time you generate reports, with that proper template in place.

But I updated the template before simming yesterday.

That's a good point, I'd forgotten that such was the case. I'm not sure what the problem is, let me double-check my stuff at home, it seemed to be working correctly for me last night.

I can see that I might have sent you some incorrect files, but if you're seeing one thing in-game, when you generate reports you should be getting the same product.

Well, satch, whatever the case, it looks right today!

Thanks!

Thanks for getting everything plugged in so quickly Chappy.

There are still some things in the reports that I need to fix. Some of the column headers are in different colors (http://npblbaseball.com/npbl/reports/news/html/teams/team_227_potential_ratings_report.html), I need to make them consistent.

If anyone has suggestions or needs to point something out, use this thread to do so.

Satch - would you be able to add a link to the utilities on the nav bar like you did for the JL?

Sure, that's no problem. I'll try to do it tonight.
