Ticket #437 (fixed enhancement)

Add link separator to separate post links

  • Created: 2011-05-15 18:08:39
  • Reported by: Koos
  • Assigned to: Reines
  • Milestone: 1.4.6
  • Component: styling
  • Priority: low

Style developers should have the option of using the link separators to separate links in posts. They were removed in fluxbb 1.4 for some reason. I propose that a span element is then added to the link separators, and one can just make it invisible if they are not needed, e.g. in the Air style. I've attached a patch that show my recommendation. The patch for the Oxygen style I uploaded earlier includes a necessary fix so that the link separators will display correctly when using the Oxygen style.

E.g. for the Technetium I think it would look much better if link separators are used:

  • Component set to styling.
  • Milestone set to 1.4.6.
  • Priority changed from normal to low.
  • Type changed from bug to enhancement.

This should be possible using pure CSS, without the need to edit any markup... I think?

It is definitely possible with CSS only. Personally, I like without separators (less clutter). With Technetium, add padding between options to make it more readable.

Yes, it can be done in css. The oxygen like styles look better with link separators.

css link separators can be done like this:

.pun .postfootright li {
    display: inline;

After, add:

.pun .postfootright li:before {
    content: " | ";

.pun .postfootright li:first-child:before {
    content: "";

I dont think other developers are going to support old punbb style since 2.0 styles are coming in.
