Very cool, Anthony...I was going to try to figure out how to do this myself...does this worked for fixed width and fluid?

Thanks

I think I might be having a dumb moment, but how do I alter the style?

I want to change the text colour and size for box one, however when I alter the settings in the Box One CSS, nothing happens.

I am using this custom footer on a lot of forums and I'm very happy with it.

I have created a custom footer, using this, for a small tween-game forum - and I wish to add a few information there.

One of the information should be some info links to customized pages on the forum - but I want them language-phrased, because some are from Denmark, some needs English and soon, some will be able to choose Dutch.

But I can't get the xen: phrase-tag to work with the footer.

As an example I created a phrase in Phrases called 'about_myhorsefriends' - About My Horse Friends. I created it again in the Danish version with the Danish expression.

In box one I created this:

<a href="http://www.myhorsefriends.com">{xen: phrase about_myhorsefriends}</a>

(I added an extra space between 'xen:' and 'phrase' here because otherwise it will look like :p )

It just doesn't work - but looks like this:

Is this even possible in any ways and if so, how?

Thank you

I don't think you can use it in style properties(assuming this add-on uses those).

You may have to edit the template directly where it's trying to call the style property.

Thank you, Russ, for the quick reply. The thing is, I'm not a strong coder, but a designer.

Would you know how I change it in the template?

I don't use it, but you could try searching for:

customFooterBoxContent1 (assuming the screenshot in the description is correct).

Open the template that uses that, and replace @customFooterBoxContent1 with the contents of your style property box(where you currently are calling your phrase that isn't working

What I mean is mostly, which template. There is a custom footer box 1 template, but looks like it's mostly just telling, what you see in the back end:

<div class="boxContent baseHtml">
<p>Use HTML to build <a href="http://xenforo.com">Xenforo</a> box content one.</p>
</div>

Then there's this:


Code:
<xen:require css="footer_custom.css" />

<xen:if is="@customFooterActive">
<div class="footer" style="border-radius: 0;">
    <div class="pageWidth">
        <div class="pageContent" style="border-radius: 0;">
            <div id="customFooter">               
                <div class="box3">
                    <div class="boxTitle">
                        @customFooterTitle3
                    </div>
                    <div class="boxContent">
                        @customFooterBoxContent3
                    </div>
                </div>
                <div class="box1">
                    <div class="boxTitle">
                        @customFooterTitle1
                    </div>
                    <div class="boxContent">
                        @customFooterBoxContent1
                    </div>
                </div>
                <div class="box2">
                    <div class="boxTitle">
                        @customFooterTitle2
                    </div>
                    <div class="boxContent">
                        @customFooterBoxContent2
                    </div>

<div class="clear"></div>
