colored scrollbars
Hello, could someone please tell me how to make colored scrollbars work in my links SQL? I have tried everything when inserting the CSS code into the pages. I have tried putting it into individual pages. I have tried putting it in the CSS global template. I messed around with it a little to see if altering the code would work when inserting it in the CSS. I put the CSS in its own global template. I had put it in both the head and body of the document. Yet no matter what I do with the CSS, it will not display on my links database. Could someone help me out with this? And if it is an error with the Links SQL script, could someone please let me know if there is any way that I can fix it?

I'm not sure if this would be relavent, but someone else installed the script for me. I don't know anything about CGI, PHP, or any of that stuff, and he put it in. He used the same script for a links database of his own as well, and was able to incorporate colored scrollbars in the display of his own data base. I am not sure what template set he is using. Mine is on the default template set. I don't know if that has anything to do with my problem either. Probably not.

If anyone can give me any help or advice whatsoever, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.:)

What browser are you using to test it?

It should work, because I put the CSS for colored scrollbars on other pages, such as a banner farm, manifesto, FAQ, etc., for my site, and each page was in the same server as the links database and the colored scrollbars worked just fine. They just won't show up on the links database pages.:(

I tried adding the colored scrollbars used on this forum:

<style type="text/css" media="screen"> <!--
body { scrollbar-base-color: #404040; scrollbar-arrow-color: #00ff33; }
a.menu:link,a.menu:visited { font-size:11; color:black; text-decoration:none; font-face:'Verdana,Helvetica,Arial'; font-weight:600; }
a.menu:hover { font-size:11; color:#256A19; text-decoration:underline; font-face:'Verdana,Helvetica,Arial'; font-weight:600; }
.submit { background-color:#7a9f54; font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size:10px; color:white; font-weight:bold; }
.button { background-color:#c5e1a3; color: black; font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 10px; }
a:link { color:#003366; text-decoration:none; font-face:'Verdana,Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif'; }
a:visited { color:#333366; text-decoration:none; font-face:'Verdana,Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif'; }
a:hover { color:#3366cc; text-decoration:underline; font-face:'Verdana,Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif'; }
--> </style>

I added the above code before the </head> statement on my home.html template and header.txt (it may be include_header.html on the default). It looks like it works.

I tried it and it wouldn't work. :( I don't know what the problem is. Could it have something to do with the way I have it configured? Just a possibility.

Thanks for trying to help, though.:)
