    Default Css styling

    I checked the Docs before posting and I also checked the sample temlate in 3.x.

    Are there un-documented classes we can use to style the signup form in 3.x. I was able to mess with the core in 2.x but I have no clue how to make changes to the signup form in 3.x.

    I found the one for the login form in the default template in 3.x but none for the signup form. Am I missing something?

    I found this in the Lazuli css file
    #signup_section_link{float:left;}
    #login_section_link{float:right;}
    .section_link_container{width:400px;}
    #signup_section{display:none;}

    But making changes to this did not affect what I see on the signup form.

    Could someone from the Dev team let me know what I am doing wrong or what I am missing.

    Can the signup form be styled from the css file?
    If yes, what are the classes or ids I need to use?

    Thank You

    Do a view source in your browser. Any classes or IDs will be shown. Make any changes (or additions) to the "style_main.css" for lazuli.

    Thanks sandking

    I have a sugestion though

    I looked at the source and I actully copied it to a file and saved it. (Thanks for that idea, I should have thought of that)
    1. Both the member signup and the agent signup uses the same classes.

    clear
    form_div
    field_element
    field_caption
    required
    redtext
    or_std_button
    space_5
    {validate:{required:true,email:true}}

    form_div is used for every line
    field_caption is used for every caption (Username, Phone, Last Name and so on)
    field_element is used for every <input

    If I need to use css to do some advanced styling, having full control of how the signup forms are layed out, that would a bit tricky with the current class assignments (I think).

    Before I could go into the core and place any class anywhere and then style it.

    I mean like having a layout like

    Username * ____________ Password * _____________ Password (Again) * _____________
    First Name ____________ Last Name * ____________ Email * _______________________
    Phone ____________ Mobile ________________ Fax _________________________

    and so on, you get the jist of what I am saying.

    Would it be to much on the Dev Team to go the extra mile (In that the code is closed and we have lost that ability)

    To make the classes individual and then release a doc for the designers like this

    User Signup
    ========
    Form classes
    ------------
    user_clear
    user_form_div_username
    user_form_div_lname
    user_form_div_fname
    user_form_div_email
    user_form_div_phone
    .....and so on

    user_field_element_username
    user_field_element_lname
    user_field_element_fname
    user_field_element_email
    user_field_element_phone
    .....and so on

    user_field_caption_username
    user_field_caption_lname
    user_field_caption_fname
    user_field_caption_email
    user_field_caption_phone
    .....and so on

    I think you get it by now the same for agents form

    I think that if it is done that way, then we will have better control over the form layouts.

    I know that all of this could be done by a skilled developer by bypassing and using a addon but I am not that skilled developer but I am the guy who could manupulate the code and style it as I whish.

    If I could get that option to style the pages and forms anyway I want, I would be happy.

    Sorry to bore you

    Thank You

    PS
    By the way, I am able to take the form code and paste it into a regular page via the OR page editor and I can now assign the classes as above and style them as I whish but I would love to have that option in the core so I can drop it in the css file and let the magic shows in the standard Open Realty form.
