Hi all,

I have a few basic questions regarding my first time setup of a template with ss.

1st:
I have copied a good working CSS layout into a silver stripe page.ss file in the hope that the original design should hold up pretty well, which it does apart from having a 1 or 2 pixel gap along the horizontal edge of all of my images which I am trying to work out why that is.

I'm examining all the CSS files across the SS site and in the saphire/css directory trying to find out what is making it do this?

2nd
Why is that no matter what I get the SS bottom footer (page view in: CMS Draft Site Published) bar despite not even being logged into or looking at the admin? Obvously I don't want people to see that bar.
Is that just the default way a SS site installs and I simply remove
$SilverStripeNavigator
from the page.ss
???

Or maybe that is just the default way for the tutorial template which I am basing my own template off.

Seems a bit silly,

Any help would be great

1 - Your best bet is to install Firebug which is a plugin for firefox. Using this you can dig through the css.

2 - I believe the nav bar only is enabled for every one when your site is in devmode. If it is in livemode it should hide the bar.

HI Will thanks for the help, I've been able to locate the problem. I designed my initial css layout with a doc type of:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

it only just occurred to me that SS uses a doc type of.

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml11/DTD/xhtml11.dtd">

and this is what is causing the rendering difference, so I guess I'll have to get my design working around this new doc type and hopefully that will fix it.

Thanks again
