I'm trying tu use sIFR module but I can only use with sScelector and font parameter:

Sifr::replaceElement("h1", "din");

when I try a third parameter like sColor:

Sifr::replaceElement("h1", "din",sColor:"#000000");

I get:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ':' in...

There's a way to get this work? Thanks.

Hey vloox

i had the same problem but managed to solve it by wrapping the sColor:"#000000" type parameters in single quotes like this

Sifr::replaceElement("h2", "bellgotic",'sColor:"#fe6e0e",sLinkColor:"#fe6e0e", sBgColor:"#ffffff", sHoverColor:"#fe6e0e"');

this also might help the latest release v0.1 would only work for me on ie7 but not firefox (2 i think) but the trunk version seems to work fine strait from install :-)

This module really needs to be updated to use sIFR 3. I had horrible problems with it and had to hack the core code to use the newer version.

Thanks Phill, I'm using the trunk version and works fine in IE7, FF2, FF3 and Opera 9.

Just thought i put this up here because some might find it usfull, if using the sifr module with the gallery module (lightbox) and you have the problem with the sifr displaying in front of the light box try adding


to the options when calling replaceElement() its took me a while to work this out although it is kind of mentioned in sifr.php comments
