How come this heading template is colored and when I copied the same exact codes into another wiki, it looks like this ? Mand'alor Skyobiliviator The Devastator 22:47, September 17, 2011 (UTC)

In their MediaWiki:Wikia.css, they use the following to make the heading look the way it does:
.heading {
   padding:0.2em 0.4em; 
   margin:0 0 10px 0; 
   background: url('') repeat-x;
   color: white; 
   /* border:1px solid #ee7a06; */

Not working...does it happens because I called it "HeadingA"? And if it does, what can I do to change it to make it work? Mand'alor Skyobiliviator The Devastator
The tag beginning the template says <h2 class="heading">. The word in quotations is used to transmit the css to the template, but you changed .heading { ... in your Wikia.css to .HeadingA { .... Copy the css from above and do not alter it, and the template should look the way want it. --Dser (wall | email) 00:04, 9/18/2011
Is this how it suppose to look? It still don't work. Mand'alor Skyobiliviator The Devastator 00:28, September 18, 2011 (UTC)
If you noticed, the template page I made is not called Heading, it is called HeadingA. Mand'alor Skyobiliviator The Devastator 00:36, September 18, 2011 (UTC)
Odd, now it works...Mand'alor Skyobiliviator The Devastator 00:36, September 18, 2011 (UTC)
Next thing: How to make exactly the same thing but instead of blue and whit it is gray and white? Mand'alor Skyobiliviator The Devastator 00:37, September 18, 2011 (UTC)
The gradient image used in the CSS has blue baked into the image, so you'd have to point to a new image with gray instead of blue. -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 17 Sep 2011 5:41 PM Pacific
How??? I want this ONLY on HeadingB...Mand'alor Skyobiliviator The Devastator 00:42, September 18, 2011 (UTC)

(Reset indent) First you will need to find a grey gradient. --Dser (wall | email) 00:48, 9/18/2011

Um, can some one make it for me? Top: silver, bottom: Black (changed my mind) Mand'alor Skyobiliviator The Devastator 01:24, September 18, 2011 (UTC)
And where to find one? Mand'alor Skyobiliviator The Devastator 01:32, September 18, 2011 (UTC)
Will this image do? --Dser (wall | email) 01:50, 9/18/2011
Indeed! Now how to hook it up? Replace URL on the .css?Mand'alor Skyobiliviator The Devastator 02:08, September 18, 2011 (UTC)
Add another part to Wikia.css for Template:HeadingB. Copy and paste the css from before, but change the headingA to headingB and change the URL to

New problem...the letters aren't evenly sized or bold...Mand'alor Skyobiliviator The Devastator 03:19, September 18, 2011 (UTC)
(Reset indent) I think it might be because Template:Maintop hasn't ended. At the bottom of that template, put in |}. --Dser (wall | email) 03:36, 9/18/2011
Nope, not even scooted all the contents to the right! Mand'alor Skyobiliviator The Devastator 04:23, September 18, 2011 (UTC)
Wait, now it does....and is there a way to advertise this wiki without the content team or other teams? Mand'alor Skyobiliviator The Devastator 04:32, September 18, 2011 (UTC)
There is some good advice here. --Dser (wall | email) 23:59, 9/18/2011
