Trying to change THANK_MESSAGE

Post by stephenhenry » Thu Apr 05, 2007 8:36 pm

I'm trying to change the size of the THANK_MESSAGE that appears after E-mail is sent to a contact.  I can change the text without a problem, but any attempts to change the font size seem to be ignored. 

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Steve

Hi All,

I am new to Joomla and not sure what the person that made the original posted did for cross posting, but I am having the same problem and would like to find an answer to this question as well.  I can change the message, but any attempt to use html, styles. etc... do not display.

I would like to change the font size and color of the thank you message after the contact us form is submitted.  The current size and color makes it so you almost do not see the thank you message so the end user has no idea the submission completed successfully.

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

You probably cannot use html in the english.php language file.

However you can change the appearance of the thank you message in your current template's template_css.css,
e.g. add:

.message {
font-weight: bold;
font-size: 20px; /* use a bigger font */
height: 50px; /* vertical room for the message */
color: #FF0000; /* Hexadecimal color code for Red */
}

Besides changing the CSS, where is THANK_MESSAGE used within Joomla, if one wanted to hard code changes?
