      Custom styling your signature on OSXL

      Hey community!   As you all might know we underwent a massive upgrade from our old forum to this new one. After the upgrade you might have noticed that signatures aren't that well visible. They look completely out of the place and are a total mess to look at.   So, after tuning up our site and handling the core things, I have managed to take out some time today and was toying around with the web developer tools in Chrome.   I wanted my signature to look a bit different and more stylish. As you can see, it also has some fancy animation once you hover over it. You can look at the source code for my signature by inspecting the element.   Here's how you can apply custom CSS3 styling to your signature: Navigate to "Account Settings" from the user settings drop down menu (top right).   Select "Signature" section.   Now you need to change to source code mode as default IPS WYSIWYG is a headache when it comes to styling. Plus the CK Editor we get in Signature's section is very slimmed down (features removed).   To change to source mode you need to click on the source button on the editor's toolbar. Here's a visual reference: Once you switch to the source code mode, the first thing you wanna do is put your signature in the center of the screen. You can also use css but using a <center> tag of HTML would be more handy. Now, by default IPS uses span element to store your signature and span is not that friendly when it comes to animating it. The first thing you wanna do is use a div tag to store your signature and give it a custom unique ID. Like, <div id="myUniqueID"> This is a sample signature </div>   Here the id of our div element is myUniqueID. We will be using this ID in our CSS to style this element.   Now, here's the problem, once you use a div tag, your signature will take up the whole place overlapping with some controls in the signature are. Hence, it is a must to use a max-width property to circumvent this issue.   So, here's the basic bare bones syntax of a typical custom signature: <center> <style type="text/css"> /** Styling for our custom div element goes here **/ </style> <!-- Declare a div tag with custom ID --> <div id="myUniqueID"> This is a sample signature </div> </center>   Now, I'm gonna provide an other copy and paste code that shows how to control your signature's element using CSS (for noobs) <!-- Source code for Nick's signature on OSXL --> <center> <style type="text/css"> /* Styling for the root DIV tag */ #myUniqueID{ /** This will control your signature's text appearance **/ } /* Optional if you wanna do something when cursor is hovered (try hovering my signature) */ #myUniqueID:hover{ /* Code goes here */ } </style> <!-- Now we are just going to create a div element with our custom tag --> <div id="myUniqueID"> Please be kind to others. Help us to help you. </div> </center>     That's all that you need to know.   Here's an advanced example of how to use custom code for signature. This is the current source code for my signature. If you have any doubts you are free to ask me about it.   <center> <style type="text/css"> /** Custom animation to shake an HTML element using CSS **/ @keyframes shakeSign { 0% { transform: translate(1px, 1px) rotate(0deg); } 10% { transform: translate(-1px, -2px) rotate(-1deg); } 20% { transform: translate(-3px, 0px) rotate(1deg); } 30% { transform: translate(3px, 2px) rotate(0deg); } 40% { transform: translate(1px, -1px) rotate(1deg); } 50% { transform: translate(-1px, 2px) rotate(-1deg); } 60% { transform: translate(-3px, 1px) rotate(0deg); } 70% { transform: translate(3px, 1px) rotate(-1deg); } 80% { transform: translate(-1px, -1px) rotate(1deg); } 90% { transform: translate(1px, 2px) rotate(0deg); } 100% { transform: translate(1px, -2px) rotate(-1deg); } } /* Styling for the root DIV tag */ #nicksSign{ color: wheat; font-size: 15px; font-family: monospace; max-width: 500px; margin-bottom: 5px; background: #5f32e5; padding: 2px; -webkit-font-smoothing: subpixel-antialiased; box-shadow: 5px 5px 12px 0px rgba(0,0,0,0.75); cursor: default; /* Prevent cursor from turning into a text selector */ user-select: none; /* Make it non-selectable */ } #nicksSign:before { content: attr(data-hover); opacity: 0; position: absolute; } #nicksSign > span { transition: all 1s; } /* Animate only when hovered */ #nicksSign:hover{ animation: shakeSign 2.5s ease-in-out infinite; } #nicksSign:hover span { opacity: 0; transition: all 1s; } #nicksSign:hover:before { opacity: 1; transition: all 1s; } </style> <div data-hover="Thankyou for being here. Greetings from OSXL!" id="nicksSign"> <span>Please be kind to others. Help us to help you.</span> </div> </center>   Lets us know in comments if you have any questions with you custom signature.   Welcome to new new era of Signatures at OSXL!   Regards OSXL   Please note: Funky signatures are strictly prohibited and are not allowed.

    • If you update from Mojave directly, all you need to do is follow the requirements posted here. 'done it on 3 x different Hacks with 100% success each time...
    • @kushwavez agree to a point. Never used windows much on this system. I seem to recall when the system was first bought through I was getting a little bit not load more battery life. But then NVidia dGPU was not disabled.  i was however getting 3+ hours battery life with Ubuntu 18.04 though. Again with NV disabled. As you say could just be the OS but I suspect there is some thing draining since I’ll get jump decreases when doing things like rebooting.  another thing I have seen is that the fans can be noisy and then I’ll sleep the system and wake and the fans have quieted  down and battery drain seems to have slowed.    @Hervé I removed the UEFI disabled method last night and ran a CMOS reset to get back to default settings.  Clover now shows (under Graphics option) both GPUs a present however unable to boot successfully back in to Mojave.    Kernel panic seems to occur followed by a reboot.    I tried removing boot option: -wegnoegpu    tried adding -nv_disable=1    tried adding checking InjectNvidia using FakeId: 0x12345678    any suggestions on how to proceed?
    • Post your Clover folder for review
