      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.

    • None are plug and play. They all need kexts to work. DW1820a need an additional patch but also works, as far as wifi is concern. BT works for the most part. That is what I have on my E7270 currently.
    • @Jake Lo   Is DW1560 or DW1830 plug and play? I read DW1820a had some part doesn't work so that I just afraid I buy incorrect.        
    • Try updating your files with his latest update here https://osxlatitude.com/forums/topic/12521-dell-latitude-3480-help-required-to-finalise-mojave/#comments  
    • Right, I managed to fix my touchpad by using gengstapo's kexts and I tried using his config list in my EFI and my HDMI works but the touchpad isn't so I put my config list back.   I included gengstapos config list, mine and the screenshot with the ACPI error. Thanks so your help, I appreciate it. Eduard. gengstapoconfig.plist.zip MYconfig.plist.zip
    • Those files come from a previous member who was banned for claiming other people's work as his. No need to say more but the files and associated link aren't really welcome...
    • Hmm, those files look like from some of my bootpacks, even down to the directory structure like  /EFI/Clover/kext/Other/LE. I have since changed it to /E/C/kexts/Other/CopyToLE. USB_injector.kext from his files is from Hervé's E6440 guide, so it might not be suitable for the E5440.   Here, replace the attached contents into /EFI/Clover overwriting the old E5440_Catalina.zip
    • @Daniel PN I'm using the same files I uploaded in the guide that you're using, there's no issue with sleep and wake. Do you see blinking power light when system is asleep? When wake, if screen stays dark, try pressing Escape key to see if screen comes back on. If you have the Intel wireless still, try disabling Wifi in the BIOS. I have a DW1820a on this system working nicely.   Note: When you sleep the system and then plug in the HDMI, it's not going to wake the system. You need to have the HDMI connected before you close the lid for the external monitor to stay on. When you open the lid, the LCD will come on as primary and then set the HDMI monitor as extended monitor.
