Possible CSS bug

Post by ejellard »

Hi,

I know we're not supposed to report bugs here, so I am not reporting a bug, just asking a question...

I have never come across a case where there's a need to define the same css class twice, but that seems to be done in phpBB3:

Code: Select all

.bg1	{ background-color: #ECF3F7; }
.bg2	{ background-color: #e1ebf2;  }
.bg3	{ background-color: #cadceb; }
and

Code: Select all

.bg1	{ background-color: #f7f7f7;}
.bg2	{ background-color: #f2f2f2; }
.bg3	{ background-color: #ebebeb; }
I've used CSS for a while, but am nothing like as advanced with it as the phpbb team, so don't want to waste their time by submitting this if there's a valid reason that I'm unaware of.

Should I submit this as a bug - the correct one (first code quote) is later in the files, so appears to work normally - but it could reduce the css file size by a few bytes without the second one!

Cheers,
Ed

Cascading... cascading. ;) We re-define colours within the colours.css file - to allow users switching colours completely by only replacing one file instead of all files.

Very nice - learn something every day - up til now I've just done that in PHP (to save HTTP requests I guess).

Thanks for the reply, and thanks for the fantastic forum software!
