Dear admin,
I usually take a look at the "Showcase" of the extensions before installing them in my own sites. Of course everyone can see the official demo site but it´s very useful to see adaptations also. So I suggest a "Showcase" forum for chronocomments as well and make my contribution to it:

I am using the latest comments module too.
Thanks :)

Great look angeles, thanks for the idea, I will move this to a showcase forums in a few, what did you do to customize the look ? only CSS changes ? it will be great if you can give alittle info for users so they see how easy it is also! ;)

regards

Max

Hi! Yes, I only did css changes here. In fact, one of the top reason for choosing chronocomments was that the layout is so clean and tidy that I wouldn´t need to make more modifications to make it fit in my site.

Here´s the css as I edited it:

				
@charset "utf-8";

/* CSS Document */

body, h1, h2, h3, img, div, form { margin:0px; padding:0px;}
#container { font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; color:#FFFFFF; font-size:11px; margin-top:20px}
#comments-header { line-height:1.3em!important; }
#comments-header h3 { font-size:24px; letter-spacing:-1px; color:#666666; line-height:36px; margin-bottom:20px }
#comments-header p { font-size:11px;}

#ccresponse{background:#fff;padding: 3px;width: 55px;height: 20px;position:fixed;top: 0;right: 0;visibility:hidden;}
.left { float:left!important;}


For the latest comments module, I used a li tag to make the styling easier for me:

				<li><strong>{name}:</strong> <a href="index.php?option={component}&view=article&id={pageid}#commentID{id}">{text}...</a></li>
