Wow. That's still a big template. You sure you need to have all those fancy effects? Can we add css classes to remove the large amount of custom css?
Yeah, it's all required and is big because I merged 3-4 templates into one. Might be big, but it's more optimized. We'll be moving some of the CSS off to the site's CSS for all the template we want to retain formatting control over, but that will be with the wiki update. Right now, I'm not even sure this template will stay or not. We're hoping to be able to have users use the same structure we use for the STEP Guides for their own guides. They'd just have to manage and maintain mod pages. It's more work than slapping a template on the page, but templates weren't meant for mass use like this one is designed for. The STEP Guide is less taxing than most of the user guides using the old template that this one replaces...so yeah, very inefficient. At least this new one will cut back on the calls...3.6KBs per call is a large reduction when there are dozens and dozens of these template calls on a single page. Haha!
