Implementing Tagging Support

In this third part to a four-part article series on implementing tagging support for an ecommerce website using Ruby-on-Rails, you'll learn how to set up the application so users can assign tags to items. This article is excerpted from chapter seven of the book Practical Rails Projects, written by Eldon Alameda (Apress; ISBN: 1590597818).

Implementing Tagging Support - Changing the Style Sheet
(Page 4 of 4 )

The list that displays the tags has a white background, which makes it difficult to tell apart from the rest of the page. Remember that the autocompletion field uses adivelement to show the list of tags. Thedivhas been assigned theid #tags_update, so it is easily fixed by adding the following style topublic/stylesheets/style.css:

#tags_update {
  font-size: 75%;
  font-weight: normal;
  color: white;
  margin: 0px;
  padding: 0px;
  border:1px solid black;
  background-color: #B36B00;

Also add the following style to highlight a tag when you move your mouse over it:

#tags_update li:hover {
  text-decoration: underline;

Reload the page and add a new book again. This time, you should see the tags in a brown box, as shown in Figure 7-2. You can double-click a tag to add it to the list.
