Reformatting Perseus Tufts Pages for Firefox

Postby pster » Sat Jan 12, 2013 2:33 pm

I have long hated all the wasted space on the Perseus Tufts pages, but for a variety of reasons (handy translations and commentaries, and a more readable LSJ on click through) still find them easier to use than the much more readable Perseus Chicago pages. I have finally figured out how to get rid of that crappy sidebar on the left. If you use the Tufts site a lot and use Firefox here's what you do (If you use a different browser, you're on your own.):

0) Install GFS Porson fonts on your computer. (If you prefer a different font, you can substitute it. Or if you actually like the default font, just remove the .greek part of the syntax below.)

1) Install the Stylish add-on for Firefox.

2) Create and enable the following style:

@-moz-document domain("perseus.tufts.edu")
.greek { font-family: "GFS Porson" !important; }

#left_col {display: none !important;}

#center_col {
float: left;
margin-left: 0% !important;
width: 51% !important;

#right_col {
float: right !important;
margin-left: 0% !important;
width: 49% !important;
