Hi, I really like the new Lucid skin, this moment I am using the Tiger-skin. and there is it a default option.

I need a way to give my own footer text, what is the best way to do this in Lucid?
preferably only on the album page, I tried it with <custom code) header / css. but my knowledge is to little for this. :(

You need to use the Lucid > Site > Custom code > <BODY> section, which is supposed to put the added material at the bottom of the page. You need to provide your own HTML and CSS styling for it.

You're going to encounter two problems. First, there's an uncorrected bug in Lucid that places this text at the top of the page, rather than the bottom.

Second, because Lucid is a full-page skin, i.e., it is controlling the entire page, without vertical scrolling, there's really no space to have extra material of your own. It might be OK if that extra material appeared only on a top level that consisted of nothing but folder thumbnails, but the skin doesn't provide for that.

So, the skin needs both a bug fix and a feature request before this will be workable.

I don't think this is a bug. If you make a full screen webpage you can't put content below because that would lead to scrolling. Therefore the main content is absolutely positioned, so whatever put in the BODY box will appear in the top left corner (the default placement in the absolute positioned mode). But you can override this with CSS. Anyway, this box is not for adding a footer, rather for adding "custom content", e.g. a counter code or other library call.

The situation I was thinking of is an album project that has a bunch of folders at the top level. In that case, it isn't really full screen, and there's a vertical scroll. You could then put additional text either above or below the thumbnails. Maybe not material after the <body> opening or before the </body> closing, but perhaps a new option in the skin.

(In my own skins, this is often included as "infotxt" that gets planted above or below the thumb table - handy for providing a little explanatory text about the album when it's too wordy for the album description.)
