Re: Widescreen, a photoblog template

Love the template. Strange problem i’m having. On pages other than the current the comment form shows twice and is at the top of the screen. If I remove this tag from the archive page it is fixed but i lose the custom color.
<txp:article limit="1" form="custom-color" />

Nevermind i had “Automatically append comments to articles?” set to yes

Re: Widescreen, a photoblog template

Here is a plugin I created to add a colorpicker to the custom-color field.

Re: Widescreen, a photoblog template

After upgrading Textpattern to 4.0.6 the frontpage of my widescreen installation broke. Namely, it doesn’t show the link to previous photo in the navigation header. However, if you click through to archive and view the same photo form there, prev link works. If I turn on testing mode, I see an error at the top of the main page, like this:

Tag error: <txp:link_to_prev> -> Textpattern Notice: Article tags cannot be used outside an article context on line 1964

Any ideas what have changed between 4.0.5 and 4.0.6 that could have caused this, and how can I fix it?

The front page of the installation is here: http://podorogenarabotu.spb.ru/

Many thanks in advance for any insights.

Re: Widescreen, a photoblog template

I changed mine to use <txp:older> and <txp:newer> instead of <txp:link_to_prev> and <txp:link_to_next>

Matt,

I tried changing header-nav to txp:older/txp:newer – it then works beautifully on the front page, but if you click through to the archive page, next/prev icons stay grayed out always (you can check it out at the site, I left it in for the time being).I do not grasp the change of context between default and archive pages well enough yet to see why that happens.

Re: Widescreen, a photoblog template

Let’s see if I can explain this without confusing you (too much). The default section (your frontpage) is always an article list. Even if you only allow one article to show it is still an article list of one.

When you select an article from your archive you are now viewing an individual article.

Keeping the above in mind, for article list views you need to use the <txp:newer> and <txp:older> tags but for individual article views you need to use the <txp:link_to_next> and <txp:link_to_previous> tags.

I believe you are using a single form template for your top navigation so what you need to do is surround those links with a conditional like so:-

<txp:if_individual_article>
<txp:link_to_next>Next</txp:link_to_next>
<txp:link_to_previous>Previous</txp:link_to_previous>
<txp:else />
<txp:newer>Next</txp:newer>
<txp:older>Previous</txp:older>
</txp:if_individual_article>

or something similar to that to get the exact effect that you need.

Re: Widescreen, a photoblog template

Should be <txp:link_to_prev>Previous</txp:link_to_prev> though.

Here is the relevent portion of the header-nav form

<li id="n-previous">
<txp:if_individual_article>
<txp:link_to_prev>Previous</txp:link_to_prev>
<txp:else />
<txp:older>Previous</txp:older>
</txp:if_individual_article>
</li>
<li id="n-next">
<txp:if_individual_article>
<txp:link_to_next>Next</txp:link_to_next>
<txp:else />
<txp:newer>Next</txp:newer>
</txp:if_individual_article>
</li>

Re: Widescreen, a photoblog template

Thanks a lot! Thebombsite gave the perfect explanation and Matt then quoted the relevant portion of code so I didn’t even have to type anything :)

And everything now works as intended, plus I learned a few things about Textpattern.
