Re: Widescreen, a photoblog template

EddieG5 — Yup, hoping to get it done in the next week or two. Nothing earth shattering, just attempting some modest zem_contact integration and more forgiving treatment of oddly-sized thumbnails, etc.

Gwong — glad you got it fixed. I forgot some .txt extensions in the download and that (understandably) has thrown a lot of people off.

Re: Widescreen, a photoblog template

Ok, it’s not perfect (in particular, the zem_contact_reborn integration is not behaving entirely) but it’s better than v.9.

Widescreen v1.0

information | demo installation | download

1.0 Changelog

  • .htaccess modified to prevent flickering (image refetching) on hover.
    See http://www.fivesevensix.com/studies/ie6flicker for more details.
  • Clicking on a photo now takes you to the previous one.
  • LiveSearch moved into header bar as a popover.
  • Slightly transparent sidebar makes comment form’s “slide” effect less confusing (?).
  • Back-to-top links at bottom of comment form and comment list.
  • Better comment styles and previewing.
  • Better IE stylesheet.
  • Archive: new auto-linked comment “bugs” show number of comments on that photo.
  • Archive: new page navigation icons.
  • About section with optional zem_contact_reborn integration for contact and order forms, although this is buggy in my installation (thanks_form does not work).
  • Opera z-index problems were fixed with Opera 9 :-)

Bug reports welcome. Thanks!

Re: Widescreen, a photoblog template

Googogracie —

Those are sample articles to show how the textile syntax can be used to hook into the CSS styles (e.g. to float images left and right). You can copy and paste them into the content > write tab and post them to the about section, but of course you’ll want to delete the dummy text and modify it to your liking.

It might help to work with a default installation of Textpattern to get the hang of it first. Good luck!

Re: Widescreen, a photoblog template

v1.0… AWSOME :)

Although for some reason my about page isn’t working as expected.

http://www.rovingrob.com/about/

I get a double up.. * about * Purchase prints * About

Strange…. Anyone have any ideas?

Also, thanks form doesn’t work here either. Wonder what is going on there :)

Edit: kind of fixed added this on the about form…

txp:article_custom section=“about” offset=“1” form=“about-list” sortby=“Title” sortdir=“asc”

the offset was making it do strange things. So… Perhaps there is a better way to do this?

Re: Widescreen, a photoblog template

magicRob, I think this maybe the same thing you were talking about, but in case it’s not:

On upgrading to Widescreen 1.0 going to the About page on my son’s site shows two links titled ‘About’ – one points to the Contact form (already displayed), and the other to the proper About page.

So one link should be titled “Contact” – I can’t quite see where the page is getting the title for the link… Anyone using this template help?

Cheers

Re: Widescreen, a photoblog template

I think it’s the same issue. Give my solution a go, see if it works…

Re: Widescreen, a photoblog template

Can I check where you added that line magicRob?

Perhaps you can post your “about” page code and the article-list form?

I can’t follow the logic of the template’s About section…

In the Article_custom line on the About page, if I remove the ‘offset =“1”’ parameter, I get the ‘contact me’ link just fine. But I still have two “about’ links…

Very strange…

Re: Widescreen, a photoblog template

You’re in the right spot… I’m just missing the > < on the line where the bold is
