Re: [archived] hpw_admincss -- customise the Textpattern admin interface

As redbot and I alluded to already, the value of this plugin, though humble, is extremely practical for just tweaking the styling enough to make it a bit more custom looking for a client site…at least that’s where I see the value.

For those of you who are wanting the all-out customization of the admin side for your own sites, then you’re waiting like the rest of us for what appears when Txp 4.1 comes out (no gaurantees it will be 4.1, but that’s a guess-timate). It’s hoped that we will see complete revamping of the underlying admin code so that it’s not so table-ridden, among other things, then we’ll see the good admin presentation plugins materializing, or maybe we won’t even need a plugin at all because things will be nice and clean underneath.

There are a couple of nice skins floating around already that you might like for personal use. In fact, these have cleaned up the code a bit so any customization attempts would be better aimed using these facelift options, I would think. One by Mary (Admin Facelift) and one by phiw13 (Admin Facelift Take 2). You’ll have to dig. Found them…they’re both in Phillip’s download, here (works with 4.0.3 stable, admin-side plugins may cause problems depending on what you have).

Destry – I agree 100%. That’s exactly what I think

Hi all,

Another thing to note is that by using this plugin you can keep your CSS customisations and tweaks separate from the TXP codebase. Instead, it’s all nicely integrated into your database so when it comes time to upgrade your TXP installation you won’t have to go back and re-apply your changes.

Very nice thing to note, duffe, thanks. That is certainly an advantage.

Re: [archived] hpw_admincss -- customise the Textpattern admin interface

Hey, that’s pretty neat. Just to protect from linkrot, I am copying the plugin into this thread, in case it ever gets lost:

I think this will be actually a lot more useful with 4.0.4, given the cleanup of html-markup and the additional ids/classes.

Re: [archived] hpw_admincss -- customise the Textpattern admin interface

I’ve also added it to Plugin Archives. The plugin file doesn’t have header details, so I gave it version 0.1 in the tables. Be nice to capture the useful details about use in this thread in the associated docs page.

Re: [archived] hpw_admincss -- customise the Textpattern admin interface

Has anyone tested this in 4.0.4? Found any bugs?
