Re: Widescreen, a photoblog template

Hi everyone,

I forgot to list my site’s URL: http://www.worwood.net

I am not going to upload all my photos until I have the system sorted.

Thanks,

Mark

Re: Widescreen, a photoblog template

Hey Mark,

If you’ve already created an “about” section and pasted/saved the template stuff as an “about” page under the Presentation > Pages tab, all you have to do is post a new article to the about section. By default all new articles are posted to the archive section, so you need to change the section drop-down (in the right-hand column under Sort and Display) to “about.”

You can post multiple articles to the about section; in Widescreen the most recently-dated one will appear up front, and the others will be available as links in the sidebar of the section.

Hi James,

Thanks for your prompt answer to my question.

What you wrote makes perfect sense. Now all that I have to do is tinker with the content.

Cheers,

Mark

Re: Widescreen, a photoblog template

hi i have had an instance of this template running for a while now and comments neve worked.
That never bothered me but these days its starting to get a bit of traffic so i really want to get this working. Before if i added a comment the layout would break all over the place. Then I had the site modified a bit. Now If i try to add a comment now it will just say commenting closed for this article although the accept comments preference is set to yes.
Can anyone tell me if they’ve had a similar experience or where to start trouble shooting.

here is the url to see for yourself.

Re: Widescreen, a photoblog template

Kevin —

That’s weird. It sounds like a Textpattern issue. Is “accept comments” set to Yes in Admin > Preferences?

Re: Widescreen, a photoblog template

Hi, I am captured by widescreen too. All running well , except the images don’t show:
i get:
<ol id=“thumbs”>
<li><a href=“http://jakbop.nfshost.com/widescreen/archive/2/brave-son-ralph-infant-on-car” title=“Brave Son Ralph Infant on&#160;Car”>
<img src=“http://jakbop.nfshost.com/widescreen/
images/t.jpg”

for picture and thumbnail, as if the custom-field 1 was empty, but it isn’t.

Actually this is the second install i made on the same server, with the same result (at first I tried putting it in with my root textpattern installation, but then decided to go for a dedicated second engine in a widescreen folder after reading a post by James)..it got too confusing anyway.

Well I definatley need help with this. THis is the best, as if I wrote it myself!(joking).
Cheers, JOhn

Re: Widescreen, a photoblog template

….I suppose it’s something to do with this tag, in the form=“archive”:

<img src=”<txp:site_url />
images/<txp:custom_field name=“Image-ID” />t.jpg”
alt=“Thumbnail of <txp:title />” /></a>

My custom field is labelled “Image-ID”, and the image id “2” is there in the images folder, uploaded.
I can see the image ID and view the image in the content/images list, with thumbnail.

Re: Widescreen, a photoblog template

Well, I tried substituting the <img src=”…> code for <txp:custom_field name=“Image-ID” /> and placed <txp:image id=“2” /> in the Image-ID custom-field

But still no success- an empty string. I can only think there must be a problem with the SQL and image urls, returning an empty field.
