Re: Widescreen, a photoblog template

Hi

Great theme

I have installed TextPattern and am trying to configure Widescreen. Are there detaiuled installation instructions.

For example the readme says: “Use a text editor to open the Widescreen text files in the Pages folder, and copy and paste them into the appropriate Textpattern page fields.”

WHat are the appropriate fields? the text files provided seem incomplete, where do I get the top part? Sorry if stupid question and thx

Re: Widescreen, a photoblog template

This is on the “about” page

<notextile>
&lt;ul id=“about-nav”&gt;
&lt;li&gt;&lt;txp:section name=“about” link=“1” /&gt;&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;txp:article_custom section=“about” offset=“1” form=“about-list” sortby=“Title” sortdir=“asc”/&gt;
&lt;/ul&gt;
</notextile>

When you go to Presentation > Pages in TXP’s backend, that the ‘page fields’ referred to.
So you would cut and paste the contents of ‘default.txt’ in the theme’s files to the ‘default’ page ‘field’ under ‘Presentation > Pages’.
Some of the page templates you need to create first – eg ‘About’ then paste the theme’s ‘about.txt’ content into that.
And so on.

Don’t worry if some pages appear incomplete, it’s because parts of the page code are bought in from one or more of the ‘Forms’ at the time the page is rendered.

Can I just say that if all this is really confusing, then you may want to play around with an easier template first. Widescreen is a wonderful theme, but it is more complex and specialised than most.

Re: Widescreen, a photoblog template

I haven’t installed this yet, but it looks perfect. I’m off to Tokyo for four months and I wanted something with good looks that I would be familiar with. Very nice work. Thank you.

Re: Widescreen, a photoblog template

I’ve installed this (took longer than expected, but that’s what you get when you start looking at stupid videos on the net) as a demo so i can show a friend of mine and get her to install it on her site, however, i get a string of error code on the top of my page and i dont get the icons (other than search)

tag_error <txp:tru_tags_list break=“li” showcounts=“1” /> -> Warning: max(): Array must contain atleast one element on line 199
tag_error <txp:tru_tags_list break=“li” showcounts=“1” /> -> Warning: min(): Array must contain atleast one element on line 200
tag_error <txp:tru_tags_list break=“li” showcounts=“1” /> -> Warning: join(): Bad arguments. on line 1425

is what i get.

any ideas, please let me know, this will fit her like a glove if i can only get it to work!

Re: Widescreen, a photoblog template

Great theme but if I use any tags my index page doesnt display – only this error “ Fatal error: Call to undefined function: mb_strtolower() in /home2/propelle/public_html/galleries/txp_widescreen/textpattern/lib/txplib_misc.php(459) : eval()’d code on line 49 “

In debug mode, I also get this at the top of my Archive page”

tag_error <txp:link_to_prev> -> Textpattern Error: You have an error in your SQL syntax. Check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near ‘Section = ‘archive’and Status=4 and Posted < now() order by Pos
select ID, Posted from `wscrntextpattern` where 1=1 Section = ‘archive’and Status=4 and Posted < now() order by Posted desc limit 1 on line 61
tag_error <txp:tru_tags_list break=“li” showcounts=“1” /> -> Warning: max(): Array must contain atleast one element on line 201
tag_error <txp:tru_tags_list break=“li” showcounts=“1” /> -> Warning: min(): Array must contain atleast one element on line 202

tag_error <txp:tru_tags_list break=“li” showcounts=“1” /> -> Warning: join(): Bad arguments. on line 1425

I see magicrob has had the first part of this error too.

Any ideas on what I / the system is doing wrong?

Re: Widescreen, a photoblog template

Sorry to be MIA for a while there. Let me try to go in order.

Magicrob and Neil-

“the offset was making it do strange things.”

That’s for sure. My thought was that as long as the “about” article had the most recent published date, then I could reliably replace it with a link to the about section (yoursite.com/about) by using the offset and a section link: sort of what we used to call a “landing page” in the old days. It’s possible I’m missing something and this doesn’t work all the time. Thoughts? Neil — many thanks for explaining the forms and pages; I should probably include a general caveat that it helps to know TXP pretty well before installing this.

Kingkong – Did you remember to edit truist’s plugin to turn clean URLs on?

Damien – Looks like another plugin installation problem. I’m no expert on this stuff. Sorry!

Manitu – You modify the custom field names in Admin > Preferences > Advanced Preferences

In other news, Flickr just came out with geotagging (integrated with Yahoo maps, it appears). Hard to keep up with those people.
