Re: Textplates '07 Launch

Mine’s there but unavailable, Vladimir. It’s all OK except for incompatibility with zem_ir plugin and permissions on Textplates. fontdir, cachedir and font settings should work but don’t. I’m presently trying to hack the plugin just to make it work on Textplates but not doing so well.

But you can view Minim here if you like. Does it blow your socks off or am I eating wool for dinner again?!

Re: Textplates '07 Launch

Peter, I can’t say anything particular about the template because my eyes (not me personally) can’t stand light-on-dark designs. That’s subjective though. What I can say with confidence is that you are a great writer. :)

Re: Textplates '07 Launch

Ok, so I will take the lack of any positive comment about the template to mean you don’t like the look of it (I’m not surprised because I know I am no graphics wizard) and the never-seen-before possibilities of endless unique layouts for each article, all very easy to do, are not even worth a comment.

Oh well… it’s a good job that I just bought a new chocolate hat! The taste of bobcaps has deteriorated a lot over the years…

Re: Textplates '07 Launch

Peter, I just didn’t dive into all the great features because it needs time to figure out by reading and it’s just painful for me to read about it after a tiring day.

I’ll take a closer look later, I promise, becase certainly a lot of great work has been involved here – it’s notable.

Re: Textplates '07 Launch

Allrighty, the competition is closed and all the templates have been posted…I need a little bit of help though.

To give the submitters’ templates better exposure, I’d like to post these templates on Textpattern.org and Textgarden. Would anyone be willing to help? If so please email me.

Thanks a ton!

Re: Textplates '07 Launch

Vlad, Thanks for any comments you may make. I very rarely receive any constructive criticism.

There is now a minim download available with a style-switcher so it doesn’t hurt your eyes. It hurts mine though – looking at a dazzling bright white light all day gives me headaches. Oh well, it’s a good job we’re not all the same!

Re: Textplates '07 Launch

I’ve posted all the templates on TextGarden and on Textpattern Resources so perhaps entrants had better check them for mistakes. Email me if I need to change anything.

Re: Textplates '07 Launch

I’ve modified the site slightly so that the different competitions have separate links. That way visitors can browse just the new competition designs if they wish.

Re: Textplates '07 Launch

I got bored and wrote a simple ruby script that shows a list of this year’s templates sorted by download counts. :)

require 'hpricot'
require 'open-uri'
require 'cgi'

doc = Hpricot(open("http://www.textplates.com/templates"))

templates = []

(doc/"#main_column > ul:nth(0) > li").each do |li|
	templates << {
		:name => CGI.unescapeHTML(li.at("h4").inner_html),
		:count => /\d+/.match(li.at(".count").inner_html).to_s
	}
end

templates.sort_by { |t| t[:count].to_i }.reverse.each_with_index do |template, i|
	puts "#{i+1}. #{template[:name]}, #{template[:count]}"
end
