New admin-side theme

Hi there,

I’ve just released my own admin-side theme for Textpattern (v4.3.0 onwards folks), I’ve done some pretty extensive testing in a plethora of browsers but I won’t submit it to textgarden.org until I’m happy it’s working A-OK, you can read about it and download it from this page right about here.

A screenshot…

Hope you find it of use in your projects. Feel free to hack it up and reuse whatever code therein too.

PS. I’ve posted in this forum as I don’t know where else to put the topic.

Re: New admin-side theme

Some plugins have subtabs which are not styled and appear without space between them, which is rather ugly and hard to read.
I have this with problem with gdb_permanent_links and mem_postmaster.
I have seen this issue with other themes as well.

I think a small add to the css would be enough to guarantee some readability, something along these lines:

.tabs a {
display: block;
padding: 1em;
}

I did not try it though.

Re: New admin-side theme

I’ve updated the above theme to beta2 now. Changes are:

  1. Renamed ‘plugins.css’ to ‘custom.css’, now includes optional toggles to hide (via CSS) items in the write/edit screen. More info.
  2. ‘th’ styling is now part of the main CSS (instead of ‘thead th’ styling since many plugins don’t use that structure).
  3. Enlarged publsh/save buttons so they have prominence.
  4. Styling for tabs as used in gdb_permanent_links plugin tabs (which might also benefit other plugins that use the same tab structure).
  5. Fixes for mem_postmaster plugin display.

Re: New admin-side theme

Nice work, but gah! It’s highlighted a bug in smd_admin_themes; namely that the extra dot in the filename (hive-v1.0b2.zip) confuses the importer into thinking it’s an ob2 file instead of a zip file. Humbug, I’ve got me dots in a twist. Really thought I’d fixed that but I guess I got it wrong.

Until I can get round to sorting it out (or Phil adjusts the filename to compensate for my stupidity) for anyone who wants to install it via the plugin, just remove the dot in the middle of the filename and it’ll go up smoothly. Sorry for the inconvenience. And keep up the theme work.

EDIT: actually, it’s a trivial fix. I’ve just sorted it. New version out imminently.

OK Stef, I’ve changed the zip name now. No worries.

Re: New admin-side theme

Haven’t tested this outside Firefox yet but the Preview and Save buttons seem a bit close to each other on the Forms tab. I added 10px margin and it seemed to look better.

Thanks again!
