TXP Reflection theme trouble.

I am fairly new to textpattern, I am coming from a Wordpress install of my personal site (JesseRoland.com) and I figured out how to install and customize a front site theme, but I am having problems. If anyone has used a theme like TXP Reflection can someone help me figure out why I cannot see my About and Contact pages? Also my RSS and ATOM feed links are not working.

Here is the theme: http://textgarden.org/layouts/65/txp-reflection
My Website: jesseroland.com

Re: TXP Reflection theme trouble.

Textpattern is not quick to change, but it has changed in a few ways over the last 5 years.

You need to reset your RSS link to http://jesseroland.com/index.php?rss=1

and your ATOM link to http://jesseroland.com/index.php?atom=1

Your About and Contact pages are working – but I am betting that you have them to the same Page Template as default. Looking at the template itself, it really only includes two templates: default and archive. My suggestion would be to copy either of them to new templates (about and contact) and then set your sections to those templates. Then just edit them to display the content you wish.

Re: TXP Reflection theme trouble.

The instillation process for themed pages is much more technically involved than any other CMS interface I’ve seen — yet hoping it will be worth it.

I am attempting to install the TXP Reflection theme & cant get past step 1… “You must ensure that the “images” directory of your website has been chmod 777 or you will not be able to upload images to it.

First you could do with creating a category for your images. Go to the “Organise” tab and in the “Images” column put a category name into the text box and save it. I normally create a “Website” category for images I use in my site layout. Call it what you like.”

What I cant figure out is that its calling to navigate to “tabs”… organize “column” images —- Where are these? Tabs and columns of what?

Please help…

Re: TXP Reflection theme trouble.

I think Organize is a quite ancient term for Categories. Once you’re on that page/tab of your TXP admin (you’ll have to log in for moving there) you’ll discover the images “column” quite easy.

Re: TXP Reflection theme trouble.

‘Tabs’ are nothing more than menu items. You are probably not using the ‘Classic’ admin theme, where these items appear as tabs ;) So you need to go to Content > Organise (or is it Categories?).

If you have any more questions about the Reflection theme, you can better post in the Packaged Designs forum, you are more likely to get relevant replies over there.

Edit: …and Uli was faster again ;)

Re: TXP Reflection theme trouble.

Tag errors… displayed in main page @ top.

Tag error: <txp:article_custom form=“recently” limit=“10” section=“article” sortby=“Posted” sortdir=“desc” listform=“recently” /> -> Textpattern Notice: sortby attribute is deprecated on line 717
Tag error: <txp:article_custom form=“recently” limit=“10” section=“article” sortby=“Posted” sortdir=“desc” listform=“recently” /> -> Textpattern Notice: sortdir attribute is deprecated on line 725

any fixes?
thank you

sortby and sortdir were amalgamated into a single sort attribute a few versions ago and the theme hasn’t kept abreast of the changes. Try sort="Posted desc" instead.

You can check up on the latest attributes in the tag reference.

Re: TXP Reflection theme trouble.

Thank you for the fix, I’d like to try it although where can I find the lines to edit? I’ve looked in styles and forms. THXS

Re: TXP Reflection theme trouble.

Also, I’ve been searching everywhere as to change the text on the left column of the main page: “Here’s a spot you could stick some side content relevant to the page you’re on.” to other text — I can’t find the location of this preset text anywhere. Any help is much appreciated.
