Re: 2012 Textpattern Default Theme

@bici

You’ll have to suggest that as a feature idea in the development forum, this topic is/was about the 4.5 front-side theme.

Re: 2012 Textpattern Default Theme

The new standard theme along with the design and the CSS is very much appreciated. A totally modern up-to-date responsive theme!

And after some struggles I have now successfully implemented the Default Theme, Plus the extras as per Phil’s demo here , on a test site which will be my family blog site.

But adding the Slides section proved to be a bit of a challenge for me. I muddled through after downloading the theme from GIThub and tried to implement the slide show but without success. The code to display the three images from the Categories: Slides worked, but styling the images proved to be impossible for me. I realize that this failure is due to my own shortcomings.

I finally had to go to responsiveslides website and download the demo code and used that to successfully implement the slideshow. I ended up using the CSS and the JS samples from the Demo folder.

The one minor issue is that i was not able to add a border and the directional arrows to the Slide div.

Not sure how the documentation on adding the slides should tackled as I wasn’t too successful in my implementation ;-)

Ok bici, I’ll read through my instructions on implementing slides and see if I can improve it somewhat.

Re: 2012 Textpattern Default Theme

I forgot to add that this new CSS “is not your Father’s CSS

I am in awe when I look through the css code. Some of it I don’t understand ;-)

Congratulations. Truly Awesome …

Re: 2012 Textpattern Default Theme

If you’ve got any questions on the CSS just ask .The versions since 4.5 release are slightly simpler since we’ve dropped support for older browsers, so all their hacks have gone (IE7, Firefox 3.x, Opera 10).

Thanks. Is the latest the one that one gets from GitHub?
Also when the default theme gets uploaded the CSS file – it’s all one big long line. it takes a lot of time to break into many lines so that one can muddle through and look in awe at the fine work you have done.

How can we get an “unpacked” version of the css files?

Both the minified and the unminifed CSS is available in the GitHub repo here.

first question. in the flickr.css file it is stated:

/* add this to your default.css, at the end of the @media screen section */

it was really not clear at which point this is in the default.min.css file as there seems to be 2-=3 @media sections. And putting it at the end of the file didn’t seem to work for me.

Can we keep this as a separate file and add a link to call it in the Default Page?

This goes for any other module that we wish to add
