Re: New admin-side theme

Wow, lovely work! I’ve been using Din recently, but me thinks a new challenger has arrived!

Re: New admin-side theme

This theme actually started out as a simple customisation of Din, but I ended up pretty much rewriting all of it for my own needs.

Re: New admin-side theme

Very nice job!

Fwiw – on the write tab, w/ arc_twitter installed, the “options” header’s background extends to the right of the rest of the right column (into the gray).

Re: New admin-side theme

@maverick

I am aware of the issue with arc_twitter – it’s actually a problem with the structure of the HTML generated by that plugin which I can’t fix with CSS alone. I’ve contacted the author and he’s going to adjust it in his next release.

Re: New admin-side theme

Thanks Phil.

another fyi – in case it helps

I also just noticed a styling conflict with wet_quicklink. The second level navigation bar runs over top of the window that wet_quicklink pops up

Re: New admin-side theme

I’ve updated the theme to beta3, changes are…

  1. Corrected height between ‘form preview’ and ‘form save’ buttons.
  2. Removed z-index of secondary nav bar so it doesn’t interfere with wet_quicklink popup.
  3. Fixed display of category edit form.
  4. Added more hide toggles to ‘custom.css’.

Re: New admin-side theme

Thanks Phil!

You’re being thorough and responsive.

re: wet_quicklink – I’m still getting the overlay. Did a hard refresh just in case is was a cache issue, but didn’t help.

Another heads up.

(I feel lousy bearing issues) :-/

I tested it out on my sandbox install. I have tons of plugins installed there for testing purposes. in the Extension tab, the second nav bar wraps into a double line with all the extension names.

When it wraps to two lines (rows), it overlays smd_admin_theme. It covers the file upload portion almost entirely.

Re: New admin-side theme

:-/

again w/ the bug report.

w/ smd_tags -> tags

There’s a tag search element overlapping (pretty much completely covers) the links for switching between preferences and managing the tags.

Re: New admin-side theme

OK, I’ll look into that later in the week if I get a spare moment. It seems like I’ll have to force wet_quicklink up the layer stack with some z-index styling or something.

I realised a few days ago that there would be a problem if tons of extensions were installed, I’ll have to think of a way round that problem. I’ll also install smd_tags on my test site and see what can be done about that one.

Re: New admin-side theme

Trouble is, there is currently no hard guidelines on how to structure HTML in the admin area so many plugins have their own structures and even their own styling. Even the core admin area has lots of inconsistency in how it’s laid out – it was not until I started theming that I found that out.

Anyway, not grumbling too much, I know the admin area rewrite is top priority of TXP5.
