Want to contribute to ImpressCms

Hi to all. Some time ago i had to do some work with Xoops, and i really like it. However i disagree in some points on how xoops is going on.I was looking what do you want for ImpressCms and i really like it, more than xoops. So talking with nekro, a friend of mine, I told him i wanted to participate in ImpressCms.

So if you are agree, i want to contribute in the way is needed. Making documentation, translating or writing code.

I liked A LOT!! the purpose for the new impress theme. It 's great.


Best regards,

Saganxis

thanks for all the motivating comments. I'm ready to work on it this weekend.

But then I do need to know at least the width, because percent and fixed width would have different layouts. If I made the 960 fixed width and then was asked to change to percent it could be I need to redo some of the css and html.

960px fixed with or percent?

"New" Feature: GiJoes Easy Multi-language

I mentioned to Marcan I'd like to propose we use GiJoes "Easiest Multi language" hack in the ICMS core.

Although there are probably better ways to achieve this at a later day, most multi-language methods work the same way - ie by language code "" etc... so this should not effect content overall.

Marcan proposed adding a setting to enable/disable this - with it being set to off by default.

What's everyone's thoughts?

Re: ImpressCMS Theme

Unless I'm mistaken - the colour/image would change on the center banner depending on which site you where on.

Re: ImpressCMS Theme

My 2 cents...

Slice that puppy up and get it online!!!

Nice work Ana!

I honestly didn't think I'd like green, but that really is nice!

Re: ImpressCMS logo

IMHO... #2, but drop the "!"

EDIT: Now that I've looked at the completed layout, Green is good, but still drop the "!".

1. Loose the exclamationmark at the end (!), it's really a steal from Joomla!.

2. The text balloon, what does that refer to?

3. A logo consists of an imagemark and a wordmark. It would be great to have both.

I like the original idea of the base colour for the banner, and the images changing.

Quote:

- What width should the theme be?
I had planned this theme to be fixed width at 960 pixels.



Difficult to say - have any of our design related members approximate figures on resolutions?

I am attaching here template #6 viewed with the logo proposal in green version.

So besides deciding the logo, there's some things of the design in case this one is chosed that need to be decided too.

- What would these small variations be in between themes for each area?

- What width should the theme be?
I had planned this theme to be fixed width at 960 pixels.

About building it:
I can build it using a personal morphogenesis template I use to make most of the things I do. It contains only 1 table and if the styles are disabled it still looks as if it were tableless. If it were fixed width I could try do all the rest of the design without tables but if it were percent that's harder for me and would have to add a couple of tables. In case of percent I'd add tables if the theme were to have the shadow it has now at the sides and if curved corner stretching boxes are needed. If that's ok with you all I can make it like this.

In case of yes. I'd need the requirements defined and if changes are needed, for them to be specified.

Yes - it's good on the corporate identity side as well.
