Re: ImpressCMS 4-col themes for dummies (me) - basics and install in 1.3.10

Q: My intention is to have entrance page 4col and other pages 3col. ...then my question...

Must then theme.html (1.3.10) contain both column set-ups + all css data ?
... or can I use 1 page theme.html 4col AND 1 page theme.html 3col somehow? (I believe each page is simple to make when getting to know the grid principle). theme1.html theme2.html ? ... but I cant find a "users way" to call those...

Solutions, pls!


Merry Christmas and a happy new year!

(if allways using a simple 12col grid it would be possible to make all themes according to a few made up css (originals). Like choosing shoes to your suite.) Can Template Manager be a module?

<p>Thank you for the pointers Madfish. The abundance of available material for Bootstrap is one of the reasons for picking it, next to the reason that we don't want the burden of having to define a CSS framework ourselves. That's not our core business in a way.</p>

<p>I'm puzzled concerning your inability to send line breaks, I'll have a look at the differences in our profiles.</p>

I think Bootstrap is a good choice. The 12-column grid is very flexible and a lot less painful than fiddling around with percentages once you get used to it. Also great for making a site mobile friendly. There is very little Javascript required if you just want to mess with a Bootstrap theme, mainly it's just assigning Bootstrap CSS classes to your existing HTML.

I've been moving away from multi-column layouts recently. Even with Bootstrap the less columns you have the easier things are to adapt to a mobile display.

There's quite a few good (really outstanding) free themes available for Bootstrap (though the page/file size runs pretty high on some of them). I found them pretty easy to adapt for my other project, although I haven't tried it on ICMS yet it shouldn't be too hard.

Good free Bootstrap theme sites include: BlacktTie: http://blacktie.co
Start Bootstrap: https://startbootstrap.com/
Get Bootstrap: http://getbootstrap.com/getting-started/

By the way, I still can't find a way to have line breaks in my posts. If I preview the post (first time) it looks fine, but it ends up with no breaks.

<p>Hi,&nbsp;</p>

<p>those are choices by the theme developer and, ultimately, by the site owner that decides to use that particular theme.</p>

<p>Bootstrap is the most widely-used CSS framework at the moment, which makes it a good platform to use if you want to create themes. By using bootstrap, you accept that certain functionality in the theme will be offered by some Javascript. Some time ago we had a look at what was available with the developers at that moment, and we decided on using Bootstrap for hte newer versions of ImpressCMS. No hostile overtaking, but simply pragmatic team members <img src="https://www.impresscms.org/uploads/smil3dbd4d6422f04.gif" alt="" /></p>

<p>There are other frameworks around, but personally I haven't used them and some of the functionalities that are requested nowadays by the end-user can only be done in Javascript so there isn't a realistic way to write modern themes without it.</p>

<p>As far as I know, there were no changes made tot he Template manager in the last versions. To be honest, I think the only use for the template manager is to fix some small issues in the template of the theme you are using, but in order to make the template manager useful in that scenario, there is some work to be done. The template manager is not integrated with the themes at the moment, and as such it can't offer you the option to download the template set for a specific theme. I think that would be interesting, but it isn't a big priority at the moment.</p>

Re: ImpressCMS 4-col themes for dummies (me) - basics and install in 1.3.10

Was it ordinary community koncensus descission to make /use?

1) JS in such scale?
2) To arrange the Template Set Manager according to 1.3.10 ?

I find it strange that someone doubled the need for knowledge (JS) AND also arranged the Templ.SM with ~100 css /html design "names" that no one can know from before...

.-----------------------
Is this community according to your oppinion fiammybe under some kind of hostile "overtake" ???

If, Do you then know who it is, alias or true name?

Re: ImpressCMS 4-col themes for dummies (me) - basics and install in 1.3.10

<p>In Bootstrap, Javascript is used for a few functionalities that are difficult or impossible to do with CSS only, such as the tabs and some other parts as well (look at the <a href="https://getbootstrap.com/docs/3.3/javascript/">Bootstrap 3.3 Javascript documentation</a> to get an overview).</p>

<p>ImpressCMS also uses some javascript for admin users, for example to give you the pop-up windows when you want to edit a block on the frontend.</p>

<p>Some modules use Javascript, but that's totally up to them.</p>

Re: ImpressCMS 4-col themes for dummies (me) - basics and install in 1.3.10

<p>ok, so I didn't get iTheme to work the way I thought it would... I'm looking at a more modern bootstrap-based minimal theme, that can easily be themed further once it is ok.</p>

Re: ImpressCMS 4-col themes for dummies (me) - basics and install in 1.3.10

I theme is quite rigid when it comes to the major layout,but I will have a go at it tomorrow too se if I can get the column distribution you want.
Another option would be to look at the bootstrap theme. It is basic in the colors and the design, but it is flexible, responsive and mobile ready.

I will try both the themes to get them like you asked

Re: ImpressCMS 4-col themes for dummies (me) - basics and install in 1.3.10

3) Is there any 4col theme design where cols can divide like ~ 20 – 40 – 25 – 15 % … with basic traits?

I have made changes to iTheme layout.html (was it?) .... and have made proper (i hope) arrangements ... but it doesn't take effekt.

I saw that there is nice documentation to templates install.

Re: ImpressCMS 4-col themes for dummies (me) - basics and install in 1.3.10

<p>The symbols you most likely are seeing are the Smarty variables, which enables dynamic content for your pages. A theme consists of both HTML and PHP, along with JS and CSS. An overview was written some time ago about <a href="https://www.impresscms.org/modules/simplywiki/index.php?page=Themes" title="ImpressCMS Themes">themes</a> and <a href="https://www.impresscms.org/modules/simplywiki/index.php?page=Templates" title="ImpressCMS Templates">templates.</a></p>
<p>If you have an example of the layout you are trying to achieve, I'm sure someone can assist with developing or customizing a theme for you.</p>

ImpressCMS 4-col themes for dummies (me) - basics and install in 1.3.10

1) are themes PHP in all cases nowadays? if not, someone fiddles with my programmes, they show in PHP ($-signs etc)... I have been able to get them in slightly more readble (for me, user) listings re-showing as source in mozilla.

2) I try iTheme but cannot get CcolL to widen above 170 ( across centerline and narrow'ing the two right cols). Can I get that center left col to grow right? (boot-strap doesnt help me... didn't understand it actually)

3) Is there any 4col theme design where cols can divide like ~ 20 – 40 – 25 – 15 % … with basic traits? (html, not php?)

4) Have U seen that stupid around who kicked Marc-André Lanciaux?

5) can themes now be installed by lever in admin GUI? Is there a wiki /docu for using that? tag /search word?

Re: Bootstrap admin for 1.3.x

Hi Ricardo,
I'll have to take a look, because as I recall, debianus had to make quite a bit of changes to the templates and the system module code to have the flexibility he needed in the resulting HTML code to use Bootstrap.

The German site serves a theme based on Bootstrap 3.0.3, which is not the latest version. I might have a go at updating it at the end of the month for another site, I'll share it here.

Bootstrap admin for 1.3.x

Hello!

Searching the forums I found the link of a new bootstrap-based admin for icms 2.0.

Do we have any attempts for 1.3.x as well?

Admin side only, for frontend I already downloaded from the German site...

Thanks

Re: i'll be barbecue

Hi Incama, great to be able to work with you again!
@debianus has been doing the difficult job of extracting as much hardcoded HTML from the core functions as possible, with as ultimate goal a totally new, Bootstrap 3-based control panel. It's not totally ready, but we're quite close for a first version if you ask me.

I've successfully integrated the use of command-line composer into the core for 2.0, which means that we use the composer autoloader and have a way of installing some ImpressCMS modules using composer already. One area that is giving me problems at the moment is our installer, so that is the reason why it hasn't appeared in a next alpha yet.

Last time, we were discussing layouts for the backend, if I'm not mistaken. It would be great if we could take that up again. The work debianus is doing is fundamental and is great, but in the end we are still doing the same thing with our control panel, just using new technology. The way we construct the ACP and how we put that on your screen is one of the design challenges we need to face with the project.

Re: i'll be barbecue

Great to have you back, again! @debianus has been doing some great work on a bootstrap-based theme and admin area. See tickets #862 and #855.

It looks like he's getting pretty close on those areas, along with some others, too.

@fiammybe has been working on integrating composer for our external libraries, which will be a big step forward in another area.

I'm looking forward to a great summer for ImpressCMS!

i'll be barbecue

Hello dear ICMS Community.

As I have been very busy doing non CMS related stuff for the past few years, I am eager to contribute to the ICMS community once again starting from 01-07-2015.

Visiting the ICMS communities so now and then, I see that on the UI side not much has changed. On this, I want to contribute as "I did" before.

Although I'm a bit rusty on CSS3, Html5 and Jscript, I know for sure I can help elevating ICMS into the next web age.

Where can I submit my ideas, and who do I talk to spread my thoughts?

Best regards.
Incama

I seem to recall a module that allowed you to create events with a capacity for attendance and then show the remaining spots left. Does anyone know what module this would be? I also need to have/show a cost for the event. Connection to a payment gateway is a plus.
