Re: Custom @ImpressCMS Twitter Design Needed

Much better! Many thanks. A little tweak of the colors and that will definitely do.

Sorry, linked to the wrong image in my previous post.
Here's the correct link to the Twitter background (dimension: 1920x1707px).

The background on my Twitter page was created with TwitBacks.

Instead of having the background applied automatically by TwitBack I saved the background picture first to my hard drive, opened it with Photoshop and removed the TwitBack logo before I added it manually to my Twitter page.

The picture has a dimension of 1920x1707, instead of 1024x768 from the article.

Re: Custom @ImpressCMS Twitter Design Needed

Good suggestion, but that design doesn't lend itself well to twitter. Keep in mind there are static elements on Twitter you have to work around. A derivative of that design perhaps, but even then you have to accommodate for the wide variety of resolutions (netbooks?)

This is free promotion on Twitter, one of the most visited sites in the world now. Our twitter page is targeted directly at ImpressCMS users who will need a nice design. This will get the designer much exposure.

Don't be shy gang... Throw some more ideas out there! :D

Great idea

But as a suggestion - there's the excellent presentation material we put together for the CMSX show - the design of that would match very well with the current site design ...

But perhaps a new one ready to go with the site redesign could be worked on as well

Custom @ImpressCMS Twitter Design Needed

Hey gang!

Currently, the ImpressCMS Twitter profile is using one of the lame default twitter profile designs and doesn't even remotely reflect our community and the outstanding pool of talent it contains. In the interest of helping the project stand out and attract more users, we'd like to have a custom background and color scheme developed for the project's twitter profile.

To thank the designer, as is the case with nearly all custom twitter designs, the designer is welcome to discretely include the following caption in the design to help gain some exposure for their work....

"Twitter Theme By: http://yourdomain.com/"

This can be placed horizontally or vertically, as long as it's discrete enough to not overpower the ImpressCMS branding.

The main requirements are thus:

* The design and color scheme MUST compliment current ImpressCMS branding
* It should incorporate visual queues that instantly help users understand *WHAT* ImpressCMS is
* It should look highly professional and modern
* It MUST be reasonably lightweight (background file size)

Any takers? It's free advertising! :thumbup:

Well, it is very easy in Drupal because they have a common handler "index.php"

so index.php?q=node/123

which with a little htaccess magic can be easily made into

node/123

then they also have path aliases - which allow you to do

some/path = node/123

then there is a contrib module that gracefully forces and access to nodes with existing alises to their alised path.

its so pretty... and I would love to do this for ICMS... but - we need aliases, we need them to be stored in the db - and we need the header to check the url for known aliases, and serve up the associated page - otherwise its a big old waste of time because everyone is gonna want different url structures.

Re: site.com/content.php?page=XXX to site.com/XXX

Those tips works on 1.1.3, but for 1.2.1, what is the key? Any help? I tried add modules to

RewriteEngine on RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f RewriteRule ^content/(.*)/$ /content.php?page=$1 [L] RewriteRule ^content/(.*)$ /content.php?page=$1 [L]

but no success (my skills about rewrite are a joke)
More: seems that if there are a good solution for this matter, perhaps could be SEO for all IPF modules?
If this matter for content module would be solved, iCMS SEO out the box? (Looking for WordPress and Drupal way)

Re: Email newsletters: HTML vs plaintext quandry

you might check out some HTML mail styling guides. Not all mail clients (Outlook 2003/webmail) has the same support for HTML tags.

You can find an extensive list of things to check out at http://www.anandgraves.com/html-email-guide

Re: Email newsletters: HTML vs plaintext quandry

Ok HTML it is, the provider also allows a plain text alternative version to be sent with it.

I tried putting together a nice 2-column layout, but it doesn't render that well in email clients. So I'm dropping back to a simple single column design without images.

There's 2,000 people on my list so if it doesn't work well I guess I'll be hearing about it :)

Re: Email newsletters: HTML vs plaintext quandry

According to what I've read for best delivery to the most inboxes, email newsletters are best sent as both HTML and text. I kind of like to have both - the text version can't cloak links as easily.
