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

if I manually would "walk around" and fix each "blank-module page" themeing manually, does that contain any problem for future of my site?    //  //

Have a look at the old Anatomy of the Default Theme document. You can read about the basic structure of a theme and how Smarty works. This is an old document, so it still uses tables to control the layout (now we mainly use div and span), but the general structure of a theme has not changed much.

You can think of Smarty as a placeholder for a piece of data, kind of like a variable. In your PHP script you can assign values (including snippets of HTML) to smarty variables, and they will be output in the theme at the desired location.

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

My problem is several since I want a 3 + 4 cols site (non centered).

"master index /theme"  ==> 3 cols and 4 cols (my widths).

To understand the doings and really manage my site I must understand:   Theme manager   /master-html &css    /theme-widths(accordingly)   /OR working around manually together with mentioned factors.

Being a newbe its often possible to start lean and work uppwards. In this case theme and procedure around must be deconstructed as a whole before understanding and building up my stuff. One must see the complet steps of the coder to understand the nube situation.

From simple upwards is easy - To deconstruct the whole "big part" is very complex.   (I don't handl this and and also requested a price suggestion via PM).

Another way to do it would be to find a theme that has roughly the columns you want, and start modifying it to suit your needs. You do not need to know much about html or css, I only use the basics, and have no clue at all about Javascript. That doc should cover enough to get you started.

This is so stupid... I allready have 3 & 4 cols but I don't manage to reagerange widths. ... still the problem also is that I'd like a true template, not the fix and trix stuff that I'm now into. And really... I'm not sure how the menue positioning can allow 3 and 4... ist almost like the themes in my space is not connected to my site.

I am working on an updated version of the Bootstrap3 theme on Github : https://github.com/fiammybe/impresscms-theme-bootstrap3

This will be a cleanup and a small evolution based on the things I've learned working on the new design of the ImpressCMS site. 

After that, the big goal is to get a Bootstrap4 version up and running.

I installed themes (bootstr3.0.3 /yours) some time ago. It seemed to install, but the reaction of template mangr-module was slightly wrong (I think). Is it possible to reverse this install?

Hi,

sorry for the late reply. To uninstall a theme, you need to do 2 things.

  1. You need to go to the admin Control Panel (ACP) and choose another theme as standard in the ACP -> Preferences -> General Settings -> Default theme
  2. You need to remove the folder of the theme from your server. Currently that is not yet possible from within ImpressCMS, you will need to use a FTP program or one of the tools hosting providers offer to upload/remove files on your hosting solution.
