Reputation and impresscms traits

I believe that ImpressCMS is mostly known for 3 things __ # being easy to use __ # stable (and possibly fast) __ # complete cms If I understand bootstrap is the more ASP used grid The w3 12col grid is the w3c (mostly used in php?) type of grid. It would be very unfortunate if the easy to use get lost completly in one single part. Can a page "call" for a certain i.e themeX.html ? I'm only a user... so I have only reflexions on these customizationing traits. Happy New Year!

Re: Reputation and impresscms traits

If I understand your post, customizing a theme that is based on Bootstrap is proving to be a little more difficult. Is that correct?

Bootstrap is used by some because it makes it easier to have a responsive theme - one that works in all browsers and on all devices, included the various mobile devices. No one is required to use this, they can select any theme of their choosing.

There have been discussions in these forums about loading different page components based on the page being viewed. You can do this in a variety of ways - using a template variable that is set by the page or module, using Symlinks in the administration area to give you more options in the 'Visible in' property of blocks. Modules can also have their own templates for their content and every theme can override every template in the core.

Ease of use is important to all of us at ImpressCMS - and we'll help clear up any obstacles in the way of our users. Thanks for your support and observations.

Re: Reputation and impresscms traits

This link is also a 12c grid system (1st part) and looks easier. This is the css version, but there is a html somewhere there too. works everywhere, I suppose. https://www.w3schools.com/w3css/w3css_grid.asp (little asp there, but I think w3c is more neutral format... but it's only my guess.) Responsive, yes. I understand that comlexity in letting pages have a theme or letting the theme have a page... etc. >> reflexion A: haveing a master with rows for each 2, 3, 4, 5 cols (grid) >> reflexion B: load several css/html-theme basics that is then injected OR pushed into a page according to what it can accept. >> reflexion C: perhaps the first question should be if the site by default should be built on blanks (module seen as "admin page" + function collection) OR each page by module. It is two ways of thinking. C has its pros since it make all pages basicly the same from start. Then modules never need cloning /copying only functions. one possibility is to control theme-belonging from admin module-mngmt-page. Happy 2018!

Re: Reputation and impresscms traits

One of the big things about Bootstrap is that most people know how to work with it, and there is lots and lots of documentation and training available (books, videos, ...)

I'm finishing off the migration to Bootstrap 3.3.7, but I'm still having some errors that I would like to fix. I notice now that there is nothing like a theme tutorial on the site. I will try to write a fast tutorial based upon the work I had to do for the Bootstrap 3.3.7 base theme.

The Bootstrap 3.3.7 theme will not be ready tomorrow I'm afraid (I have some other things that need to be done tomorrow I'm afraid), but it should be before the end of the week. Sorry for the delay.

Re: Reputation and impresscms traits

I love "freedom!" as the shout of Mel Gibson in Braveheart. <--#--> I was only wondering about why bootstrap is better compared to 12cols "grid" in w3c? <--#--> You think it will be possible to return to easy install also with now used "master index html" for all pages combined? <--#--> I'm only a user but know some about html AND css. I have made a few in training examples with xampp earlier. My conclusion is that the now present themeing possible is a block for peeps at my level. - - Is it possible to use a index1, index2, index3 ...etc (which is set for each module somewhere in a new module) ?

Re: Reputation and impresscms traits

There was a draft of "Impressimizing a Theme" started a while ago - would be good to dust off and revisit.

Re: Reputation and impresscms traits

BTW re. my problem with linebreaks: If I preview the post, or edit it after submission, it looks fine (linebreaks are ok). So it seems that the linebreaks are being stored correctly in the database, but they are being removed when the post is actually *viewed*.

Re: Reputation and impresscms traits

I noticed as well, and it is strange that you are having problems with line breaks and others (like me) don't. I see several possibilities : browser, os, user group. Or worse : a combination

I don't have the opportunity at the moment of testing this in the short term, so I appreciate any help on identifying the issue

Re: Reputation and impresscms traits

You think it is possible to code a "Theme manager" that is more adoptable to 2 or more page-themes? - - and some control-pointer in module-install module (or similar)? < - - .# - -> Is there any Bootstr. 3.3.7 (was it?) yet? <- - # - - > Being the most [easy cms/features] makes reputation // walked.

Re: Reputation and impresscms traits

There is a theme manager block that comes with the system module. If you look at how it works you could probably set the theme for any given page, I imagine it is just one line or variable.

Re: Reputation and impresscms traits

I uncheck the Enable line break whenever I post using the WYSIWYG editors and the line breaks work appropriately then.

Initial post of this reply has the option checked (enabled)

The post displayed properly for me and this section was added with the box unchecked.

Testing Line Break Unchecked Not working for me. Maybe permissions are involved somehow?

Re: Reputation and impresscms traits

Possibly - which editor did you see up until now (I just changed it for registered users)?

Re: Reputation and impresscms traits

I only had access to the old DHTML editor, now I have the WYSIWYG one and the problem has gone away, thanks.

Is this Tiny MCE?
