 I hate this theme
 Posted on: 05/26/06 at 18:08:28

So many hours working on this theme, and all the time, I have hated every minute of it. lol

In case someone changes it, I'm talking about the 0.9.9.1 Standard theme as renovated by me for 0.9.9.2 and 0.9.9.3.

The 0.9.9.6 Standard theme I turned on as default at the other place is nice and crisp. I used the style sheet from it with a few touchups, on the theme files from 0.9.9.3.2, with a few touchups on that too to make it work. Just a suggestion.

Or maybe a new theme, or the built in theme choose from mlapp script?

Banty,

  I thought the same thing. The theme is unique but man, I really think it could be changed for the better, you know?

Thanks Michael, nice to hear someone agrees with me. It's an okay theme and DenDen did a great job on the 3D effects, but after working on it or working on the script while using it for so long, it grew to be sickening.

Kat always likes this theme so I kept working with it.

With some work to the standard theme it could be turned into something much different if that's what everyone is wanting.  Perhaps voting on colours, etc. would be a good route to go before a lot of work is done on it.  Just a thought.

And it is already W3C valid as far as HTML 4.01 transitional is concerned (at least the front page is, I haven't checked the other pages for results)

I brought the Standard theme and inside pages that work with it up to par for 0.9.9.2 BUT it has too many table nesting. I left those there so as not to insult the original designer (somebody at YaWPS I think, hasn't changed much since then really).

I think we should move to one of the newer themes with tables removed. The latest KISS and ColorMe have relative font sizes throughout. No one but me has a copy of the later versions yet.

These themes can be made to look like anything. My2Cents has recently done some incredible things with them.

If one of my layouts are used, I would prefer to keep my tiny credit at bottom right corner. It could be nearly invisible if desired.

The current WebAPP Standard theme both validates HTML and CSS and meets Abywn's theme separator criteria as of 0.9.9.2 thanks to moi. I checked and corrected all the main pages. But still I think we should move on.

I don't think I've seen the two themes you're referring to, but one with less nested tables (or no nested tables) would defintely be better as you said.  If the standard theme was originally developed for YAWPS then it is most likely Open Source (or at least I would hope it is) and changes shouldn't be an issue, but then again, Jos, you have some awesome themes of your own that could easily be used.  And credit should certainly be given.

KISS as being used by WebAPP.org and TrueBlue are both stemmed off of ColorMe as being used at mlapp as default theme. I stripped the colors and tables and have been fooling with adding colors back and increasing compatibility since.

There are some core code modifications to get rid of about 4 of the front page tables in blocks. Those modifications are in the theme folder for those themes, and are in core code for the current mlapp .

There are only a few tiny modifications to theme.pl to make this type of core code work with all themes. It's set up to work and display fully, but 2 of the boxes will look unlike the others until the changes are made to an old theme. Haven't been able to figure out a better way yet. Mostly it works pretty well.

Sure.

If you want to get and try mlapp from the CVS there, you can see how it works. I really think we should break down and finally change once and for all this nested tables we've been forced into by the old boxheader and boxfooter. With those, we are stuck with what we had.

These theme changes are all in the core code of current mlapp , so if you have the theme_subs.pl in your theme folder, it should be deleted to get the full effect. Also references to it in the theme.pl need to be changed to point back to the normal sub.

If you do try it, let me know if you find any bugs or problems, if you could. Okay to post public in the mlapp forum - I'm not shy about my bugs. grin

On, would it be okay with you to install the Theme/Lang chooser here? With a couple of themes - maybe 0.9.9.6 Standard and either KISS or True Blue?
