Title: ChaoticSoul - Theme for CPG.1.4x and WordPress 2.x
Post by: Gizmo on December 30, 2006, 03:39:50 pm
Hi All and Happy New Year!

It's been a while since I've posted a new theme but with the holiday season winding down, I've found some free time to work on a new theme. This one is called ChaoticSoul by Bryan Veloso (http://sandbox.avalonstar.com/). It's a nice dark theme to which I've added some cool features. This theme should be fully compatible with most of the major browsers (I tested it with FF (1.5x & 2.0), IE (6.x & 7.x) and Safari at various monitor resolutions) and the width will accommodate monitor sizes from 1024 on up without having to horizontal scroll.

I've overwritten some of the configuration settings by using variables in the theme.php file and added a new variable for retrieving the album description (see below for more!). The reason for this is to prevent the standard settings in the Configuration tables set by you from "breaking" the theme. These changes are:
Code: [Select]
// These parameters overide what the user inputs in the Configuration setup to prevent the theme from breaking.
$CONFIG['max_film_strip_items'] = 5; //overrides the number of thumbnails.
$CONFIG['thumbcols'] = 4; //overrides the number of columns for thumbnails.
$CONFIG['main_table_width'] = '100%'; //overrides the Width of the main table (pixels or %).
$CONFIG['picture_table_width'] = '100%'; //overrides the Width of the table for file display (pixels or %).
$CONFIG['album_list_cols'] = 2; // sets "Number of columns for the album list = 3"
$CONFIG['first_level'] = 0; //sets "Show first level album thumbnails in categories = no".
$album_desc = get_album_desc($_GET[album]);

I've added two features to this theme. One is an album description truncation function added to the theme.php file. When viewing the index or categories pages, albums with long descriptions can make the page look cluttered. This function will truncate the description to a set number of characters (default is 30) and add a set of padding characters (...) to the end to alert the visitor that there's more text. When you view the album, the full description is printed at the top of the page. To edit the number of characters in the truncated album description, find in 2 places in the theme.php file - '{ALB_DESC}' => myTruncate($album['album_desc'], 30, " "), and change the number (30) to any length you desire. For this theme, I have it set to give a single line of text which provides a nice look to the theme. You can also change the padding characters (...) to any other set of characters by editing function myTruncate($string, $limit, $break=".", $pad="...") in the theme.php file.

The other enhancement is the addition of a frame around the photo when viewing intermediate images. This was added from a post by dereksurfs - http://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/index.php?topic=38873.0 (http://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/index.php?topic=38873.0) and is very cool. Many thanks Derek for working this out and sharing!  :D

Please enjoy this theme and all I ask is that you keep the credit line in the template.html to help support my efforts to develop and port themes for Coppermine.

Cheers,

Gizmo  :D

Demo (http://coppermine-gallery.net/demo/cpg14x/index.php?theme=chaoticsoul) - Download (http://downloads.sourceforge.net/coppermine/cpg1.4.x_theme_chaoticsoul.zip) Download (http://downloads.sourceforge.net/coppermine/cpg1.4.x_theme_chaoticsoul_v1.3.0.zip)

The {CUSTOM_HEADER} token should reside outside the first wrapper div and right after the body tag. I changed this on the demo page.

Outstanding work!

Thanks for this very cool theme. :)

However i faced some problem when i tried to update the header, link etc. The back ground was gone and the layout went hay wire, as in the side menu became at the bottom of the page. Any idea why is this so?

Post by: Gizmo on January 19, 2007, 10:08:45 pm
Well, without a link to your troubled theme, it's a wild guess but here goes. First, the header is actually 2 images as defined in the below css code.
Code: [Select]
.image_header {
background: #22201d url('images/image_left.png');
border: 1px solid #363430;
height: 149px;
width: 421px;
}

.bkgleft { background: url('images/image_left.jpg'); float: left; }
.bkgright { background: url('images/image_right.jpg'); float: right; }

What you need to do is make sure that your images are the same size as the above otherwise it might cause the issues that you're experiencing. If this isn't the problem, you'll need to post a link.

Use a text editor to change the file, not a fancy html editor.

This is not related to your issue but there is a minor issue with admin menu in this theme

under theme.php (line 119)
Code: [Select]
<li><a href="util.php" title="{UTIL_TITLE}">{UTIL_LNK}</a></td>

should be

Code: [Select]
<li><a href="util.php" title="{UTIL_TITLE}">{UTIL_LNK}</a></li>

Gizmo,

Nice Theme  ;)

But there're some cosmetic issues.

1/ Work well with Firefox, but with very small characters (HERE (http://www.pays-dignois.com/galerie/index.php?theme=chaoticsoul))

2/ Under IE 6.x, it's a nightmare !
Nothing on the right place (i compare vs FF)

I have not an esoteric PC-confic...(local)
It's very strange those differency beetween this two browsers !


[edit] it's appear, this one theme is not fully compatible with old cpg 1.4.x, but with 1.4.10  ??? Can'nt understand  ???

Thanks Sami, I saw that mistake the other night. I'll be correcting that and also adding a bit of code to handle the large intermediate images in the demo.

Hi PYAP, in the sites and browsers that I've tested the theme on as well the CPG demo site, it seems to be working fine. Not sure what the issues are in your IE6 install but it also looks bad in IE7. Shall we work on this to see what that problem is?

akhlan has ported this theme to be used with Stramm's modpack. If you're running the modpack and want to use this theme, read the thread "ChaocticSoul theme adapted for the ModPack (http://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/index.php?topic=45164.0)"

Title: Re: ChaoticSoul - Theme for CPG.1.4x and WordPress 2.x

Most user-contributed themes have a separate announcement thread of the sub-board "cpg1.4 theme contributions (http://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/index.php?board=64.0)". If you have issues with a particular user-contributed theme, make sure to have checked the corresponding announcement thread on this board. There is a fine line though between asking a valid question or posting a valid remark on a particular theme and cluttering it by asking for individual issues. If you're not sure if your questions belongs into the announcement thread, start your own thread on the support board. Your post should contain a link to your coppermine-driven gallery and a link to the theme announcement thread.

Hello! Nice theme! But I really would like to have thumbnails on my index-page, how do I change that?
Title: Re: ChaoticSoul - Theme for CPG.1.4x and WordPress 2.x
Post by: Joachim Müller on September 18, 2007, 04:08:35 pm
Using this theme, the thumbnails show up on the index page (try it for yourself on the demo (http://coppermine-gallery.net/demo/cpg14x/index.php?theme=chaoticsoul)). If this is not the case for you or you want to accomplish something else, do as I suggested just one posting above yours: start a new thread of your own on the support board, posting a link to your gallery and this your posting on this thread.

Hi there
Love the theme just have a question regarding the bulk upload option I keep getting errors has that been overwritten or is it standard with your theme?

Start a separate thread of your own on the uploads sub-board, doing exactly as suggested in the upload troubleshooting section of the docs. Probably not related to the theme.

Gizmo, thanks for porting this to cpg. Looks awesome. I do have one question.. the Chaoticsoul theme for wordpress that i found on the net is not prepared for widget use and looks to be outdated. Do you know if there is a modernized Chaoticsoul theme out there which does do widgets ? Or do you know how much work it would be to update the existing theme ?

Cheers
Hein

I've been trying to customize this theme and I really don't like the frame it places around intermediate image pages. That whole center box is scrolling horizontally because of them. How do you disable this?

Example: http://scott-d.net/displayimage.php?album=random&cat=3&pos=-49
In FF it scrolls and in IE it messes up the nav on the right side.

edit: nevermind. figured it out.  ;D

Post by: scotty588 on November 20, 2007, 09:26:09 pm
Sure. Heres what I did.

Original code from theme.php
Code: [Select]
// HTML template for intermediate image display
$template_display_media = <<<EOT
   <tr>
     <td align="center" class="display_media" nowrap="nowrap">
       <table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" class="imageborder">
         <tr>                                                                             
           <td><img src="./themes/chaoticsoul/images/frame/UL.gif" ></td>
           <td background="./themes/chaoticsoul/images/frame/Top.gif"></td>
           <td><img src="./themes/chaoticsoul/images/frame/UR.gif" ></td>
</tr>
         <tr>
           <td background="./themes/chaoticsoul/images/frame/LS.gif"></td>         
           <td>                       
             {IMAGE}
           </td>
           <td background="./themes/chaoticsoul/images/frame/RS.gif"></td>               
         </tr>
         <tr>
           <td><img src="./themes/chaoticsoul/images/frame/LL.gif"></td>
           <td background="./themes/chaoticsoul/images/frame/Bottom.gif"></td>
           <td><img src="./themes/chaoticsoul/images/frame/LR.gif"></td>
         </tr>
       </table>
     </td>
   </tr>

Altered code. Produced a simple thin white border
Code: [Select]
// HTML template for intermediate image display
$template_display_media = <<<EOT
   <tr>
     <td align="center" class="display_media" nowrap="nowrap">
       <table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" class="imageborder">
         <tr>
           <td background="./themes/chaoticsoul/images/frame/LS.gif"></td>         
           <td>                       
             {IMAGE}
           </td>
           <td background="./themes/chaoticsoul/images/frame/RS.gif"></td>               
         </tr>
       </table>
     </td>
   </tr>

Hi All,

Here is a updated version of the ChaoticSoul theme. A list of upgrade and fixes are:


I added a script for resizing large intermediate images so they fit correctly on the intermediate page. The images are currently set for a width of 400px. This means any image with a width larger than 400px will be resized down. But an image less than 400px wide will be increased to 400 which may distort the image some. Most people leave the config default set to 400 so it shouldn't be a problem in most cases but you are now aware of this.

I've tested this theme without issue on FireFox 3.0.1 (Mac & PC), Safari 3.1.2 and IE 7.0.5.X (PC). Sorry I do not have IE 6.X on my PC and will not test this browser version. As always let me know here if you encounter any problems.

Billy

[Update - Aug. 10, 2008] I've posted a new improved version here (http://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/index.php/topic,39753.msg264999.html#msg264999) with additional details.

Thanks for the fantastic work. I have replaced the version in the downloads section and the demo with the new one. Version 1.0 used to have 13911 downloads when I replaced it with version 1.1 (which will make the download counter start from 0).

Post by: Gizmo on August 10, 2008, 03:16:46 pm
Hi All,

The fix for truncating large image descriptions has been found and fixed. I had to remove it as this issue was what was causing the user galleries to display all messed up. I spent a lot of time looking for the error and testing to make sure it's correct now so I've incorporated into this new upload (Chaoticsoul version 1.2). Now if you have long image descriptions, they will be truncated when displaying within an album or on the strip of latest uploads or randon file but displayed in full when viewing the image on the intermediate page. This will make the albums look cleaner without all the text underneath the image.

Cheers and thanks for your patience.

Billy

Gizmo, thanks for updating all of your themes  8)

I'm replying here since it seems directly related - Something has changed from the previous theme, and I don't know yet if it's all the themes you updated or not since I've only had time to test chaoticsoul so far.  There seems to be some conflict with javascript.  I've been using lightbox for some time on the previous theme with no trouble.  On this updated theme, lightbox won't work, highslide (or enlargeit!) some image scrollers etc.  They all work fine on the older theme though.

Any idea what has changed that might have caused this incompatibility?

Ok, I setup lightbox with the updated theme from scratch - so right now the site is your bear updated theme with the newest lightbox release and scripts in place as per your thread here (http://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/index.php/topic,35539.0.html), which is what I've been using for a long time on the previous theme with no trouble.  It just doesn't work on the new theme, but when I switch back to the old theme it's fine.

Hi Gizmo,
Thanks for the great theme!

I have a question about the background colour of the photo gallery. I'm trying to change it from dark gray to white but it doesn't seem to work. I can change the colours of all the other things (main background, buttons, etc) but not the photo gallery background. I know the colour code for it is #1b1814 but I changed all the #1b1814 to #FFFFFF and no success. I also took a screen shot to find the colour code (#161410) and did a search on all the documents, but no success. It's a super basic question but nothing is working. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

My site is: http://www.torontostyles.com/aces

This is the post structure of my style.css where I found the code #1b1814 (it has been changed to ffffff)

Certainly not. Java is not involved. .You probably meant JavaScript (which is an entirely different animal). As you appear to lack the skills, you better leave it to my judegement to decide wether your post belongs here or into a new thread. Anyway, it's up to the supporters here to decide wether you're required to start a new thread or not. If I tell you to start a new thread, you start one or get unsupported - that's how a support board works: I'm not ready to argue with you about board policies. >:(

Joachim beat me to the post!

@Fabrian, I got the code to work in 1 minute. Go back and read the LightBox thread (http://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/index.php/topic,35539.0.html) very carefully and pay attention the instructions. If after that and you still need help, start a new thread and I'll answer there.

To all others, this thread deals with issues on the ChaoticSoul theme that hasn't been edited, hacked or plugins added. Basically if you download it and see problems with the native theme then please post here.

If I tell you to start a new thread, you start one or get unsupported - that's how a support board works: I'm not ready to argue with you about board policies. >:(

I have no desire to argue either, but please don't put me beneath yourself or threaten me, it's uncalled for - I was trying to help, I'm not a polluter here.  If you want to flex your support board muscle, then delete my post, ban me or whatever else makes you feel better.

Joachim beat me to the post!

@Fabrian, I got the code to work in 1 minute. Go back and read the LightBox thread (http://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/index.php/topic,35539.0.html) very carefully and pay attention the instructions. If after that and you still need help, start a new thread and I'll answer there.

To all others, this thread deals with issues on the ChaoticSoul theme that hasn't been edited, hacked or plugins added. Basically if you download it and see problems with the native theme then please post here.

Billy

Thanks Billy.  I'm really surprised since I thought everything was fresh and clean on my part.  Oh well!!  I'll have to  find out what I did wrong - sorry for troubling you for nothing then.

BTW, I didn't forget about that thing...  I'm hoping to have time tonight.

Thanks again, your work is greatly appreciated, Billy.

Butt out of this thread with your individual issues - do as I suggested and start a thread of your own instead of cluttering this thread even further. I mean it!

love this theme , only one issue... i for some reason with a completely fresh install and this theme cannot remove the filenames for the thumbnails, even though i've taken them to "off" in the configuration page, the filenames for all images shows below the thumbnails. Does not look very good as it makes all the pictures separate very far :(

edit: never mind im stupid! it was the jupload plugin that i forgot to properly setup, sorry about that!

another edit:

would like to ask the author gizmo of this theme if he knows a easy to way to get next & previous tabs for the thumbnail view on this theme, there are several of mods but none of them seem to work for this specific theme!

thanks!

Your question doesn't belong into this thread, as the question is not related to this theme. Start a thread of your own.

Hi Gizmo,
I really love this theme! It looks pretty awesome on FF3 but on my IE7 installation, it looks kind of strange. it is completely left-aligned and the fonts are far bigger than in FF3.

Please have a look on your own:

Anything i can do?

Thank you and greetings,

Hi Farnsi,

The link you provided looks the same for me on FF3, IE6 & IE7. I'm running Parallels on a Mac with separate vm's for IE6 and IE7 so maybe it's on your end. Hopefully someone else will come along and be able to check tonight for you. I'm glad you like the theme!  ;)

I really love the theme and i kind of think that the ones who use IE7 have bad luck..BUT ~30% of my users are IE-users..
Enclosed you find a screenshot of my problem. I can't tell why this is happening, seems like the gallery doesn't want a new theme.. >:( ;D

Hi Farnsi,

Again it looks fine on IE7 for me but I did notice the 2 vertical lines left of the menu in your attached image. There should only be 1. See my IE7 image attached.

OK... let's try this, can you upload a new version without Stramm's modpack integrated and if it's still not right try deactivating some of your plugins. I'd like to get this working for you but it looks right on my machine.

Hi,

Love this theme, but i need some help doing hyperlink of the header images to the gallery home.

I've managed to do this, but it's not proper coding:

template.html:

Code: [Select]
<div id="headerimg" class="clearfix">
<div class="image_header bkgleft"><a href="http://mygallery/stuff/"><img src="http://mygallery/stuff/themes/chaoticsoul/images/image_left.jpg" border="0"</a></div>
<div class="image_header bkgright"><a href="http://mygallery/stuff/"><img src="http://mygallery/stuff/themes/chaoticsoul/images/image_right.jpg" border="0"</a></div>
</div>

This does work in firefox, but in both explorer and opera the output is buggy.

Is there any proper way to make the head images a hyperlink to the gallery home?

Thanks for the awesome work on this great theme :)

I don't know what you mean by buggy but your code is buggy so you'll need to make the changes like below. In the future include a link to your gallery or include images or more information. Buggy doesn't really tell us much.

If you want to make both images have the same hyperlink:

In template.html:
change:
Code: [Select]
<div id="headerimg" class="clearfix">
<div class="image_header bkgleft"> </div>
<div class="image_header bkgright"> </div>
</div>

to:
Code: [Select]
<a href="http://mygallery/stuff/"><div id="headerimg" class="clearfix">
<div class="image_header bkgleft"> </div>
<div class="image_header bkgright"> </div>
</div></a>


In style.css:
change:
Code: [Select]
#wrapper, #headerimg {
width: 860px;
}

to:
Code: [Select]
#wrapper, #headerimg {
width: 860px;
cursor:pointer;
}

Hey Guys I'm just starting to get acquainted with Coppermine and this theme.

I have a couple of questions, is there a way to disable the white frame around the pics?

And where do I change the settings for the pop-up when u click on a pic? (right now when I click on a picture it doesn't open a new window with the picture in its real size).

If it might help, this is the website I'm talking about: www.estrella-photos.com/Coppermine

@Go7enKs ,

You can remove the frame from the Intermediate image by removing the following code from the theme.php file
Code: [Select]
// HTML template for intermediate image display
$template_display_media = <<<EOT
   <tr>
     <td align="center" class="display_media" nowrap="nowrap">
       <table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" class="imageborder">
         <tr>                                                                             
           <td><img src="./themes/chaoticsoul/images/frame/UL.gif" ></td>
           <td background="./themes/chaoticsoul/images/frame/Top.gif"></td>
           <td><img src="./themes/chaoticsoul/images/frame/UR.gif" ></td>
</tr>
         <tr>
           <td background="./themes/chaoticsoul/images/frame/LS.gif"></td>         
           <td>                       
             {IMAGE}
           </td>
           <td background="./themes/chaoticsoul/images/frame/RS.gif"></td>               
         </tr>
         <tr>
           <td><img src="./themes/chaoticsoul/images/frame/LL.gif"></td>
           <td background="./themes/chaoticsoul/images/frame/Bottom.gif"></td>
           <td><img src="./themes/chaoticsoul/images/frame/LR.gif"></td>
         </tr>
       </table>
     </td>
   </tr>
                <tr><td>
                                                <table width="100%" cellspacing="2" cellpadding="0" class="tableb">
                                <tr>
                                        <td align="center" class="admin_menu">
                                                {ADMIN_MENU}
                                        </td>
                                </tr>
                        </table>





<!-- BEGIN img_desc -->
                        <table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tableb" width="100%">
<!-- BEGIN title -->
                                <tr>
                                        <td class="tableb"><center><b>
                                                {TITLE}
                                        </b></center></td>
                                </tr>
<!-- END title -->
<!-- BEGIN caption -->
                                <tr>
                                        <td class="tableb"><center>
                                                {CAPTION}
                                        </center></td>
                                </tr>
<!-- END caption -->
                        </table>
<!-- END img_desc -->
                </td>
        </tr>

EOT;

This will leave a small white border around the Intermediate image which you can remove by editing the style.css file.
find:
Code: [Select]
.imageborder {
        border: 0px solid #aaaaaa;
        background-color: #FFFFFF;
        margin-top: 20px;
        margin-bottom: 20px;
        margin-right: 2px;
        margin-left: 2px;
}

and remove
Code: [Select]
background-color: #FFFFFF;
As for the popup image, are you sure your fullsize images are there? What changes to the theme have you made?

I have a couple of questions
...but we have a strict "one question per thread" policy that you agreed to respect when signing up. Particularly on this announcement thread you're not allowed to ask for support on unrelated things, and especially not for your individual troubles that are unrelated to this particular theme.

And where do I change the settings for the pop-up when u click on a pic? (right now when I click on a picture it doesn't open a new window with the picture in its real size).
Happens because there's something fishy on your server: the JavaScript file that will fire the pop-up is there, but can not be access: when trying to access http://www.estrella-photos.com/Coppermine/scripts.js I get a 403 forbidden error. Fix that and your pop ups will work. Not related to coppermine in itself, but webserver setup. If you can not figure that out on your own, ask your webhost for support. Doesn't belong into this thread though and you shouldn't have started that discussion here, so do not reply to this thread!

I am trying to implement the style.css page into my website and everything is working fine except when I try to type in the main content to the left of all the menus in the side bar, it countinues through to the right side of the page or it automatically creates a horizontal scroll bar in the main content frame instead of automatically wrapping the text to the next line. I have double checked everything and can't figure out what I am doing wrong. Does anybody have a fix for this? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks........

It's great theme, but I have problems with some plugins. I try Slider, then iScroll and Slideshowit, but have not to see pictures on homepage. Slider works better. It works for some days and then is empty. When change theme thouse plugins work, but when rollback Chaoticsoul, they didn't. Any ideas?
