Any Greenflower theme experts?
« on: February 24, 2012, 07:29:19 pm »

Hi all.

Couple of questions re the Greenflower theme.

1) What files need modding to make it wider?
2) In admin, clicking the question mark dims the screen and the help screen pops up where it should be. However, it's totally transparent with black text so is unreadable. Any idea which file will change it's background colour?. I have tried to find it in all the theme css files but am not having any luck.

Check background-color property of #GB_window selector, in style_cpg.css ;)

Thanks for that Ludo. I thought the same line myself but no matter what colour I add there, it makes no difference at all. That part of css seems to be over-ridden from somewhere. I have left the help icons up in the public demo at http://www.braytonbarff.co.uk/gallery/upload.php?method=html_single so you can see what I mean if you press the '?'. it seems to be using a lightbox effect, could it be something seperate in those control files?

Do you experience this issue only with Greenflower theme or with curve either?

You change themes/greenflower/style_wp and find:
Code: [Select]
/* MAIN PAGE */
#container {
background:#fff url(images/bg.png) repeat-y left;
margin:20px auto;
width:1000px;
Change the "width" setting to whatever you want.

As I use Curve on my own site without problem it didn't occur to me to try it on this one. I just switched to Curve to try it and it works fine on that one. These help icons are not shown on the Cmine demo so I can't check there. The only mods I have made to the original files are the overall width of site (see above) and the margin to give enough space for 3 thumbs accross.

However, I have renamed this theme greenflower1 and reinstalled greenflower again, clean and unmodified. There is no change, it is still transparent >:(. The clean version is running at the moment as proof. I can just change this back when you have had a look.

There's no need for me to check that clean version :)
Is that background transparent even without any plugin installed?
Maybe it was in my Gallery too when I installed Greenflower, I have to check my files for any hack I had applied :)

This is a complete new install Ludo, no plugins, no hacks except the screen size. Transparent from the word go. The more I check it out, the more pearshaped it goes. Try looking at a picture (there's only one) and note the star ratings, the sort by headings and try resting your cursor over the slideshow and info icons for instance.

I have just downloaded the theme again, re unzipped it uploaded it, cleared all memory cookies etc and re-tried it. Exactly the same. I note that it was tested up to v1.5.12, have there been any changes up to 18 that could cause this?. I think this rules out a corrupt file.

Well, I just rechecked the demo again and all the problems exist there, I guess it's my own fault, I should have checked more thoroughly before downloading it.

The theme greenflower should be deleted from the demo's until someone brings it up to date but unfortunately that's way above my head. Pity, I really liked that one with the top and side menu's.

Thanks for that Ludo. I thought the same line myself but no matter what colour I add there, it makes no difference at all.

Try this:
1) Create a new .css file.
2) Put the value that Ludo suggested into the file.
3) Upload the file to your cpg Greenflower theme folder.
4) Modify the <head> of template.html to call the new.css

[edit]
The file help.php will show this in the <head> of the greybox

Code: [Select]
        <link rel="stylesheet" href="themes/{$CONFIG['theme']}/style.css" type="text/css" />
So it might help to name the file style.css.
AND
It might not be needed in the <head> of template.html.

Thanks for that Joe. You have a super photo gallery there my friend, those hummimg birds are amazing.

I will try this Joe, when I get the chance. Unfortunately there are more errors than this in that theme and I have had to resort to another for the moment. It seems to be missing the hover settings when you rest your cursor over icons. Instead of showing the pop up text it shows the {example} instead. In the thumbnail view the stars don't work and the same as previous also applies, like the attached picture.

I am afraid I don't have the skill to sort all this, too old to learn now. Exactly the one I wanted to use though! :(

For the transparent help screens steps 1-4 worked a treat Joe. Now there is just the star rating boxes and those {whatever}  bits.

Thanks for that.

Looking forward to that Ludo, thanks for the help so far. It will be nice to see it sorted for v1.5.18.

My workaround so far, probably to the anger of admin, was to download cmine 1.4.27 and the 1.4.x version of greenflower and inserted them as a completely seperate gallery on my site and modded it to my own requirements. See http://www.braytonbarff.co.uk/gallery/ .So, it works perfectly. The 1.5.x version is still there http://www.braytonbarff.co.uk/gallery1/ and will be used as soon as it is upgraded. Interestingly, the theme says tested to v1.5.12 so I downloaded that version of Cmine sometime ago so I tried that first. The issues were still present. The greenflower theme thread at http://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/index.php/topic,69645.0.html has not been touched for almost 11 months now so the issues must have been there since then.
