Main site & gallery on one page?
« on: July 04, 2004, 12:17:57 am »

I'm very new to PHP and just need a few pointers to get me going in the right direction.

I'd like :: this page :: which is the main site, to also include the :: avatar gallery ::, when the 'gallery' link is clicked. It should show up where the 'welcome' section is situated now.

I do not want the huge heading graphics from the gallery page.

Also the gallery navigation will be replaced by text only links to be included in the 'header' section of the main site.

This is a struggle for me to get hold of, I have a PHP book sitting here in front of me but I still can't understand 'how to' do this.


Help, opinions, please?

Maybe you like to begin at this point without any knowledge of php ;). Rename and copy the content from theme 'Classic' to themes/your_name. Save the content below into template.html. and replace the file in themes/your_name.

I'm wondering exactly what was changed from the original.  I, too, would like to incorporate coppermine into an existing layout.

basically, <iframe> was used, which doesn't make it a true integration, but offers all disadvantages frames have.

You want me to post the disadvantages of frames? OK, from the back of my mind (incomplete list):
- not bookmarkable
- not search engine friendly
- user coming from a search engine will only see the content of the iframe, not your surrounding page
- ugly scroll bars on the page
- will not work in all browsers
- frame/iframe needs a fixed width, if the content is larger, the page will appear cropped
- litlle control over what others will link to
