Mobile admin page

Post by Martin » Thu Jan 17, 2008 11:03 am

I've got me one of them schnazzy ass iPhones, and I'd love nothing more than creating a iPhone-optimized version of the admin page for moblogging.

My question is this; What do I need to do to create a completely separate admin-page for the iPhone? I've peeked around in the admin/style.css and I didn't think it seemed like all the styles needed to completely revamp the admin-area were present.

Hi!

But it does. templates/default/admin/style.css contains all you need to style your admin panel with CSS.

...really? The default admin layout is based on tables...this would be kinda difficult to style.

I have the same problem at the moment...i want to create an admin page for mobile devices. You know, something that fits into smaller screens and is still easy to use.

...and I don't want to mess around with the default templates...I don't think that this is the right way to fix this. Or is this the only solution?

Or did maybe someone come up with a solution to this in the last three years? :wink:
Maybe I'm just to blind to find it...

Regards (and many thanks for S9y),
Bernardo

Hi!

The thread above is quite old; meanwhile, the s9y admin panel does have smarty templates for many areas. Some things still are table based for highest compatibility, but IMHO using CSS you should achieve a lot there as well, plus with the smarty files.

HTH,

Well...during the last days I tried to make a "custom" admin template. But it didn't work out as I expected: I copied the files I wanted to edit into "{mytemplatefolder}/admin" (where the custom "style.css" has to be placed). But all changes to these ".tpl" files didn't have any effect at all.

...it only worked when I edited the "default" .tpl files. But as I said: I don't think that this is the correct way to build a custom template...especially when I need an extra admin template for mobile devices.

So...where is the mistake? :?

Bernardo

Hi!

that's strange, and did you really pick "mytemplatefolder" as your default template then? This really should work....
