Tuning up Serendipity v3.0

Post by moonchild » Tue Jun 27, 2006 5:36 pm

Hello All,
i like the "Serendipity v3.0" theme but sometime i miss the navigation bar like this is realized in Andreas8. I'tried to use Andreas8 but my layout gets hm... muddled. So, how tricky is it to tuneup the default theme?
Bonan tagon,

Hi!

It should not be that hard. Only a matter of editing the index.tpl file and migrating the code from andreas08 that shows the menu.

Maybe carl can help you out on this more detailed, but's having a very busy week. :)

Best regards,
Garvin

I'm glad about any help, because i'm no coder... 8)

I've tried to insert the

Code: Select all

<!-- Design by Andreas Viklund [http://andreasviklund.com] -->
<!-- Converted to Serendipity by Carl Galloway [http://www.carlgalloway.com] -->

{if $template_option.colorset == 'blue'}
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="{serendipity_getFile file="blue.css"}" />
{elseif $template_option.colorset == 'pink'}
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="{serendipity_getFile file="pink.css"}" />
{elseif $template_option.colorset == 'maroon'}
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="{serendipity_getFile file="maroon.css"}" />
{elseif $template_option.colorset == 'green'}
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="{serendipity_getFile file="green.css"}" />
{elseif $template_option.colorset == 'nuclear'}
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="{serendipity_getFile file="nuclear.css"}" />
{else}


between the homelink...

Code: Select all

</div>

==>here<==

Code: Select all

<table id="mainpane">


and copied the css and config*.tpl files into the Templatedirectory but that's not the thing... 8)

So, thanks for the answer, I'll ask Carl.

I've put a navbar into my version of the serendipity v3.0 template, and it can be downloaded here.

Please be aware that this may not be an exact copy of the version that ships with serendipity so be careful not to overwrite your own version. The two files I've changed are index.tpl and style.css - my changes were done very quickly and haven't been documented or tidied up, also if you copy the style info over to your own template, make sure you copy #navbar, #identity, and #serendipity_banner and their subs.

At present I don't have much time avail to support this, so if other users could help anyone who queries the css/logic that would be awesome.

Good luck, Carl
