View Full Version : New Template doesn't like BROWSE?
09-26-2006, 02:58 AM
I've just launched a new template and I'm not sure why the option for only tiling a chosen # of thums isn't working. I realized I've hacked the crap out of the code to render my elastic template but ? :confused: ?
Also, Everything seems to validate but I don't have access to any other browsers besides FF and IE which seem to work for me. If anyone can test in other browsers and give me a heads up it would be much appreciated. (I realize the border breaks for super long entries)
And question is: did you put proper tag for paged archive or jsut put for all of them on one page?

it's not my aesthetic, but it is working in Opera
I do not understand why that hand at the left holds a kidney on a string ;=(
and as always, I fired your site to the validator (see the many postings here on that topic) and there were some errors
Character Encoding mismatch!
The character encoding specified in the HTTP header (iso-8859-1) is different from the value in the <meta> element (utf-8). I will use the value from the HTTP header (iso-8859-1) for this validation.
ask your hoster not to send iso-8859-1 in the header by the server, the pages won't work correctly! You have no real chance to completely use UTF-8 if your host sends other header first
also, try to use only lowercase names for CSS - elements
stupid!!! Did you read the info from the paged-archive-addon?
<THUMBNAILS_WHOLE_PAGED> // Thumbnails in this page
<THUMBNAILS_PAGES_LINKS> // Link to the pages of thumbnail in the selected category
and you use <THUMBNAILS>-Tag, no wonder !!!!

First of all that's not a kidney that's a sleep mask. There is a THEME - READ!
Lowercase names...will fix
I'll see what my host can do about the UTF thingy
I'm using the same tags that were being used in the simple-dark browse template which worked fine. The pixelpost tag descritptions would help if they were in plain english. I still don't understand what they mean....maybe you're right, I am stupid.
I thought this was supposed to be a friendly community?

read smilies as well as the text and you will see how friendly we are here ;=)
If I go and check your page and document the problems and give explanations, I think this is really friendly
my friend, I gave you at least 15 minutes of my life time ;=)
I must say, I never had anybody helping me so much in a forum where I came as a newby...
The pixelpost tag descritptions would help if they were in plain english.
the descriptions are in urdu or in hindi? (again a smiley ;=) )
what is unplain english, please?

Guess my sense of humour isn't always clear? :evil:
what I mean by plain english is that the explanation of those tags aren't clear to me. Pretty much only those ones. The rest I understand.
Like I said "I'm using the same tags that were being used in the simple-dark browse template which worked fine." I used to have it set to only display 5 thumbs in a row but that doesn't work anymore?
and now I'm also trying to set the paged archive to display only 50/page which doesn't seem to do much. I've switched the THUMBS tag to THUMBS_WHOLE_PAGED which doesn't seem to do much either. Is there something I have to modify in the paged_archive.php file?

there is a typical misunderstanding happening:
the number of thumbnails, which you define in the admin-area, defines how many images will be shown in your image-template in the tag <IMAGE_THUMBNAIL_ROW>
the number of images on the whole page, which you want to see in the browse-template, when you use the paged-archive-addon, is set in admin/addons
if you want to define how many thumbs in one row sit in the browse-template, you do this by either using a CSS-div with a defined width or table-td-cell with a defined with, that is not controlled by PP
so it is quite obvious, that the same tags in different templates behave different, because the width of that element is different (my teacher told me never to repeat one word more than 10 times in a phrase!)
is this a clue to your problem?
Do you use PP 1.5 Final? It seems that not and that is why you have problems.

Connie, yeah, I'm now using an elastic layout...but I thought my template was sort of elastic by using the image width to specify it's size? I guess I was looking at my new code for so long that I forgot how the original worked.
I thought for sure that when I've specified the 5 in the admin it actually made my browse template only use 5 thumbs?
And yeah...I got rid of that dang 'kidney on a string'. I was worried people would think that ;)
GeoS: I am using PP 1.5 Final. Just upgraded last week.
Also: I never thought I'd succumb to using emoticons

this is real life with limitations: you only see what people write
you learn to know them by their postings
so as a new member in a forum you do not know the dialect of that forum
and those oldies in the forum don't know your dialect
misunderstandings arouse, especially when some members (me) seem to have a special kind of humour and spontaneity..
but that is the risk of life, at least here it is more safe and gemütlich than on the street with all bycicle anarchists and horsepowered youngsters ;=)
To get paged archive you must put <THUMBS_WHOLE_PAGED> into the browse_template.html and link it with http://www.firstgatedreamer.com/index.php?x=browse&pagenum=1. Thats all :)

Great! That should do it! Thanks both.
