Description

Hi has anyone had a chance to check out my theme for mythweb?

http://efricke.tripod.com/elkintheme1.02.tar.gz

you also need http://efricke.tripod.com/theme_elkin.php.tar.gz in the config directory.

Here a small changelog:

  • some new variables in the config directory
  • all images are not hard coded anymore (as they are in the Default theme)
  • tabs like they are used in amazon
  • colors are mostly pastell and easy on the eye (subjective ;-)
  • tried to add more css

Not working:

  • after opening a new browser the settings allways default back to

"Default"

  • somehow due to the long words in German the screen gets too wide. May be

fixed with the new variables in the config file

  • patches since 0.18.1 have not been added

New Ideas:

  • how about using phpthumb (phpthumb.sourceforge.net) to create resized

icons and do the conversion to gif files? woud fix bandwidth and speed issues with the "recordings" view

  • constantly new ones ;-)

Cheers,

Elkin

I'm afraid neither of those links work for me?

Hi, sorry... these Tripod guys make it ever more difficult to post stuff. Just copy the link into the browser directly or use wget ;-)... I am still working on the theme, so if you / anyone like it, I can make it even better.

Cheers

Those files are gzipped, but they aren't tar files. They decompress just fine, but tar says this:

$ tar xvf elkintheme1.02.tar
tar: This does not look like a tar archive
tar: Skipping to next header
tar: Read 9035 bytes from elkintheme1.02.tar
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

and

$ tar xvf theme_elkin.php.tar
tar: Read 1043 bytes from theme_elkin.php.tar
tar: This does not look like a tar archive
tar: Skipping to next header
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

The files are actually double-gzipped:

~ $ gunzip elkintheme1.02.tar.gz 
~ $ file elkintheme1.02.tar 
elkintheme1.02.tar: gzip compressed data, was "elkintheme1.02.tar", from Unix
~ $ tar tvzf elkintheme1.02.tar    
drwxr-xr-x  0 root   root        0 Jun 29 09:06 elkin/
drwxr-xr-x  0 root   root        0 Jun 21 16:16 elkin/img/

Sorry, I'm completely redesigning the theme engine in mythweb. It won't accept any new themes, though it'll make it a LOT easier to add css-based skins for layout changes, etc.
