Blog / News / Announcements / FlatPress 0.703.2

FlatPress 0.703.2

Here’s another. As I said hope of a not-long-series, but I know myself :/

I’ve fixed a quite important URL input problem, so I suggest to apply the update

Full download from SourceForge as usual, and patch from 0.701 ONLY Get the 7kb patch here.

If you want to use this patch you’ll have to apply the old one before.

    Thanks for the update.

    I wrote recently a quite positive - although in German - review about FlatPress which can be seen here:

    It contains as well a link to six additional themes ported from SimplePHPBlog and WordPress which can be easily modified to switch between left and right navigationbar:

    I just wanted to thank you for your effort!

    I tried to get the 0.703.2 patch, it seems that the link is to patch 0.703.1. The complete set was OK.

    @Carlos: thank you, I’ve fixed the link

    @DelefGroth: I’ve already said thanks by mail :)

    The themes you ported are nice; I like the fact you just changed the CSS! I don’t know if you know K2 for WordPress which is completely customizable and allow you to load different set of CSSs; I would like to make FP able to do that; this way you would have just to distribute your CSSs!

    @NoWhereMan: In fact for those 6 Styles I had to copy the entire folder to create a new file although in some cases just one files was added and the file style.css was changed to @import this new file. It would be good if it would be possible to load different styles like we would have style-LetterHead.css, style-Flatmaas.css, style-FlatMaasLeftNav.css where the filename refelects the theme name.

    BTW: Did you observed that I fixed the js-file inseide the res dir as well. Toggling now works as well in the IE as expected.

    I know you just copied the tpl’s; that’s why I told you my idea; I saw that that layout is quite flexible already; actually I didn’t notice that you fixed the JS, because really I got a bit tired of FlatMaas2 (and I thought I had already fixed that bug on IE!);

    I was planning to just drop FlatMaas from the main package and leave it only on the wiki (or as a secondary style, read on); the main theme would become ‘leggero’; anyway your CSSs would still work because, well… leggero itself was based on flatmaas;

    going further with the development FlatMaas2 in 0.703 has become then based on leggero (the chicken and the egg, you know :D)

    I think in August I will also work on this, it shouldn’t be hard (really what’s hard is keeping backward compatibility)

    In my mind you would have many subdirs in the leggero/ (or, say, “my_theme/”, if you had developed another set of TPLs) named after your style-set: those would look like

    [my-style-name/] style dir
    theme.conf.php // or something along the lines,
    // to configure specific options
    [res/] dir containing JSs
    [imgs/] your images

    main theme dir (”leggero/”) would contain these style dirs (maybe under a styles/ dir themselves), your theme TPLs, and the main theme.conf.php which would contain standard options for the theme/style family
