Hello Argos

Can't delete modules because of an db-query-error inside "modules/uninstall.php" - line 64  :-(
Code: [Select]
$database->query("DELETE FROM ".TABLE_PREFIX."modules WHERE directory = '$file'");
There is no table "modules" ...

Regards
Aldus

This is funny,
In the original /admin/modules/uninstall.php this line also exists.
Even checked the WB2.6.7.. It is in there too!!

Ruud

PS. You have removed this line in SVN #888, so next version it will be out of there...

Thanks Ruud, I was already wondering how that had slipped in the files, as it was not something I had knowingly done myself. As a non-coder I even barely understand what the line means  :|

No worry - i just replaced the files from a working projekt.
The reason for seeing this is a modificated db-connector that
throws the error messages instead of keeping it in silence ...

Thanks for being a backend fan :-)
I noticed that the Admintools>Webedit module messes up things a bit, probably due to some hardcoded styles or something. Have to check that out...

Ich habe folgendes Modul eingebaut.
https://forum.WebsiteBaker.org/index.php/topic,9471.0.html
oder in deutsch
https://forum.WebsiteBaker.org/index.php/topic,9463.0.html
Dabei tritt folgender Fehler auf.

meine Idee dazu könnte obiges nicht gleich mit eingebaut werden?

Eine weitere Idee hätte ich auch noch. Dieses kleine Script mit einbinden ginge das?
https://forum.WebsiteBaker.org/index.php/topic,8749.msg52276.html#msg52276

Translate mit google

I have this module installed.
https://forum.WebsiteBaker.org/index.php/topic,9471.0.html
or in German
https://forum.WebsiteBaker.org/index.php/topic,9463.0.html
The following error occurs on.

http://www.screencast.com/users/All_in_One/folders/Jing/media/844ae572-a962-4d6d-96e0-6a687dca1561

my idea above could not be built with?

Another idea I would even. This small script with the mount would go?

My admin is built for a default installation. Non-default modules may cause visual hick-ups, mostly because they have their own layout settings. I cannot/will not edit other modules to match the admin template. The same goes for incorporating modules into the template. I have added a few things I thought were handy for most users, but that's it I'm afraid. Also: I want to keep work on thsi template as minimal as possible, because I will focus on the new wb2.8 skinnable backend when I find the time. This Wb2.7 template will stay as it is, apart from minor corrections if needed.

Hallo an alle,

ich muß in Deutsch schreiben, weil's im Englischen eher schlecht geht:
Ich finde dieses Template einfach gut, habe noch ein wenig am Äußeren geändert (CI-mäßig) und würde dabei bleiben wollen.
Falls noch jemand dran arbeitet und Ideen zur Erweiterung braucht:
Ich fände es sehr praktisch, wenn in der Seitenübersicht noch eine Spalte mit dem letzten Änderungsdatum wäre und vielleicht eine Anzeige, ob überhaupt schon Inhalt eingestellt wurde. (Ich baue grade meine erste WB-Seite, habe Seiten erstmal angelegt, aber fülle sie nicht unbedingt gleich. Das Immer-wieder-Reinsehen oder den Zettel könnte man sich mit einer solchen Änderung sparen...) Ich bin allerdings nicht fit genug in php, mysql usw., um selbst Hand anlegen zu können.
Vielleicht gibt es ja sowas auch schon, und ich habe es nur nicht gefunden.

Gruß Friedemann

hi,

i will try to translate for argos/others....

friedemann want's a solution for more admin informations... such the display of the last edit-date in the siteoverview....and a control if there is content on that site...(in his case he set up pages and fill them later...)

@friedemann:   there is a snippet for getting that information you get it there
                        http://www.websitebakers.com/pages/code-snippets/listings/last-mod-pages-adv..php
                        open the zip-file and the containing php-file and put the code in a code or code² page (typ) and then you've got a   
                        control of the modifyed pages! for the first

if someone have this in need who are able to make it real - it will be done - if not take this solution with this script and.....

.....have fun

regards martin

Sorry, I don't think both suggestions will be of much use for the average administrator, so I won't try to add this as a feature to the admin template. If someone else wants to add it, and share the result I am willing to add it to the download file. But it should be completely within the admin folder, and should not need any modifications to files outside the admin folder.

I like it very much, this admin template. Looks very professional and for me the overview over the whole page has also improved!

Congratulations and thank you for your work!

Hello Argos,

will your backend design be part of WebsiteBaker 2.8? Seems it is not yet integrated into the latest version on the SVN project side.

Really would love to see your backend design as pre-installed layout for WB 2.8. It is by far the best backend design for WB I have seen so far and also my clients prefer this one about all other designs  :-)

Cheers Clara

Thanks Clara, I appreciate that! I'm not really part of the development team or something, so I don't know. When I will find the time I will create a skinnable version for 2.8, but I'm not sure if that will make it into the first version of WB2.8.

The same here.

Really interested in this skinable stuff and I will provide at least one Admin Backend Skin - but I do not have the time now and furthermore: I don't know what is going on in the Dev Team right now.

Well, I have some good news. Not about the skinnable version, but I do have a major update for my admin template in the making. One of these days I will publish the new version with a revamped Media section. New features:
- a new, more compact layout, that I think is more user friendly.
- the browser function is enhanced with mini thumbnails, file info, and mouse-overs with 200px width previews.
- option to automatically resize (resample) uploads. You can set the proportions in the backend. Ideal for clients without grpahics skills!

It's a cooperation with Ruud. The coding has been done by him (thanks Ruud!), and I did some minor tweaks and the new layout. Still some testing to do, and maybe some tweaks, but release will be within a week I think.

See the image attached, of the test instalation. It's Dutch, but of course the release will be default English.

One thing I really would wish (if I dared..)

A simple php-file in any subdirectory  media directory, with a content like:
$maxwidth=50;
$maxheight = 200;
...

This file could - if exist - be included and override the other settings.
So it would be possible to resize per directory.

This Feautre seems to be a great advantage.
You're great guys.

I am very curious and I hope this feature will be a part of the upcoming WB Version.

I'm not sure what you mean... Could you give an example of what you want to achieve?

Argos admin interface should be one of 3 basic themes from WB 2.8. Still waiting for a first version from Argos. As soon as i got it, it will be integrated in WB 2.8.

That's OK.
But I meant the feautre itself (the media handling).

Jo, sorry for my poor english...

An example:
I have a folder /media/pics280x240/
In this folder is a file "settings.php" with content:
$maxwidth=280;
$maxheight = 240;

So if I upload a picture into this folder, it is  resized to max 280px width (or 240 height), no matter what other setting say.
If this file doesnt exist, the common settings are used.

I have taken the month of June off from commercial projects to do all kinds of things that have been postponed. The skinnable version of my admin template is one of the things to do!

Hm... I'm not sure if this can be built in. Have to talk to Ruud about it :-)
The deafult settings is no filechange at all, and you can set image sizes when uploading, so I'm also not sure what will be gained with your idea. But maybe I'm too stupid to understand you well LOL

$maxwidth=280;
$maxheight = 240;

I can understand why you would want this.

It might be difficult for the "typical" webdesigner/user to get a valid settings.php in a media folder.
Upload will not allow php to be uploaded. Also the file should be a valid php file, or any upload will crash.

Now, the page will store the last used resize settings in a cookie. I could give it a try to make that work for each folder with separate cookies. That way the browser should remember what settings are used for each folder.

Would that help?
