Admin Template "Birdie" for WB 2.8
« on: August 19, 2009, 07:27:14 PM »
All WB backend templates are blue...

All WB backend templates?!?

NO!

 :-D

I've created a light green backend template. See the screenshots to get a first impression.

AMASP: http://www.websitebakers.com/pages/admin/admin-backend/release-2.8/birdie.php?lang=EN

Things to mention:

* AccessKey-Pad included (but only links to "Home", "View", "Help" and "Logout" for different reasons)
* Tested with FF 3.0, IE 5.5 - 8 - some unresolved issues with IE 5.5 and IE 6 (reported by "dbs", see below), but you really should not use such old software ;)
* Uses CSS-floats and other CSS tricks that may not work on any (old) browser.
* Uses "Fieldsets" and "Labels" on most forms.

History:

* 0.3: New - Customizable colors (edit custom.css to fit your needs)
* 0.4: Some layout corrections
* 0.5: Layout corrections on Login and Forgot Password page
* 0.6: Fixed an issue with IE 6, but there are still problems with old versions of IE (old means < IE7) I am not going to fix

Take it or leave it. ;)

See below for an additional download to change colors to orange. You can use the additional ZIP to learn how to change the colors.

looks nice :)

It would be nice to have one backend theme to be able to change the background color, based on the frontend site colors :)

Hm... You mean use the frontend colors automagically? Don't see how...

But it should be easy enough to change the colors to your needs. :roll:

Well, this is a subject for WB3, I think. Also, backend modules should fit in seamlessly (most don't). We'll see...

Edit: As a matter of fact, I thought about creating some "Skins" (different colors) for this theme. If you have color proposals, please let me know.

Well, I think the easiest way would be to provide an empty custom.css that can be filled by the admin if he wishes to.

So, here's version 0.3. (See download in first posting.)

* Added a custom.css to allow color customization
* Changed appearance of success- and error-messages

To change the colors, edit the custom.css file. I have included the appropriate CSS there. Only the top background image will stay green. :-D

Do you like orange?

To use, download the zip file attached and replace the files in the wb_bird backend template with the ones included. You will need the wb_bird theme to be installed first.

Can you be more concrete, please? I tested with all IE versions from 5.5 up to 8.

Ah. Seems I've overlooked that issue.

The first problem (subnav) can be fixed adding this to theme_ie.css:

Code: [Select]
#subnav li {
         float                    : left;
}


I am not going to fix the other issue.

Manchmal ist es eben sinnvoll beim Tabellenlayout zu bleiben, Das verstehen Sie alle. Hab mir da auch schon die Zähne ausgebissen. Wollte mal ein Backend Them mit YAML umsetzen

Note: Once the code has been generated, it is easy to debug. It's not a bug, it's a feature!

Nä, nicht des IE wegen. Da müßte es schon zwingendere Gründe geben. :-D
