New template: Multiflex-3
« on: June 15, 2007, 01:09:12 PM »
Hi everybody,

My first template for WB. Originally designed by Wolfgang.
It has a three column layout, but can easily be custumised to be used as two-column. It needs show_menu2() installed, and contains three menu's:

One main menu (horizontal dropdown, one sublevel), one horizontal top-menu in the header and one extra menu in the left column.

Some of the styles of the original design had to be left out, because it would break the layout of the pages which are generated (e.g. forms, captcha, news, etc.)

See also Wolfgang's website to see how the template could be customised to your needs.

I am working on a showcase at this moment.

EDIT: Newer version below!!!

Ditto, this is a great template.  My only problem is having to deal with content blocks, but that's just my lazy side typing.  :roll:

Uploaded to the add-on repository ... but maybe you should define the center block width. Just have a look at the preview.

cheers

Indeed it does...I've reviewed it in IE and Firefox. Works well over here at home. It seems that this is only the case in the preview section. To my opinion it should however work in all cases, so I will have a look at it.

Hi,

I guessed that the preview page is a table layout, which I had removed in the CSS to keep flexibility. Some of it I put back, which should solve this problem...hopefully .

Thanks for a quick update. I did the update and unfortunatly the error still shows ... Bens Version is up and does not show these errors. But yours has the blocks set-up, so it would be nice to offer both ...

cheers

@martinstan1,

Sorry for the inconvenience. Left a line in, which was meant for testing. I replaced it with the original and attached it.

regards,
Erik

Both examples are broke in the right boxes. Errors and links flow outside the divs

Hi,

Really nice template.

Just wondering how do you specify which entry (menu, link) goes in which menu.
Ex. I want a 'contact us' link in the header menu. how ?
The sub-menus won't work for me !! They will display one beside another instead of one inside another !! How ?
How do I specify the menu links to be displayed in the sidebar ??

Just to be clear,  i've created some links in WB, some are menus links embeded in other menu links using the parent option in the page creator. I can't find the way to push them on inside another neither to have them displayed in the header.

I'm not so familiar with WB neither showmenu2(), so sorry for this newbie post.

I actually work locally with FF2

if you are using my template then u have to make sure you have show_menu2 installed.  what will happen is all the parent pages will be shown in the top menu and the child pages will be shown in the side menu.

cheers

Ok, I thought I had this template figured out but I am lost...

This template should let me build a site that has a the following hierarchy in its menu structure:

Top Menu -> Main menu -> Extra Menu

If I click on a section in the top menu, it should open the menu in the Main section, and when I click on a menu item in that menu, the extra menu on the left-hand side should then appear, correct?  In any case, this is what I need to do for my current project, if I'm incorrect, please tell me now! LOL

Now, if I create a page and a sub-page under it, then move the "container" page to the top menu, the sub-page doesn't appear anywhere anymore (I tried moving around the sub-section to other menus, but nothing seems to work).

I'm totally confused.   Help!

Hi,

Please consider all three menu's as seperate, not part of a hierarchy.
If you need submenu's of the Main Menu to appear in the left side menu, you need to change the settings in the template. In fact it would make the show_menu2 parameters somewhat easier to understand. At this moment it has some hacks in it for properly displaying the Main menu (drop down) in IE.

Also, for some reason the first menu-item in the main menu cannot have children. Don't know why, but they will not show in the drop down.

hope this helps,

Eki

Hi all!

I can't seem to get the drop downs working in this great template.

I have getmenu 2 installed.

Demo at: http://bordtennis.hotserv.dk/

<?php show_menu2(1, SM2_ROOT, SM2_ALL,SM2_ALL,..............................

Test 2 and Test 3 are submenus to Velkommen

Thanks in advance.

Jens

jensl1972 I see from your link that you have given up and gone over to Joomla.

Its a shame because this is a great piece of kit.

If you think you had problems with WB wait until you start playing with Joomla...

Hi Amilo!

I've been using Joomla for the last 3 years and have all but no problems using it. Even the more "advanced" code bits.
I intend to keep using WB for my medium sized sites as it is by far the best CMS for this range.

If You can point me to a place where I can learn how to use the menus (ie. implement menus, php etc) in WB I would be thankfull, as I really like this CMS.
Best regards
Jens Lorentsen

Hello,

have a look at our help pages:

http://help.WebsiteBaker.org/pages/en/advanced-docu/designer-guide/multiple-menus.php

This shows how to use different (even independent) menues. Next part is to style them in the css file of your template. You find a few bookmarks wich could help you on our help page too.

Thanks!

I'll have another go at the help files. I have however not found them very usefull (clear) in the past. It seems to me that there are a lot of old stuff in there which are no longer relevant. Don't see this as a huge critisism, just an observation.

Just a note:
The link i got from Matthias leads to another help file than the one I refer to above. Hence the critisism is not relevant. Sorry for being too quick on the trigger  :-o

Hello,

the new help pages are online since 16. August. So maybe the link you had pointed you to the old pages. Hope you like the new pages and find what you are looking for.
