Of course - everytime welcome.

 :-D But anyway - I´ll give You a try, maybe You change Your mind.

It wasn´t too bad before - but now it looks really displaced.

Hello Vyni!
As I wrote you yesterday (PM), I am now back in developement on this one.
Once I'm ready with the changes, I'll send you the zip-file of the backend, all right?

You're on my list.

The screenshot you send me, is one of the things to be changed.
Thanks.

Anyone else who is willing to test the new backend templaete I'm creating with some another community members is welcome to PM me -
But I'll not share the files until the middle of the week. Just exercise some patience please. The next test run will be before the middle of the next week.

 :lol: Some of you guys will really love it.

Best Regards,
Stefek

Backend Icons
« Reply #76 on: July 14, 2008, 11:03:46 PM »
Hello.

This Time I'd like to prepublish my new set of the Big-Icons in the forum.
ANY kind of suggestions, critics and improvement wishes welcome.

I also attached the icons in the zip below.

Some of them I created from scratch - some of them I left as they are or "recycled" parts of them.
Let me know what you think.

Best,
Stefek

EDIT//
this is a dummy run.
I'm still in developement with this and your suggestions etc. could give a new direction into the creation.

Actually the top right icons can be improved much. And after that the backend template should be improved, it's even worse than the old one. I don't have the time myself right now, but maybe I will do it myself sometimes if no one else does.

Hello Argos,
currently I am working together with another German Member (BerndJM) on a new Backend.
Because of lag of time, it's not going fast enough (as I would prefer).
But we have a lot of some good improvements in the new backend-concept.
We allready had a "dummy-run" with this and the reactions of the testers has been promising - 4 of 5 where satisfied so far.

I think in the next week we will make the next "dummy-run".

Thank you.

Is quite a while the results reported here were therefore my question.
What is the status?

Weil Babelfish nicht so gut ist hier der deutsche Text.
Ist ja schon eine Weile das hier Ergebnisse gemeldet wurden daher meine Frage.
Wie ist der Stand?

Stephan

P.S. man kann das auch hochpushen nennen.  :roll:

Remarkable! I was just planning to post the same question: what is the status of the new admin?

Tomorrow I'll PM you.

The Status is:
80% Done.
Some corrections to be done on CSS and some icons still remain to be created.

I'll send out the Status as is and I'm really courious about your reactions.

I think I'll open a new thread soon, so we can dicuss this on an new topic.

Good night,
Stefek

WB logo?
« Reply #85 on: August 05, 2008, 05:14:37 AM »
Hi guys,

As I'm a designer who made use of WB a lot for my web design business and I really did not contribute much in the community, I would love to make an ass-kicking back-end template for WB users.

I have finished mostly everything apart from the logo. Can you supply me the original vector file, or a transparent png? The current logo.png sticks with its gradient background.

Thanks a lot.

OK guys,

Thanks to Stefek who provided me the logo really quickly, I can release this admin GUI faster than I thought.
You simply need to unzip, and then copy all the folders: images, interface, login then paste them into WB_PATH/admin.

You can view the screen-shot here: http://coffeemugvn.com/resources/WB27_adminGUI_screenshot.jpg
And download the package here: http://coffeemugvn.com/resources/WB27_adminGUI.zip

I hope you guys like it and this template can be used as official WB Back-End template.

Sincerely yours,
Hieu.

Hello Hieu!

I would prefere If you could post the whole Admin Directory.

I'm working with Xampp and this make it easyer to switch between the different backends.

Best Regrads,
Stefek

Here's another flavor of admin area for people who may like it. It's modified version of the one i posted before in this thread. Attached are a snapshot and entire zipped admin folder.

Maybe some one can post the logo on the forum, so we can also use it in our own backend templates but also on the site to let people know it was made with WB, a logo with text says more then only text, and when people see the logo they think hey i saw that earlier and that looked good.

I also made a different admin backend. Used some other colours and the fisheye is implemented. Fisheye is something i used in www.marcelissen.nl (the flags) and i did it in the backend also for the 4 icons for "Home" - "View" - "Help" - "Log-out".

Hope you like it!

If you like it i could make it available for you all.

Icons are made by Stefek! Thanks Stefek for let me use them.

Wow, there's a lot going on with the backend design! I am really impressed with the works presented here lately.

Since I don't have the time currently to actively design on this, I'd like to contribute my feedback though. I think of all the recent design contributions have their pros, and if we could combine them it would make a close to perfect interface.

@hrioo: Great colours. Well, you got my soft spot since I love dark red with black and white, but anyway the combo looks smooth and perfectly integrated. I would only change the blue-greenish line into another colour. So, if we could get the backend layout look as generally integrated like this concept it would be brilliant.
Your later contributed version is a bit too much all black/white/grey to me. But that's just individual taste, isn't it? Anyway I would prefer the website baker logo beeing preserved. The logo you suggest doesn't have the visual effect as the baker's hat has.

@Stefek: You're doing a great job on icons. I particulary think that the icons for page modification and preview are an improvemt. The clock icons aren't so easy on the eyes though, I think it's the divided square background which makes them a little less clear.

The big icons just rock! They are "speaking" and I love the little baker in the access and admin tools icons. It's a good idea to have WB's core and only constant marketing tool -- the baker's hat -- repeated.

I agree with Argos, that the top icons (logout etc.)  need improvemt.

@Hieu: Your shot at the backend design produces a very clear interface with light colours. I only think that there are too many different shades of blue in it.

@Bramus: The fisheye is a nice effect, done on the top icons.

So, let me put things together: An integrated, visually smooth colour design like in hiroo's first shots, plus the new big icons and most of the small icons provided by Stefek, and possibly the fishey as an addidion. There we'd go, folks  :-)

Regards,
spida

Hello Spida.
Thank you.

As I wrote in a earlier post I'm also creating a whole Backend Panel which has some additional featueres and which makes working with WB even more comfortable and smooth.

At the moment I don't have the time to accomplish this but if you like to see the results, just PM me.
I'm using my new Admin Panel on every 2.7 Installation and I love it, because the work is going faster, than before und you can explain the production steps via phone much easier and straight forward.

As I wrote, this Admin Panel will be shared once it's really ready.
I don't like to publish  something wich has to be updated again and again.

But if anyone like to see (as many users have done allready), just PM me and I'll send you  download link.

Best Regards,
Stefek

Spida, thank you. The so called logo i put together took me 3 minutes and it wasn't done professionally.

Personally i'm not too keen on WB's logo and to be honest i didn't even notice it was a baker's hat until you said so in your post. I always thought it was some sort of bread basket  :lol:.

Anyway i agree with your points, so i made some adjustments to the first template and implemented WB's logo with a little photo editing. I also modified the horizontal menu a little bit. included in the zip file is the whole admin folder.

Maybe we should start a WB logo thread?

Have Fun

Hi hrioo,
nosy me loaded Your package. But I´m wondering what for this zip is? Too much strange files in "mainfolder" - cant be a replacement for admin-panel!
I didn´t try - but I suppose this is something else.

Correct me if I´m wrong.

regards from Himberg, next to Vienna

Hi,

personally I prefer a sort of blue color scheme like on the official website baker sites (e.g. forum) as those colors are what people associate with WB for a while. The other modifications proposed are cool anyway.
