Pool for students

Just finished the Website for students of Design in Augsburg.

I only still have to argue with the lack of CSS-compability of IE.
Please use any other browser! ;-)

I know the problems with IE 5 on Mac. But I decided not to support it because the site is not commercial and it is meant for students of design and multimedia.
So I can assume that they are technically up to date.

While making this site I have found some bugs in CMSMS. Do I really have to create a Mantis account to report it?

Do you have to, no?  You can post them here.  Though, sometimes stuff posted here gets lost, since we have so many posts.  I guess if they're all together, I can put them on my IRC TODO list, which I keep up to date.

ok,

- the news module doesn't know the pagename i gave CMSMS while the installationprogress. For example index.php?seite=news does not work because the news modulew only knows index.php?PAGE=news

- when i delet a page in my cms-backend the alias is blocked forever. I guess the page still exists somewhere. I cannot creat a new page with the same title. The Backend tells me that the tittle already exists. And in the Content Management theres page no. 1.6 after page no. 1. The pages in between are dead pages.

- the news module has the same "dead-pages" problem

- The PHPLayers module creates the same CSS code three times (But that doesn't really cause any harm)

Thank you for your great work. Your cms is just wonderful and the ideal solution for me.

I love the transparent background on the menu. How did you do that?

Just a transparent png-File inserted per CSS.
To do that you need to change the css files of the PHPlayer module
which is located at modules/PHPLayers/phplayers/layersmenu-cms.css

The code looks something like that:

Code: Select all

.subframe   {
  background: repeat url(uploads/images/submenu_back.gif);
}
html>body .subframe   {
  background: repeat url(uploads/images/submenu_back.png);
}


The first definition is for IE. IE is not yet able to show transparent PNGs

Cool, I will have to check that out.

I didn't know you could make a translucent png... only transparent. Do you know if you can make that with Fireworks? Whenever I touch the transparent pngs (right and down triangles) the image immediately breaks (no longer transparent). What do you use for your graphic editor?

@jptechnical: I'm sure that Fireworks can make that.
For translucence you need a 24-bit PNG (8 bit per channel R,G and B and 8 bit for alpha).

I use Photoshop so I can't tell you how to do that in Fireworks but I think it can't be to difficult.
It's only important to use 24 bit PNGs, not 8 bit PNGs.

Another possibility would be moz-transparency or applying an alpha-filter, which will work in IE as well (but only v6). Simply change this in CSS:

Code: Select all

.subframe {
  -moz-opacity: 0.65;
  filter: alpha(opacity=65);
}


Yet another solution might be using the fallback GIF with an enhanced feature: create a 4x4 GIF that looks like this

t b
b t

where t is transparent and b is black or any other color. Should create the illusion of 50% opacity ...
