Creating A Theme

edited February 2009 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Hi all, I just finished my first round of a new fixed width style and an added footer, but it requires me to add a wrapper div and a footer div to the html. Can someone tell me please where to find the structure to add this to? I am not a phpler (unfortunately) but I can't imagine adding this would be so hard? Thanks for all your help! This forum rocks! Dada

    The footer div is in the foot.php file and the wrapper div would be added to the head.php file because that is where the body tag is.

    Thanks Jimw, only that I don't understand php at all. Don't know what starts when. I assume I would have to do the folling in the head.php $BodyId = ""; if ($this->BodyId != "") $BodyId = ' id="'.$this->BodyId.'"'; echo $HeadString . '</head> <div id="wrapper"> <body'.$BodyId.' '.$this->Context->BodyAttributes.'>'; </div> ?> Is this correct??? I want the warpper to be added right after the body id tag and closed right before the </body> tag. Thanks! Dada

    No, I think you should move the wrapper div after the body line.

    Could you be more specific. What is the body line exactly? In my test html the code looks as follows: <code> <body id="DiscussionsPage" > <div id="wrapper"> <div id="Session">Signed in as admin (<a href="/vanillalounge/people.php?PostBackAction=SignOutNow">Sign Out</a>)</div> <div id="Header"> and so on and so on and then closes like this: <div id="footer">here goes the footer</div> </div> </body> </html> </code> So where exactly in the php templates do I need to add the wrapper div and the footer divs? Could you paste the line of code please? Thank you! Dada

    To add a wrapper:

    $BodyId = ""; if ($this->BodyId != "") $BodyId = ' id="'.$this->BodyId.'"'; echo $HeadString . '</head> <body'.$BodyId.' '.$this->Context->BodyAttributes.'> <div id="wrapper">';

    End close the tag at page_end.php
    echo '</div> </body> </html>';

    That should be it :)

    Great Jazzman! That's exactly what I needed to know! Thanks! I just uploaded my final theme folder called "nyc_fixed" into the "themes" directory. It also includes a folder "vanilla" that has the folder "styles" inside of it, with all the css namesd vanilla.css etc as well. No when I go under my admin settings and I select my new theme it gives me the following error message: "Some problems were encountered Failed to open the styles directory. Please ensure that PHP has read access to the /home/name/public_html/vanillalounge/themes/nyc_fixed_theme/styles/ directory" I checked the permissions off the folders and they are all 755. Am I missing something crucial here? Thanks! Dada

    if you create a theme your folder structure should be:

    ../themes/my_theme/ -> Changed template files go here (head.php, page_end.php)
    ../themes/my_theme/styles/default --> default style which contains images and css-files
    ../themes/my_theme/styles/new_style --> if you have different styles for this theme, add multiple folders in your style-dir

    I guess you haven't got a subfolder in your styles directory.
