possible new contribution and thank you.

Recommended Posts

First, I want to thank you guys for keeping me on the hard road :-P I asked for easy ways out several times and they were never given to me ;)

 

So I made this myself:

 

www.rfstorm.com/catalog/

 

I used the kingcoffee contrib as a base for almost all of my coding, then I modified it to have a bottom graphic, and had a huge pain figuring out how the file structure was, but I'm far better off now :)

 

Anyway, would anyone download this contribution if I compiled it all nice?

 

I can't remember half the files I modified to get it to work, but I'll figure something out if there's enough demand for it.

 

Thanks again everyone,

It looks beautifull, may be a little overdone to me. But the idea is clear and certainly seems usefull to me.

 

You might have to do it again some day, you never know. If you make a contribution out of it, it will be a peace of cake for you to reproduce it at any time. And probably others will benefit from it also. :)

This is exactly what I am looking for!! :D It would really improve the design of my site. I am so excited that you are offering to make a contribution for it. I am certain that there are a lot of other people who would be interested in it also.

 

Good work!

I really like your boxes. I can't think of a way to implement it to my site right now, but if I do, I would like to be able to implement it. This is something that you should write up as a contrib and post to the contributions section for everyone to use. If you don't plan on writing it up as a contrib, them email it to me, I would love to have it.

Looks good, I like it!

 

now to go back and find out what exactly I edited

 

There is a good program you can use called Beyond Compare.

 

It will let you compare two files and show you the differences in them.

 

Just take the unedited file and the file you edited and see the differences in them.

Very nice boxes. I would use this contribution, as soon as I find someone that can make graphics that would fit my site (my graphics guy and I had a "falling out"...)

Well, I'm really sorry to burst everyone's bubble, but I can't compile it for probably at least 2 more weeks :(

 

I recently sold my computer (it was an E-Machine, I just couldn't take it) so now I don't have one, except at work.

 

I'm building one right now, but I don't have sufficient funds to complete it.

 

I already have the box, the video card, and the CDRW drive, which leaves a lot to be had... I'm planning on buying the motherboard and CPU today, and in two weeks, when I get my next paycheck, I may be able to buy the rest.

 

So until I get my next paycheck, I wont even be able to work on it :-/

 

Sorry again everyone.

There is a good program you can use called Beyond Compare.

The problem with that is that I've already added quite a few other contribs to my files (like infobox admin and such) and I've also done quite a bit of misc editing, figuring out what does what, so many of my files will be different... I know where the main changes are, however, so I'l just re-add them to a new MS2 download, and distribute it that way.

 

That sound alright to everyone?

 

I could also add the code into the readme, of course, for those of you that already have contribs loaded into the files that need to be edited.

azer: yes, this contrib allows you to add a bottom box, and also specify a background image, and change the size of the box/header/footer images for your infoboxes.

 

 

UPDATE: I finally purchased the rest of my computer parts, they should all arrive within a week of today (10/10/03) - then my following paycheck (20th) I should get internet, so I'll start working on it then :)

 

Thanks for your patience everyone!

Sorry again everyone, I know lots of people want this contrib, but RL issues are keeping me at bay.

 

either the monitor or the video card I got is broken, so I've got to figure that out, then we'll see..

 

thanks for waiting!

Simple guys. Just replace the following code for every file in your /catalog/includes/boxes folder.

 

Replace:

<tr>
<td>

 

With:

<tr>
<td>
<TABLE WIDTH=173 BORDER=0 CELLPADDING=0 CELLSPACING=0>
<TR>
 <TD COLSPAN=3><IMG SRC="images/boxes/header2.gif" WIDTH=173 HEIGHT=42></TD>
</tr><tr>
<td width="4" style="background-image: url(http://localhost/egypt/images/boxes/left.gif)"> </td>
<td>

 

And replace:

</td>
</tr>

 

With:

</TD>
<td style="background-image: url(http://localhost/egypt/images/boxes/right.gif)"> </td>
</TR></table><TABLE WIDTH=173 BORDER=0 CELLPADDING=0 CELLSPACING=0>
<tr>
<!--              <td width="173" height="4" style="background-image: url(http://localhost/egypt/images/boxes/bottom.gif)"> </td>-->
<td align="left"><div align="left"><img src="images/boxes/bottom.gif"></div></td>
 </tr></table>
</td>
</tr>

 

 

Of course you will have to change the names of the images...but that's it.

 

 

HTH,

-Chris

Was this contribution ever made?

 

Also, is there a way to add a *different* background image to the left infoboxes and the right ones?

 

Please point me to where I may download this/these contributions.

 

Thanks in advance! :)
