Re: Official Drupal Users Thread

Hey Jeff,

I have a question on the IMCE module. I noticed that it said in the instructions that you need the IMCE Wysiwyg API bridge. I installed the bridge and enabled the module. The discription for the bridge module is as follows:
Makes IMCE available as plugin for client-side editors integrated via Wysiwyg API.
Depends on: IMCE (enabled), Wysiwyg (missing)
Do I need the wysiwyg module as well? When I had the module enabled my FCKeditor was not working.

Thanks.
UPDATE: I have the wysiwg working and the bridge is functioning properly. However, I've notice that under the wysiwyg configuration that it is not recognizing my FCKeditor as being installed. Here is what it says for the FCKeditor:
There are no editor libraries installed currently. The following list contains a list of currently supported editors:
FCKeditor (Download) Not installed.
Extract the archive and copy its contents into a new folder in the following location:
sites/all/libraries/fckeditor

So the actual library can be found at:
sites/all/libraries/fckeditor/fckeditor.js

I'm not sure what this means since the editor is installed and enabled.

Ignore my last-I figured it out! (Duh)

Thumbs up Re: Official Drupal Users Thread

I've completed installing all the modules! I do have to say that this process in itself was a learning experience.

It's time to start building the site!

I think I'm going to hold off before converting my blog. It's an active site with a lot of backlinks. I don't want to mess things up with it when I switch it over. I'll wait until I'm a bit more experienced with Drupal.

Does anyone out there have any experience with theme editing or development using Dreamweaver? Is there a wysiwyg type of builder or editor for themes?

Thanks again to everyone who has helped me get this far. I really appreciate your time and effort.

Marcus

Very interested in the answer to that one.


The Acquia themes are great, very sophisticated, but I want to tweak colours etc and an editor that works well with drupal to generate the local.css to customise them would be handy.

Re: Official Drupal Users Thread

What I did was find a free theme on drupal's site (there are tons available) that had the bones, layout, etc that I liked, and then I tweaked the CSS file and images to make it look exactly how I wanted. (or at least as close to it as I could get...) Pretty happy with how it turned out so far. The nice thing is, the drupal site is so easy to add new features/functions to that I can really add things on the fly... tweak something here and there, no big deal.

Oh, edited the css in dreamweaver. The theme I used came with like a user.css where you can put your customizations. That way if you update the theme you don't have to redo all your customizations as they are in their own file that takes priority over the default theme css... if that makes sense.

I've installed the Aquia slate theme because of the Ubercart capability. It looks like you have Aquia as well. I don't see a user.css. Can you upload the whole theme structure into dreamweaver? I would love to put in some flash or rotating banner into the theme and create my own footer.

I love the Crossfit Asia site http://www.crossfitasia.com/ (WFS) I would like to be able to create something similar on my site. I know I'm still a noob but I like to shoot for the moon!

Re: Official Drupal Users Thread

sorry it was called local.css, all i did was use dreamweaver to edit the file via ftp directly on my server, save changes, refresh page to see the changes, continue tweaking in that fashion.

Probably old school and whatnot, but I'm not a professional, and it works for me. I would just copy the code block out of the other css files for the theme for the thing I wanted to change, paste it in the local.css, make my change and save it.

Re: Official Drupal Users Thread

Most of the style changes should be in the style.css sheet. No you can intergrate ubercart with other themes as well, we use the marinelli themes on ours cause it already had the built in banner rotator.

Re: Official Drupal Users Thread

I added a banner rotator deal to mine using a rotate.php thing or something... can't remember exactly what it was, and I only have 1 image in it at the moment so it doesn't exactly rotate, but it will start to as I add more.

Re: Official Drupal Users Thread

You could actually take the rotator from my theme and incorporate it fairly easily.
