Mind Break is a fixed width, 3 column layout theme I ported with permission from its author at http://www.theme-time.com. I found it interesting because it places both left and right blocks to the right of the main story column. It is meant for 1024x768 and higher screen resolutions. Please see the enclosed README file for more info. See it in action on my test site, lab.familycorner.us

You can download it at gllabs.org or geeklog.net.

nobese,

First, thank you for downloading the Mind Break theme. It's great to see the port in action!

I was able to duplicate your problems on my test site with the Firefox 2 browser. The problems do not exist when using IE7. It is normally my policy not to provide support for 3rd party plugins that don't use the standard GL style.css for layout :rtfm:, ...but since I have a soft spot in my heart for Mark and all his hard work on Media Gallery, I started sifting thru the mediagallery.css stylesheet located at {public_html}/mediagallery/mediagallery.css and made the following change around line 53:

PHP Formatted Code
/* Do not change the MI classes, they are used to help
 * control the frames on images
 */


.mgPluginMI {
  padding:0 !important;
}


I added the clear property:

PHP Formatted Code
/* Do not change the MI classes, they are used to help
 * control the frames on images
 */


.mgPluginMI {
  padding:0 !important;
  clear:both;
}


That fixed it for me in Firefox, and IE7 still renders fine.

Hope this helps! Big Grin

2. The No of Hits are not shown along with the Story. its only seen when in edit mode.

3. The site slogan default colour is too light to be seen over the background properly. Need help to change the colour.

Hi Sunny,

Thx for using the Mind Break theme! If you wouldn't mind posting a link to your site, I would love to see it in action.

In response to:

1. The Preferences tab under the User Functions cannot be saved
There is no Preferences tab that I can find. I've checked the functionality of Username & Password, About You, Layout & Language, Content, and Privacy. All work fine for me. I doubt the issue you are having is theme related. But if you can give me more info on where exactly you are getting the error, we might be able to uncover a little more. Big Grin

2. The No of Hits are not shown along with the Story. its only seen when in edit mode.
The number of hits was removed as a design choice to more closely resemble the original Mind Break theme. Feel free to add it back in by adding the following code to featuredstorytext.thtml and storytext.thtml:
PHP Formatted Code
{lang_views} {story_hits}

so, for example featuredstorytext.thtml would look like this:
PHP Formatted Code

<!--all divs in this file are self-contained-->
<div class="post">
    <span class="story-icons">
        &nbsp;{email_icon}&nbsp;{print_icon}&nbsp;{pdf_icon}
    </span>
    <h2>{start_storylink_anchortag}{story_title}{end_storylink_anchortag}</h2>
    <div class="post-info">
        {story_date}<br />        {lang_contributed_by} {start_contributedby_anchortag}{contributedby_author}{end_contributedby_anchortag}<br />        {lang_views} {story_hits}
    </div>
    <div class="entry">
        {story_anchortag_and_image}{story_introtext}
    </div>
    <div style="clear:both;"></div>
    <div class="postmetadata">
        {edit_link}&nbsp;{page_selector}&nbsp;{readmore_link}<br />        <img src="{layout_url}/images/comments.gif" style="vertical-align:middle;">&nbsp;{post_comment_link}&nbsp;{start_comments_anchortag}{comments_with_count}{end_comments_anchortag} {start_trackbacks_anchortag}{trackbacks_with_count}{end_trackbacks_anchortag}
    </div>
</div>
 


3. The site slogan default colour is too light to be seen over the background properly. Need help to change the colour.
In the theme's style.css file, find:
PHP Formatted Code
.Header .Desc {
color:#f6e3bb;
font-size: 12px;
line-height: 14px;
font-weight: normal;
letter-spacing: 0px;
font-family:Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
padding: 0px;
margin: 2px 0px 0px 30px;

and change the color according to your needs.

Hope this helps!

d404,

The Refresh theme port I've been working on is on its way. Big Grin I've had family in town the last few days which hasn't left me much of time to work on themes, but hopefully by this weekend it should be ready.

The Refresh theme was done for a step-by-step tutorial on How to Port a Theme, Mark (of Media Gallery plugin fame) and I have been working on over at http://gllabs.org. Take a look at it there, as the one that you referenced in

and this is exampel
http://www.styleshout.com/templates/preview/Envision1-0/index.html?PHPSESSID=5187327f5d3a8f6ec2cad7d6aaf14e62

is slightly different. It's called Envision, instead of Refresh. Let me know which one you are wanting exactly. I don't know if I have the resources to start taking theme requests just yet, but would be happy to help you out since the two themes are almost identical.

Thanks for your interest in my work! Mark and I are also working on a visual theme switcher plugin (so instead of just a text only drop-down theme chooser list in a block, it will be similar to a static page with screenshots of each of the themes available.) Feel free to add your input for that project in this forum thread.

Finally, please feel free to check out my other theme ports at http://lab.familycorner.us Mr. Green

I'm not entirely sure what you are asking for, but you can move the blocks around and re-order them via the Geeklog blocks admin panel.

As far as moving the entire left block column to the left of the story column, I'm afraid it would require some major tweaking. The left block column is created with a repeating background picture, so you would need to modify that image file (basically flip it 180 degrees), and them move the {left_blocks} variable and its <div> code back into header.thtml before the story content area.

Hope this helps!

Thx!

Look for {left_blocks} and {right_blocks} variables in (public_html)/layout/mind-break/footer.thtml, you will want to move either of those to (public_html)/layout/mind-break/header.thtml.

The image file you will want to flip is (public_html)/layout/mind-break/images/nav-ol-blue.gif.

The main backround image is (public_html)/layout/mind-break/images/BGC.gif

Hi there

Thx for the reply above. I saw it pretty late it seems. However i solved the issues myself.

1. The missing save button while editing the user preferences.
2. The Hits counter

i Simply copied the required files from the professional theme folder. And replaced it in the Mind-Break folder.

1. However i need help with how to add Meta Data in geeklog
2. I want to rename the Calendar tab to "Shop" and redirect it to the shopping section (i.e. another site)

3. i want to add an extra tab next to Calendar redirecting to some other site.

My site is geeks.onlygizmos.com

am reachable on admin@onlygizmos.com

i have done some other editing like enabling the Rich text editor under Story Editor.
But i want to enable some more fonts, enable coloured fonts, enable script in between story (to add adsense code). Enable embedded videos from youtube etc...

However even as it is i am pretty happy with Geeklog as its a great site. Thx fro the great support.

Sunny

I am also hoping to add a About Me page to the site. Is there any way i can make it with the same design as the theme.

Also there is an issue with the search tab.

The same appears and works fine when on the homepage. However the same gets dislocated at certain times ...

All times are EDT. The time is now 11:38 am.
