053 - Write a document describing how to put rounded corners on modules using...

Postby Kevin8020 » Wed Jan 09, 2008 11:50 pm

Alright, I'm going to take on task 53.

Quoting the Original GHOP Issue,

Write a document describing how to put rounded corners on modules using the
"rounded" module style.

Description
The document should take the reader through a step-by-step procudure for
creating the corner images using a selected open source image editor (eg.
The Gimp), placing the image files in the correct location in the template
directory and amending the template file to use the "rounded" module style.
The document should be illustrated by suitably annotated screenshots.

The document should comply with current Joomla! Editorial Style Guidelines
and guidelines for the Template Tutorials Project.


First off, what is the "Joomla! Editorial Style Guidelines"?

Google Task

Task claimed: Jan 9 Due: Jan 23

Kevin -

Actually, you have been subject to the Joomla! Editorial Style Guidelines for all documentation tasks.

Write good.  8)

Sorry you waited for that. Did you start looking at rounded corners? This is not a task I defined, but a quick Google ought to give you a rich array of choices to begin.

Thanks!
Amy :)

I wish I had had that back with the Quick Start guide. I know there are a few things on here that I definitely didn't do in there. I may go revisit that next week, if you think it would be necessary - your call. I personally feel like I have a responsibility to clean that up... not sure.

Meanwhile, I've (unfortunately) had some experience with rounded corners... haha! I'm going to work on getting this task taken care of tomorrow and Saturday - rounded corners really aren't as hard as some people think!

Your guide ROCKS! Nothing needs to be changed.

Good - glad you have had (unfortunate) experience with rounded corners and will be on your way!

Can't wait to see!
Amy :)

I'm beginning to worry if I will have the time to complete the last task I brought upon myself.  School dumped a whole lot of stuff on me this last week, and I doubt that I'll have time to even complete my rounded corners document.

Would it be really bad of me to back out of a task?

(PS - Amy, your inbox is full...)

No problem, Kevin.

You have done so much for our community. I'll let you know when we get the Quick Start available, etc.

Good luck with your schooling. We will talk again soon!

Amy :)

PS - unless you want this closed - I'll leave it and see if you have time. Not much time to reopen it, anyway.

Kevin -

I know you are not certain about this one, but wanted to give you a "heads up" that this is the last week.

Thanks for all you have done!
Amy :)
