Help in Designing a Template

Postby shen brood » Wed Jan 16, 2008 2:01 am

Well our organization is doing IT Extension to other NGOs and they wanted to have some sort of branding for their site and since I am not so adept when it comes to templating I was wondering if someone could design the template or help?  Please.........

Here are the links to sample of the desired template:

Hi,

I'm interested in designing my own Joomla 1.5 templates but I have not found any information regard the CSS code in the template.css file. The top half is all the design and positioning which is fine, but there also seems to be a bottom half for error codes??? etc which nobody seems to talk about?

Do you have to also write this code yourself or do you take it from a generic template? I have not found a tutorial (video) that goes from start to finish completely. They all seem to focus on the top bit of the code and never talk about the bottom bit?

Any idea's or pointers to a COMPLETE video which be great! :-)

Regards

Scorptech

can be thought by taking from a generic template. i wonder what template's css are you refering that spits out a lot of error codes. if it does; steer away from that :)

theres a lot of reading here: http://docs.joomla.org/Template_Development

Hi,

Thanks for the link.

I can crop a photoshop PSD File and set up the css for this. Then convert it into template.css, but if you look at all the main template css files, there seems to be another section that includes a lot of other coding?

Do you really have to do every bit of css coding for the site or are there generic parts which you can use from other templates?

To clarify - The css coding seems to be there to catch problems and most of the templates have it in it.

Thanks

Scorptech

PS. A video tutorial doing css scripting complete would be better than doing the reading if possible. Has anyone done one?

one of those doc tutorials has a screenshot what those classes are in the css. joomla has its own css classes. maybe thats what youre asking where these css classes coming from.

Hi,

That would make sense and sounds like what I'm talking about.

The top half of the coding seems to be the CSS template formatting and the bottom half seems to be other bits of coding. The issue is - I have not come across any video tutorial that talks about the bottom half of the code and what do to do with it? Where to get it? how to work with it? etc

It would be nice to get a brief description of the css coding from the formatting to the "specific css" code for joomla.

Thanks

Scorptech

i cant remember seeing a video tutorial however there docs. will point you to specifics whenever.
yes, i got what you mean now; there are classes that was NOT called from the index.php of the template file but exists on the template.css; these are CORE classes that are tagged by the joomla core itself. which is rendered by default.

Yes, that's sounds about right. It's these CORE classes that I need to know about, what to do with them, configuring if any etc.

None of the tutorials I've seen so far mention these which is very strange as they are obviously vital to the overall design of the site.
