Also where can I find the Joomla! Editorial Style Guidelines, and the guidelines for the Template Tutorials Project?

dsadik -

Thanks for participating in the Joomla! GHOP program. Sorry we didn't respond to your thread earlier! We completely missed this!  :-[

Hopefully, you saw the previous thread where another contestant started with this task, and then decided otherwise. The information that is helpful from that thread I copied below.

Make screenshots of a few of the more commonly uses classes for modules and articles as examples and use a tabular format to show list of classes, which core template files  use them and a short description of what they do.




Class
Description 
Associated Core File(s)


blog
Used for layout of Blog articles

components\com_content\views\category\tmpl\blog.php
components\com_content\views\frontpage\tmpl\default.php
components\com_content\views\section\tmpl\blog.php




Yoiu can a list of classes I complied a wiloe back at:

http://rc.hrpr.com/trunk/joomla-15-temp ... -file     

I think the list is at least 90% accurate.  ;)                                                                   
Another good resource is Waseem's blank template.

Please ask questions and we wlll try to help. We would appreciate it if you post at least every few days so that we know how you are doing and can help, if needed.

Thanks again and good luck!

Amy :)

Thanks Amy,
I have a couple more questions, Since the list is already there, I basically have to copy that list out in a new document and add a description and screenshot for each one?
How should I go about finding out how each class is used to write a description and take a scrreenshot?
Also what will I use Wassem's blank template for?

I would certainly cross-reference the blank template to ensure all classes and ids have been used.

But, yes, it should be pretty straightforward.

Showing pictures with pullouts for CSS classes and IDs will be very helpful.

HTH,
Amy :)

Sorry about that!

Use Firefox and http://chrispederick.com/work/web-developer/

Then, you can view what the classes and IDs are - the browser will tell you.

Check it out and see if it makes sense.

And, you are *not* wasting our time - we are here to help you be successful - if I don't answer the question, asking again is good! Thanks!
