in your main template index.php from Beez2 is a row
<div id="fontsize"></div>
replace this row like this
<!-- <div id="fontsize"></div> -->

hope this helps

Yes, I already tried this but then I get a JavaScript error saying that some expected value is null (I don't remember the exact error message).

I am wonder (newbie) where I can find this Index.php file to make these changes to. I found a few index.php files but I am not sure what to change. Am I supposed to do this in the back-end, or directly in explore?

For your template the index file is in the root of the specific template folder. You can access it via the template manager.

I am still blind looking at the template manager and cannot find the index file. If I double click on the template it takes me to the Edit Style page and I do not see any option to edit the index file.
What am I missing?

Just FTP into your site and go to the folder:

Joomla Root\Templates\beez_20

There you wil find a index.php

Then do what Icho says (its on line 139)

icho wrote:just add style to hidden that div

<div id="fontsize" style="display:none"></div>


And TA-DA the fontsize choose thingy is gone :)

Good Luck;)

Thanks for the tip.

I'm trying to remove also all the white space from top til logoheader div, but I've not found in CSS the padding, or margin, or whatsoever that I should change.

Ideas anyone?

Thanks a million in advance,

To get rid of the blank space, edit "layout.css" in the "header content" section, add this:

#header {margin-top: -100px;}

Hope it helps

Hello,
I'd also like to get rid of the "font size" thing from the template.

The fixes described here essentially suggest "hiding" it, then adding additional CSS to cover up the missing space.

But how do we really get rid of this function?

Thanks,
Matthew

Cut this out <div id="fontsize" style="display:none"></div>

but make sure you are working on a copy.

mcsmom,
Thanks. Yes, I know how to do that. But I was hoping to turn off the function altogether.
Thanks,

Re: Remove Font Size Settings in Beez2 Template

Hi,
I've been quite happily editing the index.php for Beez20 template on my local installation (XAMPP), but now I've got the site 'live' on a hosting server I can't figure out how to access this page in an editor via the Control Panel to alter the Font Size display.

I managed it OK using Cute FTP's editing suite, logging in to the server, but that obviously isn't the right way to do it.
Can someone advise, please?

Thanks,

Ian

Sorted it. Template manager, 'edit file'.

Is it possible to change the default editor (Tiny MCE at the mo') to a different editor which provides a search facility to track down specific code?

If you are using the Beez2 Personal Template, you can make the following changes to modify the template. Remember, you are changing core files, so you will have to make the changes again when Joomla Updates are installed, unless someone knows a way around this. (I'd like to know if there is a way around it, being a default template)

Remove White Space at Header
personal.css (Line 33)

Code: Select all

#header
{
   padding-top:1.0em
}

Disable Font Switching
index.php (Line 128)

Code: Select all

<!-- Disable Font Switching -->
                                     <!--<ul class="skiplinks">
                                                <li><a href="#main" class="u2"><?php echo JText::_('TPL_BEEZ2_SKIP_TO_CONTENT'); ?></a></li>
                                                <li><a href="#nav" class="u2"><?php echo JText::_('TPL_BEEZ2_JUMP_TO_NAV'); ?></a></li>
                                            <?php if($showRightColumn ):?>
                                            <li><a href="#additional" class="u2"><?php echo JText::_('TPL_BEEZ2_JUMP_TO_INFO'); ?></a></li>
                                           <?php endif; ?>
                                        </ul>
                                        <h2 class="unseen"><?php echo JText::_('TPL_BEEZ2_NAV_VIEW_SEARCH'); ?></h2>
                                        <h3 class="unseen"><?php echo JText::_('TPL_BEEZ2_NAVIGATION'); ?></h3>
                                        <jdoc:include type="modules" name="position-1" />
                                        <div id="line">
                                        <div id="fontsize"></div>
                                        <h3 class="unseen"><?php echo JText::_('TPL_BEEZ2_SEARCH'); ?></h3>
                                        <jdoc:include type="modules" name="position-0" />
                                        </div> <!-- end line -->
<!-- Disable Font Switching -->

Remove "Right Column" toggle
index.php (Line 183)

Code: Select all

<!-- Remove Right Toggle -->
                              <!-- <h2 class="unseen">
                                                <?php echo JText::_('TPL_BEEZ2_ADDITIONAL_INFORMATION'); ?>
                                        </h2>
                                        <div id="close">
                                                <a href="#" onclick="auf('right')">
                                                        <span id="bild">
                                                                <?php echo JText::_('TPL_BEEZ2_TEXTRIGHTCLOSE'); ?></span></a>
                                        </div> -->
<!-- Remove Right Toggle -->

Change Header Image
edit the following (change attributes to suit)
personal.css (Line 94)

Code: Select all

.logoheader
{
   background:  #ffffff  URL(../images/personal/yourheaderimage.jpg) no-repeat bottom right ;
   color:#fff;
   min-height:200px;
   margin:0px 15px 0px 15px !important;
}

Hello,
there is a way to use a copy of Beez2 as template by default.
1) With FileZilla create a new empty folder into your templates folder let's say beez2_modified.
2) With FileZilla copy the files from the Beez2 default template to your desktop.
3) Open the file templateDetails.xml and change the name to beez2_modified
Change <name>beez2</name> at the top of the file to <name>beez2_modified</name>
4) Move all your files to your new folder beez2_modified, you did as said on point 1.
5) Go to the administration of your site.
Go to Extensions => Extension manager.
6) Click the Discover button.
Your template should appear, if it's not the case click the round Discover button on your right.
If it's not working, it was happening with me, change the rights to 777 to your templates and beez2_modified folders.
7) Select your beez2_modified template and click the button Install.
It should be ok and your template should be installed.
8) Select it and make it your default template.
9) Put the rights to 755 to your templates and beez2_modified folders.
Start the changes you've done into your message.

Hope this help, sorry for my poor english, I speak french.

Happy new year to everyone.

Thierry

Hi Jetsurfer,

Everything as you posted, except using Beez5

One detail is I now have Position 7 on the wrong side of the template, it is on the right instead of the left 6,8, & 3 are beside it.

I used ?tp=1 to check the positions.

Do you have any ideas where I made a mistake?

Regards,

Andy

:eek: Beware :eek: , the following does not work properly, do not try it. On the surface it will get rid of the font size so you don't see it but it breaks the contact page. To read more about the problem I encountered after doing this see this thread

hope this helps


This on the other hand has worked just fine and so far has not created any problems.

Hi all,

My problem is as follows: I don't want to remove this font size switch, I just want to adjust the color to #d1d1d1 that it won't be this prominent on the screen.

Please, notice that I am still new to Joomla and coding (php, JavaScript, html, etc.). Therefore, be patient. This would be my solution, but doesn't seem to work (tried in various ways):

Code: Select all

<div id="fontsize" style="color:#d1d1d1"></div>


Yesterday, I tried to write a code under the var (line ~100):

Code: Select all

'<?php echo JText::_('TPL_BEEZ2_FONTSIZE', true) ?>'.style.color= (209, 209, 209);


Neither seem to work.

Thanks for advice.

Hello!
For me works better in the add to the end of personal.css:

#fontsize{
display:none;
}


Because when I tried
<!-- <div id="fontsize"></div> -->

I had troubles with the component e-privacy in ribbon mode
