Who will be first to get a real site up and running using this?
Please post your URL here (and testing ones if you'd like/let us have a look at them.
Are you hosting this yourself at school Gatt?
Or are you you using hosting?
using a company called "Ace Webhosting"
Trying to move off them though as not struck on them - had problems with the MySQL side of the install, but installed 1st time on my own site (hosted by Easily.co.uk)
Ace Webhosting don't even use PHPMyAdmin 8O and their MYSQL admin software is very basic.
HOw are you doing the DNS of the site so it points to your new site?
im not - i copied the database & files from my own site to the school's site,
eventually got it all working on moorsidehigh.com after spending all day at it yesterday..
Looks good I will check it out definately.
@craig - em - don't you need to change a few more of the defaults (logo - name etc) before going public
I didn't mean to make anyone deploy before they were ready
Mind - having looked at the old site I can see why you've changed over so quickly now
PS - I'd keep the old one - you could win an award for it :P
will change the logo as soon as i can get one designed
The old site was thrown up simply so that we "had one".
At least with the new one, i can assign people to keep it up-to-date.
There seems to a problem with the green "urgent news" box to the right of the smooth gallery on the front page. Although in firefox it displays mostly okay if the text box is not full in IE it can throw out whole page and display some of the left hand modules on the right. To get everything to display correctly the high of the module needs to be set in the css. add a line setting the id "top" to 213.
Nice job by the way. As someone who has been using Joomla since its Mambo days I'm impressed. So much so that I may replace my school site with this template.
Oh still got a problem displaying properly in ie 6
Cheers for the heads up Damo
The issue has been sorted now. To fix add the following to line 114 of the template_css.css
Will be updating the download shortly.Code:height: 218px;
I have tried to manage the smoothgallery module but have come up against a little problem.
When i try and access the image manager when i click on the link i get a blank page and thats it. Is this correct. I have tried it in both Safari and Firefox for OS X.
I would like to add new pictures to the Edugeek Joomla template but not directly to the folder that they reside in as i would like to get used to managing the site through Joomla itself.
I hope that makes sense.
Is it something that i am doing wrong? I have looked at the installation notes and it says something about setting the path for the smotthgalery installation. Where would i find this path setting so i can check it? or does it not need checking? It seems all links from the smoothgallery have the same end results.
Here is a quick guide
Hope that makes some senselogin via backend admin account
choose smooth gallery from the components menu
click on the upload images icon
browse to the folder /stories/smoothgallery ( this has to be set to 777 via ftp)
upload your images
once you have uploaded your images go back to the smooth gallery admin page
choose album id 1 from the drop down menu - you will now see the current images used in the banner
click new from the top right menu
selct one of your new uploaded images from the drop down menu
fill in the relevent info
set id to 1
Then publish this new item, unpublish the old ones.
