View Full Version : Default Graphics set for PP

September 28th, 2004, 05:34 AM

i have some good graphics skills and wondered if Micheal would'nt mind the suggestion that i create an new set of default optimized graphix for PP, my thought is to make them slightly better looking for a white background and to make the entire set of graphics smaller (filesize wise) if included in the distro...

what ya think? - they will all be original (created by me) and there will be free to all.

Photopost works well on PHP5 as long as you allow longarrays ;)

and set - output_buffering = 4096

also i have an error using php 5 on index.php which is

Notice: Undefined variable: argv in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\ppgallery\index.php on line

maybe just turn notices off...

Yep I think files for the distribution ought to easy to define what they are.

My personal thought on the buttons would be to get rid of them and do something like a lot of forums do and include a CSS tag for buttons like

.buttons {
background-color: #408080;
color: #D0E8E8;
font-size: 9pt;
font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
border-top-width: 2px;
border-right-width: 2px;
border-bottom-width: 2px;
border-left-width: 2px;
border-top-style: solid;
border-right-style: solid;
border-bottom-style: solid;
border-left-style: solid;
border-top-color: #5AADAD;
border-right-color: #316262;
border-bottom-color: #336666;
border-left-color: #669999;
font-weight: bold;

That way you do away with images entirely and the buttons would use CSS which would change with each style and be totally controllable in look and feel for each style or in general using TRANSPARENT images which would lay on top of a predefined style.

At any rate thats my opinion on making sure of having the ultimate flexibility to make sure the buttons would look right on each style.

I agree having static images for all styles just looks terrible.

i actually tried that :) besides the 'execute search' button there were only a few incidences that would use the .buttons tag, unless i edited the templates also. so i plumped for a generic buttons styling that could work with almost any colour (besides white of course) :) i may create more css styles, a style for all tastes :)
