BlueBusiness theme
#1
Hiya
This is a support thread for BlueBusiness theme, so ask the questions here.

Short installation notes are described in extend.
Theme offers couple additional features and tweaks, like integrated slimbox effect for images, compatibility with i18n plugins (gallery, multilanguage, advanced menu, search) etc.

For all bloodthirsty demo hunters, a working example is available on getsimple template demo page.
You can download BlueBusiness theme from GS extend

Hi.
I created two private pages indexbox1 and indexbox2, but they are not appeared on index page.
What happened?
What code should be inserted in the main page so that they appear?
I am not a programmer

Ohh there's a small flaw I've found right now.
Replace template file with the one attached, and everything should work by hand.

I'll update theme package in extend soon as there are couple more improvements I've made.

The header-backg.jpg disappeared when I installed 1.1. How do I enable it again? The image file is still there.

I just discovered that bug. It was related to frame image, where I had to change its dimension not to let the menu overlap on the logo container. On demo page it was of course working, while package contained a working version of css file.

Try latest v1.2, as it should get rid of all bugs I found.
It has also additional improvements, and supports more plugins.
Full changelog can be found in latest news on demo page.


btw. take a closer look at the "Program 2012" unordered list on your website. It doesn't start with <ul> tag, and that's why whole list doesn't display as it should.
I'd also propose to split the content on frontpage from contentboxes by using a <hr>, and add small thumbnails to content boxes. Look at demo page Wink

ps. let me know if you find any bugs in latest release.

Hi! I'd appreciate if you can tell me if this is possible:

I would like to have second level menus (submenus), without their parrent linking to a specific page.

For example, there is parent menu "Menu Text", and it has submenus, "Submenu 1" and "Submenu 2"; it is achieved by creating page for "Menu Text", and then nesting pages "Submenu 1" and "Submenu 2" under that page. However, I do not want page "Menu Text" to exist, I just want text to be there as first-level menu, so when it's mouse-hovered or clicked, just to display submenus.

I hope I managed to explain what I'd like to accomplish... Thanks in advance! This is really nice theme! Smile

This is more a question about GS and i18n plugin functionality, as it's not strictly theme related.
But there is a way to prevent a menu item from leading to its proper content. Even two ways, but I stay with simpler method as it doesn't base on javascript.

I assume you have i18n plugin installed, so:
1. add a new page, and set it as one of top lvl menu items - lets say you name it "disabledpage"
2. add as many subpages (submenu items) as you wish
3. connect through ftp to your hosting account, find the disabledpage.xml in /data/pages and edit it with a text editor (for example notepad2).
Code:
Find :
<url><![CDATA[disabledpage]]></url>

change to :
<url><![CDATA[#]]></url>
Upload the file overwriting earlier version.

4. Delete /data/other/i18n_menu_cache.xml file

Refresh your page and see if everything works.


You will need to repeat whole process every time you edit and save the parent page.

ps. you can add a css rule to this specific menu item, that will prevent the cursor from being changed to "hand" when you hover the link. Just add below line to style.css around line 295
Code:
nav#site-navigation > ul > li.x > a { cursor:default !important; }


edit: forgot about i18n_customfields plugin

Hi, yojoe; thanks for quick feedback and thorough reply, and sorry for bringing up the issue that was not related exactly to your theme; I saw that some themes even did not support second-level menu, so I thought it was related to this theme...

However, your method did not work for me...

Seeing that there's no "native" solution to this problem, I've changed my mind, so I will not need such a behaviour; therefore, there is no need for you to deal further with this issue, but I will describe it, in case someone else comes with the similar request.

So, first of all, I could not find exact code you mentioned above; this is the entire code in my page:

Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<item><pubDate>Sat, 30 Jun 2012 23:50:28 +0200</pubDate><title>MY TITLE</title><url>my-title</url><meta/><metad/><template>template.php</template><content/><author>name-of-the-author</author><parent/><menu/><menuStatus>Y</menuStatus><private/><menuOrder><![CDATA[3]]></menuOrder></item>

So, I see here page slug between URL tags, and page order after "CDATA"; I've tried replacing one of them or both with "#", and here is the result:

- If I replace CDATA[3] with CDATA[#], page comes to the first position in menu;

- If I replace "my-title" (between url tags) with "#", page indeed does not load any longer; but its link becomes "mysite.com/#"... so when I click it, it loads home page... In addition, I get a strange row in "View all pages" section: it's empty, and there is only "+" sign at the right side; mouse hover that sign gives tooltip "Add new page: my-title", and when I click it, indeed new balnk page is created...

Adding line in style.css does not change that.

Looks like it's better to give up my idea, LOL. Anyway, thank you for efforts to help! Smile

Assuming you use the I18N plugin, you can use custom rendering for your navigation, using a component navitem like this:
Code:
<li class="<?php echo $item->classes; ?>">
  <?php if ($item->hasChildren) { ?>
    <?php echo htmlspecialchars($item->text); ?>
  <?php } else { ?>
    <a href="<?php echo htmlspecialchars($item->link); ?>">
      <?php echo htmlspecialchars($item->text); ?>
    </a>
  <?php } ?>
  <?php if ($item->isOpen) { ?>
    <ul><?php $item->outputChildren(); ?></ul>
  <?php } ?>
</li>
and replace the navigation call in the template with:
Code:
get_i18n_navigation(return_page_slug(),0,2,I18N_SHOW_MENU|I18N_FILTER_LANGUAGE,'navitem');
I18N, I18N Search, I18N Gallery, I18N Special Pages - essential plugins for multi-language sites.

You forgot about one crucial thing: http://get-simple.info/extend/plugin/i18n/69/ Wink
I wrongly assumed that you had i18n plugin already installed.

There are couple minor things I need to fix in this theme, and if there will be enough time, I might look at GS' menu_data() function. But tbh. GS has to be improved a lot in aspects of managing a nested navitagion.
And that's why I rather recommend using Mvlcek's i18n plugin, especially for multilanguage websites.

Hi Yojoe,

Nice theme. Had a bit of trouble looking at the css in BB1.4 because it seems to be all on one line. I too have had problems with line endings in my css files. Sometimes they get double spaced and sometimes they go all on one line. Have you any idea how it happens?

Shawn has told me the css is 'minified'.

I have installed the I18N Gallery plugin with the BlueBusiness theme. Is there a way to change the header background with a I18N image slideshow?

You mean the glass skyscraper's photo ?
I've been thinking about implementing a slideshow script into theme, which could be maintained without additional plugins.
To add an i18n slideshow theme's code need couple fixes to provide a container, and let existing elements stay in place.
You have to edit template's code (template.php file), and change line 60 to:
Code:
<img src="<?php get_theme_url(); ?>/gfx/header-frame.png" style="position:relative;z-index:5;top:0;left:0;">
<section style="width:100%;height:207px;position:absolute;top:47px;left:0;overflow:hidden;">

CALL I18N SLIDESHOW HERE

</section>
Also change line 72 to
Code:
<figure id="logo" style="z-index: 5;">
and that should do.

Unfortunately I can't guarantee that embedded i18n slideshow won't behave odd, as above code adds just a place to display it.

Dear yojoe and Forum Members,

I will use this Bluebusiness theme, but i think horizantal size is small. Is there any solution about it? It can be full screen or larger than normal theme. On larger screen monitors it looks very narrow.

Best Regards.

and also i want to change background. Instead of blue background i want to use different.

You might change background colours in .css files.
Use firebug (in firefox or chrome) to locate certain template elements css styles.

Unfortunately this theme was designed specially as a business theme for simple websites of small companies. It doesn't support mobile nor RWD technologies.

To make it wider, you would have to change width of couple containers like #wrapper or <header>, but heade'rs frame is animg, thus you'd have to lengthen it manually.

Hello,

i see that you made any update of the Theme now. Little question is there any posibility to make a switch inside the theme to change the "default" colors (current blue) to another one ? Like the "RA Theme" ?

You made any changes for mobile device support too ????
