    • The template side of things are not undergoing any major change for 1.6. I don't see there being any great difference for Gantry whether your using 1.5 or 1.6. 1.6 is still quite a ways out though, so we'll be watching the development to see how things progress.

    • I would have liked to choose the mod-chrome-rendering (the actual skeleton) to be done depending on the modul-suffix ... (does that make sense?)
      (tho not released the demanding customers start complaining :oops: )

    • You don't pick a different chrome based on the suffix, as that would mean you would need to write a new chunk of 'code' for every suffix, however, the suffix is available in the standard chrome at a hight level, so you can easily style as you need. What your asking would require a change in the core Joomla API.
      function modChrome_standard($module, &$params, &$attribs)
      {
           if (!empty ($module->content)) : ?>
                <?php if ($params->get('moduleclass_sfx')!='') : ?>
                <div class="<?php echo $params->get('moduleclass_sfx'); ?>">
                <?php endif; ?>
                     <div class="rt-block">
                          <?php if ($module->showtitle != 0) : ?>
                          <div class="module-title">
                               <h2 class="title"><?php echo $module->title; ?></h2>
                          </div>
                          <?php endif; ?>
                          <?php echo $module->content; ?>
                     </div>
                <?php if ($params->get('moduleclass_sfx')!='') : ?>
                </div>
           <?php endif; ?>
           <?php endif;
      }

    • ah OK, I thought of something (in rough) in modules.php

      $mysuffix = $params->get('moduleclass_sfx', '');
      ...
      switch ($mysuffix)
      {
      case 'modskeleton1':
      bla bla
      break;
      ...
      case 'modskeleton2':
      bla bla
      break;
      ....
      default:
      $mysuffix = 'blank';
      }

      but I'm bad as hell with php and the different layers of joomla.
      So I redraw my request ... :oops:

      Cant wait to read part 3 ... the ordering part of the content/sidebars 8)

    • Maybe this has been asked before, but does this new framework address mobility sites? I noticed many of the template vendors now have features in their templates for iPhone support. I know that a typical Joomla web site can be viewed on an iPhone. However, it would be nice to actually have an option to format the same site for an iPhone. Just curious if this will be added at some point. I'm hoping that it can also be retrofitted for older templates. Thanks.

    • The framework actually has all the bits built in to handle mobility pretty well if you chose to do so. I think actually the better solution is to have a plugin that actually provides a different template entirely for specific iphone or other mobile users. This is something we plan to address more in the future.
