Has anyone created some cool Gallery 1.6 Skins?
There are a few that work from the RC1-108 build, but nothing too exciting. I kinda liked the Hotred (black with red text)... but I am looking for more.
Can anyone help?
"few" ? ;-) I only ported 3 skins. And only the default skin works really well.
I would be very very happy to see new skins for 1.6
And I am more than willing to help and assist and integrate them.
Last Gallery v1 Developer.
Tryout the TEST-Version of Gallery 1.6
I think for starters, are the some Gallery 2 ones that we could move back to 1.6? Overall the changes you've made are great. I still love the lightweight feel of 1.6 and the improvements take it that much further. The search is pretty cool too!
I also noticed that the admin text/icons don't line up well in IE7, but are fine in Firefox.
Some of the menus could benefit with the [ ] around the links. It is hard to tell they are links and where the word phrases begin/end. I duhno if that is part of the skin or not though.
I am not good at making them, but I don't mind looking at Gallery 2 and suggesting the ones that I like if you don't mind porting them (as best as possible).
i like the look of:
Carbon, Greypop, Matrix
if you can do layout things too:
all the above plus, tile, slider, siriux.
I like this guys Carbon look:
i thougt you were serious.
Anyway, maybe someone shows up with a new skin for 1.6
I was listing those as easy knockoffs (perhaps) to bring into Gallery 1.
If you want to talk some new ones - what does one have control over.. If I knew what can be customized, I would definitely try to help.
For me "new" is any skin that is not already in 1.6
These are the skins that came with the 108 install:
My suggestion would be to fix all of these first so that they work. The default one is all blank, and bars002 didn't work when i tried it through the configuration wizard. I had to modify the config.php file to attempt to change the skins.
I can work with you in creating some new skins... I am assuming all I really have to do is mess around with the .CSS files and change the color/fonts/perhaps some images?
