Basic theme ( Zen 1.5)

gpmill5 Member

No longer allows user to change display rate or displays number of photos in album. How can these be implemented. I do not see any differences in file sizes between Zen 1.4.11 and 1.5 (of course, that may not have any bearing on issue). Thank you

    We actually have not removed any functionality from the basic theme.

    • "display rate"? Do you mean rating? That is a plugin you need to enable.
    • "displays number of photos" What do you mean by that?

    I used Effervescence on 1.4.3.2. Of course, it has been dropped. There was a dialog box in upper right corner of screen that allowed user to select a time differential between photos, such as 1 second, 2 seconds ... I do not see this dialog box in 1.5. It works in 1.4.11. Also, the number of the current photo and the total number of photos in that album was also displayed (ie. 11/15). I do not see that in 1.5 either.
    Thanks for the prompt reply.

    You can still use Efferscence if you like. It will still work currently.

    There was a dialog box in upper right corner of screen that allowed user to select a time differential between photos, such as 1 second, 2 seconds ..

    I can only think of the slideshow plugin having such a selector once you called a slideshow.

    Also, the number of the current photo and the total number of photos in that album was also displayed (ie. 11/15).

    Okay. The basic theme never had this. You have to modify thte theme if you want this by adding echo imageNumber() .' of '. getNumImages(); where you want it to appear.

    Not all themes do the same by nature but you can always modify it.

    I just ran 'default' theme in 1.4.3.2 and it displays the 'seconds differential between pictures' dialog box in the upper right corner and the image number/image count immediately behind the picture filename. The 'Basic" theme in 1.4.11 and 1.5 does neither. This is the exact screen shot above the picture in 1.4.3.2 "Birds: 20090714-122352 (8/18)". And Effervescence_plus did not work properly in 1.4.11 or 1.5. I used the settings from 1.4.3.2 to configure pictures/row and rows/page in 1.4.11 and 1.5. In both releases, Effervescence stacks all the pictures, etc down the left side of the screen. So I have to use Basic theme.

    So which file and what line number do I need to place the code above for the image numbers? I can work with Perl, but haven't got the knack for PHP yet!

    If you like, I can give you my website name and you can look at the 'default' theme on 1.4.3.2.

    Again, I do appreciate your knowledge and help.

    That really sounds like the slideshow to me and this always only appeared if you click thte slideshow button. The basic them never had this intially.

    It probably would be on the theme's image.php. You have to add it where you want to show it? I suggest you look at the theming tutorial to get familiar with the theme basics. You might need to adjust CSS as well (don't edit the original theme, make a custom copy as advised in the tutorial).
