The FlatPress Site Theme

Post by NorfolkGreg » Fri Jan 08, 2021 5:52 pm

The FlatPress site seems to have a theme that includes a horizontal menu and side bar on desktop screens and a "hamburger" menu button with sidebar moved to the footer position on phones. I cannot find a similar theme available in the Wiki Is there one available. It's just what I would like!

I reckon I'm capable of editing the colour scheme and fonts (as I'm OK with HTML and CSS), but I'm a bit lost with PHP and Smarty - and it looks as if I may need those skills to move the "column" block above the "main" block using Smarty to do that!

In fact, it's the "FlatMaas" theme by drudo which evolved over the years. I planned to clean it up properly and put it on the wiki, but didn't manage to do so yet.
I attached it, feel free to adapt and rework. Please be aware it might contain unused code and images. Also, the admin area is a little buggy, e.g. on the widget page.

The horizontal menu is done hard-coded in header.tpl. This is just a temporary solution and should better be done with a blockparser widget in the top area, displaying the static "menu" page (see below). I never found the time to fix the CSS to have that looking good, so for now I just go with plain HTML.

Hope that helps you :)

All the best,

My "menu" page:

Code: Select all

Apologies for the very long delay in thanking you! As you'll have seen from my further cluster of posts, I'm back exploring FlatPress.

I take some consolation because, as I write, it's been downloaded 52 times, so I'm sure have prove useful for others too.

I shall now download it myself to see how it works and how I might tinker with it.

Thanks again for making it available.
