Artisteer 2.5 native support

i think it might be posibale to add native support im not great at xml so i was wondering if some one wants to take a crack.

 

if you look in C:\Program Files (x86)\Artisteer 2\Library\Data\Templates\ you will see all the native supported sites what i was thinking is maby we could edit Joomla.xml or one of the other Templates use them as a blank and edit the xml for mojoportal.

 

as a example of the xml here is the one from joomla.xml

 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<template
  extends="Default"
  caption="Joomla Template"
  icon="Joomla.ico"

Re: Artisteer 2.5 native support

I doubt very much that dropping in an extra xml file is all that is needed, if it was that easy I'm sure Artisteer would add native support for mojoPortal. If you find any documentation about making a plugin for Artisteer export that would be different, but the existence of files like this does not mean one can easily make native support for Artisteer export.

Best,

Joe

Re: Artisteer 2.5 native support

maby just the plane html template folder as a blank ect i just picked that one at randome but it may be posable the files in the folders are not that many just mostly what is normaly exported + a few files and a xml which im assuming is what tells artisteer the default layout and what to do when you export

Re: Artisteer 2.5 native support

If you want to try experimenting to see if you can make an export plugin that is great, if you have any success please let me know.

I did ask Artisteer to support mojoPortal a long time ago, but they said they have a long list of requests to support cms systems and gave me advice on how to support it myself in mojoPortal by using the html export format, so that is what I did. Maybe someday they will reconsider if more people keep asking them to support mojoPortal.

Best,

Joe

Re: Artisteer 2.5 native support

First, you should make a request to the author of that site. They already have an ASP.NET Master Page export, so that could be extended to support a mojoPortal skin format with a little work on their part.

If you want to try doing this yourself, I took a (very) quick crack at it to see what I thought would be required. Here's what I would do to get started:

  1. Create a 3-column template layout
  2. Export your layout in HTML format
  3. Clone an existing non-Artisteer skin for layout.master reference.
  4. At least the following changes will have to be made when merging the cooltemplate HTML into the layout.master:
  • Class BodyContent -> wrapwebsite
  • Class Header -> wrapheader (topnav div inside this)
  • Replace Menu div with <portal:SiteMenu...
  • Class Columns -> wrapcenter
  • div class="Column1" -> <asp:Panel id="divLeft"...
  • div class="MainColumn" -> <asp:Panel id="divCenter"...
  • div class="Column2" -> <asp:Panel id="divRight"...
  • Class Footer -> wrapfooter

Finally, you'll need to clean up all the corresponding CSS in style.css to match the above changes. Use FireBug in FireFox to help you identify things that are out of whack. You'll also need to merge in all of the CSS styling for mojo-specific object styling.

Now, even with that all said, it's still possible that mojoPortal code changes might be needed if cooltemplate has extra styling divs that are not accounted for by mojoPortal. I'd be interested to hear if you can get it working! It would be a worthy addition to the mojoPortal community tutorials.

Re: Artisteer 2.5 native support

Hi,

If we, as a community, can convince the people behind cooltemplate.com to create a mojoPortal export, that would be great. I don't think Joe will be interested in reverse engineering another template utility because keeping up with the changes in Artisteer is time consuming enough.

Thanks,
Joe D.
