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.

Re: Artisteer 2.5 native support

I'm the author of Cool Template and I'd love to work to get support for MojoPortal into the site.

I posted about adding support for it here: http://www.mojoportal.com/Forums/Thread.aspx?thread=6052&mid=34&pageid=5&ItemID=4&pagenumber=1#post24860 but didn't get any response.

Anyone should be able to use the custom export system of my site to create an export.  It's an open system that's documented here: http://cooltemplate.com/Export-Design-Guide

I'd add support myself but am a little intimidated by the mojo portal theme system.  How many files are required for a custom theme?

I forget.  Does MojoPortal have a web interface for uploading templates as zip files?

I particularly like the way wordpress does this.  Joomla also has a nice web interface for it and they're adding it to the new Drupal 7 which should be released in the next week or two.

Hey Bryan, it's great to see you participating here. I'm going to move my commenting on Cool Template over to your original Cool Template thread.

Re: Artisteer 2.5 native support

Hi Bryan,

Thank you for your participation.

The mojoPortal skinning system is quite simple. Basically, it's just a lot of CSS, which I am sure you are very good at considering what you have created with Cool Template. If you like, I can work with you on the mojoPortal export for Cool Template and answer any questions you have about the mojoPortal skinning system. My email address is joe (at) i7media (dot) net.

mojoPortal doesn't currently support uploading templates as ZIP files but it is on the Road Map. Also on the Road Map, is the ability to edit a skin from within the site.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
