User Guide - Customise:themes:designing-themes

Themes consist of a CSS file, layout files and templates, which are a mix of HTML and PHP template tags. The best way to design a theme is to copy the default theme, Aplonis, and begin editing from there. Themes are created by uploading a folder to the themes folder (.. /site/themes/). The name of the theme folder should be the same as the theme name, in “simple” form (lowercase letters, dashes instead of spaces) . - css main.css - templates - projects_list.html -projects_view.html - layout_projects.php - layout_default.php - info.php A more intricate theme may look like this: - css - main.css - ie - ie6.css - js - actions.js - img - logo.jpg - background.jpg - templates - projects_list.html - projects_view.html - layout_projects.php - layout_default.php - info.php - plugin.php Each theme must have a file called info.php which contains information about it that will be displayed on the Themes page in the back-end.

Then, it was announced that software programs using GIF would require a license (this was because of the Unisys patent for the LZW compression method used in GIF). This change sped up the development for its successor: the PNG format. PNG, which stands for Portable Network Graphics, gained popularity and, nowadays, it’s probably the most used image format when it comes to web design, alongside JPEG. In this guide, we will cover everything you, as a web designer, need to know about the PNG image format. Understanding Digital Image Formats There are many digital image formats available for you to use, but only some of them are optimized for web use. Why are certain image formats suitable for the web, while others aren’t? Compression Methods There are two general kinds of image compression methods: lossy and lossless.

PNG uses a lossless compression algorithm. PNG-8 and PNG-24. CSS Tools: Reset CSS. The goal of a reset stylesheet is to reduce browser inconsistencies in things like default line heights, margins and font sizes of headings, and so on.

CSS Tools: Reset CSS

The general reasoning behind this was discussed in a May 2007 post, if you're interested. Reset styles quite often appear in CSS frameworks, and the original "meyerweb reset" found its way into Blueprint, among others. The reset styles given here are intentionally very generic. There isn't any default color or background set for the body element, for example. I don't particularly recommend that you just use this in its unaltered state in your own projects. In other words, this is a starting point, not a self-contained black box of no-touchiness. If you want to use my reset styles, then feel free!

Unfortunately it wasn't very popular and got practically no support in the sense of other applications handling that format. Even HP doesn't support it. You can search their site and find practically nothing about it. The software was used to scan hardcopies of a document and save them in digital format. The file extension used was .hpd HP scanners now offer the pdf format as well as various image formats, but they no longer offer the .hpd format. The software also had a viewer (it is the only software that can view those files!!!)
