Has anyone had any success with a fully responsive template?
 
Are there any out there? I am about to hack myself one working with the widewind theme - will share it when when I have made some progress. 

But dont want to re-invent the world should something already exist

regards

For what its worth, this is the responsive version of wide wind that i managed - tests decent on chrome book and android devices

I had to take some short cuts to it- the black menu bar is a static borrowed from a wp template.  The actual gallery menu bar is pushed out of the way. the moment a user logs in the responsiveness gets thrown out the door.

There is other work related to the modal windows etc that needs to be done - but for the common visitor who doesnt need to login, it paints well on a mobile device ..

Jagan,

Nice work... this is the first working responsive theme I've seen! People have been trying to do this for quite a while. As you've discovered, there is a lot about the way Gallery3 was first created (over 10 years ago) that is "fixed length" and "fixed position" which make a truly responsive theme hard to pull off. That's a nice trick, managing to push the Gallery menu "out of the way".

Were you able to do this all within the .css files? Or did it take modifying some of the .php code as well?

I had to do it with both the .css file as well as the .php files that exist in the widewind theme.  As of now - its only three files in the template directory

/themes/widewind/css/screen.css
/themes/widewind/views/page.html.php
/themes/widewind/views/album.html.php   

There is an external reference to the WP CSS file for the responsive menu. At some point i will figure out the elements i need and import it into the current css. 

As mentioned before once a user logs in the additional user options  messes up the presentation (its still responsive though!).. eg the individual menu options appear like in the below images  . 
the main menu that is moved down is still functional and renders normally . its just that its not the responsive type!

But I am the only admin/user of this gallery so i can live with that - this wont work with gallery users who have a larger number of users as it may get annoying for them. 

I am attaching the three files here should anyone wants to go with it - please do remember to back up your current files in the locations mentioned above!

Well yahoo is not accepting e-mail from me again. I am hping to have my DNS servers back in full operation so google and yahoo and the big names all like my frickin' e-mail again.



ANYWAY...This is what I have been needing for YEARS...I tossed it on my server and noticed there is some hardcoded links and such I believe. I only had a few minutes to poke around and check some stuff. I am going to drop a clean install on a domain and test this and see if I can edit out what I need...

I will report back my findings...!!

Super excited to finally have this in production!!

Forgot to add...my current test domain for it is randomdailymemes.com. It has a significantly modified install right now as well. A clean install is what I need to put it on for testing.

Jagan,

Unfortunately, googlegroups does not appear to allow file attachments to messages to be sent to the group (it's a security issue). But if you send them to me:  jrlist  at  thepostalzone.com  then I can take a look at them and -- if you wish, I can post them to a hidden place on my website where people can be directed to go to download them if they want to experiment.

Chris,

Your site at randomdailymemes.com seems to be very "response". Do you have the same problem Jagan mentions when you log-in -- meaning, do the responsive aspects go all wonky?

Yes...login messes it up.

I will do a clean install. I have SIGNIFICANTLY hacked my main site to make it work for my needs...forced advertising spots, forced sizing...really hacked to hell...lol...

I only had about 10 minutes earlier as we had a birthday party for my 7yo this afternoon. I will get back on it tonight hopefully. So far I am super stoked that someone managed to break this code once and for all...lol...

Did some minor re-work, including copying the dependent WP files into a separate directory. 

This zip file has some cleaner files for re-use. 
http://www.rafcommands.com/galleries/responsive.zip  

Upload in your widewind folder
\css 
\---screen.css
\extras (This is the new directory with all the bits and pieces to make the black info bar work)
\ ---bootstrap.min.css  
\ ---style.css
\ ---jquery.js
\ ---scripts.js
\ ---header.png (replace with your header image)
\views
\ ---page.html.php  (depending on where your gallery is - you should fix the five  lines that refer to the files in /extras/ sub directory - also update the link placeholders in the hardcoded info bar..)
\ ---album.html.php

I tossed it on my server in place of one of my test sites and it eventually links back to YOUR site within the code…

There is some stuff hardcoded in there that would need removed…??

I love the layout of your finished product and would love to get mine to be responsive. I have a hacked version that passed compliance, but was never a final solution. Was just to keep me indexed on google properly… I am the ONLY user on my site as it is just a memes site.

RandomDailyMemes.com is the test URL I am using right now.

Chris,

I checked the test site - it still has the old page.html.php with the hardcoded links in it.
eg.. this still appears in the template
 
<li id="menu-item-1" class="menu-item menu-item-1"><a href="http://www.rafcommands.com">Home</a></li>
<li id="menu-item-2" class="menu-item menu-item-2"><a href="http://www.rafcommands.com/forum">RAF Co 

etc.. it should not be there. 


The zip file i had provided earlier should have a cleaned up template with some random test links in it. Can you verify that the current page.html.php is updated with the newest one in the zip i have given.


make sure you upload the new "extras" folder into your widewind folder .. (Along with css and views folders)..

And yes - it passes the google mobile readiness test!

Jagan,

Nice. This new .zip and the clear instructions in your message make getting this up and running a breeze. I hope I can find time during this busy end-of-year season to get into it... maybe figure out the log-in issue. Thanks again!

I will slot some time to go through the process and files and verify that I have updated everything with your latest files. I should have a few hours tomorrow night to focus on it.

You are doing tremendous work and I cannot evn begin to thank you for this...I think I found you on facebook...accept my friend request. Would love to chat directly about the responsive template...

Ok...so I got some time this evening and have isolated a new domain for testing. I have installed a fresh clean install of the 3.0.9 and tossed the jag-responsive files in place.

TopDailyMemes.com is the domain. Feel free to poke at it from your side. I will gladly give access to the servers if anyone needs.

I edited the logo. I have touched nothing else.

Issues I currently have:

PHP is an OLD OLD version...it was the last version 3.0.9 ran on.

My DNS server is still jacked up and google doesn't like it.

I will run through my testing of what I can tomorrow once a lot of the new settings and changes on my servers propogate over the next 24 hours.

I hope to have all new hardware and entirely new updated servers in place VERY soon. They are physically in place...they just need to be configured and attached to the network. I am doing this while still maintaining a LIVE server presence on the old machines...it is going to be interesting...I have already lost 3-4 domains worth of e-mail and other crap that I forgot was out there bfore I killed them off...lol..oops. Owell...

Once I get everything updated and a responsive site in place I have no doubt my REAL revenue stream will return on my primary site...

I am writing a check to someone after all of this!! I know it...lol..if nothing else I will spin up a standalone server and give as much FREE hosting to those in need as I can...

Thank you again EVERYONE working to bring this software package back to life...

I should note I can strip these domains and do fresh installs as needed for testing. I have another 60+ domains that can be used for testing also. Most of which will just be duplicate memes sites...yes I am one of those annoying asshats that blankets the world with them...:-D

SOOOOOO...after all that I realized that I could in fact install the 3.1.0 on my servers...as my other current test domains are running it...

So I kill the domain at the server level and started from scratch...

Fresh clean install...

still old php: 


PHP Version 5.3.6


latest 3.1.0

Gallery 3.1+ (development version)
==================================

TopDailyMemes.com

NOTES: I have no analytics or adsense coded in anywhere yet. I am going to add the analytics mod when I get a minute.

In the meantime...my 7yo needs to get owned in Mortal Kombat for an hour or so then I should be back at it..:D

Chris,

This sounds great -- but is there any particular reason you went with installing a fresh version of 3.0.9, instead of the new stable version 3.1.0? I mean, 3.0.9 is totally obsolete... won't run on anything higher than php 5.4 and has that ancient Flash-based image uploader -- not really the best test bed for the modern digital environment.

Chris,

Oops... you answered my question just as I posted it. But still, if you have the option to run even php 5.4.0 I would do that -- there is a difference. And 3.0.9 runs fine under php 5.4.0 so your existing 3.0.9 galleries will still work.

No one has reported losing anything when they simply install 3.1.0 over 3.0.9 so if you backup everything first (just in case), you should be able to update the existing sites and go to php 7.2

Because I am an unorganized raging idiot...:-D

I corrected it...lol. Dumped everything on the domain and started from scratch.

I also spun up BestDailyMemes.com which was WP based until a few months ago. WP is extremely slow for images...glad I can get away from it. :)

I am trying to get advertising in place. Taking notes as best I can.

Yeah. I am thinking I might try to update OhSoHumorous.com (which is my primary and most imortant site). It is 3.0.9 on the old PHP I listed. I might try to update that as well.

I am working on some test methods to make it happen. I have a LOT of hard coded hacks and site verification stuff that has to be present for social media and such. Som much compliance anymore...

Are there any instructions for exactly how to set up the server add mod? I have never actually attempted it and would like to attempt to add several hundred folders into one of the test domains.

All it has for setup is a 'path' entry. I added one. CHMOD to 777 for access (probably not correct, but it worked). Just don't see anything from that point. Still playing around with it.

Ignore server add question...figured it out. Page hadn't been refreshed. Working across multiple browser 'personalities'

I do think I have managed to populate several thousands images so far. I estimate I have approximately 90k memes in the archives right now.

Chris,

Glad you got server add working. Just for reference, there is a page of what seems to be fairly complete instructions at:

http://codex.galleryproject.org/Gallery3:Modules:serveradd

Since you just set up server add, it would be great if you could take a look at the above and see if there's anything to clarify or add to it -- I'm planning of posting a copy of those instructions on a new website eventually, one that contains updated version of some of the most important pages for the old codex. About 8 years ago I used server add successfully but now remember nothing about how I did it -- yet it is a invaluable module for those with a lot of images to get from one installation to another..

I forgot that your
OhSoHumorous.com site has a lot of modifications and hard links, so my suggestion that you could overwrite with 3.1.0 is probably not such a good idea for that site -- unless you kept a complete log of the changes you made as you went? No, neither did I when I extensively modified my Grey Dragon template and a few areas of Gallery 3.0.9 -- Dang it. Now I'm hesitating to upgrade one of my sites to 3.1.0 for that reason.

Server add was actually quite easy and I have already uploaded nearly 20,000 images. I have 97,000 active memes on OSH and will have it duplicated up by this evening.

I will go over those instructions also...

If I do my due diligence and practice proper process I can toss them in my editor and it will highlight all differences between stock, my modded and then the updated. It really is only a few pages that are important. I have so much redundant junk and commented out stuff for my personal notes I can mass delete a lot of it and refine the differences and mod AS NEEDED ONLY with the new responsive.

The entire reason mine is hacked so bad is that I had to have the advertsising and tracking and social media links...alot of things not still needed even.

I will report more as I progress...got a lot of free time this weekend. Have to go to a Christmas party right now tought...back tonight while watching LivePD!!

I have managed to pretty mcuh duplicate the responsive site across 4 domains. Uploaded nearly 50k images with server side. I am working to streamline the entire process.

I am still running old PHP and have great success. I am accounting the few minor link issues and such to outdated PHP. Notes being taken.

I am having amazing sucess dropping these domains in place...making my few edits and populating quickly.

I had been chatting with Jaganpvs via facebook...sorted out a few minor things. I had a few minor adsense questions, but I believe with my current changes and with recent google updates they are beinning to work properly...propogation is king...lol...

I have 4 identical sites running right now...only thing different between them is logo/title/content (pictures). Other than that they are identical. I have been editing all of them side by side with testing and verification.

Once google starts indexing again I see a BIG return from this...I may have to spin up a stand alone windows box to do all of my sitemap management for me. (If anyone needs sitemap assistance let me know...I have an AMAZING software that handles everything)

Also...once these new machines are in place I will be able to offer some levels of hosting for anyone that needs a small test area to use.

Anyway...wrapping up for the night...I have a HUGE race weekend (BMX) ahead, but I hope I can get the DNS done before then...

UPDATE on this situation...

New server is in place. DNS is running and I am slowly adding sites. I am having to tweek the PHP a little bit as it threw a short_open_tag error...ini file says it is on...we are sorting it out.

I am also not sure what version ended up on this machine...hoping he listened and didn't go over 7.2 :)

WOOHOO!!! We have LIFE!!

The new server(s) are in place. I am uploading images to the test domain topdailymemes.com is the first test upload and install.

I will post server specs and details as I progress.

I had some minor propgation delay when establishing the DB after we got the PHP 7.2 in place. I believe everything installed properly...so far no issues...it just skipped the eniter part where I pick admin/site info...it did the password so I was able to easily log in and edit that stuff.

Dropped the responsive theme in place and smooth as silk. Google IMMEDIATELY started to love on the site...even dropped a vinette on an old domain (OhSoHumorous) sitting on the old server...now that the DNS is functioning properly all the majors are having ZERO issues.

This is an amazing WIN!! Thanks EVERYONE that has been working on this...

Ok...we have been chasing an SSL issue most of the day, but I have now installed and populated 6 separate domains...I have it down to a few minutes and then content via server share.

I am going to attempt a MOVE of my old primary domain..OhSoHumorous.

It is running version 3.0.9 on PHP 5.4

New server is PHP 7.2 so I need 3.1.0

Updating to 3.1 on old PHP 5.4 machine will blow up gallery right?

And 3.0.9 can't be directly migrated to the new PHP 7.2 server without blowing it up also.

What is the correct process here? I have been working on so many things related to the new server I have lost my train of thought on the upgrade of this site. lol.

No, that should work just fine.


And 3.0.9 can't be directly migrated to the new PHP 7.2 server without blowing it up also.

If you copy the files/db and don't do a new install I think this should work.

It's probably safest to update to 3.10 and then migrate afterward.

I will be attempting this at some point this week.

In the meantime...SSL still having odd issues.

When I enable the protocol in the config file it breaks the new responsive template stuff. I am sure it is a simple fix for those famiiar with that portion of the code.

The config file is in the application/config/config.php screenshot of the code attached...

I am just basically trying to make the entire site use the secure protocol.

I am not sure if this is going to the entire group or what.

This google groups is confusing once you get a lot of activity on it.

Anyway...

I am using the new responsive theme and the breadcrums are not working...they are not links to anything...they are merely text obove the thumbnails...size changes, but they never become links.

I don't think this is the way it should work and I have no clue why it wouldn't work. These are my new servers...so newest everything and latest install. 

SoHumorous.com is the site I am using as my baseline for testing as I popoluate other sites with new code and changes.

Thoughts?

Yeah, google groups is pretty confusing.  I tend to click the option to open the forum in my browser rather than handle it usenet-style via emails.

In Firefox, I selected "inspect element" while hovering over one of your breadcrumbs and up came a load of stuff about advertising blocks and google errors.  I don't really know what they mean (not being a developer) but my initial guess is that you or your host has injected adverts and broken the breadcrumbs.

Chris,

Yes, Google Groups takes some getting used to. The first, most important thing to remember is to always use "Reply to List" (or else "Reply to All") when replying to someone else's post. That way it will show up in the group website -- but it will not be placed on the "home page", it will be placed under the existing subject thread which you are replying to. Sadly, no way to change this behavior on Google Groups.

I'm trying to get into the habit of always looking at my message before I sent it to make sure the "To:" field always says gallery-3-users@googlegroups.

The *only* way to get a message to show up on the "Home Page" so that it is visible to everyone at first glance on the website is to start a completely *new* message with a new Subject line and send it to the group email address of:

gallery...@googlegroups.com

WARNING: When replying to someone's post if you hit "Reply" or "Reply to Sender" your reply with *only* go to the author of the post you are replying to and never show up anywhere on the group website(!) Yahoo had a way to change that behavior but Google Groups does not.

POSSIBLE SOLUTION: Because replies to an existing Subject are going to be placed under that existing Subject Heading I think people are going to have to get used to using the Search function on the website Home Page which will rapidly return a list of all posts that contain a match to your keyword.

Yeah I think I am going to drop a base page in place and see if I can sort out which/if adsense is killing it.

I am my own host so it is whatever I added to the base code...:)

I have never gotten a response from the author on adding adsense, which he has on his site...I was hoping he would know exactly where to place their code.

I will keep testing my additions one at a time.

I deleted all of my code. I think it could be a module. I am going through them on this next domain build. It sucks when you spot these oddball issues and don't really code...lol..

I actually dropped his theme in place and it also has broken breadcrumbs...:/ It has to be a module or a different issue than google code.

I will test with the new domain from scratch and see if I can trace it back. <sigh>

Sorry, had other stuff going on at my end. it seems that your template is different from what i shared. 

Going by your site,  the TopAdBlock is occurring below the <div id="bd"...     it should be above the bd tag

The Template that i had shared

Your Code:

Dont change the place holders in the original template and you should be fine.

argghhh.. Ignore everything i said..

whatever i have matches your template - so you have the right template BUT .... I dont have this - the Auto Placed google ad that is right in the info-bar DIV.. I suspect that is breaking your code.

Here is the exact file I have uploaded.

I have another site that I am setting up this week with gallery.

I am going to start with your provided files and build out from there. I still haven't ruled out a module causing it yet either.

I should note that I did add raw google adsense code towards the bottom in the footer as the adsense module won't handle the newest code types with google...I turned off the adsense module and added that code just to fill that spot with responsive code.

I would like to think that we are close to just needing a single line of code and allowing google to fill all available spaces once that code runs.

It is somewhat like that...

Did we ever come up with a "final" responsive theme we can try out?
