Typo Themes Viewer 0.2

Posted in , Sat, 01 Jul 2006 23:41:00 GMT

I updated the Typo Themes Viewer with the following features:

  • Lucid theme: No longer a drab gray :) The theme viewer currently uses a fluid layout for non-IE browsers and a fixed layout for IE since I ran into some issues using the fluid layout on IE. Even with the wider left and right margins, I can still get 6 thumbnails across on my 1400x1050 screen for easy viewing.
  • Lightbox image viewer: The Scriptaculous Sortable effect has been removed and replaced with Lightbox (which relies on Scriptaculous). When you click on the thumbnail now a medium sized graphic will appear. Let me know how it works for you.

As before, I'm more than happy to add new themes as they become available. Just post a comment here with the uri(s).

The new look:

Using Lightbox:

Typo Themes Viewer with Lightbox

On a final note, Lightbox 1.x allowed you to close the lightboxed image by clicking on it. In Lightbox 2.x, this has been disbled to allow the group feature to function. If you are only using single images or run separate copies of lightbox.js for singles and groups you can make the following mod to allow closing by clicking on the single lightboxed image:

// look for the following line:
// then add this after:
  = function() { myLightbox.end(); return false; };

Thanks to Tyler Mulligan for this solution.

    Is there a way to set this ONLY if it’s not part of an array. Lightbox has a “group” feature which allows a prev/next overlay on a lightboxed image… but with that code, it closes the images everytime.

    But I agree that when viewing a single image, it’s very intuitive to just have clicking on the lightboxed image to close.

    email me if you have any idea how to solve this problem of mine :)

    Cheers, Carlo

    Hey Guys,

    I used to have typo.leevigraham.com as a sub domain but it now no longer exists.

    Is it possible to get the link from my theme detail page to be changed that it points to my main domain… http://leevigraham.com?

    Cheers Leevi
