Responsivity

The template is fully responsive. Using mediaquerries in the stylesheet, there are set break points:

  • full width (over 1450px) with 4 columns in a row - (column width = 25%)
  • @media screen and (max-width: 1450px) with 3 columns in a row (column width = 33.333%)
  • @media screen and (max-width: 1200px) with 2 columns in a row (column width = 50%)

Inserting tables

author, dd.mm.yyyy

Tables may also be inserted on pages. They bay be of any width. In the newsbox the, the overlapping content of a table is hidden, but the table is movable (scrollable left/right).

Year Members Men Women Children
2000 250 120 100 30
2001 360 140 140 80
2002 590 230 190 170

There is one requirement, however. If a table shall overlap the qidth of the column, it shall be put into its own DIV container. To do so, follow the steps:

  1. make a new row and write any dummy text (e.g. table)
  2. highlight the text and chose DIV
  3. replace the "table" by real table of your choise.
  4. add data into the table
  5. save

Scrolling table

Click into the table and use either a mouse or arrow keys to move the table.

Using plugins

author, dd.mm.yyyy

hi-fancybox

All images in this template are zoomable. It is the feature of the hi-fancybox plugin.

Using this plugin requiers to link inserted image to its original and assign the link with zoom class. The class shall be (it is added in this stylesheet) added in the stylesheet. The class may be formated (border, padding, background, other effects) or it may be left empty.

Using the zoom_g class you may assign more images on the same site (in the newsbox) and show them as a controlled slideshow.

img01.jpg img02.jpg img03.jpg img04.jpg

Using the zoom_i class you may show any external page or document in a stand-alone lightbox.

 

slideshow

slideshow by Christoph M. Becker facilitates displaying a scrolling slideshow of images (optionally with links and with a description). It has no back-end functionality to manage the galleries. Instead the images have to be uploaded via FTP or the CMSimple_XH file manager. Additional information for the links and the description has to be entered manually in a special text file.

Changelog

Tata, 07.02.2024

© 2024 by Tata"newspaper" version 1.2
A template for CMSimple_XH 1.7.x

Simple template for a "multinewsboxed" newspaper.

  • The template doesn't require any additional plugins and has no navigation for a user.
  • The navigation is only available in admin mode.
  • Pages are named in a sequence e.g. News01, News02,... These names ar mandatory, as they are used in the newsbox funktions in the template.
  • Page content is split into four columns and is fully responsive.
  • The news in newsboxes may contain texts, images, video, sound and/or another plugin calls.
  • It is recommended to keep the images in rational dimensions (e.g. max. width 800px).
  • However, the template may offer even more sexi page using the hi-fancybox. In this case it is recommended to use two sets of images (e.g. r_img.jpg / 600px and z-img - 1200px).
  • The z-images may then be used as the targets to "zoom" images zoomed by hi-fancybox plugin.
  • Number of newsboxes is unlimitted - the only necessary step is to copy the entire newsbox code block and extend any of the columns in the template.
  • It is also to consider the number and leght of newsbox content so the lenght of all columns will have about the same value. This is important for narrower displays, where the columns are placed on the beginning of next row.

CHANGELOG

  • changed font
  • added "To the TOP" button
  • set max-height to newsbox; added "Read more..." hvoer-field
  • corrected small bugs and tipos in template and styesheet
