Subject Pelt Theme Dispatcher Observations
Date Tue, 28 Mar 2006 13:43:51 GMT
Hi all,

Thought I would revert back to pelt theme from my pili theme to check how
this is doing. I have a few observations that I wanted to clarify before
creating issues for them and sorting them, maybe they already exist as
issues but I haven't found them as of yet.

1) - menus are not collapsable in IE or Firefox.

2) - Some images, notably spacer.gif and pdfdoc.gif are being looked for in
the /themes/images directory when they actually reside in /skin/images
directory and so are not being displayed.

e.g of output source <img alt="spacer" src="themes/images/spacer.gif" />

3) - Viewing in 800x600 mode on Windows the Search the site will overlap the
tabs if there are five or more tabs. [1]

4) - Not important as such but anyway... Comments in the pelt.fv are being
converted into white space it seems in the code. 

e.g - 

<forrest:property name="branding-css-links-input">
        <css url="common.css" media="screen" rel="alternate stylesheet" 
        <css url="leather-dev.css" media="screen" rel="alternate stylesheet"

        <css url="pelt.screen.css" media="screen" theme="Pelt"/>
        <!-- You can request request specific css, but beware that you need
to use the *.dispatcher.css extension!!!-->
        <!-- FIXME: that is not working ATM in forrest for subdir/bla needs
more testing -->
        <!--<css url="#{$getRequest}.dispatcher.css" media="screen"
        <css url="pelt.print.css" media="print"/>

Converts to :-

<link href="themes/common.css" media="screen" rel="alternate stylesheet"
title="common" type="text/css" />
        <link href="themes/leather-dev.css" media="screen" rel="alternate
stylesheet" title="common" type="text/css" />
        <link href="themes/pelt.screen.css" media="screen" rel="stylesheet"
title="Pelt" type="text/css" />
        <link href="themes/pelt.print.css" media="print" rel="stylesheet"
title="pelt.print.css" type="text/css" />

5) - Enabling use of the second instance of branding-breadcrumbs causes an
extra seemingly unwanted gap between the tabs section and the left
navigation/second breadcrumbs sections. This breaks up the continuity
between the tabs and the left navigation, is this by design or a bug?

Note that points 1 and 2 above work fine in a 'Forrest Run' byt when
statically built and deployed to a remote server is when the problems
Seem to occur.(?)
