  1. There are great features on all these systems, windows (phone), android, linux, ios and mac os x. I get my first mac 2007. It was a white MacBook. Previously i used windows laptops or build a computer together for my own. But since the experience with Mac OS X i would never go back to windows. Its not these color or that shiny button. Its the fact, that the combination of hardware and software works simply better together. Sure, Windows 7 and Windows 8 are great operating systems too altthough i think the strategy from microsoft with Windows 8 were a few steps to much. I felt never wrong with the skeumorphism design. I think it can be a door opener for people who never worked before with a computer or a smartphone or whatever. Maybe the digital version of a sheet of paper reduced a litte bit the barrier to a real sheet of paper. Some people say that around 20 or 30 years with computers thats not neccessary any more. Ok, maybe thats right. Since the days of Windows 8 everything became flat. When i saw the first screenshots of iOS 7 i thought whats that for a bullshit. Months later its not that big deal for me anymore. But it seems some of the visual design had lost these love for the detail the skeumorphism design had in my perspective. When it comes to the future i think Apple is on the right way so far. What Pete said, the bullshit from the news about Apple are the rumors on every fucking day. The next mac have an arm processor, the next iphone looks like this, the iwatch, the itv and so on. Its horrible. I don't need a brand new designed smartphone or notebook every year. For me its more important that they improve the details: software, better camera, battery, touchid and these things. Look at the fragmentation problem on android or on the inexpensive hardware that runs windows. That's i think is a core problem for both, google and microsoft. And on both platforms you get these preinstalled third party bloatware. Yes, you get entry level products. Thats good. But maybe the customer feels sick with these products. In conclusion i think Apple doesn't make all right but they make some things better than the other. So maybe you heard the sentence 'it just works'. For me its truth...
  2. I had a dream last night that Jonathan updated the module. When i woke up i realize that was not a dream . It works now for me. Thanks for your work...
  3. Thanks guys. With Horsts suggestion and with $spex->setLayout(false) i became a blank site where only the child templates are rendered, no header, no footer in my case. With the update from Jonathan it seems we are on the right road again . I have the _base markup and within the child templates. But now in the child templates the $page variable contains not the fields from the child template but from the parent page.
  4. I have set up the _base.php file with the markup for header and footer. Then i have a default layout file with only one line: echo $spex->slot('content') Now i have a page, lets say a feature page of an application. As childrens of these page i have pages with feature 1, feature 2 and so on. Feature 1 should render a headline, feature 2 an image and maybe feature 3 a table. In the parent page i loop over the childrens: foreach ($page->children() as $c) { echo $c->render(); } The result is, that i became the whole page markup with header and footer with each call of the render method. This is probably the expected result. But maybe there a way to render only the content of the template file without the html from the _base.php file.
  5. I have one question that becomes a problem for me. I have pages with children as something like content blocks. One should render a image, another a text and so on. When i loop through the children and render it, then i became the whole page... Maybe i overlooked something but is there a way to render only the template file without the _base.php markup?
  6. In my experience, email making right is a science in itself. When you think different browsers are horrible, yes email is more horrible. There are so many different clients out there, desktop and webmail clients. I think the important things are: always use <table> and only inline styles. Google Mail for example removes all <style>-blocks. I have some good experiences with Zurb's E-Mail Framework Ink (http://zurb.com/ink/). Some good resources you can find from MailChimp (http://templates.mailchimp.com) or Campaign Monitor (http://www.campaignmonitor.com/resources/will-it-work/).
  7. what the hell is with the sound great...
  8. We use the Zend framework at work and as a designer i fight nearly every day with this monster . I am quite often in the situation asking a developer if its possible to get this particular markup or something else. Then i hear about decorators and forms and so on and we end with javascript hacks to inject some markup. Anyway...i think you have 2 options! the hard way in my opinion is learn something more about the zend framework. The other way is go with processwire. I couldt'n see anything at your application why you shouldt'n migrate to pw. The forum here is full of content to make this working... When it comes to pdf generation we use princexml (http://www.princexml.com). After trying some other libraries i think its the best html to pdf conversion option out there. I think they have the widest support HTML, CSS and Javascript. And yes, its great and its expensive . But the price is relative when you earn money with that... Greetings...
  9. It seems the module doesn't work in version 2.4. I tried it in a fresh 2.3 copy and it works as expected. In the current version i became a 'login failed' error where the '@' was converted in a '-' as Ryan wrote in a earlier post. Does anyone an idea how to fix this. I have a client who asks for the posibility to login users with email adresses...
  10. a more feature rich solution: http://mobiledetect.net
  11. I went with both, bootstrap and foundation, in the past. i prefer foundation because i think its more a starting point with a very basic style. bootstrap is more production ready but in the last months, dozens of sites came out with bootstrap. Sometimes i think, please, i will no longer see that bootstrap style...
  12. there are also some applications for the fancy sass, scss, compass, less or coffescript stuff... http://incident57.com/codekit/ http://mhs.github.io/scout-app/ http://koala-app.com
  13. that reminds me of a game on the good old amiga 500: F/A-18 Interceptor...i started from a aircraft carrier and i flew with maximum speed through the golden gate bridge...
  14. google himself gave an answer when there are to many markers (https://developers.google.com/maps/articles/toomanymarkers?hl=de). marker clusterer is one option. maybe someone finds the other solutions interesting... greetings
  15. hi kongondo, yes your suggestion make sense. first i thought the changes on the page title were enough (color, line-through). but maybe the toggle of the label is one step smarter . i updated the repos on github. i don't know whether the code changes are efficent than i am not a coder too . greetings...
