Company website upgrade, day 2&3So, today I continue on upgrading our company website. We have an internally developed product for simple "page" management, you can add pages, within that page add new pages, images or files. That product will probably released sooner rather than later BTW, probably under the Products.CustomPages name.
Working with the pages product raised the following traceback:

This error occurred after I changed the language from Neutral to Norwegian - so as I thought, a portal_catalog clear and reindex operation fixed that issue.
On to day 3.. been trying different themes and it is easy to mess up things, but found, finally, that beyondsskins.responsive could be used. Spent a bit of the day tracking down a bug where portlets were rendered downwards in the middle of the page, and tracked that back to malformed HTML that somehow got past the HTML-parsing engine.
Worked a bit on the Products.CustomPages product (not published yet), putting it into an egg directory structure and adding some features.
So, back to theming. The responsive skin is nice, but the columns weren't covering the whole page as they should. Tried setting width for columns in the responsive CSS - that didn't work. Looked through the HTML code, and found that a CSS file from the drupal theme was referenced. Scratched my head a bit about that one on how to remove it and thought "Aha!" - I can just remove it from the entire setup (using buildout).
I have used the responsive skin earlier when I needed a quick fix for my soccer team. One of the changes made there was that I converted the header image from png to jpg and chose a relatively low quality - making the page much faster to load.
So here I was looking on that the design and that the logo is too small. Yesterday I was working with the Drupal theme, but now I needed a somewhat bigger logo. So I did an undo on the logo.png file, downloaded it into the static theme folder on the FS, adjusted the bg.jpg in the responsive package to blend the colors better with the header (using GIMP, background and radient fill - taking the color from the edge of the header image), and then undid the undo on logo.jpg to have that ready for the Drupal theme.
OK. That's enough I think, time to relax a bit after working hard. :)
Stay tuned for the continued upgrade saga. [;]
