Essence theme - proposed changes

Post by c0mp0ser »

Hello everybody

As I mentioned in other posts, I'm during the testing WonderCMS ver. 3.1.4. :roll:

I found a few things in the "Essence" theme that can be changed (improved).

In lines 60 and 83 of the file:

Code: Select all

/themes/essence/css/style.css
I suggest changing z-index: 1041; to z-index: 10 (just in case - 10):

Code: Select all

z-index: 10;
I suggest adding an extra line to the above file:

Code: Select all

.note-toolbar {z-index: 1042;}
All because Summernote and its dialog boxes hide under some page elements.

Hi c0mp0ser.

I was amazed to see your account being registered in 2017 and coming up with these improvements after all the years. :)
First of all thank you! Secondly, the essence theme was updated to include the fixed z-index: 10;.

However, instead of adding the note-toolbar z-index to the theme, I would add this to the Summernote plugin, so not all themes would require "plugin css" to be changed/added on the themes themselves.

Both the essence theme and Summernote editor have been updated, and an update should be available after logging into your website and checking for updates.

As a token of appreciation for your efforts, we'd love to add you to our list of contributors: https://wondercms.com/contributors, simply send over your name/last name and website (or social media/twitter/linkedin).

Hi! Thank you for appreciating my modest efforts and adding me to your list of contributors. ;) My website address is available in my profile on this forum. In the footer of my website you can also find my Facebook profile address. WonderCMS is one of my favorite cms. I have been following its development for years, waiting for it to become a mature project. This time is slowly approaching. I've already written a few posts on this forum in recent days. I will be glad if one of the creators reads them and answers them.

Thank you for reacting quickly to my proposal to change the Essence Theme and prepare the update! :)

:? After the updates, this is what I get when I try to insert the picture to the SUBSIDE in this theme (below)
This is the completely untouched and fresh installation of entire CMS. :!:

That's what I get for not testing this properly. :)
I have reverted both updates to the Essence theme and the Summernote editor plugin.

When updated, things should go back to "normal".

I'll try to attend to this better when I have more time. Thanks for catching the weird update in less than 24 hours!

WonderCMS has really had an amazing journey since 2008, and it's becoming more feature complete with plugins/themes.
Next release should be pretty exciting with a lot of improvements, including unlimited sub-menus.

Also, you have now been added to our list of contributors: https://www.wondercms.com/contributors

Thanks again for contributing, I'm sure we'll figure this out. To many more years of WonderCMS-ing! :)

OK. ;)

The result is that on the image below. Tested on the two different browsers.
BTW. Thank you for adding me to the contributors list, but my name and surname are bad spelled there. :|

I did some testing. ;) Everything seems to work fine when one change is applied to the original file:

Code: Select all

/themes/essence/css/style.css
by adding the line:

Code: Select all

#adminPanel {z-index: 1051;}
I've found that all modals show at z-index: 1050; I don't know why there is a conflict, so I moved the entire #adminPanel layer to z-index: 1051; I have checked it on two different browsers and the problem with Summernote modals seems to have resolved. My original post was certainly not correct. Please check all of this yourself.
