Status Update #10

Reading Time: < 1 minutes

The last couple days I’ve been working on releasing the two Core variation styles that I mentioned in the last status update. So far I’ve designed a custom landing page that will live outside of the regular flow of the Elevenfour main page. That means: You won’t be able to see that if you didn’t know about it.

I’ve also experimented with GitHub – from what I can tell you now, you will also find the two styles on GitHub. I guess I’ll also release them to so people who use WoltLab Cloud will also be able to install the packages – not that this would be necessary but it takes away some of the hassle with manually importing styles. That’s something that you wouldn’t want to do as a WoltLab Cloud customer – at least in my mind.

My First Apple Script

Let me begin by saying this: I was today years old when I learned that Apple Script is a thing – and it’s easy to use.

So what did I do? Well, I needed a way to batch export images to the webp format with Pixelmator. And after some querying the web using the Lord of Hell for web searches (aka Google) I found something like this – I had to modify it to fit my needs:

Status-Update #8 – Project Titan

Reading Time: < 1 minutes

After updating to WoltLab Suite 5.4 I had to change plans a little bit since the current style began to show its age. I would have had to make too many changes to templates. So I figured it would more sense to push the development of the new style since I’m already working on it. That does mean, that this project will split in two parts, at least. Part 1 will be the new design and part 2 will be the removal of Fireball CMS and replacement with my own work (most likely).

Status Update #7 – WoltLab Suite 5.4 Styles

Reading Time: < 1 minutes

Compatibility testing of Elevenfour’s styles for WoltLab Suite 5.4 RC 2 finished today. Some styles didn’t need changes, others received minor changes to their templates. So far everything has been exported and packages are packed. As soon as WoltLab releases the final version of WoltLab Suite 5.4 I’ll test the installation and upgrade process. If that was successfull I’ll release the updated styles.

Status Update #6 – Project Titan

After a few days work the future article section has been redesigned. And I’m happy with how it worked out. (As always that’s what it is for now 😂)

Want another tiny preview image? Well, I guess, I can do that.

Plano – A New Style For WoltLab Suite

Reading Time: < 1 minutes

Yesterday I began working on a new style for WoltLab Suite 5.2 that will be released some time later. Plano will be yet another style that features style options although that’s not yet finally decided. At this very moment I can only show you a screenshot of the board list (which is the landing page of the forum) since that’s the only thing that’s nearly finished.

The Theme That Used To Be Gwendolyn

Reading Time: 4 minutes

It’s been almost a year since I last published an article here so I thought it might be interesting to share an insights on a new part of Elevenfour which I’ve developed during the last months. We‘ll take a look at the first WordPress theme I created for Elevenfour and we‘ll also have a look at future WordPress theme development by Elevenfour.
But first of all as the title of this article already indicated: The Gwendolyn theme has a new name – it‘s now called Photogram.
