Webpage templates with graphical buttons

Post by helmut » Wed Aug 03, 2005 10:06 pm

I like the webpage creation with the new templates. Again thanks to those who have developed the templates (Olive, ...)!

It would be cool if there were templates with graphical buttons (instead of textual button "Previous | Thumbnails | Next").

Hey, cool I like the templates as well; I'd like to make my own one as I stated here.
But I fear I am not strong enough in JavaScript... any help for me?

I am very very bad in creating graphical buttons. If you create them, it should be very easy (for me) to integrate them into a template. :)

BTW: I posted the skeleton of my JavaScript template here: http://newsgroup.xnview.com/viewtopic.php?p=14522#14522

The webtemplates provided are very good and the results look very nice. Olive has done a very good job, I think. Here's a sample webpage.

Currently, the buttons are still text buttons which is "uncool", especially if your webpages are not in English.

@Pierre: Perhaps a small task for your designer?

I don't know, perhaps not. I've just downloaded the additional WebTemplate addon and found that I had all the templates, already. 21 templates already, without the colour variations it's 7 templates:

_Default - Frame
_Default - Simple
Foo Silver
Simple
Visuddhi - Flash viewer
Visuddhi - Light box
Visuddhi - simple

The template "Visuddhi Lightbox" has graphical buttons and a lot of impressive animation in it. :-o The graphic buttons say "Prev" and "Next", not quite what I want. The template "Visuddhi flash viewer" has buttons, but I want a webpage without Flash.

I would like to have a lightweight, non-animated, non-flash, and non-JavaScript web template like "Simple" with graphical buttons: E.g. arrows for "Previous" and "Next", and a collection of small rectangles for "Thumbnails", for example.

Apart from the template that I currently miss I really think that the templates are very good.

Oh yes, sorry. If we use image as prev/next button, there is a problem if the user want the webpage in french...

I don't quite understand: Graphical buttons with symbols are international - no need to translate them. :?:

Graphical buttons
After a longer time I allow myself to repeat my above request:
Some webpage templates still have texts "Prev", "Next", and "Thumbnails" for navigating. I think it's time to change those webpage templates to graphical buttons. Graphical buttons are easy to understand and have various other advantages over text "buttons".

Tooltips
To make the buttons even clearer, the graphical buttons might have tooltips and the tooltip texts are inserted by XnView depending on the language setting in XnView. Or even better: A special language setting for webpage creation, because you might have a German XnView but might want to generate a webpage with English texts, for example.
