Crap. One of your last posts and not a further word. Are you OK? Has it triggered armageddon?

Doofus sent us a Quark document and asked if we could make a web site out of it? Hell yes, give me my pills and I'll get right on it. :death:

Joe, just save it as a JPG and be done with it.  :laugh: Easy peasy.

As GREAT as Quark is there is no option to save a Quark page as a JPEG. I guess I could save it as an EPS and then change it to a jpeg but it seems like a lot of trouble just to end up with garbage.

Just Photoshop it and send it to the FTP. Done.  :laugh:

It's nice & clean looking.

I'm testing out this template right now: http://www.bestofjoomla.com/index2.php?option=com_bestoftemplate&task=demo&no_html=1&id=3335

Of course, making all the lovely ladies go away and installing a different slideshow module.


Did you make any progress on this? I have downloaded the theme and have some javascript slide show examples to try to replace the flash. But if you've already done something it would be much easier for me to just get a copy of yours! :laugh:

I am in fact using it and the word today was that "the customer loves it". Of course there's a meeting schedule for me to sit down with the clientele to go over everything, at which point it will be further raped beyond recognition.

But I would love to share it with you.  :laugh: I'll send you a PM link later this week.

Hey gnub,

Clearing the cobwebs from my Joomla hangover this morning...If you haven't already, give JT SlideShow a try as a replacement for that built in Flash header in that template. It is very full featured for a freebie and works great on Joomla 1.5.

Also, I found a couple of Joomla template sites with loads of free templates and some are pretty decent:

and

Thanks. I'll be working on it this afternoon and will send you a linky once I make a bunch of changes. I had decided to dump the free slideshow because it only allows 5 images and our client wants like 500 images.  :laugh: Just joking.

So, does anyone else have customers who upload a 165Mb ZIP full of images, then within that ZIP there's a 135Mb mystery file called Ndkwo3dk or something...which ends up being another ZIP full of the exact same batch of pics?  :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

Love it.

The JT SlideShow I linked to you will allow you to have any amount of images.
