umich skin
« on: November 17, 2008, 04:21:17 PM »
While deploying RoundCube at the University of Michigan we developed a new skin. It is a modern, open interface with tools and actions arranged with optimal usability in mind. Light color blocks and borders delineate application areas without drawing too much attention or drawing focus away from the content. (We have changed many of the strings in labels.inc file to reduce the length of some labels.)

The default strings in labels.inc (e.g. program/localization/en_US/labels.inc) are rather long because they are used as tool tips in the default skin. The umich skin displays the strings as part of the buttons.

You should be able to fix this by editing your labels.inc file to use shorter strings for those buttons. For example, use "Reply," "Reply All," "Forward," etc.

Great theme, keep up the good work. But I think there is a bug in the skin with IE7. Other pages are fine except for the mail (inbox)page. Firefox works just fine.

Yann and pcnyla,

It looks like the horizontal divider bar is being placed at the bottom of the screen. You should be able to drag it up to a better position. We saw this problem too, but the divider was placed at the top of the screen (we think that's fixed).

Did this happen randomly? Or after a window resize, or something? If you can provide steps to reproduce the problem, it will help in finding a fix.

firefox told me that the codification would be not correct, because i edited the labels.inc file with the Windows-Editor. Then i tried to edit it with the HTML-Editor Phase 5 and it worked :-). So it was just a noob-question, because i thought i could simply edit it with the Editor.

But there is still one question... :-D.

where are the buttons to ex- or import contacts from / to my addressbook?

greets and thanks for the fast reply,

The problem is if you check Show preview pane, it works fine (with the preview pane). But if the preview pane is unchecked (off), the bottom of the mail page looks like the picture in my previous post http://www.roundcubeforum.net/theme-releases/3850-umich-skin.html. Once again, there is no problem in firefox, only in IE (and I'm using IE7).

We don't use those features in our service, so we didn't include them in the skin, sorry. We may add them in the future.

Thanks for the clarification, Yann. I've replicated the behavior in IE6 as well. This is a bug with IE when the preview pane is off.
