How to set my news archive as my StartPage ?
In order to set up your current months archive to be your start page, You've had to edit file "data_inc.php" manually. Replace the $startpage variable code with this one :
you shouldn't do this via admin configuration panel, it won't work, do it manually with your "data_inc.php" configuration file. After you're using this variable's, your startpage will be pointed to the current months news archive automatically.
Beware if you're using this kind of tricks, imagine that every time the beginning of new month (1st date), maybe your visitors cannot see your site if you're late to submit a news, coz' there is no file archives for that month, unless you've already post a message at the beginning of the day that mean at time 00.00am. okay........
Themes and Skins
We have include some templates theme and skins to be used in this version. More skins will be available soon for download or just create by your self based on default themes. Remember that you have to create a blank file named as same as your skin folder names and make sure you put that file under directory "templates/themes/".
The Skins Template
This section briefly explains which files are used by the skin, and how you can edit them.
The template skin uses two kind of files:
The CSS file central.css contains extra information about how pages are built up by the default skins and templates. Basically, it comes down to three containers: 1.header & footer looks, 2.body contents looks and 3.navigation link.
To edit the central.css file, you'll need a simple texteditor that does not add extra data, like Notepad (comes with windows),emacs or TextPad. Do not use WordPad, Word, OpenOffice Writer, ... since those add extra markup data.
HTML and CSS
When editing templates, you'll need at least some basic knowledge about HTML and CSS. This section provides some pointers to online tutorials and references:
If you're not understand HTML at all, start learn by now. Its easy scripting language and you can master it before a year, if you learn every day :).
