FriendsLight theme updated for Drupal 4.6

Michael Geary | Sat, 2005-05-14 18:46

The previous version of the FriendsLight theme works with Drupal 4.5.2 but not with Drupal 4.6.0. Here’s an updated version for 4.6.0 (only—use the previous version for 4.5.2).

See this discussion for information about the code change in this version.

Update 1: There were several bugs in the previous version. It basically was not usable at all on 4.6. I merged in the code changes from the friendselectric theme to fix the problems with 4.6. The link above is to the fixed version. Sorry about that!

Update 2: The new version attached to this post fixes the ?q= bug noted in the comments.

I popped in the latest version of the theme on my (4.6) site for testing, and for some reason the navigation menu is drawing as escaped HTML. It makes hierarchial menus un-touchable, and administration a bit of a trick. I’m in the process of searching for incompatabilities with other modules (the ‘menu’ module perhaps?) that might be causing the problem. Is this a known defect?

I’m also having this problem on my website using drupal 4.6.1.

I love your theme, but I found bug. When I press “read more” link below article, I get Page not found message. But when I click article’s headline, I can see whole article. So I noticed, that when I move mouse over the “read more” link, there is shown /q=?q=node/17 - this is incorrect, there should be /q=node/17, like in headline.

Could this be corrected?

Thanks in advance

Glad you like the theme, and sorry about that mixup on the URL. I’ll see what is going on and fix it. I think I only tested with “clean” URLs, not with the ?q=node type URLs. Should be easy enough to fix. (May not get to it till the weekend, so hang in there…)

See the new version attached to the post. My sincere apology for not fixing this sooner!

Great theme!

I am also seeing the same problem w/ the “read more” link. Looks like q=index.php is double posted. I did read that you were looking into it. Thanks for the great theme and your effort to fix this issue.
