Siriux frame for Menalto Gallery

Siriux theme comes standard with Menalto Gallery 2. Its admin UI is… not exactly Matrix, but its end-user experience is the pinnacle of Zen simplicity.

Siriux does not support the Image Frame plug-in, but it has a very simple yet stylish frame of its own.

I took the liberty of extracting it from the theme and productizing it – it is now pluggable into the Image Frame for Gallery2.

Not surprisingly, it looks like this:

Siriux frame in action.

Installation Instructions

There should not be need for any, but this blog is hosted for free by the wonderful folks at wordpress.com (may the Gods of their choice smile at them), and so I cannot upload a zip file (it’s a security restriction).

So, here is what you will do:

  1. Download the attached frameinc.txt file. (Do note that this is a CSS frame, so there is only one file inside, no images. )
  2. Rename frameinc.txt to frame.inc
  3. Go into your Gallery2 installation into the modules/imageframe/frames directory – that’s where all your frames are
  4. Create a new directory – I suggest you call it Siriux after the theme this frame originates from
  5. put frame.inc file into this new directory.

You are DONE! Now Siriux frame should become available in all the themes that support Image Frame module.

Oh, and if you think this can be done better – go for it!
(Just post the results.)

About

I am sorry you have to see this. Actually, I am not – if you came here, it’s you fault. When we choose our actions we also choose the consequences.

Despite my oversized ego I do NOT believe that anyone out there craves a daily dose of my insight. In fact, I am suspicious of people who think otherwise.

This blog is a tool.

I meddle with many complex computer deployments, and as I go through adding features and learning things, I also tend to forget numerous details and the reasoning behind the many choices I have made in the past. This is the place to document my adventures. And to give something back.

If you stumble upon this and find it useful – …good for you.
