Wow you have made a lot of progress! Its looking pretty good!
Unfortunately that's not a long-term solution for styling, when you have time let's get that at least going on your local machine.
What kind of system do you use? Can you install gem, ruby and compass? If you can get those installed I can give you the files to make it work, but I need a couple weeks as I am out of the country.
I did find a slightly older folder which still works to have compass watch it and make the css after changes, at the time I didn't know how to provide it because its quite a few files. But I could provide the essentials in a couple weeks when I have access to it.
I also need to recover my files, things always happen at the worst time haha. But i do think I can do that.
Let me know where you are having trouble.
I went through all of that a couple of times. Then I made a mashup of Donald Atkinson's RO.IDEs and YJ Tso's CssSweet, and do it all in resources in a context. TVs or ClientConfig settings for the variables, and CssSweet to compile it all, minify it, and write it to the .css file.
Ace gives me line numbers and syntax highlighting, and I can use as many resources as I like, nesting them as deep as I like. One directive per resource, or a whole section, such as the footer, in one resource.
No installing all kinds of stuff, figuring out their dependencies, no extra processes to go through. Just MODX goodness all the way.
It's really more of a concept, a different way of using resources. I'll be presenting it in detail at the MODX weekend in the Netherlands next month, as part of a presentation on how to make things easier for yourself by making use of existing concepts and extras to simplify and speed up the process of building sites.
Wow so cool! I will definitely be looking into this!
Yeah css rocks, I am so glad I learned it. Not sure how I feel about sass though haha, although I must admit that if you know css already, sass isn't too hard to deal with. There are a few differences in the code of course, but its not too far off. But I didn't even really try to learn it, I just edited the docs for colors almost exclusively.
Its good that you have learned so much, the first curve is always the hardest.
Let me know how things are going!
