Gantrified is a template for JComments made specifically for sites running RocketThem's Gantry Framework.

Requirements:
  • 1. Joomla version 2.5.x
  • 2. Gantry framework version 4.x
  • 3. JComments version 2.3.0

Installation
The attached file - gantrified_jcomments_template_v2.0b_j25.zip - is a Joomla installer, bu t will only work with Joomla 2.5. Run it as you would any other installer, though Extension Manager: Install.

However, there is one more thing to do manually.

To complete the installation, you'll have to edit the template-options.xml file for the intended Gantry template. You will find this file in the root folder of the template.

1. Open template-options.xml
2. Find </form>. This is the very end of the file.
3. Paste before
Code:
<fieldset name="gantrified" label="GANTRIFIED">
     <fields name="gantrified" type="chain" label="JCOMMENTS_STYLING" description="JCOMMENTS_STYLING_DESC">
        <field name="enabled" type="toggle" default="0" label="ENABLE" />
        <field name="suffixmain" type="text" default="box5" label="MAIN_SUFFIX" class="text-long" />
<field name="suffixalt" type="text" default="" label="ALT_SUFFIX" class="text-long" />
     </fields>
</fieldset>
4. Save template-options.xml

You will now see an additional tab, named "Gantrified", in your Gantry template settings.

Under this tab, there is a feature switch "Enable" and two text fields. The first field, Main Suffix, is used to pick the primary module suffix to be used as a styling preset for JComments. Please refer to the Joomla template documentation for visual reference as well as the syntax. The Alt. Suffix - alternate - is used, if set, to alternate styling for odd and even comments. Alternating styling is activated bu entering a module suffix different to Main Suffix. If left empty, all comments are styled by Main Suffix.

Don't forget to switch from default template to "gentrified" in JComments layout settings.

Have fun.

Current changes:
1. improved utilization of standard bootstrapped images
2. a few fixes for RTL

I installed this because the standard jcomments submit button is messed up with the standard gantry template. This works but the voting buttons are not working, just little boxes with x's in them show up. So I disabled voting and the little square boxes with x's still show up. Does anyone know a fix for this?
Thanks!

This means you can't vote. For whatever reason.
