HAAPAVESI Wizard (Template) released

We have released our new HAAPAVESI template for CityDesk. It supports pixel-precision design and a sliding menu. Tons of design / configuration options and, as always, no HTML or script coding required. Very versatile and the full PDF documentation is available online.

There is more information here:

...and (finally) a preview online:

...and a quick overview (2 page, PDF) here:

Does it require the use of frames?

Yes, this Wizard uses frames.

This week I bought another Telepark Wizard, FORSSA, to get a closer look at it. If you don't mind me saying so: what a clever things! For me it was an advanced course in CityDesk programming. (Sorry if this sounds like a commercial). I think frontends like this is we need, so that fog creek can focus on the internal cms engine.

Nice work Patick. Two questions:

Did you have to do it with frames?

Is there a way to give each page a unique URL so you could bookmark a specific page?

> Did you have to do it with frames?

Good question, hadn't thought about it. The main scrollable frame could be a <div> with an appropriate overflow attribute (i.e. auto). I am not quite sure about the window-centered, fixed-size design...but might be possible too (w/o breaking in common browsers).

Well, each page has a unique URL. The problem usually is to link directly to a specific (main) page and loose the surrounding frames. But there are small scripts out there to enforce presentation with frames, even when linked directly (i.e. "frame keepers") which come in handy.
