Admintasia Support: Forum Spam is Unrelentless

Posted in Blog, Site News by thomaqui on November 13th, 2012

I have had a few different forums for support and have had to shut down one and then start another because I get so much spam.

I am currently using BuddyPress integrated with Admintasia’s WordPress install and I have a few spam prevention plugins designed to require Captcha for every post and to filter spam posts.

These are definitely not bots now because they are getting through those 2 things.

Does anybody have recommendations for a way to deliver support and prevent spam?

JQuery Issue Solved – Small Update

Posted in Admintasia Releases, Blog by thomaqui on October 1st, 2012

We are releasing a small update to Admintasia 2.3 because of an error one of our users pointed out to us>

There was a text where we didn’t expect it if I we added a call to a javascript.
For example: I want to use the flexigrid, but the way you had it I think was missing an additional script needed to make the data fill in the table.
From the flexigrid site I downloaded the example files and this file seems needed:
<script type=”text/javascript” src=”js/jquery-1.2.3.pack.js”></script>
Don’t know what it does but when it is not present, no data populates the table.
However, when this file is included, it does show the data but some how this file and another one I had make text from top_buttons.php appear.
I have attached a screen grab where you can see how this happens.
I have tried for a day to remove files here and there but it will not work. Maybe the clash is with the js/jquery-1.7.2.js file?? I dont know.
When I tried the flexigrid on a page without your header and the js/jquery-1.2.3.pack.js file, it works fine.

I will be releasing this update with some instructions on how to simply update the files that were changed rather than the entire thing so it doesn’t interfere with your custom code.


New Release Admintasia 2.3

Posted in Admintasia Releases, Blog, Site News by thomaqui on May 28th, 2012

I am very excited to write this post because I am uploading the latest version of Admintasia, version 2.3.  I have updated all of the JQuery libraries and the JQuery code to the latest version.  I have also added 3 great new color schemes: Salmon, Turquoise and BlueSky.  There were some pesky little things that our users pointed out and we fixed them.  Here are some of the things we fixed:

1.  The side bar now will pop out without a refresh in the background.

2. As I mentioned before, I updated all the JQuery to the latest versions

3.  Fixed a bug that was happening in the latest version of Safari:

Theme Options > Page with left sidebar >Change Layout Width (this didn’t work)

4. Added 3 new color styles with some great new colors to spice up the admin theme.

5. I made our modal window a real, modal window so that the menu and other items are no longer functional when in modal mode. I fixed the issue by adding z-index:9999 value into the custom.js modal window part.

6. I found a white <div> that resided below the main layout on the Admintasia datepicker page.

7. Fixed the grey lightness theme so that after hiding sidebar, the page width is no longer extended below 100%.

Please check out the Admintasia demo and give us your feedback in the comments below.



Admintasia 2.3 to Have Great New Color Schemes

Posted in Admintasia Releases, Blog, Site News by thomaqui on March 13th, 2012

In a few weeks, we will be updating Admintasia 2.2 to the 2.3 version. That will include our usual Jquery libraries updates and this time we will be adding some new features. Here is the deal though. I need to know what our Admintasia community would like to see in the new theme. What would make your admin UI lives easier. Please leave a comment to this post or fill out the form to receive our updated versions and put in your comments and suggestions.

For those that have been using Admintasia for a little while now, I would like to know if you have any suggestions for additional features. I will be updating Admintasia very soon and I am taking requests for feature additions and changes.

In the updated theme, we will be including some new color schemes.  I haven’t decided on exactly what those will be and I am certainly open to suggestions so please use our form or the comments and let me know.

Admintasia Updates

Also, I would like to start to showcase websites that are using Admintasia for their backend. Would you like to be included in that showcase and receive a link back to your site? If so, I would need a screen shot of your admin panel using Admintasia or a temporary login/pwd to your backend where you are using our theme.

And finally, do make sure you opt in on our site to receive updates and news about the theme. We just fixed our form.

Admintasia Updates

Admintasia 2.2 is Here

Posted in Admintasia Releases by thomaqui on September 1st, 2011

Finally!   We have updated to JQuery 1.6.2 and have fixed the following issues and added an additional feature.

We fixed the following errors that were reported by an Admintasia user regarding Internet Explorer:

1. Login page – change theme drop down acts funny in all versions of IE (7,8,9)
2. Close sidebar – IE crashes in IE7
3. Edit in place – strange behaviour when change “Edit me” (layout break) in IE7
4. Charts – doesn’t work on IE7 (javascript error on page load: Object doesn’t support this property or method)

A Few More Bugs that We Fixed:
1) Drag and Drop under Layout Options ->  Three Column Layout breaks if a column becomes empty (likely fixed with a non-breaking space)
2) JavaScript DropDown Menu does not work in demo
3) Typo:http://demo.admintasia.com/accordion.php … Says ‘Opens on Mouseover’.  It should say, ‘Opens on Click’
4) jQuery tabs work fine as per the example, unless the tab<div>  is placed within a<form>. In that case, the tabs still work but the tab links that should appear horizontally in the header appear one above the other.

This is because the “form li” rule in ui.forms.css is taking over and changing the tab<li>s back to display:block.

We tried this solution sent to me by a client: in ui.tabs.css, add “clear: none;” to .ui-tabs .ui-tabs-nav li5

5) There was a bug in Chrome on pagination: if you check the tables.php page, the pagination box floats within the actual table, rather than below it. In Firefox this is fine.

Additional Features Added:
1) Close/Hide Button Option on Responses are quite common in alot of UI themes [one up the rest and include persistence functionality; if they click hide it does not reappear on page load.

All of our existing users will get version 2.2 sent to them.  I will set up a page that you can use to get your download.  Check back tomorrow and it should be available.

All new users will get the latest version when they purchase Admintasia.

Posted in Promotions by thomaqui on October 27th, 2010

Only 36 hours left to save $300 on Admintasia Extended Licenses…

Hi, this is the new owner of Admintasia.com (since May, 2010) and I would like to call to your attention the fact that we are now offering Admintasia Extended licenses for only $99 for another .   An Extended license gives you the ability to use our beautiful admin skin in an application that you develop and sell to someone else or in a charge-for-use application such as a membership site.  I know this is nuts because any other time of the year, we get $399 for Admintasia Extended licenses.  However, we would like to help those that are having a bit of a struggle in this sluggish economy.  We are in business for ourselves just like you and we know the blessings and the sacrifices that accompany Internet Entrepreneurship.

We have recently upgraded the Jquery libraries, modules, and widgets to 1.4.3 and fixed a few minor bugs. Demo our ui template, check out Admintasia’s widgets, see our features.

For the next 36 hours only, you can get your Admintasia discount here.

New Release: Admintasia 2.1

Posted in Site News by thomaqui on July 21st, 2010

We are excited to announce a new release of, Admintasia v2, our powerful admin template for content management systems and web applications.   We have been working on updating to the latest version of JQuery and JQuery UI and fixing all of the bugs that we and others have found over the past 9 months since the first release of Admintasia Version 2 in October 2009.

First, we updated the JQuery and JQuery UI to the latest versions.

And then we fixed the bugs. Here are some of the fixes we’ve made:

1. Fixed the File Browser Widget so that it would work properly

2. Fixed the FlexiGrid Widget’s pagination feature

3. Fixed the Sidebar Content Issue – so that the sidebar pushes the rest of the content down when the sidebar is longer than the content

4. Fixed the Table Pager position – it used to float over the tables in some browsers

5. We attempted to make it so Internet Explorer would display the rounded corners but after many frustrating hours of installing a fix, so many other things were breaking that we concluded that IE 8, simply does not support rounded corners for our template. The problem lies with their lack of support for CSS3.  Sorry, we really did try.

I will be contacting everyone that has purchased both Admintasia Regular and Extended Licenses and offering to send at absolutely no charge, Admintasia 2.1.  You can see a live demo as always at http://demo.admintasia.com.  All new licenses of course will be for this new version.

Hello, this is the new owner of Admintasia, Adam OConnor. To celebrate my recent purchase of Admintasia, I would like to offer a $100 savings on the extended license. The extended license gives one the ability to use Admintasia in a web application, CMS, or any backend that is sold to another client.  We originally were going to offer this deal just for June but we had such an overwhelming response, we have decided to extend it through 7/31/2010.   If you plan on using the Admintasia theme in a web application that you either sell to a client or charge for usage, you need the Extended License.  If you simply use the Admintasia theme in your own application that you don’t sell or charge for usage, you need the Regular License.
