tutorials for E-107

I have recently installed newest E-107 version 2,15 and "RideBlue theme by veskoto with e107 Bootstrap"

I want to redo my old website in the new place but I see that I don't know how to do it and have many problems. Simple I don't find how to everything edit and would like to read about e-107 construction

Maybe there are some tutorials for this theme or simple for E-107 v2. I can't something to find.
e107 version 2.15

There are no real 'user' friendly tutorials for v2 . Ther are however more technical examples and small tut available at http://e107.org/developer-manual. If needed to help you along for specific things, you may also use PM system and describe your trouble, or the thing you seek to do.. Just because it is v2 it is still quite the same in use as v1, only the 'looks 'are changed (as it uses bootstrap/html5 ) and some position are altered...(some core changes relate to new php and sql calls).

BUT take a look here it is a tutorial also (maybe it is enough to get you started (its a playlist) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4MkzQOILuk8&list=PLWy1FYhpCxSmpeBf4hrbz0M-6NL5Os4Bm

Thank you for link. I am trying with the large pation to view all lessons.

My website was with installed template and some news. At present I don't see any news, only a blank page. Where they dissapeared? And I created a new but I see it only in "Recent post", by clicking nothing is appeared. What I did ?

Although i do not use the theme, it has PRE-installable content (like news posts etc).

These will be auto installed eg news > in news section. 

You can change these items or delete them and create new ones.

It does happen when by theme manager > change theme > question displayed> would you like to override/replace etc... ??  IFF you DO have content already there> then select NO, if it is okay than existing parts will be overwritten..

You guest it, I really tried to change theme and have overwrited it. Now I recovered the examples by changing theme again forward and back. Thank you, but don't close this issue please, - I think, I will have more questions.

I've created khatru2 theme - responsive with bootstrap and updated for v2, and yet with the same look.But I haven't enough data to test it on plugins. It will need more css correction for plugins themself, not only for theme.

If you have the interest, let me know.

Oh, just note. If you forget import demo data while installing theme, you can do it after it by manual import install.xml file from theme folder via Tools/Database/Import.   The same effect but with warnings if something went wrong. So better.

I know that v2 don't have multilinguality. How to organize pages in two languages?

At present I am translating all links and menu to Lithuanian, but I need to have some pages in English as well.

Sorry than you are misinformed. V2 DOES have it. It is basically identical to v1.

If you are familiar with  how v1 did it, So does v2.. (basic by system table copy in language control).

There also is the multi language plugin, that is similar but just somewhat different in use. (interacts more in/with the system. Best for now (easy going as would be familiar) to use the basic method as alike v1.


note: (am busy with a tutorial that does explain somewhat more about language use in v2, but it is a work in progress.. do not know when it is good for sharing (have to make some movies, textual, and of course have to test iff what i write actual functions in the way it is written..., so that is on its way...) and sorry no peeking yet...)

It seems I have read an old information in some of forum about it.
I don't find Lithuanian language file, but on my hard disk I have an old e107_1.0.4_Lithuanian_lt_LT-utf8
Can I it use?
Really I don't remember how to do, because I did my old website 10 years ago. Maybe there are something to read?

Not sure if anyone is busy with a LT v2 language pack (here are the present ones : https://github.com/e107translations ).

Yes it is possible to use the v1 pack but you will see > things not translated; wong translation; LAN"s code instead of text etc.. because v2 is newer, changed upgraded and rearranged.. (and still developed); even in v1 due to nature of these days some textual content might even create errors..

Simple tut : site language (By install > english or LT ?

FIRST backup database !!!!

It depends if from start all runs on 1 of these.. 

normally > install packs >go to admin/language/ ENable multilang tables.

Next Link Tables (referesh page) should appear on left > clcik > list of installed languages

click on the one to use > next select f.e. Pages (2 x V) save ..a copy of the original tables is created.

When switching languages in admin you can access these pages ( each lang should have them now 'identical" ) edit the copied one (from new lang) and rework...,save

Make sure you can switch the site for languages (menu) and test..

This is just a VERY brief explanation.., maybe you get it back once done. (as mentioned ..busy on tutorial, but needs time..)
