Hello,

I am planning a website based on Joomla 2.5 and a reponsive/bootstrap based template. I haven't explored Joomla tweaking in depth, but I can find my way around HTML/CSS.

My question is this: is it possible to override the default aiContactSage layout, and make it pure responsive/bootstrap?

Can we do it in a way that won't hack the core and will be compatible with updates?

Thank you!

Hi,

What do you mean by "make it pure responsive/bootstrap" ?
What changes do you need to do ?

If I wanted to make the form bootstrap-based, I would use these guidelines...

twitter.github.com/bootstrap/base-css.html#forms

And also I would wrap it in bootstrap div classes for the responsive layout.

Maybe I'm missing something but that will make almost impossible controlling the layout in different ways using the same HTML tags. I understand it's easier for a developer to use that framework, but somebody that doesn't know a lot of HTML and CSS will have problems controlling the output.
You can use template's output overrides ( docs.joomla.org/Understanding_Output_Overrides ) to create your own form ( you just have to be careful to use the same names for the fields ). So you can have the layout you want. But I don't think I will add that in the extension.

Thank you. That's all I wanted to know: if I can override the output and make it compliant to that specific framework.

By the way, Joomla 3 is based on that Bootstrap framework. When you decide to work on aiContactSafe for J3, aren't you thinking of providing a compliant template? (even as an alternative)

Thanks again

If all the layout is done like that I'll have too. :)
Thanks for the heads up.
