I bought the course yesterday and am working my way through it now and I must say it is really well put together. I am learning more than I would in hours of reading books.

Top job Chris!

Hello.

I have been following along with the yii course but i am stuck because the theme supplied does not seem to work.

i have been over and over the code and can not see the problem.

you set up the theme half way through video 3-2 .

i have added the code in to the main.php file
'theme'=>'photoGal',
and copied all the files bt i am having no luck solving the issue.


please help

Hello Ricky,

I've found some info on this post

As stated, what I did to get it working was to copy the main.php layout file to the layout folder of the theme.
Then, I added
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="<?php echo Yii::app()->theme->baseUrl; ?>/css/screen.css" media="screen, projection" />

to reference the theme's screen.css

Chris : how do you get it to work without this hassle ?

Cheers

Another thing I just noticed Chris :
On video 3.3 at 3:27, you add a private variable on line 29 of the photo model.
However, that is in between the PHPdoc and the function for the model function:

class Photo extends CActiveRecord
{
	/**
	 * Returns the static model of the specified AR class.
	 * @param string $className active record class name.
	 * @return Photo the static model class
	 */

	private $_uploads; 

	public static function model($className=__CLASS__)
	{
		return parent::model($className);
	}


I'm sure you'll agree that's not very good practice :)

Cheers
