Converting an Artisteer Theme to Yii

Created 5 years ago by bgleeHow-tos3 comments – viewed 25,049 times – ( +9 ) – version 1.1
There are two approaches to converting an Artisteer theme. The first is to simply copy an existing Artisteer – based Yii theme, overlay the CSS and images, then make any necessary tweaks to the layout files. This is undoubtedly the fastest route, but won't teach you as much as doing it from scratch. That's ok. Sometimes getting the job done is the top priority. The second approach is more general and will apply to some extent to other HTML templates that you may want to convert. I'll be covering the first approach in detail, while the second will be more of a general discussion.

Created 3 years ago by seenivasanHow-tos3 comments – viewed 11,388 times – ( +8 / -1 ) – version 1.1
In this wiki, I try to implement a simple authorization schema without putting much logic inside a file or into database table. We are constructing authorization hierarchy inside the controller. We are getting roles for the current user from database table and assigning only roles to user that are declared in the particular controller. We have brought down the work of loading of auth data at main application level to controller level. This way we have pulverised auth data for entire site into smaller units. Finally we are going to look at couple of examples.

Created 5 years ago by Roman SolomatinHow-tos3 comments – viewed 64,264 times – ( +28 / -2 ) – version 1.1
