Doing something awesome with MetaTemplate? Write about it here.

I'm doing a presentation at Joomla & Beyond 2011, about MetaTemplate and rule engines.

If you're doing something unique with MetaTemplate, I'd love to feature your site in my presentation!

Even if it's not something unique, but MetaTemplate has simply allowed you to do something that was otherwise impossible, then please let me know.

The conference starts on the 6th May 2011, so I'd love to hear from you as soon as possible.

If you can help out or offer your site, can you reply to this post with some info about your site and how MetaTemplate has helped? If I like the sound of it I'll write back to discuss any further details.

Thanks everyone! I hope to see some of you at Joomla and Beyond.

Best regards,
Stephen

Re: Doing something awesome with MetaTemplate? Write about it here.

Hi Stephen,

I built http://www.thesmilelounge.org.uk/ with a combo of metamod and metatemplate.

If you click on the 'practitioners' link (right of the main menu) you'll see the site changes from red to blue.

I set up some rules to change certain pages such as the login page, log out page and certain sections of the site to go blue.

The only way I could have done this previously is with two separate sites. But then I couldn't had logged in across the sites and shared common assets.

Metamod played a big part in having the right modules to go with the right template too. So they really compliment each other.

the website won an award for best dental website and best dental practitioners website in 2010

i'll create you a log in account if you desire.

Hi Ty - nice to hear from you, and thanks for suggesting the site. Well done on the award too!

You've got my e-mail address… could you possibly send me an admin account for me to have a quick look around?

Thanks so much,
Stephen

Re: Doing something awesome with MetaTemplate? Write about it here.

Hi Stephen,

Saw you posted on twitter that your fb App was broken.

Here's how I'm using MetaTemplate Pro with your assistance. 

Redirect a subdomain to show a different template.  That subdomain is used as an fB application.  If accessed outside of facebook it's redirected back to the main domain for googlebots and stalkers.  :-)

Along with help from another developer I am also rerouting likes and comments back to the main site instead of this subdirectory.

Still a few css things to clean up but you can see working examples here:

Normal Joomla Site:  http://www.engageyourdivers.com/
Facebook Page:  http://www.facebook.com/engageyourdivers

Cheers,

Rich

Re: Doing something awesome with MetaTemplate? Write about it here.

If page run in a tabbed

Code:


-POST-Array
(
    [signed_request] => xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
)

-GET-Array
(
)
-REQUEST-Array
(
    [signed_request] => xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
)

In a canvas

Code:


-POST-Array
(
)
-GET-Array
(
    [signed_request] => xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
)
-REQUEST-Array
(
    [signed_request] => xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
)

You must decode signed_request see [url]http://developers.facebook.com/docs/authentication/signed_request/[/url]

Re: Doing something awesome with MetaTemplate? Write about it here.

To detect the first page when embedded in a Facebook page:

if (@$_POST['fb_sig_api_key'] == 'db6142265b8595xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx') return true;

Because only the first page gets given this POST variable, you then need to set a session variable or permanent cookie in the SUCCEED action, and detect that in another rule.

So in the SUCCEED action for this rule, and for the rule where you detect the session variable, you would set the relevant template.
