Free themes for Yii Framework

I stumbled upon a site offering free themes for Yii Framework and – as we at JI Apps are huge fans of Yii – rushed over there to download a few for testing. Those of you who expect WordPress-like themes are bound to be disappointed. The author is just showing you how you can make a theme for your projects, he is not a designer (so he claims), so don’t expect some graphics-heavy themes. That said, I found the site very useful. Using some of his sample themes I can create a couple of versions for a client and easily switch them to show her what it would look like, for...

Here it is: Source code   sudo dpkg-reconfigure nautilus Wait a couple of seconds before you try connecting again. Hope that works for...

How to rename the Home link on your breadcrumbs in Yii Framework

Prerequisites: In order to understand this post you should know what Yii Framework is. You don’t have to know much about it, though – we’ll discuss basic stuff here. It would certainly help if you have a copy installed on your server, so you can test freely as you read. For this tutorial we assume you have downloaded and set up Yii Framework with the default settings and you have used the yiic script to create your application (something like ./yiic webapp ../myapp where myapp is the name of your application). This is the way described in the Yii Framework documentation. In...
