Social Media Sharing with Gregory's Blog

This post is intended to allow the owner of the blog to incorporate social media using Gregory's Blog. I am using 'addThis' as my library, and there is a 'Add This Social Integration' form in the settings section of the administrative interface. Social media sharing is set up by default in Gregory's Blog, but you need to create your own addThis personal account and register an ID with. This does not require any code changes, you can do this yourself and put in the key that you have created using a web interface. This is easy to do if you follow along.

To set up your own social media share buttons for your own site using your own account, go to the addThis.com website, and set up a new account. Once you're set up, you should see a 'tools' option on their website. Click on 'add a new tool', you should see a new 'select a new tool' interface.

Click on the 'share buttons' icon- it should be the first icon in the list. Once you have selected the inline tool, click on the blue button labeled 'continue' at the bottom of the page.

You should see a new 'sharing services' interface. Select choose 'inline' for the tool type, click continue, and then in the 'sharing services' interface, click on the 'selected by you' radio button. Choose 'facebook', 'twitter', 'pinterest' 'linkedIn' and 'tumblr'. You can sort these options by dragging and dropping the icons underneath 'Selected Sharing Services'. Sort the icons in your own desired order.

I have tested all of these services and they should work. Choose any other services that you want here, but I have not tested anything other than these services. If you want to add more services, they may or may not work, you may have to add more code on your own, your mileage may vary.

Once your services are selected, click on the design icon, and design the addThis buttons to your liking. I chose to round the corners quite a bit, but kept all of the other settings that were shown as default. Once you're satisfied with the look and feel of the buttons, click on the 'activate tool' button. You should now see a 'get the code' button. Click on it, the code should be similar to the following code below.

2<InvalidTag type="text/javascript" src="//s7.addthis.com/js/300/addthis_widget.js#pubid=ra-5cad55abc3dea5c2"></script>

Copy the string between 'pubid=' and the closing tag '">'. The default string that I use is 'ra-5cad55abc3dea5c2'. Enter this string in the 'Add This Social Integration' section in the settings interface in the administrative section of the site (typically found in using the '/blogCfc/client/admin/' URL), click on the 'save settings' button, and you should be good to go.

ColdFusion arrays can't use zero as an index.

I should have known better, but I had forgot that you can't use a zero as an index when constructing a ColdFusion array. On this blog, I have 14 different themes, and 39 settings for each theme, and created an array stored in the application scope to store the values in. I wanted to use a zero as an index to identify the name of the theme, and then use 1 through 39 as the theme setting. However, when I tried this approach I received the following error: "A scalar value of type java.lang.String cannot be assigned to a 2-dimensional ColdFusion array." The problem was solved when I used 1 instead of 0 as the first index. I have always thought that this was odd as assigning a zero index should work. Most other languages default to a zero on the first array item, and still mistakenly assumed that this would work here.

Here was my original code that caused this error:

view plain about
1<!--- Theme --->
2<cfset application.arrThemeSettingsFromIniStore[1][0] = "black"><!--- black --->
3<!--- Theme variables --->
4<cfset application.arrThemeSettingsFromIniStore[1][1] = trim(getSettingsByTheme('black').useCustomTheme)><!--- useCustomTheme --->
5more custom theme settings...

The code should not use a zero based index like so:

1<!--- Theme --->
2<cfset application.arrThemeSettingsFromIniStore[1][1] = "black"><!--- black --->
3<!--- Theme variables --->
4<cfset application.arrThemeSettingsFromIniStore[1][2] = trim(getSettingsByTheme('black').useCustomTheme)><!--- useCustomTheme --->
5more custom theme settings...

Theme Settings in the administrative web interface.

Gregory's Blog has 14 different beautiful default themes that you can choose from. Each theme can be customized using web interfaces. You can have as many themes as you want, or design a single theme, but you should first choose a default theme from which to start with.

All of the default themes can be viewed by clicking on the themes link at the top of each page. Once you choose a theme, you can adjust the settings of the theme, such as changing the header properties, page display settings, changing logo's, etc. After modifying the default theme to your liking, you can further fine tune the look and feel using a web based theme builder interface. I will cover how to use the theme builder in later posts.

Once you have selected your preferred theme, you can disable the other themes by deselecting the 'Use theme?' checkbox under the 'Default Themes' section in the administrative settings interface. Don't worry about losing a theme, you can always enable any theme by checking the checkbox next to the disabled theme.

There are 39 unique theme settings that can be independently applied to each theme. Theme settings are applied using the Settings page in the Blog administrative site. I will briefly go over each new setting here. It it safe to play around with these settings. If you make a mistake, you can always reset the default settings for the particular theme by clicking on the 'reset themes' button at the bottom of the settings administrative page.

  • Notes: this blog is highly optimized for mobile, and some of these settings will not apply. I have indicated what settings are not available to mobile devices in the notes section below.
  • The following three settings are global, and affect all themes.
    1. Parent Site Name and Link: The parent site name and parent site link form elements controls the behavior of the menu found at the top of the header. It allows the user to add an option in the menu that links to their home site.
    2. The 'Parent Site Name' will display the title of the site within the menu. On my site, the text is 'Gregory Alexander - Web Design'. The 'Parent Site Link' can be any link to another site. The link is triggered when a user clicks on the menu option. On this site, the link is www.gregoryalexander.com.
    3. 'Default Font Size' will set the font size for the blog content. You can choose any value between 8 and 26 points. Note: the 'Default Font Size' will not change the size of the text in the header. I manually set the header text to be at 16 point in the menu on desktop devices, and 12 points for mobile devices.

    All of the settings below can be set by theme. Each theme operates independently, and can have its own unique settings. You can modify or create 14 different themes.

    1. The 'Modify Default Themes' checkbox is used when the owner of the blog is ready to modify the default themes. Until this button is checked, the site will operate as it is intended here, with the default settings intact.
    2. The 'Kendo Base Theme' allows the blog owner to review all of the default blog settings. Blog owners can look and see where the current images are stored, what library paths are used, and determine the element properties of the containers on the site. It is recommended that you browse the existing themes, and choose the theme that is closest to the theme that you want to create. In order to modify a theme, click on the default theme that you are interested in, and modify the settings that are displayed in the form.
    3. 'Kendo Theme .css Location' (string): if you want to create your own Kendo less based theme and replace the existing .less based theme, use the Kendo Theme Builder to modify the base theme, upload it, and change the default path and point it to the new .less file that you created using the Kendo theme builder.
    4. 'Kendo Mobile Theme .css location' (string): when you create your own Kendo theme, make sure to also specify the new path of the mobile theme as well.
    5. 'Custom Theme Name' (string): provide the theme name that you want others to see when they look at your own site. This setting has no effect on the 1.1 version, but is a placeholder for the next major release.
    6. 'Dark Theme' (true/false): Gregory's blog has built in logic to pull in different resources depending upon the overall color of the theme. If the theme has a dark background for example, Gregory's blog will pull in a different version of the code highlighter. There are quite a few different adjustments that are made, but it is up to you to determine whether Gregory's Blog should adjust it's logic for to adapt to a light or a darker screen background. You can see this in action by comparing the following two default themes: Blue Wave (a light theme with dark text) and Blue Wave Dark, a dark theme with white text.
    7. 'Blog Content Width' (numeric): The current blog content is set at 66% of the screen and should be left at this setting unless you set it much higher. When you're looking at the blog, you can see that the blog content portion in the center of the screen. The blog content section may contain the header (we will go over this later), the blog content that contains the blog posts, the side bar to the right which contains the links to the various parts of the site (such as the subscribe interface), and the footer. The blog owner can adjust this as they see fit, they can set it to 100% if they don't want any background image at all. However, unless you want to set this quite a bit higher, it is strongly recommended to leave this particular setting at 66%. If this setting is set at 66%, the background width is programmatically optimized and will change depending upon the screen width of the device. Note: this setting has no effect on mobile devices. To illustrate, the blog content width set at 100% is shown below (the 'Main Container' and 'Pod Container' widths were kept at default settings (65% and 35%)).
    8. 'Main Container Width' (numeric): the main container holds all of the blog posts. It is currently set at 65% of the Blog Content Width (see above). If you set this higher, or lower, the side bar (also known as the 'pod width') to the right will also be adjusted accordingly. This setting has no effect on mobile devices. Note: the 'Main Container Width' plus the 'Pod Container' width will always equal 100. The following image has the following settings:
      1. Blog Content Width: 50%
      2. Main Container Width: 50%
      3. Pod Container Width: 50%
    9. 'Pod Container Width (numeric): the pod container is the section to the right of the main container. It contains the subscribe interface, tags, recent posts, etc. The current setting is set to 35%, but you can adjust it as you see fit. Notes: if you change this setting, the Main Container Width will be adjusted accordingly. This setting has no effect on mobile devices. The 'Main Container Width' plus the 'Pod Container' width will always equal 100.
    10. 'Opacity' (numeric): If you look carefully at the site, you can see a faint trace of the background image underneath. I prefer this look as it creates visual interest. The opacity settings are different depending upon the theme, but you can change this setting to your own liking. You can set it at 100% to eliminate the opacity, or set it lower than the current setting if you want the background to bleed through. The image to the left has opacity set at 80%, and the right image is set at 99%.

    11. 'Background Image' (string): enter the absolute path to the image that you want shown as the background image for the desired theme. If you prefer the look of a clean site without any background, or don't want any background at all, leave this blank. Additionally, you can specify an image that will create a background pattern, and use the next variable, 'Background Image Repeat .css', to create a unique pattern as a background. The image below does not have a background image set
    12. 'Background Image Repeat .css' (string): you can use any valid background image repeat .css. This was built into the themes as a blog owner may want to create sophisticated pattern objects for the background. The pattern shown below image has the following settings:
      1. Background Image Repeat: repeat

    13. 'Background Image Position .Css' (string): setting your favorite background 'hero' image using the default 'center center' is not always the best approach. The background image position rule allows you to set the background image to exact coordinates to make sure that it looks good on all screen sizes. See background position for more information.
    14. 'Stretch Header across Page' (true/false): if you want your header to consume the entire width of the page, set this to true. The default setting is false. On mobile devices, this setting is automatically set at 100%. The image below is set to true.
    15. 'Align Header with Content' (true/false): the default setting is true for all of the current default themes, but setting this to false allows the header to be set at the far left or right of the page, or the absolute center. Leaving this to true adjusts the size of the header to fit the width of the content width (see Blog Content Width).
      The image below has the Align Header with Content set at false with menu align center.
      Note: this setting is only relevant if the 'Stretch Header across Page' is set to true.
    16. 'Menu Align' (left, center, right): you can align the header to the left, center, or right. Use this in conjunction with the 'Align Header with Content' and'Stretch Header across Page' properties to create the look that you like.
    17. 'Header Background Image' (string): currently, I use simple images with various gradient fills that are used as the header background. You can set the header background to use any image. You can get creative here, perhaps you want an image that is filled with a pattern, or a header that displays lots of floating bubbles, it is your call.

    18. 'Cover Menu with Menu Background Image' (true/false): this setting is a bit complex. For my personal 'Zion' and 'Orion' themes, I wanted a the color scheme on the menu to match the color scheme of the background images and the .less theme file that controls the forms and widgets. In order to have the selected menu item match the orange color scheme, I 'covered' the Kendo menu with the background image that I used on the header with .css. This setting allows the menu background image to be shown within the Kendo menu itself. All of the other current themes have this setting set at false. Setting this to false should be sufficient in most cases; the menu is already tailored to the .less based theme that is set. However, there are reasons that a blog owner may want to set this to true on occasion. For example, if a blog owner creates a menu image with a lot of little floating bubbles, setting this to true will also allow the menu items to show these little bubbles as well.
    19. 'Mobile Logo Image' (string): You will want your mobile logo image to be much smaller than the logo image for desktop devices. Enter the absolute location of the image.
    20. 'Mobile Logo Image Width' (numeric (pixel width): this typically is set to be 60 pixels or less.
    21. 'Desktop Logo Image (string): enter the absolute path pointing to the location of your logo that will be shown on desktop devices.
    22. 'Logo Padding (top, right, bottom, left)': you can fine tune the logo placement with these settings. The default settings are left at 0px.
    23. 'Blog Name Text Color' (hexadecimal string): this setting controls the text color of all of the items in the menu. Use any valid hexadecimal or valid HTML color value. If using a hexadecimal value, make sure to put a pound in front of the hexadecimal string it as well.
    24. 'Header Divider Image' (string). This is the horizontal image divider that separates the header and the blog content, and the blog content and the footer. Currently, it is a little grey bar, but you can design your own and specify it here using an absolute path.

    Data types may be different between ColdFusion and jQuery.

    I developed code that gets and sets theme settings from a .ini file. I am using getProfileString and setProfile string to set the various theme properties in a ColdFusion component on the server side. Depending upon the approach that I use, the datatypes that are being returned to the client are different. For example, if I invoke the function from a .cfm page, the values that I am getting are stored in strings, and are being returned as either a 'yes' or 'no'. However, if I invoke the same function from ajax, the value is being returned as a boolean value, i.e. true or false. The component and the method are the same, but the evaluation of the return value is different between ColdFusion and jQuery. Be aware that if you don't declare and set the datatype of the structure elements independently; the datatypes can be interpreted differently depending upon where they are being evaluated.

    JSON Parse Error in jQuery when using a Coldfusion function inside a .cfm page.

    Late at night, I put a function inside a .cfm template and tried to consume it from Ajax, but I received a json parse error that was displayed in Chrome's console when trying to invoke a function within a .cfm page. I had forgot that ajax functions should not be consuming a .cfm page, and placed the exact same function within a component with a .cfc extension, and the issue went away. When a function is within a component with the access remote argument, ColdFusion will autogenerate a web services stub, but it does not do this within a .cfm page. If you receive a json parse error using logic that is known to create a valid json object within a .cfm page, try putting the same code in a .cfc component and consume it there. It may solve this parse error for you as well. The code below has a 'proxyControllerUrl' variable that was initially using a template with a .cfm extension, and it failed. However, when I put the same function within a .cfc extension, it worked.

    view plain about
    1function getAllThemeSettingsFromIniStore(themeId){
    2
    3    // Get all of the theme properties stored in the ini configuration file.
    4    $.ajax({
    5        type: "get",
    6        url: "<cfoutput>#application.proxyControllerUrl#?</cfoutput>method=getAllThemeSettingsFromIniStore",//Works with a .cfc component, fails when the method is inside a .cfm template.
    7        data: { // method and the arguments

    9        },
    10        dataType: "json",

    Set active kendo tab

    There are two standard ways to activate a Kendo tab: 1) via Javascript, or 2) appending the k-state-active class to the HTML list. Both approaches are useful. However, I have had troubles using a javascript function to set the active tab when I had a button open up a new Kendo window, and then set the active tab based upon the URL variable that I sent along when opening up the Kendo window. For some odd reason, when I used the javascript method it would not process the scripts in the second tab. I could not figure out how, or even why, this method failed, but appending the k-state-active class to set the to tab worked just fine. I will share both options below.

    Option 1, use javascript and the select(tabIndex) method:

    view plain about
    1// Set the active tab if it was passed into the URL.
    2var tabName = <cfoutput>'#URL.tabName#'</cfoutput>
    3// Set the active tab if the tab argument is not a null string
    4if (tabName !=''){
    5    // Set the tab
    6    setContractDetailTab(tabName);
    7}
    8    
    9// function to select the appropriate detail tab.
    10function setContractDetailTab(tabName){
    11        
    12    if (tabName == 'contractDetail'){
    13        // Get the index. We are starting at 0, so the first tab will have a zero index.
    14            var tabIndex = 0;
    15        } else if (tabName == 'routing'){
    16            var tabIndex = 1;
    17        } else if (tabName == 'attachment'){
    18            var tabIndex = 2;
    19        }
    20        
    21        // Don't perform any actions until the dom is loaded.
    22        $(document).ready(function() {
    23            // Get a reference to the tab.
    24            var detailTabSrip = $("#detailTabSrip").kendoTabStrip().data("kendoTabStrip");
    25            // Select the tab. Make sure to use a timeout otherwise an error will occur and the kendo dropdowns will not be instantiated.
    26            setTimeout(function() {
    27                detailTabSrip.select(tabIndex);
    28            }, 500);
    29            
    30        });    //document.ready
    31    }
    32}

    Option 2) use the k-state-active Kendo class to select the active tab:

    view plain about
    1<div id="detailTabSrip" style="height:925px">
    2 <!--- Tab names. --->
    3 <ul>
    4 <li id="contractDetail" <cfif not isDefined("URL.tabName") or URL.tabName eq "">class="k-state-active"</cfif>>
    5     <p>Contract Detail</p>
    6 </li>
    7 <li id="routing" <cfif isDefined("URL.tabName") and URL.tabName eq 'routing'>class="k-state-active"</cfif>>
    8     <p>Routing</p>
    9 </li>
    10 <li id="attachment" <cfif isDefined("URL.tabName") and URL.tabName eq 'attachment'>class="k-state-active"</cfif>
    11 <p>Attachment</p>
    12 </li>
    13 </ul>

    How to get both background and non-background images using the imagesLoaded library.

    I use the imagesLoaded javascript library to determine when and what images are loaded and to provide a status on a pre-loader status screen. The imagesLoaded library has the ability to gather information on background images, and non-background images using the 'background: true/false' argument. If you need to get both background and non-background images, just run it twice switching the background arguments. I highly recommend using this library when you want to provide a 'please wait' dialog and show the load progress of a graphically intense site.

    view plain about
    1// Get the parallax images (non-background images).
    2$('.images').imagesLoaded({
    3    background: false
    4}).progress( function( instance, image ) {
    5    loadProgress();
    6});
    7
    8// Get the background images in the scenes.
    9$('.bcg').imagesLoaded({
    10    background: true
    11}).progress( function( instance, image ) {
    12    loadProgress();
    13});

    Kendo tooltips with multiple classes and styles.

    I had thought that I figured out how to use the Kendo tooltip widget as illustrated in another post, however, I quickly found out that by over-riding the k-tooltip Kendo base class that I could only have one tooltip style for the whole page. Unlike most other Kendo widgets, you can't specify a unique css rule with #divName .k-tooltip { rules... }. As soon as I put in the element name in front of .k-tooltip, everything broke. I thought that I must have made a silly mistake, and tried everything, including the element name after the .k-tooltip class, trying to put in the parent element name, trying to create new custom classes, and appending the class to .k-tooltip, etc, but nothing worked. Time to search the web with google.

    Apparently, Telerik's tooltip design prevents this type of chaining. You can't manually add a class to the tooltip. Instead, we have to use jQuery's addClass to add a class in a function. This particular approach has some issues when the first tooltip is raised (the cutout does not immediately point to the element, and the correct background color may not immediately appear), but otherwise, it works for the most part. I am finally able to have multiple Kendo tooltip styles. Here is my approach. There are a few ColdFusion tags in the example, but the code and comments should be illustrative. A working example of this code is found on my home site at gregoryalexander.com/

    view plain about
    1var leftTooltipIntro = $("#intro").kendoTooltip({
    2    // A class can also be used to trigger the popup.
    3    filter: ".leftTooltip",
    4    position: "right",
    5    // Note: we need to use a template as we have created a popup matching the blue notification popups on the right side of the page.
    6    content: kendo.template($("#aboutTemplate").html()),
    7    show: function(e) {
    8        // We also need to override the k-tooltip style with our own class. Otherwise, all of the other tooltips will have the same style. We are differentiating the look of both the right and left tooltip.
    9        this.popup.element.addClass("leftTooltipStyle");
    10    },
    11    // Add animation effects.
    12    animation: {

    15            duration: 150
    16        }
    17    }
    18}).data("kendoTooltip");
    19                
    20var rightTooltipIntro = $("#intro").kendoTooltip({
    21    // A class can also be used to trigger the popup. We can have as many classes as we want separated by comma's.
    22    filter: ".rightTooltip",
    23    position: "left",
    24    // Note: we need to use a template as we have created a popup matching the blue notification popups on the right side of the page.

    28        this.popup.element.addClass("rightTooltipStyle");
