New Templates Today

Post by kprobe on 2013-02-21, 10:42 am

Thank you Telnic Team for the five new templates and larger mobile images. I will update my tools today to support the new templates ASAP. Busy day today so won't be until the evening. Image updates need no changes.
www.AuroraNow.tel looks better with the larger image now on mobile.

It seems that they are not completely new. Rather some amendments were made to the old templates:

http://telnic.org/forum/showpost.php?p=26716&postcount=7

I can confirm that we have now released the additional templates so that they can be utilised using the API commands. We are working on a further update to make these also available to the CTH control panel. The new templates can be briefly described as follows:

a. 9 – Dark on light version of Template 6
b. 10 - Dark on light version of Template 7
c. 11 – Dark on light version of Template 8
d. 12 – Narrow version of Template 8
e. 13 – Narrow dark on light version of Template 8

Where the templates relate to a version of template 8, the title text has also been updated to Arial.

An additional update that was made this week was to the size of the image ads on the smartphone proxy. These have now been increased so that they now have a max size of 300x150.

Please let us know if you have any questions.

With Arial surely it is better.

Not checked it yet on my TELs, but with bigger images it also should be better.

It's very nice to see Telnic continues to improve. In all likelihood pictures and videos can be administrated in the control panel in the future, too.

if i read it correctly, the 5 new templates are mainly the missing part from the december telegraph as mentioned here:
http://www.teltalk.org/t786-today-s-tel-feature-update-from-telnic
These provide further choices of narrow versions of Template 8 as
well as the ability to utilize darker text on a light background and vice
versa.

The pace of improvement is so slow that people have lost interest. It's a joke after 4 years to have so little functionality. Pathetic!

We can be happy about every small improvement, because the full resources are working for Telnames.

NOW I CAN GET REALLY ANGRY - WHY TELNIC KEEPS PRODUCING MORE UNNECESSARY TEMPLATES?
WE NEED ONLY THE TEMPLATE FROM TELNAMES WITH SUBDOMAINS INCLUDED - AS SOON WE HAVE THIS, NOBODY WILL USE THE OLD 13 TEMPLATES EVER AGAIN
WHY THEY WASTE THEIR PRECIOUS TIME? WHAT IS TELNIC THINKING?????????????????????

Until TelNames gets all its features implemented, you should accept these changes gratiously. Sure, a lot more can be done for pro .Tel, but I am happy that changes are being made for us. Not everything we asked for was done in this update, eg requested gradients are missing in T11-13, so maybe we will get those later. We asked for larger images for mobile, and that is really a great accomplishment that has improved many of my mobile views.

One thing that everyone can do is use Commission Junction to sell TelNames locally. I've already sold four in the past two weeks and will have another one sold Monday. The more TelNames we sell, the more likely we can get features in pro .Tel. I've even sold a non profit two .tels: www.BrightIdeas.tel (TN) linking with www.CustomPackaging.tel (Pro) to create a hybrid package. The manager was ecstatic that the TN was done within 10 minutes and still working on the pro site.

The point is we can help make .Tel successful. We pretty well have everything we need. It's time to start selling, even at grassroots level. I've made great headway locally lately through networking at the business level. Here in my town, 8 out of 10 business websites are not mobile-friendly and is providing opportunity to sell TelNames. Provide them with a DIY link and you collect the commission. I start advertising March 1st for DIY Telnames and will see how that goes over the next two months.

Start thinking out of the box to sell TelNames in your community. The opportunities are there.

It's good to see some people like Mark with foresight are still here.
Yes, .tel is improving slowly, but it is improving.
People who have stayed involved for 4 years, really should start begin with developing their projects and should think about long-term returns instead of being disappointed about that the .tel product isn't finished yet.
.tel will be developed much further than most of us can think of right now.
With Telnames you can see what is possible.
I strongly believe Telnames will become a hit, and that will bring others to the plan, too.
There must be only one of the hundreds registrars who understands what is happening and starts imitating the advanced template.
For them it shouldn't be so difficult to realize a Telnames template including sub domains, and suddenly customers will have the choice between many beautiful offers.

Where have you been the last year?
If you would have followed the discussions on this forum, you would know everybody is busy with Telnames at the moment. Not much time for Telnic.
The pro .tel won’t be developed much by Telnic anymore. That will be the task of the registrars who have been lazy the last years.

Great work! I’m thinking about following your advice and doing something useful with my sleeping .tels, too.

After what another member pointed out i'd prefer they fix search first as it wont matter what tel looks like if they can't find the info quick enough, we also should get an optional drop down with record type so its easy to search within results

http://en.softonic.com/ is a simple example if you want to search within "windows","android" you set the drop down box and so should it be the same for us.

Aka by all,phone,address,weburl,ftp aka all the default record sets (mobile/phone combined) with optional custom records and deactivation of specific ones or just deactivate ones if none of those records are used aka if you don't ever post an FTP in any subdomain auto deactivate it from the drop down sub search.

But it's beyond my comprehension why all these so called themes are needed when they can be folded into one by just allowing us to choose colors for text, edge type, edge style, and etc, is it really that hard with 30,000 records? to let us store a #000000 record for the css to read etc.

I try to be as realistic as possible, but Telnic is getting worse and worse.
After producing almost nothing the last years, now they started to produce junk.
We will have 13 templates soon, but:
  • Template 1 and 3 are the same.
  • Template 4 and 5 are the same.
  • Template 6 and 9 are the same.
  • Template 7 and 10 are the same.
  • Template 8, 11, 12 and 13 are the same.

Net we have only 6 templates and a lot of trash.
What is the purpose of these duplicates in addition to confusing users?

Those templates are mostly pairs to allow dark font on light colour, and light font on dark colors.
Some others are derivatives of #8, but didn't quite get the characteristics of what we recommended, one thing missing was use of four colours with gradients. A customizable solution was proposed, as was different templates for different subdomains, none accepted so far.

Why the **** don't Telnic just have ONE TEMPLATE with all the variable elements selectable - so that users can customise to their hearts content ?

Is that too simple a solution ?
