directory layout changes
« on: 1 Dec 2020, 06:31:23 am »
I've moved css into it's own /template/templatename/css, but should I move the .template.php files into their own "php" subdirectory as well? Would that be an improvement, or would it make things confusing?

Side note, the admin panel for user creation/deletion/listing is about halfway there.

I like that idea as it would making skinning it easier to?

not a big deal but seems more organized, maybe someday php template files grow!
but surely not confusing

I expect ALL css to be in a single folder. I expect ALL Js to be in a single folder. I expect a templates folder to ONLY have templates and either be in the the public dir or above it. Anything else is a "surprise".
To save time, let's just assume I am never wrong.

Or a “skin”(s) directory for various skin/CSS files?

Yes. Point being logically grouped together.

I prefer a common assets folder with css, js,  svg and imgs sub folders just below root and containing all public accessible files.

All system and application files above the root making it easier to update or revert back to previous  versions.


Root directory only contains an index.php file used to call applications above the root.

Sure. Right now we have CSS files mixed with Php template files in a templates directory and JS in a scripts directory in the templates folder.

Until I’m back on the desktop...

could someone confirm that Jason’s below the root directory structure prevents viewing files within the directory?

Normally I would view source then click on the link to the CSS file which would show the contents.

Edit:
Same for JavaScript and images. The reason why these files can be viewed by Joe Public for SEO purposes.

Edit - back on the desktop:
Most of the files could be viewed except for the favicon.ico

There is no such file, there wasn't from the beginning, the name of the file just written.

@xmohamdx,


./deathshadow/default.ini.php:
   13  [link]
   14  favicon[rel]  = "shortcut icon"
   15: favicon[href] = favicon.ico


The missing favicon.ico is causing the ERROR 404 - Not Found!

Yes, as I said the name of the file (favicon.ico) is just written in the default.ini.php, but the file itself doesn't exist in the directory, I did add my "favicon.ico" to fix.
