Making RavenNuke Responsive and HTML5/W3C Compliant

Integrated Content Scroller

UberGallery For PMC-RN Responsive
I have spotlighted it on the home page and now you can download this modified version designed only for RavenNuke CMS in the downloads area. It does not get any easier, unzip the package, add your images and upload everything to your site as a module. UberGallery will do all the heavy lifting for you.
PMC-RN Responsive Plugin
This is a broad leap forward in the design for RavenNuke CMS. Members can download a free copy in the downloads area. It is the only fully responsive and fully HTML5 version compliant with W3C worldwide standards.
PhpBB 2 Responsive Forums
PHPBB 2 for those using RavenNuke CMS with the PMC-RN Responsive plugin installed is the only version for any form of Nuke that is HTML5 compliant and fully responsive. This was a complete rewrite of the system that drives the themes.
Responsive Themes
Each theme is highly configurable and capable of displaying either 1, 2 or 3 columns. The accordion (off screen) sidebars can be turned off and the standard Nuke Blocks can be moved back to the index page replacing the default left and right sidebars. These are only a couple of the changes that can be made to the themes.


Go to the new folder named "plugin" which is now located in your root directory to build the content for this sidebar (see file LCol.php). See the README.txt file there to learn more. You can add anything PHP, JS, HTML, CSS ,etc.


You will find all Nuke blocks housed in the left and right accordion (off screen) sidebars where you can add additional content above and below them.

Responsive Themes

PMC-RN-Responsive plugin comes with highly customizable themes. Each one is capable of 1, 2 or 3 column configuration. Pick the one you need to meet your goal in web design.

Make your RavenNuke powered site responsive today.

You Will Need RavenNuke CMS Installed To Use The Plugin

Either Version 2.51 (PHP5) or Version 2.52 (PHP7)

RavenNuke CMS is FREE and is a very safe, secure and user friendly Content Management System (CMS) you can use to create and then manage your website.  It's easy to install by following the "How To Install" instructions that come with the package.  But up until now it wasn't compatible with multiple screen resolutions especially mobile devices.

Now it is and you can download and install those files that will make your copy of RavenNuke CMS mobile ready.  And it's a simple process.  Download the package onto your desktop and unzip it then follow the instructions that are included in the .html file.  For questions, comments and/or problems visit my forums.

The plugin contains:  Completely responsive phpBB2 Forums, Downloads, Your Account, Web Links, News, other Modules, Blocks,  Themes, and more all designed to make your RavenNuke site fully mobile ready and HTML5 compliant.


NOTE:  "PMC-RN Responsive" plugin is an ongoing project that I am designing/working on and files will change in the future.  Be sure to check back here to keep up with those changes.  As changes are made I will make notations in the forums.  Become a member and you can join in on the discussion(s).

JSSOR Slider

The biggest thing that always drove me away from content sliders was the setup time. I mean they work great once you do get them up and running.

That is why I took the time to design one that is super easy to get up and running. Download and unpack the .zip file. Then add your images to the img folder. Open slider-config.php and add the image names and any text (with css) to accompany them and build up to 20 individual slides..

Responsive Design Explained


Responsive web design (RWD) is an approach to web design that makes web pages render well on a variety of devices and window or screen sizes. Recent work also considers the viewer proximity as part of the viewing context as an extension for RWD. Content, design and performance are necessary across all devices to ensure usability and satisfaction.

A site designed with RWD adapts the layout to the viewing environment by using fluid, proportion-based grids, flexible images, and CSS3 media queries, an extension of the @media rule, in the following ways:

In stages, rather than absolute units like pixels or points.

Flexible images are also sized in relative units, so as to prevent them from displaying outside their containing element.

Media queries allow the page to use different CSS style rules based on characteristics of the device the site is being displayed on, most commonly the width of the browser.

Responsive web design has become more important as the amount of mobile traffic now accounts for more than half of total internet traffic. Therefore, Google announced Mobilegeddon in 2015, and started to boost the ratings of sites that are mobile friendly if the search was made from a mobile device. Responsive web design is an example of user interface plasticity.

Firefox: The Evolution Of A Brand

Consider the fox. It’s known for being quick, clever, and untamed — attributes easily applied to its mythical cousin, the “Firefox” of browser fame. Well, Firefox has another trait not found in earthly foxes: stretchiness. (Just look how it circumnavigates the globe.) That fabled flexibility now enables Firefox to adapt once again to a changing environment.

Microsoft To-Do integration with Cortana rolls out to everyone

Being a task master has never been easier


Cortana and the Microsoft To-Do productivity app are getting together to help you manage your tasks like a boss.

Microsoft To-Do was previously available for insiders, but now it's officially being integrated with Cortana  for regular users. Thanks to these updates, anyone will be able to summon Cortana to set up reminders – for anything from getting milk to making a call at 6:00pm sharp – and the voice assistant will pin those tasks to Outlook Tasks and Microsoft To-Do.

Web Design

are the fundamental technologies for building Web pages: HTML (html and xhtml) for structure, CSS for style and layout, including WebFonts. Find resources for good Web page design as well as helpful tools.


What is WebFonts? -WebFonts is a technology that enables people to use fonts on demand over the Web without requiring installation in the operating system. W3C has experience in downloadable fonts through HTML, CSS2, and SVG. Until recently, downloadable fonts have not been common on the Web due to the lack of an interoperable font format. The WebFonts effort plans to address that through the creation of an industry-supported, open font format for the Web (called "WOFF").


What is XHTML?
-XHTML is a variant of HTML that uses the syntax of XML, the Extensible Markup Language. XHTML has all the same elements (for paragraphs, etc.) as the HTML variant, but the syntax is slightly different. Because XHTML is an XML application, you can use other XML tools with it (such as XSLT, a language for transforming XML content).

What is CSS?
-CSS is the language for describing the presentation of Web pages, including colors, layout, and fonts. It allows one to adapt the presentation to different types of devices, such as large screens, small screens, or printers. CSS is independent of HTML and can be used with any XML-based markup language. The separation of HTML from CSS makes it easier to maintain sites, share style sheets across pages, and tailor pages to different environments. This is referred to as the separation of structure (or: content) from presentation.
