Changing to v3.2 layouts

The v3.2 layouts are based upon HTML 《div》 elements and the more recent CSS capabilities so that they are 'responsive'.  That is they automatically change and re-organise with the size of the device being used. The older v2.5 layouts are based upon the use of HTML 《table》elements.

Switching from the v2.5 to the v3.2 layouts is in general just a case of setting the corresponding v3.2 version as the active one.

The only 'challenging' change is the subcategory layout as noted below in the comparison between  the two types and detailed in an appendix..

The newer 《div》 based 3.2 versions are of course based on the older 《Table》 based versions in general layout and information content.

In the first set of images below the lefthand column shows the v3.2 version and, where it exists, the corresponding  older version.  The images are taken fom viewing on a small modern phone such as the Apple i5.  The final set of images are the v3.2 layouts as shown on a PC.

 Standard Categories Layout for paginated Subcategories

  Whilst not strictly a separate class it is helpful the treat the paginated sub categories separately.

Firstly these types are never activated, rather they are automatically selected by the jDownloads. 

There should only be one  'actionionable'  subcategory layout. How this is achieved is detailed in the Appendix to these notes.
