http://jqueryui.com/download/ Bottom left corner, there is a box for CSS scope. Use this to limit style to a particular section of the page

Works nice!

Problem was still when using the jQuery Datepicker on an input field, since that script is rendered outside the scope – but that could be fixed with this:

jQuery("#ui-datepicker-div").wrap('<div class="your-css-scope" />');

Images and photos you see used in a template are almost never included in the actual template itself, also because of copyrights.

They’re used to present the template on how it could look like with some content in it but the actual template file is filled with empty placeholders.

Maybe that’s also the case with the product mockup..

You’re right, that are the only options.

To bad you can’t create a custom dashboard which you can set custom widgets for – would be great…

I’ve created a custom admin page – no custom post type.

Inside this admin page i have 2 columns for metaboxes just like on a post page, which you can switch on and off and set to 1 or 2 columns – but it’s a separate empty page not related to any page/post/posttype.

I wondered if there’s a way to get it like for example the dashboard page, which can go up to 4 columns with widgets/metaboxes

Is it possible to create an custom admin page which has more than the standard 2 column layout – but for example has 4 columns, like the dashboard on a large viewport?

There are no ‘how to use an admin dashboard’ tutorials that i know of.

If you are familiar with HTML templates, than you know everything there is. Because that’s just what admin templates are: HTML templates for an admin screen or whatever you want to use them for – it are just the styled templates that you use to create the CMS out of.

There’s no predefined way on how to use them or where to use them. Backend programming you have to do by yourself with PHP and/or whatever else you need.

If you don’t know how to program a backend for youself, or use for example WordPress admin functions/hooks/filters – then i’m afraid the story ends with that.

Why do you want a Admin template if you don’t know what you’re going to do with it?

Anyway: Admin templates are mostly HTML templates with some Javascript/Jquery functionality. How and where you use them is entirely up to you. They’re not ‘themes’ which you can install inside a CMS or something, you have to program them to use for whatever you need.

Thanks – but unfortunately i see it still messes up for example the Insert/edit link UI box from the WP Editor.

Guess this needs to be ‘fixed’ in future WP updates to get it completely compatible

I’m wondering what’s the best approach to for example style a jquery UI datepicker inside an admin screen.

WordPress includes the needed JS files, but not the styles. Now when i just insert a jQuery UI theme some things get messed up because WordPress does seems to load ( very little ) jQuery UI styling.

What would be a good method for loading a jQuery UI style without interfering each other?
