Hi Alexander!

Hi Christoph,

Yes, I thought it would be nice to have the official LibreOffice version 
online and one version which will simply be created by removing the 
branding each time the original template gets updated.
I edited the conference template:

Ah, now I get it. I did it a bit differently - I kept all the branding
elements like the motif etc. and replaced the Paris logo with the
LibreOffice logo. So it looks very similar, but (hopefully) helps to
spread the word. Please see ... below.

Since I don't want to add another file to the Wiki (there are enough
outdated templates), I CC our test-list that still features our nice
LibO Attachment Service. Consequently, the mail (and the attachment)
should be available there for download ... and it helps testing the
service ;-)

Here are the archives:

After having a trial-and-error approach like last time this time editing 
the master pages was a lot easier :) , still I wondered how to include a 
placeholder for images. And the text line at the bottom doesn't adapt 
when I change the title of the slideshow., what do I need to do?

There is no (simple) placeholder for images - you can only set the
"bounding box" for the elements that get added via the "Layout"
selection. If the user choses a layout with two pictures, the bounding
box gets filled with two placeholders.

Concerning the footnote - I omitted the one from the document
properties, since there is a native (but weird) function for it. For
example, users might want to have some kind of section handling
(heading), then the document properties don't work.
Hint: The description how to use the footers is on slide 2 in the
LibOConf presentation (or slide 3 in your adaption), since I've added it
for the presentation authors.

By the way, does anybody know how long to wait if I request approval for
the "project" in the Template Center? I've clicked on it yesterday, but
still no approval ... thus no chance to upload anything. Maybe I did it
wrong, but I was also unable to locate documentation for that.

Hi Christoph,

nice to to see you 'back' :).
Hehe, thanks :-)

It just came to my mind that I joined this mailing list some time ago to
ask for a template repository and and whether you could upload your
template for the LibreOffice Conference.
As the extension/template-center is now online I wondered whether you
could upload those three templates (if Kevin agrees regarding his
Oh, this is a most excellent idea ... I totally missed that opportunity
until now :-) However, I propose to have a slightly different
procedure ... e.g. the template by Kevin is rather a presentation (the
master pages are not used, or still contain other objects).

Thus, concerning the conference template (Paris 2011), I'd like keep
only one - to make it easy for the presenters to pick the right one.
But, of course, there are other conferences and opportunities [1] to
spread the word for LibO, so I've made a "neutral" template (exchanging
the Paris logo with the LibreOffice community logo, adapting meta-data
and documentation).

So, both the LibreOffice Conference 2011 Presentation Template and the
LibreOffice Community Template are ready to be uploaded ... currently
I'm trying to trial-and-error the Template Repository. I hope to have
some first "review result" as soon as possible to upload the first

Do you think the branding should be removed beforehand? Or should maybe
both - the branded and the unbranded Version be uploaded?
I could remove the motif etc. if you don't mind.
Mmh, if we still talk about templates for the LibreOffice community,
then the (community, non-TDF) logo and the motif are visual items agreed
upon. If your adaptations aim for a more general use ... sure ... then I
think its essential to remove them. So, please go ahead ...
