Theme style management (folder structure) should be more intuitive (folder names)

Reported by dleffler | August 13th, 2011 @ 07:04 PM | in 2.0.1 (closed)

By having the different theme styles (variations) in a folder named css_xxx, it implies that only the css files would be there. Recommend it be renamed to style_xxx and the 3 lines in the manage_themes method of the administration controller be changed from 'css' to 'style' this would also be in line with the convention that the 'backup' folder is names 'styles_backup'.

Furthermore, (in the switch_themes method) we should probably check for the existence of, then create the 'styles_backup' folder and 'css' & 'images' folder if they don't exist instead of asking the user to do it.

    We're likely moving to a new concept for theme variations. I've already added a 'theme configuration' extension to the theme manager which can easily be adapted to any theme by extending the theme class and adding a $user_configured=true; property. The theme variables could simply be placed in the theme's config.php file as defines, OR a designer could write something more elaborate to 'configure' that theme.

    • State changed from “new” to “resolved”

    This issue is resolved with the latest code in the develop branch which changes the way theme style variations are handled.
