 Project:      Drupal

 Category:     bug reports
 Priority:     critical
 Assigned to:  TDobes
 Reported by:  adrian
 Updated by:   TDobes
 Status:       patch

Yes -- I expected a better solution was coming, but this will keep
things functioning in the meantime.  Since the ETA is so near on the
menu-based approach, I'll leave contrib and the upgrading guide alone
till it lands.

PHPTemplate has been destined to move to core for a while, here is the
patch and the updated version of phptemplate.

As discussed on the mailing list, this includes the phptemplate port of
bluemarine, and moves the link settings to admin/themes/settings.

Here is an updated phptemplate that :

1) uses node_load to retrieve the node, if on a node page.
2) changes the seqid variable to id.
3) removes the readme.txt file
4) does away with the template.php file, and moves the functionality
into phptemplate.engine

The recent commit of phptemplate caused a number of problems for
non-phptemplate themes.  A patch is attached to address these issues. 
Changes include:
* parsing of the primary/secondary links has been moved out of
phptemplate and into theme_get_setting.
* unnecessary and XHTML-invalidating duplicate div#help removed from
themes/bluemarine/page.tpl.php (this is already generated by
* weird generation of the "edit primary/secondary links" messages
removed from bluemarine and placed in theme.inc
* unnecessary changes to themes/bluemarine/style.css rolled back (the
phptemplate bluemarine had an older version of style.css than the one
in core)
* chameleon updated to work with new link scheme (passes links through

Please review and/or apply.

I recommend that the themes/bluemarine/xtemplate.xtmpl file be deleted
in the next CVS commit as well.  I assume it's an accidental leftover. 
Also, please look into the parse error in database/updates.inc.  It
looks like another patch might have been mixed up accidentially.

After this patch lands, I'll update all contrib themes and the theme
upgrade guide.

re: point #1 , that is a better solution.

It's all going to be removed in the next week to be replaced with a
menu system approach, but cool. thnx.
