[development] Move multiple theme per site support to contrib
lists at ondemand-network.com
Tue Jun 6 15:59:30 UTC 2006
I like the idea of grouping the theme and block/region admin functions
but having the notion of "enabled" and "default" theme is essential to
us, we use groups on our sites and having the ability for each group to
choose their own theme seems a kicker, people feel that's a space belong
to themselves. If there are other ways to achieve the same result it
will be fine, but we don't want to lose the user specified theme
capabilities -- i.e. make sure the contribute module for multi-theme
support is available at the same time when it disappears from the core.
