Is there a way to switch themes in 0.9.3?

edited December 2005 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Obviously the minivanili theme is not working, but if I want to make my own theme templates, is there a way to switch to them? I'd be willing to edit a text file, or database entry to do it.

    The first thing to do would be to make a duplicate of the /themes/vanilla folder and rename it to something like /themes/your_theme.

    Then open up your conf/settings.php file and add these lines:

    $Configuration["THEME_PATH"] = "themes/your_theme/"; $Configuration["DEFAULT_STYLE"] = "./themes/your_theme/styles/default/";

    Keep in mind that once you start to alter your xhtml around, you will also need to update your authenticated account's style setting so that it doesn't keep looking to the default vanilla style. Go into your account's style management page and apply your custom style url of: ./themes/your_theme/styles/default/

    Eventually I'll have to write an extension to handle changing themes and such, but I'm planning on either having someone else do it (*please gawd*) or waiting until after 0.9.3 is actually released.
