Any to give users their own selection of homepage layout?
I'm running 2.1 stable, and the default theme.
Basically the pipe-dream version of what I'm looking for is the ability to give each user the ability to make the selections that the admin can make on the Dashboard/Homepage screen, where we decide whether the site will default to showing Discussions or Categories, and Modern/Table/Mixed layouts.
BUT, barring that, I'd love if I could somehow provide working urls for each option. Something like this:
... which would at least let them make bookmarks to the view they prefer, regardless of what the official setup is.
I suspect this is probably a horrible amount of work - so I guess my question is, how horrible?
Note: I don't really want to change any of the layouts I have - I'm fine with each - I just want a way to generate them (meaning the modern/table/mixed layouts) even when they aren't selected. If each user had their own defaults in this regard, that would just be icing on the cake.
My situation: I'm currently using a layout everyone likes, except for a couple visually- and/or developmentally-impaired users, whose needs push us to use a less-well-liked layout. I'd love to give those users what they need, while still providing the option of the more detailed layout for everyone who wants it.
