Developing a theme - feedback please
I've used vanilla for a few years (thank you devs for your fantastic work and ongoing commitment!) but especially since 2.1 have been frustrated by the lack of available theme add ons, possibly due to the switch from .php to .tpl
As a result I felt it best to do a minor modification of the default theme that could serve as a better starting point for others in my situation.
I plan to remove my company specific images for the released theme, and to put it up on github in the hope that it may eventually be included as the default template for user modification, as even just having the view, custom css and any required images in a default template would make the modification process - at least to the extent of styling- a lot quicker, especially for users who unlike myself aren't professional programmers. Even those with basic HTML/CSS/PHP knowledge may be a little confused by the current setup, it took me a little while to realise that adding google analytics to my .tpl template required surrounding
google analytics script
tags not to produce the 'something went wrong' error
This is where I'm at:
Please let me know any criticisms you have, or similarly confusing modifications you'd like to see aded to this basic template.
