Thought I would share a theme as it gets developed
Ok for starters you will need to bear with me. As many things will change as this theme gets developed, I wont be providing a running commentary as I have neither the time or inclination, but feel free to follow the theme as it gets developed. I usually work quickly, so please check back regularly. As things will change no doubt by the hour .. he says cringing.
Ok for functionality sake: this is what we have.
Vanilla Version v=2.1a24.1
No plugins whatsoever installed at this time. The way I work, generically, is to fancify the index page up, no plugins.. zilch. Just customise to how I want it to function and get a brief feel for the look etc
As I create the functionality, I generally then start customising the look, still with no plugins. However I do generally change core files, in my own theme structure.. this is in fact not something Vanilla recommend in the new version of Vanilla, so apologies for the purists.
Ok initially, I have with some help from @peregrine setup the forum, and jquery drag and drop and sort for the discussions. Utilising cookies.
The concept here is to allow each user to move stuff around into specific order they prefer, this isnt for everyone. Its just a concept I am playing with. Seemingly, need to update cookie when new discussion is created as it does not display new discussion until cookie has expired or indeed destroyed. So will work on a fix for that.
If you wish to follow progress , just feel free. http://vanillaskins.com/twentyone/
Not sure where this is heading, free theme or commercial, we will see.
Anyhoo.. thats all for now folks. Click AWESOME to show you are following it lol
New theme is called TwentyOne because it utilises 2.1 v of Vanilla
