1.7 theme defined
I understand that @r-a-y @hnla @mercime and @djpaul are working on a 1.7 theming solution. However, if you could explain your thoughts on how this will unfold that would be great. I have viewed your trac ticket and do not seem to be grasping the idea.
As a user of BP & WP, I would think that many other users would like to take variables such as, “ and plugin them in to whatever template chosen. The expectation is that, this is the way 1.7 will work? I know that there was a discussion about the look of the theme for 1.7, however for those of us who don’t want a pre-packaged look, how will 1.7 address these users.
Wordpress addresses this by using includes for headers, sidebars & footers – can BP apply this to activity streams, profiles, groups, friends, etc…?
Defined Classes and IDs for all elements would help designers/developers to create their own personalities on the web & should be sufficient in the way WP themes and variables work.
At this point BP seems like it would be in a mature enough part of its lifecycle to accommodate WP usability.
If someone has time to address this, it would help. If you could please define the expectations of 1.7′s theming capabilities it would be much appreciated.
