A question for theme designers
I’m working on a plugin that lets group administrators theme their group pages. Two of the methods involve there being custom css themes that the user can choose from.
1. Group themes: These are straight-up themes that work much like WP/BP themes work, and uses the same format for style.css, except that it’s just css and images, no templates. The css links load after everything else, so it inherits from the BP theme.
2. Customise colours: This loads a custom CSS file with 6 colours that are customisable by the user via a GUI colour picker. It also features presets, so you can pick “Huey Blues” from a dropdown and it would plonk those 6 colours in there, which you can then tweak.
I am building it such that it looks for these custom themes inside a sub-directory of the currently active theme, as well as in the plugin directory. So… my question: Are there any theme developers out there who like this idea enough to want to design their own themes with some custom options for groups thrown in to be used by my plugin?
The sample designs I am throwing in can’t possibly work with every theme ever designed, and it’s prolly best to have some designs that are specific to the main theme.
Oh, another thing – Shall I make a Public Profile version of this plugin too?
