Re: Is there a market for 'premium' themes?

Please, can you explain to a profane what is the problem to adding and import/export feature?

Here’s a nice primer by Bert. Highlights a few of the challenges Txp faces since its original design choices have hampered advancement in this field.

It’s not insurmountable. Maybe just the ability to namespace Pages, Forms, Stylesheets and plugins into a “collection” would be all it takes and then allowing one such collection to be made live. I don’t know offhand. Been a looooooong time since I looked at this side of things.


The smd plugin menagerie — for when you need one more gribble of power from Textpattern. Bleeding-edge code available on GitHub.

The problem has always been the core team’s reluctance to provide a mechanism for the import and export of themes, either via core code changes or the adoption of a sanctioned plugin. The conclusion I’ve come up with after many years of fighting for themes, is that the core team is getting nudged under the table to deliberately keep Textpattern from gaining theming capabilities.

Hey Bert,

good to hear from you!!!

Hi Yiannis,

It felt good to post on this forum again, been away for far too long – Last visit: 2011-09-09 20:53:57.

Though I haven’t posted here in years, I’ve continued to follow the Textpattern community via the Textpattern Planet site, which I’ve kept up to date.

I’m still running Textpattern on all my dynamic sites, even though it’s a tweaked version of Textpattern 4.4.1, with fixes here and there as my PHP versions were updated and errors surfaced.

In the coming days I’ll begin testing Textpattern 4.5.7 on my local server, come into the fold as you will. So I’ll probably be posting here with questions about the upgrade.

Glad to be back.

Whatever questions you may have. The community is still here and as helpful as ever.

Bert’s sarcastic reply has produced unexpected results! :)

The core team would be human? :)
