-1 for importing content, sorry. Or do it separately from themes.

I’m fine with this! It’s a minefield.

Definitely! Like you, I suspect, I have various ideas in the “when I get some time” drawer and that would be a good way of pushing things forwards.

Amazing! How does November 1st sound as an ‘official’ kick off?

Many (about twelve) years ago, I discovered Textplates and downloaded a few pre-made templates for my Textpattern sites. I wasn’t quite smart enough to figure out how to make and maintain my own templates back then, and mostly I hacked existing stuff to work to my needs.

i remember all so many years ago how i was able to get started by downloading a theme from that site!

“Thank you for downloading “Profilo”, a template for Textplates (a Textpattern template competition).”

I am interested in this subject. Maybe its because I was away from Txp for a while but, it seems that some resources got a bit fragmented. I am using the templates listed here to get me started on the responsiveness:

Re: Who's interested in making a Textpattern theme over the coming months?

Sorry to be so pedantic.

As i understand it Themes are used via importing them after installing TxP via the Admin panel.
I assume that Themes can be applied interchangeably. I.E. if i use ThemeOne and apply all my content to various sections etc., and I then choose to use ThemeTwo and switch to that theme that all my content is automatically incorporated into the new theme. And if I then imported ThemeThree and ThemeFour i could in effect have a new look to my content on a “quarterly” basis. So that if i had a script that could automagically switch themes being used based on the dates of the four seasons, i could have “seasonal” look to my site. I create content ONCE and then i can switch themes on the fly. Another way of saying this is that we can “skin” our content via switching Themes. Is this correct?

But if I want to use something other than the default TxP installation I would use a Template from this Themes_site …. But this latter site i think should more correctly be called TxpTemplate.com site?

And finally i note that if i use one of the bootstarp “templates from txpthemes.com and populate it with my own content my TxP Admin Panel states that i am using the “Default Theme”. The theme is the default one. But my site is using a Different Template. And importing a new Theme wil lnot allow me to change the look on my site via a simple switch of the theme…. as i understand things.

Apologies for this out load wonderings but i am just trying to grasp Themes and Templates and when we should use them.

Re: Who's interested in making a Textpattern theme over the coming months?

Bici, I think you need to follow the conversation at the link I gave. In short, there are different possible roads to the doghouse, but nothing is fool-proof. ;)

Also, I don’t think that’s the themes site under development. So, no. Though I would like to know, too, what the actual URL will be.

themes.textpattern.com and plugins.textpattern.com will be the domain names when I eventually build out those sites. I’ve made some progress on the plugins one, but not overly happy with the GitHub integration so far (too brittle and can break easily).
