Is there a somewhat comprehensive guide or tutorial somewhere on theming the PW admin? There's so much untapped potential there I just don't know really where to start to learn my way around it. If not, would anyone care to create one? I know I would greatly appreciate it, as would many more users. There are no admin themes in the modules directory currently that claim to be compatible with 2.5. That would probably change with a solid beginner's guide.
I often thought about the ability to provide an easy way to install themes like in e.g. Wordpress. Reading the docs about template files, an idea came to me, how this might be possible: Use another layer between template, template files und the connection to the fields. The workflow would be: Declare the use of fields in the template file with their type When creating the template in admin, the declared fields are read in and the user could connect it to his own fields ProcessWire must handle the cloning of the reusable fields on runtime Does this sound serious to anyone? Or do you think this is not possible, achievable or desirable? I know it adds kind of a templating language and another level of abstraction, but for the goal of easy templating this may be not a major drawback, thinking of small business websites or blogs. Using this for reusable template themes, would bring a lot more attention from less php-skilled user and help spread ProcessWire in general. Designers could built their themes and an average user could use that to built his own site.
