New Theme for Xoops.org Site!!

Hi everybody, As you know, few dias ago, my theme wins the "xoops theme competition" then, it's time to start the work and create the new theme for xoops.

Things to do...

There are many, many things that must be do... this is a preliminary list:

  1. Integrate a design team. All people with design skills can participate but also those persons with fresh ideas and new concepts (even if they do not knows nothing about design).
  2. Define the sections needs. This point will be usefull to specify which templates must be redesigned from which modules.
  3. Create the theme "directory and files structure". By specifying this we can create a "new standars" to the themes creation and could be usefull for other designers that wish to design new themes for XOOPS (I have several ideas about it).

As I said... this is only a preliminary list, many things left...

You can see the theme demo at http://demo-xoops.redmexico.com.mx/

I wait for your participation...

(Please, forgive my bad english)

Re: New Theme for Xoops.org Site!!

Great news! Hope you had a nice holiday.

I'd like to put my name forward to assist in anyway I can. Though not a designer by trade, I am proficient with photoshop & other graphics apps, and think I have a fair eye for composition and color.

I also run a number of XOOPS based sites, and am happy to add my 2¥ of opinion as regards modules the new x.o might employ.

Thanks for taking the initiative, BitC3RO. Let's get this show on the road!

Re: New Theme for Xoops.org Site!!

I too hope that you had nice vacation! Welcome back!!!

I hope that a lot of XOOPS designers will join this team and will make the new XOOPS Theme a "WOW-theme"

Please be creative with the content setup - what should be on the central Domain, what should go to sub-domains, etc.
Support XOOPS => DONATE
