Thanks. I do understand theme customization is heavily dependent on our becoming more familiar with the Zend3 framework and how it handles views, but additional documentation would be great. Not least for those of us trying to come (at least somewhat more) up-to- speed in terms of of our understanding of what it takes to work with themes. We may not all be full-time programmers (I’m not) but I find it helpful to have more to say than ‘it’s complicated’ when trying to convey what may be involved (resources needed, etc.) with managers or those in our development team who are more skilled at working with PHP but may not be familiar with the framework.
I’d also like to broach the idea of what would it take for some us to join forces – how so, I’m not exactly sure (collaboration is not easy!) – to encourage development of more Omeka-S themes for general distribution? As mentioned, the Big Picture theme for more visually-oriented collections is of great interest and I would be curious to see if it’s possible to come up with a plan for bringing a theme of this kind to Omeka S? Perhaps something close already exists that could serve as a starting point for a more generalizable version., which could be among the things we talk about.
