  • I've found the *easiest* way to do a theme is to copy the slashcode theme, rename it's directory, change the THEME file (name and description) and then start changing the templates/htdocs/images files.

    This way, you are assured to have, at the start, all the minimal templates, tasks and scripts needed.

    • How are you picking up on changes to the slash theme then?

      You can't grep a dead tree.
      • diffs, and scanning the output of cvs update :)

        I had originally been creating themes with the unmodified templates symlinked back to ../../slashcode/tempates/templatename.

        But that was before I was using CVS to control everything. Now I just import all the templates, and make a note of the date and go from there.

          The best way IMHO, and the one I use for Slash-Italian, is to keep Slashcode releases in the vendor branch of your local CVS repository, and update the main trunk with your own modifications.

          For example, when slashcode will release 2.2.6, I will download, untar and do a
          cvs import -m 'Rel. 2.2.6' MySlash slashcode REL-2-2-6
          cd MySlash ;cvs update -j REL-2-2-5 -j REL-2-2-6
          (details omitted for brevity)

          It just means (1) "put rel. 2.2.6 in a vendor branch, tagged REL-2-2-6" and (2) "update MySlash with the differences between REL-2-2-5 and REL-2-2-6".

          See Fogel's explanation [red-bean.com], surely better than mine.
