Admin theme
« on: April 04, 2008, 05:18:01 pm »

Hello all,
I'm new to this forum, so please excuse me if I don't post in the right place.
This is a MOD request for the wonderful sNews. Is there any posibility to have two separate themes, one for the administration panel and one for the site itself? I tried using 2 snews.php , with 2 index.php, using one database, but no results. Can anyone help me?

Anticipated thanks.
(Please excuse my bad English)

Hello and welcome to Snews :)

Admin theming is used/possible in many CMS distributions (drupal has a killer one) but Snews was meant to be lightweight so as you say there is no easy way of achieving this with the core package.

However, there are a lot of modifications that help extend the core package - one of them might be what you are looking for:

Above mod allows you to have different templates based on the URI called - it is a really brilliant mod and should be possible to adapt to your needs (worst case by specifying a template for anything but the admin section, but look at the thread above for more info).
