Title: XSL?
Post by: gforeman02 on November 06, 2004, 10:22:29 pm
I decided to customize coppermine to my site's design.  Uh oh... :o

Would it be possible if coppermine could be split into an application layer based on php and a flexible presentation layer based on xml/xsl so users could do whatever they want to with the themes?  I'm lost in the php code trying to modify some of the html elements that aren't contained in the theme files.  I'd be more than happy to assist with this (I have a vested interest in making this happen for my own web site) but feel a little overwhelmed tackling the php code by myself.

This has been suggested before and is currently being discussed on various threads on this board already. The next version of coppermine will be XHTML transitional valid, although some html mark up will still reside in files outside of the themes. A more abstract approach (complete separation of codebase and markup) is being discussed on the dev board for future versions, but will not be in the next version (and is quite hard to accomplish without a complete re-code from scratch). You're welcome to come up with some thoughts on a new theming engine.
