Hi all,

Our first weekly chat went well, but I think we'd benefit from more of an agenda next week.

So I'll start off with a few things I think worth talking about:
  1. Theme options. Following on from discussing on week 1, produce more concrete ideas about what exact inbuilt theme options Composr should have. The intention is to obviate the need for the majority of the users to need to override any CSS files or templates, hence simplifying themeing and maintenance (upgrading).
  2. Technical questions. People often have in-depth questions I can't directly reply on due to lack of time. But within this weekly 2 hour window I am happy to answer almost anything that can fit within time restraints and is of some interest to others. We did this a bit in week 1, with coding up some custom blocks, amongst other things – and I'd like to do more. It's even a great opportunity to get some free coding done, within reason.

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

I've just overhauled the tracker issues relating to themeing in v11.
There's an absolute tonne of information for people to look over if interested, and ripe for discussion in week 2.
0003362: Themeing improvements in v11 (holder issue) - Composr CMS feature tracker
