Summary0003206: Next generation theme (on hold)
DescriptionThis issue will be fleshed out when we have got v11 finished.

We will discuss further updating the default theme, particularly with a very design-orientated developer who is up-to-date with the latest techniques going through and making myriad improvements.

Additionally we may consider an official "amazing" theme that does something along the lines of using Bootstrap, and is designed for professional websites more than communities. A different kind of emphasis on the level of complexity in the theme and the reduction of the amount of functionality expected to be on-screen at once.

I have related various past issues to this issue, much relevant discussion is on those issues, but as it is going to be distant in time from our final implementation, with a lot shifting around until then, I wanted a short and simple issue to be the one that is open.

Ideally we want to have multiple themes available for selection from the Theme Wizard. You'd click a thumbnail of the theme you want and it would be downloaded onto the server and installed from the wizard.

Elementy is an excellent template we can take some inspiration from...

It's Bootstrap-based. We could override page templates in the theme for particular great looking pages, pulling in from many default styles we supply. (Theme-overridable page templates isn't a feature right now, but it could be added easily).

We'd probably extend the Setup Wizard so that if our NG theme was selected it would recreate default pages from the templates automatically.

Assigned to Salman. This issue is pretty out of date, we'll need to discuss. Essentially as things current stand, we want the new default theme to be excellent.

Actually I'm just going to close this, as there's nothing relevant in this issue anymore.
