Allowing certain user groups to change theme?

Postby Potku » 15 May 2012, 09:00

I tried to search for this (and in one topic in phpBB.com it was asked but not answered), but my google-fu is weak...

So, if we have two themes and we would like to offer certain user groups -- but not all -- to choose freely between them, how would we set that up in ACP?

Thanks :)

I was told this would need a MOD (I was afraid of that...). If anyone could tell us who to approach, we would appreciate it :)


Yeah, phpBB.com would be the obvious option, but that site is so busy that a request like that from an unknown person such as myself would probably be buried under the enormous amount of other, possibly more interesting requests :)

We are looking to sport only two styles, and certain groups could then choose between the two. Good to know it could be done :) But who would undertake the task at hand? :D

If anyone could bother to code such a MOD, it would really be a big help to us :)

Dude... Image

Simple to install, seems to work perfectly. Since I am a dummy as far as php goes, I have no idea how much work was required to figure it all out, but I am sincerely grateful for this. This MOD isn't just for fun, it actually serves an important service. Thank you so much, Steve Image

Steve, I hate to bother you, but have you figured out a manageable way to code this for 3.1? :)
