Just wanted to let the community know that work is progressing on a custom theme plugin for OJS that utilizes Bootstrap. http://twitter.github.com/bootstrap/index.html
The plugin changes the template folder used by Smarty. This means you can create a custom theme for a journal without affecting other journals or the admin interface.
This is still an early alpha release. In the future, this plugin will (hopefully):
- -Utilize the Bootstrap jQuery plugins where possible, in place of the older js plugins (alerts for notifications, etc). Why? To provide a consistent base for further theme development.
-Be used only on hosted journals that set it as the "Journal Theme" in the Look section of journal setup. (Right now, the cache is too 'sticky'.)
-Be feature complete. (All the features of the built-in theme should "just work").
-Simplify the templates used by OJS.
