I said nothing about RC1.

But you were very crafty with your words ;)

Very exciting news!
Does SMF2 have:
* WYSIWYG posts?
* Auto-backup plug ins or new core auto-backup that emails the backup to you?
* RC1 themes that also work when it "goes Gold"? Or will themes possibly need a total overhaul when upgrading to Gold? What does upgrading to Gold mean?
* Easier CSS templates or theme modification, more CSS based?
Now I'm suddenly all excited about SMF 2 ... I thought it was going to be light-years away.  ;D
* Please don't PM me for help, I DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ANYWAY!
* Please tick your thread as "resolved" when after you have implemented solutions to your problem

2015: Airlines bankrupt, freight routes collapse, agricultural crisis and the "Greater Depression" begins. Welcome to the end of the oil age!  (We had better leave oil before it leaves us!)

1) WYSIWYG Editor - yes
2) Auto-backups - No? There is always room for a plug-in's. :P
3) Themes from SMF2.0 RC1 will probably need to be updated to work with final.
4) Yes many more things are CSS based.

SMF 2.0 RC1 templates won't probably work with SMF 2.0 Final. They might work, it depends on changes made to templates and CSS.

Thanks for that. Are there less files to modify in the templates?

Is there a way to load a "package" of say 6-10 files into Dreamweaver just for styling purposes? Say a dummy template set up so that it "looks" like SMF 2 and then maybe just 1 or 2 CSS files to edit (with accompanying images to copy across to image folders, etc)?

If it was in Dreamweaver, I might have a hope of understanding how to style. My wife is a professional "blue chip" graphic designer, but we mainly concentrate on print. I'm just beginning to learn CSS and am pretty bad at the "back end" side of things. I find editing XHTML files interspersed with php quite frightening.  :o

If I had just a few CSS files to edit in DW, I might be able to get my head around it all and offer a few clean "designer" themes... but as it is, our design is lightyears ahead of our ability in backend / web stuff. Any ideas?

No there are not less files to modify. :D

You will be able to do a lot with just css though. Loading them would be a matter of selecting the ones you want to load. Standard operating procedure. Why would they need to be in a package?

eclipsenow

To format the CSS in Dreamweaver I'd like the XHTML pages that "set up" the basic "content" of the site for me... otherwise, what's the point of using Dreamweaver? I may as well just write the code in Firefox's firebug or something (which has its limitations as it doesn't show background images in the CSS).

The whole point is that I'm not that comfortable with CSS yet, and can't just "think in code". I need a few content pages that "mimic" the content of the forum so that I can modify the CSS in dreamweaver and see it as I go.

Personally I've never used Dreamweaver anyway. Best way to do this sort of thing is on a local host. Quick. Easy. Immediate results. If it's trashed it can be fixed in no time. Piece of cake. Once I have it pretty much sorted, then it goes online.

Is there one "master-blank" template that has really easy instructions on how to modify the themes? What about youtube tutorials so I can see a "master" at work?

It would be awesome to just have a nice, clean, user-friendly template that had say an easy header plug-in at the very least. If I were running SMF, I'd even have such a thing core.

EG: 3 basic core themes with different but easy WYSIWIG modifying, and plug ins for uploading very specific headers. (EG: The "Professional-basic" header must be 770 pixels wide and can have a height between 70 and 100. Upload HERE) and then the widget uploads it to the right spot, so that even total newbies can do it.

But I'm not a php or programmer guy, so I'm all hot air and ideals, not in the real world I guess. :-\
