Hi all, is there an easy way to have a certain theme that's installed be timed to activate/ become the default forum theme at a set date/time?

We currently use a timer php in our banner and the idea was to sort make use of it and its function by telling SMF to start using the preferred theme when the time's up.

Any input would be greatly appreciated!

You could do it with a custom scheduled task/cron

Thank you both for your replies.

@Diego Andrés, that sounds interesting. Could tell what I'd need to do or where I'd have to look for an example?
