Lightality is a new Skinning System for b2evolution.
It has under development since November 2005, and i'm really proud of it.
It offers a new system for skinners to offer new features and a easier enviroment to work with, as well as more customization for the users and visitors of the site.
Lightality splits skins into two parts; Layouts and PostSkins:
A Layout is the structure of the page.
A PostSkin is the structure of the posts.
A PostSkin goes inside a Layout.
A Layout and PostSkin can also provide customizations that can be made to it. E.g. Different colouring, display, size, etc.
Lightality has built in support for Avatars, Backgrounds and Comment Restriction settings.
Another part of Lightality that seems to get the most hype are the Panels.
[ Although I am porting Panels accross into a b2evolution Plugin instead so it is not dependent of Lightality. ]
Firstly, Panels are also known as Sidebar Items.
More info on Panels later.
More info after the 22nd of June 2006. (That's when exams finish).
[ After exams i will be able to work on Lightality, and hopefully get it out the door ]
