The more I work with RavenNuke™ 2.30.00 the better I like it. I like is so well that I built a new theme for my site, integrated phpBB3, and run everything off RavenNuke™ 2.30.00.

I have finally released PMC Customizable Theme (PMCCT) Version 3. It is a theme building utility which I coded entirely in PHP and is aimed at those who can't or don't want to build themes using traditional methods. I have completely changed the way themes are built. As most theme designers have non-production servers installed on their computers, they are able to create graphics and write code or copy and paste snippets of code until the desired effect is created in the theme build. PMCCT uses the same method and because it is written 99% in PHP you will need a server that recognizes PHP4 or PHP5 to be able to use PMCCT. So in that regard nothing has changed in the theme building process.

Here's what has changed. All of the code is written for you and all you have to do is update/change $variables within configuration files. Of course you will need to create your graphics too. I have written a short starter info page and each configuration file has instructions included to help keep you on track. The package comes with sample themes and starter themes you can upload into your RavenNuke themes folder so you can experiment until you get comfortable using PMCCT. Some of you will be able to upload the starter theme and create a theme within just a few minutes depending on your knowledge level. I built the sample themes in 30 minutes each. Go to Papa Mike Creations to see some themes that I built using PMCCT.

One thing alot of you may find useful is having the ability to move the left/right blocks around just by changing 5 settings inside the blocks-config.php file. You can have the standard look of left and right sided blocks or you can have both blocks on the left side or both blocks on the right side and you can also turn either one or both of them off.

PMCCT is free to members and can be downloaded from Papa Mike Creations. Please read the short tutorial first to get you going and if you need additional help then please post in my forums under the PMCCT topic. I highly recommend using a proper text based editor with PMCCT, I find Notepad++ is exceptional and I have a link to it in my tutorial.

PMCCT was designed exclusively for RavenNuke™
