we've got the version of livejournal up/running on our test server!!!!
however, this looks nothing like the livejournal.com site....
so, we need to figure out how/what to modify regarding the look/feel of the site...
are there people that we can talk to about this... are there pointers that we can turn to...
our goal is to create a sort of 'yahoo groups' functionality. given that, we'd like to allow users to be able to review msgs/add msgs/post pics/view pics posted by others, when the user is in a given group/community..
has anyone else created this kiind of structure using livejournal? is what we're looking for reasonably doable?
is it possible to look/review the templates used to create the look/feel of the livejournal.com index/default page... this would give us more of an understanding as to how to modify the livejournal app..
or, if someone has similar pages/information that we can look/review, as well as seeing the actual pages being displayed, we'd like to see it.
given that the livejournal app is setup to allow an admin to create their own 'yahoo group' kind of sites. we assume that the app/template system allow different users/types of users to use different templates.
overall site admin
-admin template for managing users creating their own groups/communities
-admin functions for managing the communities/groups
group site admin
-admin template/functions for managing users of the given group/community
-allow individual user to be able to manage their own information....
so, my basic question/guess is that it would be possible to access different templates depending on the user/type of user logging in. any pointers as to how to implement this.
i logged into my site as both a test/system user and didn't see any change to the default template..
is it possible to have a user login and be given a page with one template/set of functions/links, and have another user, be given a different template/set of functions/links...
in other words, can i vary the default template that defferent users would see after they log in...
any thoughts/ideas/comments as to how this would/could be implemented..
