Just wanted some plate to tell people how is going.
1 - Fresh installation on Xampp with PHP 5.2.1 and MySQL 5.0.33 worked fine on the first try (good)
2 - Main and User menu are still into tables. I uploaded a modified version of these templates in Sourceforge:http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index. ... oup_id=205633&atid=994428
Wich also remove the "edit account" link, as I think is not required. As you can go edit account form from the "my account" menu, a "my account" link should be enough in user menu. Simpler, smaller, cleaner.
3 - Theme iTheme looks pretty good.
4 - Importing CSS into other CSS files means another HTTP request,. If we split too much, we'll start losing speed.
Perhaps we should think of a "Smarty way" of merging all styles in a single file to accelerate css file loading. Perhaps a Smarty file full of includes, so everything is merged in the server, not in the browser.
