Is there a doc about how to make work this theme ?

Logical way would be to say SiteDesign=admin2 but that create a blank site with no theme.

I find it quite funny that in the same message you say that the interface you've shown as an example is good because it is what customers expect and is used by most products, and later on you explain that what you would expect for eZ Publish is an innovative interface.

Actually is not so funny. When a new and refreshed admin interface comes it should have at least one of this two features:

- something fresh and innovative

- a visual enhachment that will make users say "wow!"

This new eZ admin interface doesn't have any of these two features. Yes, it is an improvement, but it doesn't seem as a big one and it's coming a little bit late.

As for the "innovative" part, I'm not talking about inventing brand new things and concepts, but about making innovative solutions for the user needs.

Should we innovate, with the risk that this won't fit what the customers expect, as they expect what they know, or stick to what is known as working ? blunk.gif Emoticon

Regarding administration interfaces, it's far from being a simple debate. Maybe end customers aren't looking for what is in admin2 (and I'll add that it depends on the end customer), but maybe it is what administrators are looking for ? Or developers ? I don't think a distinct admin interface will ever be able to match anybody's needs. That's why we, and most products, encourage a smart integration of a front-end editing interface, as the only interface an editor usually knows about is his website's.
