Selection of skin by user and page

If you have questions about using mojoPortal, you can post them here.

You may want to first review our site administration documentation to see if your question is answered there.

Selection of skin by user and page

I have noticed a couple of things about skin selection.  

I have themes based on my companies divisions.  Lets call them Corp, Div1, Div2.  I have checked both "Allow Users to Choose Skins?" and "Allow Setting Skin for Page?".  There is a specific page I want the Corp skin to show no matter that the end user picks, but when the end user picks something other than "site default", it overrides the page level skin.  Can we make a option to over ride the user pick for a page? (Version 2.3.9.4 MSSQL). 

I have some custom pages that have the pageid on the top, but go back to site default for the skin instead of the selected page skin.

Also, when going to the manage user, under profile, the skin option is not listed.  Its only listed under the My Profile.  I am in the Administrators group.

Oh, and on a skin topic, I was successfully able to convert a WordPress skin to mojoportal.  I think it came out very well.  I hope all that above made sense.  Thank you, Joe, for a great software.

Re: Selection of skin by user and page

Hi,

User specific skins trump page specific skins. My advice would be to not enable user specific skins, they are really of limited use/value and if you want to control how your site appears then they work against you putting that control into the user's hands.

Best,

Joe
