What is the common thread between these?

Wed 9 Sep 2009, 08:28 AM

In the past couple of days, there has been some exciting talk about templates.  Yesterday, Peter Presnell wrote Preview: Discussion Template for 8.5.2 which shows some remarkable advances proposed for the IBM Discussion template to advance the already excellent advances on the web side in the XPages template for Domino 8.5.1.  Niklas Heidloff blogged about an intriguing alternative proposal using Composite Application technology in Can a Composite Application look as good?  Cool stuff.  Today, Steve Castledine posted about Customising the DominoBlog template, which mentions future themes but also makes it clear just how much can be done with the current IBM blog template.  Also very cool stuff.

But what is a common thread between these discussions?  What is talked about, and what isn't?  I think I may have a way to work with all three of these templates, and some others as well. No, it doesn't mean altering the templates, because I don't even want to begin to muck with the artistry of the people involved, but with any luck, the collaboration will make them all better.  More on this later today or tomorrow.
