Template Images ... working.

See the image there from last post? It matches the color of the text.

An S2 layout or theme layer just needs to define a property:

property string home_image { noui = 1; }
set home_image = "|50|50|fgcolor|fgcolor|fgcolor|fgcolor";

And then in its code:

var Picture home;
$home = palimg_create($*home_image);

Note that the first argument in a paletted image spec can be either a URL (to your own pic, or to a remote picpix server), or a named system entity.

I have discussed named entities yet.... in a nutshell: users will be able to define URLs for any object... picture page, photo, gallery, etc..

When you run, resources which redistributed layers use will be put in the database for user system, given a upicid, and have the unique resource name mapped to that... then the layers only refer to the resource name.... webserver cache mappings for system user... all is fast & low memory.

Anyway, I'm off to the beach for awhile.

Happy Hackin'!
