We are going to change some themes for our journals. And the question is whether the upcoming OJS 3.0 will handle themes much differently than 2.*? Would we be able to convert our themes easily, or should we rather wait for the 3.0 before doing the redesign?
OJS 3.0 is a fairly complete rewrite, so your themes will need to be rewritten for that release. We did not preserve backward compatibility because the old styles had grown very brittle and difficult to work with; I hope you’ll find working with design in the OJS 3.0 environment will be much more inviting.
