[geeklog-devel] Geeklog Demo Updating

I believe most (if not all) of the themes on the demo site are GL 1.4.1 
compatible. However, there are some that aren't rendering properly 
(stretching of graphics, missing .thtml files etc.) I say we put those 
off to the side for the time being, (perhaps someone can find time to 
tweak on them in the future) and showcase the themes that are 100% 
compatible, along with some of the most popular/useful plugins (Forum, 
MediaGallery, Captcha, File Management, Dokuwiki, vThemes, and 
Chatterblock come to mind, but I'm sure there are others I am 
forgetting). ...A thought about the themes - is there a .thtml file that 
was created for the 1.4.1 release that we can use to see if indeed a 
theme is 1.4.1 compatible? That, along with a visual check of the 
homepage in that theme should be enough to tell if it should be included 
in the demo site or not.

Having said the above, with GL 1.5 on the horizon, we may want to 
rethink some of the above. My sense is that we should hold off on 
implementing any changes on the demo site until 1.5 is released, as it 
will need to be updated then as well.
