[geeklog-devel] Proposal about improving the admin section

I think the admin theme should stay in the layout directory. The directory
should be named admin.

A few new config options would be required in functions.php (if not found
then defaults set)

'admin_theme' => 'admin', // Default is 'admin' and this is specifying the
directory in layout for the admin theme

'theme_type' => 'frontend', // Default is 'frontend' and the other option is
'admin'. This specifies what the theme is for and can be used by user
preferences etc.. to make sure we display the correct type of  themes is
select boxes, etc..

I modified core system directly.
There was no need to write this change as a plugin.
Also, I think there is so far no need to add some plugin API.

We would should consider whether to include the admin theme in the layout
For example, we can add a directory named such as admin_layout, and it might
be better to include the admin theme in the directory.

No, I am assuming that it may be used by all themes freely.
