Deploying a custom theme as a farm solution

Hello,   I am a beginner to Visual Studio 2010 + Sharepoint 2010 - I have created a custom theme and would like to deploy it to my dev Sharepoint farm as a solution.  I've added the "Sharepoint mapped folder.." (..TEMPLATE\GLOBAL\Lists\themes) and added my thmx to that folder in the project.  When the solution is deployed to my dev farm the custom theme gets added to the 14 hive \TEMPLATE\GLOBAL\Lists\themes folder but when a new site is created the theme is not available from Site Settings->Site Theme or in the Theme Gallery.  What am I missing here?

Hide 'site theme' in MOSS 2007.


Hi experts,

I have applied customized theme in my client company SharePoint portal. Now, i need that the site theme link in the Main Page site setting  be hide, so that any person despite what access they have cannot change the theme. Is there any way for me to do that? I have look at SharePoint Designer 2007 and locate the directory, but it not available. I want to hide, not to remove, so that in future if there any theme changes, i can do it without problem creating back the link or what so ever.

Thanks a bunch!

Need to change site theme dynamically in MOSS 2007



I'm searching for a web part (or some code easy to implement) that allow to change site theme everytime I click on a link. For example, suppose that I've three colored circles: Red, Blue and Brown. If I click on the red one, I'll obtain the Red theme site; if I select the Blue one, I'll obtain the Blue theme site, and so on. Basically, I need something to personalize look and feel of my site depending on users preferences.

Thanks in advance.

When using a custom theme, there is no custom files added to "_themes" directory.


I've been working on customizing some Sharepoint 2010 Team sites and have read through many helpful articles on how to create and edit custom themes. The most consistent method is to create a base theme in Powerpoint which I've done.

I then install this THMX file in the themes library and apply it to my pages which seems to work as expected. The one inconsistency with what these articles say and what is happening on my end is that there is no numbered directory created in the "_themes" directory when I view All Files. These articles explain that this directory is created every time you apply a theme to your site so you can further edit the images and CSS associated with the theme. All I see in this "_themes" directory is "Custom.thmx, CustomPreview.thxm."

Is there some site setting or permissions issue I should look into to have this directory available to me?
