1 user in more institutions - which theme is shown?
21 March 2009, 15:44Hi there! What happens, when a user is a member in more than only 1 institution. Which theme will be shown, when every instituation as it's own layout? By the way: Can a user switch between his institutions? So long, Dietmar

greetings from Germany ;-)
As far as I know the theme of the institution is used. I have to check this., but I think that during the login the users selects for which institution he wants to login. So Mahara knews which theme to use.
Hope that helps
22 March 2009, 5:50Hi Heinz! Greetings from Austria ;-) As you know, the admin is able to map users to more than only 1 institution. What happens If a user is in the institution (for example) "Berlin" and "Munich"? Which theme will be shown? Is the user able to switch between his institutions and so between themes?

I think it would be a good exercise to test the situation you mention in a real situation/simulation. Do you setup a mahara site for testing? Otherwise feel free to join my site http://ewiesion.com/mahara and we play with it.
Feel free to contact me via skype (h1moodle)
22 March 2009, 16:42I think the current behaviour is that one of those themes will be shown, but the user cannot choose which one, and there is no way for the administrator to prioritise institutions or themes. So whether the user sees the Berlin or Munich theme will probably depend on something fairly arbitrary like the order in which those institutions are returned from the database.
