I have a content type that I have made available for anonymous users to edit. I want that content type when it is in edit mode to use the front end theme. How would I achieve this? Thanks

Just make sure your anonymous user role (and any other relevant roles) don't have the 'View the administration theme' permission...then they'll get the default front-end theme when accessing any page that's deemed to be an 'admin' page.

  • is that in the normal permissions table? I can't seem to find it... Commented Nov 22, 2012 at 10:30

    It's under System. Just a little tidbit, FPA helps greatly when your permissions list gets long. It's essentially Module Filter but for the permissions page :)

    Yep, it's under the System Module's permissions in Drupal 7. I don't think there's an equivalent for D6 in case you're using that, but you could use something like ThemeKey to do the same thing.

    On the off change you are on D6, I think the Administration theme module will allow the same functionality as D7 core. I emphasise the think part as it's been a year or so since I've touched D6 in any great depth, and haven't had to use this in D7.

  • Yes, this is unfortunately a D6 site... Sorry I didn't mention that, but at least the question is now clear for both set ups! Thanks for the help. Commented Nov 22, 2012 at 10:55
