quick question: Does anyone know how you can call the 'current' theme in the PHP code - I'm looking for the equivalent of $ThemeDir used on the templates, but for use on the php code files. Something like $this->Theme()?

eg. instead of

static $icon = "themes/FuelCMS/images/treeicons/folderauto";

it would be something like
static $icon = "themes/".$this->Theme."FuelCMS/images/treeicons/folderauto";

Hi, trying this in SS3.0.3 & I get the wrong theme. I get the theme set in _config.php which is only the default theme not the current. removing SSViewer::set_theme('simple'); will cause SSViewer::current_theme() to return nothing !
is this a bug or has it changed in SS3 ?
Thanks
