This may be a minor issue but thought I'd bring it up anyway. Sometimes I go through and install a few new hooks at a time or am uninstalling and then reinstalling hooks in an effort to troubleshoot or fix something. That in itself isn't so bad. What's bad is when each hook does the task of recaching all the skins.
An option to 'skip' caching of the skins or to import several hooks at a time before recaching would be real helpful. What's the purpose of going through the caching process five times in a row, when installing five hooks and then performing a recache manually would accomplish the same result in less time?
This would be a good idea..
I forgot to mention that it might be a good idea for the hooks to be forced into a disabled state (the ones that require skin recaching) until the recache is done, that way it won't break the board. By forced, I do mean that trying to enable it would either be ignored or would at that point initiate the skin recaching, but would basically refuse to be enabled until after the task has been done. Maybe not quite that obnoxious, but the general idea is made.
Matt already added something for that in 3.1.1.
You won't need anymore to re-cache the skins each time a hook with templates is installed ;)
Does the fix Matt applied not apply to CSS additions? People are having to manually recache skins to get background images pointing to the right place after installing my hook.
Is there a way I can do it automatically?
