Title: Authoring a site theme [WIP] [Needs Naos steady hand]
Post by: Norodo on June 28th, 2012, 07:44 PM
Determining the scope of your project

Needs and goals when modifying messageboards can vary a lot. Some of us simply want to edit the background color of posts, while some of us want to redesign our pages from the bottom up to give them that “unique” feel. Wedge fortunately makes it relatively simple to do either.

If you want to change how the whole site feels and behaves, you want to create a theme. If you want to make a quick change to Wedge, like changing the colour of post content, you want to create a skin. A skin slides over its theme to change only a few properties of it.


To make a theme, make a subfolder […tbc…]

 1. The folder can have any name you want, but I would recommend you name it either the same as your skin, or the shortened name of your skin. For example: For a skin called The Undertaker, you can name the folder Undertaker.
 2. Protip: You can also create subskins by creating new skin folders inside the already existing skin folders. For example, you can edit the Warm skin by creating a folder inside the Warm folder
