    Using my theme for the blog. Link to this post

    How can I get the blog theme to work like my actual websites theme? I am a little confused how I go about editing the files to add the blog in to my website. could someone please explain to me how I can do this as the documentation is very limited and unhelpful(I have found anyway).
    Thanx in advance

    The framework searches for the templatein the following order:
    1. module specific theme (eg themes/blackcandy_blog/templates)
    2. the module´s own templates (eg blog/templates)
    3. main theme´s templates (eg themes/blackcandy/templates)

    A theme might have special templates for a module due to its design. If a themes designer did notcare about that, the modules own templates hop in. Last, if there are no templates found the system falls back an the themes templates.
    For the beginning just delete the CSS from 1. or 2. and your blog is likely to look more like you wanted it.
