Okay - I've worked with a variety of CMS's and some are easy to set up themes and some aren't. This CMS is nice in a lot of ways but customizing a theme/template is not easy here. In fact I think I'm following the directions and am getting no changes happening.
During install I decided to go ahead with the blackcandy theme. Now I decide that I would like to change it to higherground. I've changed it in the _config file in the mysite directory and I've already uploaded the higher ground theme folder and files in themes directory. I've also done the ?flush=1 thing and still don't get any changes. I don't understand.
I would like to get to the point where I can just create my site layout then implement it with the CMS. I used to use PHPWCMS and they make setting up the theme really easy and nice to use. I hope that's next on the feature upgrades to the site.
Can anyone help with the question I have above? Thx
The themes should be plug and play as in all you need to do - as you pointed out is upload the theme to the themes folder, change the config to point to it and do a flush. That should be all you need to do
You could make sure you have edited the right SSViewer::set_theme() line by removing it totally or removing the theme name from the config file and then doing a flush + a hard reset of the browser (if your xp / firefox its ctrl+F5) which will totally clear any cache. Does this 'break' the layout at all? If it does then that SSViewer::set_theme() is correct and you dont have 2 set themes anywhere lol!.
