Creating New Theme

by  amarlalitha »  2011/06/07 18:39

I need to create a new theme for the site. Are there easy instructions to accomplish. I am not updating any templates, just need to create a new theme (most probably by copying and pasting an existing theme). Kindly help me out.

Thanks,
Amar.

Hello Amar,

you can take a look at the Web templates set, bundled with Jahia.
A theme is automatically detected, if you template set has a folder themes//1 Site Settings.

Please, do not hesitate to come back if you need more details.

Kind regards
Sergiy

    Hi Amar,

    do you use the CE?
    To create a new theme I did the following with Jahia Community Edition (CE):

    1. I copied an existing thema to another folder giving the new theme name
    cd /usr/share/jahia_v6_CommunityEdition_r25203/webapps/ROOT/jsp/jahia/templates/web-templates/theme/
    cp -r default newTheme

    2. I created my new virtual site choosing the new theme in the creation wizard

    3. I created some pages in the new site, the header logo, the footer.

    4.I opend the web.css file
    vi newTheme/css/web.css

    5. On Firefox I opend the Add-on Firebug
    you find this very useful add on hier: https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/1843

    6. I pointed to the interface parts I want to change and viewed the line numbers in firebug where the css classes are definied

    7. I changed the lines in web.css to my own look

    8. Reload the browser

    have fun

    Andreas
