Thank you to Robert for your latest comments in my Retro-wide ticket
I had some questions that seemed more appropriate here then on the ticket.
Based on your earlier comments, I have been looking at the files in /default
and /default-wide as libraries to use. From what you say now that doesn't
seem to be the case. Is it more they are fall-backs, then libraries to use ?
Part of the issue is that the current default is closely related to the old
Retro (or vice-versa), so there weren't all that many changes. What I did
instead was use base.xml to over-ride many of the primitives, rather than
updating each piece in the individual module templates.
So even though there aren't .xml files for each modules, the look is
I'm probably bringing to themeing concepts from a web CMS I use (Zikula). In
that system, you only over-ride specific templates, by copying them from a
master area to a site-specific area. Anything you don't want to change you
don't need to copy, and being the web many changes can be made in CSS
instead. I suppose I looked at ui.xml as a style sheet.
That's where I'm coming from. Am I looking at themeing incorrectly ?
