Style sheet file
- For the theme that you want to base a new theme on, find its CSS file in the styles directory. Please note that the CSS files are not in the templates directory tree. In a default Tiki installation, there are two directories named styles under the Tiki root:
- styles (for CSS files)
- templates/styles (for theme-specific sub-directories that contain .tpl files)
- Copy the CSS file, rename it to match your new theme name, and put it in the styles directory with all the other CSS files — for example, styles/newtheme.css.
- Edit newtheme.css to give your theme its style.
- If your theme is to use background and other images, it's best to create a subdirectory for them within the styles directory--giving it your theme's name.
- For example, styles/newtheme
Places to start
jalist.css has generally been recommended as a basic theme to base a new theme on. An example of a more detailed theme in terms of CSS is 'subsilver.css''.
Since you can change the CSS file and you can override any template your themes can make your Tiki site look like anything you want. The only limit is your imagination.
