== How to create your own theme ==
You probably want to do one of the following:
* If you just want to change the text, link, background, content, sidebar colours, background image:
** Do this from the Admin->Design settings (recommended!). You could also create a directory and a file structure like the default theme, search and replace with your own values. This is more work, but, you can do this if you plan to make additional *minimal* changes.
* If you want to change the background images and colours:
# Create a directory and a file structure like the default theme.
# Have your stylesheet import base/css/display.css and add your own styles below. It is okay to add *minimal* changes here.
* If you want to create a different layout, typography, background images and colours:
** Create your own theme directory (base or default) with stylesheets and images like.
Finally, enable your theme by selecting it from the Admin->Design interface. You can set site's logo from here as well.
* To use/import the base theme, add this to your theme.ini file:
include=base
* To include an external CSS resource (e.g. for a webfont), add this to the top of your theme.ini file:
external[]="yourexternalURL"
