Hello again everyone,


If I take the default theme and re-design it as a new theme, and then export it, would that be possible?

and would the theme start to bug in the future in a case of Upgrade ?

thank you

Never copy the whole default theme, because you're guaranteeing problems later on. A blank theme automatically inherits from the default theme. The fewer files you override in your own theme, the lower the chance of problems with future versions. We try and limit issues though.

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

but because I don't understand the comcode function properly , I feel like I need to hard code style functions to get the look am after.

- Like the fact that I want to set a different design for each of my news blocks
