A basic understanding of themes....(please!)

Post by mtridersclb » Thu Dec 10, 2015 8:21 am

Some of you will have seen I am beginning to work out how to make alterations to my forum and, with your help, it has started simply and well BUT I struggle to work out what ought to go where so, would you guys have a stab at explaining how it works:

Im on 3.1.6

Prosilver/Prosilver_SE

Is that a Parent/ child?

which part governs what?

eg; which images sit in which inage folder?

Once I can 'see' the structure then my learning will become easier.

Thank you

If you are using a style that does not contain all of the html files and all of the css files just like prosilver, then it is a child of prosilver since it uses some of prosilver's files.

a style that contains all of its own files is not a child and you would do any edits to only the files contained in it.

if a style is a child of another style, then any edits you need to do to a file that is not contained in its folders has to be done to the other style.
