Creating a custom theme for Vanilla

edited March 2013 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8

I've followed the instructions to change the Html structure of my theme here so i've copied the folders in http://localhost:8888/vanilla/themes/my_theme/views/ but whatever i change nothing happens, only default.master.php in the same views folder is receptive to changes.

What did I make wrong?

    Within the views folder you should have subfolders that mirror the folder you're copying them from. For instance, to modify /applications/vanilla/views/discussions/discussions.php, copy discussions.php to /themes/my_theme/views/discussions.

    I tried this just now and it worked for me. I copied
    to my themes folder
  • that's what i did actually, but bad luck.

    but for now, it would help to know where the file location for the "panel" is. because id like to add additionally an extra 'div' to a.BigButton.

    I did a grep and found BigButton in these files:

    modules/newdiscussion.php (Start a New Discussion)

    modules/newconversation.php (Start a New Conversation)
  • thank you very much :-)
  • Eureka the folders are now also receptive for changes, it seems there was a delay caused by a cached file or such.

    Thanks again.
