How to customize default theme of 2.1b1?
I was reading through the documentation while playing around with my new 2.1b1 installation, and I think I am doing something wrong in my tries to customize the default theme.
Is theming done differently for 2.1 than before / do themes for 2.0.x need to be especially adapted for 2.1?
Are settings in custom.css supposed to override settings from style.css?
Is there any simple way get have the look of the former 2.0.x default theme back in 2.1?
What I did so far:
I copied themes/default to themes/mytheme, created themes/mytheme/design and themes/mytheme/views, modified about.php, created an empty custom.css in themes/mytheme/design, copied default.master.tpl to themes/mytheme/views and activated mytheme in Appearance >> Themes.
I tried to make some changes by adding modified snippets from style.css to custom.css, but that didn't change anything.
I don't want to make a lot of changes to the default theme, but I would like to have the column on the right side again, not to the left.
The default 2.1b1 theme is not properly displayed with an older browser version of Firefox (namely Iceweasel 3.0.6, which is Debian-rebranded Firefox 3.0.6), see the attached screenshot. The search box is misplaced and the little box showing the number of posts in "All Categories" is misplaced into the "General" category. That's a problem I didn't experience with the default theme of 188.8.131.52 (but I know, that browser version is completely outdated, so no big thing).
BTW Why is the former default theme as "2011Compatibility" in the themes folder, but doesn't show up under Appearance >> Themes?
