Elgg example theme framework v1.0

Release Notes

This theme is an example theme framework that can be used as a starting point for your own theme work. It requires Elgg version 1.5.

example themeIt includes overrides for all the graphics (default avatars, group icons, river icons, file type icons, widget-picker icons, friends-picker arrows, owner-block icons, avatar menu arrows, etc.).

It also includes css overrides for all the Elgg full-package plugins (blog, categories, custom_index, external pages, file, groups, members, notifications, profile, thewire, twitter etc.).

Once unzipped and copied to your /mod directory, log-in as Admin, go to Tool Administration, and use the controls to move the theme plugin to the bottom of the plugin list (so that it loads last). Making a change to the plugin list order will force the sites cache to be updated - so the new theme is displayed (or you can run upgrade.php to rebuild the sites cache).

If you are looking for a guide on how to upgrade your existing custom theme to v1.5 have a look at this documentation.
