    • Hi, new to elgg. I am trying to build a site with social community in mind. Peeple can join groups, and upload photos. But I have stucked on how to layout the plugin/module on the site in order to skin them. I would like to build a theme by myself though. Just need some guidance on how to build a theme from scrtach. Anyone can help?

    • Easy way to do your own theme. Go to the theme page download a theme. I used the Theme_elgg_example and then just go in an modify Theme/views/default/css.php and run through that file. If you arent sure what each part is then change the color to FFAAFF and look for it. Something will do nothing but with some time you can figure out what is where and how to change it. Hope this helps.


    • Thank you so much. I will download the example right away, and start modify. Will come back if i stuck again. Thanks.
