Our first steps with Supermint
I would first like to thank you for purchasing Supermint.
Supermint Is a project that I wear for a long time with much love and care. The years have allowed me to present to you today a leading theme, mature and hopefully well documented.
Thousands of hours were needed to develop this package, excitement before new feature or disillusionment to others. Supermint is constantly changing, weekly developments are grafted to the theme, new features, new templates, classes, ..
If despite all my efforts, those of Concrete5 PRB to make the perfect theme, you encounter trouble, do not hesitate, go to create a support request.
The logic of Supermint and Myconcterelab theme in general is based on some fundamental principles:
So if you master well the custom templates, and classes for block areas and the attributes, you will take great pleasure in creating your site with Supermint and believe me I know what I mean.
If these concepts are still unclear or unknown, do not worry, in a few hours (if not minutes), through this documentation and the one on concrete5.org you will master these principles and will join the group of happy users.
If you have never installed a package on a Concrete5 site, read first this : http://www.concrete5.org/documentation/using-concr...
If you choose to install a starting point from Supermint, please do it on a fresh Concrete5 installation. When you will install Concrete5 on a server you have 2 choice of content, choose Empty Site.
Once the install button clicked you will see a gallery with all Starting point available. For each you see a button for a preview another to choose it. Once your choice made, click on bottom on the install button. This can take some time, don't refresh or leave the page !
Read the documentation to discover how to play with supermint !
The best way to customize files theme and keep the update functionality is to know what you want to change.
If you want to customize css :
- Create a file named supermint.css placed at root/application/themes/supermint/css/supermint.css
If you want modify a page-type :
- Copy/paste the page-type file from packages/theme_supermint/themes/supermint/left_sidebar.php into root/themes/supermint/left_sidebar.php and modify it as you want
If you want to add a page-type :
- Add a file into root/application/themes/supermint/my_page_type.php. After go to dashboard > page-types > add a page type, name it and give as handle the file name (my_page_type). This page type will be available now when you will create a new page.
If you want to modify the header.php or footer.php or any other files from Supermint theme elements folder:
- Copy/paste the header file from packages/theme_supermint/themes/supermint/elements/header.php to root/application/themes/supermint/elements/header.php and change what you want into this.
