Customize Template Files?
« on: October 01, 2013, 04:49:47 PM »
Is there a protocol for customizing templates and style sheets. I am just using the default_html5 template out of the box. The first issue that I ran into is that I would like to update some styles, colors, fonts...  How can I customize the stylesheets for this template without losing my work upon upgrade. I have read some about extensions, but it seems like a long way to go to edit a few lines of css.

I searched through docs and forums for the answer and am not finding it.

Thanks!

We plan to make this feature native soon, probably next release.
But it already partially realized in developer tools extension.
if you want to start right now i can explain how to generate your own template based on default, but this way not easy for now.

Fastest way to inspect HTML, CSS and Javascript is to use Firebug with Fire Fox browser.
You can quickly locate CSS class, file location, etc. 
Not to mention edit n the fly.
