Theming ezFlow with theme from Themeforest

Theming ezFlow with theme from Themeforest

Sunday 21 October 2012 10:24:11 pm - 4 replies

Hi,

i need to apply a theme from Themeforest to a website, which is using eZFlow. What is the best approach to do this?

Have two solutions on my mind:
1) Use original eZFlow layout, and change original CSS files
2) Use CSS from theme, and adopt all needed "parts" (views) of eZFlow to that CSS file
Any suggestion is apprecieated. Thanks.

Hi,

I would go for number 2. It maybe a lot of work initially, but it will simplify later maintenance when updates to theme occur.

Hello,

You also need to modify the HTML in your eZ Publish design templates according to your Themeforest theme.
Turn on Debug output, List of used templates in your administration interface and you'll see which templates need to be modified.

I suggest to create your own design extension and copy all your theme files there (override templates, CSS, JS, Images etc.)

Cheers,

Theo

Thanks for the advice, but i'm a little suspicios about editing "frontpages" and "landing pages" because of their requirenments (they need YUI to work), because they share identical layout as the page itself. Template than must be implemented also use a few jQuery plugins, so i'm also worried about possible conflicts.

 There shouldn't be any.

YUI and jQuery work fine alongside each other in my experience.
