Alternative 1. Simple usage:
- Rename local-blank.css to local.css found on the css folder.
- Put all your design customizations to this file.
Note: You do not need to add "css/local.css" to the .info file. Groundwork will try to find local.css and use it if it's available.
Alternative 2. Use an existing sub-theme. Easy design development:
- Look for a Groundwork sub-theme which looks the nearest you want to achieve with your site design. Download and install it.
- Rename local-blank.css of your sub-theme to local.css
- Customize away!
Alternative 3. Create your own subtheme. A more customized usage:
- Copy the folder "subwork" to one of the following locations:
(Please check Drupal documentation to learn the differences of these folders.)
- Rename subwork.info to the same name of your folder.
- Edit subwork.info and find "name = Subwork". This is the human-friendly name of your theme. Change it to your themename with the first letter capitalized.
- Use local.css in the css folder of your new theme for your customizations.
Note: It is not necessary to enable Groundwork if you are going to use a sub-theme but it must be present
