Installation Alternatives

Please check full documentation of Groundwork theme at http://groundwork.noceda.no

Alternative 1. Simple usage:

  1. Rename local-blank.css to local.css found on the css folder.
  2. 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:

  1. Look for a Groundwork sub-theme which looks the nearest you want to achieve with your site design. Download and install it.
  2. Rename local-blank.css of your sub-theme to local.css
  3. Customize away!

Alternative 3. Create your own subtheme. A more customized usage:

  1. Copy the folder "subwork" to one of the following locations:
    • sites/all/themes
    • sites/default/themes
    • sites/example.com/themes

    (Please check Drupal documentation to learn the differences of these folders.)

  2. Rename subwork.info to the same name of your folder.
  3. 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.
  4. Use local.css in the css folder of your new theme for your customizations.
  5. Note: It is not necessary to enable Groundwork if you are going to use a sub-theme but it must be present
