i followed this tutorialhttp://www.concrete5.org/documentation/how-tos/designers/make-a-the...
(not even sure if its the right way)
in the end when i did all the changes and extra's I end up with the following messege when i installed the them
File /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/concrete/themes/website/view.php not found. All themes need default.php and view.php files in them. Consult concrete5 documentation on how to create these files.
I tried to find a solutions but i'm only getting more confused.
I found Remo's discussion helpful at:http://www.codeblog.ch/2009/01/concrete5-theme-erstellen/.... It tackles the basics rather than all the details, but it gives a good introduction to those.
All the best! Perhaps someone else can comment on your specific issue.
Try the video?
You need a few basic files and a few basic elements for C5 to work. If you need more direction, shout.
But what basic things do i miss?
Confirm the basics:
1. The theme files are directly under the folder with the theme name. (Typically, with a complete theme, I save the zip file in the theme folder and just unzip it in place. Then the folder name is the name of the theme.) Note that the name of the subfolder under "/themes" must reflect the name of the theme. So, the "sunset" theme would be located under "/themes/sunset".
2. Check the "Description.txt" file. Make sure that the first line reflects the name of the theme. The 2nd line, if used, serves as a description for the theme.
HTH. If it doesn't, why don't you just give us the exploded folder structure under themes.
Basic items needed:
elements folder with footer.php and header.php files in it
description.txt name and a short description of theme
If the view.php is missing create a new file named view.php and paste in code below:
Hope that helps
