Styling Pawtucket -- galleries and splash

edited April 2017 in Pawtucket
I'm configuring and styling a new Pawtucket 2 site, and I'm newish as well to the product. Most of the progress I've made so far has come from reverse-engineering the themes that came from other projects as well as "default." I think this is because as I was getting going I found a confusing mismatch between what is installed in Pawtucket 2 and what's in the documentation as it relates to various aspects, configurations and plugins that should be part of the default theme.

For instance, there's quite a good description of customizing Pawtucket section by section that includes a view referred to as "Splash" in which you'd edit default text and set some really desirable features. I don't find any of that in any of the themes, including Default. Similarly -- and probably more important to where I'd like to go with the site -- there are several views and confs related to galleries (including the entire simpleGallery plug-in) that are not a part of what I've installed.

Are these instructions valid for Pawtucket 2? And in the case of Galleries, have I missed a download somewhere?

Thanks for nudging me in the right direction.


  • Hi ajhartley,

    Pawtucket2 has it's own documentation here:

    Pawtucket2 works with subthemes, so you should not edit the default theme directly.  You should create a new theme from the "copyme" folder and copy views into the folder structure to override the settings in the fallback default theme.
