I love the idea of the child theme and just getting used to the idea of changing only the main Dynamix folder when updating my site. If I use the custom skin feature and overwrite the Dynamix main folder, I surely lose the Custom skin graphics that are designed to be placed in the main Dynamix folder.
I just wondered if there was a reason for having it this way or if not maybe this is an idea for a future release?
Can you shed more light on this? I'm trying to do this now, and when i place all the elements where they belong inside the child theme, i still get the default "custom theme creator" skin when custom skin is selected…
I put the custom skin files in /dynamix child theme/stylesheets and the images folder in there.
I have the skin in place now, but the only way i could get it to show was by putting the files in the main DynamiX theme folder instead of the Child Theme directory.
I'd prefer to be able to put it in the child theme so i don't have to do this every time i update DynamiX.
I'm not sure why it's not working in the Child Theme – what version of DynamiX are you using?
In 2.8.7 I introduced a much simpler method of creating custom skins – it might be worth checking that out. I'm going to release 2.8.8 today so might be worth waiting for that.
