Got a little bug that’s driving me crazy and after looking at the theme pages and inspecting examples in the browser I honestly don’t know what is wrong.
I’m under the assumption that a theme allows for pretty much drag drop usage of components and containers where they are automatically styled with the CSS in the theme. Nesting a container does things like provides automatic padding and changes the background by 10% each level you nest it. Or it should, right? Drag a container, nest 3 more, and the last container should have a background of like 60% grey, right?
I’ve read the theme docs over and over, I’ve watched the videos, I used to hand code strict HTML/CSS for a living about 10 years back so this isn’t an alien language to me, and it just doesn’t “work”. Dragging a component like a menu tree comes styled with the appropriate theme but the backgrounds of the containers, fonts, etc. are not changing. Is there a param I need to add? Something at the session level missing?
I need to get started on a project and I’m at an impasse where the only way I’ve been able to effect change is to provide style classes which is a whole bunch of work that I’m pretty sure I don’t have to do. What am I doing wrong? Do I have to make a custom theme to effect this nested change? Pretty confused.
EDIT: it seems the themes are a lot more bare bones than I thought. Just going ahead and coding a custom one.
