Though very powerful, and giving you total control, it might be a little bit too much in many cases, where you could happily use:
- a choice of preset colors, fonts, etc
- or start with a preset, but simply change some of the colors, fonts, sizes,...
Themes are the solution. Starting from version 1.3, wbAMP can manage themes. It comes with a default, built-in theme, but you can switch easily to other installed themes:
Install new themes
Themes, or a group of themes, are installed as Joomla plugins, in the
wbampthemes group, using the standard Joomla installer. They are also uninstalled the same way, and use the one-click Joomla updater as well.
While it seems counterintuitive that themes are not installed as Joomla! templates, there are good reasons for that, including the fact that themes only cover a fraction of what a template should do.
The first theme to be released,
Taylor is visually similar to the built-in theme, but brings in easy customization of many of its output:
Those screenshots are only a partial view, there are many more settings you can adjust to your liking. wbAMP will then make sure that custom CSS is inserted correctly, AMP-compliant, in your pages.
You can still use JLayouts overrides with themes, they are independent and can complete each other very well.
