I’m using the default (Thanks Roy) theme. If I use the dashboard to change the color of my site’s body text, for example (clicking Appearance > Theme > Configure Theme), I don’t see that change reflected anywhere in the css file (located in /themes/default/css/style.css)
In fact, as I browse through the site’s folders, I can’t find any files with an updated timestamp that reflects when I changed the font color. I’m just curious, where is the file(s) are that contain the code for a customized theme?
Omeka themes store custom settings in the MySQL database. The settings are retrieved by theme’s php script using the
For the ThanksRoy theme you will find the custom look options recall in the
/common/header.php file, starting form line 33. There is a
<style> section beneath that makes use of the theme settings.
Thank you for the explanation, miniol! My site is hosted through Dreamhost, and I’m guessing that I don’t have access to the SQL database, which is why I couldn’t find where the settings are being stored. Not that I need access, I’m just interested in knowing how Omeka works under the hood.
