Theme Workflow

Sub-themes are just like any other theme, with one difference: They inherit all of the parent theme’s resources. In addition, there are no limits on the chaining capabilities connecting sub-themes for their parents. A sub-theme can be a child of another sub-theme, and it can be branched and organized however you see fit.

Background

Drupal WxT includes WxT Bootstrap which is a a modern, component based and accessible sub-theme powered by the Bootstrap base theme.

The goal of this theme is to provide complete integration with the WET-BOEW jQuery Framework.

Preferred Workflow

One of the questions we often get asked is whether it is better to work with the WxT Bootstrap theme directly or create a child.

The answer is it usually is best to create you own sub-theme for departmental customizations and use WxT Bootstrap as the parent theme from which to inherit from.

Note: The following is an example of how the Open Data site does this with their own sub-theme called Open Data Bootstrap.
