How do I create a theme and submit my work?
1. Download the latest beta of ASPRunnerPro 7 or PHPRunner 6 and install it. The current build is 9157.
2. Create a new project, add several tables, create a hierarchical menu, enable login page. The idea is to create a project that covers the most design areas to help you build a complete theme.
3. Proceed to the Style Editor screen, choose a Style and Color Scheme as a starting point and click ‘Customize’. Change colors, fonts, borders etc. until your theme looks exactly the way you want it.
4. Make sure your theme looks good with all layouts i.e. make sure you setup both horizontal and vertical menus and submenus. We also recommend building the application and running it in the browser.
5. Style Editor creates a copy of the style and color files in your project folder. For example, if you started customizing “Fancy” style and “Orange” color scheme the Style Editor creates files Fancy1.style and colors\Orange1.color under project folder.
If your project name is Project1 the files you are looking for are: C:\Users\Documents\PHPRunnerProjects\Project1\styles\Fancy1.style and C:\Users\Documents\PHPRunnerProjects\Project1\styles\colors\Orange1.style
Note: on Windows XP folder with projects is typically located under My documents\PHPRunnerProjects
6. Proceed to our helpdesk and send us those .color and .style files. You may want to rename style and color files giving them more meaningful names.
Where do I draw inspiration from?
There are multiple websites such as www.oswd.org and www.freewebsitetemplates.com offering free html templates with a large number of interesting and visually appealing page styles and color schemes. That should give you a great starting point.
What is a theme?
Theme is a combination of the page style (.style file) and color scheme (.color file) created in ASPRunner/PHPRunner Style Editor.
