omega_kickstart subtheme


Could anyone give me some pointers as to what I need to carry over from omega_kickstart to a sub theme?

Kickstart 2 is brilliant and I'd like to base my site on omega_kickstart but without changing anything in the omega_kickstart theme.

* What needs to go into .info
* Do I need to carry over the template.php
* Etc

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I created a subtheme of Omega Kickstart like this:

drush omega-subtheme "Custom Kickstart" --base=omega_kickstart --enable

Worked like a charm. From there, just begin extending the new subtheme as per the Omega documentation. The first thing you'll likely do is add a global.css to the /css directory and drop in some style rules. I'm also using LESS CSS in my project, which just takes a few extra steps.

With the Omega 3.x stuff, that drush command is available via the add-on Omega Tools module... for Omega 4.x I believe drush support is built-in and you are warned not to install Omega Tools with Omega 4.x.
