Dear developers,

I am using Themler for my Doom Community page "Realm667" (www.realm667.com). Around christmas, I would like to use a slightly different theme. I could copy and paste the complete template and adjust it to my needs but if I change things on the original template, I will also have to change things on the special christmas template.

Is it possible to make a new template inherit data from an original master template and only adjust stuff (colors, css, etc) that are altered or new?

Best regards,
Dan

Hello Daniel,

If you need to create a separate template, you need to export this one, rename it, open with Themler Desktop and edit as you need. Let me know if I understand your request correctly.

Hey Gina,

not exactly. I understand how to clone a template, that's easy to handle. The problem is as follows:

Imagine having two cloned templates. Now I change colors on one the templates (only colors that are defined in Themler), nothing else. A few weeks later, I want to change a basic setting like width of the mobile template. This way I have to change it on both templates.

My request is to have one basic template A, then a second template B that inherits all data from the basic template A. If I change something on template A, it gets adapted (inherited) on template B - as long as I didn't overwrite the setting itself in template B.

Got me? :)

It is not possible to make such connection between separate themes (as I understand we are talking about themes, not different templates within same theme).

Well, can something be made like that for templates within a theme?

Controls can be shared between the templates inside same theme:

That's unfortunately not what I mean :( But I guess it simply doesn't work that way. Thanks though.

General styles are set under Design -> More styles. But this is not what your meant either I assume. Unfortunately, there is no other style sharing.
