Convert to Xoops

I need to convert a psd/html template into a xoops theme. Can someone either point me to a really good tutorial, or if you are willing, do it for me?

Re: Convert to Xoops

Buy the book "Designing for XOOPS".

It has a special section on how to do it, and it's an excellent book overall!
Support XOOPS => DONATE
Use 2.5.10 | Docs | Modules | Bugs

Re: Convert to Xoops

I've made good progress, however it seems i'm getting stuck when doing the theming for the various modules, including the system modules. for example, what I have no works really good for items such as the admin menu, and user menu. But not well with things like Login and who's online.

Any tips for maybe doing an if statement in the theme_blockright/left for the other types?

Re: Convert to Xoops

You have good knowledge of html and css?
If you have, study the structure of an existing xoops theme that will be easy
convert your psd.

The book is very good, with it you will learn quickly, be a good acquisition.

I wrote a tutorial on developing themes, basic, but in Portuguese: http://bit.ly/P0za4R

Good luck.
