I am programming five custom modules for a client in Drupal 7. Tey have, well, HAD, a company in India doing their front-end work. Something went wrong and the India company stopped responding and developing the front end, so I have been tasked with finishing the pages and of course still complete the modules. Didn't think this would be a real big deal, but here is the rub--
The company created the front page template. I went in created a few pages, [ie about, connect, meet the authors, etc]. When I looked at the pages, they looked awful, no formatting at all, except for the top navbar/header which is actually pulling from the subtheme. I have enough css skills to realize these new pages are not calling the base theme, in this case, they are using the drupal business theme located here [https://www.drupal.org/project/business].
The former company created a subtheme, of sorts, off the "Drupal Business" theme and have the page--front and page.tpl.php along with css and js related folders and files.
i turned on devel_themer and see the front/home page is calling the new front-page template. When I look and click on the body/node of my new pages below the top nav/header, the function call reference "theme-field", not the base theme or the subtheme that is in /sites/all/themes....
Since I am more a programmer and hence the reason I love Drupal, don't have to worry about all the theming stuff. I just need the new pages to apply the base theme's css and reference the settings correctly.
Could any of the theming pro's give me some insight, assistance please? It seems like there is a setting to apply the theme to the pages you want, but I can't figure that out.
