I may be running into two conflicting methodologies here.
Basic Drupal theme philosophy is to sub-theme and only change what is different from the sub-theme.
I am using taxonomy hierarchy and theming their views slightly different.
Taxonomy Theme -------- ----- Zone MyBaseTheme -Arts ArtsTheme (change the header image) --Dance ArtsTheme (change the header image) ---Company1 Comp1Theme (change the header image and menu items) ---Comapny2 Comp2Theme --Theater ArtsThee ---Thespians1 Thesp1Theme ---Thespians2 Thesp2Theme -Sports SportsTheme --Boys SportsTheme ---Football FootballTheme ---Baseball BaseballTheme --Girls etc ---Field Hockey etc
This would seem to mean the I could subtheme off of zen then only make some minor changes for each. Common stuff such as font size and spacing would be done in MyBaseTheme. Zen seems to use a large font for instance so I want to make it smaller.
I could change the banner images in each sub-theme off of MyBase.
So far so good except...
Zen seem to want to use the SASS methodology for CSS coding.
Copying Starter Kit stuff is getting me whole copies of every CSS attribute for every sub-theme. I don't want copies, I want inheritance.
Anyone ever run into this problem? Thoughts?
