Sprout Video

Because Omega doesn't make assumptions about your layout, it comes with lots of options and plenty of regions to work with. This is great but also has some down falls espcially if you are converting an exisiting theme that just doesn't need as many regions and zones. Along with removing regions you may need to add some as well. In this lesson we will demonstrate:

  • Adding a region
  • Removing regions
  • Placing content into these regions
  • Cleaning up the .info file

Once this is complete, we now have our converted theme setup just as it was before when it comes to the grid system and some blocks in place to make sure the layout is looking good.

NOTE: Kyle initially sets a position, but not the weight, of the footer_bottom region in this video, and then you'll see that he catches the mistake, and fixes it to have a weight of 3.
