In this lesson we have fast-forwarded some by completing the conversion of our old page.tpl.php into the new Omage theme. We'll take a look at the work we've done to get to this point, and then deal with what looks like could be a tricky HTML wrapper problem by creating a new zone for our theme, and configuring it to meet our needs. So, we'll:

  • Review templates and variables
  • Add a new zone to our theme
  • Configure our regions with the new zone

This is where we can really see how to blend the usefulness of code and configuration in Omega, to accomplish our task in a very simple way.
