Good afternoon, I am creating a custom theme but there is no way I will recognize it as a theme. It includes it as a plugin and does not let me select it in the theme form. How does AtoM differentiate a normal plugin from a theme? Regards.

Hi Isabel, 

We have a few different guides on working with theme plugins.

First, please see this section of the documentation which describes the process, and includes a sample theme plugin in a GitHub repository: 
Finally, for an overview of how theme plugins in AtoM are typically organized, and how to properly register and install a theme plugin, please see the attachment included here. 

Let us know if these resources help!

Cheers,

Hi Dan, I had already followed the steps in the documentation to create a theme, but it did not appear in AtoM to select.

I have been reviewing the document that you have sent me and in the end doing the make -C and restarting all the services it has finally appeared.

Thanks a lot!!
