D8 themes

D8 themes was created by Juc2
Hi all,

In D7 I use a base theme (such as Omega, Zen etc) and a subtheme - but I read somewhere that this base theme / sub-theme model does not apply or is not needed in D8 - can anyone please explain this (ie why a sub theme is not necessary in D8 etc).

Thanks...

Hi Juc2,

While what you say is technically true you do not need base or sub theme any more it is still best practise to do so.

Theming in drupal 8 can now be done in different ways you can do it the traditional way or theme your site with twig.

I would still sub theme a site so that any changes to the core of the code are update-able.

If you want more information you can check out the official theming guide .

Thanks,
Daniel
