This section provides guidance on developing themes for Backdrop.

A theme is a collection of files which define the presentation layer of a Backdrop site. The theme determines the appearance of a site including fonts, colors, backgrounds, and other decorations.

A template for developing themes may be downloaded here.

In Backdrop, themes are not responsible for the layout of your site. For example themes have no say over the number or arrangement of columns available for your content.

You can also have one or more "sub-themes", or variations on a theme.
