Support Team posted this 25 November 2016

Hi everyone!

We are happy to inform you that the first Beta version of Drupal 8 themes for Themler is ready for testing and feedback!

If you are interested in helping us to make Drupal 8 themes better please download the attached theme and install it on your local/remote Drupal 8 installation and start testing.
Please let us know about any bugs you find or questions that you have.

How to Install and Use Drupal 8 Themes.

Why there is a separate theme for Drupal 8 and is it compatible with Drupal 7? Can we convert existing Drupal 6-7 themes to Drupal 8 themes?

Drupal 8 is a completely re-written version of the Drupal platform built on simphony. The current Drupal 6-7 theme are not compatible with Drupal 8 for 100%. Therefore we created completely new Themler themes for Drupal 8.

Unfortunately, the existing Themler themes for Drupal 6-7 cannot be converted to Drupal 8 themes.

What subscription do I need to test Drupal 8 themes?

The ability to save and export Drupal 8 themes is available for customers who have regular Drupal subscription. Otherwise Themler will work in DEMO mode and you will not be able to save or export themes.
NOTE: if you have expired Drupal subscription you will be able to try the attached theme. But, as usual, you will not be able to update Themler to get the latest version of the Drupal 8 themes.

How to report bugs?

If you faced any problems with beta themes please contact us via our Answers system by creating new private or public topic with drupal8-beta-testing tag. In addition to this please type "Drupal 8" in the topic title.

Please do not submit technical issues in this topic because it is impossible to handle them in such general topics.

Does the new Drupal 8 theme support Views?

Drupal 8 themes work with Views module in the same way as Drupal 6-7 themes.
Please refer to this article for more details.

Please note that Beta products carry increased risk of malfunctioning and are not recommended for use with live websites. However, we welcome your feedback and will update Themler within several days if any major issues are reported to us.

Thank you for helping us to make Themler Better!

Sincerely,
Themler Team

Hello,
I just start design one of my site using drupal 8. I'm not expert at Drupal. I'm able to design my home/front page using themler, have any option to design another page with themler like...my page service, portfolio, about us & contact us? While i'm trying to make a custom page template then page created but when i'm trying to adding any content using themler then it will redirect to blog template, is it normal or it's bug? Also horizontal menu does not appear while i edit my site using themler, but it show if i visit my site normally. Also menu need to arrange by untitled_preview theme, if i rearrange menu by untitle theme then it's not working, can you tell me is it bug or normal? This is my site url https://www.biswasit.net

Thank you.

Hi,

Themler for Drupal does not support editing of Drupal content like it is in Joomla or WP themes.
Themler creates the design for front page, articles, basic pages, etc only:

Home template for front page,
Page template for Basic Page,
Post Template for Article,
Blog template for /node view,
Default template for all other pages and content types.

The Blocks should be managed for both themes: basic theme and _preview:

While i'm trying to make a custom page template then page created but when i'm trying to adding any content using themler then it will redirect to blog template

Could you please describe this issue step by step?

Thank you,
Olivia

Hi,

Simply download theme and install it on your Drupal 8 and test it without starting Themler.

You cannot open a Drupal 8 theme(downloaded from above) from within the Desktop version it fails the load !!!!!

The Desktop version does not include Drupal 8 installation. Drupal 8 themes are not compatible with Drupal 7 used in Themler Desktop. Please try theme on your local/remote Drupal 8 installation.

Thank you,
Olivia
