New to sitefinity and working out where/how to do everything.
Just so I know I am going down the right path, let me ask if this is the right thoughtpath.
I use a template/master file to define all the placeholders where stuff will go. Some of these containers may have stuff in them, such as a nav control, while others will be blank, such as a content placeholder.
While the above sets up the actual working areas, it doesnt setup the appearance, size, or location of any of that stuff. For that, I need to make a theme.
In my theme I put any images, colors, classes, etc to define the size, position, and other appearance related attributes.
At this point I will then have a page with containers for the different parts of the page, and they will be in the locations and sizes that I want. I can then use this template/theme combination for any/all pages in my sitefinity based site.
Is that about right?
