Step 3. Enable the DX8 minimal theme

    To create a new website with DX8 you need to install and enable the DX8 minimal theme. The theme provides a number of things:

    • It removes Drupal's default theme Bartik which comes with layouts and CSS styles you will not need
    • It provides some minimal CSS for Drupal's administration functions and the search block
    • It includes a number of Drupal regions including the content region
    • It includes some DX8 specific code for using DX8.

    To install the DX8 minimal theme and set it as the default:

    1. Click on Appearance in the Drupal navigation
    2. Next to DX8 minimal theme, click on Install and set as default

    Do not use the DX8 minimal theme for the Administration theme. Leave this set to Seven.
