ok so i messed with zen and looked at tao
i read a bunch of stuff that says change the .info and .tpl.php file but what files do i change to get my site up and running
i have the html and css files of my site ready (seperate from drupal) but how do i integrate them into these themes/sub themes
i noticed in zen theres like a million css files do i really gotta chop up my css file? and the html wheres that go? btw i noticed in alot of videos people say you gotta "search" and "replace all" of certain phrases and stuff in some of the files. which files do i gotta do that too and how do i know which ones
can someone please sum all this up for me and tell me what goes where and what connects to what
i seen a bunch of videos on theme but most of them either dont explain why certain things are done or just talk alot and still leave you with nothing
i guess what im asking is how do you guys make your own themes whats the process?
