This is a short documentation on what I found while trying to modify Red's appearance.
First, you'll need to create a new theme. This is in /view/theme, and I chose to copy 'redbasic' since it's the only available for now. Let's assume I named it .
Oh, and don't forget to rename the _init function in /php/theme.php to be _init() instead of redbasic_init().
Now you'll probably want to alter a template. These can be found in in /view/tpl OR view//tpl. All you should have to do is copy whatever you want to tweak from the first place to your theme's own tpl directory.
