Hello again guys,

I am now in developing a custom theme for liferay and well, liferay and I started off bad. And here's another one, Developer mode is not working on Liferay 6.1 Tomcat Bundle.

How do you check if you really are in development mode? I keep editing the theme files in webapps/ROOT/MyTheme-theme and the changes aren't reflecting. Even if I had to delete the css, it still sees the old css as if it were never deleted. But when I renamed MyTheme-theme to MyTheme-theme, then the site breaks.

Why is theme development have to be this frustrating?

Regards,
Francis

Well, fixed my issue by going to about:config -> network.http.use-cache -> false. That's on firefox.

Why do you put your theme in /ROOT/ ?

If you are developing custom theme then you should not put it inside ROOT folder. So if you have followed correct steps for creating and deploying theme, your custom theme will be deployed directly inside webapps folder and you can change whatever you want inside your custom theme folder directly. For more detail you can refer this link

I hope this might resolve your issue.
