[joomla] Workflow question

Matt:

I'm sitting here laughing because "reading the manual" is something that seldom occurs to me, 

yet is so often the solution.  As in this case, when I read the manual I find that Yoothemes offers 

a premium version of the same theme.

The difference between the free and premium is that the premium version has another style sheet file
called "extra-styles" where you can add customizations, just as I want to do.  So simple.  I'm still mildly
curious as to whether or not modifying the tk_redemption_free/layouts/template.config would have worked.
I think I will try it after I get the real client site going.....
And thanks!
 

 I'm writing it 100 times:  Read the manual, read the manual, read the manual.....

Janet Sullivan

You can also look at https://github.com/joomla/joomla-cms#L38 to see how the core templates add stylesheets.  
Have you checked with the folks at Yootheme? They may have a preferred method that might also persevere this change between upgrades.
Best,
Matt
