OK - just to clarify:
1) My new theme is "\My-Beauty", a copy of the "Themes\Beauty" folder. I've configured "My-Beauty" according to the Designer's Guide
2) I create a copy of "\Plugins\SevenSpikes.Theme.Beauty" folder in Plugins
3) I rename this folder to "\Plugins\SevenSpikes.Theme.My-Beauty"
When the My-Beauty theme is selected in back-end, the system automatically picks up the new "\Plugins\SevenSpikes.Theme.My-Beauty" folder, and no further configurations are required?
It would seem to me some adjustments might need to be made to:
a) SevenSpikes.Theme.My-Beauty\Description.txt (e.g., SystemName: SevenSpikes.Theme.Beauty)
Thanks for any further help.
You do not need to change any of the a), b) c) or d) . The change required is only for the Themes folder that you have done, so that the plugins use the My-Beauty theme folder for styling and functionality. Then if you need to edit some styling you should do this in the My-Beauty folder.
Hope that helps!
