About Base Themes
When you create a work space for a customizable product, you can select a base theme and product theme. These control the basic look and feel of the pages a user sees when they configure the product.
A base theme defines the home page for the customizable product. It is the container within which the product theme pages display. The base theme has a thread bar you can use to navigate between product theme pages. Two types of base theme are provided:
- Base Theme with Auto Pricing. When the user selects an item, its price is updated immediately.
- Base Theme with Manual Pricing. The pricing of items is not updated until the user clicks Update Price.
Upgrade users: If you do not select a base or product theme, default themes are used. If you do not specify groups or controls, intelligent defaults are used. These defaults replace Configuration Assistant in release 6.x and lower.
