Fusion installation instructions (Drupal 7)
Step 3, continued
- Enable the Fusion Accelerator module. Go to the module administration page (e.g. http://www.example.com/admin/modules or click the Modules link at the top of the screen), scroll down to the “Fusion” group, check the box next to “Fusion Apply”, “Fusion Apply UI”, and “Fusion Apply Rules”. You may not need to enable “Fusion Grid Tools” unless you’re planning to do custom grid development. Click “Save configuration”
- Visit the theme administration page (e.g. http://www.example.com/admin/appearance or click the “Appearance” link)
- If you’re using a pre-made Fusion theme, click its “Enabled and set default” link under the theme
- If you’re not using a pre-made Fusion theme and will be building your own, instead click the “Set default” link next to the Fusion Starter theme
- Scroll to the bottom of the page and click “Save configuration”
Give yourself permission to access Fusion’s controls.
If you’re not the site’s “superadministrator” (that is, the person holding the first account created when you installed Drupal), you (or someone with sufficient permissions) need to explicitly allow you to use Accelerator’s features. Go to the user permissions page (e.g. http://www.example.com/admin/people/permissions) or click “Permissions” next to “Fusion Apply UI”, scroll down to the “Fusion Apply UI” section, and check all boxes under your user role.
Warning: All users with this role will get permission to access Fusion Apply’s controls and change the look of your site! If necessary, create a separate user role first on the user roles page (e.g. http://www.example.com/admin/user/roles). Visit drupal.org for more help with user roles.
That’s it! You’re now ready to configure your Fusion theme!
