Using Omega 3, systems prompts for upgrade to Omega4

I have a couple of sites using themes created with Omega 3 as the base theme. I keep getting prompted to upgrade the base themes to Omega 4. I've tried removing Omega 3 as base and installing Omega 4, which usually really messes up the design. If I'm staying with Omega 3 for the time being, should I just ignore these updates eventhough Drupal's system thinks they are critical updates.

Omega 4 is hard

As a long time omega 3 user I had to say starting with omega 4 is hard. While today we see tools that build website layouts with just drawing, we have omega 4 that is hard as hell just to install and get started.

Omega Framework, Delta, Context and the "Boost" Module

Has anybody used the Drupal "Boost" module with an Omega theme?

If you're not aware, the Boost module sets up a cache of HTML pages that eliminates the necessity of going back to the database everytime a page request is made. I'm thinking of using it for an adaptive site I've made using the Omega Framework along with the the Delta, Breakpoint and Context modules.

Omega and templates

I am trying to create a table in views which has different colours for the rows according to the value of a field in user. At present this is either white or green if the user:field_paid is set or not.
Following the video of torontowebdeveloper on youtube I have created a tpl.php file in my subtheme templates directory and a template.php in the root of the subtheme.
The tpl.php seems to sort of work but does not have any impact on the targeted row or even a field apart from removing the value of the row or field. Though I can see the class in firebug.

Rearranging panel panes based on screensize

Im creating a site using the Omega theme due to my site having to be responsive.

I needs some input though on how to setup the site based on screensize.

I'm setting up my pages with Panels. Is it possible to rearrange the panel panes as the screen size changes?

I know that I can make the regions rearrange based on weight as the screen changes and I also know how to do that. My question is:

Can I make single panel panes change from one "region" to another "region" as the screensize changes?

System/Error Messages in Omega

I've created an Omega-based theme and I'm also using Webforms within that theme. This is the first time I've used Webforms within Omega and I've noticed that System/Error messages are not being displayed on the web page after form submission or in the case of a form error. In other custom themes I've utilized, system/error messages seem to display fine for the same use case.

Does Omega display system/error messages differently? How do I get them to display on my web page?

Different background image per page URL or per view URL

I just learned Omega 3 in the past month and I'm totally a fan now. Kent Lester, another Omega 3 fan is using different background images for different pages per his awesome 1 hour and 17 minute presentation about Omega 3, See Vimeo at http://vimeo.com/38144774 I haven't yet contacted him about how he does his. The Contact page on his website is not configured at the moment (kentlester.com). (Kent, contact me and I'll show you how to make a fantastic contact page using webform module and views). Anyway .....

Block Based layout in Omega 4

Just starting out on omega 4 - which i have to say I'm every impressed by - from the outside - love the code based UI modularisation, SMACSS and serious sass/compass commitment. (I passed by on o3 in favour of zurb foundation)

So O4 is looking good, ut it's PANELS centric, and while I'm trying to be open minded here, I keep coming back to preferring BLOCKS - much out of concerns for my clients - as with http://getlevelten.com/blog/randall-knutson/how-i-learned-stop-worrying-...

Best practice of Omega Kickstart sub theming

I'm using Omega on a Drupal Commerce website. I'm not using the Commerce Kickstart Install profile, but I am using a custom sub theme of the Omega Kickstart theme (which is a sub theme of Omega)

In other words...

Omega 7.x-3.1 -> Omega Kickstart 7.x-3.4 -> myCustomTheme

What's the best practice for overriding CSS in myCustomTheme?

Here's some background if necessary...

If I look at the page source, stylesheets seem to be coming from the following places:

  1. sites/all/themes/myCustomTheme/css/
  2. sites/all/themes/omega/alpha/css/
  3. sites/all/themes/omega_kickstart/css/

Use omega to hide or show content for responsive?

Is there anything built into Omega that allows you to hide or display blocks or nodes dependent on the media queries?

Or are additional modules required for that?

Omega 4 & XHTML

I was using Omega at work, now I have to start a new project and I would like to start using Omega 4.
The problem is that here, in Italy, laws on accessibiliy forbid the use of html5, I've to use XHTML.

The question is: is there a way to "transform" omega html5 to xhtml? Simply editing tpls is not enough.

Preferred responsive menu for Omega

I know this topic has been in flux, but I wanted to check in with those of you using Omega and find out what you are using for responsive menus?

Right now we are hand-coding our menus as blocks with a UL/LI structure parent/child structure. They are horizontal with drop downs on the desktop view, and show as vertical with sub-items on the responsive.

However, we want to switch to menus that are managed by Drupal with responsive styling built in. (Possibly with a clickable Javascript box for the menu instead of a persistent menu block at the top.)

Omega Theme: Margin Questions

2 possible related questions.

I'm trying to add a wrapper around a zone: For example, on this link. I want to use a wrapper around the three preface regions so that they have a uniform background color. I don't seem to be able to configure that correctly. Is there a way? http://cci.prod2.webenabled.net/#overlay-context=node

Second quest> Is there a way to increase the size of a region to include the left or right margin space?

Thank you

Strange Omega theme issue...

I'm fairly new to drupal and omega, but I've created a few successful omega themes in virtual test sites. Now, when I go to put it on a live site, it winds up looking like the attached. No grid lines, just columns of text telling me that "This is a debugging block." I can put things in the blocks, functionality is there, but I have no option for changing the display (usually there's the "resize me" button, but it doesn't exist here). I've deleted and reinstalled omega (and the appropriate modules) twice, but that is all I get. There must be something simple I'm overlooking...
