# Summary

Omega was one of the first base themes to introduce responsive layouts in a configurable manner. This allowed (and still allows) any site builder/editor full control over their layouts through an intuitive interface. Omega 5.x introduces a highly enhanced layout builder, and SCSS generation on the fly for layouts so that all processing is handled in the administrative interface, and not on the frontend.

Hello himerus. This is a personal site I am currently building (http://drupaland.eu/). I used the 8.x-5.0-alpha3 of Omega. I have found no problems whatsoever with the theme, although I have overridden many default options (mainly regions). If you have more specific questions, I am happy to answer them. Thanx for all your hard work man.

I've made some simple tweaks to the omega/README.txt that expands on the manual theme creation process. It's my first patch commit — so I'd love any feedback.

Where are we with GULP implementation. Is it too early to start on this? This is probably an area i can possibly contribute.

Will omega5 support GULP? The documentation is talking about phpSASS...?

Can anyone provide some insight on phpSass or link me. Im not seeing any development going towards a newer version of this. This is all ive found: https://github.com/richthegeek/phpsass

New to Drupal 8.

Can anyone tell me how do I create my own regions using Omega 5 to be same as Omega 3 in Drupal 8. Here is the code i added in .info.yml file. But for some reason showing in Layout Builder and is not working when i put a block in the region. Is there any a part I'm missing?

Here is my code:

regions:
  topper_first: 'Topper First'
  topper_second: 'Topper second'
  topper_third: 'Topper Third'
  topper_fouth: 'Topper Fourth'
  branding: 'Site Banner'
  highlighted: Highlighted
  banner_menu: 'Banner Menu'
  header_first: 'Header First'
  header_second: 'Header Second'
  menus: 'Menu'
  preface_first: 'Preface First'
  preface_second: 'Preface Second'
  preface_third: 'Preface Third'
  preface_fourth: 'Preface Fourth'
  content: 'Content'
  sidebar_first: 'Sidebar First'
  sidebar_second: 'Sidebar Second'
  postscript_first: 'Postscript First'
  postscript_second: 'Postscript Second'
  postscript_third: 'Postscript Third'
  postscript_fourth: 'Postscript Fourth'
  footer_first: 'Footer First'
  footer_second: 'Footer Second'
  footer_third: 'Footer Third'
  footer_fourth: 'Footer Fourth'

And here is the original Omega 5 .info.yml code

regions:
  header: Header
  page_top: 'Page Top'
  highlighted: Highlighted
  preface_first: 'Preface First'
  preface_second: 'Preface Second'
  preface_third: 'Preface Third'
  preface_fourth: 'Preface Fourth'
  content: Content
  sidebar_first: 'Sidebar First'
  sidebar_second: 'Sidebar Second'
  postscript_first: 'Postscript First'
  postscript_second: 'Postscript Second'
  postscript_third: 'Postscript Third'
  postscript_fourth: 'Postscript Fourth'
  footer: 'Footer'
  page_bottom: 'Page Bottom'

FutureITS, you also have to edit your page.html.twig file and print the new regions.
See here Adding Regions to a Theme.

@Vagelis, I was able to make the new regions show in Omega 5 by editing my page.html.twig. Now how do I add the new regions into layout builder settings. Like if you go Omega 5 theme settings > Layout Builder there are HEADER, MENUS, PREFACE etc. how do I add my new regions inside breakpoint region group.

Unfortunately, I can't help you with this FutureITS. I setup all my layouts in the sass code... I haven't build any layouts through the UI.

Hi, specially @FutureITS. Did you find out how you can do this? I have the same question.
