It works in the current version of Novius OS. You've just have to download it in your local/application directory and install it in your apps manager.After, you will have 4 more templates: two builded with Bootstrap, 2 others builded with Fundation. You can configure them, layout and skin.If you want to create your own template, you have to create an application with a template. And I suggest you to read this part of the documentation
it sounds like a very easy to answer question, but i was unable to find anything about themes or skins. i looked into the docs and googled but i wasnt able to change the frontpage look.
Many thanks for answers
