Drupal 8 Theme Issues

Hi! I’m new to Drupal. Very new. I started using 7 last week, but decided to play with 8 on a new install to see if this was something we needed to use instead of 7.

I tried copying the Bartik theme which came pre-installed in 8. It works, except it seems to be missing a lot of the formatting, like the size boxes and navigation. The originally installed Bartik theme works fine, but the copy does not. I also tried installing other themes which were 8 compatible, and they’re also missing styles and formatting. The only one which works is the original Bartik theme.

Only local images are allowed.

I’m also trying to use my Drupal 7 theme and apply it to 8, but it too seems to be having a hard time. I tried adding the yml files, but I don’t think I did it right. Is it possible to move a 7 theme to 8?

Does anyone know what’s going on, or have any advice for me? All my themes seem to be missing styles, and I don’t know why.

Thanks!
Brendan
