  • We’ll take a quick look at the list of requirements again to determine any theme layer elements. (Handout)
  • We’ll add comments onto the new content to show how anonymous (not logged in) users can contribute content to your site.
  • First we will take a look at Drupal’s core modules. Then we’ll also go to drupal.org and take a look at the thousands of contributed modules available and show how to find what you need and download code. Sometimes searching for modules on Google is easier than digging through the module list.
  • In Drupal customizing the look and feel is called theming. We’re going to change the default theme from Drupal’s default of Garland to the Zen theme. Zen is a bare bones, but sustainable and best practices approach to theming. It’s a starting point to build your theme from. After installing Zen and reviewing how the site has changed visually, we’ll add on a Zen sub theme called Austin. We’ll show how we can make adjustments to some visual elements by modifying our own version of the Austin theme.
