  • More on Drupal Theming this week • Theming with Skinr! (Jacine Rodriguez) — Right after this session, right here in this room. • All your html are belong to us (Morten) — Wednesday at 4:15pm. • Sprint on Thursday — Free! Open! Friendly!
  • !"#$%&"'()*%+,-./01 Grok means to understand so thoroughly that the observer becomes a part of the observed — to merge, blend, intermarry, lose identity in group experience. Robert A. Heinlein, Stranger in a Strange Land
  • <h1 id="title"> !"#$%&"'()*%+,-./01 </h1>
  • <h1 id="title"> !"#$%&"'()*%+,-./01 </h1> How Drupal displays content (templates) How to start theming Other things to consider
  • Assumptions • You know HTML/xhtml • You don't know PHP (but if you do, we won't • You know CSS 2.1 hold it against you) • You are at least getting • You understand some basic Drupal to know CSS 3 (or want to) architecture concepts • Drupal theming confuses • You want to learn this or mystifies you
  • Some PHP required • Mainly to printthe page title). e.g., $title (for pre-defined variables … • You can do a lot in the "preprocess" and "process" functions. • You can avoidof you. totally scarescopy living daylights out it if it Just stick to the and paste from '<?php' to '?>'.
  • Drupal 7 is more complex than Drupal 6 ...but it's also more simple
  • Anatomy of a Drupal "page" • xhtml, CSS, images • Content presented via templates • JavaScript
  • The Drupal theme • CSS files • Image files • Template files • JavaScript files • Preprocess and process files new! • .info file
  • Which template? It depends....
  • Every module's output also has a template file. (In theory.)
  • 42 *.tpl.php files in D7's /modules folder. Each can be copied and used to override.
  • One theme might have dozens of template files.
  • There are only a few basics. (It's not rocket science.)
  • What's inside a template?
  • html.tpl.php

  • region.tpl.php
  • region.tpl.php <div class="<?php print $classes; ?>"> <?php print $content; ?> </div>
  • So if all regions use the same template, how does Drupal know which region?
  • <?php print render($page['header']); ?> <?php print render($page['help']); ?> <?php print render($page['highlight']); ?> <?php print render($page['content']); ?> <?php print render($page['sidebar_first']); ?> <?php print render($page['sidebar_second']); ?> <?php print render($page['footer']); ?>
  • All regions in your theme must be declared, or else you get these defaults.
  • Where the heck are all these templates?
  • example.com/modules BUT DON'T EDIT THEM THERE!
  • Preprocess doesn't have to be scary
  • May I recommend.... !"!#$%& '&()*+#',-./0,&- PHP for Drupal Designers, by Emma Jane Hogbin !"#$%%&#'&()#*+,-.(# !""#$%!&'()*+*,!"!-.+"!"!///-%!&'()*+*,!"!-.+"! designtotheme.com
  • So how to go about creating a theme?
  • Create a theme from scratch, making everything • theme .info file • page.tpl.php • *.tpl.php files as needed to override core • template.php for your preprocess and postprocess • background images
  • or make a baby!
  • Sub-themes inherit everything from parent theme, except what is overridden.
  • Inheritance base.css base.css style.css style.css forms.css
  • Inheritance page.tpl.php page.tpl.php node.tpl.php node.tpl.php block.tpl.php
  • Many good base themes • AdaptiveTheme • Basic • NineSixty • Blueprint • Stark • Framework • Studio • Fusion • Zen • Genesis • Mobile
  • Create your theme example.com/themes/
  • Create your theme example.com/themes/ example.com/sites/all/themes/yourtheme
  • yourtheme.info
  • yourtheme.info name = yourtheme description = This is where you describe your theme in words. version = 1.0 ; Requirements base theme = ninesixty core = 7.x engine = phptemplate ; Stylesheets stylesheets[screen][] = styles/base.css stylesheets[screen][] = styles/layout.css stylesheets[screen][] = styles/colors.css stylesheets[screen][] = styles/forms.css stylesheets[print][] = styles/print.css ; Regions regions[header] = Header regions[help] = Help regions[highlight] = Highlight regions[content] = Content regions[page_top] = Page top regions[page_bottom] = Page bottom regions[indicators] = Indicators regions_hidden[] = indicators ; Scripts scripts[] = scripts/twitter.js

  • Points of Modification • CSS • xhtml in the template that applies • preprocess • module
  • Basics to Remember • Create your theme in sites/all/themes/yourtheme • Copy templates into your theme to make overrides • Use template suggestions to break out distinct structures and stylings • Use base theme to get a jump on things • Let Drupal do what it does best
  • Resources • Drupal 6 » Drupal 7 theming changes drupal.org/update/theme/6/7 • Template suggestions drupal.org/node/190815* • RDFa buytaert.net/semantic-web-and-drupal-video * Drupal 6
  • Get Drush! Yeah yeah yeah, I know, you don't like command line, but this will really really and for true help you save time developing so that you can spend more time designing and theming, and isn't that what you'd rather do anyway? Video to make it easy: http://is.gd/ a Ze 3 3
