Grok Drupal Theming

Day:  Tuesday, 24. august 2010
Time:  09:00-09:50
45 minutes (+15 minutes Q&A)



Topics covered include:

  • Core templates and how they work together
  • Most-used templates and the variables available
  • Overriding templates for common use cases
  • The Drupal design patterns you will need to design and theme for (whether you like it or not)
  • Changes between Drupal 6 and Drupal 7
  • Modules that make theming easier and/or more powerful
  • The parent-child theme thing
  • Working with module templates, including Views and CCK
  • Gotchas, tips and tricks

This builds upon my session at DrupalCon San Francisco earlier this year. While I will touch upon concepts in my blog post, A Peek at Drupal 7 Theme Changes, this session assumes you have not themed for Drupal much before (or it has left you stymied).
