  3. Our use of Drupal • Late 2008: our first Drupal 6 site • October 2009: duke.edu • November 2011: our first Drupal 7 site

  4. Drupal 7 Upgrade Overview

  5. Drupal Theme Best Practices • Always use a child theme (or sub-theme) • See #1 • .tpl files are for markup, not logic • Make use of pre-process functions • Don’t go crazy with contributed modules. • Use Drupal’s Methods to add css/javascript to your theme • E.G. conditional stylesheets • drupal_add_css(path_to_theme() . '/css/ie7.css', array('group' => CSS_THEME, 'browsers' => array('IE' => 'IE 7', '!IE' => FALSE), 'preprocess' => FALSE));

  6. How Easy is creating a child theme?

  7. Copy files to sites/all/themes

  8. Edit the .info file

  9. Ready for Customization

  10. Which Parent theme do I choose?????? • What does your site need to do? • Be responsive? • Conform to ‘the grid’? • Change layout/colorization/look-and-feel based on context? • Does it need to be accessible? • Other special aspects?

  11. Some Starter Themes to Consider • Omega • We use it. Tons of regions, and fine grained layout control from UI, and uses grid system. It’s very responsive, though it uses a layered-onion approach to responsive styles. • Boilerplate • HTML5 output. Fixed layout. Very semantic. • Genesis • Very flexible framework. Fixed or fluid layouts. Uses grid system. • Fusion • also has many configurations from the UI. Uses grid system • Zen • Trusty and widespread. Very good community support. Very handy starter themes.

  12. Other important Theme questions • Who is going to work on the theme? • A team? • An individual? • Your nephew? • Who will maintain the theme? • How will you handle versioning and delivery? • Git? • Svn? • Printed copies?
