Theming Basics For Drupal

The Lullabot Learning Series continues with a hands-on look at Drupal's theming system. In this 2 hour and 44 minute long in-depth video guide, Nate Haug, Jeff Robbins, and James Walker explain the steps for translating a web design into a Drupal theme. The video explains Drupal's design vernacular, concepts, and special needs. The team shows how to associate the proper CSS & Javascript files, add all of the necessary regions, and control the HTML output through page and node-specific templates. You'll learn about the best tools and strategies for controlling the look and feel of your Drupal website. This video covers the basics of Drupal theming. Drupal's more complex theming topics are covered in the Advanced Theming video which pairs with this video and finishes the complete implementation of the 960 Robots theme used in both videos.
