This is a special interest group dedicated to improving and expanding the Drupal theme system including theme functions and templates, CSS, markup, and how contrib modules add in their functions, CSS, and markup.
for example, we'll take stock of the location and number of CSS files and discuss if the architecture can be improved through emerging frameworks like Object Oriented CSS.
We will consider the questions "What do themers need from Core in terms of CSS? Module developers? SEO specialists?" and "What's new in CSS? What does Drupal support? What's the roadmap for CSS support?"

Is there a way to theme pagers? I'm fairly new to Drupal, so I hope this isn't a dumb question. Specifically, I've designed a themed pager that would augment the pager used by the views module, but not sure what to use to implement my theme- a theme hook? theme hook suggestion? template file?Read more
I would like to style the site name with two different styles. (i.e. Site Name) "Site" would be a large bold font and "Name" would be a smaller normal font. I tried splitting it into site name and site slogan which would allow me to style them separate but reverted due to an SEO compromise and split link. Any suggestions?

I'm working on creating a drupal 7 clone of LaunchRock.com, a way to create a pre-launch page. Basically it's a a simple page with sign up for a mailing list and some social media links for fblike, tweet, googe+1. The layout is focused on a simple box in the center of the page with an adjustable background image.
So, my question is: how would I make it possible for people to add their own background image?
(For anyone interested, the project is current hosted here: https://github.com/markwk/backdrop (theme) and https://github.com/markwk/comingsoon_features(features).)

Over the past few months we've been working away behind the scenes on the Drupal Design site prototype. There are quite a number of technical considerations when building a new drupal.org sub-site so these needed to be ironed out before we could really show this off.
I've posted a number of screen grabs to Notable and we can use these to collect comments and feedback on the various screens throughout the site - you can leave general comments here but if you're wanting to leave comments about the actual screens please post those to Notable.Read more
For a long time I developped sub-theme (mainly based on http://drupal.org/project/clean).
The main advantages were a good structure, good class/id selectors, pre-themed admin forms. But what about
- performance ?
- unused preprocess function consequences ?
- css "over charging issues" ?
- (sub)theme development speed ?
- hidden difficulties ?
I googled to try to find a discussion about it, but I didn't get any luck on that.
So question is : what do you think about this ?
Drupal Design sub site will allow uploading of design files for sharing with other users. There are three main sections to the site:
- Challenges - where users contribute and collaborate on design problems for drupal.org, drupal projects, drupal core and so on.
- Assets - where users can upload and download high quality layered design files such as icons, templates, textures and so on.
- Discussion - where users can post comps for discussion, collaboration, feedback and so on.
Here is what I need to do:
1.Check the Creation DATE of the most recent node (article)
2. Create a view that lists all the nodes such that node.created = Creation DATE.
In other words, I want to be able to pass a variable date to the filtering criteria. I know I could construct it from scratch using 2 db_query calls but I am looking for a more intuitive way that does not require a lot of customization.
I have been trying to use hook_view_query_alter and add_where() but with not much success because I do not want to create a module just to do this.
The way we have been approaching changes to core templates has, at least afaict, been a piecemeal affair - we change one or two templates at a time working through the various markup issues until such time as we have some broad consensus and ta da, here's our new template.
This bottom-up-esque methodology seems reasonable because we we are not overhauling the entire system at any one time and are just looking to adjust or tweak parts of it.
I think this has worked OK in the past, however I tend to think this methodology has a few drawbacks.Read more
