Converting themes to drupal

This group should probably have more organizers. See documentation on this recommendation.

A working group on converting themes / templates to Drupal, from other CMS like Joomla, or Wordpress, or from HTML open design templates.

1 - We can make a quick convert to drupal
2 - We can make the job easier by making templates for css declaration to use with drupal, for comment, nodes etc.

Any ideas to make this work easier are welcome!

Panles with Tranpsarent PNGs

I am hoping someone can help me with a small theming issue, and that I am not posting this question in the wrong place. I am trying to use Schillmaina's transparent PNG trick (at as a custom style for panels. I have tried converting it, but don't have it quite right. I'll attach my style sheet ( file for the panels module) and see if anyone can figure out what I am doing wrong. I think it has to do with how I am trying to split Schillmaina's template across the title content and the panel content itself.

Converting a custom wordpress theme over to drupal

I am trying to convert over to Drupal from WordPress. Everything is fairly new to me too. Anyway, I have a wordpress theme that I REALLY enjoy, and do not want to sacrifice it. I have already migrated over all of my comments, articles, and pages, but the theme is the last thing to go, then I will do my full conversion. I didn't know where else to ask, how in the hell do you convert a theme? I read the walk-through's, and most do not apply to me simply because I do not have half of the files that you have to merge. So, can someone please help me on converting this over....

Releasing "Web Application", a Proper Web2.0 Theme

I just finished converting a GPL theme to drupal, if you're an aspiring Drupal Ninja this will be a good theme to learn about custom theme options, clean code, and good coding practice!. I added short comments to the css file to explain some of the more obscure methods in there.

Excerpt from my blog:

I normally don't announce theme releases anywhere but this one is
special. I've worked hard to make this theme work well and the xhtml
template I was porting was well-coded as well.

This drupal theme
will be a nice addition to the drupal theme repository, it doesn't look too
flashy and it can easily be used as a theme for small business
websites. What makes this theme special is it's high flexibility and
configurability, this theme properly supports 1, 2 or 3 columns
layouts, and it gets even better... The themes layout width is
completely configurable, you can set it as a fixed width in pixels or
as a fluid width, that being a percentage of the browser window width.
You can also set the width of the main content area. The main content
area is set to be a percentage of the total layout width, and when you
change it the sidebar(s) will automatically assume the leftover width.

Enough talking, heres some stuff in list form:

Bullit proof

  • Doesn't break any drupal admin pages, or get broken by admin pages
  • small backend interface improvements
  • all structural and contextual layout blocks are flex-height (don't break when upscaling the font)


  • Theme Images weigh a combined 1,6kb
  • Style.css weighing in at 4.4kb
  • Output HTML is just a minimal (full html output size varies with content)

Custom Theme options:

  • set a fixed or fluid width layout
  • adjust the % of
    width the main content area will take up and the sidebar(s) will
    automagically resize to fill up the leftover space
  • subheader and navbar region are dispensable, to get an even cleaner layout!

Supported native drupal elements:

  • 1,2 or 3 columns!
  • main content / sidebar width configurable through theme options
  • blocks
  • primary menu
  • secondary menu
  • logo (including optional ie PNG fix for transparent backgrounds)
  • logotext
  • slogan
  • mission

Tested to work with:

  • Internet explorer 7
  • Internet explorer 6
  • Firefox
  • Opera 9
  • Safari (Safari for windows)
  • Netscape 9

    Drupal 5 Theming by Ric Shreves Review

    Drupal 5 Theming by Ric Shreves

    If you are a designer wanting to learn Drupal, this book is for you. It is written by a designer so there are no programming sections full of code. It shows you how you can customize Drupal's HTML and CSS in detail. The book has a good amount of screen shots, charts, and other visual aids that really help the right side of the brain.

    Free Drupal Themes Wanted!

    I'm peach, or Jurriaan, from All Drupal Themes and I'm having some trouble finding good themes to port and release to the community. I've already ported several themes but it turns out there were some problems:
    -Apparently people were more interested in 3-column themes
    -Some of the themes were not deemed useful at all
    -Most good looking themes I find are Creative Commons licensed, which makes sense from the designers point of view, but unfortunately they are not allowed on I was reassured when I signed up for a cvs account that I must not upload CC2.5 licensed themes, only GPL.

    I've created this post to communicate with the Drupal community, for whom I make the themes, and hopefully some people have good ideas for themes to be ported to drupal! If anyone has a GPL theme in mind please post it in the comments sections.

    If you know of a gorgeous CC licensed design, it's also eligible for a free drupal port but I will put it up with my free drupal themes department but it won't show up on

    Looking forward to your input!
