New websites - one from ZEN

Hi folks,

Stranger Greg Albright here. Just wanted to let everyone know about two new websites I just launched.

1) http://indyrotary.org
This site was a collaborative effort from the great folks at Promethius and yours truly. So far, so good. This site features a lot of OG capability because we have over 20 committees in the club. I spent a lot of time editing CSS on this site and still find small areas that can forevermore, be tweaked. It's received great response thus far.

2) http://planinconline.com

Sub theme of Zen used for OoglieBooglie.com

We recently launched a sub theme of Zen for a client here in Virginia Beach, VA -- http://www.oogliebooglie.com. OoglieBooglie is a place where artists and art lovers gather. Artists create designs that they think would look great printed on a T shirt. OoglieBooglie and the members vote for the designs they think are the best. Then, OoglieBooglie prints the design on T shirts and sells them on the site. The artist then gets paid $2 USD per shirt sold on the site for an entire year.

A more detailed post is available at http://drupal.org/node/509602.

New Adobe.com article: Building Drupal Zen sub-themes with Dreamweaver CS4

The third article in my Drupal series for Adobe.com is out now. This article covers Drupal Zen Sub-Themes, including Dreamweaver tip(s) when working with Drupal themes.

"When asked why I would recommend the Zen theme versus a core theme such as Garland, I answer, Zen was built to be a seed for your tree—you plant the seed, water it, and watch it grow! Garland looks nice, but is not documented well and has custom page template code that should not appear elsewhere. In short, Garland is just not right as the basis for a theme; the Zen theme is."

Theming Getting Started - Part 1 -

This post acts as a reference to drupal theming.

Basically there is one choice as far as theming is concerned, you should choose whether you will start from scratch or you will install a 'ready' theme and customize it a bit to your preferences. This part will cover the second choice while the first choice will be covered in part 2. I must state again that this tutorial will act as a reference and only.

I am personally fond of choosing a theme where basically only the layout structure exists in its css.I am aware of two such themes.

CS4 Party site launched with Zen Theme

Earlier this week I launched http://cs4party.com to promote the celebration our Los Angeles Adobe User Groups are holding for Adobe. I used Strata 3D, exported to H.264 video which I converted to FLV with Flash CS3, and made a SWF header to play and loop the FLV video. Zen was used entirely, so I have a cs4party sub-zen-theme that is literally my first public Zen theme, ever. FYI, the site is Drupal 6.

Redoing my themes in Zen

(cross-post from bloggy)

I started doing Drupal themes with the idea that we could have simple, minimalist themes that can get the job done with little images.

Color.module helped with the eye-hurting colors and Zen just provided an excellent starting point to make a very high quality theme.


After having taken a peek into the Zen project and drinking the kool aid the syntax markup and quality is blue skies over here. Color.module and Zen work well in combination. :)
