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?"

I have a little experience working with conventional themes and css, but I am new to working with responsive themes. I have installed the Radix theme on a panopoly site and read what I have been able to find about customizing the theme. However, I have not gotten too far. So far I have not found a lot of info for beginners.
I am not sure the best way to proceed with some simple changes. For example I want to add a logo over the navbar. Do I alter the page.tpl.php file to do this? Are most changes made via bootstrap?Read more
Hi everyone, you may or may not have noticed but the sessions proposal has been opened for the Drupal Dev Days 2015.
The frontend importance is growing from a core release to an other and it's great! But the complexity is also growing, there are more and more topics and good practises to be aware of in order to be a good frontend developer.
If you are a developer and care to be able to have a discussion with your themer you also need to know that.
Happy Friday! I maintain the admin theme in Drupal 8 core: Seven. There have been many changes to Seven in Drupal 8 that affect the relationship between admin themes and modules, and how the admin UI is generated.
I've always thought that the strategy we've put in place are going to have a positive impact on maintainers of contrib admin themes, but I've never sought out feedback directly. I am now!

On a new site I am building we are using the same theme for mobile and desktop, but for the homepage I want to disable, server-side, some aspects of the homepage when a mobile client appears on our site. The desktop version of the homepage is a very fancy parallax and the mobile version will be function-over-form.
I'm considering using:
And using PHP to enable/disable various aspects of the homepage when it triggers.Read more

At DrupalCamp Ghent, we held a very small frontend BOF, with myself, Laurii, Emma.maria, and guest frontender Xano.
It quickly became a retrospective on the Friday sprints that took place at DrupalCon Amsterdam. The collective thoughts were not positive. It felt like we fell way short of our goals and potential for the Friday sprint. Drupalcon Friday sprints are about introducing people to sprinting and it feels like we failed badly at that.
Here were some of the problems:
- Newbies did not get enough help
- The few people helping the newbies did not get enough support
I have a project, Waggy Tails Pet Center, that needs a theme with 90% of the look and feel of The Good Dog and 10% of Woodside Hotels.
To explicitly clarify this is for a sub-Theme and not a Site Build.
I'm a back-end Drupal developer, so it's possible I've mislabeled a front-end term ... Also, I fully expect your input will change these requirements.

I recently posted a Theming Job  which produced a lot of spam , but zero replies showing the person had read the post and/or could follow application instructions. I thought the application instructions were insanely easy (one link, estimate, ask questions), but I guess no one read down that far?
In any event, as I still need the work done, and I apparently need to re-write the job rec., so:

August 5th 2014:
Still looking for someone to help resolve this issue, thank you!!
I'm looking for someone to help with the following. I need to set up an image process on the server using ImageCache Action. I need to get a Blend action for Darken to work using the image that is uploaded and blending it to a static Hex color value:
I believe this can be achieved with custom PHP using GD.
ImageMagick is not available on my server.
Hi There, anyone have any code written for a custom Image Style Action that will blend (darken or multiply) an image into a canvas color I provide?
I've been toying with Image Styles Actions module and I can't seem to find a darken/multiply blend mode.
I can't install ImageMagick on this server, if that's important. So I'm hoping for an Action I can load that will process the images as necessary.
Any way to do this with Image Actions or with custom code?
