Theme development

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?"

How to fetch Views total number of records in page.tpl.php before views.tpl called.

See this image http://prntscr.com/7idx70 for more understanding.

I want to fetch Views total number of records in page.tpl.php before views.tpl called. Is it possible to fetch that row total before views rendered? I am also using contextual filter for this view. Views have page type display.

I have also used module https://www.drupal.org/project/views_record_count. but this will print total number of records on Views header or footer. (Not outside of views)

Help: where to find new sub-contract/freelance customers?

Hello Drupal community, I'm looking for more freelance / contract work at the moment. And I was wondering where good places were to find it?

I run my own small agency in Santa Barbara CA and I can offer the following services: Drupal module coding, theming, front-end interactivity, custom design, project management, information architecture and more.

So far I know about Drupal Groups, meet ups, and craigslist. Any other good resources for finding new clients?

Thanks!

Sebastian.

beginner responsive theme development question

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?

Changes to Drupal 8 that affect admin theme maintainers

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!

Technical solution: Alternative homepage for mobile

Hi folks,

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:

https://www.drupal.org/project/mobile_detect

And using PHP to enable/disable various aspects of the homepage when it triggers.

How can we improve frontend sprints at Drupal events?

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

What do Freelance Themers want to see in a Help Wanted post?

Hi Themers,

I recently posted a Theming Job [1] which produced a lot of spam [2], 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:

Still looking for someone to help resolve this issue, thank you!!

-==-=--==-

Hello there,

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:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blend_modes#Darken_Only

I believe this can be achieved with custom PHP using GD.

ImageMagick is not available on my server.

Thank you!
