From the Publisher

The Drupal 7 Theme Creation Manual takes you step-by-step through the process of creating a completely new Drupal 7 theme. It assumes that you already know how to install and create a basic Drupal 7 site on a server using cPanel, assumes that you are using a Firefox web browser, and assumes you are using a desktop or laptop with Windows based software. No assumption is made about anything else and you do not need any prior coding knowledge as the book takes you line by line through all the required code, teaching you as you progress through the book.

The book will explain how to set up a WAMP test site on your own computer and how to install Drupal into it. It then takes you step by step through the whole process of creating a brand new mobile first, HTML5 CSS3 compliant, responsive theme with two sidebars. You will learn how to change the layout and style of your site using HTML, PHP and CSS, and how to make the site display differently on desktops, tablets and phones, and how to use different styles for different types of pages. By the end of the book you will have not only created your own theme, but more importantly you will have a good understanding of how all Drupal themes have been created.

We can easily compare prices across online stores. But those virtual shopping carts are yielding a growing heap of real-life cardboard boxes—and boxes inside boxes inside boxes—that come with costs of their own. In the past decade, the dollar value of the shopping we’re doing online has almost tripled, according to the Department of Commerce. In the first quarter of this year, e-commerce sales were nearly $93 b

    How This Company Creates Instant Websites

    When photographer Benjamin Edwards wants to update his website, all he has to do is load a new picture onto his phone; drag it into his web host, The Grid; and voilà, the program loads it onto his home-page and rearranges and recolors the entire site to work with the new image. For his work on behalf of charities such as World Relief that takes him around the globe, the technology is a godsend. “Since I’m out in the field so often, I don’t have a ton of time to work on my website,” says Edwards, who is based in Bend, Ore. “I can be in Bolivia, shoot a photo and, if I have cell service, it can

    How to Build Your Personal Website in Less Than 10 Seconds

    Back in August 2012, Strikingly co-founder David Chen had one goal: launch the simplest, fastest web builder around. His team succeeded in its first iteration, creating a service that used customers' Facebook profiles to auto-fill a basic website in one click. But competitors such as Sitefly work that way as well. So to distinguish Strikingly from the Facebook pack and enable it to build more robust websites in one step, Chen in January switched his platform so that it pulls from LinkedIn instead. "Facebook doesn't have enough information for us to use and create a functional website, while Li
