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.
