- Hi, I'm Chris Charlton. Welcome to Drupal Creating and Editing Custom Themes. In this course, we'll explore all the tools and techniques needed to improve the design of a Drupal website by building and implementing custom themes. We will begin by building a basic Drupal website with a default theme, and getting familiar with the tools every Drupal theme designer needs. I'll go through how to control and build on top of the standard themes that come with Drupal 6. Then we'll create a custom theme for Drupal by integrating graphics and web technologies like CSS and HTML.
Finally, we'll cover the specifics of applying custom designs to various pages and elements in Drupal, known as nodes and blocks. I've been teaching how to develop web pages for almost a decade, and manage one of the largest Drupal user groups in the world. From my experience, Drupal is the most exciting web platform I have come across in my career. It is my favorite solution for building websites, so let's get started with Drupal themes.
