Drupal Themes

Drupal Themes form part of the Drupal content management framework, on the front end. Drupal offer over 2,400 different themes that can change the website’s default presentation and design characteristics. The themes are developed through standardised formats that can be generated by common third party theme design engines.

Theme developers design their site by using front-end techniques like HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. To create a fast and efficient process Drupal provides a framework as a starting point for users who then only have to alter specific templates. Drupal provides a basic HTML template for elements on the site that can be overridden by a theme, this then alters the generated markup. Themes are generally used for three main purposes such as changing the HTML markup of any element on the site; adding CSS styles to alter the presentation of pages, and to use JavaScript. Generally, themes make changes to HTML markup and simultaneously create new CSS files to develop layouts and overall presentation of pages on a site. JavaScript alters the user’s interaction with the content of the page.

Themes are written in the PHP Template engine and in the XTemplate engine but the PHP Template is more common. These engines, provided in Drupal, reduce the complexity of the process and make it more flexible for the user. The system uses the template engine to clearly differentiate HTML/CSS languages and PHP.

Our development teams have developed Drupal Themes for a number of projects in the past and would be happy to discuss any potential projects you have in mind for the platform.

Do you have a project built on Drupal that you’d like to migrate to another platform? Or do you have something you’d like moved over to Drupal? Check out our list of migrations for more details about how we work.
