Drupal can be complicated, but with that comes incredible power and flexibility. The Drupal theme system creates the perfect storm of complexity, UX and control from the interface. Drupal theming isn't easy, but even the layman can do incredible things through pointing and clicking. And if you want to do things The Drupal Way, it's vitally important to learn to let Drupal do what it can from the interface (before even thinking about touching code).

Dear Chapter Three,I'm in Drupal 7 and have Apache Solr running on my Pantheon site and we need to customize the layout of the search results page. We've been using Panels for every other page, so we'd really like to use Panels here as well. We noticed that there is an existing panel page template titled: "search-apachesolr_search", but when we enable it our searches always return no results. What's the deal?Thanks!Ricki

Dear Chapter Three, I recently had a project where I was tasked with selecting the "Tabs" style for a particular Panels region. I clicked the cog wheel for a particular region, but all I see is "Add content". What am I doing wrong? Is there a place to enable Panels styles? Do I need another module? Cheers!Jayson

If today is January 18th, 2012 then you may see something different about our logo. I'm proud to announce that we at Chapter Three are joining thousands of others to publicly show our opposition to SOPA and PIPA. Not sure what SOPA and PIPA are? In short, they are separate pieces of pending legislation which threaten many legitimate websites that many of us use on a daily basis.

We all have to admit that CSS has some shortcomings. Thanks to the adoption of CSS3 and increasing standardization between browsers, this is getting better. During a recent course on responsive theming, I discovered a neat trick to trigger a click effect on elements in a mobile browser. It utilized the common css pseudo-class :hover, but when you add some CSS3 transitions it starts to get really interesting.

I consider use of a base theme to be Level 2 theming because this should mean that you've either grown enough or failed enough as a themer to want to do things the Drupal way. That means no longer hacking core and saving yourself a ton of hassle. You can let Drupal do the work for you and still make the theme your own!The Evolution of a Themer

In Level 1 we introduce the anatonmy of the theme and the files you'll find within. We walk through creating your own basic theme and introduce the concept of sub-theming.In the "evolution of a themer", this is where the fun really starts. Up until now you may have downloaded a contributed theme from Drupal.org, maybe you hacked the theme a bit to make it your own but you've never made your own theme. This blog post is all about reaching Level 1 and creating your own basic theme from scratch.
