Advanced Drupal Class

Drupal: Theming and Content Management

This Drupal Custom workshop will cover populating the site with content and theming it - two of the most common initial tasks for site administrators who have Drupal up-and-running.

The morning training block will be spent learning best practices for adding and editing content, importing content from other sources, and creating new content types (using the Content Construction Kit) to capture richer, more useful data. It will also cover the various ways to discover and display the content, including basic setup of a content's display page, taxonomy pages, and custom content lists (using the Views module).

The afternoon session will focus on what goes into theming a Drupal site; starting with the basic anatomy of a theme and then, depending on where the students' interests lie, will go in-depth into any number of theming topics including overall page layout, theming individual content types, views, blocks, or overriding existing template files and functions.

The Theming and Content Management course is a natural next step in your Drupal development if you joined us for our first NEFLIN workshop in April. If you weren't able to attend that class, then you should have a good working knowledge of what Drupal is, and the basics of adding simple content to a site.

Optional: Bring your laptop with Drupal already installed to follow along and make it hands-on.
