Themes control the look and feel of your Drupal site. A theme contains files that determine the structure of your site and code that defines design elements.

Prepackaged or custom

Anatomy of Theme

Structure

  • Regions: Predefined areas where Blocks can be placed and ordered.

Skin

  • Templates: Merge presentation html with dynamic data for pages, nodes, views and other Drupal elements.
  • Style Sheets: Define how html elements are displayed.
  • Javascript: Add functionality to the presentation layer.

Color of Themes

  • The color of any theme can be changed by using the colorbox module. This can be done by installing the module and enabling it on your website. Once the module is enabled, the 'Site Information' option in the administration menu gives administrators the option to change the colors of the theme.
