So, what are the very best Drupal examples..
(and no posting your own site)
Mine would have to be:http://www.musicforamerica.com/
What if your own site is the best example you know of? :)
Seriously though, I have always liked http://www.urlgreyhot.com/ I assume it is run on Drupal because I have seen the author posting here and creating modules/themes.
... and by the way whats that little robot toy? Jean Luc Picards first crib toy?
i think it is drupal also from what i know!
i also like it :)
visit this site www.fashionata.be it is 100% customized drupal site
What module are you using fot the right sidebar, to add the commersial adds?
/naprapat, Jörgen Magnussonwww.naprapattorslanda.se
Of course it is running Drupal, look at the URI. :)
Actually http://terminus1525.ca is the most impressive I have ever seen, but it must have been a heavily-hacked Drupal they are running there, so urlgreyhot got my vote.
the most recent version of terminus is /almost/ vanilla 4.4.x . there are (obviously) some custom modules, but the bulk of the customization is in the terminus.theme (which is a slim 1698 lines of code ;) )

wow. drupal continues to amaze me.
wow terminus1525.ca really is a nice drupal example
both terminus and urlgreyhot demonstrate a lot of Drupal potential. and here's another site with a nice design: cialog.

I want this theme!
Check out WoobleLab: Online Community for New Media Artists. Just saw it a few days ago. It looks very Drupal like, yet, aesthetically pleasing.
Thanks for the vote cel4145! It's nice to get some positive feedback after just launching. I just added a video (mpg) tutorial to the WoobleLab site today...trying to get more of that "immersive" feel over time. But, I have to say, I'd vote for the terminus folks...that site is REALLY nice. Speaking of which, I like the flash integration on the home page that they've got...I tried that in the "mission" area but no luck...more to figure out how to do!
this website is down for a long time.
Can you tell me who designed that site (cialog) I need to have my new Drupal site redesigned.
We could certainly help you out, my designers blow most of this work away ( IMO )

Any idea how to create those mouse over effects on his main links in the header?
CSS Creator's light weight multi level menu
which i suggested to be included in drupal core
:) Got the idea from here:
You can check out http://www.zofiart.com.
My client is still trying to figure out what should go on the front page, and the site will obviously have more text content, but the galleries are cool, and you wouldn't know immediately that it is Drupal (except for the urls, which I left in the default style). Please make comments for improvement so that we can fix it up nicely.

Another great Drupal powered site:
I like ekosTV.com. They've got a simple, Drupal interface...and great content.
Perhaps this link which does NOT link to a Windows Media Player video would better display the site.
Test site...always start with a test site.

The Windows Media Player page has been removed, and the drupal page is now the homepage, so the link should load you right into the drupal-ness now.
I vote for terminus1525.ca. That is really slick.
- matthew | nautis.com
I must say that's probably the coolest looking Drupal based site out there. I also like http://www.nautis.com/, it's a neat design and really clean.
My drupal website
I second that! Several of the other sites are very striking and demonstrate some truly neat examples of what can be done with Drupal.
However, nautis.com just pulls everything together into an original and visually appealing package, with a very elegant character and overall "feel."

But that is not a Drupal site.
indeman from india
yea, powered by wordpress *lol*
Though it's powered by wordpress it would make a brilliant drupal theme.
One that has gone under the radar (that also provides really great content) is:
Anyone know what theme that is?
--You talk the talk, but do you waddle the waddle?
--You talk the talk, but do you waddle the waddle?
The theme is called Lincoln's Revenge Version 2.
The author is Chris Messina (FactoryJoe), the same guy who wrote the SpreadFireFox theme, the Democratica theme (part of CivicSpace's distro of Drupal), and the new theme on CivicSpaceLabs web site.

It is a superb theme by FactoryJoe.
just tell me the name of theme u have used or give me the link sothat i can use the same theme.
That post was almost 6 years ago. The site he linked to has changed but here's the original theme: http://drupal.org/project/spreadfirefox
I am impressed with what http://www.floatleft.org/ has done with drupal:
Any idea what templates they base these sites on?
I had to check some standard URL's to find out that these are truly drupal sites. Whoever did this, Excellent work. I dont think the themes from these sites is or will be public though.
gee, thanks for the compliments...but we should really be thanking the drupal developers and support community, as it's drupal that allows us to create such sites. so, thanks drupal!
to answer a couple of questions...all of our sites are drupal based and our themes don't really start from another theme. marieke, the floatleft designer, creates a mockup of the visual design, and then i implement it into a theme - typically starting with the code from theme.inc (theme_page, theme_node, etc...) and manually building the css.
you're right that the actual themes aren't available to the public, as they are custom designs for our clients. but if anyone has any questions on how we've done something on a particular site, let me know (http://drupal.org/user/5253/contact). i'd be happy to share ideas and code.
You site is one of the coolest one I've seen, and sure terminus guys have done a great job too!

I like this one a lot:http://code0range.net/
It's a typical 3 columns-site, but the colors are great, it's very readable, and I like the way they use the user-avatars and the images for the categories.
just loaded ourmedia.org and it looks good. it is currently under a slashdot so checkit in a day or two.
I'd like to see the best examples available now, in march 2006, can you tell me where I should look?

We've done some content writing for SEOposition.com - http://www.seoposition.com - over the past few months. Their SEO Position theme for 5.1 that will be called "Alek 2.0" will be launched to the Drupal community over the next few days. But overall they have one of the cleanest Drupal themes we've seen.
I like FergusonPhotography.com
It is a nice, dark theme based on the 'Foundation' theme.
Very clean site Design Inspiration Gallery. Hard to believe its drupal !!
Why is it hard to believe it's Drupal? There's a lot of nice Drupal sites out there.
See my Drupal articles and tutorials or come check out life in the Coulee Region.
Of course, just like any other framework lots are great. Just the majority of Drupal sites that I have seen are not very polished in presentation. Usually due to 'lazy' theming and not taking the extra time to create image inputs, things like that
That's why it seemed like such an odd comment. The look of the site is all on the themer's head. Has very little to do with Drupal.
I agree, but you also have to admit that many are not that great looking, or stick to mods of garland etc
Maybe cjreport.com also deserves a mention in this thread.

anything by sugar publishinghttp://sugarinc.com/
i really like the content ;)http://www.alpinestars.com/
surprisingly i submitted both the sugar and mtv sites on another forum and other members tore them up!! saying they where poorly coded and horrible sites and drupal was a bloated CMS :(
an extreme customisation and styling
Drupal Technical Lead
This is a great site
Can we create similar sites by customizing themes only?
or/and we also need to customizing modules and creating custom codes
in order to do that?
I have created two drupal based web sites by modifying themes, XHTML and CSS
to create some unconventional layout,
but hardly achieve what your example is.
How many hours did you spent layouting it?
I realy like your work.
Thank you. Unfortunately the 'green' promo is ruining the site haha... their contracted a seperate company for those however. Hours I cant really say, probably a good 30 - 40 hours tweaking CSS/Design elements. It is a hybrid of internal intranet data pushed to this site, and then of course Drupal nodes. The entire site took around 140 - 150 hours, still some fixing up to do though.
"no posting your own site", hu?
I don't know if anyone's realized it, but this post was started in 2004.. :)
I'm guessing he didn't want people just promoting their own sites.
haha thats stupid..

how about these two
I know it's not fair to promote your own site. But since philipk started his inconsistency from the very beginning:), I'd like to show you a very gorgeous sample of newspaper site. The great thing is it is totally unfinished, it's just a rejected sample site, haha, it will simply remain there for the proof of concept on skinning some great modules, and most of all it's all based on zen_classic. I have made other better sites, of course, but as said earlier it's just unfair to promote your own site, right?

Well I think www.vraaghetlotte.nl is the best site. The different ways to search and find in the database are great. Peter, you rock!
For a dummy like me it is easy to manage, i love drupal!
My biased opinion:
Nothing more innovative, and it's quite nicely designed: Streetread
And Streetread Mobile (also Drupal powered)
Streetread is a financial news aggregator
Forgot to mention: Internet Explorer 6 isn't welcomed on the main site. Too complex for the host of IE6 bugs.
i have try many example site but not any one open, plz give some drupl example site url
wow...this is an old thread. hardly any of these links work, and some are really not good examples of the power that is Drupal.

Can you tell me, whether that forum is custom built or you are using some ready-theme???

This is a website created to assist potential graduate students.
The site was designed specifically for undergraduates but anyone is welcome to join. It showcases some of the best modules drupal has to offer.
Alnds, the task / status ribbon at the bottom is really nice - was that custom development or a module?
Never mind, for anyone interested it is http://drupal.org/project/wibiya for the task / status ribbon.
Why dont you check for the showcases which showcase the best drupal websites?

What about Coulee Region Online? Pretty demonstrative for social sites, nice gradients btw.
My latest book page: autochange role with rules using drupal/facebook connect authentication
I posted it above when someone was asking for a forum example. Over all, though, I don't think the site is a best Drupal example. There's still much work to be done before I'd consider it worthy of showcasing. :)
We're never satisfied!
Seriously though, I think your site would be good to showcase perhaps as a starting point for teaching hobbyist developers, such as myself, how to develop a social driven Drupal Site.
It looks almost textbook- not a bad thing...
Nah, this isn't just not done in the sense that there's endless tweaking. There's actually big chunks of functionality that need to be finished. Once it's done, I'll be writing quite a bit on what I did and how I did it to help others out.

How about www.sniget.com? We just launched it recently and it was built with Drupal completely.
Totally drupal powered. Always a work in progress.
