Block Theme options in the block configuration page.

#D7CX: I pledge that BlockTheme will have a full Drupal 7 release on the day that Drupal 7 is released.

BlockTheme allows an admin to define tpl files for standard block templates and provides a select box on the block configure form so the user can select a tpl file to use as opposed to having to override the templates by block ID.

See an excellent video by Bob @ mustardseed on how to use this module (6.x version)


  1. Enable the module

  2. Drupal 7.x: go to admin/config/user-interface/blocktheme

    Drupal 6.x: go to admin/settings/blocktheme
    and add entries like:

    customblocktemplate|My Custom Template
    superblock|My SuperTemplate
  3. Create tpl files in your theme directory like:

    Drupal 7.x: block--blocktheme--customblocktemplate.tpl.php; block--blocktheme--superblock.tpl.php

    Drupal 6.x: blocktheme-customblocktemplate.tpl.php; blocktheme-superblock.tpl.php

  4. Optionally, use the new $blocktheme variable in your block.tpl.php or block-*.tpl.php files to change template behaviour depending on the chosen blocktheme value


Go to the configure screen for any block and select the appropriate template.
