STICKY: Theme development forum guidelines

The theme development forum was created to aid those who are developing themes for Drupal. This forum is not for issues you may be having with contrib themes. Issues with contrib themes should be placed in the issue queue of the theme in question. Please respect this.

If you you have drupal installed already and are seeking a theme, have a question about a specific theme and what it does or if it will fit your use case, please place your questions in the Post installation forum.

Drupal 7 Theme from Scratch Documentation

Rather than relying on a hundred or so browser bookmarks to reference, I've chosen to document everything I've learned online on how to create a Drupal 7 Theme from scratch. It wasn't easy and it wasn't fun and I don't wish to do it again. So I posted a web page for myself and my colleagues and now I'm sharing it with the community. Feel free to use it as your reference guide and I'd love to hear your feedback.

Drupal 7 Theme from Scratch

site/user not showing the logon


I am a Drupal-newcomer who had for a various reasons a splash-in entry into Drupal-world.

I have quite successfullly deployed two new sites in a couple of days. Because of the time window, I chose (at least to start up) the fast road, converting the HTML-code more or less straight into page.tpl.php.

The first site works fine but the second one doesn't show the login window, even with /?q=user or /user.

It says though "User account" on page title, but no form is available.

Field suffix


I need to customise certain text fields in the node edit form by appending a suffix (ex. adding KG after a weight value).

The integer field won't work because not all the values should be numerical. It's easy enough to add the suffix with DisplaySuite or other modules, however I need it displayed also on the node edit form, so the user is aware that the suffix will be automatically added.

Thank you.
