Drupal 7 Theming – Omega

I’m getting ready to hit the ground running with theming. I have an Omega subtheme in place on Prod and Sand. It is functional enough in Prod to be left alone for now.

One thing about Omega. It’s meant to be subthemed. If you want a theme that can be implemented quickly and easily, and that looks good out of the box,  you might want to keep looking. From my experience, it may be better to plunk down $100.00 US (or o) and get a premium theme from one of the many companies that develop them. I’m going with Omega because I want to learn the process/product more so than make my prod site look pretty. But I still want to do that too.

One resource that I found helpful not only for theming but also for understanding more about the ways that the presentation layer of Drupal works “under the hood” is Drupal 7 Themes by Rick Shreves. I haven’t even finished it yet but it has been really insightful for me, helping me to understand .info, .tpl, .css and other files that comprise Drupal themes. If you need a good theme resource, check it out. and this blog. 😉

One of the good things about the Omega theme is that it is setup for subtheming. Subtheming isn’t difficult at all but why not take all the breaks that you can? Drupal is already tough enough. Plus, I chose it because of the many high profile web sites that use Omega. Here is a part of the list.

Plus, Omega is really well documented. Here are some links:
