Drupal 7 Themes by Ric Shreves (2011, Paperback, New Edition)

How these techniques interact with the Drupal environment are also well described. This quickly taught me about what I needed to know about Drupal 7 themes. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. If you are looking for a detailed description of how to build a theme, this is not your book. Anyway it covers a lot of information about fundamentals in Drupal 7 theming. My goal in buying this book was to learn to create a custom theme from scratch to gain greater control and avoid the overuse of div and class tags that are common in so many drupal templates, as well as to learn how to build on that theme by adding more pages and customizing them.


I am nearly shrwves with the shrevea but am no closer to that goal than when I started. While I was able to write a page and a half of useful notes concerning other areas, I was disappointed to learn that the book dedicated all of 2 pages to the complex topic of custom theming from scratch pagesthe vast majority of which covers the issue of nesting HTML inside the PHP as a best practice and a review on creating a css file.

I was hoping to find a systematic breakdown shrvees explanation of the page. Since a very general overview of the page. I am not intimately familiar with php syntax but am able to easily grasp the concept if it is explained even to a minimal extent, however, in that section pages large chunks of code are described as to their general purpose and not explained in any depth, such as: As the statements are all conditional, the output will only be displayed to the site visitors, if the site administrator has enabled the items in the Theme Configuration Manager” pg 76, Shreves’ complete explanation.

For a book dedicated to Drupal theming, it is disappointing that a much better, but outdated as of this writing job of covering the topic of breaking down the page. This book seems to be pretty much what I’ve been looking for – a straight-forward exposition of Drupal’s theming layer in version 7 that assumes some Web development experience and drupao builds upon the instruction through the book. However I need to note that I’m shocked at how poorly it was edited, if at all.

In fact I doubt that there was even too much proofreading applied.

Sentences routinely break at bizarre places, it can be hard at time to interpret the point of some phrasing, and there are many obvious typos as well. Given that, this book is still a trove of very helpful content as, even with all of the Drupal material online, I’ve found it almost impossible to find one source that can expose the amazing applicability yet extremely arcane structure of the theming layer as well as this book does.

If you already have some Web development under your belt but are fairly new to Drupal, I’d highly recommend getting this dhreves as at least the first step towards understanding how it all works. I own the latest version of the book.


I bought it as I was hoping that this would be better than the version that pertains to drupal 6. This, unfortunately, is not the case.

What an incredible omission! I wonder why it does not occur to the author, whenever he is writing something like “Visit the Drupal Tjemes to learn more about these important functions. See XXX”, that this is exactly the material that he should cover.

Not to mention numerous errors I’m not saying the book is useless. But I do say that you should not get your hopes up to high. This book was laid out well and logically, each chapter built on the previous chapter.

The author went over the template system, how to do different themes for different pages, recommended modules to help in your efforts, how to set up custom CSS files, and even theme functions that you can use in different content pages. This is a difficult topic, because there is so much information to cover, I thought the author did it well.
