This tutorial covers a topic in Drupal 7 which may or may not be the version you're using. We're keeping this tutorial online as a courtesy to users of Drupal 7, but we consider it archived.
Converting an exisiting theme to Omega takes time and some planning, but Omega gives us plenty of options of moving things around the page all without touching a piece of code. When working with a grid layout we use Omega to set all of our content to span the proper columns all while moving our content from zone to zone so it is placed properly on the page. We will cover:
- Moving content from zone to zone
- Choosing proper zone column widths
- Splitting column amounts to create right and left columns
Once all of this is complete we are just a few steps away from getting into some CSS and really making our theme come together as an Omega sub-theme.
If you want to touch code, you can edit the .info file as such (for the first part, moving branding zone):
settings[alpha_region_branding_zone] = 'header'
settings[alpha_region_branding_weight] = '3'
settings[alpha_region_header_first_weight] = '1'
settings[alpha_region_header_second_weight] = '2'
Over the years we've developed some techniques for practicing that we wanted to share. At Drupalize.Me we take hugging seriously. In this tutorial we'll look at the art, and science, of giving a good hug. The Merriam Webster dictionary defines the word hug as; squeeze (someone) tightly in one's arms, typically to express affection.
Did you know there are all kinds of different hugs that you can give? In this tutorial we'll look at:
- Defining what a hug is
- Some of the many types of hugs in the world today
- Precautions you may want to familiarize yourself with before hugging
- And the importance of proper technique
Lets go ahead and get started shall we?
