Drupal uses a series of nested template files to build out the rendered HTML pages we see in our browser. The template file page.tpl.php holds markup between <body> and </body> tags. We talked about the nested nature of template files in Lesson 3: Theming by Component.
In this lesson we will:
- create the file page.tpl.php
- add the relevant markup, and CSS classes for our grid framework
- insert relevant PHP variables so that Drupal can render each of its page components.
By the end of this lesson you will be able to create, or adapt, a page.tpl.php file to suit the conventions you identified in your style guide.
