Identify and Theme Components


Once all of the elements are in place, it's time to get down to the real work of theming the components. In this lesson we will:

  • use our style guide and checklist to find each component
  • check to see if the style looks "right"
  • troubleshoot broken styles so that each component looks as good as the designer's original, static files

By the end of this lesson you will be able to identify elements on a rendered Drupal page which do not have the correct styles applied, determine the source of the problem, and alter the markup or styles to correct the output displayed in a browser.
