[Beginner] Control Dynamic Theme Selection Using ThemeKey - Drupalpond (E0.11)

A session at Drupal Developer Days: Brussels

Saturday 5th February, 2011

2:00pm to 2:45pm (WET)

ThemeKey (http://drupal.org/project/themekey) allows you to define simple or sophisticated theme-switching rules which allow automatic selection of a theme depending on current path, taxonomy terms, language, node-type, and many, many other properties. It can also be easily extended to support additional properties exposed by other modules. In combination with Drupal's theme inheritance, you can easily achieve features like:

  • individually-styled channels
  • a front-page / "splash" screen
  • a date/time-selected Christmas theme
  • mobile themes for different auto-detected mobile devices
  • special themes for "limited" or "old" browsers
  • content, user, or role -specific themes
  • indicating your environment (production, staging, testing, sandbox, … )
  • testing your redesign safely on a live server
  • ...

After a short introduction about ThemeKey, I'll demonstrate some solutions for real-world problems of site builders which could be solved by ThemeKey.
