A presentation on how to do Views theming using both CSS and template files.

Theming Your Views Presented by Mark W. Jarrell Drupal Username: attheshow June 27, 2009 Http://

What are we talking about? ✤ This is a “how to” session ✤ Building a view (the quick and dirty version) ✤ Modify the look and feel of the view output using some basic CSS ✤ Working with Views template files in order to completely change the code that comes out around your fields

Why do we need to do any theming to what Views creates? ✤ Make your site look individual and stand apart from the crowd ✤ Control! You may not like what you get out-of-the-box. ✤ You may need some HTML in your list of items that Views isn’t generating for you. ✤ Example: “I wish I could automatically capitalize my node titles in this list.”

What do we need to make it happen? ✤ Not much! Fairly straightforward. ✤ Views module ✤ “Advanced Help” module advanced_help ✤ Build a custom theme or modify an existing one ✤ Firebug Firefox Extension US/firefox/addon/1843


Further Reading Links ✤ “Views 2 Theming” ✤ Install the “Advanced Help” Module Then visit http://[YOURSITE]/admin/advanced_help/views ✤ Click on “Theme: Information” when looking at a view and really read what it says there. Photo On Intro Slide: Http://
