The ThemeKey

Sat, 17 Sep, 14:00 – Room 3 „cocomore“
Presentation in English, Intended for: Newbies

Define simple or sophisticated rules to automatically select a theme based on current path, taxonomy terms, language, node-type, or other properties. You will be surprised how much you can do with ThemeKey and Drupal's theme inheritance:

  • 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
  • ...

Additionally the new features of ThemeKey 7.x will be shown:

  • individual theme per user (an advanced replacement for a drupal 6 core feature that has been removed from drupal 7)
  • control different theme switching modules (like OG theme or mobile themes)
