Join us at 6:30pm at The Network Hub for our VanDUG Meeting.
Simplified Layouts with Subthemes and ThemeKey
Arne Olafson, will be presenting solutions to "get around" some of the theming difficulties presented by inconsistencies in presentation of web data for different technologies and browsers, using the ThemeKey module. It is very effective when used with the zenophile module for creating Zen subthemes. From creating different menus and links, to block layout, the themekey module offers an opportunity to keep our awesome Flash applications without leaving blank space in the iWhatevers, and to allow simplified content for the dreaded versions of Internet explorer and other non-standards-compliant browsers.
In addition to his drupal addiction, Arne studies and plays music with an enthusiasm somewhere between religious devotion and obsession.
Attendees are invited to share their experience by giving a 2 to 4 minute presentation on any topic of interest to the Drupal community. If you want to use a laptop to show a website or control panel please be sure you have the necessary cable to connect to an overhead projector.
Bring your questions on anything related to Drupal from how to do something technical in PHP to what modules are needed to implement a feature you want.
