Here we’ll take a look at Views’ powerful templating system and discuss how you can clean up the underlying markup, generate dynamic IDs and classes or even alter the output.

EDIT: Benjamin Doherty (bangpound) and I are now co-presenting and he will discuss his Semantic Views module after.

Hans and I have talked about merging my Semantic Views session into this one. My session would have been very thin if spread out to be 45 minutes, so he wants to expand this to 1 hour and include me.

  • Theming Examples
  • Architecture of the Drupal Theme Layer
  • .info files

Learn from how to ease Drupal theming frustration with Zen 6.x-2.0 from me (JohnAlbin), the maintainer of the Zen project and a top contributor to Drupal 7.

  • Layout — building complex layouts with Zen Columns or grids
  • z-index — you need more hammers
  • IA — building navigation
  • Accessibility — open access can be easy
  • Q&A — ask me anything (Drupal-related, please)

Surprisingly, this will be the first presentation I’ve given about Zen in over 2 years!
