In this beginner level session, we will discuss the basics of theming a site in Drupal. This session is deigned for people who are new to Drupal and want to learn the first steps how to make it look the way that they want. You may want to have basic knowledge of HTML and CSS and a dash of PHP to feel comfortable, though it's certainly not required.
Using a base theme (Fusion), we will discuss the following:
1. What the different theme files mean (tpl.php, CSS, .info, etc) and how they interact to make a Drupal theme work.
2. How to make changes and override what Drupal gives you
3. Useful tools and modules to help make theming easier
4. How to not be afraid of the template.php file
5. Other awesomeness!
