Drupal Design Cheatsheets

Cheat sheets, or reference cards, help you remember things quickly and serve as a quick reference when recall is waning, such as during those long endless nights of frantic photoshopping, or is that just me?

Whether you need to learn something quickly or need a quick refresher on how to do certain tasks, cheat sheets allow you to do either one with relative ease. Print them out and decorate your workspace or save/bookmark them for later use, whichever way suits you best.

Web Typography Resources

I love typography, seriously, I do. Can't say I'm all that good at it, which seems odd since I've been staring at all my life. There must be more to it than just looking so I went in search of a few great websites about, you guessed it, web typography, and came up with my short list.

Adaptive Themes to ship with Built in Administration Theme

We are happy to announce that we have developed an administration style "theme" that will ship with all professional Drupal themes for sale on this site. The important thing to note is that it's not a separate theme, but built into the base theme and is toggled on and off in the theme settings.

The admin pages are styled more like a traditional CMS admin section, so the normal front end theme does not get in the way of content management or administrative operations.

Crowd Sourcing Drupal Themes - Lets get this party started!

Today AdaptiveThemes.com relaunched as the first crowd sourced commercial themes provider for Drupal. The concept is simple, designers upload designs and themers port them to Drupal, everyone gets paid a slice of the pie each time the theme sells. That slice is split evenly between the designer and the themer, with a small portion deducted for business and running costs.

The first two weeks of 3rdWorld themes, my new project aiming to port hundreds of Wordpress and Joomla themes to Drupal, has been a resounding success. Traffic to the site has been more than I ever could have hoped for and I've had some really great feedback, not only from happy end users, but also from the original authors of the themes.
