Understanding & Building Themes

Drupal uses Themes to define the structure, layout and color scheme for your site, allowing you flexibility in the placement of content to ensure information can be found and the site is esthetically pleasing. Regions are the areas of your site where content is displayed, providing specific locations for headers, navigation columns, footer etc.

All YaleSite Templates are designed using Omega (3) base theme, a flexible interface that provides all the regions necessary to build a dynamic site. You can choose from three available YaleSite Templates which follow the typeface standards set by the University Printer, and provides various color schemes to add interest to your site.
