Drupal is a free and Open Source Content Management System, which is written in PHP and is used as a back-end system for at least 1.5% of all websites worldwide ranging from personal blogs to corporate, political and government sites. It is also used for knowledge management and business collaboration.

Drupal 7 Theming Cookbook starts off with recipes that address the basics of Drupal's theme system, including regions and blocks, and then moves on to advanced topics such as creating a custom theme and using it to modify the layout and style of content. Furthermore, users will learn many techniques for dealing with Drupal’s templating system, which will allow them to create themes that surpass even the existing Drupal and contributed modules.

Using this book, readers will be able to improve their knowledge of the basics of Drupal theming, to customize the look of their website, to create custom themes, to style and manipulate the content of their website, to manipulate images on the fly using the Image API and the Image module, and to jazz up the design of their site by incorporating JavaScript elements.
