If you're building a large website in Drupal, you're likely to have a long list of views that you're using. Often, views require some custom configuration to match a given design or to provide the user with additional information. Sometimes you want to add dynamic text above or below the view, such as the number of results, or want to create a dynamic title beyond what views lets you configure through the user interface. For example, on the McGill University Health Centre website , we decided to replace the standard "Read More" link on serveral block views with a link to a filtered search page.
What's a theme hook suggestion? It's an alternate template (.tpl.php) file that you have created to override the base or original template file.. block--[region|[module|--delta]].tpl.php
The following exercise consists in moving pieces of code around, code that I did not write myself.
Welcome to the first in what we hope will be a ongoing series of blogs that discuss the more technical side of things. Today I'd like to talk about how we theme template calls in Drupal 6, and how much it has changed from the way we did it in Drupal 5. The Theory Let's dive right in. At its most basic level a website is built from a collection of files and database entries. These files are separated into several layers, so that it is easier to make changes to the application in the future.
Drupal has been the free CMS platform for the advanced user for quite some time, and while it might not be popular as Wordpress, it has a devoted army of users as well as developers and themers.

May 12 2010 For a fair few numbers of years Drupal has had the reputation of being a difficult CMS to learn. Any web developer will tell you that. It is a fair reputation, but this does take a lot of the gloss and prestige away from what it deserves. Whereas once you manage to get beyond the initial tricky learning curve, everything falls into place and is relatively straight forward, and what you are left with is one powerful beast of an engine that can handle anything you throw at it. You either really love Drupal or you should learn to love Drupal.
