9.2. Customising a Drupal theme for ProsePoint

This section suggests areas in which a generic Drupal theme can be further customised for better integration with ProsePoint. None of these are mandatory, they are all optional.

Expanded and new content types
ProsePoint expands upon the default Drupal content types and adds additional ones. When developing a theme for use with ProsePoint, theme designers may choose to implement special themeing for nodes of these types.
Visual editor
ProsePoint uses a visual editor purposely written for ProsePoint. It is advisable for theme designers to include themeing for the editor such that the editor is as close to wysiwyg as possible. Please refer to the default ProsePoint theme (The Morning After, Rev 2) for an example of how this is achieved.
Composite layouts
ProsePoint editions can be configured to display content in multi-column layouts. When developing a theme for use with ProsePoint, theme designers may choose to include themeing for these composite layouts.

Note

Prior to ProsePoint 0.08, a ProsePoint theme would use a local tasks block to replace the Drupal local tasks tabs. That is no longer necessary. From ProsePoint 0.08 onwards, this requirement can be dropped.
