Drupal Terminology

Some of Drupal’s terminology will be new to you. You will hear terms like node, view, module, core, theme, blocks, paths, teaser, weight, taxonomy, and so on. Part of the Drupal website planning process is connecting the everyday language of requirements to Drupal’s way of meeting the requirements. To learn more about Drupal terminology, visit http://drupal.org/node/937.

Knowing What to Theme

In Drupal, the theming process considers each element or feature of your site. For example, if you use Views to create a table displaying specific bits of information about a series of pages, then you might need to theme that View if your default theming is not designed to handle it. Also, modules sometime come with their own theming instructions. You might want to override them. Unless you know what modules you will be using, you might not be able to complete your theme.
