There are many reasons to integrate your Drupal site with Google map (GMap). You can create a business directory with company contacts and locations, or a list of local restaurants with directions. Good news is that it can be achieved using Gmap and Location Drupal modules. And we will show you how to use Gmap and Location modules in Drupal in this article.

Demo of GMap in a Drupal site

Let's take our Drupal theme ST Pipe as an example. Basically it is a restaurant review website. It shows restaurant information such as images, contact details and a Gmap block to show directions to the location. Very nice way to make the content more appealing to users.

Ubercart raises its heat with Drupal increasing trend. The ST Quena theme - our new Ubertcart theme - is all about simplicity and elegance..


A sleek and modern design, it uses a minimalistic color scheme based on the yellow/black or yellow/white combination to create a sophisticated feel. The contrasting colors are particularly eye-catching, while varying black/white shades in the background generate a sense of depth and sophistication, at the same time augmenting the stronger-colored content on the front. The theme is available in two color options: the black-yellow combination is particularly powerful, while a white-yellow look brings a different feel of smoothness to the design.

Content boxes are grouped into columns on two sides, creating a focused visual effect. Rounded corners give the boxes a neat appearance even with dense information inside, making the whole website looking highly focused and...

This is ST Nagara, our latest Drupal newspaper theme, inspired by the famous giant BBC. Drupal is an excellent base for News Portal/Magazine websites as can be seen with The Onion or PopSci. Unfortunately, we do not see many impressive Drupal themes in this category until the presence of ST Nagara.


Taking the best parts of BBC and fill out the rest with consistent look, you can enjoy a smart grid base layout, enriched typography and various color options of Nagara.

Although it does not have drap drop feature of like BBC has, but it is the only thing we miss in this release. Drag drop feature will definitely be the primary feature when we build Nagara II.

Drupal has some very good modules to deal with the 403 - 404 error pages. This article is about how to use Drupal modules to customize 403 and 404 pages.

Error page does not have to look plain and aweful

Why should we bother? Among pages of a website, the 403 (access denied) and 404 (page not found) error page seems to have least attention. However, it comes a little bit annoying for users to see an unwelcome page. I found frustrating when doing google for some keywords, clicked to a link but ended up with a page not found. Some times it's caused by system changes or article archiving. But for any reason, this could cause users to leave the site immediately.

Here are some solutions which Drupal provides...
