This theme could be the last Ubercart theme before we choose a different cart module for Drupal 7. Last but not least, the theme uses a large image slideshow to highlight luxury products. Images are bordered with shadow to make them deeper and more lively. Six color options are included giving you a wide range of choices.

VietnamGapYear (VGY) is the first gap year organization established and run by specialists on Vietnam. With the help from Symphony Themes, VGY has launched a Drupal 7 website using ST Fiddle theme in a very short time.

VietnamGapYear is the first gap year organization established and run by specialists on Vietnam - the Vietnamese people themselves, focusing on education, personal growth and experience enrichment.

Gap year could be taken any period of time of your life: between your high school and university, between your university and the first job, between jobs … Its core value is true real experience of the world, engaging in meaningful work, making new friends, appreciating other nations’ culture, and above all exploring your own passion and possibilities. Gap year takers’ personal growth gives them a development advantage and the experience is surely a valuable asset.

Symphony Themes has teamed up with VietnamGapYear to produce a website in a short time. Using th...

When I looked at the Drupal statistics in Wikipedia, the first Drupal conference at Antwerp on Feb 2005 had fewer than 50 people attending. The last conference at Chicago this March, over 3000 attendees. What a huge growth. The upcoming Drupal Con in London happens this August. The tickets just started to be sold but I already feel the heat: 350 proposed sessions are submitted.

I have never been at a Drupal conference. I hope this is a chance to attend a Drupal conference, and it would be wonderful to be there as a speaker. My proposed session is "How to make out of the box Drupal products". I also quote the proposal here:

How to make out-of-the-box Drupal products?

What is out-of-the-box

A Drupal out-of-the-box package, also called "install profile", consists of collections of Drupal core, modules, themes and associated configuration settings for a specific usage. The best part of it is that you can use right after installation. Some popular Drupal install profles are OpenPublish, Drupal Commons, Open Atrium, Managing Ne...

It is already four months after Drupal 7 was released. We can wait no more, this is the Drupal 7 version of Alphorn, one of our popular free Drupal themes.

Alphorn is the first free Drupal theme that Symphony introduced 1.5 years ago. It is quite popular among Drupal community. We had many requests for the Drupal 7 theme version of Alphorn but it could not be released right after Drupal 7  was released. It is because we have to wait for some essential modules such as Skinr and Fusion.

Our desire is to build an out-of-the-box Drupal install profile with Drupal 7 core, modules, sample content and Alphorn theme. Four months of waiting, many modules are still in development and unstable. We lost patience and decided to build a theme only package first. Now it is time to...
