The theme has 12 regions, some of which can be collapsed into larger ones.

Banner

Just to the right of the logo, a perfect spot to position an advert or other important content.

Headline & Featured

When both are shown, the headline region is the same width as the content area, the featured region the same as the sidebar.

If the Featured region is not used, the headline area can will take up the full available width, making it exceedingly easy to create eye catching headers for pages.

Perfect for those marketing types, less perfect for the end user who needs to scroll down further to get to the heart of the content.

Middle

A full width region currently showing the horizontal categories.

Content Top

A region just Above the main page content. Just in ace you need to add something there.

Content Bottom

A region just below the main page content - perfect to extend the content by additional related blocks.

Sidebars left & right

The right sidebar block area is 300 pixels wide - the perfect size for not only some content blocks, but also adverts. This is carried over from the original theme.

In addition to this, a new mini sidebar has been added to the left. This sidebar is 140 pixels wide.

You have the option to use one, both or neither of the sidebars, where the main content area will fill whatever area remains. For best effect, consider only using the right sidebar.

Bottom

Another full width region, this time without the white background as on other regions. On this demo site I am using it to display an advert.

Footer Left, Footer Middle and Footer Right

The names should be self explanatory. Currently there is no way to fold the regions into fewer ones.

This theme looks fantastic!
Is is correct that the headline would be the same region like content top?

No, the headline region is higher up, above the ribbon - on this page it is filled with a car picture.

There currently is no content_top but I have debated its addition. Not sure if its needed or not.

One of the first open source themes for drupal that really looks professional. Thanks.

As a quick question, is code needed to activate the horizontal categories to look the way they do on your site, or how do you do it with the blue and black highlighting? I've installed the theme in drupal to give it a test run. I created 2 demo blocks and placed them in the middle region, but they just position themselves on top of each other. Am I missing something?

All the same, brilliant theme!

A content top is always good for different purposes. :)

I have just created this page to show how the categories ribbon is added.

Thanks! and I agree.

Much credit however does go to the original artist who created the theme for wordpress in the first place.

Greetings,

Great work on the theme. I'd like to get a "Headlines" and "Featured" section in the top like the demo over at the creator of Arthemia's site... can you recommend good options for Drupal modules to accomplish this?

They are blocks. You can use the 'views' module to populate them with whatever data you wish.

These regions are amazing. All of them. Usually the regions of Drupal themes are very limited. But this theme gives you so many options. The Footer Left, Footer Middle and Footer Right regions are great, because you can completely utilize the footer separately in 3 different sections.

If you could also theme the "Site offline for maintenance" page too then that would be a bonus. But it's not that important.

Please upgrade this theme for when Drupal 7 is released too.

Hey!

Is there a way to customize the sidebar with blocks or something similar that is content dependent?
Meaning, one page has block #1, #2 and #4. Another page has blocks #1, #3 and #4. Their respective children could now have either the same blocks or different.
It's important that an admin decides which blocks are being displayed. The editor only fills in his content.

Hope that's not too confusing.

Thx for Arthemia!!

Yes, that is a basic function of blocks and has nothing to do with this theme. Maybe you should read the documentation on blocks?

Thanks, for the good articles ...I am very intiresting..

Theming the maintenance page can be accomplished yourself.

hello,

Iam making a site in drupal and using this Arthemia template.. I would
like to know how you make the "midle" menu on the demo link (
http://arthemia.theraggedyedge.co.uk/ ) - where it has the options
"arthemia free ... ", "now available for drupal ... ", etc... I want to make a menu exacly like that with 4 options (with diferent background color change (red instead of blue)- I think the color change can be made on the base css (?) ).

Chears and thanks in advance,
Rui

Hello,

I am in great need of assistance concerning your web-theme. Please contact me when you can. I have several questions concerning borders, combining regions and flowing content from pages to specific regions on the home page only. Please as soon as you can. I'm sure you are very busy, but when you can, it is very important.

Thanks,

Robert Davis
