Although I am fairly confortable with using the plain editor to write HTML code, most of my customers aren't. They do not have technical background and feel difficulty just to look at a buch of opening and closing tags. WYSIWYG comes in handy here to provide an easy to use solution for non tech guys.

In my experiences, there are two things that most of my customers concern: "an editor with enough menu buttons" and "a tool to upload image". So when I see a Drupal 7 sites without them, the first thing in my mind is to get them installed.

On Drupal 6, my choice for the WYSIWYG editor is FCKEditor. CKEditor is the successor of FCK with better visual and functionality and it works well with Drupal 7. IMCE is a great tool for users to upload files. In the following sections, I will describe how to install and tune CKEditor and IMCE. 

Installing CKEditor

CKEditor is not a separate module in Drupal 7. You have to install the WYSIWYG module and then install CKEditor as its library.

ST Ocarina is a Drupal 7 theme for commerce. We try a different layout for this theme by not showing many products on the front page, instead, we focus on the slideshow and product carousel. The product list and product detail pages are clean with some highlights for price info and Add to cart button.

PretaLove.com is a start up business who specilizes in premium Prestashop modules and Prestashop themes. Although Prestashop is a shopping CMS itself, the PrestaLove team found it very hard to build a completed commerce website with membership features and many CMS functionalities.

With a team of geeks and limited budget from the begining, PrestaLove can not afford to develop a website from scratch. Instead, they have adopted one of our Drupal 7 themes, the ST Mizmar, to provide great looking website make use of many great Drupal modules. Therefore they can focus on developing products and launch their services to public in a short time. 

The new site is compatible with different devices from smart phones, tablets to laptops. This responsiveness feature is the key feature of our Symphony Drupal 7 themes. The point of displaying nicely in mobile devices plays a crucial role for any website to succeed in the upcoming time.

As you already know, Drupal 7 had its debut on January this year. It has been 8 months until we can come up with the first Drupal 7 themes (ST Khen and ST Mizmar). I have faced many challenges such as lack of modules and a good base theme. Changing a Drupal platform requires a completed reboot of technology and thinkings.

Omega base theme

One crucial point of our Drupal 7 themes is mobile device supported. For Drupal 6, my headache was making the theme compliant to major browsers. Now the heachache is doubled since we still have to keep the theme look best in major browsers, we also have to make it look best in mobile devices. With the huge growth of hand held devices, mobile supported displaying will be soon a must for any websites.
