Georgia Tech Drupal Themes

Drupal Version
Tags

Since September of 2013, Georgia Tech Institute Communications has provided an official Georgia Tech Drupal theme (GT Theme) suitable for all official unit websites, including but not limited to college, school, project center, and administrative units. This theme implements the Georgia Tech Website Visual Style Requirements that all official websites are expected to follow.

Please note that the current version of the GT Theme features the classic "Tech Gold" color and the "interlocking GT" logo. If your site's theme features the yellow-orange "Buzz Gold" color (as seen on our college mascot, Buzz) or still has a logo with the campanile, you should strongly consider upgrading your site to the most recent version of the theme (this is only an issue for sites still running Drupal 7.)

Drupal 9 Georgia Tech Theme

The Drupal 9 theme is best installed when setting up your Drupal 9 site. This can be done in one of two ways:

1. If you are requesting a new OIT Web Hosting account for your site, select the option for Drupal 9 Drupal Express, which will automatically install the GT Theme and other useful Georgia Tech specific modules.

2. If you are installing Drupal 9 somewhere other than OIT Web Hosting, or you want to manually set up Drupal 9 in an existing OIT Web Hosting Account, you can follow the instructions for using the GT Installer package.

Please note that in either case, you will be using Composer to manage your Drupal site. If you are not familiar with managing a PHP project via Composer, you should read up on it carefully first.

Drupal 7 Georgia Tech Theme

Editor's Note: The Drupal 7 version of the Georgia Tech theme is no longer supported.  Units are stongly advised to begin moving from Drupal 7 to either Drupal 9 or another content management system as soon as possible.

A new version of the Drupal 7 Georgia Tech Theme updated to the new "Tech Gold" color scheme with the "interlocking GT" logo was released in late 2021. Make sure you use the latest version.  The previous versions of GT Tools (2.9) and Super Block (2.9) will continue to work with the new theme package, so they do not need to be updated unless they were not already up-to-date on your site.

Drupal 7 Theme Configuration Walk-through Video

If you are new to the Georgia Tech Drupal theme, you can watch the installation and configuration of the Georgia Tech Theme section of the video recording of the November 2013 GT Build Day. This is the first section of the video and runs approximately 45 minutes.  Please note this video demonstrates the old pre-2019 theme, but the techniques for installing and configuring the theme remain the same for Drupal 7.

(Please check the "Drupal Version" flag carefully on these sub pages.  Most will relate to either Drupal 7 or Drupal 9, but rarely both versions.)
