I need to have my block title for Newsletter Signup block appear like this:

Sign up for mail

Note: Sign up = red colored font for mail = blue colored font

Please help, I know how to override a block.tpl.php file, but I am not sure what my code would be to separate the word groups and add a div or span.

Quick and dirty in your block.tpl.php:

  if ($block->subject=='Sign up for mail') {
    $block->subject='<span class="red">Sign up</span> <span class="blue">for mail</span>';

And in your .css file:

.blue {
   color: blue;

.red {
    color: red;
  • Would this go in my general block.tpl.php file or in a specific one for that block? block.tpl.php right now show: <?php if ($block->subject): ?> <div class="title-wrapper-theme"> <h2 class="title block-title"><?php print $block->subject ?></h2>

  • Works! Put it in the specific block template, see here drupal.org/node/104319
