I'm coming from WordPress CMS and right now (to be honest) I'm a bit overwhelmed by the (seemingly) complex Drupal theming/content management system.
I have a website with the following pages (I've simplified it a bit but that shouldn't be a problem):
- Home (contains 3 containers with text/lists that should be editable through the CMS)
- About (editable text)
- Jobs (lists all available job offers, also editable)
I want to start my theme from scratch. I have my html.tpl.php where I have title and meta stuff; then I have the page.tpl.php with my layout. That layout is the same for every one of my pages; the only thing that changes is the content inside my content-div.
How and where do I code the structure for my "Home" page? Is every editable text container a region to which I assign a block I created? Is my "Home" page basically a node whose code should be in a extra node--[home].tpl.php file?
I googled a lot, but I couldn't find good instructions on starting a theme from scratch. All the tutorials I found only changed some basic things in a theme or did sub-theming but there was nothing that could show me how to structure my site.
Maybe someone can help me or point me to a good tutorial; coming from a WordPress background i'm very confused right now.
