Cleaning up Drupal 7 and standardizing themes

Switching over to Adaptivetheme from Genesis.

Have done a lot of customization of Genesis theme but Genesis core is pretty much dead ----> Last modified: December 2, 2014 

Adaptivetheme actively being updated.

Immediate updates to some sites to Pixture Reloaded.

Pixture Reloaded is a re-colorable theme powered by Adaptivetheme and inherits all its features such as mobile support, highly configurable layout, responsive menus and many theme settings.

PR in D8 has received a bit of brush up in styles, no longer has a fixed height header and is more streamlined in terms of color options. The goal has been to make a theme that is cleaner looking, easier to modify and overall less effort to maintain.

Change Pixture Reloaded fixed height header

FYI, the divs that you will probably want to change are:


look for css selectors


/* Set heights on branding and header elements */
#branding {
  max-height: 88px;
  line-height: 1;
#head-elements {
  min-height: 88px;



If you edit the style.css file in the /sites/.../files/color/ directory, it will get overwritten any time you save your configuration on the theme settings page.

Instead, you should edit the style.css file inside the /sites/.../themes/pixture_reloaded/ directory, and not in the /sites/.../files/color directory.

Then go to your /admin/build/themes/settings/pixture_reloaded page, scroll down to the bottom and click "Save Configuration".

The style.css inside the files/color/ directory is a temporary file that is made every time you save the configuration on the theme settings page. It copies whatever is in the themes/pixture_reloaded/style.css , so you should edit that file if you don't want your changes to be erased.
