Monday, August 10, 2009 | News | Open Source

Packt is pleased to announce Plone 3 Theming, a new book, which helps web designers build new templates as well as refactor their existing ones using Plone's templating system. Written by Veda Williams, the editor of the documentation section of Plone.org, this book is a step-by-step guide which will help create a customized Plone website and ensure that the concepts are well understood.

Plone is a free open source Content Management System (CMS) that’s built on top of the Zope application server. Plone lets non-technical people create and maintain information for a public website or an intranet using only a web browser. It is because of its superior security and advanced back-end, that it holds a technological edge over many major CMSes.

Plone 3 Theming provides designers with handy tips and tricks, thereby simplifying the theming process. This book provides a sneak peek into the future of Plone's theming system as well as provides useful information which will help designers create a robust and flexible Plone theme. Designers can then set up a productive development environment which will help them build a quality theme product.

Designers will learn to embed multimedia in a Plone template and make use of Plone’s powerful tools such as graphic design, Subversion, etc., to make theming a lot easier and efficient. Furthermore, they can deploy and test their theme by following best practices and bringing into use Zope 3 components for building powerful Plone themes.

Professional web designers who work with Plone and want to create their own unique look and feel for a Plone website will find this book useful. For more information, please visit http://www.packtpub.com/plone-3-theming-create-flexible-powerful-professional-templates/book
