Using RootCandy to create a simple interface for clients

admin theme v front endRootCandy is an administration theme specificaly developed to streamline the process of creating an admin interface for clients in Drupal. In this blog post I am going to show you what we did for our client eCommera (http://ecommera.com) and will highlight some of the RC functionality. Officialy 4,808 sites are using this theme and I am quite curious how, so feel free to leave a comment below.

Another update on Root Candy

Just noticed that I forgot to post about a version 1.0 being released some time ago. We are almost ready to roll out 1.1 version with several bug fixes and new features so I would like to summarise what has been done so far and invite testers to test latest dev version.

Rootcandy getting darker - rc3 out

We are almost there, RC3 is out and I am thinking how many RC's are ahead. One, maybe two, and then release. In the last RC, I know it's not a good practice, however I had to add a new feature, just because I liked it too much. So a new sub-theme RootCandy dark has been committed.
