What about responsive Admin Themes? Is something usable already out there?

Try Adminimal - Responsive Administration Theme for Drupal. Clean and professional design, focusing on minimalism and user experience. Great for Clients.

I made the mistake once of purchasing a "premium" responsive theme not too long ago. Unfortunately the theme was absolutely unusable unless you were building your site exactly as the theme had it laid out. The theme had friendly URLs embedded in its logic, relied on specifically named content types, etc.

So when it comes to 'premium' themes I'm always wary.

Have you evaluated any of the code?

You know, you are completely right. Out of these, I only evaluated Incredible and I wouldn't go as far as saying it entirely matches your description but it has its flaws. By this i mean there is a bit of theming still involved - either to correct some issues or to expand some stuff to content types that the premium theme does not have by default.

For instance for each Content Type you create you need to either go into its node.tpl.php and make some changes or make them in the main node.tpl.php file for future CTs.

So it is a gamble. However, ThemeBrain themes I think they are good. This theme on this site is a TB theme and worked very well out of the box - of course you still need to extend it if you want different things than it provides you - which I did - but all in all I think quality work.

However, that's not to say I have problems with the rest. I like Incredible, working on a project with it and the best part about these themes is that they cost next to nothing - so you still get valuable stuff for the price you pay even if it implies some work ahead.

Hope this answers your question

I'm wondering if you (or anyone) has any experience with these themes on a site that relies heavily on Panels.

In general the panels layouts won't be responsive out of the box. A panel ends up in the #content region of the page.tpl.php file. You'd have to look at how a particular theme handles the responsive functionality and apply that to your panels.

For example, even using a theme like Zen with Panels, I had to work with the zengrids.com framework in the sass (.scss) files to tell the theme how the panels respond.

Well a way to make panels responsive is to add the proper css classes to its components - columns, regions and stuff like that - they are essentially a collection of divs themselves.

These classes then make them responsive - works well with grids and stuff like that (either fixed or fluid)

Hey, I'm a relative newcomer to Drupal 7 and decided to purchase the incredible theme you recommended. Once I bought it though it looks like there isn't a .info file to be able to install the theme through the admin panel. Can you talk me through what you did with yours?

Thanks in advance

Hey there, I installed Incredible myself. You cannot do it from the admin. As far as I remember it comes with a full Drupal installation version (drupal files, theme, and modules + sql to be imported in the database) and a version that you can install on an existing site. But it comes with a documentation as well.

Good luck.

I like these themes which are really simple and responsive.

Very good Drupal theme examples!

Thanks for sharing this huge collection of themes !! Here, I would like to share my experience with you, I have experienced a software for making themes, TemplateToaster and it worked great for me.Thus, users may use this software for making their own themes.

Great themes.

I like a lot these templates.

Nice themes. Thanks.
