Diazo Theming

Diazo is quickly becoming the standard tool for Plone theming. It allows you to take some static html pages, and import Plone elements into those pages, which dramatically reduces the learning curve.

We offer many ways for your organization to take advantage of Diazo:

1. Learn about Diazo Theming from our blog

We've created several posts on how to use Diazo. You can see the most recent in the column to the right. There are also other Plone How-To articles and other Plone resources on the Plone page.

4. Hire us to create a Plone theme for your site
