There’s no doubt SPAM is always a pain. While a couple of different solutions are being researched, CAPTCHA is up to this point the sort of industry standard. It becomes of some importance then figuring out how you can add CAPTCHA to your Drupal forms. We’re getting this kind of questions quite often, which is how we decided to create a step-by-step tutorial and make it available via our Support Center.
Meet Genteel, a brand new, responsive Drupal theme built with elegance in mind
This October we released MarketSquare which, following Best Brand, was the second theme in a row to feature a 1200px width and the third, along with Top Hit, to come with out-of-the-box integration with Drupal Commerce.
The response has been overwhelming and the newly introduced goodness seems to be appreciated by nearly everyone in touch with us (thank you for the nice words!). Could we then take the technical robustness of these themes with the distinctly flat and trendy look’n’feel, and build something really-really chique, elegant, classy and with a touch of timelessness on top them?
More and more people nowadays surf the web via mobile devices. This essentially redefines the entire web, including the web design and development practices. Our favourite platform, Drupal, is getting prepared with the mobile initiative for its next major release and the discussions around all of this. So, it seemed like it was high time to do something about all of this on the theme level as well.
Meet Bootstrap Business
Bootstrap Business is an all-new, free and responsive theme that has been ported to Drupal as part of our ongoing Drupalizing project, for bringing top quality themes to the Drupal community. The original design has been created by Ayo Themes (check them out on Twitter too), under the name AyoShop, and has been licensed under GNU General Public License v2.0. The theme has been built from the ground up and is based on Bootstrap 3, which is currently the best mobile-first, front-end framework. And it doesn’t end here. Bootstrap Business raises the standards bar for free themes, as it comes bundled with three clean and catchy color schemes.
Rather than focusing on creating frameworks that will require an expert’s experience to build a site on, our goal at More than Themes is to provide high quality theme products, which are easy and mature for anyone to use — pro in Drupal or amateur. In light of this, Bootstrap Business is currently getting its final touches and will soon be on the way to Drupal.org (and some of your Drupal sites, hopefully). A sneak peak is already available for you to take a look at on the project homepage.
Update: Bootstrap Business is now officially out and free for anyone to use. Go get it »

Announcing MarketSquare, an eclectic theme for outstanding brands.
A couple of months ago we released Best Brand, a responsive, sober-looking corporate/business theme for Drupal. Best Brand brought two new things: it was the first new theme where we were experimenting with a 1200 px width, as well as out-of-the-box integration with Drupal Commerce. We were happy to see both of these experiments turn out extremely successful. So, it was time for something completely different in terms of looks and the use-case scenario it serves, yet equipped with all the new goodness.
MarketSquare was based on original design work of Gökhun Guneyhan whom we’ve known via Bēhance for a while now. Gökhun presented a very modern, detailed, flat and colourful artwork with bits of visual eccentricity here and there that bring a totally different touch compared to Best Brand. Yet MarketSquare isn’t just about design. It’s a state-of-the-art Drupal theme with lots of Drupal and non-Drupal related features. Here are some highlights – for the complete list please check the theme page.
Drupal Commerce Tutorial: How to send notification of an order via email to site admin
Drupal Commerce does not send an order notification email to site admin (site email) out of the box. However, there is already a rule set up to send the order notification to the user. It’s called “Send an order notification e-mail”. You have always the option to clone this rule, but instead of sending the email to the owner of the order, just send it to the admin’s email address.

The BlueMasters theme for Drupal is now responsive. And always free.
BlueMasters was the first theme we ever released back in December 2010. That was in a time when there weren’t much more than a handful quality free themes available for Drupal. Good, modern commercial themes were an even greater rarity.
Since we first saw SimpleCorp we immediately loved the great work the guys at Site5 had done. So, it wasn’t much later when we decided to take the initiative to port the theme to Drupal, as part of our ongoing effort to bring top quality themes to Drupal community.

Drupal 8 is due out later this year, and already speculation has begun to mount over what’s going to be included in the new release.
One of the key features everybody is looking forward to is the level of mobile and device compatibility that the highly experienced team of developers are expected to provide.
The history of content management systems on mobile devices is patchy at best, with no real success story to match that of WordPress on desktops. Drupal 8 will focus on this area in an effort to take the lead in this essential and growing field.
