Theming the Contact Form in Drupal 7 (contact_site_form)

Theming the contact form in Drupal 7 is almost the same as most people did it in Drupal 6, but the one change through me for a loop for quite awhile.

function myTheme_theme() {

function myTheme_preprocess_contact_mail_page(&$vars)
	$vars['name'] = drupal_render($vars['form']['name']);

Creating Drupal Template Suggestions

Chances are that you have wanted to create a new template as you work on your Drupal sites. Perhaps the blog page needs to have some markup that varies from your typical page.tpl.php template.
