Drupal keeps getting better

Filed under
Drupal

Drupal is a modular content management system. It allows a user or group of users to construct Web sites, blogs, or forums by providing the framework for users with little or no PHP or database experience. It grows more popular with each new release because it becomes easier to use each new release. Drupal 6.0 (and 6.1) were recently released after a year of development. The new features and improvements make for an impressive content management platform.

The beauty of Drupal is how highly customizable it is. The more PHP you know, the more powerful it becomes. But even if you don't know any PHP you can build and run a great-looking site by utilizing Drupal's many built-in and contributed modules as well as the various themes. Some of the sites running Drupal include Warner Brothers Records, Popular Science, and The Onion. If you need help, you can find lots of handy documentation and a friendly user forum on the Drupal Web site.

Another app review

I suppose you took that drupal thingie for a spin before writing a review about it, right? Like half an hour trying it? Half a year maybe?

re: Another app review

I played with it on a test machine on and off about two (or threeish) weeks. Why?

The only reason I haven't upgraded this site yet is cuz some of the necessary contributed modules I use haven't been updated yet.

Why you ask?

Should have added emoticons

I was actually just joking. I spoke about Drupal in general. Smile

re: drupal

shoot, I been using drupal here for over 3 years on this site.

Unimpressed with Ubuntu 16.10? Yakkety Yak... don't talk back

Before I dive into what's new in Ubuntu 16.10, called Yakkety Yak, let's just get this sentence out of the way: Ubuntu 16.10 will not feature Unity 8 or the new Mir display server. I believe that's the seventh time I've written that since Unity 8 was announced and here we are on the second beta for 16.10. Maybe that's why they named it Unity 8. Whatever the case, Unity 8 is available for testing if you'd like to try it. So far I haven't managed to get it working on any of the hardware I use, which goes a long way to explaining why it's not part of Ubuntu proper yet. Read more

Reiser4 Implements Mirror & Failover Support

Edward Shishkin, one of the last remaining Reiser4 developers and the one who has been leading this out-of-tree file-system the past few years, has implemented logical volumes support with support for mirrors (in effect, RAID 0) and failover support at the file-system level. Shishkin quietly announced on Sunday, "Reiser4 will support logical (compound) volumes. For now we have implemented the simplest ones - mirrors. As a supplement to existing checksums it will provide a failover - an important feature, which will reduce number of cases when your volume needs to be repaired by fsck." Read more

Exactly What Is OpenStack? Red Hat's Rich Bowen Explains

You've probably heard of OpenStack. It's in the tech news a lot, and it's an important open source project. But what exactly is it, and what is it for? Rich Bowen of Red Hat provided a high-level view of OpenStack as a software project, an open source foundation, and a community of organizations in his talk at LinuxCon North America. OpenStack is a software stack that went from small to industry darling at warp speed. It has three major components: The compute service runs the virtual machines (VMs), and it has a networking service and a storage service, plus a dashboard to run everything. OpenStack is only six years old, and was born as a solution devised by Rackspace and NASA to solve a specific problem. Read more
