Drupal 7 Preview

Filed under
Drupal

There are approximately 38 critical issues that need to be resolved before Drupal 7 beta gets released. In this article by Trevor James we will install Drupal 7 alpha, test it out, and ultimately help to fix the critical issues and speed up the beta release.

Enhancements

With D7 installed what are the immediate noticeable enhancements? The overall look and feel of the administrative interface now uses overlay windows to present links to sections and content. Navigation in the admin interface now runs horizontally along the top of the site. Directly under the toolbar navigation is a shortcut link navigation. You can customize this by adding your own shortcuts pointing to various admin functionality.

In the toolbar, Content points to your content lists. Structure contains links to Blocks, Content types, Menus and Taxonomy. CCK is now built into Drupal 7 so you can create custom content types and manage custom fields without having to install modules

It had a dedicated following but also contained a couple of design flaws that made it slow and/or expensive to run. Add to that the fact it had a Y2K bug that manifested on 31 July 2012, after which any files created wouldn't work, and it's not surprising that it didn't become the gold standard. The last copyright date listed is 1992, although some users have claimed to be using it far longer. Read more
