Drupal 7 Simplifies Web Content Management

Filed under
Drupal

While Drupal isn't the most popular open source content management system (CMS) available today, its focus on deep management and customization features ideal for complex sites has led it to be used on some very large and popular sites, including many busy news sites and WhiteHouse.gov.

But when it comes to ease of use and flexibility, Drupal has lagged behind more popular competitors such as Wordpress. However, with the release of Drupal 7, the open source CMS has significantly overhauled much of the core of the product and has taken some significant strides towards becoming a more user friendly -- but still powerful -- CMS.

Installing Drupal 7 is fairly painless and the CMS can run on any system that can run PHP and MySQL, which includes both Linux and Windows systems. Upgrading from version 6 could be a difficult task, given the many changes in the core of this release, especially if your site has a lot of custom code and configurations.

  • Interview with Wolthera
    My name is Wolthera, I am 25, studied Game Design and currently studying Humanities, because I want to become a better game designer, and I hope to make games in the future as a job. I also draw comics, though nothing has been published yet. [...] After I played a lot with MyPaint, I heard from people that Krita 2.4 was the shit. When I went to the website at the time (which is the one before the one before the current) it just looked alien and strange, and worse: there was no Windows version, so I couldn’t even try it out. So I spent a few more years having fun with MyPaint alone, but eventually I got tired of its brush engine and wanted to try something more rough. When I checked Krita again, it had two things: a new, considerably more coherent website (the one before this one) and a Windows build. Around that time it was still super unstable and it didn’t work with my tablet. But MyPaint also had tablet problems, so I had no qualms about dual booting to Linux and trying it out there.

    So, my project is titled: Better Tooling for Baloo. Let me begin by explaining what Baloo is. According to its wiki page it is "Baloo is a metadata and search framework by KDE." What exactly does it mean? Baloo is responsible for providing full text search capabilities to KDE applications. It doesn't end there it also provides searching on basis of metadata of various types of files. To acomplish this it indexes file contents and metadata using various plugins ,called extractors, to handle different types of files. It then exposes the data it has indexed with the help of various API's. So thats a very high level view of how it works. Now, my project, as the title states will provide better tools for Baloo. These tools will mainly be:
