Book Review: Drupal - Creating Blogs, Forums, Portals, and Community Websites

Filed under
Drupal

I am sure anyone who has anything to do with computers have heard of a system administrator. But not many would be aware of a content management administrator or more specifically a Drupal administrator. Drupal is a very popular open source content management system which is used by 10's and 1000's of individuals and firms alike to host professional websites which integrate blogs, forums, portals and so on. Considering the sheer number of uses that Drupal can be put use to, it is not surprising that one needs to be aware about the innumerable configuration parameters which are made available to the person in charge of administering the site. This is especially true if you want your site running on Drupal to work in a specific manner.

I found the book titled "Drupal - Creating blogs, forums, portals and community websites", authored by David Mercer and brought out by Packt Publishers to be a good introductory book which aims to walk the uninitiated person in setting up Drupal and making it work for him.

The book is divided into 10 chapters spanning 300 pages.

Full Story.

Leftovers: Software

  • gtkmm now uses C++11
    All the *mm projects now require C++11. Current versions of g++ require you to use the –std=c++11 option for this, but the next version will probably use C++11 by default. We might have done this sooner if it had been clearer that g++ (and libstdc++) really really supported C++11 fully.
  • Pixman Baking ARMv6, PowerPC 64 Improvements
    Pixman 0.33.2 RC has many new ARMv6 optimizations, bug fixes for PowerPC 64-bit, and various other fixes and enhancements to the MMX code.

  • MusicTube Review - Use YouTube as Your Source of Music
    MusicTube is a very interesting music player designed for multiple platforms using YouTube as the music source. It's not made for locally hosted music, and you can't add other online sources, but YouTube is a huge resource.
