This page is really for Drupal newcomers, like myself. While I have been in corporate IT for over 15 years and have lived, breathed and eaten Drupal every day all day long for about seven months now, I am still very much a newbie. Here is a list of things that you can accomplish by reading this blog:
- Install Drupal in a VM environment on Linux
- Learn about the mechanics behind Drupal – xAMP
- Learn about tools that will help you code/develop for Drupal
- Implement Mollom Anti-Spam
- Implement Drupal’s Multilingual capabilities
- Facebook login – SSO
- Drupal Core Upgrade Procedures
- Twitter Integration
- Find books on Drupal
- Read about some of the MANY Drupal quirks
- How CSS works on Drupal
- Drupal Theming
- WYSIWYG Editors
With the exception of a few commercial products (Windows and IFlychat.com, a few books) everything that I discuss here is available for free. The tools, utilities and everything else that I use are Open Source.
All the things that I accomplish can be seen on the site that I am developing.
This is a community site for those who have the unfortunate privilege of being involved in the Criminal Justice System of the state of Tennessee in the southeastern Unites States. I have been involved in prison ministry through the Catholic Church and was inspired to help those who are often in the most need of aid.
