The book supplies easy-to-follow instruction on the primary aspects of the Drupal framework—from basic installation, configuration, and administration to creating new functionality with custom modules and themes. Defining key Drupal terminology in a way that users and developers can easily understand, this project-based guide explains how to:
Create an installation environment for Drupal as well as how to carry out the actual installation
Build web applications using Drupal builds and profiles
Add new content to a Drupal site and describe, classify, and organize content using the Taxonomy module
Optimize Drupal performance with automatic throttling, bandwidth optimization, and page caching
Customize Drupal themes and create, install, and debug modules
The first five chapters describe how to install, configure, and administer a basic site using Drupal version 6 or 7. The next five chapters introduce Drupal profiles and explain how to get them set up and running. Supplying in-depth treatment of web analytics, including Google analytics, parsing Web logs, and node tagging, the book arms you with time-tested advice on how to monitor, analyze, and optimize the performance of your Drupal installation.
