Are you new to Drupal but experienced with making websites? Do want to learn how to create a website using Drupal? This two day course shows you how to use the most essential Drupal features which set it apart from other Content Management Systems. It's strongly suggested that you take Drupal in a Day or have equivalent experience.
In two days, participants will be brought up to speed on Drupal and be ready to tackle their own project. This course is designed both for users with no Drupal experience and those who are familiar with Drupal and want to expand their knowledge and dig deeper into their sites. The course provides in-depth discussions on Drupal’s installation process and managing users, comments, and content. Participants will also review Drupal's block system and using taxonomy to categorize their content.
On the first day, significant time is devoted to creating new content types using the Content Construction Kit (CCK) and exploring field types, widgets, and the corresponding settings.
The second day is dedicated entirely to CCK and Views. Views is a powerful tool that is used to create custom pages, blocks, and RSS feeds on your site. Participants will finish the day by creating a photo gallery using CCK, image field, and Views.
Experience using and building sites on the Internet using systems such as Wordpress, Joomla!, or good ‘ole handmade HTML and CSS. An understanding of what a Content Management System does is useful. Prior experience with Drupal is helpful even if it is as little as a few days. Ideally, participants will have attended Drupal in a Day or have equivalent experience.
This two day course costs £690 (+VAT) including lunch on both days and all course materials.
