OpenPublish is a packaged distribution of Drupal, tailored to the needs of online publishers. First released about a year ago, it has quickly gained momentum. It already has hundreds of active installations, thousands of downloads, professional support from me and my crew as well as other Drupal shops. It is the obvious choice for news publishers who want to get a head-start on Drupal.

Here is a list of the Drupal 6.x contributed modules that support rules so far.

Migrating to Drupal admin Tue, 08/03/2010 - 05:52

If you are new to Drupal, the first thing is to get familiar with it. Drupal is an open-source web application framework with a content management system (CMS) bolted to it. Drupal has a lot of power that can quickly get out of hand and become unwieldy.  So, whether you're using Drupal or not, I hope to provide you with aggregated information on the different options to convert or migrate to Drupal (a page out of Drupal handbook on migration).

Web Content Development

Web content development covers more than just writing compelling copy on pages. Things like link names, title tags, page titles, alt tags, task names, meta data, image names and descriptions, and call-to-action buttons all have to work together for a site to be usable and effective. Text should be concise and informative. For more details, see the .pdf file below.
