Drupal 6 Site Blueprints
This book does not cover topics such as installing Joomla! and extensions, or creating content. The ideal reader is one who wishes to build a successful business web site using Joomla! and is interested in making as well as saving money by applying professional tools and techniques to the development, monetization, and marketing of their site. Non-business focussed site owners can still benefit greatly from the book, however, if they wish to add a level of professionalism to their work. The hands-on example projects in this book are based on fictitious web site development briefs, and they illustrate practical ways of applying Drupal. The book dives straight into the process of constructing the featured projects. A chapter is dedicated to each example web site project. Each chapter contains a fictitious brief from which we derive the list of core and contributed modules that we will require to implement the project. Then each chapter progresses into step-by-step instructions for building the web project, aided by the extensive use of screenshots. When you have completed each project, you will have the knowledge and confidence to apply the techniques you have learned to create your own custom web application. This book is for anybody who wants to build a range of Drupal sites, and see how to apply the many available Drupal plugins and features in different scenarios. If you develop Drupal sites professionally, or would like to try building web sites as a freelancer, this is a great book to help you get started.
