Content management and editor skills

Time to get some Drupal going!

Once you have a grasp on what kind of tool and project Drupal is -- and have your own Drupal site available -- it makes sense to start looking at how to actually use Drupal. This is captured in the learning series Learn Drupal 7 with NodeOne, and this third chapter includes episode 1--9 of this series. They will introduce you to some of the basic concepts of Drupal content management (and site building), such as:

  • Content and nodes
  • Users, roles and permissions
  • Menus
  • Blocks and regions

If you like working with exercises rather than just watching tutorials, I recommend skipping to the next item right away. It links to a heap of editor skill exercises -- all of them linked to the relevant tutorial episodes.
