Drupal is a content management system. Here’s the low-down.
These are the add-ons that make Drupal powerful.
http://drupalmodules.com has a directory of modules along with user ratings. My profile is http://drupalmodules.com/profile/3488. You can see my favorite modules at http://drupalmodules.com/favorites/view/3488/modules.
Drush is the drupal shell. If you’re comfortable with a command line this is a must have power-tool.
- Read the README.txt files for the modules and themes you install if you hit any roadblocks
- If you’re deciding to roll your own theme, first consider rolling your own Zen sub-theme
- If you can, setup a seperate drupal install for just testing things in
