From the Back Cover:

The easy, practical, step-by-step guide to building great sites with Drupal 7... the perfect solution for Drupal's notorious learning curve!

  • Guides content managers, small business owners, and non-profit volunteers from "I need a site!" to finished, successful web site
  • Humanizes Drupal with plenty of case studies and user interviews
  • Reflects Drupal 7's latest improvements
  • Covers topics like search engine optimization and Section 508 accessibility that most Drupal books ignore
  • The free, open source Drupal content management system offers enormous flexibility, sophistication, and power - but, for most users, it also presents a steep and difficult learning curve. Most Drupal guidebooks don't help: either they're too technical, too daunting, or too narrowly targeted. This is a Drupal book for "the rest of us." Drupal User's Guide is easy to use, fun to read, and complete. Long-time Drupal site developer Emma Jane Hogbin guides readers through every step of building web sites with Drupal 7, from planning through going live and maintaining content. Hogbin covers both Drupal tasks and "web design" tasks, showing how they fit together. She also "humanizes" Drupal with plenty of interviews, case studies and real-life examples from the worldwide Drupal community. Readers will learn how to: 1. Evaluate, install, and deploy Drupal and the third-party modules they need to get the job done 2. Smoothly handle every step of the web design life cycle 3. Import and manage content of all kinds 4. Administer Drupal and implement efficient content management workflows 5. Use Drupal to build sites that are optimized for search engines 6. Meet today's accessibility standards, including Section 508 This is the Drupal book thousands of users and potential users have been searching for - everything they need to overcome Drupal's notorious learning curve, and begin taking advantage of its immense power.
