This book is a step-by-step guide and a hands-on co-piloted experience for those trying to make Drupal powered websites work for them, and for their clients. Much more than a 'tutorial', what is needed is a nuts-and-bolts living mentor and guide which really shows the reader how to do the things really required for bringing it all together in a site which works. This will be the only book covering all the difficult components of Drupal: views, panels, themes, content creation, etc. The book will cover: how to upgrade your hopelessly outdated and obsolete-software dependent site and bring it into the Drupal mainstream and future; how to become a great Drupal themer and make 'non-Drupal' looking sites; how to really customize Drupal for your real needs; how to start using best practices in Drupal web application development; and, how to work like the pro Drupal shops and be ready for big projects - and small ones. Learn by example (code samples, theme samples, videos) at every step.
