Rather predictably I’m a massive fan of Drupal, but in this article I’m going to explain why Drupal is the only choice for me. Overview of CMS options So what other Opensource CMSs are there besides Drupal: Drupal vs Joomla I started out with Joomla because at first look Drupal is scary and Joomla has nice shiny buttons and looks easier out the box.

Drupal is a fantastic CMS which I have been actively developing for, for some time now. Yesterday was the first time I had really ventured into the Ajax territory but I learnt a lot and hopefully this guide should help others. Currently this example is Drupal 5.x only.

This is a really quick tutorial in response to sahilr's question here: http://drupalsn.com/learn-drupal/drupal-questions/question-2470. This tutorial outlines the procedures for Drupal 5 but if you are comfortable with Views 2 you can follow the tutorials principle and transfer it to Views 2 and it should work fine.

Drupal theming in its simplest form in just a HTML/CSS layout with a bunch of PHP tags dropped in. There seems to be a perception that Drupal theming is something really difficult but to be honest if your HTML and CSS skills are up to scratch and you’re...
