Use Free Drupal Themes to Get the Site You Want

Thursday, February 24th, 2011

When a business starts out and takes the decision to launch a website it is always very hard to decide how to do this. If you are lucky and your business has cash on hand, or you have a high budget for marketing, you will probably decide to hire a web designer and get them to sort all this out for you, at a price. This option is not always available to all, however, and some have to choose the cheaper alternative of trying to set up a website on their own. There are all sorts of books around these days telling you how to do this, but one thing that will really help you out is a good template.

Free Drupal themes are available through the Drupal website and give you a large range of themes from which to choose. The good thing about this site is that you can choose your themes based on different criteria. For example, you can look by color, number of columns, sidebar position, header type, business or personal, amongst other sorts.

WordPress Hosting With Drupal

Saturday, February 5th, 2011

With each web-hosting company offering WordPress hosting, a variety of open source script programs are generally included as a bundle. Drupal is one of the primary script clients offered, which serves as a site management program. It allows users to publish their content across the web, along with organizing the sites’ data and customizing its appearance.

Drupal allows users to build their site from the ground up, whether they choose from a variety of templates or start from scratch, catering towards novices and more advanced users alike. Your WordPress site can be personalized and tweaked via the programs ‘Panels module’ section, which serves as an intuitive drag and drop process.

The program allows multiple sites to be run, which can be achieved by establishing the ‘Multi-site’ function; allowing a single installation to cater towards several sites at once. These groups can then be individually customized and managed, along with sharing content across the web. Integrating WordPress with Drupal offers all these feature and more.
