Site Design Notes

This book is intended for the webmaster, and only contains information relevant to the maintenance of the site.  Before you begin, there are two things you should do:

  1. Get and read a couple of good books on Drupal, one on using the admin interface, and one on how the underlying system works (Pro Drupal Development is an excellent resource for the later).
  2. Download, install, and run the "Site Documnetation" module:  This will provide you with a complete overview of the structure of the site.  All of its themes, node-types, blocks, and contents.
  3. Review the Views documentation ( - the site makes extensive use of Views, and CCK.

Once you've got a basic idea about what Drupal is and how the site is structured, this document will fill in some of the niggly little details.
