Maybe your site is already built on Drupal and you’re considering an upgrade. Maybe you are considering Drupal for the first time. You’ve done some research and hit your first wall – What version of Drupal should you consider?
You’re not alone. Visiting Drupal.org, the choice looks simple. Drupal 7. There are banners and buttons and headlines that all direct you to choose version 7 for your site. But wait – you were on a message board, or Google, or somewhere and saw someone mention version 8.
Drupal has finally released its latest major update: Drupal 7! In this latest release, a main focus was enhancing the often clunky administration experience previous versions were known for. Highlights of the new, simplified user interface include a dashboard, overlay, and admin bar. These are certain to bring some relief to the experienced Drupal user and newcomers to the content management system alike.
Using the new dashboard, site owners and administrators can easily add a summary of the latest relevant site information. Other dashboard widgets can include analytics (who is viewing your site) and recent comments. No more deep digging into the Drupal admin console!
All over the world, release parties like this one will be celebrating a milestone in Drupal’s history – the release of version 7. Oomph and the Providence Drupal Meetup would like to invite you to our office for a little party on the occasion. Snacks and libations will be provided, so come down, hang out, and check out our cool office space in recycled shipping containers.
