Before we can start building a search application we need some sample data that we can index and use for testing, not to mention a site we can use to test this all out on. In this tutorial we'll walk through installing Drupal 7 and importing some sample data.
In order for this to work I built a Drupal 7 site with a content type named Fish, and then imported a whole bunch of descriptions of various fish from Wikipedia. You should be able to use the provided database dump in order to get up and running with a sample Drupal site pre-populated with some sample data.
If you're not planning on following along and building the fish finder application in the Search API and Solr series, or are planning on implementing Solr search on your own site instead you can probably skip this tutorial. Just note that the rest of the tutorials in the series assume you've got a working Drupal 7 site with some content.
By the end of this tutorial you should have a working Drupal 7 site with sample content running on your localhost for playing with while watching the rest of the series.
Over the years we've developed some techniques for practicing that we wanted to share. At Drupalize.Me we take hugging seriously. In this tutorial we'll look at the art, and science, of giving a good hug. The Merriam Webster dictionary defines the word hug as; squeeze (someone) tightly in one's arms, typically to express affection.
Did you know there are all kinds of different hugs that you can give? In this tutorial we'll look at:
- Defining what a hug is
- Some of the many types of hugs in the world today
- Precautions you may want to familiarize yourself with before hugging
- And the importance of proper technique
Lets go ahead and get started shall we?
