Build a Base Media Project Site

Before we dive into the fun world of playing with media, we need to get some basic Drupal site-building set up to meet a few of our site needs. ---- In this lesson, we'll create a foundation for the rest of the site by setting up the following things:

  • Front page blog
  • Add a theme (business)
