    [Using Drupal - Drupal Jumpstart - Hands-on: Content Management, with Addison Berry]
  • 0:13
    Now we get to get hands-on and actually start really building our site.
  • 0:17
    We're going to start adding content, so that we actually
  • 0:20
    have something that looks more like a website.
  • 0:22
    So in this lesson, we're going to create an About page,
  • 0:26
    and then we're also going to create our first article on the site,
  • 0:29
    our first sort-of news item that we have.

    Then we're going to set up some navigation,
  • 0:34
    so people can move around and find things.

Hands-On: Content Management


In this lesson we're going to start building our site for Mom and Pop, Inc. We're starting off by working on our content, to get things filled out a little. First, we'll create an About Us page with the basic info for the store, like address and opening hours. Then we'll create our first article, which welcomes people to the new site, and see how the two core content types, Basic page and Article, are different from each other. Then we'll tweak our main navigation so our tabs display correctly, and finish things off by looking at block management. We'll remove the "Powered by Drupal" block and add a new block to the site for our weekly specials.
