Orientation to a New Drupal 7 Site


In this chapter we take a tour of the administrative toolbar that is provided by default in Drupal 7. We quickly review the Dashboard, Content, Structure, Appearance, People, and Modules sections. Under Configuration we review some of the more important configuration screens. Then we move on to the Reports section and talk about the importance of the Status report screen. We wrap things up by showing how to use the Shortcuts bar, and a quick look at where to find your built-in help documentation.
