Drupal 7 launches with friendlier UI and simpler installation

In the world of open source content management systems, it's easy to forget that there's another big player aside from WordPress: Drupal. With Drupal powering 1% of all the websites in the world, including such high profile sites as WhiteHouse.gov, it should probably show up on your radar if you're looking for a solid CMS. Some of the quirks that have always been associated with Drupal have bee...

The White House releases its open source code

If you've visited WhiteHouse.gov since its change of ownership back in 2009 you'll hopefully have noticed some very cool changes. The site itself was jazzed up -- CHANGE! -- and, as best befits this 'information age', accessibility has been greatly improved for all citizens and denizens of the USA. What you may not have noticed, however, is that the entire site runs on a customized version of Drup...

Google brings Friend Connect to Joomla and Drupal

Today, Google announced the addition of their Friend Connect service to both the Joomla and Drupal platforms. Friend Connect is a pretty cool concept. It allows people to become "members" of a website by using credentials from sites like Google, Twitter, Yahoo, etc. Once logged in, you can "like" content, add other friends and participate in polls, discussions and other stuff like that. The ser...

Acquia: Commercially supported Drupal

When it comes to choosing a content management system (CMS), the open-source Drupal is often a great choice for large or content-rich sites, because it scales well, supports multiple authors and is thoroughly customizable. The downside of all of this power is that for new users especially, the learning curve can be pretty steep. Although Drupal 6 was a huge step forward in overall usability, fro...

Drupal 6 is released

The powerful Open Source CMS Drupal has released its latest version onto the world. Drupal 6 adds a host of new features, including an easier installation process, built-in OpenID support and updates to the theming structure. As far as content management systems (CMS) go, Drupal is easily one of the most powerful, especially for scaling large sites with multiple authors. But that power has alway...

BitNami makes installing popular open source packages easy as pie

One of the main issues with open source software that people have (and a reason they don't use it) is that it's hard to install and configure. There is a new project called BitNami that is trying to take the sting out of the open source adoption process. They bundle many popular Open Source software packages into a 1-click setup file. Theoretically, all a user has to do it download the package of...

Drupal 5, a major update to a major player

The field of Content Management Systems (CMS) mirrors what my grandfather always said, "Cream rises to the top." Scores of open source products jockey for position among the field and only a very few rise to the occasion. Joomla (formerly Mambo), Typo, and Drupal stand out among the field and, of those, Drupal mostly wins the overwhelming support of the FOSS community. Drupal can be seen in action...

Want a portal? Just add Geeklog

There's no shortage of CMS or "portal" building tools out there. Drupal is one I've come to trust and its feature set is hard to beat. But many require a certain amount of heavy lifting or at least tweaking to get running. Enter Geeklog-- a so-called "portal in a box," or to hear them say it, "The Ultimate Weblog System." I don't know about ultimate, but I will say the installation and configurati...
