Drupal 6 was released in February, which means there's a lot more learning to do for users adopting this latest CMS platform. Luckily, the folks at Packt Publishing are on it with their update to David Mercer's best selling Drupal 4.7 book: "Building powerful and robust websites with Drupal 6". According to Packt Publishing, the overhaul from Mercer's last book on Drupal to this latest edition is as significant as the verty transition from Drupal 4.7 to 6.0. Readers should be in for a treat, and lots of fresh info.
The updated book features clear, concise and practical information. Spread out over ten chapters, you will learn how to:
* Plan and consider various design aspects of a site
* Set up, configure and deploy Drupal 6
* Add and work with modules to enhance website functionality
* Design and implement your website's look and feel
* Deal with security issues, users and access control
* Promote, manage and maintain a live website
David Mercer, who's been writing code, books and books on code for some 9 years, takes readers under his wing and guides them through the many stages of building a professional website in a plain and articulate manner.
"This book, like its predecessor, is still aimed at predominantly beginners, although I suspect many intermediate users of Drupal will find it useful too," explains Mercer. "In comparison to the first book, this update provides a steeper launching ramp to the more technical and professional aspects of Drupal."
Fans of Packt Publishing's offerings should expect more of the same, easy to follow style that their books are known for, with Mercer's friendly and engaging style making the learning experience as painless as possible.
Pick up the book from Packt Publishing for US$ 40.49, or US$ 36.89 each if you buy two or more items.
