Seascape built this online news site to cover the upcoming Yellowknife City Council Election. We used Views to display Mayor Candidate profiles and Council Candidates. We added video interviews for each candidate. We added Ads and Polls, Issues and Opinion pieces. Editors and Reporters are able to add new articles easily. Articles are published upon Managing Editor approval. This site is built with Drupal 7.
This article is written for Drupal websites specifically. But the main items apply to any platform such as Wordpress or Joomla. Here is an overview:
Here is part 2 of my Introduction to Drupal series.
Drupal is a popular Content Management System
- This means that the user can add new content and edit existing content.
- It is built with PHP and mySQL so it provides dynamic content
Drupal is Open Source
- no license fees
- available as a free download at Drupal.org
- maintained by global community of volunteers
- software is frequently updated to improve security, fix bugs and add new features

I had most menu items either as triples or higher, and the whole admin system was going berzerk. I'm not yet sure if the issue is resolved yet... but steps I took:
What to do?
It is frustrating for many bloggers when spammers leave mulitple comments on their blog posts. Some have turned off commenting all together. There is another option. In blogs built with Drupal, you can require that all comments be approved before they are posted live.
So I have changed the settings in Permissions so that all comments must be approved before they get posted to the site. If a spammer leaves a complimentary comment with a spam link, I take out the spam link and leave the compliments. As the blog editor I have the job of editing comments and making sure they are on topic.
I encourage my readers to leave comments, add your opinion and other information that will add value to my articles and blog posts. You are welcome to post a link to your own website in your signature. All comments must be approved before they are posted live.
