Drupal Discussion

Join us for a discussion about content management systems. Learn from brief presentations by veterans and share your own stories, issues, and successes. Beginners welcome!

Scheduled Presentations:

Kyle Jones
A.C. Buehler Library, Elmhurst College

Initially built as a blogging system, Wordpress has matured in its development to encompass more than just blogging. With over 1,300 plugins and hundreds of themes available all created by a community with fervent dedication to its growth and stability,
Wordpress should be on your list of CMS contenders.

Kyle will explain why he has implemented a version of Wordpress as a CMS, provide a walk through of its administrative system, proclaim its advantages, and address its detractors.

Brian Smith
Prairie Area Library System

Brian will discuss some options in Drupal - including the Tagadelic and Cumulus modules - to enhance the display of always tricky taxonomy terms.

John Wohlers
Waubonsee Community College Todd Library

John will discuss the invaluable Content Construction Kit (CCK) and Views modules in Drupal. He will demonstrate how he used CCK and Views to build a research database listing.
