Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Although I have been designing websites since 1997 content management systems were a new concept to me. So when I was asked by my boss to learn Drupal I looked online for a suitable book to give me the basics. After reviewing several options I chose Drupal 7 Explained and was not disappointed. The writer gradually explains the functions of the many inter-related features of Drupal in a very clear and comprehensible manner. The key modules that are needed to make Drupal useable are introduced to the reader without the need for a neebie to search the Drupal website for them. Once the basic functionality is established the author gives helpful hints on how to find and evaluate additional modules and templates without which hours of time could be wasted.

At a couple of points I struggled to get the modules to work, even though I followed the instructions carefully. However, as the book is linked to the author's website and reader comment forums I was quickly able to find solutions. The problem I had was not not the book, but the rapidly updating nature of Drupal's components, not all of which work with the latest versions of other required modules. I found the text combined with the on-line updates and additional material an extremely helpful combination.

I would therefore recommend this title to anyone wanting to start designing their own Drupal-based website.

5.0 out of 5 stars Training at its Best 2 July 2013
My experience of using step-by-step guides is not fantastic. All too often, I get half way through, realise that all I'm learning is how to follow the steps and consequently give up. This book is definitely the exception - although it does follow a very detailed set of step-by-step actions, it manages to explain their purpose at every stage and sets their context within an overall plan for the book (and the reader's outcome) that is clear from the outset. The word 'explained' in the book's title really does have a meaning.

The author clearly conveys his knowledge of training methods and has provided an enjoyable and beneficial experience for me in working from page 1 to page 450.

The responsive support through the book's companion website is second to none at

This is a good book - perhaps following the examples isn't as simple as it seems, but the book is well structured and easy-ish to follow.
