Clarifications and Updates

Find something you don't understand, or think is wrong? It happens. There are a couple of things you have to keep in mind when reading this book:

  1. Drupal is organic.

    This means any book written about Drupal might have portions that are out-of-date within hours of publication. That doesn’t mean the books are no good, but it might mean some recipes and step-by-step instructions may require slight modifications.

  2. The Guide is not a Web design how-to.

    The Drupal Users Guide is, by no means, a CSS or web-design how-to. While the themes we offer as part of the hands-on workshops are, we think, gorgeous, your milage may vary.
    There are some great style and CSS guides out there— but the Drupal User’s Guide isn’t one of them.

  3. What should I do when the text of the book and the information on my site doesn’t match?
    • First: Don’t panic. Things change. That’s one of the joys of working in open source.
    • Second: Check elsewhere in the admin menu. It’s possible that the item you’re looking for has simply been moved to a new location.
    • Third: Google is your friend. Try searching for the phrase or name of the item you can’t find. It’s possible someone has already solved the same problem you’re having, and wrote it down on a support forum or on a website or blog post somewhere. Check Drupal.org specifically.
    • Finally: We're experimenting with creating a support channel for this book. Interested in being notified as details become available? Please sign up for our notification list (in the footer of this site).
