Author Tom Geller demonstrates how to create and publish a complete web site with the powerful tools in Acquia's hosted service, Drupal Gardens. The course shows how to leverage the pre-built page layouts and add custom styling using the ThemeBuilder tool; integrate rich site features, such as surveys, user ratings, and media galleries; and push content to Twitter and Facebook. The course also covers transitioning from a Drupal Gardens site to a self-hosted Drupal site. Exercise files are included with the course.
Note that you have to do this in a text editor that saves plain text, not the styled text that a word processor saves. Some free programs that do that are Notepad, which is built into Windows, and TextEdit, which is built into the Mac OS. To get our code, I'll go back to this page, scroll down, and copy it. I'll then go to my text editor. I happen to have one open already called Notepad++. Paste the code. Then I'll Save it to the Desktop as mytabs.js, and save.
