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.
If you are premium member of the lynda.com Online Training Library, or if you are watching this tutorial on a DVD-ROM, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this title. Once you have the folder of exercise files, open it, and you will see that it's arranged by video. In these individual folders are graphics and text files. In this course, unlike in some others, we only include the content that goes into the site; we don't include backups of the entire site, since you are working with a hosted solution.
If you don't have access to the exercise files, you can follow along from scratch or use your own assets. Let's gets started.
