Last year, on September 26 (on the developer’s
birthday), the project “Drupalogy.ru - an exhibition of sites made on Drupal” was launched, where owners, site creators could post their work, and users could evaluate and add their opinion.
The first version was hardly visited, the sites were practically not commented, although the rating of the added sites was given. There were few categories, but there were no restrictions.
The first version of the site
After some time, many amendments were taken into account and the resource was changed, besides, it finally got a logo. The most popular picture describing Drupal features became the basis for the logo:
Useful features have been added, such as displaying site rankings in popular search directories, browser support, etc. The design has been changed due to the new data about the added site.The second version of the site
At the beginning of this year, a second project appeared - pdf-magazine Drupalogiya, authored by independent developers who decided to share their knowledge with beginners. After zero release, the project became: people did not have time to write articles or reviews. Although the enthusiasm has not dried up.
Not long ago, I almost finished writing a guide for new Debian users, which included several important chapters: installation and configuration of the system and LAMP on Debian.
What awaits this year:
I received a bunch of suggestions for adding “utility” sites to the exhibition and selected a few:
- installation of template markers for sites that use paid or free templates (I received about 20 letters with this offer from people independent of each other);
- section "no longer Drupal" for sites that have changed the "engine".
- continue his support. I am ashamed to admit, but everything that was planned was stuck in place. There are a lot of authors of the unit. At the first opportunity the publication of the journal will be resumed. Now the site is closed, but the magazine is available for download. At the moment, pdf has been downloaded more than 25 thousand times!
- will be replenished with materials.
- labor exchange for Drupal-developers. Opening is scheduled in mid-October.
- for innovations - users Drupal.ru , Habrahabr ;
- for participation - to all authors of the pilot version of the Drupalogiya magazine;
- for moral support - to all fans of CMS / CMF Drupal .
