Help Guide

Welcome to Drupal

Drupal is a content management system (CMS) used by a number of organizations to build and maintain websites. Please visit the Content Management System Initiative website to read about the benefits of using a CMS along with information regarding our three main focus areas: the migration plan, the implementation of university web standards and the multi-faceted Drupal support structure.

One of Drupal's most powerful features is its access control system. Drupal's users, permissions and roles allow you to delegate some of the management of your site to your colleagues. Users are assigned roles with permissions to perform tasks such as adding or editing all of the content of your site.

This guide aims to give users a strong foundation in Drupal by providing in-depth explanations and a collection of detailed how-to guides.

This guide was written for Drupal version 6.
