CMS (Drupal 6) Website

So you've chosen to use Drupal as your CMS of choice for your new website? Read on to find out how to create a basic CMS website. From here we will go on to add user profiles, blogs and other social aspects like Facebook, MySpace or twitter. We will then go on to add translation to the site and finally add eCommerce.

OK, the first thing you'll what to do is download the newest version of Drupal and put it on your hosting. Go get the latest version from http://drupal.org/ and download it to your working folder, for me its my download folder in Google Chrome.

I'm using Drupal 6 (even though Drupal 7 is out) because its stable and has all the modules we'll need.

Hiya! Quick question that's totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when browsing from my apple iphone. I'm trying to find a theme
or plugin that might be able to fix this issue.
If you have any recommendations, please share. With thanks!
