    Suggestions for Drupal

    Hey everyone is doing well,

    What I'm wanting is to learn about Drupal for this first time. I want my website to help me post and also assist my audience digest my posts. So, What are the best Drupal books for beginners like me to read? Feel free to suggest why Drupal may be good or bad choice for what I wish to accomplish.

    Thanks, Polyhedra (Daniel)

    I would start with the documentation on the drupal site

    http://drupal.org/documentation

    I found the documentation to be lacking for more advanced tasks like building modules, but for the basics of getting started it was just fine.

    "Drupal 7 module development" helped with filling the gaps.

    Thanks, the documentation looks like a good place to start. Also having a book will be useful once I actually start coding and need quick references.

    Hey Daniel,

    barbarahambly has a very good suggestion which is one of my go-to books whenever I recommend a book but first I would look at Using Drupal Second Edition (http://shop.oreilly.com/product/0636920010890.do). This is a great book about how to do things "The Drupal Way" which is kind of important because once you get a good foundation, you'll have a better understanding of how to to extend your sites.

    Cheers,
    Andrew

    Edit: avior's suggestion of the documentation at Drupal.org is spot-on too.
