This chapter introduced Drupal, the PHP content management system/web portal available from Drupal.org. You worked through the steps for installing Drupal, and then created some content. Next, you got a brief tour of Drupal's core capabilities and some basic concepts. You learned that you can change the way your site is presented by changing the theme and extend the functionality of your site by enabling blocks and modules. Finally, you were introduced to the concepts of nodes and taxonomy, two of the fundamental ideas behind the Drupal architecture.
