about this drupal vs joomla blog

The Mission of this Blog is to inspire conversations related to the best open source content management systems available today.
Is your Favorite CMS Drupal? or Joomla?
Or do you blog on wordpress…
Participate in the conversation here about your Favorite CMS
Im using Joomla, Drupal, WordPress, Pligg, Mambo, and Moodle.
Best – Matt
My engagement with the Drigg for Drupal Theme Development Project has ended.
Im going to collect a few notes on the Drupal Theme Development project and post here later, for now I want to discuss the future of this blog.
I have an interest in keeping a presence in the Drupal Community.
But have so much more experience with Joomla and other OS content management systems that I have to go back to school just to accomplish fundamental tasks with the Drupal CMS.
As for the Drupal Theme Blog on WordPress I am going to be posting articles on Joomla, Drupal, WordPress and other Open Source Content Management Systems.
The goal of this Blog is now to support discussion and opinion of the current CMS development strategies.
So share in the conversation by commenting and I will link back to your site and continue the conversation.
To your continued success with Drupal, Joomla, and WordPress!
This is where I started….
I am going to start by putting together some notes on creating a social voting and social bookmarking website for Drupal.
Beginning with a look at the current Drupal Social Bookmarking module Drigg, I will compare the functionality of the existing Module with sites like Digg.com and the Pligg project.
Creating a few new features is important for any new Drupal Theme to be well received by the Drupal programmers community.
Thanks to WordPress.com for maintaining a great Blogging and CMS Platform.
To your continued success as a fellow Drupal Theme Developer.

I am actually going to restart my Core Drupal CMS, because I was Running Drupal 6.4

The Drupal Upgrade from Version 6.4 to Version 6.6 was going to take too long.

Loading Drupal Version 6.6 for A Drigg for Drupal Website

So this time I used Simple Scripts instead of Fantastico.

Fantastico Loaded an Old Version of Drupal to my project site.

So in the Fantastico vs Simple Scripts I choose Simple Scripts as my script installer.

Using an automated script installer like Fantastico or Simple Scripts to load new Open Source Software is my preferred method.

Im installing the Drupal CMS on a managed server that provides C-Panel so I navigate to Fantastico, select Drupal, and press install. Fantastico creates all my databases and directories and configures the initial Drupal Installation.

This time however using Fantastico resulted in an outdated release of Drupal, v6.4 I think.

I downloaded all the Modules needed to create a Digg.com Clone with Drupal.

Drigg Module

Voting API Module

Extra Voting Forms Module

User Karma Module

Tagadelic Module


reCAPTCHA Module

If there are newer modules available please let me know in a comment.
