Come to our Drupal Users Group meeting on Thursday, May 15 from 11am - noon in the Baker Science Center (Building 180), room 101. Meet fellow Cal Poly Drupallers, see what's new with Drupal 7, and give us feedback on what new features you'd like us to implement.

What is Drupal?

Drupal is an open source Web Content Management System (WCMS) that allows users to easily organize, publish and manage a large variety of content on a website. More Information about Drupal.

Why use Drupal for your website?

  • Drupal is Cal Poly's centrally supported Web technology.
  • It's web-based software, so you can access it from any computer's web browser and don't need to install, purchase, or learn to use Dreamweaver.
  • Keep your website within the Cal Poly branding standards.
  • Information Services provides user guides and monthly workshops to help you learn to use it.
  • Features such as versioning, an easy to use WSYWIG editor, rotating home page images, and the webforms and widgets modules make building your site easy.
  • Delegate access to sections or pages of your site while maintaining control of style and navigation.
  • Sites are hosted on ITS's secure VMWare servers and backed up nightly.

Are you convinced? Please fill out a Drupal Site request for any site you would like to move to or create in Drupal.
