Every business must use technology to some degree if it intends to thrive.   The most popular office software suites and accounting programs are common enough.
But when it comes to creating a website or more sophisticated internet based portal for your business, things get complicated pretty quickly.
The articles below cover topics related to helping your business use the internet more effectively, including articles about Drupal, a powerful and flexible platform for web development.

Why Drupal?

Drupal is a web development platform. It is sometimes called a "content management system", but that description seems insufficient. I would describe it as a "communication management system", because it profoundly can make development for communication between users more effective.  
Drupal offers features similar to other applications, but has advantages because of its original purpose. It was originally conceived and developed by Dries Buytaert, while he was a Masters degree student at the University of Antwerp in Belgium, to create a way for his friends to communicate.

Some good things about Drupal...

  • It's open source software (i.e. technically "free")
  • written in PHP
  • it is modular, with Core modules providing flexibility and power to create the foundation of a website, and available optional modules - some third-party, and some Drupal community developed - to extend site functionality

Drupal is used:

  • on 14% of the top 10,000 websites worldwide
  • for everything from government and political and corporate websites to personal blog sites
  • for functionality such as knowledge management, collaboration, retail e-commerce, and so much more

The community aspect of Drupal:

  • more than 1.39 million members
  • 124,000 actively contributing users
  • 48,300 free modules - to extend and customize Drupal functionality
  • 3,000 free themes
  • over 1,400 free "distributions" (pre-configured installations allowing quick, easy set-up of Drupal to providing specific "out-of-the-box" functionality)

Flushing Caches

From time to time when developing sites with Drupal and other systems, flushing the site cache (background data stored to keep it functioning but not always needed) can fix a lot of apparent issues.

You can flush the caches in the Performance section of the Administration menu or if you install the Admin Toolbar Module, you will have a dropdown menu option to flush all caches (and more) on the leftmost menu item (see image).
