BillyKoch Posted May 7, 2013 Share Posted May 7, 2013 What any newbie should do first is learn Drupal. After 2 years of: awful theming, i.e. $element['#object']->field_video_embed['und']['value'] instead of $page->field_video_embed searching through 500 line arrays to find out what module is injecting a certain markup in your code writing huge css files to deal with the divs nested within divs nested within divs nested within divs figuring out how to add a meta tag to your <head> using an API and an array getting carpal tunnel syndrome from constantly clearing the cache because Drupal is such a hog, everything has to be cached learning the Views module, a point and click interface that is 3X more annoying and difficult than learning and using straight SQL find a good host that is beefy enough to deal with the Drupal and has advanced caching capability After that, PW will be a walk in the park. Haha! Yea they do that then complain how slow the site is, and how cluttered it is. And once they touch PW it will be like what was I complaining about again? Again - I am just as much of a hatchling as you are Gray - After only discovering it the other day! Coming from doing a bit of Wordpress, Drupal, Joomla, Umbraco, MODX, and now looking into PW (Which I don't think I will be disbanding at all and start using for future projects). I can say that I like the flexibiity that PW offers. Granted I can see I have a learning curve ahead of me - but I'm gonna hammer it and us lil hatchlings gotta stick together and get through this. Hang in there! 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
