Extending Drupal 7

This documentation guide describes 'Extending' your Drupal 7 site beyond the capabilities of a standard Drupal core installation.

You can pick and choose from a wide range of contributed modules to add functionality to your site, and from a wide range of contributed themes to change your site's appearance. These addon modules and themes are also know as 'contrib', because they were contributed by members of our Drupal community, and are available on Drupal.org free of charge.


Install additional functionality and styles with addon modules and themes, contributed by members like you, and free here at drupal.org
