This section houses various recipes for building different types of Drupal sites. A recipe is a set of instructions that show how to prepare or make something. This section should not be used for HowTo guides that demonstrate a singular functionality, but rather an overarching objective for your site(s).
As with cooking, there are many ways to assemble a Drupal site. You can arrive at widely different destinations with the same or similar modules. By perusing these guides, you will be able to decide for yourself what is appropriate for your site. More information on basic site configurations can be found here.
Note: site recipes are opinions of the original author and represent a way to accomplish a goal and not necessarily the only way. Please contribute your methods to help those that come after you learn.
