I need to build a website which can authenticate users, present user specific information drawn from my own MySQL database. And I am trying to decide the best approach.
My understanding is, with wordpress I must have my database tables embedded in the wordpress database, but with Drupal I can use my own database. Is that true?
I have some drupal experience but consider myself still a newbie . I have worked on one drupal site before but due to owners circumstances changing the site had to be shut down.
I have asked at drupal user groups whether anybody has any paid or unpaid work available but that came to no avail.
So i am in the position of looking at creating my own website to a) keep my interest up in Drupal b) show people what I can do and c) get more out and be more involved in the drupal user groups I belong to.
Hi, I'm new to Drupal and am trying to figure out the best way to utilize it for a site that would have multiple sub-sites. Each sub-site would share the same theme, header, footer and mega menu. However each sub-site would need their own sidebar menu (perhaps more than one page-depending) and would have editor/publishers that would only have rights to their sub-site. The number of sub-sites is about 40 with at least an equal number of editor/publishers.
I need to make a new CMS with the following security settings. Anyone knows how to do it under Drupal?
1) Administration site on an Intranet server (for Internal Staff only)
2) Public site on an Internet server without the Administration site (for content Integrity)
Reason why the Administration site cannot be hosted together with the Public site is to avoid hacking or bypassing of the Administration login, afraid of making page defacement or SQL injection possible by professional hackers.
