I'm looking to build a gaming website, that will put on show a number of articles from varied writers on a regular basis, similar to IGN, but will also focus on building and establishing a strong community that will be provided a platform to showcase their creative work.
Before I begin to invest in a suitable theme and start building though, I have a question that's been troubling me the entire day.
Currently we are using Documentum as only Web Content Management System (WCMS) with some of the tailored functions and carrying out a feasibilty study to look for the possibility of migrating to Drupal.
Hosted Web Site:
Can I create a specific view of an ordinary folder in the server’s file system showing media content as embedded objects on a page for replay (and the rest just as download links)? Or: Can I have Drupal automatically create nodes from folder contents, one node for each file representing it as an object – so I can use them on a view page?
I've spent quite a lot of time and money developing Great British Politics on Joomla 2.5. However, Joomla can be a bit tricky and we're looking at other options. Need a few questions answered first though.
Firstly, can the majority of the current site be easily transferred between Joomla and Drupal? I imagine at least the vast majority of plugins and templates won't have Drupal versions, but we've built up a huge media and article library that we can't lose.
Considering using Drupal, but I need to know whether it will allow me to have a page on my website where logged in users (can drupal sites have a log in that won't give these users access to the back end of the site? I'm assuming so) can submit an article and it will show up on a page of user submitted projects/articles. Is there a special module or simple set of settings to do this, or will I have to do some complicated coding? Or is it not going to be able to be set up how I intend?
