    Modules and Themes

    A big advantage to Drupal is that even though there are many useful features included and ready to use as soon as you install, it is still streamlined because it includes only the basics in Core. In this stage we will learn how to extend Drupal's capabilities even more by using modules and themes. 9 steps

    Writing Modules

    In the last stage we learned how to use modules and themes written by other people, but here we'll learn the basics of how to make our own modules from scratch. Once you know how to use Drupal's built-in functions and naming rules you can customize anything you like from within a custom module. 10 steps
