You might remember we mentioned that we were going to kick off an activity we call ‘Pimp Your Admin’ at the recent Drupalcon conference – we have a few interesting screencasts already and now we’d like to invite you to join in!
One of the great things about Drupal is that you can bend it to your will – get it to do just about anything you need it to do. Same goes for itâ€™s administration interface (admin).
Before we get to work on the Drupal7 Admin, weâ€™d love to see what you out there have done to make the Drupal Admin System do what you need it to do, or just to work better for you and your project.
Hereâ€™s how we want to do it – simply take a little screencast, it seems to take us about six or seven minutes – and walk us through your admin system and show us what youâ€™ve done, even if itâ€™s just something tiny – to make Drupal work better for you.
You can check out some examples that others have done at the Drupal7UX YouTube Group then once you’ve recorded yours, upload it and post it to the group so we can take a look. (Of course, if you’d rather host it elsewhere, you can just leave a link to your preferred location in the comments below (thanks Brandonian, we’ve got a note of yours!)
We’re really looking forward to seeing your work and to see if some interesting trends start to emerge!
update: for those who ask, we’ve been using Silverback to record our screencasts. If you’re a Mac user and interested in User Experience you should have Silverback. It’s great and ridiculously affordable.
