Drupal: first impressions


The installation was pretty much exactly like they two install
documents said, a very good sign.  One doc was for drupal, the other
for mysql.  I decided to download a few modules and themes.  I didn't
know how to use them.  Oops.  I thought, if this is a darn logical
program, then where drupal lives on my box, there should be a
directory each for  module and theme, and if I unpack them there, I
should be able to use them.


Now it looks like there are a huge number of choices, starting from
what version to install.  I work to minimize relearning, so I think
I'll go with 5.1.  I want to start simple and solid.  Those themes and
modules that have a 5.1 branch are being maintained.  Is there a
rating system around for these themes and modules?  Hard to make a
rational choice.

So far it seams like the system will be simple to alter the look and
alter the functionality, which is very impressive.  I am going to work
on getting one page "right".
