I can do THAT in OpenPublic?

So, you have your OpenPublic site all set up. You've configured your basic settings, maybe installed a couple of apps, and added your logo to customize the look and feel a bit. But now it's time to do more. You need to create some custom blocks for your home page. You need to sequence the rotator content on the home page appropriately. And you'd like to manage the webforms on the site. Yep, you can do all of those things - it'll just take a little practice.

On Monday July 25, following CapitalCamp, OpenPublic will hold its first training for site builders. We've geared the training specifically toward members of the public sector tasked with investigating Drupal and OpenPublic for their sites, nonprofit organization staff seeking an open source CMS solution, and site administrators who need to find better ways to manage content online. A strong knowledge of Drupal is not necessary -- just a willingness to dig into this distribution.

At the training, you’ll find an instructional walk through the features of OpenPublic. You will be able to get started with logging in and setting up your user roles, and then we’ll show you what types of content you can create and how they show up on the site. We’ll talk through how to configure your site, how to customize the features, and how to add content quickly and easily. The idea is for site administrators to have the tools you need to both stand up sites quickly, and then to customize to your heart’s content.

We hope you'll join us at the training, and if you miss us this time, we'll be in London at pre-DrupalCon training. Sign up, and let us show you what you can do with OpenPublic!
