Drupal is all about content management, which makes it the perfect solution for any media outlet. But each outlet, whether newspaper, television, or magazine, has specific needs to be considered when building their Drupal site.

In this session, you will learn how to build a killer Drupal-based website that meets the needs of any media organization. We’ll cover the components of a baseline architecture needed for building a successful publishing site with Drupal 7.

In this webinar, you will learn how to:
• Design easy-to-use editorial workflows that allow for automation and easy content creation, while providing for editorial oversight to ensure quality control
• Set up an image management workflow that takes into the account the needs of a publishing house
• Implement a strategy that helps you deal with the challenges of displaying ads well in a grid layout or in a responsive design
• Establish a taxonomy architecture by setting up multiple vocabularies. We'll look at a base setup of vocabularies/layout and how to tune it for your needs
