Have you ever needed to quickly add audio, videos or images from the major web services like SoundCloud, Flickr, Vimeo, and BrightCove? Or wished you could control who can see certain parts of your site's content or user profiles? Now you can.
MaximumPC explores how to create a Drupal Gardens website in well under an hour. With Drupal Gardens, there's no need to worry about backend administration, working with frustrating FTP uploads, or paying scads to a talented web developer for his years of dedicated technical education.
This release of Drupal Gardens has something for every site builder. In particular, support for custom date/time fields has been one of the most requested features. As is the Drupal Gardens norm, we kept the bar high and only added these modules after putting in enough design, engineering and testing to deliver a UX that was easier, but not watered down.
At Acquia, we created a Drupal Showcase site to display some of the most beautiful Drupal websites around. We wanted to highlight some of the more popular sites in a featured carousel when people visit the site. Since we wanted the site to be on Drupal Gardens, however, we couldn't install the jCarousel module, so we had to come up with our own way to have a Carousel on the site.
