Published on

Sometimes distributions save site builders from having to make many difficult decisions by implementing proven best practices out-of-the-box in easy-to-install packages.

Check out the slides from my presentation from the December Victoria Drupal user group to learn about some of the most interesting distributions out there, built for purposes as diverse as community building, conference management, social networking and news portals. We will look at the strengths and weaknesses of various distributions, as well as tips and tricks for working with them efficiently.

  • Session submission, voting and moderation Attendees can submit session proposals, complete with track and experience level, and vote for the sessions they&apos;d like to see at your conference. COD provides a workflow for moderating sessions, making it easy to go from session submission to a list of accepted and fully scheduled sessions. Session schedule grid, Personalized attendee schedules COD makes it easy to build a grid schedule of sessions times and rooms. Each attendee can add a session to her own personalized conference schedule. Easy event registration and attendee management COD&apos;s built-in registration workflow makes it easy for people to sign up for your event, enter user profile information, and pay registration fees. Event organizers can manage attendee lists and keep track of who attended. Community features Network with other attendees in advance by flagging yourself as their friend, fan and someone who would like to meet up. Share ideas and plan your time in the forums. Easy sponsors management Sponsors make your event possible. With COD, sponsors can enter their organization&apos;s information and logos directly into the website . Sponsor organizers can approve and publish sponsors with a single click. Multiple sponsor tiers, dynamic logo resizing, and various sponsor displays are built-in.
