Drupal Quick-Reference Guide

Welcome to the next phase of the Drupal Quick Reference Guide. As you are already aware, there are a great deal of changes to the template. We believe these changes will streamline Extension websites, giving a cohesive look, and simplifying the overall structure for Extension employees tasked with management of their county/AES websites.

Within the new Drupal theme, images are restricted to the right side of the content section of your page. This new look keeps images uniformly positioned on each page and streamlines the look of the websites, increasing the ease with which visitors can access information from our Extension/AES websites. Several images can be uploaded, but all will be aligned to the right side of the page. An example of the what your page may look like with images is shown at your right.
