The Drupal core installation can serve as a simple Web site, a single- or multi-user blog, an Internet forum, or a community Web site providing for user-generated content."The Drupal Overview", a feature of the project web site, describes it as a content management framework.In a Drupal website's default configuration, content can be contributed by either registered or anonymous users (at the discretion of the administrator) and is made accessible to web visitors by a variety of selectable criteria.(Starting with version 8, core is kept in its own 'core' sub-directory.) Drupal core is the stock element of Drupal.Bootstrap and Common libraries are defined as Drupal core and all other functionalites are defined as Drupal modules including the system module itself.The standard release of Drupal, known as Drupal core, contains basic features common to content-management systems.
Interest in Drupal got a significant boost in 2003 when it helped build "Dean Space" for Howard Dean, one of the candidates in the U. Democratic Party's primary campaign for the 2004 U. After Dean ended his campaign, members of his Web team continued to pursue their interest in developing a Web platform that could aid political activism by launching Civic Space Labs in July 2004, "the first company with full-time employees that was developing and distributing Drupal technology".Drupal 8 includes new features and improvements for both users and developers, including: a revamped user interface; WYSIWYG and in-place editing; improved mobile support; added and improved key contributed modules including Views, Date, and Entity Reference; introduced a new object-oriented backend leveraging Symfony components; revamped configuration management; and improved multilingual support.Drupal 8 rc1 is the collective work of over 3,200 core contributors.that brings numerous improvements, including CKEditor WYSIWYG enhancements, added APIs, an improved help page, and two new experimental modules.
The name came from the now-defunct Web site, whose code slowly evolved into Drupal.
Buytaert wanted to call the site "dorp" (Dutch for "village") for its community aspects, but mistyped it when checking the domain name and thought the error sounded better. Dean Space used open-source sharing of Drupal to support a decentralized network of approximately 50 disparate, unofficial pro-Dean websites that allowed users to communicate directly with one another as well as with the campaign.
