Drupal Support Sites and Training

Drupal 7 and add on themes and modules provides the backbone of this site and many of our projects. This is a dedicated page to some of the great support sites. Please provide any feedback or recommendations on the main Web Design page.

Whilst it's fairly true to say that you could source about 99.9% of your Drupal training and issue solving support online (and mostly free to boot), don't discount the option and convenience of grabbing a book.  You can't be online all the time, and it's a nice change to sit down at your local park or coffee shop with some easy ready like "Drupal for Dummies" (which also has some great online support gems as well  eg. this useful guide on setting permissions Assigning Drupal Permissions;)
