Building a Smart Administration User Interface
One of the often-overlooked areas of building and deploying Drupal sites is the site and content administrators user interface. We often focus on the “pretty” public facing side of the site and hastily throw together a basic off-the-shelf interface at those who are responsible for authoring and maintaining content, and those who manage the site. The result of our lack of focus on the backends of our sites is frustration by those who are key to the overall success of the sites that we build and deploy. Making it easier for content creators and site administrators to do their jobs is relatively easy and it’s the focus of this chapter.
