16 Different Clones You Can Build with Drupal
1. Digg Clone
Thereâ€™s plenty of Digg clone software out there, but itâ€™s pretty simple to make a site that allows users to submit links to content, vote, comment and moderate the submitted links. Itâ€™s even easier when that functionality is all wrapped up into a single module. Drigg creates an identical voting site that allows users to add web links, vote on them, share stories, and many more features.
3. News Portal
4. Robust user site
Here is where I think Drupal shines brighter than most (if not all) content management systems. Drupal has an excellent user management system, user profiles and even OpenID right out of the box. It also has modules that can connect to Twitter, Facebook, and itâ€™s easy to connect to other authentication gateways with the use of custom modules.
Drupal also has a stellar module called Organic Groups that allows users to â€œorganizeâ€ themselves into groups. Each group can have itâ€™s own homepage, blocks, themes, taxonomy and more.
6. Twitter Clone
Yeah, yeahâ€¦ the world doesnâ€™t need another Twitter clone, right? Well, I tend to disagree. The concept of sites and communities built around short, cross-platform messaging systems are a phenomena that just arenâ€™t going away any time soon. With Drupal, it could be just as easy. Drupalâ€™s Microblog module copies most of the features of Twitter. Micro-messaging, following users and public timelines.
9. Delicious Clone
12. Tumblr Clone
Creating a social aggregation site with Drupal is easy enough with the excellent Activity Stream module. Activity Steam allows you to pull in userâ€™s activity on social sites like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Qik, StumbleUpon and many others.
new book, Drupal for Dummies, is now available. My intended audience is non-technical, so if you’ve got a friend who wants you to build a Drupal site for them, this might be worth mentioning to them. The companion Web site, http://drupalfordummies.com was created using only the information presented in the book.
About the Book
Like other books in the for Dummies series, Drupal for Dummies is for beginners. As my publisher puts it:
Everyone has to start somewhere. Before you can go about modifying the Drupal code base by writing PHP scripts and creating your own custom themes, you first have to download Drupal, install the LAMP stack; organize and create your site’s content; apply templates, get your first site up and running, and administer the site.
That’s precisely what Drupal For Dummies shows readers how to do, and much more Designed for non-programmers, Drupal For Dummies shows readers how to take advantage of everything in Drupal that is ready to use, including modules and third-party templates. For those readers who have been tapped to administer a Drupal site designed and programmed by a third-party developer, Drupal For Dummies provides the plain English instructions necessary to make changes across the site, manager user access and privileges, and many other high-frequency administrative tasks.
