Upgraded Download Package

In addition to our new series release, we've also upgraded the download package to include captions for the hard of hearing.

We will be rolling this new package out for our other downloads as well in the near future, but it's available immediately for the "Advanced Site Building in Drupal 7" collection.

About spam protection on other forms, including the user registration form - 0:41

What questions to ask clients (or yourself) before setting up commenting - 2:51

Comments in Drupal have a lot of options, and the level of security you need depends in large part on project requirements. Do you want to open up anonymous posting? Will you require CAPTCHAs?
