Final Videos for Advanced Site Building Released!

This week, we're releasing the final videos of the "Advanced Site Building in Drupal 7" collection. These final videos go over that backup plan we've been talking about, for those special cases where spam gets so out of control that we need a little extra help from a third party service. We'll close things out by reviewing how Mollom works and show you how to run it through a few tests.

"Advanced Site Building" has been one of our most popular series to date, and that's in large part to it being created as a direct response to some of the many questions you've sent our way. We couldn't have done this without you!

Every end is a new beginning, and there are some exciting things just around the corner for BuildAModule that we can't wait to share with you. If you have any guesses as to what they might be or suggestions for where you would like us to go from here, remember that we're always just an e-mail away. Until then, stay tuned for more information about our next video series!
