Last Thursday we had our second Drupal 262 user group meeting on "Breaking Down Drupal." The goal of the meeting was to simplify and explain all of the terminology found in Drupal: regions, blocks, menus, nodes, taxonomy, and users. I'm posting a link to the slides that were presented that helped tie everyhing together.
Drupal is great at a lot of things, one of those being the feeling of your head banging against the wall. Drupal can lead to some headaches when things just do not work right. Troubleshooting and debugging in Drupal doesn't have to be difficult, however. Yet, for some reason, every article I've ever found goes in too deep. I presented this at my user group Drupal 262 as a "back to basics" debugging and troubleshooting.
