TL;DR stands for too long; didn’t read. The editor guides on contain a large amount of information - here are the most important things to know.

New to Drupal? Before you start, we need to get a few terms from the Drupal terminology out of the way. We try to keep away from jargon, but we can't pretend a node isn't a node... so what is a node, after all? Drupal 101 - Before you start explains the main terms you'll encounter in Drupal.

New to editing Drupal websites? The Editor's Quick Start Guide collection will help you to log in and find your way around the Administration User Interface (AdminUI).

Ready to start adding content? First you'll need to learn about Adding new content to your site and Making changes to existing content on your site.

Not sure what content goes where? Our Introduction to content structure and content types will help.

User roles or the "But why can't I ...?" question. Sector uses user roles and privileges to create access to functionality based on experience and knowledge. For editorial staff, the important roles are the Content Editor and Content Administrator roles.

Working with a responsive frontend. The Sector Starter Kit theme is responsive: the display of your content will adjust to the width of your user’s device. This means what you see on your display at work might not be what your user sees on their device. Our guide for creating online content contains some advice on content for responsive design.

Need help? We have listed the most common issues and how to fix them in the First Aid collection.

Need additional support? The team at Sparks Interactive provides Drupal support as well as content and writing services.
