This is the guest post from OSTraining. OSTraining is a well known company which provides online training, classroom training and onsite training for Joomla, Drupal and Wordpress. I find it is very helpful to feature posts from OSTraining on Drupal tutorials on our blog. The topic today is "Adding a Weather block to your Drupal site".

One of our students is building a local tourism website. They wanted to show the local weather on the site but without any of the big, ugly branding that often accompanies weather displays.

In this tutorial, we'll show you how to use the Weather module to create a local weather block.

The Weather module works great, but it can be confusing to configure. This tutorial will walk you the set up from installation to publication.

The "Master Drupal in 7 hours" tutorial was released on 2010 for Drupal 6 and it has alot of positive feedbacks. We have revised this Drupal tutorial for Drupal 7 and incorporate it as an ebook: "Master Drupal in 7 hours - the Drupal 7 version".

We have a lot of Drupal books for users and developers, from beginners to experts. What this book makes the difference is that

It is written for Drupal beginners and written BY a Drupal beginner

Being a beginner, I know what all beginners fear. Just like I first learnt ball room dancing, it took me almost 2 months to move like a robot, to struggle with music rythm and sway at the same time. I had to overcome the temptation of quitting several times before I could actually progress and enjoy the dances. Some of my friends, unfortunately, took the quick path to just give it up.

Basically, gallery is designed to showcase products with visual attractions. The first type of product in our mind is images, from photographers. They could be also paintings, products, services or portfolio items. They all have a special requirement in common, the showcase images and effects must be outstanding.

I have created the first Drupal gallery theme 3 years ago, as requested from a friend of mine. Although Wordpress has many awesome tools for gallery effects, but for Drupal lovers, we can still build great Drupal gallery sites using contributed modules from the Drupal.org community such as Galleria, Gallerific, Views Slideshow, Colorbox and etc... 

In this article, I collect and present our 5 best Drupal gallery themes at Symphony Themes.

1. Jarana
