Drupal Accessibility Statement

Submitted by admin on Mon, 01/16/2012 - 15:59

As an inclusive community, we are committed to making sure that Drupal is an accessible tool for building websites and that Drupal helps you create websites that are themselves accessible.

This initiative started with advancements with Drupal 7 accessibility. We have committed to ensuring that all features of Drupal core conform with the Worldwide Web Consortium (W3C) guidelines: WCAG 2.0 and ATAG 2.0. Where possible we will also update the previous version of Drupal core, version 6, to enhance its accessibility.

History of the Druplicon logo

Submitted by admin on Mon, 01/16/2012 - 15:58

After Drupal was initially developed, thoughts turned to the creation of a logo. Of course the concept would have to include a drop, or water in general.

The initial idea was simple: a drop within a circle. It was conceived as an "O" in a fluid "drop".

Somewhat later there was an idea to use a cartoon-like drop with a face. Steven Wittens (UnConeD) created a 3D version, but the idea didn't get too far, mainly because 3D is difficult to work with.
