  • Check meta

curl https://www.drupal.org/ | grep 'content="Drupal'
  • Node: Drupal indexes its content using nodes. A node can hold anything such as a blog post, poll, article, etc. The page URIs are usually of the form /node/<nodeid>.

curl drupal-site.com/node/1


Drupal supports three types of users by default:

  1. Administrator: This user has complete control over the Drupal website.

  2. Authenticated User: These users can log in to the website and perform operations such as adding and editing articles based on their permissions.

  3. Anonymous: All website visitors are designated as anonymous. By default, these users are only allowed to read posts.

curl -s http://drupal-site.local/CHANGELOG.txt | grep -m2 ""

Drupal 7.57, 2018-02-21
