InfoWorld using Drupal

InfoWorld relaunched on Drupal 6 yesterday! Check out their new site at http://infoworld.com. InfoWorld has been around since 1978 and is a well-known resource for IT professionals. I hope they write up a use case because it is a great testament to Drupal 6.

The project was done by Optaros (an Acquia partner), with help from Airbag Industries for the design work. Chris Fuller was the project lead.

Looks great but currently suffers from technical difficulties and therefore the site is in offline mode / unreachable.

To wit, they're using Drupal 6.9: http://www.infoworld.com/CHANGELOG.txt.

Is there a reliable way to programmatically detect Drupal installations?

I use this firefox add-on: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/10493

It detects most CMS's pretty accurately.

Wich is why I think it's an important security measure to block those files at the server level. This makes it harder for automated scripts to detect your CMS.

I thought Infoworld had changed. Didn't occur to me that it was Drupal though! I coming across more and more websites based on Drupal that I'd never thought were. Some of them give be inspiration for my own Drupal sites. I'll have to have a look around to see what modules/features are being used in Infoworld

Tony - thanks for that link. I've been viewing the source to try and find out the CMS of certain websites. That addon looks great.
