In this video, we’re going to install Drupal core using Simplytest.me. We'll install both Drupal 7 and Drupal 8 and see how "Permanent URLs" work to quickly select a project version.
In order to test Drupal:
- Simply go to simplytest.me
- Type “Drupal” into the project field
- Select “Drupal core”
- Select the version you want to install
- Click “Launch sandbox”
Alternatively, you can use the “Permanent URL” format simplytest.me/project/drupal. If you’d like a specific version of Drupal, you can specify that in the URL as well. For Drupal 7.20 it would be simplytest.me/project/drupal/7.20 and for Drupal 8, it would be simplytest.me/project/drupal/8.x. This can save you a few clicks and get you up and running even faster!
